Shabby Chic-tastic!

I got married in June to my husband Elliot and am still a bit obsessed with weddings.  I absolutely loved planning my wedding down to the last little detail.

We got married in an old tithe barn so wanted the whole look to be English country garden/shabby chic/vintage.  It was very much a DIY wedding and we made lots of things ourselves.  Here are some examples, click on the image for  a closer look:

Clockwise from top left
The kids party bags full of colouring books, sweets etc.
The favours were mini jars of jam with each guests name on a tiny label
I made metres of colourful bunting to decorate the barn
We collected cakestands for our table centres which were decorated with rose heads and yummy rose water cupcakes
I did all the flowers myself like this big wall basket arrangement
It rained all day but this is one of my favourite photos
We had a pinata to entertain the kids although it was bashed by a few adults as well!
My aunt made our cake which was decorated with some vintage ribbon I found
We made all the bridesmaid dresses and my wedding dress and veil
