DIY Tutorial: Photo Display in Embroidery Hoops

I haven’t shared a DIY with you for quite a while now, so when I was sent this gorgeous and pretty simple Photo Display idea I knew it would be the perfect DIY tutorial to share with you. I am seeing more and more photo display walls at weddings, so this wooden embroidery hoop idea is the perfect way to incorporate this fab trend into your wedding day. You can decorate it with flowers or with anything that goes along with your wedding theme. You could paint them to match your colour scheme or leave them minimal, it’s totally up to you.

DIY Tutorial: Photo Display in Embroidery Hoops

Liya Bulanov from APK Bridal is here to tell us how to make these super cute photo hoops. 

As the age of ‘do-it-yourself’ all of us crafty people rejoice. Not only does this popular trend save us money, but it also gives us the ability to express ourselves creatively and work with our hands.

Something fun that always brings a personal element to any wedding decor is a wall or area for a photo display. The variety of how photo walls are made is vast, so the direction you can take for hanging photos on your wedding are endless.

One fun idea is using embroidery hoops of different sizes to hang on a wall at your wedding. It is a sweet and creative way to highlight your picture so that when guests wander through they can stop and admire all the special moments you wish to remember forever.

Displaying pictures in hoops is an easy project that isn’t super tedious and time consuming. It can be done in one evening. The end result is super cute and you can really add your own spin to it.

The materials you will need are:

  • Wooden embroidery hoops 6’ 9’ 12’
  • White ribbon
  • Scissors
  • Poloroid photos
  • String (to hang it at the end)
  • Tie wire (to hold florals)
  • Florals
  • Hot glue gun
  • Glue Dots (to hold the photos)

Anna and Richie’s Flower Filled Spring Barn Wedding in Cumbria by Peter Hugo Photography

Happy Friday everyone, how are you all? I hope you have had a good week so far? I am very happy it’s the weekend. I finish work at lunch time today and then I am going to get my make up done as I am going out this evening. We are going to see Rhod Gilbert with some friends, I have a new outfit, new make up (by the time she has finished with me) Dexter is at his Nanna’s house, so we are ready to hit the town. Saturday is a chilled one and then Sunday we are taking Dexter to see Marvel Universe, I’m not sure who is more excited, him, me or Nik! We are finishing off the week with this lovely wedding from Peter Hugo Photography. Anna and Richie got married in Cumbria this spring in a beautiful ceremony held at Eden Wedding Barn. They filled the ceremony and reception area with lots of gorgeous flowers, fairy lights and pretty rustic touches. Such a lovely day.

 For a couple who have many adventures together… this was our best. A day full of love, family and hilarious dance moves.

Anna and Richie were married on13th April 2019 at Eden Wedding Barn, Kirby Stephen in Cumbria. ‘The second we got to Eden Barn we knew it was something special. It’s really tucked away and felt very private, at the end of a little country lane past farms and farmyard machinery! You would never know it was there which felt really private. We had 80 guests then 110 on the evening. It only took one year to plan. I bought my dress one year to the day before the wedding.’

Bridal Style: A Guide to Wedding Guest Jewellery by Joshua James 

This afternoon we are talking jewellery! Not engagement rings or wedding rings, this afternoon our post is dedicated to the dear wedding guest. Choosing what to wear to a wedding can be tough, there aren’t that many events that you get really dressed up for, but a wedding is somewhere where you can really go to town on your outfit. The jewellery you choose has the ability to dress up or dress down an outfit, so you need to choose wisely. To help you along I have enlisted the professional help of Joshua James who are here to help you with some jewellery inspiration.

I’ll pass you over to Joshua James for some ideas

Deciding what to wear to a wedding as a guest is already a daunting task. Picking the right accessories is another story entirely, however, working around your accessories can minimize your dressing time in half!
If you’re unsure about what colours to wear be mindful of the tones you’re wearing. Silver metals tend to go with cooler tones and gold metals go with warmer tones. 
As a wedding guest, there aren’t that many rules you could break, just make sure to stay away from anything white or lacey for obvious reasons! 
Just because you’re attending as a guest, doesn’t mean you have to blend into the crowd, shop our wedding guest edit at Joshua James: 

 

Necklaces

Necklaces are a key component in wedding jewellery, essentially they can completely accentuate and revive your outfit.

‘Emerald Dreams’ Dark and Beautiful Winter Wedding Inspiration

Today is all about Winter and Autumn weddings and giving you some beautiful inspiration if you are planning on getting married in the Winter months. Summer and Spring weddings are amazing, but a lot can be said for planning your wedding inside and this shoot is a great example of what can be done with dark Winter-like venues. The shoot took place on 17th March 2019 at Allington Manor in Lincolnshire. The team of wedding suppliers wanted to show something different, so mixed deep, dark tones with emerald green and mustard. These accents of colours work beautifully with the luxe backdrop and are the perfect example of how you can utilise the darkness of Winter to create a dramatic wedding set up.

Shot in Allington Manor, with a subtle Emerald and Mustard colour palette within the dark woods and rustic tones of the Allington Manor House dating back to the 1450’s
