Mr & Mrs Perfect. A Real Wedding In Manchester – Gemma & Nigel

February 4th, 2014 | Julia Braime

Stella Photography

Yes, that really is today’s bride and groom’s married name – Mr & Mrs Perfect.  Don’t you love it.  No pressure or anything..!  Anyway, it turns out that their gorgeous Real Wedding in Manchester was pretty much that – a chic and simple and prettily perfect winter city wedding.

Gemma says:  Nigel asked me to marry him on 1st December 2012, on Llanmadoc beach in Wales, on a weekend away. It was a beautiful isolated beach on a lovely crisp winter’s day.

We were married on 23rd November 2013.  We had the ceremony at Manchester Town Hall, and the reception at The Place Apartment Hotel, a converted cotton warehouse in central Manchester.

We wanted everything to be indoors, firstly because it is Manchester, so it was more than likely to rain, and secondly because of the time of year. We had looked at country locations, but decided that as we had so many guests coming not only from over this country but also from abroad, the city centre would be best for travel from the airport, train or the motorway. Also, we live very close to the city centre, so going in to see our wedding coordinator at the venue, and meeting local suppliers was so much easier than if we had picked somewhere far away.  Manchester Town Hall is a stunning old building, with high stained glass windows so we felt it added to the occasion. The Place is beautifully restored, maintaining many original features such as red brick walls and steel columns.

Our theme was simplicity.  The venue for the reception made it seem urban chic and we also teamed this with a vintage feel with the flower displays – very natural, in small glass bottles and jars – and hand-tied favours with luggage tag labels.

The wedding was mainly white and ivory, however my husband had decided that he wanted to wear his kilt, in the family tradition, so I picked a dark forest green for the bridesmaids to match this.

My dress was from The Staite Rooms in Huddersfield. It was a Maggie Sottero gown (Geneva), fitted to the waist and slightly over the hips, and had a long train. The top layer was a delicate lace with floral adornments, and a a band in light mocha under the bust, which made it look quite different to any I had seen before. I loved my long train!  The dress was strapless which I didn’t think I would like when trying on dresses, but it fit beautifully with a lace-up back.

My bridesmaids wore full length forest green chiffon dresses from Fairytale Occasions in Bury. The groomsmen wore kilts in a similar style to my husband, our fathers wore black suits to match the kilt jackets. These were all hired from Slaters.

I had a fantastic hair & makeup artist come to make up myself, my bridesmaids, my mother and mother-in-law at the hotel, Jodie Smith, also based in Manchester.

Country Rose, City Chic. A Leap Year Proposal & Last Minute Plans For A Pretty Real Wedding In Leeds – Lucy & Darren

November 5th, 2013 | Julia Braime

Lissa Alexandra Photography

This afternoon we are fusing country wedding pretty with city glamour as we join Lucy and Darren for their gorgeous Leeds City Centre Real Wedding.  After a major setback (read on) which derailed Lucy’s original plans, this beautiful bride came back fighting to create a celebration that was even better than she’d imagined.

Lucy says:  We got engaged on 29th February 2012 – it was the leap year so I took the opportunity to propose to him!

I proposed at home, he came home from work to a candlelit bath, the table was set with candles, I had prepared a three course home cooked meal – I bought his wedding ring, put it in his desert bowl & popped the question!

We got married on 29th June 2013 at Leeds Town Hall then the Malmaison Hotel

We originally booked Anthony’s Piazza Restaurant in the Corn Exchange, but on Friday 21st June (one week before the wedding) they sent me an email to say they were closing the business & could no longer do our ‘event’! So, in a mad panic a very distressed bride to be went in to the Malmaison Hotel in Leeds who said very calmly not to panic and they would sort everything out for me! They took a copy of the menu that Anthony’s were going to produce for us and copied it. They upgraded me to the Suite and the staff were so helpful, I didn’t feel like my wedding collapsed the week before. The wedding ended up being 100% better than what was originally booked.

The wedding had an English rose, vintage, romantic feel with a lilac colour base.

My tea length dress was by Sottero & Midgley at The Bridal Boutique in Guiseley.  The guys wore indigo blue three piece suits from M&S with lilac ties.

We bought everyone a Lotto ticket for a favour, held in a brown card holder with a Good Luck verse, tied with brown string and dotted vintage disposable cameras around the tables for our guests to take some snaps.

