Good morning everyone A Candy Anthony 50's Wedding Dress for a DIY, Colour-Fest Wedding... (Weddings ) I do hope this email finds you well and rested after your weekend.  As usual, I'm opening up the week with a simply wonderful wedding, the kind that makes my heart skip a beat not only for it's visual prettiness, but the fact this couple, Martha and Tom, set out to create a beautiful day for everyone around them, children and all – now that always makes me happy A Candy Anthony 50's Wedding Dress for a DIY, Colour-Fest Wedding...

The couple tied the knot in the Summer this year, and Martha wore the most gorgeous Candy Anthony 1950's style lace overly dress.

This day is such a colour-burst of fun and I just adore the home-made, DIY nature of it all…

"We wanted the day to be quite heartfelt and relaxed, where children could play and the older guests could sit and gossip.  

Both of us are product developers and we love detail so made sure that there was enough little things that we cared about – red stripe beer to match the table covers, 96 cut glass vintage vases, red and white butchers string tieing lace netting to the benches, party festoon light and Chinese good luck charms picked up in Guangzhou. We loved our day and more so when we look at photos of our friends and family among the chaos of colour…"

"Trying to decide on one colour scheme was not going to be possible so we went for bright and chose every colour under the sun!  From the beginning we knew that we wanted to make as much as possible from the hand cut liberty backed glass decorations to the sewn circle streamers – everything had a touch of us in it…"

"We made and painted large pub signs, stitched table clothes, made matching pillows for the pub benches, giant windmills and sourced 100 different (and slightly imperfect) hankies from China and well as some 1970s beer mats for the tables.

We were so blessed with so many wonderful people helping from family growing flowers (started in November!) to friends endlessly making tissue pom poms and  endlessly tying ribbons to gates/trees/arches. I guess the inspiration was a bit vintage, a bit carnival and very english village fete!"

"We really wanted people to come to the reception and feel special, not to go wow- more to feel that we had created everything for their enjoyment. We also borrowed a lot of props with good friends lending us cake stands, linen, and one extra special friend making us a stunning photo booth.

"As we had a lot of family and friends it was really important to us that the overall feeling was fun and that everyone could cut loose without feeling they needed to be formal. We chose a village pub with a large garden so that we could capture that special Saturday afternoon pub feeling where everyone is just simply enjoying themselves and each others company…."
