On Tuesday I was thrilled to spotlight on the fabulous Pretty You London who have released their first Bridal Collection and who introduce their ‘Bridal Slippers’ to the UK market.

Now anyone that has been a Bride or is going to be a Bride knows, footwear is a hot topic of discussion but don’t your tootsies deserve to be treasured before those Bridal shoes go on, and later on when all the walking and the dancing has taken its toll.

On Thursday morning I was thrilled to share some advice from Get Knotted on how to transform a barn into a warm romantic Wedding Space.

‏Are you not the country house, or city chic Bride and are looking to get married in a location that can be made to look and feel just how you want it to?

Barns are perfect as they are often a blank canvas, giving you the scope to have your wedding styled exactly how you always imagined, however their size alone can be daunting.

Lindsey Hunter of Get Knotted gives us her recipe for transforming a barn from blank and chilly to warm and romantic in a step by step way.

Transforming a barn into a warm romantic Wedding Space

 

Steeped in history, the Houses of Parliament / Palace of Westminster in London provide a unique venue and setting for a wedding celebration.

Dominating the banks of the River Thames, the Palace of Westminster’s resplendent façade heralds this UNESCO World Heritage site as one of the most iconic in the world.

Over the centuries the Palace has evolved to become the historical heart of the country, and is home of the United Kingdom’s Parliament, and an incredible place to start married life.

I hand over to the team to tell their story…

 

Who are you, and what do you do?

“Hello we are jamball creations – a husband and wife team of Pete and Jaime Ball.”

“We are based here in the UK and totally devoted to creating the exclusively designed bouquet of your dreams.”

When and why did you start your Company?

“Everything started with Jaimes Grandma’s button tin and wanting something of her to be with us on our wedding day back in 2008.”

“She was a funny/crazy/full of life/party animal but passed away a few years before we managed to tie the knot.”

“Our idea was to make button trees to put on every table so she’d be with every guest and this developed into making a corsage for every single guest.”

“We made over 150 simple felt and button corsages, nine button ball vases, made all the place mats/names and made a wedding tree of buttons for people to sign on the day.”

“Jaime’s bouquet was a very simple purple felt and button number and her sister had a smaller felt and button posy.”

“We’re both very crafty and wanted to make as much as we could for our own wedding.”

“We had a great day and so did all our guests – a few of which started us making alternative bouquets and corsages for their weddings and so Jamball started.”

What makes you unique?

“We are unique because our clients are unique and they are our designers.”

“We hand cut all our felts, use only vintage buttons & beads or we can make bouquets specifically to your desire.”

“You want tattoo’s – no problem, you want superhero’s – we’re there for you, you want dog tags, ice-creams, dragonflies mixed up with a bit of bling – we’ve got it covered.”

“The client is the designer and everything they dream of we’ll put together for their bouquet.”

“Our most unique feature is that our bouquets are free standing which means our bouquets can be displayed anywhere without the fuss of finding a matching vase.”

What is your greatest achievement?

“We consider our marriage as our greatest achievement.”

“Not only do we work on each order together but we would never even have started the business without getting married.”

“We made all our own bouquets and table decorations from felt and buttons.”

“We made a corsage for every guest that attended the wedding as a keepsake and even made giant robot corsage for the groom and bestman.”

“Without the encouragement we got from all our friends and family we would never even have considered starting “Jamball”

What do you see as the future of your Company?

“As jamball gets more and more popular we are receiving more and more orders.”

“We are getting our new brides from past brides “bigging us up” on social media such as Facebook and twitter and this is great for us.”

“We only do one wedding fair a year which is “The Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza” in Birmingham as this is the only fair that seems to fit our unique style and is attended by lots of like minded brides.”

“As our notoriety gets bigger then we both hope to work at our Jamball business full-time and maybe attend more alternative or quirky wedding fairs.”

“Hopefully we’ll see you there”

Transforming a barn into a warm romantic Wedding Space‏

Today I am thrilled to share some advice from Get Knotted on how to transform a barn into a warm romantic Wedding Space.

‏Are you not the country house, or city chic Bride and are looking to get married in a location that can be made to look and feel just how you want it to?

Barns are perfect as they are often a blank canvas, giving you the scope to have your wedding styled exactly how you always imagined, however their size alone can be daunting.

To create warmth and intimacy in a large, vacuous area – a complete blank canvas – you will need:

 

Ingredients

 

• Style, flair and vision

• Lighting

• Props

• One happy couple, friends and family

 

get-knotted, branches_and_brights, wedding venue

 

Method

 

The entrance

• Make your entrance a teaser for your guests by decorating it with lanterns or fairy lights

• Arrange lights as a pathway leading inside

The ceremony

• Create an aisle using fresh bay trees in baskets or silver storm lanterns to walk in between as you head towards your groom

• A floral arch makes the most romantic place to say your “I do’s” underneath

• Use plenty of candle light to add to enhance the romantic atmosphere as you get married

• Match your chair cover fabrics or bale covers and cushions with the drapes to carry your theme throughout the barn

The décor

• Divide the space inside your barn into clearly defined areas – seating, chill out, dining, bar and dancing

• Use colourful drapes to soften the light and create smaller spaces

• Be bold with fabrics and colours for a unique look

• Barrels make great poseur tables and can be great for creating more intimate spaces

• Use lots of glass wear, candles and flowers to set the scene. Group stemmed cylinder vases of different heights with floating candles to emphasise the size and structure of your barn

• Create dramatic groupings of candle holders, flowers and even fruits depending on your style and theme for added special touches to your tables

• Create a seating area with low lighting and fun soft furnishings, such as inflatable sofas, straw bales and coffee tables

• Use wide trestle tables to make use of the space, which will also provide you with enough space for food and decorations

• Reduce vast expanses of empty wall with carefully positioned lighting such as twig lights or LED birch tree lights.

Use these at different heights for some added warmth. You can also use lighting to show off quirky features in your barn
