As much as we like themed photo shoot, you just can’t beat a real wedding. Seeing another bride and groom’s big day is the perfect inspiration for anyone who is engaged as you get to see exactly how someone did it in the real world.
Today’s blog features a wedding photographed by Charlie Flounders and we think you’ll agree that this Mad Hatter’s Tea Party themed event is not only very pretty, but also very personal to the couple.
This was such a lovely relaxed, cheeky and fun wedding to be involved in.
The Bride (Amy) was warm and relaxed throughout, despite the fact she must have put a HUGE amount of work into the look and feel of the day.
The wedding was in September and the whole day was at the exclusive use farm venue Wethele Manor Farm in Warwickshire.
The ceremony was outdoors, and the reception in the large marquee they have out back.
Amy had handmade all of the décor. This included: bunting, loads of gorgeous pastel tissue paper pom poms of all sizes, eat me and drink me tags for centerpieces and table décor/favours, signs, card collection “suitcase”, memory dictionary, sweet cart decor…. The list goes on!
Amy also handmade her own button bouqet, and 2 for the bridesmaids, and collected all of the crockery from local vintage shops and markets. Since the wedding she has setup a business making all of these things for others and renting out her vintage crockery to other couples (Vintage n Vows)
They had a buffet wedding breakfast all sourced from M&S pre order service and a hog roast in the evening provided by the venue.
Her gorgeous dress was from Proposals bridal studio in Coventry.
Sparklers finished the evening, but not for all guests as most were very enthusiastically tearing up the dance floor by then.
Amy specifically asked me for vintage feel sepia finished photos to match with the theme of the wedding.
