Well well, haven’t I been a bit quiet on the blogging front lately?! Life has kind of gotten in the way, as I’ve had two fairly major (and absolutely wonderful) things happen during the first half of 2013 – I’ve moved from the city to the country and…I got married! I am now a Mrs and my wedding was the most amazing day of my life – the day after our wedding I said to my new husband, ‘Can we do it again next weekend?!’, it was just so much fun and so lovely to be surrounded by our most favourite people in the world. I’ve included a few photos of the day below, including the favours I made for my guests, because that’s what you’re all dying to see right?! Our photographer was the wonderful Anna of Sweet Hope Photography, who was just everything we could want in a wedding photographer and so much more – she is an absolute delight! We are lucky enough to be able to say that every other vendor we worked with on our wedding was equally as wonderful, and I’ll post about them in more detail once I can get my hands on more photographs!

Good morning darlings! Today I’m very excited to share with you a guest post from Casey of Rustique Wedding Designs.

Hi My Darling Heart Fans! I’m thrilled to be guest blogging for Katy this week and am a massive fan of her work myself. A little about me, my names Casey and I’m from over at Rustique Wedding Designs. I created my blog to share beautiful rustic inspiration and my goal is to style and plan Rustique Chic designed weddings.
Today I’m going to share some inspiration for creating a charming barn wedding and how to create that barn look without the barn:
Barns create an instant atmosphere to a wedding and adding hanging lights and draping turn it into something magical, intimate and inviting. But what if you there is no barn in sight and you still want to include some elements on your big day, here are some ideas:
By bringing some of the same elements across- old doors, hay bales and wine barrels you can still have a charming atmosphere without the barn and your guests will love all the details. If you love the amazing dress featured it is from Gowns of Elegance and the favours are of course made by My Darling Heart.

Thanks a lot for having me, Casey x
