Earlier, this summer, I went to Sarah and Jodi’s wedding beautiful shabby chic vintage inspired wedding. Sarah is a real crafty chick at heart and her wedding was like a Pinterest board that included a few of her own handmade touches I couldn’t not share it.
You may recognise Sarah from one of my photos on the main page of the website. She started sewing a couple of years ago with a basic sewing machine and she self taught herself the basics of sewing. She then took one of our dressmaking classes and is now making lots of dresses for her little daughter Belle as well as friends children too.
Sarah had started to make her daughter’s and god-daughter’s flower-girl dresses but time caught up her as it does with every bride. I hope she finishes them off though one day, maybe to give to Belle for her wedding when she grows up because they were really looking beautiful.
Here are some photos of the big day. The wedding reception took place at Old Brook Barn. Isn’t the scenery just beautiful?
The bridesmaids looked lovely – each in the same dress but styled differently. Sarah and Jodi’s gorgeous little munchkin competed for attention with her mummy!
Sarah made the ring cushion using jute, lace, button and some jute twine. So pretty! She also turned her hand to some stamping and crafted up these cute tags for the groom’s men.
Loved these hangers for the bridal party
The rosé vodka punch and the lemonade were served in mini milk jars and paper straws – swoon!
Sophie and I with our respective bumps! Sophie made that hat can you believe it? Quite the milliner at heart – I keep telling her to quit the day job and make hats! I also loved these these metal buckets with chalkboard paint (labels) on them and her handmade photo prop moustaches – adorable.
Our favours – made by Sarah. How easy are they – jars covered with lace, jute / twine and hessian. I loved this. Probably one of my favourite crafty items of the day. Mine is sitting at Tea & Crafting being used for crochet hooks.
Flip flops for our sore feet at the end of the night. Most of them were snapped up as soon as we entered the dining area. I changed into them almost immediately. On the right – Vintage charm pointing us in the right direction to the part-tay!
I loved this – propped on the bar for everyone to see. All their wedding stationary was done in this style. See also my name place setting another lovely touch.
Sarah made this lovely frame with all the polaroid photos taken at her wedding – a totally shabby chic way to remind you of the day!
