Hello sunshine! This afternoon’s delightful DIY wedding is so pretty and cheerful that I couldn’t wait to share it with you.  Erin and Carl made sure that their big day remained personal and on budget by hand crafting every little detail (including a rather beautiful wedding dress!) to awesome effect.

Erin says:  We got engaged in August 2010 and were married on 13th April 2013 at South Causey Inn, Stanley.  The colour scheme was yellow and grey, with a rustic DIY feel, as almost everything was handmade.

We chose South Causey Inn for it’s beautiful appearance, friendly staff and the appeal of the wedding prices all being a package so you could easily see how much everything was going to cost from the word go.

My outfit was a vintage lace style dress and top combo. It was made up of a cream maxi dress and cream lace top which were both bought it from Zara!  I also wore some gorgeous yellow Clarks (of all places) shoes which I’m still totally in love with.

I handmade my bridesmaids’ and flower girls’ dresses out of matching Michael Miller fabrics in grey with white flowers for the bridesmaids and yellow with white flowers for the flower girls. The groomsmen wore yellow ties from Ebay, grey tweed style waistcoats from New Look, charcoal trousers from Jeff Banks and white slim fit shirts from M&S.

Our wedding was very much a personal thing close to our hearts, so pretty much everything was handmade including place cards, centre pieces, bunting, button holes, confetti cones & our own interpretation of a guest book to name just a few

Our guests blew bubbles as we walked back down the aisle, before treating them to Pimms in cute jam jars.

Choosing my favourite moment is a tough one!  Obviously seeing Carl at the end of the aisle was amazing but I think the first time I saw the room all set up and could see everything we had handmade and could see that all the hard work and effort we had but in over the last 18 months or so had totally paid off.

We had a three tier rainbow sponge cake, it was white with grey and yellow bunting around the outside and we made personalised cake toppers. We got it from a cake shop called Ice’n’easy
