The Editorials: “Its All In The Detail”

It’s time for another online/ offline catch up folks.  The Editorials is a series I run occasionally here on the wedding blog, bringing the offline bridal freelance writing that I do on a monthly basis for numerous glossy magazines online. 

“It’s All In The Detail” was a piece penned by moi and first published in National Glossy, Wedding Magazine as a part of my Trend Alert series of columns (although it’s contents have been tweeted a few times since then)!  I hope it inspires you to accessorise wisely…

Its All In The Detail

I said:  No longer content with just the church, dress and swish wheels, trendsetting brides and grooms are thinking outside the box when it comes to the finer details of their big day.

This isn’t about following the crowd and installing a job lot of teacups, typewriters and the prerequisite bird cage table centres, but selecting unique props and decorating details that say something about the your individual tastes and interests and using them as a backdrop to your celebration.

A plan is essential. It’s all too easy to get carried away at the car boot sales and lose sight of your initial vision. This isn’t an episode of ‘Don’t Tell The Bride’. Before the great rummage begins, consider your theming carefully and arm yourself with a wish list to avoid expensive mistakes. Consider enlisting the services of a prop hire or event styling specialist who will help you to bring more ambitious ideas to life.

A Personal Touch

Whatever decorating details you add to your big day, the most effective schemes will be those that really mean something to you as a couple. Travel mad? Vintage suitcases, picture postcards and grand old maps in place of table runners can add nostalgia and romance to your celebration. Love cycling? How about a bicycle made for two?

Go Large

Some of the more popular grand schemes like festival or circus themed weddings need commitment to work. If in doubt, add bulk and colour – reams of rainbow streamers or paper pompoms en masse are a cheaper alternative to filling the room with flowers, and in some scenarios more definitely is more!

Chiconomics

Before embarking on a decorating extravaganza, remember to do your sums. Props and detailing should really be somewhere near the bottom of your budget and an optional extra rather than essential expense. Decide what’s more important to you – 100 Greek urns or your Santorini honeymoon (and I’m not judging!) and budget accordingly.

Nothing For The Sake Of It

Often, the most stylish weddings are the simplest affairs. Don’t feel pressured to over-style your day if a themed celebration just isn’t your bag. You can still add personal touches with your favourite flowers, photographs of loved ones or a carefully chosen playlist.

Real Wedding Recap Winter 2013: You & Me, Always. Jenny Packham Aspen For A Real Wedding At Priory Cottages – Charlotte & Matt

December 19th, 2013 | Julia Braime

Its holiday season here on the blog, and as the team take a break until to rest and recharge for what’s set to be the biggest and best year yet at Brides Up North HQ, we’ll be leaving you with a reduced blogging schedule so that you still get your daily dose of wedding pretty.

Usual service will recommence on 2nd January 2014,  but in the meantime watch out for recaps of our favourite Real Weddings in 2013.  Drop in every day for the very, very prettiest wedding inspiration and if you are a Brides Up North bride, to see if your Real Wedding was one of our top picks. 

Richard Wynn Davies

It’s a special one for me today as I’m sharing the wedding of two of my very best friends – Charlotte and Smithy (known formally as Matthew, Mathlete or whatever Charlotte feels like calling him).  Sod the leftover baby-weight, I was honoured to be a bridesmaid at Charlotte and Matt’s amazing, sun dapped celebration at the stunning Priory Cottages in Wetherby.

A woman who knows her own mind, Charlotte’s wedding was never going to be the same as everyone else’s.  Matt proposed on a group ski trip February 2012 and after all the excitement had died down, Charlotte looked me in the eye over a cafe au chocolat, and asked me to be her bridesmaid, adding:

“I’m going to ask all the guys to wear coloured chinos, and I want everyone in featherhead dresses and a rainbow cake”.  This was going to get interesting…

Budget summits – “Jules, persuade Matt that I need the Jimmy Choos, he listens to you” (she got them, he does) – dress dramas – a thousand “talking it over” cocktails and  a million Pinterest pins later, the wedding day arrived.  And I have to tell you, it was one of the most beautiful days that I have ever seen.  From a professional wedding blogger, that’s saying something.  The brand new Mrs Smith isn’t just a pretty face!

