As I said just this Saturday on the wedding blog, I am all for featuring all different kinds of weddings in these pages and refuse to be shoe-horned into one genre.  Today’s Real Wedding is Brides Up North Featured Supplier Andy Pickard Peacock Pix’s own, and would probably fall into the “offbeat” category.  However, when I came to blog this Andy’s wedding I realised that there was nothing offbeat about it.  In fact, it was so “onbeat” with Andy’s fun and kooky personality, it was untrue. 

.

This wedding is quirky, it’s fun and it’s beautiful.  There’s a whole lot of peacock feathers, a whole load of inflatable guitars and a whole lorra love in these two amazing settings!  Fandabydosy!

Over to the groom: What  does a wedding photographer do when it’s comes to the point of realisation that they can’t shoot their own wedding?  Sally and I spent many hours searching the internet looking for that special person, someone who had the flair and romantic style to capture our unique peacock inspired wedding.  Andrew Billington Photography stood head and shoulders above all contenders with his fabulous eye and unmistakable style. Andy managed to capture every emotion filled moment with the decadent grandeur we envisioned when planning our once in a lifetime celebration.

We had planned a truly spectacular day from the pink Cadillac to the live rock band (Wild Turkey – Halifax’s premier party band)  and 100 inflatable guitars for all the budding air guitarists at our evening hog roast reception.

Sally designed her dress, made the bridesmaids’ jewellery, cake bands, table centres, hand fasting tie and also hand-embellished the invitations as well as sourcing many one of a kind hand crafted details such as her tiara, her bouquet of leather roses & peacock feathers, the Lego couple for the wedding cake and my wedding coat.

The two part ceremony – civil plus Pagan hand fasting – took place at Newstead Abbey, ancestral home of poet and playboy Lord Byron resplendent with with gothic architecture, sweeping grounds, lakes and (of course!) peacocks.

The venue also inspired our choice of wedding attire with velvet frock coat and frills for myself and Sally’s bespoke silk corseted dress featuring over 100 peacock feathers.

Forever Green Restaurant in Sherwood Forest supplied a magical secluded woodland setting for the hog roast reception and the party rocked on well into the night!
