A Yorkshire Wedding by JB Creatives

I thought I’d start Friday off with a cheerful September wedding, packed with smiles, sunflowers and personal touches.  Just perfect!  Many thanks to the fabulous Jane at JB Creatives and today’s reader and real bride Liz for making the countdown to the weekend that little bit more lovely. 

.

Liz says:  We got engaged in April 2009 at the gorgeous Swinton Castle where we’d spent our first weekend away together. Andrew had arranged it all so that I thought I was going to a work event there, then when I got there he was there on one knee!

We were married on September 24th 2011, at St Mary’s Church in the grounds of Fountains Abbey & Studley Royal with the reception at the lovely Crown Inn in Roecliffe

.

St Mary’s is a very special church as it’s on the estate where I have worked as a wedding co-ordinator for the last four years, and is a redundant church which requires a special licence to be granted in order to marry there.

We chose a relaxed and a little rustic theme with bunting and lots of cakes, and with purple as the main colour to tie everything together.

I chose a lovely floaty simple chiffon and beaded dress from Award Winning Confetti & Lace Harrogate. I asked a local dressmaker to make a shoulder strap which was added on the day.

.

My bridesmaids wore purple dresses from LK Bennett and the ushers wore grey suits from Yorkshire Menswear in Harrogate.

I carried a hand tied bouquet of sunflowers, daisies and gerberas by the fabulous Greenhouse Florists in Ripon, and pretty much everything else was done by friends and family.

We hired a string quartet for the church and a live band for the reception which got everybody up and dancing.

My sister in law did a fab surprise cake table with homemade cupcakes, scones and cakes which went down very well with us and the guests. I made biscuits for the favours and a friend made some great vintage style bunting for the reception venue.

It was amazing having all our friends and family around us to be part of our special day, including our gorgeous daughter Caitlin.

After the wedding we honeymooned in romantic Venice and Lake Garda.

My top tip for other Brides Up North would be try not to stress about the little details, if you stay organised, it will all come together in the end!