Charlotte says:  Matt asked me to marry him in February 2012, in an igloo in Mayerhofern whilst skiing for Jules’ 30th!  We tied the knot on 6th July 2013 at our local church, Saint Mary’s of Stainburn then reception was at Priory Cottages, Wetherby.

Originally we wanted to wed in the South of France. The venue looks like it could be in the South of France; It is gorgeous, it is a blank canvas (you don’t have to follow rules e.g what you have to drink, what the room will look like – rules which sometimes hotels impose) and you can exercise your creativity as you please. I wanted our wedding to be unique and creative, and we felt it the venue was perfect for this.

Serena, the venue manager is amazing… I think that’s the only word for her.

We asked our guests to wear loud and colourful chinos – we wanted the photos to look colourful, a little crazy and be lots of fun. In the evening I asked people to bring masks… for our own masquerade ball.  We wanted to keep to tradition but shake it up a touch.

Richard Wynn Davies

Our colour theme was colourful (!) and we went with nude/ pale pink colours, for bridesmaids. We then added bold colour in the marquee with duck egg blue and turquoise.

My flowers were bright pastel colours, as was our cake. I didn’t stick to a specific scheme as such, I just tried to use complementing colours, and colours that worked well with skin tones and together.

I fell in love with the Jenny Packham Aspen, the moment I saw it. It was the second dress I tried on.  After weeks trying on many other dresses, it confirmed that Aspen was for me!  The dress was stunning, comfy, and light, just what you need on a hot summers day.  I was very conscious of not feeling too hot, or restricted. And, I wanted to make sure I wasn’t corseted so I could eat as much delicious canapés, plated BBQ and fish & chips!

I then chose a gorgeous sparkly pair of Jimmy Choos – I worked on the basis that I can wear a fabulous pair of shoes again and again; this is better than spending a smaller amount on a pair that will only get used once. Pounds per wear! 

I wore my grandma’s grandma’s silver clasp bracelet. It was my ‘something old’ and made my outfit really special.

I then added a long veil, with crystals which was sparkly in a subtle way and I had a pearl hair slide hand made by a designer in Yorkshire.

Richard Wynn Davies

The bridesmaids wore wrap dressed by Eliza and Ethan at Pookie, Harrogate. The girls had gypsophila in their hair and wore nude shoes of their choice.

Our groomsmen wore specially commissioned bow ties, Paul Smith style in pink floral, suits from Marks & Spencer & brightly coloured braces (the brighter the better- of their choice).

We travelled by vintage Rolls Royce. My mum also had a vintage Daimler, and the bridesmaid travelled in a vintage VW Campervan.

The whole day was amazing, from getting ready, to the church, throwing confetti, the food, the dancing… I would have to say one of my favourite memories was arriving at the reception, following the church and seeing everyone in the courtyard waiting to greet us!

The driver sounded his horn, and everyone cheered and waved. The colours were spectacular, we were handed our blue cocktails, and we could hear the steel band playing.

We had a BBQ and the summer Olympics (sports day) the night before the wedding.  This was great fun and was a chance to catch up with guests ahead of the wedding. This was a great tactic!

We made our own cake- well Matt and my grandmas made the cakes! I chose a traditional fruit cake. It was decorated by a family friend, and was going to have white chocolate truffles on the side in pastel colours. However, because the weather was so hot, we had to change the truffles last minute to icing! The cake also leaned a touch!

Richard Wynn Davies

The wedding party spent hours tying 100 lanterns to the marquee roof with ribbons, and tied ribbons to the chairs. More hands make light work, and I think we did a great job!

Richard Wynn Davies

I had to ensure we had fabulous food and drink all day. This was the most important thing for me- great food.  We used MCK Catering.

We had a plated BBQ of fillet steak, lamb and prawns, with sauté potatoes for our wedding breakfast. Friends of Ham, Leeds supplied the beer. We chose a Yorkshire white wine, which was delicious- Lethenthorpe.

