Dainty Indie English Wedding
Our next affair comes from an adorable couple across the pond. They were sent to us from the oh-so-talented photographer, Rosie Parsons. The bride and groom celebrated with family and friends in a doily and lace clad TEE PEE in the yard of the groom’s uncle. How romantic is that? This wedding and all the dainty details makes my heart go pitter patter.
From the bride. It’s very weird – but I didn’t actually think about a certain theme – or feel, I just wanted something very individual to Jon and I. I knew I wanted something pretty, relaxed, happy – and not too stiff or contrived – but for it to have a bit of personality!
There was no set theme or colour, it was very organic. I bought the bridesmaid dresses early on and that kind of set a tone for the colours, which were pale neutral pastels. I kept all of the decoration in the teepees to white, as I knew my flowers were going to be the main colours inside.
I hand made the pom poms, hand stamped the order of service, and bought all decorations and decorated everything myself.
Any advice for brides planning their weddings now? Start collecting decoration bits and pieces early on, so that you have lots of nice things to choose from, and don’t have to worry about going out and getting it all at the last minute. Check out wedding blogs for inspiration – also fashion magazines, such as Jalouse and Japanese Vogue.
