A sunny start to Monday on the wedding blog with a gorgeous Real Wedding from another of the Greyeye Photography boys, Andy Garfitt.  Ah how I pine for those long summer’s days!  Don’t remember them?  Me neither!  But it looks like Jade and James picked a good one, as the sun was shining on their big day!

Jade tells us more:  James proposed on August bank holiday weekend in 2009 on the beach at Robin Hoods Bay (my favourite place!) and we got married at Sandburn Hall on 2 July 2011.  I found the venue on the internet and we went to their wedding fair (as we had been to several others) but when we were driving down the drive we knew this wasn’t like the others!  We walked into the venue and both fell in love.  This was it!

I wanted a simple and elegant dress so I went with a Alfred Angelo gown that I bought from Confetti & Lace.  Our colour theme was ivory, gold and taupe so the bridesmaids wore elegant floor length taupe Alfred Angelo dresses from Brides and Maids of Gomersal.  I carried a tear drop bouquet of ivory gerberas, calla lilies and coral lilies.

To add a personal touch, we had our dog Kyer with us as she is our baby and we wanted her to share the day.  I also did all the wedding stationary, centrepieces and decorations myself.

We had mini and large cupcakes in lemon, double chocolate and sticky toffee and a top tier cake to cut from Mama Doreens Cupcake Company who were brilliant.

In the evening, we danced the night away to our DJ – Nightshift Entertainment and my cousin’s amazing band "The Syndicates".

I loved every second of my day, but my top tip for other Brides Up North is to not stress over every tiny detail just relax and enjoy it as it goes too quick!

Congratulations Jade & James!
