A look inside our wedding: Wedfest 2014!

Whilst we’re away enjoying our honeymoon we can’t help but occasionally find ourselves looking back over our wedding photos. Like everyone who’s got married will tell you, there is so much build up for a day that ends up flying by at 100mph and then it’s over. Luckily photos give us a chance to re-live the day and remember some of the many many highlights that we might else forget over time.

To give you a bit of an insight into our wedding day, it was quite a small afair. We chose to invest our own time (and much of our family and friends) into the wedding rather than just throwing money at anyone who would take it. As you all know, our priority is always to save the pennies for our next adventure and it wasn’t going to be any different for our special day.

The day began with a fry up and a beer (for me anyway) and a very simple registry office wedding infront of 25 of our nearest and dearest. The main party began a couple of hours later with what we liked to call Wedfest from 3pm until 2am. We arranged all our own playlists, had no seating plan and even fish and chips served from a proper chippy van as our main meal, basically an all day drinking session with 90 awesome people.

The wedding day was everything we wanted it to be. So many friends in the same room together, lots of beer flowing everywhere and plenty of crazy dancing.

What a nice, different and unique way to get married and celebrate. I love it! Everything was so “not traditional” (like the cake for instance) which is what I like the most about it.. it looks like you had loads of fun and a great day 🙂

Thanks Franca, we had such a fun day. Unfortunately I can’t remember what the cake tasted like though or if I even had any?

Can’t believe you guys had a chippy van – that is the most awesome thing I’ve ever seen. Why do I never get invited to weddings where they serve fish and chips?! *stomps feet angrily*

Haha I’m glad you liked the idea. It seemed to go down very well with the guests as well and as you can see from the pictures I really enjoyed it!
