Posted on: 04/12/2013

Bethan and Danny’s pretty real wedding in the heart of the North Yorkshire dales is full of sunshine and smiles. Just the ticket to get us through a wintery Wednesday morning.  With Tiffany blue accents (every girl’s favourite colour, right?) and added twinkle, this stunning setting looks even more chocolate box than usual.

Bethan says:  We got engaged on the 28th October 2011 at The Ritz, London in the restaurant and Danny and I got married on Saturday 3rd August 2013 at All Saints Church, Helmsley, North Yorkshire with the reception at The Black Swan, Helmsley.

The location of Helmsley provided an excellent mix of church and reception venue next door to one another in a picturesque Yorkshire market town which represented our background. The Black Swan has amazing food which was high on our list of priorities, and it could also offer accommodation which was important for our guests. The overall quality of the staff service and attention to detail shown by Nicola (the wedding planner) was another fey factor.

We didn’t have a theme and chose a colour scheme of Tiffany blue.

I carried a hand tied bouquet of ivory Roses, Freesia, Ammi Majus, Wax flower, Eryngium, Rosemary & Eucalyptus by The Topiary Tree. The stems were left natural, tied off with raffia.

I wore a Romantica of Devon gown in ivory and the groomsmen wore grey suits with duck egg blue cravats.  Danny also wore blue Grenson shoes! The suits were hired from Moss Bros and my gown was from a small bridal boutique called Jacqueline’s in Beverley, East Yorkshire.

My make up was by Helen Guy, and the bridesmaids’ make up by Beth Nicholls.

The three adult bridesmaids wore duck egg blue coast dresses with shoes from Next, and the flower girl wore dresses from Next and shrugs from Monsoon.

After a swift G&T, I walked from the pub, where I got ready, with my Dad round to the church. It meant we could chat and take a couple of calming deep breaths before the service!

My favourite moments were that first time I walked into the the church and saw everyone and being able to sit out in the Black Swan’s lovely gardens in the sun, enjoying the company of our family and friends with a drink.

We made confetti bags filled with dried flowers and stamped with messages to our guests. This made for the most amazingly scented confetti shower!

We chose a four tiered cake, each with a different flavour sponge: vanilla with raspberry jam, sticky toffee fudge, chocolate and black cherry, lemon and lime by Couture Cake Design.  We tried to cater for every taste!

We had homemade gooseberry jam for women’s favours and football bets for local teams for the men.

We asked that every guest chose a song and wrote it on their RSVP, this made sure there was always people dancing!  We used the venue’s recommended DJ and also had a photo booth from Booth Revolution.

After the wedding we went to Mauritius and stayed at Hotel Maritim for two weeks.

My top tip for other Brides Up North would be to keep a scrapbook of all your ideas and suppliers contacts. It will become your bible that travels with you everywhere. You are given so much information it is important to keep it written down! Also, don’t be afraid to delegate jobs close to the day. It gives an element of surprise on the day too!
