I know, I know. Wedstival 2012 wound up almost 36 hours ago and we haven’t posted yet. Did it rain, did we have enough bunting? Were there really man-eating chickens?
We promised there would be photos. And there will be, we promise. At the moment we’re just sorting through the hundreds of fantastic shots to bring you the best of the best from that splendiferous day. And there will be tutorials, top tips and the trials and tribulations of handmade weddings to come. But right now we’re a little tired. So to keep you occupied while you wait, here are some shots of the Wedstival setup from the fantastic Nick Dennis, whose website you can see here
(In addition to helping us hang several miles of bunting, Nick joined the gang of self-proclaimed “burly men”* who erected the marquee and graciously allowed us to share his photos and link to his page despite the fact that we spent all of Friday calling him by the wrong name and quizzing him about his choice in footwear. Thanks Nick!)
The bride and groom’s glasses for the toast. I already loved these, but I loved them even more after we showed them to a pair of 7-year-old girls who were helping us set up. Their response: “But, will the bride and groom have jam with their toast?”. Awesome.
You’ll have to wait for more photos until we’ve selected the best ones (and carefully edited out any that show me in an unflattering light) but to answer the burning questions:
Did they like the decorations? In the bride’s words, they were “Amazing. Like, rock star awesome.” And obviously we wouldn’t dream of arguing with the bride on her special day.
Were there really man-eating chickens? Well, there were definitely chickens. And several guests were, in fact, missing from the morning-after clean up session. So I’ll let you draw your own conclusions.
Do Re-Creations do weddings? In light of the evidence, I would have to say yes. Yes, indeed we do!
*The self-proclaimed “burly men” did appear to be as advertised–a strapping bunch of guys!
