Life Update: Our Wedding

I kept most of our wedding details off the blog for personal reasons but I just wanted to mention that the big day has come and gone. We were married in Poole at The Guildhall followed by a reception at Hotel du Vin. We kept things small and intimate with under 30 guests as we didn't want the bells and whistles associated with large lavish weddings.

By keeping things simple it was relatively stress free so I was able to enjoy the planning process. I was concerned I wouldn't find someone to make me a vegan (dairy & egg free) and gluten free cake but I ended up getting quotes from a number of people. In the end we chose Sugar Mouse Bakery. The top tier was chocolate with fresh raspberries in the "buttercream" and the bottom tier almond with fresh cherries (aka Bakewell tart flavour!). I found the cake topper via Etsy, a perfect choice because Mr Sugarpuffish is a Dr Who fan.

I adore Gerberas so I kept my flowers simple and colourful, our florist was Va Va Bloom. I had my bouquet, family had matching buttonholes and for our tables we bought mini milk bottle crates and put gerbaras in them. I asked Sam of Sugarloaf Soaps to make the favours, we had heart shaped soaps stamped with our initials and wedding date. My sister did my hair and makeup using the products I had shared with you over the past months. You can view the final selection in my recent post (click here). My dress was bought from a local store who specialise in plus sizes. For those interested it was Callista London in Vanilla. My hairband came from Ebay, I also had a personalised clutch bag from Mabelicious Clutch and my shoes I bought online from Elegant Steps (Amelia by Paradox Pink in blue). We bought the Groom's suit at Next and his waistcoat and cravat from DQTWe hired Leslie of BH13 as our wedding photographer. He was great to work with and put everyone at ease. 

I am going to blog separately about our Honeymoon as we just came back from a week in Venice, Italy.
