A Gorgeous DIY Garden Wedding by Sadie & Co

Ooooh there are some gorgeous details in today’s wedding. The beautiful diy stationery made by the bride (um… clever!), that Rue de Siene dress with the added stunning back necklace, the Bridesmaids in black jumpsuits (I freaken LOVE this!), the stunning floral crowns by Roses Florist, the Grooms quirky pocket square, the ‘how did they do that?’ cake by Florabunda Cakes and the diy animal table decorations (very cool!) just to name a few!

All beautifully captured by the talented Tania Eves from Sadie & Co (who also owns the fancy pants Photokombi which is a must for any wedding in the north!) Enjoy xox

How did you meet?

We both grew up in Coatesville and our families got to know each other through the local play centre. Scotts younger brother is the same age as I am and we’ve been mates since play centre days, Then Scott and i got together when I was 19 and Scott was 24.

Tell us the one quality you love most about each other?

Tori I love how loyal Scott is, I know I can always rely on him.

In three words describe your wedding style…

Botanical, Sparkling, Fun

What were your save and splurge items for your wedding?

We definitely saved on venue costs, being locals we got the use of a beautiful local garden and a great rate for the Coatesville hall. Out of fear of running out we splurged on drinks a little (including some nice stuff for the wedding party!)

Did you DIY? 

Oh hell yes!! We had a great time making so many things for our wedding my pinterest board was overflowing!! The biggest DIY would have been the invitations which I had a huge amount of help from my Mum with she makes her own cards so she had all the bits and pieces to make them look great.

I also spent a lot of hours painting a lot of plastic animals black and gold for the centre pieces, think there was around 120 in the end along with some large ones for table decorations. Everyone loved them only about 15 came home!

We also made signs for the ceremony and reception. Along with our team of helpers we decorated the Hall with olive wreaths and the tables with ivy, seed lights, and the animals it all came together so well.

Do you have any tips or tricks for engaged couples?

    This is gorgeous and so beautifully put together. Where was the groom’s suit from? It’s exactly the colour my fiance is looking for.
