Good morning! We have another beautiful wedding to share today, it seems to be a while since we last had a Jenny Packham bride so I am thrilled to share this beautiful bride in her embellished gown. Today’s wedding includes lots of beautiful flowers, egg jarping ( I had no idea either, I’ve left a link) and big brass bands. Emma and Dan fully embraced wedding planning and pulled together their incredible day in just six months. Doffing hat to you both, it looked like a cracker of a day.

For me this was when we had walked through the confetti tunnel and were followed by our surprise brass band. We had worked so hard to keep them a secret, just the whole moment coming together, I had just got married, I was surrounded by my friends and family and now this amazing band was playing us to our drinks was just perfect and exactly how we had pictured.

We had New York brass band for the day entertainment and  in the evening we had Tom Rocks and the replicants. Both of which were fantastic and really made our wedding day different. All the guests were very complimentary.

We hired Rachel Chippendale to do our decorating. We wanted a very relaxed, rustic, romantic feel to the day and Rachel created this for us.

We wanted to do something personal and so we decided to go with a “egg Jarping” theme. It’s a tradition that Dan’s family play every Easter and even have a trophy for the winner that has been in the family since 1960.  So we arranged for the favours to be wooden egg cups and every guest had an egg with their name on it as the place name. Before the wedding breakfast started we had everyone take part in an egg Jarping contest, this made all the more special when Dan’s 18month old nephew was the overall winner.

Our catering team was Eat me drink me. We had an afternoon tea feel to the reception drinks, serving prosecco beers and cream scones. For the wedding breakfast, we had a sharing board of hummus, meats olives etc. Main course was Lamb and for the vegetarians Asparagus risotto. This was followed by a trio of desserts, Lemon tart, Crème Brule and Chocolate pudding.

In the evening we had mini versions of mac and cheese, pie and mash, fish and chips. The food was great and very well presented, the team who prepared and ensured all our guests were fed were amazing and really made the day.

We turned our wedding round in 6 months, we sectioned out tasks between us that played to our strengths.

Best tip would be to trust the experts, other than my ideas and vision those who were responsible for flowers, decorating, make up etc I trusted them to do what they do best. I don’t know what flowers go and are in season etc they do, so I trusted them to be the expert. Not only did this mean I could focus on other things but it was a great surprise for me on the day too.    

Where did you find your inspiration? Mostly through blogs such as these, pintrest was really helpful. The team at my wedding venue were a fantastic help and source of information, they really helped me to find suppliers, ideas of how things had been done before etc.
