A Beautiful Vintage Wedding Institute

I gathered together my handmade and vintage adornments and took the most beautiful ride along the coast to Saltburn on Sea to join The Wedding Institute girls for a very inspiring and divine day full of very talented and passionate girls, boys and brides...topped of with lots of delicious cakes.

I was so delighted to be next to Gem the very talented, silver loving, word loving and fun girlie, we had lots of fun and giggles...and I couldn't resist a couple of her pieces...I'll post my purchases in my next blog!
