Real Wedding – Mr & Mrs Flavin


Hello readers,

Today’s post will include photographs from Mr & Mrs Flavin’s wedding, taken by the talented Miranda Lynn. If you’re considering a rustic theme wedding, check out these inspirational images, with details on how the bride transformed a barn into the perfect wedding venue.

I loved how Miranda was able to capture memorable moments, that the couple can cherish forever. It seemed like a really fun and creative wedding, which is truly inspiring. Below you can find tips from the bride her self, on how she organised her special day:

“I made, with help from the bridesmaids and aunts, all of the table decorations in the barn for the reception. We used mason jars with yellow beads, wild flowers, just a few Gerber Daisies and pussy willows, on a burlap table runner along with stacks of classic novels, to incorporate our book-worm side.

FJ’s Mom sewed the bar cover using two shades of grey fabric and I made all of the ties for it, using Gerber Daisies and ribbon. She also made our ring bearers pillow!

I painted wine bottles and used twine, burlap, and lace to decorate them in various ways, and put more of the wild flowers and our engagement photos in them for the cocktail hour tables.

FJ and the groomsmen made the hay bale couches for outdoor seating, and we covered them in old quilts. I also made a ‘wedding board’ for guests to sign.

We both love to read and whenever we go to a new place together we go to antique shops to try and find classic novels that have really old copyright dates. We have over 300 books, and a lot of them were used on the tables for our reception. ” – Alyssa 


I would like to thank the beautiful bride for sharing her special day with us, I wish them both a lifetime full of happiness.
