A Pretty in Pink Spring Wedding planned in Five Months

Burlap and lace, baby's breath and bunting, paper poms and fairy lights, just a few of my favourite wedding decorations in the world! The lovely Charlotte and Chris planned a pretty in pink wedding, and I love all their feminine details. Can you believe Charlotte organised it all in five months? Even the wedding favours are printed with a personal message. Other wedding ideas to steal include the giant wooden heart wedding guest book, and the beribboned jam jar vases - a super easy DIY you can re-create at home. Thank you to Alexa Poppe Wedding Photography for her lovely pictures. Make sure you check out her blog for more wedding inspiration.

We got married on 21st Feb 2015 at The Green in Upton Cross, near Liskeard in Cornwall.

We loved the shabby chic feel of the barn venue, and the pretty scenery. We wanted a vintage theme - the pink came later!

Our wedding favours were all edible. Personalised chocolate bars, Cornish fudge, pink 'Just Married' rock, and pink, foil-covered love hearts.

Our florist was Escential Blooms who came recommended. I wasn't disappointed, everything they did was perfection. They captured my ideas in just one of two emails. 

We had lots of baby's breath in jam jars, burlap table runners and vintage-style pink tea-light holders. Everyone was very impressed with all the decorations supplied by Escential Blooms.

Our wedding food was created by Haycart Catering, who also have a restaurant called Hayloft in Menheniot, in Cornwall. The food was first class quality. Great selection. Excellent staff. Everyone complimented us on the food.

I really enjoyed planning our wedding, although I only had 5 months to do it!

My advice to other brides? Trust your instincts and do not doubt yourself. Don't try to please everyone, as your guests will all have a good time no matter what. Be prepared, but don't panic if things change on the day, just go with the flow. The day goes so fast, so savour every moment.

We chose a two-tier wedding cake, decorated with pink flowers, because I'm not a fan of cake toppers. The cake was also decorated with pearls in keeping with our feminine, vintage theme.

Our wedding photographer was Alexa Poppe, who was a recommendation. Again, she was the perfect choice!
