Here is the divine vintage themed wedding of Shelley and Simon captured by Masterpieces Photography + Video. The couple exchanged vows at the historic Spring Bluff Railway Station, which has really come to life after the destruction of flooding rains last year. Now it is really green, and depending on the season brimming with colourful flora
Shelley's wedding gown and the bridesmaids were made by her mother, and fitted the theme beautifully. Inspiration coming for her grandmother's Home Journal magazines.
It was very exciting to have our display at the Ideal Bride last week, and this week we have had a photo shoot with Masterpieces Photography + Video to show how our beautiful handcrafted products can work at your wedding. I'm looking forward to putting up the images, so keep in touch.
A simple and effective bonboniere are jars of lollies. Recently I have seen many weddings that have a lolly bar, and guest are provided with small jars to fill and take home. Such a great way to get guest talking and interacting.
Here are jars bought from a local budget shop filled with lollies and a simple ribbon to bring the colours together.
These jars I found at an op shop, and I think they could work really well as all different shapes and sizes. These are old spice bottles that I have washed and sterilised. I painted the lids, added white tulle around the bottles and a classic black ribbon to finish them off.
Looking at creating unique decorations for your wedding? Here's an easy one you can create in your own colour theme. You can add extra details, such as embellishments like diamantes, ribbon and pearls.
I love the natural tones of browns so here's my example. You will need the following:
2 MDF Boards
The letters for what you want to spell out
Scrap booking paper
In total I spent about $20 at Spotlight.
Firstly paint your MDF boards in the colour or colours you would like
Paint the letters you are using.
Adhere the scrap booking paper to the MDF board
Now glue the letters onto the boards to complete the look.
