Our Wedding (at long last)...


















It's been over six months since we got married in September (28.09.12 to be precise), and I can honestly say that the first half of our first year of marriage has absolutely flown by in a haze of busy, challenging, fun work and happiness! We're so in love... schmalzy, but true. I love calling Ryan 'my husband' and he loves calling me 'wife'! You don't quite realise just how awesome being married is, until you ARE... it's so special.

We are excited to be able to finally share some shots of our Wedding with you - as it's coverage, in Mollie Makes Handmade Wedding, hit the news-stands last week. We're in love with the spread in the magazine, so want to say a huge thank you to the team for featuring us, and the day we created, we had the best time.

Our Wedding was a thoroughly hand-made affair, and we made and designed almost all the details ourselves, as we were on such a shoe-string budget (and wouldn't have wanted it any other way, anyway!) so it felt unbelievably personal to us and really reflected what we wanted it to look and feel like. We had an amazing time, and hope our guests did too, so we hope you like seeing a little more of our day, even after all this time!

Venue- The Merchant Hotel / Photography - Tarah Coonan / Make-Up - Jennifer Ireland Make-Up Artist / Hair - Lynette Murray Hair / Head-Piece - William Chambers Millinery / Dress - Lynne Gregg (Ryan's Aunt - contact us for details) / My amazing lace for the dress - Berwick Street Cloth Shop / Cupcakes - The Cakery Bakery (with our own sugar flowers) 

Anything else you would like to know, we pretty much made ourselves, so just ask if you would like more details! A huge thank you to all our vendors, above, who were so fantastic to work with and did such a beautiful job for us... and to our family and friends who helped make it such a special day. xo!

With love!
Mr & Mrs Bell
