Wedded Bliss…..

While chatting to an old friend this morning, I was given this amazing site to look at ….it was her niece’s wedding photos and I was absolutely blown away. The whole concept was designed by the bride, who is incredibly creative and who has her own business- “Cupcakes by Taryn” .

Her Facebook page is full of the yummiest photos of her decadent cupcakes…….but back to the wedding. With help from members of her family, the bride put this inventive wedding together, full of personal and meaningful touches which I believe make a wedding truly special to all who attend. It was not a huge wedding-about 60 people I think, but it was really big on style and spectacular ideas! I loved it and asked her permission to show a few images  on my blog….take a look….

This was such a great idea for guests….and each guest got to take home the white fleece blanket as a wedding favour!


An ice cream parlour..I mean seriously!!! What a great idea for a desert ………..

The happy couple….the dress was made by the mother of the bride and the bride and bridesmaids bouquets were made by my friend….this is one talented family let me tell you…

I just adore the white paper lanterns hanging from the roof of the veranda…the reception was held in the bride’s mother’s garden and I think this might be the veranda of their house….just darling!


What would a garden celebration be without Pimms? Aren’t the “glasses” lovely?


Simple and yet so effective……