Later on in the evening, we wanted people to have traditional beer munchies- fish & chips with a twist. (tapas with lime and chilli batter).

Our wedding favours were bags filled with a coin, a teddy bear, a piece of string, a marble a rubber and a heart. Inside was a special message relating to the reasoning behind why the object was included e.g.:- ‘a marble, because we all seem to have lost ours’ ‘a piece of string to bind us together wherever we are in the world.’ The cost of the wedding favours went to a school in Ghana.

We honeymooned in the south of France (I secretly wish I was French!)

We stayed at the Hotel Crillon Le Brave in Provence (stunning) saw the Tour de France Stage at Mont Ventoux, visited lavender fields, went horseback riding and then drove in a sports car to the Fairmont in Monte Carlos, via St Tropez, Cannes and Antibes. We chilled out & drank cocktails and hit the Casino of course! We then took the helicopter back to Nice airport.

Fantastic trip; can we do it again?

Richard Wynn Davies

My top tip for other Brides Up North would be don’t be afraid to break the mould and try non- conventional ideas. People will raise eyebrows, but be true to yourself, do what you want to do. You’re a unique individual couple, so be creative!

Richard Wynn Davies

Congratulations Charlotte & Matt!

Lavender’s Blue: Amanda Wyatt For A Real Wedding At Priory Cottages, North Yorkshire – Amy & Luke

July 1st, 2013 | Julia Braime

.

Richard Wynn Davies

.

.

It’s right back to business with our double daily blogging schedule here at Brides Up North, and my goodness do I have some gorgeous to share with you over the next few months. 

.

Let’s start off as we mean to go on, with Amy and Luke’s stunning wedding day at Priory Cottages near Wetherby.  Amy and Luke chose rustic details, beautiful blooms and a cool colour palette (not to mention a gorgeous gown and some pretty snappy bow ties) to work with their fabulous lavender filled North Yorkshire venue.  I’m attending a celebration at Priory Cottages shortly – as a bridesmaid no less – and putting together today’s feature has made me itch with excitement for my friend’s own big day.

Amy says:  We got engaged on Easter Sunday 2012 up a mountain in Ambleside in the Lake District and were married on Easter Sunday 2013 at the beautiful Priory Cottages near Wetherby. 

.

The venue was perfect. Everything was in the same place which we wanted so we didn’t have to worry about transport and lose some time of our day travelling.  We got married in the barn, had the drinks reception downstairs and outside in the courtyard, and then had the meal and dancing in the marquee. We all (family) stayed in the cottages surrounding the venue so it was really relaxed on the day and we had seen each other in the morning of the wedding.

.

Serena who runs Priory Cottages is amazing and becomes your best friend during the wedding planning.

I chose an Amanda Wyatt dress from Mia Sposa in Cambridge. It was quite slim fitting, the bottom half was quite plain and it had lace and beading on the top and over the straps into a really pretty low back.

.

I spent ages trying to find the right colour for my bridesmaids, in the end I chose a sailor blue colour on lovely chiffon strapless dresses from Dessy.

We had a wishing tree which I know loads of people have done now but it’s such a nice way to display everyone’s good wishes on the day. We attached old vintage keys which we got from eBay to our tags and wrote a note saying ‘Please write your key to a happy marriage’.

.

Around our card crate we had photos in frames of both sets of parents and grandparents (including my late grandparents) who have all given us such a great example of marriage.

.

.

Richard Wynn Davies

.

We had the best cake, There were three of them in different sizes; a fruit cake, a Belgian chocolate cake with passion fruit filling, and a vanilla cake with chocolate ganache filling. They were covered in milk chocolate and had white chocolate pouring over the sides and little white chocolate flowers. It was made by a lovely lady called Sharon who owns the Sugar Velvet Cake Company.

Easter had to be a bit of a theme as it was Easter Sunday. We had a sweetie table, Mini Eggs as favours in mini plant pots and we had Thornton’s chocolate Easter eggs with the table names iced on them. Yum!.

