The Little Details

I have to admit that I probably spent far more time, effort and worry on the smaller details than was necessary. Most of this brain power was used to think of what to do and what would work. There is lots of inspiration on the wedding blogs and sometimes it’s easy to think that you need to have all these extras to make it special. In reality though, what looks good at an outdoor, barnyard, sunny California wedding might not look good indoors in a hotel in rainy Northern Ireland. You want to personalise your wedding but not make it look weird. Will all those black card moustache holding brides look back in 20 years and think “What were we doing?”.

In the end we didn’t have a harpist, nor a string quartet, nor surprise opera singing waiters, nor caricaturists. I gathered up things I had at home – a birdcage, a gold crown, teacups and we put flowers in them, plain and simple. And it looked just like a wanted.
