A Fun-Loving Wedding featuring a Tractor & Space Hoppers

You can't help but fall for this fun-loving couple. Tasha and Niall DIY'd their wedding from the ceremony up, and their personalities shine through every brilliant detail. I love their handmade marquee decorations - the bunting, ribbon chandeliers and burlap table runners, and their genius idea to ask all their friends to make cupcakes for their wedding cake. They hosted their reception in Tasha's parent's orchard, and filled it with lawn games, giant jenga, a child-out area, and even a calypso bar. Amazing! Enjoy these pictures by Michael from My Beautiful Bride - he's really captured the spirit of the occasion.

It was an easy choice to have the wedding reception in the garden of my family home where I grew up, as it's so beautiful there. 

We set up lots of different areas around the garden; we had a calypso bar with a rum punch bowl, an orchard with lots of games like giant jenga, a chill out area and a photobooth with costumes for silly pictures.

Our photographer, Michael from My Beautiful Bride was brilliant. His fantastic photos speak for themselves!

Our wedding flowers were DIY'd by my mother and my mother-in-law on the morning of the wedding. 

Together with friends and family we did lots of DIY decorations, which obviously saved money, but meant we had really unique and personal things. 

Instead of a wedding cake some of the family made over a hundred cupcakes and on the day everyone decorated one. The effect when they were all done was brilliant! 

For entertainment, a friend played the piano in the afternoon {we're lucky enough to have very talented friends!} and after dinner we had a 50's rockabilly band The Hound Dogs. These were absolutely fantastic, playing so many classics that appealed to all the generations.

We made bunting, ribbon decorations, signs, hung hearts and ribbons from all the trees and did our own flowers. Our marquee was provided by County Marquees.

After the speeches we gave everyone a pair of these amazing glasses that turn every light into a heart. With them on we watched fireworks with Michael Buble's 'Feeling Good' blasting out! Definitely a highlight! 

We are so lucky to have so many fabulous people in our lives that helped make the day amazing. We definitely couldn't have done it without them! 

Our caterer was Sarah Hollowell of Goodys Cake Company - she was brilliant - the food was delicious.
