The Renegade Craft Fair and a bit of Brick lane...

Last week it was the 2nd annual Renegade Craft Fair at The Old Truman Brewery in Brick Lane.

The Renegade Craft Fair (RCF) is a large scale marketplace event, showcasing the work of contemporary indie-craft artists. Featuring hundreds of artists at a time, vendors travel from all over to sell their handmade goods and original artwork. RCF is held in urban epicenters of creative indie-entrepreneurship throughout the US and abroad – including Brooklyn, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Austin, and London (UK).

We popped down for a little shopping spree!

There were some gorgeous and unique brands, make sure you check out their website.

After spending a small fortune at the fair, we had a mooch around Brick Lane EC1, and took a few pics of some amazing street art to share with you.

Have a good week! x

It's a nice day for a White Wedding.......

Summer. Sunshine, warm long nights, ice cream, strawberries and of course weddings!

This summer I went to one of the most beautiful weddings I think I have ever been to. My mums best friend's daughter.

The wedding was set in a converted barn in the rolling hills of Staffordshire. With the most gorgeous highland cows in the field next door.

As the guest's arrived in a vintage London bus, they were met by a Bagpiper, while the master of ceremonies showed us the way to the barn when the wedding ceremony was taking place.

The service was so beautiful and touching, out of nowhere a white barn owl flew down the isle with the wedding bands tiled to it's feet.

While the new Mr and Mrs had there photographs taken, the guests were served strawberries and cream, retro bottle's of Coca Cola and bucks fizz.

Dotted around the court yard were stunning "sweet treat" trees, and vintage swing boats for the children.

Drink me!

Sweet treats, not just for children!

Eat me!

Vintage Swing fun boats (also not just for children!)

The wedding breakfast was severed in converted stables, beautiful dressed tables with stunning center pieces and favours.

While the desserts were being severed a choir sang a medley of love songs.

After drinks in the court yard, the evening celebrations started, scummy wedding cake, a hog roast and a vintage ice cream chart.

It was a perfect day, I don't think anyone their wanted it to end!

I'd like to take this oppertunity to say thank you to Adam and Lisa for inviting me to their gorgeous day and I wish you all the love and luck in the future. xxx
