Village People. Tiffany Blue For A Pretty Real Wedding At The Black Swan, Helmsley – Bethan & Danny

December 4th, 2013 | Julia Braime

Walker & Walker Photography

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. 

Walker & Walker Photography

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. 

Walker & Walker Photography

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!

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!

Walker & Walker Photography

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

Walker & Walker Photography

Walker & Walker Photography

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.

Walker & Walker Photography

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

Walker & Walker Photography

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!

Walker & Walker Photography

 

Congratulations Bethan and Danny!

If you came along to help to bring our Twitter feed to life this Halloween, then another huge thank you for your support.  Unfortunately, this is how I choose to repay you.

Did you consume enough candy/ cocktails* or disguise yourself adequately enough to feel confident stepping into our photo booth courtesy of the fabulous Booth Revolution?  If you think you did, you might like to look away now.  It isn’t very pretty…

Trick or Treat?! There are some absolute crackers here.

Frightfully Fabulous. Did You Get Spooky At #WeddingHourLive? A First Look

October 28th, 2013 | Julia Braime

Peter Boyd Photography for #WeddingHourLive

My recovery rate isn’t what it used to be.  It’s taken me the best part of a week to shake off the fug following a frightfully good night at our first ever #WeddingHourLive. 

Peter Boyd Photography for #WeddingHourLive

Lisa of The Wedding Affair and I have been wanting to collaborate for a while – and we wanted to do it in style – so we decided to get together to bring the wedding industry’s Twitter feed to life for a spooky Halloween soiree.  This was an entirely not for profit event, and our way of saying thank you to an industry that is so supportive of our businesses.  Plus, being in the events game, we like to show off what we can do! 

And what a night it was

Peter Boyd Photography for #WeddingHourLive

Whenever you throw a party, there’s always that 12 year old girl inside shrieking “Oh my god!  Will anyone come?!  Does anyone like me?!  Will there be enough cake?!  Will people dress up?!”. The party bags were packed, but we needed a crowd. 

We weren’t disappointed!

They came.  They costumed (beyond all expectation).  They cocktailed.  They casino’ed.  And they teared up the dance floor. 

Peter Boyd Photography for #WeddingHourLive

We really do love you all.  A huge thank you for your amazing support and making this event so much fun.  Thanks-not-so-much for the week long hangover. 

Peter Boyd Photography for #WeddingHourLive

If you follow this blog on Facebook and Twitter (ahem!) then you’ll have already seen some candid and photo booth shots from the night (thank you Peter and Susie at Booth Revolution), but here’s a first look at what went down from behind our roving photographers’ lenses.  There’s more to come… no one’s safe (!)… but here are a few of our favourites so far!

Sequins & Spires! Jenny Packham For A Real Wedding At Allerton Castle – Olivia & Phil

September 30th, 2013 | Julia Braime

Olivia Brabbs Photography

So I know I might harp on just a little about how brilliant our Brides Up North events are, but it’s so true!  Yesterday at Hardwick Hall Hotel was an absolute knockout!  A fabulous day, so much wedding inspiration and talent in one – massive – ballroom and so much fun.  Thank you to this stunning venue for looking after us so well and to all my wonderful exhibitors, readers (hello you!), brides and grooms for making it such a great way to spend our Sunday. 

After a hot bath and a bit of Downton Abbey I was tucked up in bed in readiness for another busy week ahead, and what a week it is!  New projects galore, lots of meetings, a bit of party planning (have you got your ticket yet?) and topped off with our Brides Up North Luxury Wedding Exhibition at The Mansion, Leeds.  Yorkshire… it’s your turn!  If you’d like to come along, click here to pre-register as a VIP Bride To Be

That’s all behind the scenes though, so it’s on with the wedding gorgeous on these pretty pages.  Today we join the beautiful Olivia and her new husband Phil for their stunning Real Wedding at one of our other amazing venues, Allerton Castle.

With images by Olivia Brabbs Photography.

Olivia Brabbs Photography

Olivia says: I wouldn’t say I was your average bride. Unlike most girls I’ve never dreamt of the perfect day, where it would be and what I’d wear. In fact it wasn’t until Phil proposed on my birthday in Vegas last year (2011) that the idea of a wedding had even crossed my mind. I remember looking at the ring, then at him, and saying ‘so does this mean we’re getting married then?’

“If you like!” he said.

And so it began.

Olivia Brabbs Photography

Olivia Brabbs Photography

By the time we arrived back to my parents’ house in Leeds, my mum had practically picked the venue and spent hours scouring the internet for The Dress.

Phil had asked for their permission before we went away so mum had enjoyed a three-week head start.

Her enthusiasm for wedding research certainly made our lives a lot easier and meant we were free to head back down to London and back to work, safe in the knowledge she was going to be our wedding planning rock.

Olivia Brabbs Photography

Allerton Castle in Knaresborough, North Yorkshire, was the only venue we looked at and from the moment we stepped through its gothic doors, we knew it was the one. The place is oozing with character and from a decoration point of view, made things very easy.

