Josie & Nick were incredibly blessed on their wedding day – not only because they got to say “I do”, but also because the whole family and friends pitched in to make their wedding really and truly DIY and one-of-a-kind! The food, the decor, the favours, the bunting, the cake… and the end result was absolutely stunning. Inspired by the many festivals they attended, they created a day like no other – 250 miles away and done almost entirely by email! Their best advice? Don’t hesitate to ask anyone and everyone for help with anything you need – you will save yourself hours of work, and the people you ask will be delighted! As a finishing touch, they asked Rebecca Douglas Photography to capture their day’s special spirit in her striking photos.
