wedding of the week

Did you have de ja vu when you looked at the title to this post? Another wedding of the weekend, only a week after the last wedding? 

Well, friends, you read that right. I spent the day on Friday celebrating the wedding of a wonderful friend who I have got to know over the last year, as we have trained together to be teachers.

It is always an honour & privilege to share in a friend's wedding day, and even more so when you are asked to help in some way. I have shared a couple of glimpses into Amy's wedding over the last few months, with a peek at the lace bunting & the trial wedding cake. I finished stitching the 50metres of bunting last week, along with 25 lace cushion covers which were used at the wedding reception, for decorating the hay-bale seating next to the dancefloor.

The making of the wedding cake was the feature of my week last week, and I think it deserves a post to itself, so I'll fill you in on all the details very soon.

The weather forecast for the wedding day was filled with rain, and sadly, on this occasion, they got it right. While you might not wish for rain on your wedding day, it certainly didn't detract from the joy & celebrations.

 The highly tempting treats table, complete with stands made from sections of silver birch trees
 a small section of the lace bunting
 handmade cupcake favours
 beautifully colourful hydrangas for table decorations
 Me & Rebekah, who helped me with cake decoration & transportation, with our creation
 the back half of the marquee had an amazing dancefloor - the only part of the marquee not to get flooded at all
the lovely Lydia (who sang during the wedding ceremony) getting her groove on

We all went home with happy hearts, having loved every minute of Amy & Matt's wedding.
