Backyard weddings aren’t really that common in the UK and if you’re wondering what a backyard wedding is, read on! Backyard weddings are much more popular in the US, and they really just mean a wedding in your back garden, hosted at home, instead of at a wedding venue. They often allow for a much more personal feel, because the decoration options are literally endless!
When Nicola and John contacted me about their home wedding, I couldn’t have been more excited. Their wonderful friends agreed to lend them their home and garden, letting them have a beautifully informal and relaxed wedding day. With a church to get married in literally next door, it really was a no brainer!

The family and friends all pitched in to make it a special day. Keep on scrolling to see some badass homemade pinatas!
