Wedding decoration DIY- part 1

We had our wedding at the farm so it seemed only fitting to do a lot of the decoration ourself.

The day I became a farmer’s wife- part 1

On the 16th September- I officially became a farmer’s wife.

We were getting married in my local village before heading back to a farm field for a DIY rustic style wedding in a Tipi.

It was hard work but I really enjoyed adding those little touches that were personal to use.
