Mollie Makes Handmade Wedding


I am so excited to be featured in this beautiful new magazine by Mollie Makes. Handmade Weddings is a special edition featuring some gorgeous ideas for handmade weddings and a selection of real life weddings, including ours. 


We got married in June 2011 and had a very special, weekend long, celebration on a campsite in Sussex. We made nearly everything by hand for our wedding (including our wedding rings) with the help of our family and friends. Buttons were the starting theme of our wedding as I've always loved them!


As we had our wedding ceremony outside we also had to have a legal wedding a couple of days before. We enjoyed this celebration with our siblings and close friends. Charis and Owen and Steve and Evelyne captured this special day so well too. If you haven't seen the little video at the bottom of Steve's blog, it's worth a watch!

This beautiful magazine is full of great craft DIY ideas for weddings or indeed parties, and it also has some wonderful real life weddings to give you plenty of inspiration if you are planning your big day.

I worked in the wedding industry for several years and it's so lovely to have my wedding featured in a magazine that also features so many industry friends. Thank you Mollie Makes for choosing our wedding for this special edition. My children have been so excited to see themselves in print! And thank you Polly for capturing our wedding celebrations so perfectly.
