How wonderful is this week? I love sharing these amazing weddings with you!

Ebony wore a gown from Mr K. She handmade her veil, transforming a 1920’s Juliet cap into a traditional flapper veil. Ebony also made her bouquet- in amongst handmade satin roses, she placed portraits of her parents, Andrew’s parents and Ebony’s grandparents to honour the special people in their lives.

Claire, a graphic designer, created all off the stationery. She designed the invitations, seating plan, ceremony booklets and place cards. Claire used the theme of animal silhouettes to compliment the zoo location and act as table “numbers” Favors doubled as place cards and were a nod to Tim’s love of gardening- guests received seed packets of basil, green pea or sweet peas.

Claire and Tim opted for a relaxed reception- there was no formal entrance and the speeches were kept short and heartfelt- perfect for the party atmosphere they wanted to create.

Claire’s aunt made a cumquat cake for the bride and groom using a Maggie Beer recipe. The cake toppers were sewn from felt by Claire’s sister in law.

Thank you Claire and Tim for sharing your wedding day with us, have a wonderful life together! Thank you also to the crew at You Can’t Be Serious for letting us share the beautiful photos!

Claire and Tim

I’m so excited about today’s wedding! I’ve been wanting to share the work of You Can’t Be Serious with you for ages and I’ve had so many lovely emails from brides telling me how fabulous they are.

So today we have a delicious wedding from you hot off the presses – the wedding of Claire and Tim!

Claire and Tim’s wedding was filled with family and friends- from bouquets to cakes to being married by Tim’s friend.

Claire walked down the aisle to “God Only Knows” by The Beach Boys. The band was made up from students from the high school where Tim teaches.
