A homemade, rustic wedding in France!
If you love down to earth, simple weddings with a splash of homemade rustic detailing, you’re going to LOVE this handmade wedding. Hannah and Mark married in a family friends garden in Honfluer, France. Their yellow, navy and white wedding was a real family affair.
I love that their friends and families really got involved with the making of their day. From the make-up to the bridal accessories to the wedding cake everything was handmade or done by a friend. Hannah’s dad even styled her wedding air. Yes-sir-rea! How sweet is that?
Keep on reading for all the gorgeous details brought to you by our lovely bride Hannah.

When first planning our wedding we both weren’t too bothered about the photos as we didn’t want to make a big deal of it. However, we really didn’t realise how incredible it was to have the memories.
Our fantastic photographers Jonny and Hannah of Verman Photography captured every essence and emotion. The photos have allowed us to re live each moment and we will eternally be grateful!
I wore a custom made lace dress by Victoria Allinson Couture. As we married in the garden I chose a raised hem, I didn’t want my dress to drag on the floor!
We bought local french flowers that my Mum then arranged into button holes and other decorative pieces.
My mum made these pretty flower corsages and the navy bridesmaid dresses were from ASOS.
I wore a hairband which my Mum also made and my Dad did my hair on the day.
My Dad walked me down the aisle to Asher Kane.
We spent a whole year making meters and meters of yellow, blue and white bunting!
It’s great to get family and friends involved, it makes the day so special when you’ve all worked together.
Qurs really was a homemade wedding, everything from the guest book to even the confetti was made by hand, mostly by my mum!
On the day we were able to all say we did this and created this day together. There wouldn’t have been a wedding without family!

If I could impart any words of wisdom for future brides…
Choose a few important aspects/themes for your wedding and expand on those rather than trying to do too much, there are so many ideas put out there, it is difficult!
I would recommend having a wedding co-ordinator for the day to help everything run smoothly.
What a fab, relaxed wedding, it looks like Hannah and Mark had a brilliant day.
Thank you so much for sharing your wedding with the Want That Wedding blog, here’s wishing you both a very long and happy future.
