Spring has sprung and with it the hedgerows are bursting with wild flowers, lambs are frolicking in the (sporadic!) sunshine and the wedding season has definitely begun! At Nkuku we offer a beautiful selection of wedding decorations and gifts all perfect for that special day.  We were all thrilled at Nkuku HQ when Jess, our European Sales guru announced her wedding plans. Here she shares memories from the day!

“We had just got engaged when I started working for Nkuku in January 2013 at Maison et Objet in Paris. So, when I saw all the beautiful products on the stand I decided to create a wedding list and starting thinking about how we could use some of the products for our beach wedding.

My fiancé (Paddy) and I wanted an intimate, relaxed wedding ceremony and reception with all the special people in our life. We decided to risk the weather (we were very lucky!) and to have the ceremony on a beautiful, secluded little beach near to where we live in south Devon, which we often go to with our daughter Sofia and love.

 The ceremony was very personal, written by us, conducted by Paddy’s Uncle and our friends and family joined us in singing a couple of songs that were special to us and despite the stunning weather the beach was empty except for our guests. To decorate our beach ceremony we used Kamala lanterns and filled the glasses with flowers to create an aisle and bamboo sticks and homemade flags and white bunting to create an area at the end of the aisle for Paddy and I to stand in front of the sea.

Our ceremony was followed by a glass of sparkling wine on the beach and then everyone made their way to the house that we had rented just behind the beach for the reception. We enjoyed an amazing Mediterranean/Middle Eastern feast and wine, which had been cooked by my mum and paddy’s mum and a team of their friends the day before. The house had a lovely garden which we decorated with white bunting, little tables with Evie T-light holders filled with wild flowers and a Bell tent with toys and games for the children.  At the front of the house there was a beautiful little courtyard which we decorated with loads of white bunting, hanging t-lights and these amazing over-sized flowers, where everyone congregated in the evening and we did our first dance .

A huge number of family and friends helped us prepare and decorate the day before and all the flowers came from a close family friend’s garden. It was the most magical, wonderful day and everybody there made the day so perfect and memorable.

I am reminded of how amazing the day was every day when I see our wedding photos, beautifully displayed by the kiko frames that we were given as wedding presents from our wedding list. “
