Sometimes, you just need a bit of old fashioned romance. Lois and Matt’s beautiful Real Wedding in Sheffield has got that covered this Thursday afternoon. Just blissful.

Lois says: We got engaged at Parade Gardens in Bath, Matt surprised me with a weekend away in July 2011, and we were married on 17th May 2013 at Whitley Hall in Sheffield.
We chose Whitley Hall because we loved the setting and the character of the venue. We chose a lace theme with a colour palette of dusty pink and ivory.
We got the bridesmaids’ dresses from The Bridal Boutique where I got my dress from they were Jasmine B2 chiffon with lace detail in a dusky pink. My flower girl’s dress was brand new from eBay and I added a sash and sewed an artificial flower from Country Baskets onto it to tie it in with the rest of our theme.
I own and run a franchise of Ambience Venue Styling (Huddersfield and Oldham) so we had the opportunity to use my own stock to dress the venue including the chair covers, sashes and the aisle runner. We ended making a lot ourselves, we collected jars and decorated them and my mum made the pompoms to hang outside. There were lots of candles throughout and the centre pieces were a mixture of tall and low level arrangements as the ceiling was too low to have a tall centre piece on each table and this added interest.
We loved every minute of our wedding day but if we had to pick our favourite moment would be the ceremony.
Bluelights Photography was the only on-the-day supplier we used and we can’t recommend Adele enough she has been fantastic we are so pleased with our photographs!
I decided to do the flowers myself as I love being creative and it seemed a shame to pay someone when I could do it myself, although I must admit it was hard work and I probably missed out on the usual bridal pampering and chilling out the day before.
In the evening we had a band called 16 days, they also stayed on to do a DJ set. Their music is so varied it ranges from Reggae to Indie and funk. They were brilliant, people of all ages loved it
We had fruit cake, its Matt’s favourite. My cousins Laura and Charlotte made it, they have being going to an evening cake class for the past year or so and this was their first wedding cake!
After the wedding we honeymooned in Mykonos, Greece for seven days and then we spent four days in London.
My top tip for other Brides Up North would be don’t take on too much on the lead up to the wedding, I did and was ill the week of the wedding as I was ‘run down’ so I couldn’t enjoy the pampering I had planned.
Congratulations Lois & Matt!
