Are you looking for something beautiful and totally unique for your wedding, that will make a really powerful impact and make your guests’ faces light up? So were Jack and Leah! Here is their custom papel picado wedding bunting... some of the photography was done by a photographer who shoots for Vogue and who has recently published portraits of Idris Elba & Spike Lee, and some were taken by a former member of Magnum Photos!
Their wedding took place at Manorbier Castle in Pembrokeshire, Wales on June 9th, 2018. This stunning historic venue was founded in the late 11th century and passed through the hands of many, including the Earls of Pembroke.
Jack and Leah made beautiful use of a weatherproof marquee tent by draping crepe from the ceiling to create an intimate and soft effect. They then hung fresh floral garlands down the middle of the space and finished the look off with our custom Mexican wedding bunting in #12 Lilac, #13 Light Violet, #18 Pale Green, #36 Bougainvillea, #38 Sunshine Yellow, #1 White hand-cut custom-made tissue paper flags.
Every order of our Mexican wedding bunting comes with the same quantity of free mini papel picado waving flags which are the perfect personalised wedding favours! So for Jack and Leah’s order of 112 meters of personalised papel picado bunting, they received 112 free waving flags, cut with a beautiful design of two doves, flowers and their names “JACK & LEAH”. If you look closely, you can see them waving in the Welsh breeze, as the happy couple comes out of the castle chapel, in a flurry of bubbles blown excitedly by their admiring guests waiting below.
Our custom Mexican wedding bunting features gorgeous love themes such as doves, hearts and the word ‘AMOR’ (love in Spanish!). Rather than have all six of our regular designs, they selected our large heart flag, the AMOR flag, the couple’s names flag, and Jack and Leah also requested one additional special custom-made flag featuring their own 'House of Rad' crest design, which had personal significance to the bride and groom.
Aprylle thought it would look best as a vertical flag placed after every three other horizontal flags. Here is the garland sketch that she sent Jack & Leah during their email conversation about their order.
And here is the couple's crest design that they sent us and the papel picado flag we made them copying it.
The happy couple sent all their guests these gorgeous ‘Thank You’ cards created by the talented James Nash that feature the House of Rad shield and their iconic appearance in front of Manorbier Castle.
It was a pleasure to work with Jack & Leah throughout the order process, they were so friendly and so excited about their custom wedding bunting! They sent us in this lovely review after the party! Thanks guys and happy married life to you both! xxx
