Preserve memories of your wedding in jewellery with Shpangle...

I've never heard of this before, and its a lovely idea!

Traditionally, capturing memories of the big day take the form of photographs and videos, but there are often other items which helped make the day special that the bride and groom may have kept but are unsure what to do with. These can be anything from confetti used at the ceremony or table confetti used to decorate the tables at the reception, from flowers to ribbon, wedding favours, or anything else that made the day special.
All these items can be preserved forever and even worn and enjoyed for many years to come in the form of resin jewellery. And it is not just an item of jewellery that could be made to capture flowers or those special memories. Resin preservation can be used to create many items to suit just about anyone. Key-rings, phone charms, bag charms, cufflinks ...there to always remind you of the special day, whether you are the bride, groom or the family members and friends.

Find a unique car to travel in!

My first car was a Morris Minor a long time ago!

I managed to find a local company who had a wonderful white Morris Minor convertable called Molly (a name that was special to us, our big ginger Tom, (who was called Molly, a long story why!!) had died the year before).

Our driver Charles was lovely and drove really slow so we could make the most of our journey!

Fantastic venue in the Nottingham countryside....Woodborough Hall....

I research all the venues I could find when we got marries last year... and Woodborough Hall was perfect for us!
The hall has lots of original features, but also a quirky style which we loved!
We had a fantastic wedding there and the staff were so friendly!

Wedding Planner in the East Midlands.....

Tillyboo Events are based in Nottingham and they helped to make our wedding last year so special... I would fully recommend them!

Why read this blog?

A couple of years ago I got engaged.... And this started my passion for planning our big day and making it as unique as possible. I searched for the ideal wedding invitations, but couldn’t find anything “just right”.

I decided to create my own wedding stationery and make it personal to us and therefore as unique as possible. As I have worked in the embroidery business for years, I had the idea to embroider napkins that matched the stationary, these could then also be used as favours for our guests.

I was so pleased by the finished result and I had so many compliments... And also a couple of requests by friends to do their wedding stationery and embroidered napkins.

I have now set up my own business creating beautiful monogrammed wedding stationery and matching embroidered napkins.

I have set up this blog to record our wedding stationery designs, but also, a place to share unique wedding ideas..... I love finding great table decoration, flower styles, or fabulous dress ideas and I will post them on my Unique Wedding Blog.
