  4. oh! I didn't see Nao's outfit in the shorter post- that's great! It's hard to find a groom a dashing get-up with shorts! He pulls it off perfectly!

  10. How gorgeous! I actually thought of you over the weekend when the weather was looking a bit shody and hoped it was a bit sunnier of the Isle of Wight - I'm so glad the sun shone. And an Apple Orchard ... perfect!

  24. Such a beautiful wedding, I'm proud of you girl, in not getting caught up in all that ridiculous wedding planner hype, and doing it yourself with help.

    It will always mean so much to you. It's all of you both in your wedding and not other peoples ideas.

    Done with Love.

    I can't even say it looks simple and elegant because with your descriptions anyone can see how much work Nao and yourself put into every detail. Not so simple but the outcome was wonderful. I can say simply gorgeous though! Loved the people lying on the rugs drinking wine and the baskets of things to do for the kids and all that open space. God, my wedding was so stiff and formal. Sigh, to be able to have a wedding like yours would be wonderful. A huge congratulations and thank you very much for sharing the photos. You looked beautiful and happy!

    Thank you so very much for sharing this special day with us here in the blogosphere.

    This inquiry may strike you as strange- but, in the name of thrift, I feel it can't hurt to ask! Would Nao be willing to sell his wonderful jacket? My fiance has been hunting for one similar and our resources are so limited. It really is lovely!

    If he would condsider it you can contact me at

  38. Thank you for sharing this incredible and fairy-tale occasion with us all!

    My fiance and I are also inspired by objects and locations "with a story", or vintage. We're having trouble finding wedding bands that fit that motif.

    What's the story behind your matching bands? They're perfect!

  39. I stumbled across your blog a few months ago and always look forward to seeing what creative things you are up to. Congratulations on your wedding, you looked beautiful in your dress.

    Wow. I have no idea how many people will get in touch after seeing your beautiful wedding shown in the article in youandyourwedding mag. Well done you. A wonderful, beautiful, spectacular, demonstration of your love for one another and remarkable skills. I really hope you won't mind sharing a little bit of the magic from your day with another bride to be ... I have fallen deeply in love with the "Program of Events" the manilla card/paper, the font the print etc. Could you please please share the details of either the printers you used or how you managed to do it yourself. I am sat on the floor surrounded in parcel tags, stick on paper flowers and other bits and pieces but need to find a way to build all these bits together with a print out of the information just as you have with your program. We're getting wed in an old thatched barn in Devon in August and I'd love to set the scene with the bunting on my invites ...

    Thanks so much in advance if you can help at all.

    My email is: spannarothwell@yahoo.co.uk

    If you could send any info I'd be so so grateful.
