Jack and Hannah 028

I have been waiting so patiently to share this wedding, it is a stunner. Mainly because everyone that attended is gorgeous…but the flowers. OH THE FLOWERS. You shall ooo and ahh your way down the page and be left feeling utterly happy, and slightly jealous that you opted for a cold winter wedding rather than something outdoorsy and warm. Just me? This is my first time blogging Matt Horan‘s work (related to Niall? I shall find out, probably not though) and I must say, I snapped up 2 of his weddings to share with you after seeing only the first images. 

Jack and Hannah 001 Jack and Hannah 002 Jack and Hannah 003 Jack and Hannah 004 Jack and Hannah 005 Jack and Hannah 006 The DecorCountry garden, vintage theme. Hannah’s upbringing in the country and love of tea and Jack’s passion for cycling focused the theme of the day. Teapots on tables for flower arrangements made by family members. Ladder for table plan – table names spelt out a story about a place we have been to together and holds special memories. Bunting designed and made by Bib & Tucker www.facebook.com/BibandTucker London (Facebook) 

Marquee – Time Marquees –  Time-marquees.co.uk  a bespoke design with opaque windows to feel as though we were in the garden and a reveal curtain for band/first dance  gave it that extra wow factor . 

Vintage bicycle with lavender and retro table tennis/punch and Judy games area. Barrel Bar – Taddle Farm Tents to complete the vintage, country feel (Taddlefarmtents.co.uk)

Boogie Bus – transported guests from the church to the reception. Teacup candles – Danielle Lea-White

And also, following the candle lit path down to my secret Moroccan yurt for our wedding night. 

Jack and Hannah 097 The EntertainmentSweet Crisis – live band from Cambridge who played an acoustic set on hay bales during the drinks reception, followed by a three hour set including the first dance.

Evernote app was my saving grace –  I could keep all my notes/to do lists and reminders/ emails suppliers docs all in one place

Involve family in the preparations – it is such a  special time and  they all loved being getting stuck in 

Decide you theme early and around something you love, for example my love of the country/vintage and tea  and then the décor/outfits and design all come together 

Be sure to have a mindful moment on the day with your partner to take in the moment
