It seems such a long time ago now that we had our lovely wedding day. It was on a beautiful sunny day in April. I have been saying 'my' lovely day but do have to acknowledge that it was a lovely day for others to, namely the groom, and bridesmaid!
So I have been a bit too long getting around to this post. The aim is to share with you our lovely day but also to say a big thank you to my lovely friends without whom my/our day would not have been so special.
It did turn out to be a bit of a Handmade Wedding.
The first people I want to thank and tell you about are the wonderful Wychbury. They made the flowers in my hair and were kind and patient as I decided what I want and them made them perfectly. They are three clips and I have worn them since.
I just wanted to show you the pillow I made for the rings. My darling daughter carried it so I had to include her name. I bought the fabric from Caro who has this shop Boutonnerie (check out the lovely buttons etc.).
Two of my lovely friends made bracelets for me. I am a bit annoyed with myself that I did not switch the bouquet over as I do not have a photo of one of the bracelets. The one below was a gift from Alison of AMI Designs.
SmittenKitten. She is a friend from the Crafteroo forum. It is a beautifully made using Swarovski beads. I promise I will take a photo and show you when the light is better.
The wonderful Maisy (Jeanette), who has a new shop on etsy ElementallyPrecious , made my earrings and my daughter's matching necklace. They are so beautiful and it was kind of her to think of Mary too.
So here we are the happy three. Because Mary was so much part of our day too.
I would also like to say thank you to my wonderful parents who kindly and lovingly paid for the reception and this wonderful wonderful car to take us to the wedding.
Another thank you is to all my friends from the Uk thread on etsy who were so lovely and sent us a present which included a darling bear for Mary from ClareBears, and the surprise of a miniature rose, choccies and wine when we got to our honeymoon hotel.
The kind and creative Julie of MoaningMinnie also gave us a present which I will write about in another post. Thank you!
I would also like to say a thank you to all my family who came to the wedding (I wish I could have invited more!). Thank you for being there and for the lovely presents. A big big thank you to my sister Claire who helped me on the morning and the day before. Together we made my bridal bouquet and my husband's buttonhole. I used a couple of flowers from the florists, but the flowers from Claire's garden made it a beautiful bouquet.
So thank you everyone. It really was my lovely day.
If I have missed anyone off I am so sorry, please let me know and I will add you.