We had a band called ‘The Dollars’ who we found via the ‘Alive Network’ who also provided a DJ service in between their sets. They were a bit of a risk as we had never seen them before booking but they were fab and had such a great song list that we could choose from. They learnt our first dance song ‘I Won’t Give Up’ by Jason Mraz, and it was beyond our expectations, perfect!

After the wedding we honeymooned in Thailand… Bangkok for a few days and then Koh Samui for a week!

.

.

.

.

My top tip for other Brides Up North is from experience: do not change your skin care regime or use different make-up before the wedding!

.

Congratulations Amy & Luke!

Owl Always Love You! Berry Red & A Feathered Friend For A Real Winter Wedding At Swinton Park – Rachael & Neil

May 22nd, 2013 | Julia Braime

.

Richard Wynn Davies

.

.

I normally like to get keep the weddings I feature relatively seasonal.  You know, falling leaves in the Autumn, bright skies in Spring time and all that.  But honestly, Rachael and Neil’s gorgeous winter wedding with it’s deep berry reds (and a feathered friend – the wedding blog seems awash with them this week!) was too good to save until the darker nights roll in.  And who knows if we even have seasons anymore anyway!

.

If you are looking ahead to a Christmas celebration, get ready to get excited!  With images by Brides Up North Featured Supplier Richard Wynn Davies and featuring the work of some of my favourite Yorkshire suppliers, let’s get stuck in!

.

.

Richard Wynn Davies

.

.

Rachael says:  Neil asked my to marry him on the August Bank holiday 2011, at Golden Acre Park in North Leeds, and we were married on 27th December 2012 at Swinton Park, Masham, North Yorkshire.  We both fell in love with the venue after it was recommended by a work colleague who’d been to a wedding there before. 

.

.

Richard Wynn Davies

.

.

We had a winter red theme but we also had an owl fly our rings down the aisle so to tie in with this we had the Harry Potter classical music and Harry Potter table names along with chocolate owl wedding favours.

.

.

.

.

Both Neil and I drove up to the venue to get ready in the morning, we got married at the venue so didn’t need to travel at all during the day which was perfect for our winter wedding!

.

I loved getting ready with my mum and bridesmaids, although we ended up a little rushed!

My bridesmaids wore full length chiffon dresses by Impression in claret. We got the dresses from Confetti & Lace in Leeds.  Our groomsmen wore charcoal suits hired from Yorkshire Menswear with ivory and claret cravats.

.

David Fields was my hair dresser and did an excellent job! He was a genuinely lovely man and made the entire process of getting ready really enjoyable! He even chipped in and poured the champagne for us.

.

We had a Ceilidh for our evening entertainment – Cobblers Wax. They provided great entertainment and got everybody up dancing.  We also had a magician at our drinks reception, Anthony Heaton, who our guests thought was excellent.

.

.

Richard Wynn Davies

.

.

.

.

The entire day went exactly to plan thanks to the amazing staff at Swinton Park. If we had to choose one special moment we both loved letting off Chinese lanterns outside after the ceilidh.

.

.

.

.

After the wedding we went to Dubai for new year followed by a week in Sri Lanka touring the sites and a week relaxing in the Maldives.

.

.

Richard Wynn Davies

.

.

My top tip for other Brides Up North would be to plan things well in advance to avoid last minute stress and don’t worry about anything on the day, just enjoy every minute of it!

Congratulations Rachael & Neil!

A Winter Walk: A Real Wedding In Yorkshire – Emma & Jonathan

February 6th, 2013 | Julia Braime

.

Wedding In Yorkshire by Richard Wynn-Davies

.

.

As a , I get the privilege of sharing a lot of couple’s most special of days – each different, each lovely.  Friends often ask me if I have favourites.  Of course there are styles I prefer, dresses I lust for and shoes that I sometimes even track down and buy (ahem!)…  but my very favourite celebrations are always the ones where the love shines through.

.

Cheesy, right?  Ah, so sue me. 

.

Emma and Jonathan’s Real Wedding by Brides Up North Featured Supplier Richard Wynn Davies is one of those.  Sure, they had a cute theme and a stunning venue, but I didn’t really notice all of that -  I was blinded by their smiles. 

.

Which is exactly as it should be. 

.

.