Our cutting cake was Victoria Sponge and we also had cupcakes in Cherry Bakewell, Lemon Meringue & Chocolate.

Love Is All You Need! A Flirty Frock For A Real Wedding At Liverpool’s Hard Day’s Night Hotel – Angela & Christopher

June 11th, 2013 | Julia Braime

.

Karen Julia

.

.

It seems like the blog’s gone all musical all of a sudden!  Last week I featured a beautiful celebration (click here to catch up if you missed it) inspired by the music of Bob Dylan, and today we join Angela and Christopher in Liverpool for their big day with more than a hint of influence from the City’s fab four.

.

With swishy skirts, a quirky and colourful venue and a seriously wow wedding cake this fun filled Real Wedding with images by Karen Julia certainly hits all the right notes.

.

Ok.  Enough of the terrible musical puns, let’s take it away… a one, two, three…

Angela says:  Chris asked me to marry him on Christmas day in 2011.  He wrapped up four gifts – something old (a vintage brooch) something new (a handbag) something borrowed (his favourite book) and something blue (Armani perfume), then got down on one knee with my beautiful ring!

.

We tied the knot on 27th April 2013 at The Hard Day’s Night Hotel in Liverpool (the Beatles themed hotel).  We had stayed there on my 30th birthday and loved it, and wanted a quirky venue that our guests would remember.

We opted for a colour scheme of midnight blue and ivory as the venue is very colourful.  I chose a tea length Justin Alexander dress  and a birdcage headpiece from Cheshire Brides in Frodsham.  The service at the boutique was excellent and they really went above and beyond.

I carried a bouquet of ivory roses, freesias and carnations with diamante sparkle by Dovedale Florist in Mossley Hill, Liverpool.

We still haven’t been on our honeymoon!  We are going to book something special once all the excitement has calmed down.

Bobby Dazzler: A Chic Manchester Real Wedding Inspired By The Music Of Bob Dylan – Faye & Mark

June 6th, 2013 | Julia Braime

.

Sam Clayton Photography

.

.

The Real Wedding gorgeous just keeps coming today.  I figured one chic celebration deserves another, so this afternoon we join Faye and Mark for their stunning Manchester city centre wedding with delectable detailing and melodic undertones running throughout.

.

Sent to me by the couple and Hayley at Weddings Vintage, featuring some of my very favourite North West suppliers and with images by Sam Clayton Photography, this one is really rather lovely…

.

Be inspired!

.

.

Sam Clayton Photography

.

Faye says:  Mark & I met in 1999 whilst working in a restaurant in Manchester called Simply Heathcotes. Our story is a lengthy one characterised by a couple of break ups, chance meetings at festivals and reunions initiated by my regular winning of competitions on our favourite radio station 6music! Manchester & music were always going to feature in our wedding day.

.

.

Sam Clayton Photography

.

.

Mark planned a very secret (and typically extravagant!) proposal which involved for unexpected days off work for me, a surprise trip to Rome and a Bob Dylan concert in November 2011. Mark proposed on the morning of the concert before a trip to the Vatican. It was a trip to remember and frankly, quite a lot to take in! Mark had commissioned a sapphire engagement ring from RA Designer Jewellery at Manchester Arts and Crafts Centre which was beautiful and a perfect fit.

.

.

Sam Clayton Photography

.

.

We got married on 27th December 2012. 

.

I am very much a Manchester girl with Mark & I enjoying living in the City Centre since 2006. We were only ever going to have a Manchester City Centre Wedding!

.

We chose to get married at St Ann’s Church. St Ann’s is a church we visit often and my mum & I have become particularly fond of it over the years. It was 300 years old in 2012 and for the occasion, it had some restorative building work. It has never looked so lovely.

.

It offered the traditional service Mark was looking for with a City Centre location and a lovely Rector, Nigel Ashworth who made us feel very welcome and delivered a very personal address on the wedding day. You would never guess it was in Manchester from looking at the pictures. It looks distinctly Roman which was very apt!

.

We held the reception at the Great John Street Hotel. Living in Manchester City Centre, and specifically Castlefield we have spent a lot of time there with friends and close family. We both knew that it was where we wanted to hold the reception straight away.

,

We wanted an intimate, easy and laidback occasion and the Great John Street suited this perfectly whilst offering a “home from home” feel due to it being somewhere we had spent so much time at!

