Real Weddings: Our DIY Backyard Wedding

If you don't already know us, we are Kirstie and Daniel, a couple in our late twenties and the creators of everything you see here at The Printable Shop. As of Saturday, 1st of September 2018, we are officially married! We are so thrilled to join our past customers in the journey of marriage and have some inspiration for our future customers that are planning on having a DIY wedding.

Working in the wedding industry, we already had a general idea of what we wanted for the big day; an intimate ceremony, good music, good food, native florals and greenery, natural textures, wooden accents and a home-made game of Jenga.

We had family members create a lot of features that we used, and we put together a decadent banquet lunch to have immediately after a short ceremony with an abundance of some of our favourite foods, iced tea and good home brewed beer.

It's no longer 1920 and many of the old rules no longer apply when planning your wedding. Brides are now wearing coloured dresses, couples are doing rehearsed dance routines and our brother/sister in law (on Kirstie's side) had a batman wedding cake.

Even if these ideas aren't your personal style, love deserves to be expressed genuinely and when it comes to planning your wedding you do not need to follow anybody else's opinions. You shouldn't be afraid to break from tradition and take the path less travelled to come up with something totally unique. We hope you enjoy these photos from our intimate rustic boho style DIY backyard wedding!
