The Colour filled Barn Wedding of Michelle & Jason…

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 :))

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.

We’d been engaged for 4 years without making any firm plans. Different ups and downs in those years prompted us to decide we didn’t want to wait any longer. Much to people’s surprise we planned our wedding in only two months. We knew what we didn’t want and what was most important to us.

Nailing our priorities in the first few weeks really helped. We didn’t want to force our guests to sing hymns they didn’t know the words to, or to sit through readings from the bible they didn’t understand. We wanted our
