A few days late but here is part two of the welsh wedding wonderfulness. Lots of cute details

The bride made all the favours bright and colourful with individually stitched names and driftwood boats to go with the seaside west wales location! She also made all the table cloths which were brightly coloured and directed guests to which table they were on!

The bunting was so cute (and of course the bride made it)

The easel table plan had a small strip of the table cloth fabric. So once you found out what table you were on, all you had to do was look across the marquee for the table cloth style!
On all the tables to go with her button bouquets she had bright coloured balls of felt with chunky white buttons

The multi coloured cupcakes had cute polka dot wrappers and flags

Proud father of the bride had everyone in stitches

Then a few of the guests did a surprise sing along for Mel and Charlie, Youve got a friend. The most memorable and personal wedding entertainment, but it does help having musical welsh choir friends

Emotional moments

Then the band (again friends of the bride and groom got everyone dancing)

Wolf whistles but one of the gorgeous bridesmaids

The Welsh wedding PART ONE

Mel & Charlie's wedding is nothing short of Wedding DIY wonderfulness. LOTS of gorgeous details, made even better by the fact the bride made them all herself! She isn't really a WEDDING magazine devotee and tends to avoid the the net, so whilst she was inspired by felt bouquets (I blogged hers yesterday) someone showed her she then created the whole bright colour bursting wedding from herself.

Mel is an art teacher so I guess it comes naturally and to be honest the whole wedding reflected them both so well. Their home is full of colour and craft too!

Mel asked all the ladies to wear gloves. The vintage outfits were amazing, not surprising as one of the brides oldest friends is Laura founder of vintage and bridal store Fur Coat, No Knickers!!!

I dont want to sit there mum!

Two of her closet friends wowed guests in the church

The light in the church was amazing - I couldnt pick between colour or black & white

The sunlight was just stunning across the bay

Another of Mels amazing felt bouquets for her youngest bridesmaid Ffion, her stunning step daughter

Congratulations to the Wood family... more to come
