Tia created a gorgeous vintage themed wedding to show off both their personalities, you can tell from all the hard work they put in how much they kept family at the heart of it all with special touches and all the little items were so thought out, Tia certainly has an eye for detail.
I hope you enjoy reading her story as much as I did.
Tia and Matthew got married in May 2017.
We married in a Catholic Church in the town where I grew up near Mansfield, Nottinghamshire. Our reception was held at Redbrick House, a 19th century farmhouse in Edwinstowe not far from Sherwood Forest. Though we live in Sheffield now, I knew I wanted to marry in the church that I grew up in, it was very important to me that we did that.
The manager was extremely lovely and helped me with anything I wanted, kindly putting up with my many emails and phone calls, slightly over-organised instructions!
How did you come up with the style and colour theme that you created for your venue?
We wanted our wedding day to be traditional but fun and have lots of personalised items. We wanted it to be a huge celebration for our family and friends.
I'm very into my sparkle and vintage so we went with a vintage floral theme with touches of sparkle.
Everything fitted in with the colour scheme of pink, cream and gold.
We had table names for each year that we had been together, as we got married near our 8th year anniversary, they were placed in vintage photo frames.
The floral material for the hearts was also used to make Mr and Mrs bunting by my mum and pillows to scatter around the venue. It was also used to make tissue covers for both our mums and Matt's nan, that we had personalized with a ribbon that had our wedding date on.
We had an area that had wedding photos of our parents and grandparents so that they all had a special part of the day.
It was a massive success, got everyone dancing and everyone thought they were brilliant.
I enjoyed all the crafting elements, putting the ribbons on the little jars, making my own confetti and sweet jar signs.
I had lots of people around me who were all good at crafting so they all offered to help and it was great spending time with them doing crafts.
- To enjoy every moment as it goes so fast
- Don't worry if anything doesn't go as planned, it doesn't matter that much in the grand scheme of things.
-Go with your gut instinct, if you change your mind about anything, just do it, don't let anyone talk you otherwise.
And I wish them all the very best in the future as Mr & Mrs!
