Our wedding seating plan last September has now become a photo frame in our hallway – not only does it hold all our photobooth pictures, we used Smileybooth which cost £375 for 2 hours including unlimited photo prints & a guestbook. I would 100% recommend having a booth, it was such good fun & all our guests loved it, as well as the photo’s being absolutely hilarious…I won’t put up the naked rugby player photo or the several ‘naughty’ couple pics eeek.
I found the frame in a charity shop window, it was originally gold with a not-so-delightful copy of an ancient landscape picture in it. For £2.50 I thought it was worth a makeover so snapped it up. The entire seating plan cost me under £5!
After browsing Pinterest I decided to paint it using Annie Sloan Paris Grey, then used string pearl beading & my trusty glue gun to fix 3 layers across. I found the clips in The Range (tiny wooden pegs with paper flowers on) in the craft section which cost 99p for approx 12 pegs.
For the wording, I bought brown rustic looking card & was planning to use my stamp set but after a few attempts it ended up looking a bit messy (& not in a good way). In the end I downloaded a typewriter font (travelling typewriter) which is available here for free & printed on to the card then simply cut them to size & hung them on.
I love having some of our wedding decoration bits around the house especially photos by the wonderful Charlotte Marie Photography of all of our family & friends celebrating our future together. It’s nearly been a year since we got married so i’ll be blogging about our 1 wedding/anniversary/1st year soon 🙂
Love, Charlotte x
