Morning all. Fingers crossed but I think we are back to our regular schedule as I should have electricity all week. This morning I am sharing a beautiful travel themed wedding. Vicki and Richard steeped the day with their love of travelling the globe, from maps to holiday snaps. They had it all. And oh how I adore a confetti shot!

Travel theme as we both love to travel and spend most of our spare time trying to conquer the globe! We had a slideshow of holiday snaps playing throughout, map table runners, airplane confetti on the table, vintage postcards. Our save the dates were a luggage tag and the invites were a boarding pass, complete with a travel ticket envelope.
This was provided by The Kings Chapel. As neither of us are that fussed about Champagne, we had Mojito’s for our drinks reception (classic, passionfruit and raspberry). We are well known amongst friends for being mojito obsessed so it just felt more us to have that.
We donated money to two charities that are important to us – Cancer Research and Tree of Hope. We were able to purchase some pins from Cancer Research so people still had something to take home with them.
Other than actually getting married, dancing in the evening like a loon with all of our friends.
Enjoy it and don’t spend ages agonising over everything. We got engaged in December and married in July so proof that you don’t need to spend 2 years planning it – if you do that it will never live up to expectations. Also the less people involved the less stressful it is. It is the one time you can be selfish and have what you want.
Where did you find your inspiration? We didn’t try to be anyone but us, so we looked to the things that we like and is important to us as a couple.
