What better way to kick off the blog than with our very own Mark’s wedding to my wonderful sister Hannah! Of course this day was very personal for us and really helped to kickstart the You Make My Dreams vision.
It's hard to know where to begin with this wedding. It was full of so many personal touches and was almost entirely handmade by our amazingly creative family. Both my sister and I are complete perfectionists, which was lucky as we had a very demanding client - yes, you Mark.
Over the course of eighteen months of planning, we pulled together an incredible day - exactly how Mark and Hannah wanted it. I would even go as far as saying it exceeded their wildest dreams and despite planning it all, even they were surprised with how well it came together back in October.
We spent hours and hours making table centrepieces, bunting, table names, chair back decorations - the list goes on. Of course, a big part of their day was their wedding stationery, which included save the dates, invitations, RSVPs, wishlists, orders of ceremony, to do lists, seating plans and much more.
The save the date was their guests' first glimpse of what to expect and although they didn’t want to give every detail away, it would have been rude not to give a little taster. With a love of skiing and their favourite resort Val Thorens, their wedding theme was clear and needed to be present throughout their stationery. Each and every piece was designed with this in mind, and even if I do say so myself, they looked brilliant.
Full of love, fun, personality and of course skiing, their stationery truly represented them. That's one happy couple - my job here is done!