Oulton Hall Wedding by Richard Wynn Davies

.

.

Emma says:  Jonathan asked me to marry him on 25th August 2010.   It was a big surprise, champagne and sandwiches(!), at the summit of Sca Fell Pike (the highest mountain in England) as part of a trip with our closest friends to the Lake District. Very romantic indeed.

.

We tied the knot on 23rd December 2012 at St. James Parish Church, Manston, Leeds with the reception was Oulton Hall, Rothwell. 

.

.

Richard Wynn Davies

.

.

The church was my childhood church, and her parents still have strong connections there.  We fell in love with Oulton Hall from the moment we walked into the entrance. It was the perfect setting for a winter wedding.  We chose a white and silver theme, with hints of brown pine cones.

My dress was a white duchess satin gown, designed by Jonathan and I. I then made the dress with my mum, and I did the holly leaf embroidery on the top of my dress by hand which took a long (!) time. My mum handmade every one of the thirty or so buttons and button loops which made a statement down the back of my dress. The final stitches were put in the dress the night before the wedding… but it was finished – something which at times seemed an impossible goal.

.

My veil was very vintage. It was my mum’s from my parents’ wedding 28 years ago, and it was still perfectly white. It was definitely my something old, and technically borrowed!

.

My satin and lace vintage style shoes were from Wedding Belles Of Otley. And my wintery hair-clip was from Glitzy Secrets.

.

.

Peta Franklin, a small independent hairdresser in Crossgates, did my beautiful hair.

Having designed my dress, we then designed and made the bridesmaid dresses (making adaptations from a basic pattern). The bridesmaid dresses were in a silver dupion satin, with a mini-version being made for the flower-girl.

.

We hand-made all nine of the gentleman’s waistcoats, ties and pocket squares from Vogue Patterns.

To make the suits was a slight step too far (though it was considered!) and these were hired from Moss Bros.

.

.

.

.

We also hired a 1947 Albion Vintage Coach from Yesteryear Vintage Vehicles which was superb. The staff were incredibly helpful and even managed to get our less able guests onto the coach.

Every single moment was perfect from the very first moment waking up to sunshine to finally collapsing in a super-king size bed in the honeymoon suite.  Our favourite moment has to be actually getting married, and finally becoming Mr & Mrs. It was so intimate-just beautiful.

We baked 200 mince pies the day before the wedding to give to our guests after the marriage service.

We sourced pine cones from Otley Chevin and Temple Newsam Park, to hand make my pine cone bouquet. We had to wash and dry hundreds of pine cones to find the best ones. Then they were all glitter sprayed and wired to form the bouquet. It looked rather amazing if I do say so myself.

.

.

.

.

Our photographer was the amazing Richard Wynn-Davies and his lovely wife Caroline, who captured our day perfectly. 

.

.

Apart from all the sewing projects, we designed all our own table decorations, including sourcing fallen wood from a local forest, and cutting it into discs to form the table centre pieces. These then had a candle on, with a handmade, and hand collected, pine cone wreath surrounding them.

.

.

Richard Wynn Davies

.

.

Jonathan hand-drew from an OS map our table plan, which was the map of Sca Fell Pike where we got engaged. We then used the places on our walk for the table names.

.

.

.

.

We designed all our own wedding invitations, menu cards, and order’s of service using my hand drawn design.

.

.

We are anything but a traditional couple, as you may have already gathered. Instead of a DJ, we had a pub style quiz, with a side order of cheese and biscuits, a few beers and wedding cake, organised by Jonathan’s brother.

.

Even more unusual was a game of Mr and Mrs, again devised by Jonathan’s brother. Very embarrassing, but great fun for all. Thankfully almost every one of our answers matched. The Groomsmen played live music for the first dance and Jonathan joined in once his dancing duties were fulfilled.

.

.

Richard Wynn Davies

.

.

Jonathan planned a surprise honeymoon, and it did remain a surprise until we arrived outside our destination. We went to a small family run restaurant, with rooms, hotel in Sowerby, Thirsk called ‘Oswalds’ for Christmas period.

.

