The Colourful, Eco-Friendly, Woodland Wedding of Beth + Zac…

Festival, Woodland Wedding Vibes…

You’re going to love todays colourful, woodland wedding!

It’s so heartwarming to see a wedding that was pulled together with so much help from a couples friends and family, and Beth + Zac’s wedding is a perfect example. From hand made signs and pom poms to BBQ food and lawn games…this fun, eco-friendly woodland wedding was a real family affair at Mulberry Lodge !

We went to school together! We’d always known about each other, but didn’t really meet until sixth form when I transferred in to Zac’s Religious Studies class. We’ve been together since we were 17; high school romances work! We got engaged at about 2 o’clock in the morning last Christmas!

How would you describe your wedding theme?

Fun, festival like, colourful, DIY, ECO!

Our main aim was to organise a really easy going day, where everybody could just have fun, but still make it feel like a wedding. I’ve only actually been to one wedding before, so I wasn’t really sure what we were aiming for! But fun was the most important thing; it could rain, and the marquee could collapse, and everything could go horribly wrong – as long as people were having fun, nothing else would really matter.

I’m delighted to share with you this DIY on how to create an alternative foliage look. Deck the walls, create a backdrop or table runner. If you don’t have the machine to get your sew on, use hot glue instead!

What you need…

Sewing Machine and thread, paper, pencil, scissors and string.

Instructions:

1. Layer the paper and make a stencil so that you can draw around your leaf shape and cut out a few layers at a time.

2. Fold the leaves so you have a 3D effect. You can fold them in wads to save time. I pinched up to ¾ of the way up the leaf.

3. Set the sewing machine to a wide zigzag.

4. Sew in a straight line with your zigzag stitch up the string, adding the leaves at regular intervals.

5. You could sew to any length you want. I used around 30 leaves for each meter of garland.

The stitched string makes an awesome raw look. Hope you have fun, and you could use any shape and any colour.

Happy Creating
