Have I shown you our venue?

I'm sure I must've done but here are some more shots of the beautiful Butley Priory...

Just one of the beautiful windows...

The stairs I had to negotiate in my dress and heels:

The bits and pieces

A little look at the little bits and bobs that added to the feel of our wedding day like favours, guestbook on so on.

The tables:

That's probably enough photos for one post. Hope you've enjoyed seeing a snapshot of our wedding. We're seeing our official photos on Saturday which I'm very excited about and I'll post some here when we get them.

Starting with my outfit...

Dress: From my local Pronuptia. It was the shop sample so not only was it a good price, I could've taken it home straight away if I'd needed to. I think I tried about 50 dresses in total although this was only the 2nd I put on. I tried vintage dresses, straight, meringues, ones with straps, halterneck and so on. But this was the one I kept coming back to.
Veil: Handmade by me. There was a tutorial in the summer issue of UK Handmade. It was so easy, honestly!

Haircomb: a vintage brooch attached to a comb. Also easy peasey. Best photo I can find at the moment of it but I'll find another one if I can:

Shrug: handmade by the very talented moocowhandknits.

Shoes: Karen Millen (will upload a photo when I can find one)

Necklace was from a local shop (handmade) and earrings were a 30th birthday gift from my mother-in-law.

So there we have it, my outfit. What would you like to hear about next?

Well what a fortnight...

Lions, elephants, leopards; sunsets, cocktails and snorkelling; beautiful dress, handsome husband and lots of dancing. Safari honeymoon; Mauritius; and the best day of my life.

I can't believe it's all over after 20 months of planning. 20 months of hoping and excitement. Oh it was so worth it.

I'll do a full recap on all the wedding elements soon: my dress, his suit, the crafty details, the colours, the flowers, the handmade purchases and the dancing. But in the meantime here are a few photos to wet your appetite.
