Emma and Eliza’s May wedding was inspired by nature and their love of their doggies! Married at Deepdale Farm in York, it was the perfect setting for their laid-back meets festival meets DIY celebration.
Their humanist ceremony even included a letter from their dog Max who couldn’t be there with them. The whole ceremony was created around the couple’s favorite things – drinking, animals, travelling and each other. It got all the guests involved and it was so much fun. It fitted the gals perfectly. The family dog, Tigger, was the ring bearer and he was so well behaved and cute, wearing a little tux.
In terms of decor, the whole wedding was DIY. They dressed the entire venue themselves. Emma made her own bouquet and she and her bridesmaids made all the flower and greenery arrangements. The girls spent most of the weekends at the parents’ with a drill, building all their games, the heart donut walls and the ceremony frame. One bride made all the planters out of cement and they even made the table place card holders, stealing a branch from a silver birch. The wedding tablescapes were done with uncovered tables, with eucalyptus table runners, there were some paper lanterns, disco balls and doilie garlands over the reception.
One bride was wearing a strapless lace mermaid wedding dress with a train, the second chose a lace sleeveless gown with an illusion neckline and a train plus a cutout back. The bridesmaids were wearing mismatching blush gowns of different looks and lengths.
