Beautiful DIY wedding |The Yoghurt Rooms East Grinstead wedding photographer

The Yoghurt Rooms East Grinstead wedding photography


If you are looking for clever, creative DIY ideas for your wedding day, you are going to love this wedding! Alexander and Aimée held their ceremony at St Swithun’s church in East Grinstead, followed by a wonderful reception at  The Yoghurt Rooms.

Bursting with original, unique details that worked beautifully at this fun, countryside wedding venue, they treated their guests to a memorable day in the September sunshine. An entrance display of their story so far, including their  engagement photos, beautiful homemade stationery, delicate china cups resting on stacks of well-read books, recycled tins holding potted flowers and treats, and a collection of vintage framed photos remembering loved ones – the list goes on. All the details came together in such a meaningful way, it was perfect.

The guests enjoyed delicious cocktails, a relaxed wedding breakfast before the ice-cream van rocked up and the party started!

Here are their top tips:

  • “Decide on a theme that best suits the venue and represents you as a couple without dictating a particular colour scheme.”
  • “Work with that theme and all the things that mean something to you both throughout to bring it together.”
  • “Believe in your ability to create anything you want and dream of.”

Congratulations Alexander and Aimée, I feel so very honoured to have been your wedding photographer! It was such a special day to be a part of, one of the highlights of my summer in fact. Thanks also to my fab second photographer, Kerry.

Some kind words from the bride and groom:

“Hi Siobhan, we have just looked through the pictures….wow! Amazing, we love them so much! Thank you for giving us a memory that we can treasure for ever. That we can look back on and remember the best day of our lives.”
