Craig and Sarah

I have been planning my wedding since I was old enough to pin a net curtain to my head and walk down my parents stairs to my waiting (and unwilling) groom… our Labrador, wearing one of my Dad’s ties. Themes, colours and the groom have changed many times over the years. One thing has not. I can’t wait to be a bride and a wife.

As much as I have dreamed about my engagement ring and wedding day, I never gave any thought to an engagement party. I didn’t see the point in it.

Two furry babies later, newly engaged to the love of my life, with the ring I had never even dared to dream of  on my finger; I finally understood. And so our engagement party was born! As a self confessed control freak we/I picked out my stunning yellow canary diamond engagement ring and this unexpected pop of colour became our theme.

Mason jars, bunting, candles and fairy lights all added to the feel of our backyard rustic diy engagement party. Shades of yellow echoed my stunning canary diamond engagement ring. Everything was DIY from the canapés to the paper doily bunting and even our delicious cake! It was a lemon curd frosted dream, again in beautiful shades of yellow inside and out.

As both our families are based in the UK it was our wonderful network of friends who rallied together to make the evening so special and memorable. Help extended from friends arriving early and pouring champagne to our gorgeous friend Margaret donating all the beautiful flowers from her garden. A special mention has to go out to our kitten George who as always stole the show with his cuteness!
