Marrying your true love really is the best feeling in the world.
I’ll never forget walking into the church and seeing my husband, Mark, waiting for me, not to mention the smiling faces of all our friends and family. To think of it now makes my heart skip a beat.
This week, Mark and I celebrate our seventh wedding anniversary and it seems like the perfect opportunity to share a few of my most precious memories from the day.
We were married in the church in the village where I grew up. I spent my childhood there, running up and down the aisles. Many moons ago, during a family service, I may even have pretended to be ballerina using the altar as a bar. As you can imagine, my Mum was delighted!
Mark and I wanted our wedding to be full of memorable details. I was a dedicated DIY bride, handmaking all our stationery with the help of my fabulous bridesmaid and lifelong friend, Lucy. There were plenty of other projects too.
I don’t want to go on too much – the photos tell a better story than I ever could – but here are some of the highlights…
Our reception took place at Guyers House in Corsham. It was perfect; a stunning venue with a warm, cosy feel. I wish we could have stayed forever!
Having spent 10 years living in London, we decided to transport all our guests in a vintage double-decker bus. They loved it and so did we!
Our favours were handmade chutney for the boys and gorgeous pink polka dot ceramic hearts for the girls.
We visited Morocco before the wedding and were so inspired by the beautiful décor we created a themed chill out area in the evening.
I wore my dream dress by Jenny Packham. It was a last-minute purchase, but by far the best one!
We spent three wonderful weeks in Italy and it was pure bliss!
I’d love to hear about your wedding day, whether past, present or future. Will you be adding any DIY details?
