Real Weddings :: Vintage Carnival Theme

Working with two little boys running all around is not an easy task but thankfully, with my husband's help, we managed to pull everything together before the guests arrived. Apologies in advance for the poor photography.

Real Weddings :: Vintage Carnival Theme

pinwheels to line the church aisle

Last July, I was roped in to help a good friend create decorations for her church wedding ceremony. 

She wanted a vintage carnival feel to the wedding and so I tried to incorporate pinwheels, buntings and i also designed a number of images that were used on the guestcards, powerpoint slides and the wedding programme. 

The theme was such fun to work on and I also won't pretend that I didn't LOVE the colours that they chose - fuschia pink, orange and lime green. The palate just seemed to shout spring and all things happy and vibrant. 

I had a great time working on this wedding project, can you tell?  really had to reign myself in on this one.

Here are some snapshots at the wedding decor that I helped prep.
