This wedding blog instalment comes to you a little later than planned as reliable wi-fi on the Greek Islands can be a challenge! If you missed yesterday’s post, I am taking a little (and much needed) sojourn with the hubby to recharge and make up for all those evenings recently that I’ve left him alone as I hunch over my laptop!  Although my 30th (gah!) birthday was back in February, this trip was my birthday present, and I am enjoying every moment. 

.

I wouldn’t leave you without your daily double dose of wedding gorgeousness though, and today’s Real Wedding sent to me by fab photographer Richard Wynn Davies and real bride Lyndsay is no exception.

.

The love really shines through in Lyndsay and Matt’s wedding photographs and I love that stunning bride Lyndsay totally rocked her glasses too! Enjoy it.

Lyndsay says:  Matt proposed in Jamaica in March 2011 and we were married on Friday 16th March 2012 at Hazlewood Castle in Tadcaster, North Yorkshire.

We chose Hazelwood Castle as my dad was born there during the 1940s when it was a maternity hospital.  It is also a stunning venue and surroundings to provide brilliant photographs.

We opted for a colour scheme of teal, silver & ivory.

I wore two wedding dresses – both from Berketex Brides in Leeds.  The first was Cara by Emily Fox and the second Honey by Rosetta Niccolini.  I carried white and cream flowers in a small trailing bouquet by Firenza Floral Design

We loved the whole day, but the blessing had a personal touch as it was performed by my Uncle who is a catholic priest.

As a gift for Matt, I wrote to both the Lancashire and England cricket teams, and Liverpool football for congratulations messages.  They all wrote back!

In the evening we chose Audio Events for the DJ and our friend’s band Rook and the Ravens for the live music.  They were brilliant.

After the wedding, we honeymooned at Heritage Awali Golf and Spa, Bel Ombre, Mauritius.

My top tip for other Brides Up North would be don’t panic that something with go wrong – it probably won’t!

Enjoy every part of the day!
