Fun Wedding DIY Ideas…
Today the lovely Alice from wedding prop and styling company Fleur De Lace, shares with us a fun and easy wedding decor DIY… Paper Leaf Garlands. Over to Alice to tell us more…
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.
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.

Flower Moon Party…
A few weeks back the lovely Sharon Cooper Photography attended Elmore Court’s Flower Moon Party; an evening to celebrate their recent renovations which include 8 new beautifully decorated bedrooms, plus a stylish bridal pad in the Coach House.
Elmore has been in the Guise family for over 750 years and it’s Anselm Guise, the current heir who transformed the estate from a private family home that needed work, into the stylish bohemian wedding venue it is today. With his background of co-founding the Glade Festival and his wife Sarah being a co-founder of The Secret Garden Party, they have found the perfect alignment of being a great party pad but with all the luxury needs you would want for your big day.
I personally LOVE visiting Elmore; the incredible house, picture perfect grounds and the amazing team are everything you want from a cool wedding venue… a real home from home. When the invitation to attend the Flower Moon Party hit our desks we knew it was going to be a fun night! With a dress code of florals in honour of the May full moon (known as the Flower Moon,) guests were in …
Gorgeous, fun filled, city wedding…
Today we have this gorgeous wedding to share with you; the quirky wedding of Holly and Louise which took place at The Hide in Sheffield.
This super fun city wedding was a real family affair and was filled with laughter, street food, doughnuts and dancing…
Holly & Louise…
Tell us how you met and got engaged…
We met at school when we were 11! After school we lost touch and reconnected a few years ago via facebook after discovering we had both developed a love of snowboarding. We went out a few times as friends then one night, we went out and something just felt different. I don’t know what was in the drinks but we both say it was as if someone had just flicked a switch! Within weeks Louise was spending all her time with me and the kids and moved in ‘officially’ a year later.
What were your main hopes for the day…
The weather was a huge bonus! Getting married between Christmas and New Year we expected rain… or snow but we had one of those beautiful sunny winter’s days. It was absolutely freezing though but we got some fantastic pictures!!
Was your favourite part of the day…
Everything! We loved having our couples shots before the ceremony so we could spend …

Delicious Summer Ice Cream Recipe…
Today the lovely Natasha from Nevie Pie Cakes shares with us this fab ice cream recipe… Toasted Oatmeal Ice Cream.
In this weather its the perfect summer treat… Im so hungry even looking at these photos!!
This is a recipe I used to make as a teenager, it is from an old Marks and Spencer cookbook that I still treasure.
It sounds unusual, but it is delicious, and you can fool yourself into believing that it is healthy, as it contains oats! The oats and sugar turn into praline, and give the ice cream a gorgeous nutty, toffee taste. You must really watch the oat/sugar mixture while it is under the grill, as it burns very easily!
I had intended to make use of my ice cream maker, but it had lain idle for so long in the back of a cupboard that the liquid in the freezer bowl had started to leak. So I used the old fashioned ‘taking it out of the freezer regularly and beating it’ method. You only need to do this three or four times, but just make sure that the ice cream is semi-frozen when you do, or it won’t be effective.
Try adding the ice cream to some chocolate cookies – they make the perfect ice cream sandwich!
Thanks Natasha! Who cares …
