Whimsical DIY Wedding

The first thing that caught my eye about Hannah’s wedding was her awesome baby’s breath bouquet wrapped with colorful ribbon. I had never seen anything like it before and thought it was absolutely beautiful. Hannah and Dave were married almost 5 years ago, but looking through their lovely images it is clear to me they were definitely ahead of the times when it came to throwing a DIY wedding on a budget. I absolutely adored Hannah’s description of their celebration…

We were young, ridiculously, maybe even naively in love, with no money. It was low key, handmade and included feathers, sandals and a barbecue. It was specially special because of our friends and family who pitched in for every SINGLE part of the day. The invites were designed by us, screen printed on to fabric, then sewn by my mister on to pieces of card. The dress was the weddings only extravagance…Georgio Armani. Worn with colorful jewelery and flat pink sandals. Flowers being way out of our budget, I turned to my old friend fabric scraps and literally covered the church and reception grounds with bunting and ribbon.
