Good morning, and merry Monday! I hope your weekend was fun filled? We have got beautiful weddings Monday – Wednesday, a competition to win your wedding photography, more thirty under thirty and another whats in my bag. But on to this mornings wedding…

I think Emily is the smiliest bride I have ever blogged. As you will know, I am a bunting fiend and this wedding has plenty, plus fairy-lights in abundance. Tom and Emily’s approach to the flowers is the best way if you want a professional finish but need to cut costs. This is going to ease you in to Monday morning quite beautifully.

We had a hog roast. Salads were ready in bowls on the tables and we had one guest on each table serve the meat from a platter wearing an apron we had designed, which worked really well. Friends and family made homemade cakes for dessert.

Evening buffet food we did ourselves with pork pies, apples and a selection of cheeses. We purchased the drinks ourselves and the catering team ran a bar in the evening.
