lucky in love. a yorkshire themed wedding at crathorne hall – holly & ashley

October 9th, 2018 | Alexis Forsyth

We’re stepping back into warmer climes today as we recount Holly and Ashley’s fabulous July wedding at the beautiful Crathorne Hall in Yarm.

Set in 15 acres of private grounds on the edge of the Yorkshire Moors, this is a wedding venue that’s brimming in pure elegance and romantic wedding day feels. It’s no surprise that the couple fell in love with the space, complementing the dreamy setting with their very own Yorkshire-inspired wedding. Think tractors, horses and outdoor games and you’ll start to picture the scene!

The couple, who welcomed family and friends from around the globe, kept things classic and elegant – from the pastel hued blooms to the turquoise bridesmaids’ dresses and handmade centrepieces. All understated and flawlessly perfect.

Other special touches to look out for include their horseshoe favours and messages in a bottle, which the bride and groom plan on opening in the years to come.

holly says: We got engaged on 4th August 2017. It was Ashley’s birthday and we went out for dinner at the Jet Miners in Broughton. After dinner, Ash insisted on going for a walk so we headed for Cod Beck Reservoir in Osmotherley. We walked half way around the reservoir and he challenged me to skim stones. As I was searching for a stone to skim, Ash called my name, I turned around and he was there on one knee! An absolutely perfect and unexpected proposal.

We got married on 20th July 2018. We chose this date because it was one of the very few available during the summer for the year following our engagement. We couldn’t wait to get a date booked.

We got married at Crathorne Hall. We viewed several venues and Crathorne Hall was the one that ticked all of the boxes. Gorgeous, accessible and it had rooms on-site. It was perfect.

When we started wedding planning, we were keen to have a Yorkshire theme. We both originate from down south but have always lived together in North Yorkshire. However, as things developed, so did the theme. Our wedding just became a party that represented us – tractors, horses, travel and food.

We didn’t really choose a colour scheme. We just went for natural and neutral colours that we both liked.

When I went dress shopping, I tried on a lot of dresses in many different shops. With our wedding date booked for less than a year away, there was a lot of pressure to get a dress ordered as quickly as possible so it would be ready in time. I eventually chose a dress from Victoria Robson in Northallerton. Victoria made it easy and stress-free and I knew that the dress was the one!

Ash chose his suit from Peter Posh – it was a combination of styles which suited his taste perfectly. We got the grooms’ suits from the same supplier and it was very straightforward to organise.

wed wisdom: a confetti q&a with shropshire petals

October 2nd, 2018 | Rachel Parry

ShropshirePetals.com Confetti Toss - Berries & Cherries confetti £12.50 per litre (4)

While certain wedding traditions have been thrown out with the sugared almonds, a confetti showering over the happy newlyweds is one that has stood the test of time and that continues to provide a key shot for the big day album.

A tick box for slightly further along the planning timeline, brides usually put in their confetti orders a few months ahead of the wedding when they have all details in place and so can tie in their colour choices with their chosen schemes and styling.

Though there’s more than just the colour palette to take into consideration when picking your confetti – such as quantities, how to distribute and display. As such, on the blog today we’re looking to our wonderful Sponsor, natural petal confetti growing experts Shropshire Petals, to answer some regularly asked confetti-related questions and unravel some common misconceptions in this area too.

ShropshirePetals.com Confetti Moment - Pink Lemonade confetti £12.50 per litre (6)

Do I really need to provide confetti for my guests?

shropshire petals say: These days, wedding guests rarely think to bring confetti to a wedding, especially if couples haven’t specifically asked them to on their invitations. Providing confetti yourself is generally recommended by venues and photographers to ensure there is enough for everyone to throw to get that all-important confetti photo for the album. By providing it for your guests, you can even pick the colours of confetti you’d like, plus you can make sure it’s not going to harm the environment.

Why do wedding venues only allow biodegradable confetti?

Many venues like to make sure what your guests are throwing is environmentally friendly, especially if you’re getting married somewhere with animals roaming around or a venue that is listed or part of a heritage with strict restrictions. Most venues ask for you to provide biodegradable confetti because it will disintegrate into nothing within a few days of the confetti being thrown, so no one needs to pick it up and it’s not harmful to animals or plants either. It is just like blossom falling from a tree.

ShropshirePetals.com Wonderland £12.50 per litre (2)

What’s the difference between paper confetti and natural biodegradable confetti?

