Real Weddings - Rob and April

Our next Real Wedding for the blog is Rob and April.

April is a fellow Mersey Etsy Team Leader so when she asked if I could make her wedding ties I obviously said yes!

April and Rob had an idea of the maximum number of items they could end up ordering so I worked up a quote for them breaking everything down by price so that they could pick and choose depending on their budget. And while they were whittling that list down they were also looking around for potential fabric choices. As a fellow designer April isn't afraid of colour and knowing that her dress was going to be featuring a lot of colourful embroidery they eventually settled on this bright Tresco print Tana Lawn.

In the end I made a selection of ties for groom Rob, the Father of the Bride and the adult ushers, with matching pocket squares for Rob and the FOTB. There were additional mini bow ties for one of the little pageboys and two of the babies who would be there too.

And last but not least Pixie and Alfie, April and Rob's rescue cats, had their own bow ties too!

I love April's bouquet and the matching buttonholes along with the gorgeous colours in April's dress, it all ties together so nicely with the men's accessories without being over the top, and bring a wonderful splash of colour to the crisp November day.
