Handmade Weddings: Close to Home

Mar 24, 2012

by ohnoodles handmade and vintage goods

Rin Hubbard, formerly Rin Lincolne-Tolley, is the daughter of Australian craft genius Pip Lincolne and works as a chef at Lowlands Espresso in Preston. Her husband Joe is a social media nerd and guitarist in the Melbourne surf rock band The Bluebottles. The couple met five years ago and live in Preston with their housemate Sarah and their two cats, Felix and Blanket. They love good coffee, good food, TV series addictions, music, and most of all, cats! Rin has a blog called Oh Noodles that she is slightly slack in updating.

In the months before our wedding, my mum Pip put a call out on her blog, Meet Me At Mike’s, asking if people would like to contribute to our wedding by making a pom pom and sending it to us. Well, let me tell you, that worked like a treat! By the day of our wedding, we had hundreds and hundreds of pom poms from all over the world. Most of the people who sent pom poms had never even met us — people are so lovely! We strung them through our fig trees, from marquees and pretty much anywhere they could be strung.

The week before our big day, I had a ladies’ craft evening. This is where most of the handmade goodness happened. Myself and ten or so lady pals got together at my house, ate delicious food and crafted everything from lolly bags to paper planes to individual confetti bags.

All of our flowers were from my mother-in-law’s garden and a florist friend’s boutique. My close friend Clara arranged them in posies on the tables and in hanging jars my husband and I made. Clara also baked a Fruit Tingle cake and was in charge of the pre-wedding bride breakfast and pampering, as well as keeping me sane!

The day before the wedding was our big set up day. My mum’s best friends hung streamers and bunting they made for us, catapulted pom poms into trees and yarn bombed our front fence with the words “Rin + Joe.” My mum was busy making dough and prepping toppings for the delicious pizzas that were going to feed our 100+ guests.

On the big day, it rained all morning, which ruined our decorating plans. Loads of family and friends came to help out, and all of a sudden it was time for us to go to our hotel and get ready! We didn’t have a bridal party, but Joe’s older brother, my close friend Clara, and our photographer Eric came to the hotel with us and drank bubbly while we all got ready together.

Before we knew it, we were walking back into our house and down the “aisle” in front of all our favorite people. We made our entrance together as our three brothers and our housemate played guitars and sang an acoustic version of “Such Great Heights” by The Postal Service. It was a bit teary and good, to say the least.

The ceremony was great, with everyone cheering and clapping and being raucous. When we were pronounced husband and wife, the guests popped champagne and we swigged Passion Pop from the bottle and flailed our arms in happiness.

After the business part was done, everyone ate Mum’s homemade pizzas. The fig pizza with fruit from our own trees was the most popular. My youngest brother manned the snow cone machine and our guests played badminton in the front yard. We did family speeches, which were full of happy crying. The friend speeches were full of giggles and jokes.

But best of all was the cake buffet. Together we cut the biggest cake to reveal the inside — layered rainbow colored sponge! It was amazing. All of our guests got a photo of the happy couple (us!) and a lolly bag to take home. Before we left, everyone threw bags and bags of confetti at us. The little kids loved it the best. We walked up the main street to our hotel, with big smiles and confetti in our hair. It was the best day ever.

  • barbleatherman

    Barb Leatherman from SecondStoryStitches said 9 years ago

    This is so beautiful to read! Congratulations! My daughter's wedding is in June this year and we are making it "homemade" as well. I believe people are getting tired of the $20,000 plus weddings. Erin and Chris will be married at a barn with a very old house/museum on the property. There will be a barbeque buffet, lemonade, cupcakes, the flower centerpieces will be in old blue canning jars (wildflowers not florists). We plan to celebrate with family and friends - the most important thing about a wedding! Good job!

What I love is that you made it about the both of you. The rainbow cake,pizza, snow cones and drinking passion pop from the bottle are my favourites. Not to mention the heaps of photos of you guys as a couple. Heres to many years together!!!

    Marni from rebourne said 9 years ago

    We were married in my parent's backyard, with 20 guests present. It was such a magical, homemade, intimate, and amazing day. Every person helped out, the only person not related to us was my mom's best friend (flowers) and our photographer (close friend). I cherish our day and our guests and my barefoot walk down our backyard aisle.

    What a fun & fabulous DIY wedding! I love so may of the colorful details, am hard pressed to pick faves - though the poms sent in by people known and unknown is the best ever, like getting hundreds of loving wishes for your wedding - what a unique blessing :) I also adore the typewriter cake, your rainbow surprise wedding cake, and the flower suitcases. Congrats Rin & Joe, wishing you much love and laughter ~ Suzanne

    Initially saw the house photo and said to myself 'that has to an Australian house' which made me read on, and so glad I did .... Love the originality (outside the square for sure), Awesome how everyone contributed in some way and looked like so much fun! .. Most of all the badminton in the front yard (in wedding garb of course) and bride's barefeet were undoutedly my favourites. A big thank you for sharing those moments Rin and Joe, and my very best wishes to you both.

    What lovely photos, people, and feeling! Very very nice. Love all the touches including blue toenails. My husband and I are married 3 years now and it was my 2nd wedding. Ours was also handmade, I even made my dress from recycled fabric and my own wedding cake. My friend did the flowers with some we bought at a local market. My first was poncy and expensive (and not to my taste but to please others) and I will remember the 2nd with so much more happiness (including the man in it). I wish Rin and her man many happy years of a life together and I can see they are such interesting and clever people.

Divinely simple, blissfully understated, this is the kind of arrangement that leaves room for joy and sheer happy fun! Seriously you guys, I could ramble on and on and I don't even like weddings at all. :) Thank you for sharing this!

    Lovely! I am preparing for a exactly this kind of wedding in 1 month time. We just sent out our invitations and we got a few surprised but positive reactions to our bring-your-own wedding party! Right now I am terribly busy crafting everything I need for our day, so I really liked the idea of a craft day with friends (I could use some help!). Unfortunately we do not have a large garden as you had, so we will have our party at home. My future husband is still hoping for some very nice weather, so we can move everything to the beach! Congratulations! love, Merel

    I loved the organic feel to this wedding. Unfussy and beautiful.

    Oh man! I love this wedding. I seriously wish I had done something like this. I LOVED the rainbow wedding cake and the flowers in the suit case.