Paper confetti comes in all colours, shapes and sizes, but unfortunately, it will take many years to degrade so will have to be removed after your wedding day, which usually means picking it up by hand. Paper confetti can also be harmful to plants and animals, and most venues won’t allow you to use it. Natural biodegradable confetti is made of real flower petals picked by hand to make sure they are the highest quality. Not only do they look beautiful, they are also eco-friendly, available in lots of dye-free colours, and add a high-quality feel to your wedding day.

Does it stain?

Shropshire Petals never dye any of their petals; every colour within their wide range is grown and dried in a way that preserves the natural colour, which reduces the risk of staining.

ShropshirePetals.com Confetti Moment - Kaleidoscope confetti £12.50 per litre (5)

How long will the confetti last?

As natural petal confetti is made from dried flower petals, some petals like delphiniums or cornflowers will actually last for years when stored away from heat, moisture and light. It’s only when they are subject to the elements they start to naturally degrade. Other petals like roses only keep their colour for a short time, so make sure to order your confetti within three months of your wedding or opt for the Shropshire Petals delayed delivery service. The service allows you to order your confetti months or years in advance and have it delivered three to six weeks before your wedding date.

What are the best petals for throwing?

Smaller petals like delphiniums, cornflowers, calendula and even zinnias are the best for throwing confetti. They’re small, lightweight and gently flutter down to the floor giving your photographer plenty of time to take wonderful snaps of your confetti shot. Some couples like to add rose or hydrangea petals to their throwing confetti mix, which are great for a splash of colour. However, as they are heavier, they drop quicker than the smaller petals, so make sure they only make up a quarter of your chosen confetti mix.

ShropshirePetals.com Pick and Mix of Icing Sugar, Honey'b, Frosted Blue and Blue Bird £12.50 per litre

How much confetti do I need?

It is a common misconception that all of your guests will throw confetti during your confetti moment. Shropshire Petals usually recommend providing enough petal confetti for at least half of your guests, that way there is enough confetti to get some cracking photos and you generally find the ladies throw more than the gents. One litre of petal confetti is enough for about 10-12 handfuls, so if you’ve got 100 guests, five litres of confetti would be perfect for half of them to throw. However, recently couples are opting for more confetti than they need as they like to do more than one confetti shot and get creative with their confetti too.

Are there other uses for confetti?

It’s becoming more and more popular to use your confetti in a photobooth so your guests can have fun throwing at each other, which makes for some spectacular and fun photographs of your guests. Alternatively, you can use confetti as table decorations, or even add a scattering of petals along the aisle for a romantic feature.

arriba los novios! a mexican fiesta at yorkshire wedding barn – rebecca & joshua

September 28th, 2018 | Aislinn Thompson

A Mexican Fiesta Wedding at Yorkshire Wedding Barn (c) Barnaby Aldrick (60)

We adore all the gorgeous weddings that we get to share with you here on Brides Up North, but today’s beauty has us doubly excited as the spectacular backdrop to the celebrations is a North Yorkshire venue that we’ve just added to our collection of Luxury Wedding Shows. Feast your eyes on The Yorkshire Wedding Barn, a beautifully polished rustic gem of a venue set in acres of rolling countryside with stunning ceremony and reception space, plus plentiful accommodation on site. Sound up your street? Then be sure to join us the evening of Thursday 18th October for our Stylish Wedding Show at Yorkshire Wedding Barn, open 6pm to 9pm, FREE ENTRY, when we will be showcasing this incredible venue while also welcoming a fabulous line-up of the area’s very best suppliers to help inspire and achieve your big day visions.

But for now, on with the gorgeous wedding of Rebecca and Joshua who chose Yorkshire Wedding Barn for their Mexican inspired wedding, complete with a glorious pink and orange colour scheme and a Mariachi soundtrack.

The bridesmaids are a vision in sunset-coloured dresses and the bouquets are bold and bright to evoke a taste of Mexico that packs a real punch, not to mention the vibrant flower wall in front of which Rebecca and Joshua exchanged their vows.

Rebecca wanted a ‘Cinderella’ gown and Blue by Enzoani hit the nail on the head, with a frothy, layered skirt and a crystal bodice with a sweetheart neckline (apt, as the bride and groom are childhood sweethearts!) and delicate barely-there straps. Paired with every girls’ dream shoe, the Louboutin, and a softly styled up do, Rebecca is definitely the belle of the ball!