.

.

It was really important for us to reflect our relationship in the day itself.

.

The constant thread through our relationship over the last 14 years has been our love of music and specifically, Bob Dylan. Once we decided on that everything started to fall into place –we were able to use some of our most loved lyrics in the invitation and reflect some of our favourite songs & albums in the day.

Thankfully we found Hayley from Weddings Vintage who was able to bring it all to life! We loved working on this with her. She was absolutely brilliant and made everything so easy.

.

We were also able to put our photographs from our pre-wedding shoot to good use to achieve what we have always wanted – our own albums!

.

.

Sam Clayton Photography

.

.

.

I wore a Cymbeline dress called Farandole which I bought from The Wedding Shop in Alderley Edge.

.

I have to admit that I found dress shopping quite stressful. I was so relieved when I found a dress that I could actually see myself wearing and being comfortable in. It was really important for me to feel like myself and to look like me, albeit a more glamorous version!

.

My headpiece was by Hermione Harbutt. I contacted her after seeing her work in a Bridal magazine. I absolutely loved it! It was perfect and suited my hairstyle really well.

.

My shoes were Tilly by Rachel Simpson. They allowed me just enough of a heel to be the same height as Mark and were super comfy – both very important considerations!

.

My mum Joyce & bridesmaid, Angela were both an amazing support to me. I will always treasure the memories of our “post dress shopping” coffees! Nobody tells you this but the time you get to spend with your loved ones in the build-up to your wedding really is special.

.

One of my favourite pictures is of Angela and my mum laughing over dinner on the day. Angela has definitely become Daughter No.2 in the past year! The time together in the run up also brings with it lots of opportunities for tears; I think we must have got all the emotion out there early! We still congratulate each other on how we held it together on the morning of the wedding.

.

.

Sam Clayton Photography

.

.

Sam Clayton Photography

.

.

We chose a True Bride bridesmaid dress from Blush Bridal in Whitehaven. Rachael & Susan were so helpful and they have a really beautiful shop. Angela looked amazing!

.

Mark & his Best Man Alex chose suits by Kenneth Cole from House of Fraser with shirts by Duchamp and silk ties by Canali. They both looked really sharp and handsome.

.

Sam Clayton was our photographer. We are so pleased with the pictures which capture the day perfectly. Sam immediately “got” us and she was lovely to work with. She made everyone at ease. She is so likeable and everyone warmed to her. Sam was introduced to us by the photographer we had originally booked but who had cancelled. It was fate and meant to be; Sam was brilliant!

.

Manchester looks amazing in the photographs.

.

This means so much as we have recently relocated to Cambridge – it’s lovely to look back on our home town looking so great. We can’t wait to put them up in our new house.

.

.

Sam Clayton Photography

.

.

.

.

.

.

We chose to travel in a Morris Minor called Daisy on the day. Mark’s first car was a Morris Minor and his dad has always owned classic cars. It was the natural choice!

.

Geraldine and Ken from Regent Classics were a joy and pleasure to work with and Daisy was lovely. Mark & I loved our journey from church to Great John Street Hotel with Ken through the busy streets of Manchester!

Mark & I met Pete Churchman when he was playing at a restaurant in the Northern Quarter in Manchester. We knew that his style would suit the day and Pete (with a little help from Mark!) did a great job of getting everyone on the dance floor later in the evening.

Sian at The Flower Lounge in Didsbury did a fantastic job and was able to bring our (very vague!) ideas to life. We both wanted something informal and simple. Sian suggested anemones, gypsophila and ivory freesia and everything came together beautifully with some relaxed decoration at the hotel and simple candles at St Ann’s.

.

There are so many favourite parts to the day… walking down the aisle hand in hand with my mum, seeing Mark for the first time, the lovely service, Nigel’s kind words and the boys’ speeches.

.

I think I’ll always remember the moments Mark & I had together though; the chat over a whisky sour on the balcony, our carousel ride (great idea Sam!), the glass of fizz on the journey to the hotel. It was slowly dawning on us that we were married and we both felt very happy.

My top tip for other Brides Up North would be to relax and enjoy it!  Plan your day around you, your relationship and what means the most to both of you. You can’t go wrong.

Twinkle Toes: Glitter Choos For A Real Wedding At The Great John Street Hotel, Manchester – Becky & Graham

April 16th, 2013 | Julia Braime

.

