Afternoon all!  I do hope you've popped by this morning's inspiration boards, and left your top 5 reasons to make you smile, here already All You Need Is Love ~ A Budget Friendly, DIY Barn Wedding... ()

I told you I'd try to squeeze in a lovley real wedding today and I mean to be true to my word. This lovely DIY/budget friendly wedding is such a breath of fresh air, so cute, so peppered with pretty little details.

Scott & Danielle got married on 25th June 2011 at the High House Farm Brewery in Matfen, Northumberland.

The couple were very careful to keep an eye on the budget when planning their wedding.  Danielle's wedding dress was infact a purchase from EBay and cost less than £100! And I adore Danielle's Whichgoose headpiece – great choice lady! All You Need Is Love ~ A Budget Friendly, DIY Barn Wedding... ()

"We were on a pretty tight budget so I spent a few weeks scouring Ebay for dresses. I knew that I wanted a short dress as I’m not the tallest of girls, so when I spotted this one I knew I had to go for it.

And at £80, it was a snip too!"

"Kim from Fine and Funky Events provided all the fab birdcages, watering cans, vintage bike, signs, photo corner and bunting.

I made some hand painted signs and extra bunting and we also brought along some bits and bobs from home like the old suitcases. It all had a very rustic feel to fit in with the farm…."

"My Mum gave me away. My Dad passed away when I was 17 so that was one of the parts of the day when everyone got a bit emotional.

She also did a reading which was lyrics from a Nick Drake song (Northern Sky) that my Dad loved, so we all shed a tear during that…"

"We sent out Sweet Pea seeds with all our invites and asked guests to bring along their flowers with them. We had a sweet pea station on arrival so that they could put their flowers into jars and bottles that we had collected. My Mum did the bouquets, birdcages and watering cans and did such an amazing job!"

"Scott and I had been together for only 2 years when he proposed to me. We’d just moved back to Newcastle after living in Glasgow for a while and he took me to the beloved Tyne Bridge to ask me. After I’d got over the shock and said yes (obviously) we had a rather exquisite pint of cider in the pub. It’s all glamour with us! I think that says it all really though- we’re relaxed down to earth people and we wanted a relaxed down to earth day. We had the best day of our lives and our friends and family all commented on what a good time they’d had. Perfect!"

"We didn’t really have favours but we did have a sweetie table filled with treats for people to help themselves. We also had an ice cream stand which came from Vallum Farm- just down the road from the venue. http://www.vallumfarm.co.uk/"

Words of Wedded Wisdom….

"You don’t have to spend a fortune! We had a very small budget but we had an amazing day and didn’t feel that we missed out on anything. All we wanted was for our friends and family to have a great day that they would remember. The day was definitely ‘us’ and that’s all we wanted really!

We’re both quite relaxed people so we wanted our day to feel like that too. The venue dictated how our day looked and felt and I suppose if we had any theme it was ‘Vintage style English Country’/ ‘Piss up in a Brewery!’. To be honest though, we just picked things that we liked and hoped that it would all go together!"

  1. This is so cute, her dress is lovely, you’d never have believed it was just £80, it suits her down to the ground.

  2. Top marks to Scott and Danielle for proving that you can have a wonderful day on a small budget – it all looks ace. Nice that your Mum gave you away Danielle, and she looked terrific too. x

  3. I love the idea of getting your guests to grow some flowers from seeds sent out with the invites and for them to bring them to the wedding! Gets the guests involved from the very beginning – and knowing my lot, bring out a real competitive streak of who can grow the best – and helps add to the day’s prettiness and on a budget! Brilliant x

  4. This is so lovely, proof you absolutely do not need to spend a fortune!
    I agree with the others, more of the same please ! (-:

  5. Aww so thrilled with this! Danielle & Scott were a lovely couple to work with and their wedding was beautiful. I’m very inspired by their DIY style and creativity!
    Thanks Annabel for this lovely write up

  6. you are the one that decides on how much to spend on everything…i mean you and your fiance.
    and you might want to make a list of your necessities and your wants
    There is a website that may assist you and it’s free, http://www.favorablewedding.net
    Hope you can figure everything out without going over your budget
    and congratulations

  7. I love the look and feel of this wedding – it just goes to show that big budgets don’t necessarily equal a brilliant day. Something beautiful can easily be achieved on a far smaller budget, if you put the effort in, so well done Scott and Danielle. Congratulations!

  8. So touched by this wedding! It’s stunning and so similar to what I’m planning, almost exactly a year to the day after theirs!! 23rd June 2012.
    Am just wondering how Danielle got her whichgoose headband delivered??? I’ve been eyeing up the exact one but they can’t deliver to the Uk… What trick did she use…? Xx

  9. Wow, so beautiful.
    We’re planning our wedding on a (teeny)budget at the moment and I feel inspired by Danielle and Scott:)
    It just goes to show what you can achieve and how beautiful your wedding can be with a small budget.
