Having a baby with us at an event like this was a new experience for us both and had it's new challenges. Not only did I miss the vows, but also the speeches! Generally he was quiet and slept through the meal which was good, but I was so tired by 8.00 that we left at 8.30 to come home.
So anyway here are some photos from the big day:
Love the 1950s style dress,
Fabulous and eco friendly alternative to flowers, a button bouquet,
Fantastic shoes from Irregular Choice,
Managed to snap this sneaky pic of one of the bridesmaids, how fab is her dress? perfect 1950s retro. Two of the bridesmaids had dresses like this, the other two had the kind that stick out. In the background is a game we played called "Aunt Sally" which involved lobbing a wooden club at a dolls head...don't ask (it's a Cornish thing apparently)!
The beautiful venue; converted barns complete with old beams and beautiful exposed brickwork,
View while breastfeeding Orren,
Floral bunting which was strung up throughout the venue, after the ceremony the registry became the evening reception room and a appliquéd "just married" banner was added,
Button heart decorations which were dotted around the venue, on door handles and nails in the beams,
Loved this original idea for a seating plan, at the top were The Beatles album covers, each cover represented a table with a corresponding cover, underneath each cover image were photos of the people sat at that table,
Fun centre pieces, a bucket filled with sand the decorated with buttons and lolly pops,
Love the colours,
Orren's favour and place names with buttons,
A really original choice for the dinner, rather than silver service or a help yourself buffet each table had a "chef" who received an apron with their name on it, and carved up the meat for everyone on their table,
Cup cake wedding cake, very tasty raspberry and lemon cupcakes with jam/curd in the middle, yummy!
A gorgeous leaping lamb, spring is here!
All in all a great but tiring day, I am now enjoying eating my lolly pop favour! Have you been to any weddings recently? What were they like?
