We are staying in the North East this morning with this breath-taking Real Wedding at Wynyard Hall, sent to me by Brides Up North Featured Supplier Gemma of GS Studio and gorgeous real bride Carly.

.

Carly and Daniel chose a classic colour scheme for their elegant celebration and let their stunning venue, chic sense of style and tasteful details lead the way.  Stunning.

Danny proposed in Edinburgh and it is one of our favourite places to visit so we chose the city as our theme. Our table plan was set around Edinburgh- the top table was the Castle and all the other tables were our favourite landmarks in Edinburgh.  We chose a romantic colour scheme of sage green and gun metal grey.

For my wedding dress, I chose a Ronald Joyce design called Dakota from Christabel & Keats in Hartlepool and I carried a bouquet containing roses, orchids and eucalyptus by Valerie Rose.  I really let my florist go to town and just asked for seasonal flowers to tie in with our colour scheme.

My bridesmaids wore mid length strapless sage green dresses from Coast, and they looked gorgeous!

I enjoyed the whole day from beginning to end: I loved entering the church to see everyone, and saying my vows to Daniel. I also had a fantastic time dancing the night away in the evening. I didn’t want it to be over!

We chose Wynyard Hall as is a stunning place, location and excellent service.  On the day, they had some help in dressing the event from Ivory White Events who were responsible for the chair covers and table coverings and Papercraft who provided our wedding stationery.

I didn’t pay for a professional videographer, however we bought a camcorder and we asked someone to record the day. It was brilliant looking back and seeing bits that you may have missed.

Instead of a message book we had a chalk board where people could write their messages for us.  Gemma from GS Studio will then put these into an album for us.  It’s a fun and surprising alternative to a guest book and we have some great messages to read through (some funny, some wise…)

Daniel’s father sang some old songs with his guitar during our wedding breakfast, and my sister (chief bridesmaid, Stephanie) sang some modern love songs after our first dance to kick the evening party off. We also had a casino as part of our entertainment.

After the wedding we honeymooned for four nights in Las Vegas, then we flew to Cancun, Mexico for  eight nights – complete bliss!

My top tip for other Brides Up North would be just to relax and enjoy every minute of it!
