If we were in America Becki and Josh would definitely be described as high school sweethearts (they’ve known each other since they were eleven!). Seeing photos of them on display from when they were at school together and from various stages of their relationship on a corkboard display at their reception venue was so cute and a lovely idea!
Mr & Mrs Jarvis were married in a fabulously pretty, colourful, untraditional, and vintage inspired day in Nottinghamshire. The groomsmen wore converse, open collared shirts with their waistcoats, and the bride, her Mum, and bridesmaid younger sister went for 50s style dresses and hair. Following their ceremony at Goosedale in Papplewick, Nottingham, the couple travelled onwards to their reception venue of Inkersall Grange Farm in a super cute white split screen vintage campervan.
If you hadn’t already guessed, bride Becki is a huge lover of all things vintage and this definitely played a part in the styling for her wedding day, but as self confessed nerds, they also wanted to incorporate a bit of comic book love, with the groomsmen opting for superhero cufflinks and socks along with comic book page inspired confetti and bunting in the tipi. Due to working to a budget, and also simply because she enjoys crafting and upcycling, Becki opted to go diy as much as possible for her wedding day, doing her own decorations for the day and also her own flowers. Family members also helped with the diy aspect to the day creating extra bits and bobs and the brides Auntie created their wedding cakes. Instead of a formal wedding breakfast the couple chose afternoon tea for their guests to tuck into during the speeches. Also, as a wonderful extra little surprise for Becki, her Mum Teresa had booked a vintage singer, Rose Devine, to perform in the evening and get the party started! To round the evening off guests were treated to fish and chips and some karaoke!
Becki and Josh had always planned for their day to be a celebration of their families uniting without the formal atmosphere of a traditional wedding, and just wanting everyone to really enjoy themselves, and with a day like that I think it would have been extremely hard for anyone not to have had a wonderful time and leave with huge smiles and awesome memories from a quirky, fun, and colourful day. Thank you for letting me a part of it Mr & Mrs Jarvis!
