Hello all! Back to blogging gorgeous weddings, starting off with this cute one from the cotswolds, for under £10k. All suppliers involved are now at the end of the post and I am toying with the idea of shifting real weddings to mini posts on the SYGM instagram too. Will look in to it, blogging is changing and I not sure which way to go with it all at the moment. The blog of course will remain but I feel we need to shift our focus a little bit. Do you still read blogs or mainly instagram?

Stationary : DIY! (Thank you Pinterest)
Decor : also DIY thanks to Pinterest which has some amazing inspiration! We love the outdoors which is why we picked the venue because of the all the green grounds for the photos! The theme was quite natural, so focus on beautiful flowers (pink roses were the first flowers Chris ever bought for me) and lots of wood and tributes to Nature and the countryside.
Food & drink : provided by the venue and we had a huge hog roasts with trays of delicious roast vegetables and potatoes! (Calorie counting had stopped so we definitely enjoyed the food and cake!)
Wedding Favours: little pic and mix bags
Honeymoon destination: Montenegro
Favourite moment: Groom’s: The most special moment was turning and seeing my bride walk down the aisle to me, and dancing to 80’s music with all our friends.
Bride’s : The most special moment was also as I walked down the aisle to my husband to be! All the planning was behind us and here it was all there and ready for us to just do it! I had a proud and feeling very lucky moment sat at the top table looking at all the friends and family we are so lucky to have with us at our wedding.
Budget: £10k and we just about stuck to it!
Tips: Groom’s: don’t annoy your wife!
Bride’s : Lists!!! Keep track of what you do and don’t need to do. Always remember to keep both of yourself dream day at the front of your mind and don’t feel pressured to make everyone else’s perfect day it’s for the two of you. Keep reminding yourself it is such an exciting time and remember what really matters; not arguing over table centres.. but looking forward to the day you get to marry you’re fiancé!!
Inspiration: a lot of Pinterest boards!
