The Oaks | DIY Wedding | Jayne & Daniel

As featured on Polka Dot Bride, Jayne and Daniel had an eclectic wedding at their home. This wedding was very much focused around family with a nod to The Wizard of Oz. It really emphasised that there is no place like home, especially when it comes to a wedding.

When Jayne met Daniel, she already had two boys of her own. As their relationship developed, Daniel became a father figure for her boys and later on they completed their family with the arrival of their daughter. It was very important to Jayne and Daniel to have their children and their family take part in their special day. Unfortunately Jayne’s father had passed away recently before the wedding, so the use of photographs and a collection of sentimental belongings were used in the styling to reflect his presence.

Jayne and Daniel collected an array of old furniture and pieces to recycle and use for their reception. Beneath the marquee and inside their home, these pieces – chairs and tables, bench seats, lamps etc. were used to create the rustic, eclectic and homely feel that their wedding oozed.

The Wizard of Oz theme was reflected in Jayne’s ruby red shoes, their wedding at home and “Somewhere over the Rainbow” used at the ceremony and on the invitations.

Vintage handkerchiefs were rolled and tied around the programs for happy tears. Ashdown & Bee created chalkboard signs to guide the guests.

Jayne personalised some second hand, glass top nestling tables by slipping old family photographs, postcards and their wedding invitation underneath the glass.
