Working with Anne and Seb was great fun, they are a lovely couple but some might say very different interests so when putting the look of their wedding together we wanted to make sure both of them were represented.
I started off by putting a couple of mood boards together and some design ideas; here is the mood board based around Anne’s love of irises and books.
A family friend Jane, put together the flowers for the church but was unable to do the personal flowers so I stepped in to make the bouquets and buttonholes. We all had a fun morning together at Covent Garden market where Anne got to choose her favourite flowers for the bouquets.
When it came to the reception details we knew we wanted to include Anne’s love of books but it was just as important for Seb to have something he loved especially as his family were not able to make it over from Argentina. As Seb is a big football fan we decided to name all the tables after famous Argentinean football players. The cake was made by one of Anne’s auntie’s but Seb made his mark by customising a cute little cake topper with a photo of his favourite team on the TV and supplying football shirts for the table!
There were a large number of children at the wedding too so as well as personalised goody bags at their seats I also set up a kiddy table with lots of fun activities from colouring books and balloon driven plastic cars-a big hit! I also made a finger print guest book tree for the kids to stamp their mark on.
So a final Happy Anniversary to Anne & Seb as they celebrate one year of married life today!! x
