Our Wedding Day




























Source: Marianne Taylor
Our wedding photos by Marianne Taylor are finally here. We are over the moon with them, and we loved looking through them all to relive the day. Our wedding day was just perfect, and went better than planned. The weather was absolutely stunning, which was the biggest surprise as it was raining on the week up to it! Marianne captured our day perfectly, and we were so happy to have her as part of our day.

The main things we wanted for the day were: to ideally get married in Cornwall, to get married at a beautiful venue preferably outside, and for it to be Yellow & Grey. When we first visited our venue, we fell in love straight away. It was everything that we wanted. We instantly felt relaxed, and we knew this was where we wanted to get married. We went for a rustic theme due to getting married in a barn, however we added splashes of yellow and grey to make the decor 'pop'.

Our day was very DIY. I loved every second of creating decor & styling objects for our big day to make it more 'us'. We made about 80% of our big day from making all the stationery, the signs, the table runners and hay bale covers, to the place name holders (I illustrated each individual guest!), table plan, jute string wrapped vases, CD's & home made strawberry jam favours, the bridesmaids brooches on the cardigans, the pom poms, wool wrapped letters, straw flags, doily menus, painted cake topper & bunting, mustache on sticks, mad-libs guest book sheets, cheese cake flags, string balls, posters and jar labels. I did warn you it was very DIY. 

However, one of my favourite bits was our wedding cake which was made and decorated by my Mum. She should become professional! It tasted amazing!

I am glad I saw everything to the end as it truly finished our day off. When we set our venue up the day before, it just made everything worth it. Seeing it all together. I would not change anything about our wedding day....at all! It truly was perfect. 

Most importantly though, I got to marry my best friend, who is also the most caring, handsome man on this planet. We got to share the day with the people we love the most and we were both so overwhelmed by the response we got from our family and friends. 

This day made me realise how much I LOVE weddings, and you never know where that might lead...
