Over the summer we had a French wedding to go to. It was all kinds of lovely as weddings usually are – the bride looked beautiful, the groom was handsome, everyone was in a happy friendly mood and the sun shone. Perfect. But this wedding had me whipping out my camera and photographing like a woman possessed – because it was quite simply the prettiest wedding I had ever been to. And what is more, it was all created by the wedding guests – there were no wedding specialists brought in to make the magic happen.
So I am sharing with you here all the beautiful details because they are clever and lovely and with a few tweaks here and there – totally do-able to recreate at home next time you are entertaining and want something simple and pretty. Think handpicked wild flowers, soft antique linen, mismatched chairs and a string of florals and greenery to hang above the table.
This year is whizzing by at such a rate and I always feel like once the summer holidays are over time goes into serious turbo charge mode until Christmas. I sat down to plan the September and October calendar for Lottie is Loving and The Assembly Hall earlier this week and there is barely a day (let alone) a week free (that’s if you don’t include the two weeks of holiday when we plan to return to Australia to see family and friends). Apart from that 😉
