This afternoon we join Brides Up North reader Emma and her new husband Barry for their vintage inspired Real Wedding in the North West.  Pretty and pink with lots of special little details, this is definitely one for the girly girls…

Emma says:  We got engaged at Leeds Festival on August Bank Holiday Weekend 2011, and we were married on Friday 2nd August 2013 at St. Thomas’ Church, Thurnham, Lancaster. It is our local church beautiful, quaint and we fell in love with it as soon as we saw it.

Our reception was at the Preston Marriott.  It has amazing grounds and a self contained room with a huge dance floor plus a quieter area to relax in. The staff were incredible and treated our wedding party like VIPs for the weekend.

We based the day largely on a Vintage Romance theme. I love all things vintage.  I chose a colour scheme of cream, rose pink and silver grey.

I wore a strapless Justin Alexander gown from Butterfly Bridal, Lancaster. It had a very detailed bodice and a very full skirt, with gorgeous zip detailing to the back.

My bridesmaids wore full length Dessy dresses in Rose. They were one shoulder, Grecian style, again from Butterfly Bridal, Lancaster.  The men’s suits from Greenwoods, Lancaster. We opted for mid-grey morning suits, with silver waistcoats and pink cravats.

I carried a hand tied bouquet of vintage pink Sweet Avalanche Roses complimented with scented Lily of the Valley, Gypsophila, Cream Freesia and interspersed with chalky green Eucalyptus Cinnerea.  The stems were bound with ivory satin ribbon and secured with pearl pins.  Our flowers were by Abi’s Arrangements in Lancaster.

The room was dressed by Renaissance Events, Dewhurst’s Balloons and Queen Of Hearts Vintage Crockery Hire.  We also hired a candy cart for our guests from Standen’s Special Occasions. 

We named our tables after all the bands at Leeds Festival from the weekend that we got engaged.

We chose a very simple ivory striped cake with four tiers in total. It was decorated with ivory flowers on top, each tier had a layer of pearls around it. We opted for two fruit and two sponge and buttercream tiers.

My favourite part of the day was walking into the wedding breakfast room to a huge round of applause from all our friends and family. It took our breath away!

For our honeymoon we sailed aboard the Thomson Majesty around the Adriatic for a week.

My top tip for other Brides Up North would be to sit back, relax and take it all in. It goes so quickly!

Congratulations Emma & Barry!
