Happy New Year!

Hey there! Happy New Year!

Well, I have been quiet recently here on the blog :) But some of you will probably know why!

On 31.12.2011 I got married! Yay!

For the past few months I have been completely distracted, I have not been making much for my shop, I have been reading a lot of my favourite forums (Craft Pimp, Crafteroo & Beadbuddies to name but a few) but I have not been contributing as much as I normally do. I have been concentrating on dresses, shoes, table decorations, hair & makeup, wedding favours, bridesmaids, venue, registrar, wedding cake, kiddies goodie bags, photographers, bridal underwear, stationary, chair covers, and on and on ... rather than crafts and/or beads! hehe! It's honestly been exhausting, but down to the final detail, everything was perfect - So I'm gonna give a shoutout to who we used for these final details.

The Venue - DeVere Mottram Hall - Click here to read my trip advisor review.

The Dress - Maggie Sottero "Alexandria" - Bought from Maria Modes - Macclesfield.

The Suits - I'm still shocked that he chose a tailcoat! - Hired from Slaters - Manchester

The Band - GrooveThing - North West

The Bridesmaids Dresses - Dessy - Bought from Maria Modes  - Macclesfield.

The flower girl dress - Organza beaded dress - John Lewis

Photographers - Gallery Studios - Warrington

The wedding cake - Marks & Spencers (it was AMAZING!)

The flowers - Kate at The Mustard Seed florist - Macclesfield

The chair covers - Gemma at Cheshire Covers - Knutsford

Hair & MakeUp - Ruth at Orchid Blush - Across the North West

Wedding favours - Sweets & Chocolates from UK wedding favours / boxes and ribbons from ebay

Table decorations - Crystal lanterns from Range UK / table runners, bubbles, snowflake confetti and table diamonds from ebay / mirror plates from wilkinsons / Tealights and Glimma Holders from Ikea

Guest Book - Thumbprint guest book from - Not on the High Street

The day itself was amazing, memories keep on floating in and out of my head - and I keep on asking Joe lots of questions too about his memories, things that I may have missed! Things still coming to me, and now it was a week ago already ... it still feels like yesterday :)

There will be a million more pictures to come, I don't want to bore you with too many, so here are a few favourites from my facebook tags this last week.
