A Pretty Shabby-Chic Wedding with a Mint-Green Cake!

You'll easily spot my favourite detail in this lovely pastel-themed wedding. It's the mint green wedding cake! I love everything about it - from the ruffled icing {very this season}, to the shabby chic lace bow, and the pretty mini-bunting topper. It's perfect! There's plenty more stealworthy wedding details - you'll want to copy Heather's bridal style, her Pronovias wedding dress, unstructured bouquet and DIY'd limoncello wedding favours. I'm also a big fan of their twine-wrapped jam jar vases. Fabulous pictures by Jack from Firsthand Photography. If you missed Part 1 of this wedding click here!

We celebrated our wedding at St Edmund's Church at Holme Pierrepont, with our reception next door at Holme Pierrepont Hall.

At the beginning, we didn't have a definitive theme, however it slowly developed with the help of online blogs. We explored lots of ideas, and created our own wedding scrapbook.

We ended up with a kind of rustic, traditional feel to the decorations. Pierrepont Hall is an amazing venue with beautiful gardens surrounding it, and we were really lucky that the weather held out.

Our wedding caterer was Fiona Herbert, who also managed the whole day. The team were vital to the smooth running of our wedding, and everything ran perfectly. All our guests commented on how good the food was at our reception.

Our wedding photographer was Jack at Firsthand Photography. She was fantastic - we hardly knew she was there, and have had so many people comment on how great she was since our big day. 

Funnily enough Jack lives just around the corner from us, so she popped round one evening for an introduction, and we instantly felt at ease.

Mrs Umbels was our wedding florist. They were absolutely fantastic - such a talent and very patient with us. Once we met Sarah in her little hut in the countryside, we knew she was the florist for us.

Our wedding favours were little kilner bottles of homemade limoncello and sloe gin. These doubled up as place names, as the bottles were labelled with little luggage tags.

We had a three-tiered cake with frosting in mint to match the hall and the bridesmaid dresses. It had ruffled icing and a lace bow, and we topped it with mini-bunting saying ' Just Married'. On the cake table we also had matching cake pops and cupcakes, all iced with mint and orange.

I loved planning my wedding! My advice to brides would be start early, breaking this down into a {big} list, and don't settle - you only get one big day!