The service was absolutely fantastic, and we felt so special. Being greeted with champagne and strawberries, then sitting by the Christmas tree to open our wedding cards & presents was so special.  The food was out of this world, and we cannot wait to go back again soon.

.

.

Richard Wynn Davies

.

.

My top tip for other Brides Up North would be to start planning early, and be prepared to change your mind. Prioritise the things that will make your wedding day special to you, and decide the things that you can compromise on.

.

.

Richard Wynn Davies

.

.

Congratulations Emma & Jonathan!

Exclusive to Brides Up North, Richard would like to offer all my readers a huge £200 off every 2013 & 2014 wedding booked this month.  All you need to do is contact Richard to make your booking quoting Brides Up North. 

.

Richard Wynn Davies

.

Richard Wynn Davies says:  We (Richard & Caroline) shoot all of our weddings together in order to ensure nothing is missed,and we cover the whole event so we will never ask you to pretend to put your make-up on after you already have, or re-tie a cravat that has long since been tied. When it happens, we’ll be there.

.
We will produce stunning, poignant and natural images that tell the story of your wedding: all the things that you put so many months’ of thought and planning into, the spontaneous and all too fleeting moments, the things you remember, the things you may well have missed and everything in between.

.
We like to get to know you and your plans really well before the big day, so we will spend plenty of time with you in advance; from an engagement shoot to get you properly warmed up in front of the camera, to a number of meetings and a venue visit where we discuss your plans and wishes in lots of detail.

.

.

Richard Wynn Davies

.

.

Richard Wynn Davies

.

.
Once the photography is done, we offer a range of stunningly beautiful products across digital, framed and print media, including the finest bespoke albums, handmade using traditional methods here in the UK.

.
We would relish the chance to come and show you some of our work and to chat with you about how we can help to make the story of your wedding truly unforgettable. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch – we would love to hear from you.

The Wedding Blog In The News: Recent Press For Brides Up North

October 2nd, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

Wedding Magazine

.

.

As regular readers of Brides Up North will know, I also write on a freelance basis for many of our regional and national glossy bridal titles. 

.

As the little girl who eschewed dreams of becoming a ballerina or spacewoman in favour of “Editor of Vogue” when asked what she wanted to be growing up (true story – I must have been a scary child), despite the huge success of the wedding blog and events I still get a kick from seeing my work in print.

.

So here’s what Brides Up North has been up to off-line over the past few months.  All titles are still available in stores or at a wedding event near you soon. 

.

.

Wedding Magazine October November 2012

.

I love being a regular columnist for the industry bible, Wedding Magazine, and this issue it was all about that man, as I focused on glamour for your groom.  With huge thanks to Jon Swainson Photography, Peter Boyd Photography, Insight Photography, Andy Hook Photography, Phil Drinkwater Photography, Lissa Alexandra Photography, Matthew Tordoff Photography, Damian Hall Photography, India Hobson Weddings, Katy Melling Photography and David Lawson Studios for your support.

.

Wedding Magazine

.

.

I reprised my regular column in LovedUp Magazine with a focus on my newly engaged readers and their love stories.  With thanks to Joe Dodsworth Photography, Sarah Mason Photography, Richard Wynn Davies and India Hobson

.

.

.

Darlington Weddings Magazine

.

It was all about pulling on a marabou shrug and styling your winter wedding in the latest issue of Darlington

Weddings.  With thanks to Katy Melling Photography, Stan Seaton Photography and Bluelights Photography (as always for my byline image!). 

.

Darlington Weddings Magazine

.

.

If that wasn’t enough time spent hunched over my laptop I also took part in a special shoot for Fabulous Magazine (yet to hit the news-stands) and put pen to paper for a few other of my favourite magazines and newspapers – watch this space. 

.

You should also watch out for me in my hosting and judging capacity!  Sleep?  Whaddyamean?  As well as presenting the recent North Of England Wedding Awards in Yorkshire and the North East, I have also been invited to sit on the panels for The Wedding Industry Awards and The Wedding Ideas Awards 2013 (judging the Southern categories and categories independent to my sponsors only – no bias here, thank you very much!).  I can’t wait to explore the talent in our industry in more detail.

