Have you ever wanted to steal someone’s hair? Katrina, I want yours. This wedding is full of gorgeous glittery metallic details a beautiful wedding gown (with pockets) and a handsome groom. The couple did quite a lot of DIY for their day, but the effort of gilding everything and anything has been most appreciated.

It was all a brilliant day, but I really loved the quiet 5 minutes with my new husband while the guests got seated for dinner, and then walking in together as we were introduced as Mr and Mrs and seeing all of our friends and family clapping and cheering for us.

Spreadsheets are a great way of getting organized and keeping track. If you plan to make lots of stuff yourself like me make sure you give yourself lots of time and ask for help.
