A little late Friday afternoon treat for you lovely readers. Joanne and Stuart's divine and glamorous winter wedding took place on 14 December last year at Bury Saint Edmunds in Suffolk. This is such a sweet wedding, full of handmade touches and elegant vintage references.
"We very much stuck to the vintage style that inspires our home furnishings – we loved collecting various gems from car boot sales and charity shops. For our reception, we put a tipi in a field near the church where we got married.
It was such a wonderful day – I think my favourite parts were walking down the aisle and the speeches."

"Stuart and I met at school. We've been together for 10 years and we got engaged in Sardinia. Our engagement lasted 15 months."
"We did all the flowers ourselves! It was great fun going to the wholesalers and arranging them with the bridesmaids the day before."
"I instantly loved the way it made me feel!"
"I wore a birdcage veil that cost me just £10 on EBay! I fitted the veil to the headpiece myself. The headpiece came from the same boutique I bought my dress : Miss Bush Bridal."
"Our photographer was Mark Tattersall, who is truly brilliant, unassuming, professional & extremely talented.”
"My mum made all the cakes and biscuits which we displayed on a cake table with vintage cake stands and a lace tablecloth."
"For our first dance, we had 'Hey Ho' by The lumineers. I just love the lyrics – 'I belong with you, you belong with me, your my sweetheart.'"
Words of Wedded Wisdom…
“Stick to your decisions, even if other people think your crazy! It's your wedding!
We also regret not having our wedding filmed.”
What an absolutely gorgeous day! So beautifully photographed by one of my personal favourite UK wedding photographers, Mark Tattersall.
Huge congratulations to you both, Joanne and Stuart, and thanks so much for allowing us to share your day.