.

.

What do you get when you mix a beautiful boutique hotel, slick blue suits, boho bridal hair, a well thought out playlist and some to-die-for heels?  Well, Becky and Graham’s gorgeous city wedding in Manchester of course!

.

Major shoe lust.

Becky says:  We got engaged in Mauritius in November 2012.  When Gra popped the question he really wanted to get married in 2012. There were six weeks left of that year… we looked into venues and there were places still available that we were very tempted by but unfortunately a close family member had to go for an emergency operation and the recovery was going to be a while so we waited until Christmas and booked our wedding for March 1st 2013.  We were very excited!

.

We are actually from Leicester but Gra works in Manchester and we both have friends here. We love the city & wanted a urban feel to our day and this ticked all the boxes. The Great John Street Hotel is honestly the most amazing hotel I have ever stayed in. It’s an old school house that has been converted but it’s very boutique and truly luxurious. If you have never been its worth a stay or even just visit for afternoon tea or a  cheeky cocktail. It’s the definition of beautiful!

.

I actually bought my dress from China, I had it made and shipped over. Then I had it tweaked at a local bridal shop.  My bridesmaids were all in Monsoon gowns, and Gra and the groomsmen wore suits by Reiss.   

.

Our amazing flowers were from David Wayman Flowers at Spinningfields. My bouquet was made up of cream hydrangeas, dusky pink roses and  spray roses – it was very simple and elegant.

We absolutely loved walking out of the ceremony and seeing everyone and the speeches were brilliant.

We had a moment where we both sat back and looked at all our guests and we felt so lucky to have them all with us on our special day. We were very overwhelmed.

We had brown envelopes with everyone’s names stamped on for place setting. Inside we did individual cards with a photo of each guest and wrote a special message inside.

.

We made CDs as favours.  They had all the music from our wedding day on them and had songs that remind us of all the special people involved in our wedding. We still get messages from people now saying they are listening to it in their car and reminds them of what a special day it was.

.

.

(c) David Stubbs Photography

.

.

During the day we used our iPod for music. Gra is a bit of a music fanatic and sorted it all out into sections: music for the service, reception drinks and meal – all mix of swing, jazz and update music, it was perfect.  In the evening we moved down into the oyster bar and had a live band.

Charlotte at Crafty Baker made our cake. It was amazing.  We had jars around the venue that we had decorated with vintage lace and dusky pink ribbon and Charlotte had incorporated this into the cake and it all matched perfectly. My bridesmaids had also had a beautiful cake knife engraved for us that they got from notonthehighstreet.com. 

.

.

.

.

We went to The Fairmont on The Palm Dubai for our honeymoon.  We only went for five nights because of work commitments but would’ve loved to have been there longer. We had a fabulous time. We went on a sand dune safari, cocktails at the Burj Al Arab (which was out of this world) and went up the Burj khalifa, and lots more adventures!  It was a special trip.

.

.

(c) David Stubbs Photography

.

.

My top tip for other Brides Up North is don’t get stressed!  We planned our wedding in two months.  Make sure you get a great photographer/videographer to capture and remember your day.  I cannot recommend David Stubbs Photography enough!

Real Wedding Recap 2012: ROCK The Party! A Real Wedding In Leeds – Faye & John

December 31st, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

Leeds Wedding by John Steel Photography

.

.

Over the festive period I’ll be recapping some of my very favourite Real Weddings from the last 12 months on the wedding blog. It’s been a tough choice! In true Brides Up North style, each wedding featured on these pages is unique, beautiful and gorgeously personal. It’s been an exceptionally fabulous year! Enjoy…

.

As we head into the New Year it’s off to Leeds to recap on the fun filled Real Wedding of Faye & John, sent to me by Brides Up North North Featured Supplier John Steel Photography (click here to read a recent interview with this lovely man).  Get ready to parrrrrrrrrrrrrrty!

.

Yorkshire Wedding by John Steel Photography

Faye says:  We got engaged in April 2011, whilst on a holiday in Robin Hoods Bay. I grew up in Robin Hoods Bay. John proposed on the beach, it was a complete surprise!

.

.

John Steel Photography

.

.

