Posted on: 17/06/2014

Today we join Stacy and David for their relaxed and pretty Real Wedding at Brides Up North Featured Supplier venue Woodhill Hall.  The beautiful scenery and fab furnishings at this Northumberland home really do create a ready made backdrop, so Stacy sensibly kept her own decor light and natural to create a gorgeous day to say “I do”.

Stacy says: David asked me to marry him on 3rd February 2013, in Hamsterly Forest in the trees.  We were married on Easter weekend (so that we could extend the celebration by another day!) in spring 2014, at Woodhill Hall, Northumberland.

We loved Woodhill Hall because it was very laid back with amazing scenery and was dog friendly.  We wanted everyone to feel relaxed and have a good time and not feel too formal.

The couple who own the venue are willing to accommodate anything you want to make your day special. It’s a lovely relaxed atmosphere and such a special place.

We chose a natural garden theme of whites and greens. We prefer understated beauty.

I didn’t want a big over the top dress but something simple and pretty. I chose a Mori Lee wedding gown from Wedding Essentials in Newcastle. It was strapless with a sheer lace panel over the skirt and a small train. I didn’t wear a veil and instead twisted flowers into my hair.

David and his groomsmen wore morning suits from Greenwoods and the bridesmaids wore green and white strapless calf length dresses.

My bouquet was made by a family friend and was artificial.  It was a combination of roses and woodland flowers including thistle so it looked like it was gathered from the garden.

We chose Leighton Bainbridge Photography because he has an amazing talent at capturing the beauty of a picture without it being staged. We love his pictures.

For our favours we bought some seeds online which were our table name cards but opened up as wild flower seeds for guests to take home to plant in the garden.

Our cake was made by the my uncle and it was a three tier white iced cake with two layers of fruit and decorated with white roses and greenery.

We had a roast lunch and guests had a choice of lamb or beef. The evening food was a Mexican buffet. We paid a corkage fee and supplied white and rose wine to all of our guests and a jug of Pimms with fruit and soft drinks.

After the speeches and cutting the cake, we had a local DJ who entertained us all evening and we hired a company from Liverpool who provided a photo booth and a star lit dance floor.

I planned a surprise honeymoon to Morocco and told David about it on the morning of the wedding.

My top tip for other Brides Up North would be to be very organised. Make lists so not only you but also your bridesmaids and ushers know the basics too because it is impossible to try and do everything!
