April 4th, 2014 | Julia Braime

Lee Scullion Photography at Rockliffe Hall

Who said pretty pastels couldn’t come with a huge dose of glamour?  Today’s real bride Hayley and new husband Stephen are ripping up the rule book with their soft and stylish Real Wedding at Rockliffe Hall.

Hayley says:  We got engaged at the Burj al Arab, Dubai in February 2006.  Steven proposed on Christmas day in 2005. We didn’t want a party so we celebrated our engagement with a trip Dubai to pick a ring.

We were married on 22nd September 2013 at Rockliffe Hall, Darlington.  I wanted a classy and timeless wedding and Rockliffe offers modern and old mixed together. We had our ceremony in the old arches which offered a nicer feel than just a function room. The colour scheme is quite neutral which enabled us to go for any colour scheme we wanted.

We had lilacs, lavenders, ivories and a beautiful thistle colour in our stationery. Grey suits for the gents, accented with lilac cravats and handkerchiefs to give a subtle bit of colour to blend in with the rest of the wedding. My dress and the bridesmaids were all ivory. I wanted a neutral palette with the flowers taking centre stage.

My dress was from Solutions Bridal Designer House in Orlando Florida.  The dress was antique ivory with ivory lace in a mermaid strapless fit. I opted for a very long veil trimmed in the same lace as the dress and a very glamorous belt made by Maria Elena and Manolo Blanik shoes with a beautiful vintage brooch on the front.

The hair was prepped by myself the evening before (I’m am a hairstylist) ready for my friend Carol-Anne Jenkinson who is the owner of Platinum Hair Design in Sunderland. She also did her magic on the bridal party. I had my makeup done by Amanda Bell Elite Makeup Artist.

Our flowers were by Adam Prest who is very unique in his work and knew exactly what I wanted. My bouquet consisted of a vibrant lilac roses, astrania, astilbe,clematis,snowberries and sweetpeas. They smelt beautiful. The bridesmaids had smaller versions of my flowers with a mix for the top table and centre pieces for the tables at the wedding breakfast. We also had similar mixture for the gents’ button holes and ladies’ corsages.

We had six bridesmaids from two years old to sixteen.  The younger bridesmaids wore dresses from Monsoon and the two older bridesmaids wore a dress from Coast which was from the bridal range. I think they blended nicely together.

The groomsmen wore hired suits from Gavin Scott Menswear in Washington. The grooms suit was made by Ian Bone a visiting tailor. He came to our home and measured Steven up, we picked the material and and cut of the suit. It was a very professional and friendly service from Ian and we had two more fittings before the finished result.

Our photographer was the amazing Lee Scullion. We had a lot of recommendations from people but as soon as I saw Lee’s work I knew he was the man for the job.

Our videographers were Chris and Janet Hughes for One Digital Image – a great husband and wife team. They made a one minute video summarising the day so we could share with our guests and friends which was really unique in itself and was ready to view the following morning.

Our save the dates and invitations were by Noble Fine Art. They also made our favour boxes, the menu for the tables at the wedding breakfast and the seating plan in a beautiful pearl stock paper with thistle ribbon.

Simply Bows & Chair Covers dressed our tables with a new range of lace chair coverings.

We had handmade chocolates made for the favour boxes from Robineau Patisserie in Darlington and mini bottles of whiskey for the gents.

The cake was from Celebration Cakes in Peterlee, I scaled it down from the original design in the shop. It had six tiers with all different sponges and fruit cake. It had a pearl covering with roses and lace made from sugar paste and tied in with all the little elements from the wedding.

We had Val Boyers singer and guitarist singing during our wedding breakfast and a fantastic local band (Fate) singing live on the evening of the wedding. 

Prime Entertainment provided Formula One cars which were very popular and we also hired Snaparazzi and their fabulous photo booth.  We got a book of everyone’s photos who had been in the photo booth with a message alongside the photos which is a really nice and different keep sake.

I downloaded an app called Wedpics and invited all our guests to upload all their photos.  I thought this to be better than having disposable cameras and it worked well.

Honeymoon wise, we’re are still working on that one, we want something different!

My top tip for other Brides Up North would be to enjoy and take every moment in because it goes over far too fast and don’t drink to much Champagne!

Grange Photography

.

.

Today we join Kimberley and Andrew for their beautiful Real Wedding at Hardwick Hall HotelNow what could be happening there this weekend?

.

.

Hardwick Hall Wedding Fair - Brides Up North Bridal Bonanza

.

.

Oh yes!  I had almost forgotten about that!  Not really, click here for more details and to pre-register for your VIP Bride-To-Be goody bag.

.

My bad. Forgive my shameless plug, and let’s head back to the sparkle and song of Kimberley and Andrew’s classic yet contemporary wedding, with contributions from lots of our favourite North East suppliers, and images by Grange Photography.

.

Kimberley says:  We got engaged on 2nd January 2011.  We went for a walk around Greatham Church and he got down on one knee and asked to meet him back there on our wedding day. I was totally surprised really didn’t expect it… cue lots of happy tears!

.

.

Grange Photography

.

.

We were married on 25th August 2012 at Greatham Church (of course!) with the reception at Hardwick Hall Hotel, where we fell in love with the beautiful grounds and chandeliers and the staff were so helpful.

.

We chose a colour scheme of sage green & ivory.

.

.

.

.

I chose a Ronald Joyce dress from Christabel & Keats and accessories by Jenny Packham

.

My bridesmaids wore floor length strapless chiffon dresses from Christabel & Keats and the groomsmen wore traditional tailored grey suits from Bakers in Middlesborough.

.

.

We travelled in style – in my friend’s dad beautiful Bentley and I also chose a VW camper van for my bridesmaids, which they loved.

We love music, so had a table plan based on our favourite bands.  In the evening we chose to have a live  band called The Lizards, as well as a retro photo booth from Snaparazzi Photo Booths.

.

.

.

.

We chose a vanilla sponge, fruit and chocolate praline cake with ivory fondant from Celebration Cakes.  We added a sage green ribbon and a gorgeous brooch.  Beautiful and delicious!

After the wedding we went to Thailand. Bangkok, Koh Samui & Phuket. We seriously didn’t want to come home – it’s such a beautiful country! 

.

My top tip for other Brides Up North would be to make sure your organised and well prepared so you can enjoy every moment. Don’t stress about the small things it all comes together on the day.