White Lace & Pearls: A Real Wedding In Yorkshire – Sian & Chris

September 26th, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

Yorkshire Wedding by Richard Wynn Davies

.

.

Today’s beautiful Real Wedding, sent to me by Brides Up North Featured Supplier and fabulous photographer Richard Wynn Davies and real bride Sian is an absolute triumph in keeping things simple.

Sian and Chris’ white lace and pearls theme is classic and classy, utterly un-dateable and ever chic. This quiet and pale palette shouts “lovely” loud!

.

Beautiful!

.

.

Sian says:  We got engaged in October 2010.  We were on holiday and Chris proposed on our last day on a special little bridge in the Lake District.

.

.

Wedding In Yorkshire by Richard Wynn Davies

.

.

We were married on 3rd August 2012 at St Paulinus Catholic Church, Dewsbury with our reception at Waterton Park Hotel, Wakefield.  We were ‘WOWED’ when we visited Waterton Park for a viewing, and the wonderful staff helped seal the deal.

I chose an ivory, fitted, lace and embroidered long gown with a train from Celebrations Bridal House in Ossett, West Yorkshire – amazing staff!  I wore the beautiful ‘I LOVE YOU’ Pandora charm, which my husband bought me as a wedding gift, attached to my garter.

.

I carried a bouquet of white orchids in a tear drop arrangement by Gillian Brown Flowers 

.

My bridesmaids wore cream lace dresses from Dorothy Perkins with ivory satin sashes and the groomsmen were in morning suits from Carl Stuart’s in Ossett.

We chose a three tiered vanilla, chocolate Nutella and lemon sponge cake with white icing, pearl icing and edible lace detail, from Krista’s Cakes. 

.

We also organised a company to provide ice creams at the reception while we were having the photographs done. The Icicle Tricycle Company were fantastic!

After the wedding we honeymooned in New York for five days and St Lucia for ten days – bliss!

My top tip for other Brides Up North would be to love it and try to remember every single minute!

And book a good photographer (we used the amazing Richard Wynn Davies). Coming home from our honeymoon to the most amazing photographs made coming back to reality easier!

Dales Delight! A Real Wedding At Bolton Castle – Hannah & Mark

August 24th, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

A Real Wedding In Yorkshire by Richard Wynn Davies

.

.

Nothing like a stunning castle wedding in the Yorkshire Dales to round off another wonderful week of wedding inspiration here at Brides Up North.  With words by real bride Hannah and a stunning set of images from Brides Up North Featured Supplier, Richard Wynn Davies, this is one for the romantics!

.

.

Bolton Castle Wedding by Richard Wynn Davies

.

.

Hannah says:  Mark asked me to marry him on 7 April 2011, on a bike ride over Threshfield moor above Grassington, and we were married on 2 June 2012 at St Oswald’s Church, Askrigg followed by a reception at Bolton Castle, Wensleydale. 

.

.

Yorkshire Dales Wedding by Richard Wynn Davies

.

.

We chose both venues for the character, the fact that it was a place that we visited often and both loved and for the gorgeous views and that there was plenty for the guests to explore on the day.  We chose a colour scheme of aubergine and ivory.

I chose a corset bodice with an a line skirt, purchased from Carlton Couture in Ripon and made by Trudy Lee.  My bridesmaids wore dresses by Jasmine, from Carlton Couture, Ripon. 

.

We spent the morning getting ready and my make up was done by Jo Leversuch of Make Up By Jo.

We don’t like fruit cake so we had a three tier sponge cake with chocolate, lemon and plain flavourings.

We ordered hand made chutney and jams from local producer Raydale Preserves for our favours.

We had a ceilidh band in the evening and all the guests were taught various traditional dances.

.

After the wedding we honeymooned in Thailand for 16 days travelling to Bangkok, Chaing Mai and Koh Phangnan. 

.

.

.

.

My top tip for other Brides Up North would be to relax on the day and enjoy the getting ready process. There’s no point stressing over last minute things at that stage, just enjoy it!

.

.

.

Congratulations Hannah & Mark!
