  • Sell My Wedding – Upcycled Wedding

    Getting married but don’t want your budget to spiral out of control? Think if you do have a wedding on  budget you will compromise on style and a whole lot of prettiness? Fear not, the style team at Sell My Wedding, where someone’s old could be your something new, show that a “second hand wedding” does not mean playing second fiddle in the style stakes.

    So Rebecca of Sell My Wedding rose to a challenge set by Wedding and Event Planners, All Wrapped Up Events, to create  an “UpCycled” wedding look where all items had to come from charity shops or second hand stores. Flowers had to be free and from someone’s garden, hair and makeup could be done professionally or by yourself – their team opted to do it themselves and used their friends as their models.

     

    I’ll hand over to her to tell you all about it.

    Sell My Wedding Upcycled Shoot

    Our team consisted of:

     

    Our Concept

    We wanted to show that second hand wedding items could be fabulous (which is the main idea behind www.sellmywedding.co.uk) and decided to theme our wedding around the 1964 musical Mary Poppins.

    This theme gave us the opportunity to stage a very British affair, an English tea party (and still a very popular wedding theme) featuring Edwardian influences – lace, florals, china – items we thought we would be readily available in car boot sales and charity shops.  And we were not wrong, we found some fabulous items including two amazing swan centrepeices.

    From these ‘feed the bird’ inspired centrepeices to suitcases, umbrellas and spoonfuls of sugar we hoped that the influences of the film shone though whilst demonstrating that secondhand wedding items could indeed be fabulous.

     

    Following the shoot all of the items were listed at their original charity shop price on href=”http://www.sellmywedding.co.uk” target=”_blank”>Sell My Wedding – a few of which are still available. So if there is anything that takes your fancy come and check us out at www.sellmywedding.co..uk 

     

     Thankyou to Rebecca at Sell My Wedding and her style team for sharing this pretty shoot. Stylish, fresh and who can resist Mary Poppins? If you have a theme you would like to share or have a style dilemma please get in touch. It’s your blog so we would love you to be involved.Bye for now, Jenny.