Olivia Brabbs Photography

Our fabulous florist, Joanna McCrea from Twisted Willow Floristry in Ripon, did an amazing job enhancing the gothic feel. She used tall candelabras with gypsophila, wax flower and trailing ivy, lots of candles to create a warm feel and fairy lights for that dramatic staircase.

Olivia Brabbs Photography

Olivia Brabbs Photography

Our bouquets absolutely blew me away when I saw them. Joanna used the same flowers as above but with the addition of astilbe, which looked very vintage and suited the feel of the day perfectly.

Olivia Brabbs Photography

The dress was Eden in platinum by Jenny Packham and I wore the Acacia 1 headpiece and matching cuff. I’d tried on every style of dress you can imagine as I had no idea what I wanted. But when I saw the shop assistant walking towards me carrying Eden, I knew it was the one. I felt fabulous and very privileged to wear it.

My shoes were by Christian Louboutin and went perfectly with the dress. Again, I had no idea what I wanted but when I saw them I fell in love.

My bridesmaid Amy wore a Twobirds gown in ‘putty’, which looked beautiful against the silver and bronze in my dress. Her shoes and brooch at the front of her dress were also by Jenny Packham.

Olivia Brabbs Photography

We did our own make-up and hair which was definitely the right decision. We had a lovely morning, slowly getting ready and having breakfast, and of course lots of champagne! It meant we were totally relaxed when we walked down the aisle.

Olivia Brabbs Photography

Olivia Brabbs Photography

Phil went for a Reiss three-piece suit with a matching tie and pocket square. He wore Paul Smith shoes and socks and heart-shaped cufflinks which I bought him as a wedding present.

A large ornate elephant statue, a symbol of good luck, stands in front of the fireplace at the castle and when we saw it, we knew we had to use it in our stationery.  None of us are particularly traditional so we went for a laid back, quirky style with gothic fonts and the elephant as the focal point.  It meant that when our guests arrived at the venue, everything came together.  All our stationery was designed by the creative genius that is Bev Speight – my cousin’s wife.

Olivia Brabbs Photography

Olivia Brabbs Photography

Olivia is an extremely talented photographer and it was a joy to have her documenting our wedding.

She captured the essence of the day, the friendships and the fun, without anyone even noticing she was there. I didn’t want her to leave!

In fact it was the same with all our guests and we literally had to be peeled out of the castle. I think that is testament to our wonderful family and friends who helped make our wedding the best day of our lives.

Entertainment also came courtesy of Booth Revolution which helped capture the fun atmosphere of the evening when our photographer finished for the day.

We wanted our big day to be personal to us, so we had a lot of little touches including personalised thimbles – Royal Wedding style – and hangover kits which included paracetamol, alka seltzer, sachets of coffee and sugar, retro sweets and a miniature bottle of vodka.

A few guests said it actually saved their lives the morning after!

Olivia Brabbs Photography

Olivia Brabbs Photography

We both adore cheese so a cheese wedding cake was the obvious choice. The tasty rounds came courtesy of the lovely girls at The Cheeseboard in Harrogate. All our food was locally sourced so we made sure the cake was too. It sat on part of a solid oak tree trunk which my dad had skilfully chopped up a few weeks prior.

Olivia Brabbs Photography

The feel of the day was very relaxed but it soon got raucous in the evening when our band, the brilliant Northern Vinyl from Leeds, and Phil’s old school friend and Ministry of Sound DJ James Lansdown, who travelled up from London, created the perfect party/rave atmosphere.

The dance floor was packed all night and saw guests go wild with blow-up guitars, including my 90-year old grandma!

Our first dance was Florence and the Machine, “You Got the Love”. The song means a lot to us because Florence sang it at one of the first festivals we went to together. It was quickly followed by Calvin Harris and “Vegas” which is another one of our favourites.

Olivia Brabbs Photography

My advice to other Brides Up North would be to stay calm even when things go wrong, because in the grand scheme of things, the relationship between you and your future husband means more than anything. Your wedding is just one day to celebrate that.

And to party of course!

Olivia Brabbs Photography

Congratulations Olivia & Phil!

BEWARE! Did YOU Have A Booth Revolution At Allerton Castle?

February 23rd, 2013 | Julia Braime

Booth Revolution

.

Tell me it isn’t just a week since the fabulous Brides Up North Luxury Wedding Exhibition at Allerton Castle?  The mind boggles! After every one of our events it’s right on to planning the next here at Brides Up North HQ, with barely enough time to pause for breath or a quick cuppa (ok, so we do manage to fit in a few cuppas)!

.

Right now, we are all about tomorrow’s huge North East Bridal Bonanza at Hardwick Hall Hotel – the team are busy filling our VIP Bride-To-Be Goody Bags as we speak, actually – have you registered for yours yet?

But, that’s tomorrow’s fun.  For now, let’s grab one of those cuppas, put our feet up and have a laugh at the poor unsuspecting souls who strayed into the funky and fabulous Booth Revolution photo booth at last week’s event. 

.

Were YOU caught on camera?! My readers are the best…

.

See you tomorrow!
