Kelton & Cole : Framed wedding decor details

I’m a fan of recycling. As well as it being good for the environment it can also look pretty darn awesome! Such as the use of door and window frames in weddings. It’s a trend that’s been appearing for a while now but when I saw Kelton & Cole’s wedding I had to share some shots, to show you just how creative you can get with frames.

They’ve used window frames hanging from rafters to display flowers on and hang candles from, and it looks amazing! An old door becomes a chalkboard for wedding details, escort cards are strung within a frame and even the table numbers are framed.

It’s fantastic how they have a consistent theme running through the wedding that has been explored in numerous ways. I’m a fan!

Handmade Weddings weekend at Bedruthan, Cornwall

When I get married I’m just going to see it as a huge excuse to hit up Hobbycraft and go craft crazy! Obviously it won’t be as important as marrying ‘the one’… but the chance to craft is a pretty close second ;)

For those brides-to-be that want to add handcrafted touches to their wedding, but perhaps need a little help, the ‘Handmade Weddings’ weekend, 17th-19th May, at the Bedruthan hotel in Cornwall could be what you need.

Handmade Wedding Weekends at Bedruthan Cornwall

Here’s more info on a weekend where you’ll get to make jewellery and bunting for your big day…

Guests can Bring along a memento – maybe their Grandma’s brooch, the family pearls, or a little lace from their mum’s wedding dress perhaps, and re-make them into a headdress, necklace, cuff or ring. Expert jewellery upcycler Sarah Drew will provide plenty of vintage lace, old brooches, earrings, silk flowers and crystals from her own collection too, so they can create a really eclectic handmade look.­­

Even complete beginners will finish the weekend with pieces they’ll be proud to wear on their walk down the aisle. And bridesmaids, mothers-of-the-bride and friends can also come along and make lovely jewellery to co-ordinate with their outfits.

Learn how to choose bunting fabrics so that they ‘read’ well when displayed, create different effects using shape and spacing and make beautiful, quality bunting that will last a lifetime. Fast stitchers can also learn how to make matching wedding cake and car bunting using left over scraps.­­
