Anna & Tom

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again- there is magic to be had with a wedding at home. Perhaps it’s celebrating something so special in the place where you unwind on a Sunday, hang out the washing, plant your favourite blooms and open your curtains to see every day. It sometimes seems only right that a wedding takes place at the home you have built with your beloved. Anna and Tom’s wedding day was festive that’s for sure but also full of love and beautiful touches.

Photographs today- the bright and cheerful photographs, are by Insight Creative.

On having their wedding at home, Anna says ” We had only bought the house a few months earlier and couldn’t find anywhere that fit what we wanted, so it became the obvious choice. We also wanted the freedom to decorate everything and have complete creative control.”

Anna and Tom hired stylist Carbine Avenue to help pull their wedding day together. Anna recalls “With the help of our stylist, we handmade almost all of our decorations. We cut out hundreds of paper hearts and sewed them together for our ceremony backdrop, made all of our own tablecloths, and tore hundreds of strips of fabric which were sewn together to make about 130m of bunting.”

I wanted field flowers and colourful flowers that I let the florist decide on. I had mainly hand made decorations. My hens night was a “slave labour”night where my friends cut out paper hearts and my mother made food to keep them happy.”
