Remembering A Very Special Day..

Two years ago today I married my gorgeous husband! I really cannot get over how quickly the time has flown, it feels like yesterday!  I thought i'd share some of my favourite photos of the special day;

We had a 1930's Art Deco inspired wedding, I tried to make sure that as many things as possible were either homemade, second-hand or vintage!

Mia looking quite the little Princess!

Our wedding colours were Hunter Green & Black;

1930's Beauford;

The Bridesmaids 

Vintage 1920's place-card holders;

Art-Deco inspired cake;


My alternative-style bouquet, made from vintage beads & brooches;



The Husband also arrived in style!;



I was lucky enough to have TWO wedding gowns - one for the day, by Eddy K - and was actually called "Marina"!! The bridal shop assistant didn't tell me this until after I had made my final choice - I was so surprised it actually brought tears to my eyes - the dress was obviously meant for me!

For the evening I wore a fabulous dress by my favourite designer Jenny Packham, called "Elizabeth";
