I have given most the details on the big day including lots of detail on many of the things I made. This final post covers the finishing touches from the table plan and table decorations to the gifts.
Pampers recently launched a new premium protection nappy claiming to have the softest comfort and unbeatable skin protection- it’s even backed by the British Skin Foundation- so what’s all the fuss about?
Every wedding I have been to has had a paper guest book, and I always think its such a shame when there are empty pages and only half the book gets filled. As we weren’t having a big wedding I decided to do something different and made a wooden guest book that could be displayed afterwards.
As well as the signs I made several things for the tipi including- milk churn displays, confetti bucket, tipi decoration inside, table plans and a guest book.
We had our wedding at the farm so it seemed only fitting to do a lot of the decoration ourself. From the table plan, to flower decorations, signs and the Tipi decoration, it was all hands on deck. As we planned well in advance I used the summer to pull things together and then friends and family to help with the decoration in the run up to the wedding.
Everyone knows the foot wear of choice for a farmer is the classic green welly! That being said there are so many makes, versions and colours available now a days.
During the summer we both wear boots but for the most part of the year in Britain we wear wellies so I thought I would share our preference.
The reception was held back at the farm in one of the fields. We had an area set up for parking and camping and then mowed a walk way across the field to the tipi.
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. We had organised everything ourselves and tried to do as much as possible to save some money as well as making everything more personal to us. The farm had had a tidy up and Tom has put more effort into mowing the field than I have ever seen him put into anything else. With everything ready to go the Tipi went up on the Wednesday, giving us 3 days to decorate away. Myself, Tom and lots of family and friends help to decorate the Tipi and get everything ready. It was hard work but I really enjoyed adding those little touches that were personal to use.
