Brides Up North

Castles in the Clouds, A Real Wedding – Beckie & Gary

Featured Supplier and absolutely amazing luxury wedding photographer Ryan Browne Weddings sent me this fabulous Cheshire Real Wedding.   So atmospheric, and Ryan captures it all so wonderfully.  I think Brides Up North may have a talent on our hands…

Let’s hear it from the gorgeous bride: I met Gary just over 5 years ago and we were best friends from the start. It only took him 2 years to make his first move, but we have been inseparable  ever since! When he proposed on our very own boat in the middle of the ocean in Sardinia it was a dream come true and I knew I had found my soul mate.

Searching for the venue for our wedding we could not have been more excited and when we stumbled upon Peckforton Castle we fell in love with it. We could not have found a more special and magical venue that 
was just perfect for a winter wedding.

We got married on 20th December and my prayers for snow were answered.  Running more than a little late, but arriving in style in a white Rolls Royce I was a bag of nerves.

Lit by hundreds of candles and decorated with Christmas trees and the white rose and orchid candelabra  arrangements, my first view of the Great Hall took my breath away.

The ceremony was more than a little emotional for me, but gliding down the aisle in a huge princess style dress surrounded by our closest family and friends was a lifetime dream fulfilled and I enjoyed every 
second of it.

The day could not have been more perfect and I don’t think either of us stopped smiling or laughing the entire time. Our only complaint was that it was all over too quickly!

We have just received our photos and video trailer back and they have captured every moment and mood of the day magnificently. We couldn’t  have wished for more and they will provide a lifetime of special memories that we will never forget.

Julia Braime
Former lawyer and bride to be Julia founded Brides Up North in 2010 with a chip on her shoulder.
