THE WEDDING OF THIS COUPLE THAT MET IN A BAKERY IS LIKE SOMETHING STRAIGHT OUT OF A ROMANCE NOVEL
One of my favourite things about the weddings we share here, is learning all about how the couple first met. Today’s love story sounds like something from a romance novel. Sarah was working at a bakery, whilst Alasdair was homeless and looking for work. Sarah hired him on the spot and so their brilliant love story began. Here is Sarah to tell you more about the gorgeous wedding day…
“We wanted our wedding day to be uncomplicated, relaxed and to reflect us, and with a little help from our friends it was perfect” Began Sarah.
“The food, the cake, the flowers, the lighting, the branding, the photographers, film makers and even the officiate are all friends of ours. It was all beautifully easy and completely special because of that. Even the amazing building for our first look photos was through a friend. That first look was magical. So emotional and I’ll never forget the way he looked at me in those precious moments.”
“We had a tiny budget. We found an art gallery in-between shows that was a blank canvas for us to decorate ourselves. We knew we could make the venue really pretty just by adding a few floral arrangements for impact against the white walls and concrete floor. And although logistically awkward, the wild hanging fern swing looked stunning- as did the hand tied bouquets- full of eucalyptus, asparagus fern, sweet Juliet roses, thistles and succulents” Sarah described.
“We asked our guests to bring their own bottle of wine (or 3), we browsed flea markets for rugs and decor, we picked hydrangeas from neighbors and friends gardens to dry out and hang off festoons. We had bread from the bakery I work at and packed wooden boxes with cheese, cold meats and salads for a non fussy, delicious sit down picnic. Whilst the evening ended with a whisky” She added.
“Too many weddings are restricted by the venue and what you can and cannot do. We wanted our guests to feel as big a part of the day as they all were and feel like they could be involved or just enjoy the surroundings.”
