The pretty just keeps on coming this week!

.

When my good friend and Brides Up North Featured Supplier Sarah of Leafy Couture told me that she was working on the flowers of a wedding fit for a princess I couldn’t wait to see the results. 

.

Tanya and Ben’s perfect big day in pale pink at gorgeous Leeds wedding venue Harewood House didn’t disappoint.   Check out those blooms!

Tanya says:  We got engaged in a helicopter flying over Spain and were married on 16th June 2012 at Harewood House in Leeds.  We chose Harewood because of the gorgeous church and it’s beautiful gardens.  We had a marquee wedding on the Harewood estate.

We did not have a theme, we just wanted it to be pretty & elegant, and we chose a pink and white colour scheme.  As you only get to be a princess for one day, I chose a beautiful full skirted dress with layers of white tulle and crystal beading.  My bridesmaids wore lovely long pink dresses with a white sash and my chief bridesmaid wore the same but in opposite colours so that she would stand out.

I carried a bouquet of pink and white roses by Leafy Couture.

The brides party travelled to the Harewood estate in vintage wedding cars and the groom’s party travelled in a white Phantom Rolls Royce.

The amazing flowers for our wedding breakfast were by Leafy Couture and the amazing the room design was by Grace & Tailor, with chair covers and accessories by Ambience Venue Styling Leeds. 

.

I think the flowers were the touch that stood out and made it look so fabulous , especially the enormous flower balls which scented the entire marquee.

For the day time we had a string trio (Simply Strings) and in the evening we were entertained by a Michael Buble tribute called Buble Fever.  They were much much better than a tribute!  The lead singer was amazing!

I loved every minute of the day from getting ready to the last dance!  It was all amazing, but went by far too quickly!

After the wedding we were lucky enough to honeymoon in Dubai & Thailand.

My top tip for other Brides Up North would be to enjoy and take in every second of the day as you don’t realise how fast the day is over!
