Sarah in Wonderlust gets hitched!

Sooo as your probably aware, last month I got married! It was a really rushed wedding due to my dads illness (he has vascular dementia) and we wanted to make sure he could be there with us on our big day and that he would be in our photos to remember always.

These are just a handful of photos from the day but give you an idea of what we did!

I knew I wanted a really colourful wedding so I asked my guests to dress as colourfuly (if thats a word!) as poss. I hate it when people wear black at wedding unless this is part of the theme. Unless gothic glam is your theme then I kinda don't get it, weddings should be bright and colourful! :)

I went for a rainbow wedding theme which sort of also evolved in to a midsummer nights dream! The decorating guys who did the lanterns on the ceiling described it as a midsummer nights dream on acid!

I am very lucky to have some wonderful colleagues who helped me design invites, lent me a tipi, did my henna & helped me put the hall together that I had booked for a reception after the wedding which looked exactly how I had imagined!

The weather to start the day was really misty but set the scene really well and made it look magical! It brightened up later to be a gorgeous autumn day!.

For the dress I knew I didn't want anything too princessy as wanted something I could run about n dance in without feelin to pressured to just sit n look perfect all day.

Luckliy, boho goddesses Free People had just launched a wedding collection full of beautiful yet easy to wear dresses. I love this dress as it has shorts on underneath and has gorgeous indian style beading which went perfectly with my henna!

I also didn't want a traditional veil as feel they can be crazy expensive and didn't feel like they were very me, I drew up some inspiration from The Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty expo I attended in the summer and went for some amazing antlers instead. I found Kelly Eden who makes these incredible antler headbands on instagram and got these sent over from LA. <3

I had a backup floral & gold coin crown as well for the evening as the antlers were to heavy for dancing & wore my Shoava shawl throughout the day & then my Not your baby leather dinosaur jacket for the evening.
