Morning campers!  Let’s finish this week the way we mean to start the next: beautifully.  Today’s Real Wedding is an absolute licketty-split, with a cherry on top corker!

.

With images by CG Weddings, I love how Nisha and Duncan’s choice of soft, sugary ice cream tones and hand made decorations prettify and personalise their stunning stately home venue.  With a ten year engagement, this couple had certainly had plenty of time to plan – and taking their time paid off. 

.

Delicious!

Nisha says:  We got engaged in North Wales in June 2002 and were married on August 10th 2012 at Thornton Manor, Cheshire, which we chose for beautiful grand romantic setting.

.

We went for a pretty vintage theme with pastel ice cream tones.

I chose a dress called Eden by Ian Stuart, accessories by Glitzy Secrets and carried a bouquet of sweet avalanche roses, Cezanne roses, apricot sweet avalanche roses and amnesia roses by Earth Flowers. There was lace entwined between the flowers.

My bridesmaids wore pretty Grecian one shoulder pastel pink dresses and the groomsmen wore matching three piece suits from Moss Bros.

Our registrar is a close friend of Duncan’s family, which was lovely on the day and the service was really personal.

We had a  four tier Victoria sponge cake from Marks and Spencer. We also had two lots of cupcakes – vanilla and strawberry both with edible glitter sprinkled on top! They were also from M&S

I made all my favours, place settings, table plans and used bird cages and wired pastel roses. I also made my confetti cones, windmills and bunting to decorate the venue.

We had a close friend play the grand piano for our ceremony and another close friend did the evening as a DJ.

I can’t pick a favourite part of the day, the whole thing felt like a fairy tale and went so fast. I suppose the few moments Duncan and I had together alone during the day were lovely. There was one point we ran off into the gardens to be alone after the ceremony and it was perfect.

After the wedding we had a mini moon to Barcelona and are currently planning our honeymoon to Vietnam.

My top tip for other Brides Up North would be to take a step back and take it all in because when I was told it would go quickly by others, I didn’t believe it until the day was over. Now I look back and wish I could have slowed everything down!