We love the idea of each table at the wedding breakfast representing a year of Rebecca and Joshua’s courtship, complete with photos to illustrate that time in their lives. After more than ten years together, there were plenty of memories to share – and, by the looks of it, the memory bank was well and truly topped up at this joyful and colourful celebration.

rebecca says: We engaged while in Lanzarote – we booked the holiday to celebrate nine years since Josh asked me to be his girlfriend. From first being together in school, we always knew we wanted to get married to each other. After having a long-distance relationship for five years living at different universities (Newcastle and Liverpool), we finally moved in together and went through great stresses renovating our home. I had been hoping for Josh to propose but he still managed to surprise me by getting down on one knee at sunset on a windswept clifftop on the second night of our holiday.

A Mexican Fiesta Wedding at Yorkshire Wedding Barn (c) Barnaby Aldrick (43)

We got married on Friday 17th August 2018. We had always said we wanted to get married in summer 2018 and, as a teacher, I was limited to the summer holidays if we wanted to go straight on honeymoon. We fell in love with the venue as soon as we saw it and knew the compromise of getting married on a Friday instead of a Saturday was totally worth it.

The venue was Yorkshire Wedding Barn, Gilling West. We decided we’d really like a barn wedding, allowing us to bring our own style to the day, and lots of the barns we looked at were, as you can imagine, full of hay bales and hessian décor. However, the Yorkshire Wedding Barn ticked all the boxes, giving us the upmarket luxury we wanted but still providing a blank canvas for us to decorate in our own way. It was everything we ever wanted and a lot of this came down to Olivia, who organised everything perfectly. We would 100% recommend this venue to any couples wanting to have a wedding day that lasts longer than just a day. The onsite accommodation enabled us to have all of our closest friends and family with us the night before our wedding and Olivia helped arrange breakfast for us all the morning after the wedding as well.

In terms of a theme, having a DIY wedding meant we were able to keep everything really personal. We chose a catering company run by a family friend who agreed to do our absolute favourite food – Mexican – in sharing-style platters for our main course. Danny, an usher, suggested continuing the theme by booking a Mariachi band, so I used Alive Network to source an authentic Mexican Mariachi band, Mariachi King, to play us out of the ceremony and during the drinks reception. Having visited Mexico recently, we ran with this theme, incorporating cacti in the centrepieces, Mexican props for our photo booth and having tequila shots after the incredible best man/usher speech.

Colour-wise, we wanted a bright summer wedding, so we had different shades of pink and orange throughout the colour scheme. These are mine and Josh’s favourite colours and we have a lot of these in our house, so we could keep the decorations afterwards.

A Mexican Fiesta Wedding at Yorkshire Wedding Barn (c) Barnaby Aldrick (13)

When choosing my dress, I went to about four dress shops before I found the one. I knew I wanted a ‘Cinderella’ dress and thought it would probably be strapless – definitely no lace. I tried on so many different types of dress just to be sure (even full lace) but when I went to The Harrogate Wedding Lounge they could tell I knew which style I wanted and picked out lots of beautiful princess dresses. My best friend and maid of honour, Fiona, picked out a Blue by Enzoani dress that I had missed as it had straps. My mum later came into the shop and picked out the same dress so I agreed to try it on, trusting their opinions. It was perfect and there were so many tears from my bridal party when they saw it (not to mention my husband when I walked down the aisle!). After ordering my dress I lost quite a lot of weight, but The Harrogate Wedding Lounge did a great job of taking it in two dress sizes so that it fit perfectly on the day.

To accessorise, I had always dreamt of getting married in a pair of Christian Louboutin shoes so I went to Harvey Nichols, Leeds to buy my dream pair in pink glitter, so I can’t wait to wear them again.

divine dresses: the ‘power of love’ collection by caroline castigliano

September 21st, 2018 | Rachel Parry

CHRISSY

Chrissy

And so, we’re hearing directly from Caroline about her inspiration for this latest set of divine dresses and quizzing her on which are her personal favourites.

Thankfully you lucky brides-to-be won’t have to wait long to see such gowns first-hand as the collection is arriving in stockist boutiques across the country from this week. The event we have details on also provides a perfect opportunity to view Caroline’s latest designs and gather ideas for your big day to come.

CELIA

Celia

Can you start by giving us a brief overview of your gorgeous new collection?

caroline says: The collection is called the ‘Power of Love’ and features classic and timeless gowns with contemporary highlights and details that create a chic look.

