My Wedding Day

Today my husband and I celebrate 4 years of marriage. I decided to share some of my favourite memories and details from the day. I wasn't an obsessive, bridezilla wedding planner and at the end of the day I just wanted to have a fun day with my friends, family and of course my husband. We liked the idea of adding our own touches and details that reflected us as a couple on the day.

Here are a few things we did to make the day individual to us.....
Casino chip chocs as favours for the guys, presented in a shot glass - a reminder of the stag do in Las Vegas!
We also had these badges made for all our guests, designed by my husband which matched all the stationary.
We got engaged in Tuscany Italy so for the ladies we chose these Italian Baci chocolates as favours, they were a bit extra special as they had a little love note in each! These were presented in these star tea light holders..
Each table had a pretty bird cage centre piece. We had navy napkins to match the colour scheme and chair ribbons and navy striped ribbon around them. One of my favourite ideas was incorporating my family name Lemon by having a Lemon tree table plan designed by my husband and  real lemons with name tags pinned into them for place names.

My husband had a suit taylor made, he looked so smart! I really loved the inside pocket detail of our names and the wedding date and of course this suit is something he will keep forever.
The venue was perfect for us, it was a large pub in Greenwich, London and we had the first floor hired for the ceremony, meal, drinks and dancing in the evening. It was such a great space and didn't feel too formal, the perfect place for a party! We loved going to visit it for various planning before the wedding and still do! 
The Trafalgar Tavern had great floor to ceiling windows and views across the Thames to the millenium dome. 

I chose a 50's style dress and a vintage scarf clip to tie my hair on one side.
The day was perfect and everything I could of imagined it would be. I remember looking across at all the guests on the dance floor partying the night away and doing tie limbo and feeling so happy to be there with my husband and all the people I loved the most. 
There are so many ideas and creative ways to make your wedding day individual. I wish I had Pinterest and wedding blogs 4 years ago when I was putting together my ideas! I would love to hear about your special day and any great ideas that added a personal touch for you. 

Love Lemon x
