Your favourite wedding story: Making all the decorations myself. I loved researching many different ideas and finding out how to make things. I love being crafty so I enjoyed every aspect of it. I enjoyed making the tissue paper pom poms for the main hall, although they took A LOT longer to ‘fluff’ than I ever imagined. My favourite project was my bouquet which took me hours and I had to learn lots of new embroidery stitches. It’s wonderful having it to keep forever, I love it so much. Once I’d completed it I then decided to match it with the mens’ boutonnières.