Where did you draw inspiration from for this particular set of dresses?

My inspiration behind the collection was relaxed effortless style. I love creating glamorous pieces that fit perfectly and create a beautiful silhouette but at the same time appear relaxed and chic – no effort. The collection has gowns that are understated and quite simple but exude a sensual feeling. For me it all comes down to the cut and the movement – the architecture of the gown.

Can you tell us about the various styles and silhouettes of the gowns within the collection?

The ‘Power of Love’ collection features day to night looks – sleek fishtail gowns are paired with sumptuous detachable trains and delicate lace shrugs to transform the silhouette.

The essence of 50’s glamour is brought back with a modern take on the classic ball gown with clean lines making the statement.

I have also continued with the unique stretch corsets I’ve developed with bra cup corsets sculpting the figure to create a feminine and playfully sensual shape with layered laces creating depth and texture.

SAKURA

Sakura

And what about the fabrics, detailing, colourways?

The collection has been handcrafted in the UK from fluid crepe, satin faced organza and guipure lace alongside new modern laces with subtle beading creating an understated yet glamorous bridal vision. Colours are soft – ivory, blush, mocha and beautiful water colours.

 Do you have a particular favourite within the collection?

I really do love quite a few of them. It’s difficult to pick, though three standouts for me include:

Chrissy – the new scoop necked corset is stunning, modern and fresh with a power mesh layered with Chantilly lace and then moulded with exquisite beading very delicate and feminine, it comes with a soft water wash mocha silk organza skirt – I love the movement of this dress.

Madeira – all corded lace dress with a high neck and cap sleeves falling into a full circle lace skirt – it says young modern bride with a sense of classic.

Celia – full crepe dress with a strap and deep curved neck skimming the body – powerful yet understated, a chic glamorous style.

MADEIRA

Madeira

When will be new collection be landing in boutiques?

Dresses are arriving in stores from this week. You can find you closest Caroline Castigliano stockist here on our website.

We are excited to hear of the Evening of Wedding Inspiration that you are hosting at your Knightsbridge flagship boutique on 4th October. Can you tell us how the event will be beneficial to brides-to-be and why you’d encourage them to attend?

This is a fantastic opportunity for brides-to-be to see our latest collection of designer wedding gowns and meet some of the top experts in the wedding industry to get exclusive tips, ideas and inspiration! From bridal beauty to floral arrangements and honeymoons, we will have it all covered!

Where is Victoria Warehouse located?

freya says: Victoria Warehouse, a completely unique, entirely innovative event space based in Manchester. The venue, located in Trafford is just a short journey from the city centre and very easily accessible via motorway, rail and tram links.

Tell Brides Up North about the venue, what is its history and how has it changed over the years?

Built in the early 1900’s as predominantly a cotton storage facility, our warehouse buildings have stood as a symbol of this city’s industrial strength and innovation for around 100 years and careful renovations have made it a venue to capture the imagination.

What facilities does it have? 

A truly unique venue, with exposed walls, stone floors and a rustic feel, the simplicity of the space provides a blank canvas upon which you can design a spectacular setting for your day. The industrial pillars and original brickwork have been lovingly restored to reveal a striking backdrop across two rooms, that is ideal for both traditional and contemporary celebrations.

Is Victoria Warehouse licensed for civil ceremonies, and what rooms are available for the rest of the celebration?

We are licensed to hold civil ceremonies in The Bays and The Cotton Sheds.

The Bays can hold ceremonies for up to 300 guests with dining for up to 250 guests. Evening receptions can increase to 300 guests across both Bay 1 and Bay 2

The Cotton Sheds combines a raw and urban backdrop (a setting inspired by the Industrial Revolution), with the glitz and glamour of your wedding. With exposed walls, stone floors and a rustic feel, the simplicity of the space provides a blank canvas upon which you can design a spectacular setting for your day. The Cotton Sheds can hold ceremonies for up to 1,500 guests with dining for up to 900 guests meaning its the perfect venue for large multi-cultural celebrations.

What makes Victoria Warehouse a special wedding venue and sets you apart from others?

At Victoria Warehouse, we are a wedding venue like no other. Our unique, entirely innovative and industrial event space gives our couples the chance to make their day a very memorable day to remember in years to come. Not only will they be able to produce and put together a wedding of a life time, but they will have a great team and all the right people who are able to help them and go above and beyond.
