Merry Wednesday lovely reader. Week progressing OK? I am currently writing this up whilst wrapped in a multitude of layers so its always nice to blog a pretty, sunny wedding. Alice and Will’s day was exceptionally relaxed, full of lots of personal details. I love that Will wore a tux. There needs to be more tuxes at weddings.

I had tissues made in little personalised boxes for the ceremony, I had wooden fans out during the ceremony too as it was so hot! We also did personalised chocolates for after the meal and then the trusty box of flip flops for the evening ( which went down a treat)

Arhh! So many … It has to be meeting Will at the end of the aisle, it was just perfect. Receiving my flowers in the room before the ceremony was amazing, they were exactly how I pictured them.

We flew to Orlando for two weeks and were big kids then we flew to Miami for a week for some relaxation! It was perfect! 

Alice-Will-LowRes423 Alice-Will-LowRes426 Alice-Will-LowRes429 Alice-Will-LowRes430 advice

Make it personal! Everything! The day is about you two so let it reflect that, don’t get sucked into the idea that you have to follow certain traditions or lay out of the day. It’s your day make it about everything you love, which for us was music, food and family. 

Where did you find your inspiration? I found a lot of inspiration from Instagram! I knew I wanted a relaxed summer time BBQ wedding so I used things like #diywedding #summerwedding #relaxedwedding. And then the fabulous Pinterest of course!

    This summer wedding was way too gorgeous. I am in love with these brilliant wedding snaps. At some outdoor LA venues I am also going to get married in this year. I am really excited about the charming wedding decorations for my fall themed ceremony.
