5 ideas for a DIY wedding like Stacey Solomon’s Pickle Cottage nuptials

Stacey Solomon was a very hands-on bride in the lead up to her wedding to long term partner Joe Swash, which she described as a ‘dream’.

Rather than sit back and leave the planning to a team of staff, she found immense enjoyment in creating elements of the decor for the big day herself.

For the wedding at Pickle Cottage, the home she shares with Joe and their blended family, she helped to decorate her pergola with beautiful pink flowers which have a sentimental nod to her hen do, as well as create an epic door display. The younger guests weren’t left out either with Stacey making goody bags for them to sift through at the event.
