A Handmade Wedding 14th May 2016

Sorry for being really quiet lately but I have a good reason... I got married a couple of weeks ago and wanted to share some of my pictures with you all. Thank you to the lovely Elli Dean for the gorgeous photography http://rutlandphotographer.co.uk

The wedding transport which we decorated ourselves with flowers, ribbons and bunting meet 'Betsy'...

I was luckily enough to commission beautiful jewellery from the talented Judith Brown jewellery who specialises in handmade bridal collections with an elegant vintage feel. http://www.judithbrownjewellery.co.uk

In the lead up to the wedding me and my girls made lot's of bunting on my Crafty Hen to decorate the  hall, paper cones for confetti and Suffolk puffs to accessorise their shoes...

Myself and my dear friends Soph and Szilvi did all the flowers which seemed a huge task at first but with plenty of practice, planning and advice from Szilvi's expert flower arranger Mum I think we did a pretty good job!

The church windows looked beautiful simply with Gypsophilia and pillar candles which we lit during the service.

Naturally I wanted to make ceramic decorations, favours, tea lights and a cake topper which took a lot of time but was so worth it. With all my vintage props and my yellow colour theme it all started to  fit together nicely (after a year of planning and lots of Pinterest inspiration boards)

And lastly my beautiful cake created by my good friend Stephen..a beautiful job on the icing and sugar craft flowers!

We both had a beautiful day and enjoyed every minute of the day and I would love to do it all again! I absolutely loved the planning and I was in my element making all of the ceramic pieces. It's all very inspiring so watch this space for some new ranges www.katiealmond.co.uk
