Colour & Homemade Details…
Happy Friday folks! Today I end the week on a high sharing with you the wedding of Michelle & Jason. This gorgeous couple got married at the Barns Hotel in Bedford and literally filled the venue with homemade details!
They decorated with colourful bunting, pom poms, balloons and brought along items from their home that meant a lot to them, including artwork to make it more personal.
Plus Michelle had the most amazing gold sparkly wedding shoes on.. think I need a pair myself! Thanks to Alexa Loy Photography for the photos- Ive enjoyed every moment looking through them… hope you all love them as much as me :))
Michelle & Jason…
We got married at the Barns Hotel in Bedford in their lovely ‘Tithe Barn’. I wanted the wedding to have a humble, down-to-earth feel and the barn felt really cosy and intimate. I really liked the contrast of the old dark wood with the bright, modern colours that we chose. The wedding was November last year (I had a cute brolly on hand for when it started to rain!)
I’m a collage illustrator, so I have a love of all things paper and I love cheerful colours and playful, fun typography! I definitely wanted the wedding to have a handmade feel…I made the bunting out of coloured card which hung across the barn ceiling, and I even made tiny paper bunting for my wedding cake!
I also made crepe paper flowers as the centrepieces for the tables and I spray painted glass milk bottles with colourful paints for the flowers to sit in. The balloons were filled with helium with help from family the night before the wedding and paper pom poms decorated the tables.
In decorating the barn, I included lots of different-sized framed artwork and pictures and cute little objects from mine and Jason’s home. I’m really happy I included details like this…it made it so personal :-)

I absolutely loved photographing Michelle and Jason’s wedding – Michelle is an illustrator and so I knew from the beginning she would totally transform the space in the barn – it looked incredible, so much work must have gone into the preparations, and they totally pulled it off!
But it wasn’t just their amazing attention to detail that I loved, it was the fact that amongst this, the love between them as a couple and the celebration of their marriage with their family and friends was the main focus all day long. So many moments to capture, such a very happy day!