We were married on 25th August 2012 in Leeds City Centre. We had the ceremony at the Park Plaza hotel, overlooking City Square. We had a drinks reception outside the Loch Fyne, City Square and enjoyed the sunshine. Then headed back to the Park Plaza for our wedding breakfast and celebrations.

.

.

John Steel Photography

.

.

We both wanted an urban wedding. We hold a lot of fond memories of Leeds so it felt natural to celebrate the big occasion in familiar surroundings with such great memories. We looked at a lot of venues in Leeds and really liked the floor to ceiling windows and the natural light that beamed into the building. The Park Plaza was also fantastic value.

.

.

John Steel Photography

.

.

The theme was a huge celebration/party. We wanted our wedding to be a big celebration, lots of fun, very relaxed and full of colour and laughter. We have been to lots of weddings in the past where they are just overly formal. We are not formal in the slightest so didn’t understand why we should behave that way on what is supposed to be the biggest day of our lives. We are used to celebrating in style so arranged for plenty of fancy dress, party poppers and a ceremony with a twist to put everyone at ease and allow them to act how they would at a party not at a wedding.

I wanted a dress that was simple and didn’t make me feel all trussed up. The dress I chose was a boho style dress, very simple, very light and not at all structured. It was an off the peg dress from Bridal Warehouse in Kirkstall, she has some beautiful dresses and very reasonable prices.

.

I asked for a country garden bouquet, one that looked quite natural. Adrianne Florist made me a beautiful, bright bouquet and it was perfect for the day

John and I weren’t overly precious about all our bridal party looking the same, we just wanted everyone one to feel good in what they were wearing and comfortable on the day. The groom and best man bought their suits from TM Lewin. I tried on a couple of high street shops for our bridesmaids, Coast and Monsoon etc. In the end all the bridesmaids liked the same yellow dress from Monsoon. They were very summery and had the same simple style as my wedding dress.

We worked with a fabulous photographer, John Steel. John has a very friendly and relaxed disposition. He also did a pre wedding shoot with us, and we used these photos on our invitations. He always delivered when he said he was going to. An absolute pleasure to work with and some fantastic snaps.

We really wanted the day to be as inclusive as possible, and would have liked to have everyone at the whole day. This was not an option on our budget so we decided to have an open ceremony and drinks reception and then invited all our evening guests back for the celebrations and music. This worked really well, particularly as we were right in the centre of Leeds and there was plenty for our guests to do for a few hours whilst the wedding breakfast was taking place.

.

.

We also wanted to get as many of our friends involved as possible. We asked a few of our friends to decorate the room and they did a wonderful job, it looked fantastic. The flowers were bought from Marks and Spencer  on the morning and arranged in vases by my Nan & Grandad. A friend of ours made our cake and My Dad and I got a lift to the venue from a friend. Everyone really stepped up to help and this is what made it special for us. That and a paper bag of pork pies for all our guests during the drinks reception. They went down very well!

We worked with some great musicians on the day. Music was provided during the drinks reception by Opie Deino , she played a beautiful acoustic set and all our guests really enjoyed her music, both her own songs and the covers she played.

.

We asked West Yorkshire Brass Band to play during the wedding breakfast. I love the brass sound, it’s very nostalgic. The band was fantastic and really set the scene. Their music has fun, heart-warming and got the guests up dancing doing the wedding breakfast, They even played a fan fair for our arrival, pure brilliance and absolute value for money.

.

During the evening we hired a funk and soul band called Chicago Joes and the Soul Divas. They were brilliant, very high energy and their sound was remarkable.  We asked a friend of ours who is a DJ to close the evening off and he did us very proud. His set was bouncing and so was the dance floor. Thank you Big Jiggy Sniggy Wizzle… you absolutely rocked our party!

My favourite bit?  That’s so hard! Waking up to Billy Idol, White Wedding really got the day off on a cracking foot! What’s not to love about that, cheers Bro! The whole day was remarkable, getting ready with friends and family, the journey to the venue with my Dad, very special. Missing the music queue and having to request, ‘play it again?’ which everyone got laughing. Catching the eyes of our nearest and dearest and of course my husband whilst walking down the aisle. Noticing guests in fancy dress and wigs during the ceremony, the ’husband & wife’ announcement, the trip through Leeds city centre for photos and mischievous fun. The speeches, the first dance, the first dance off. We loved it all.

.

.

John Steel Photography

.

.

John arranged the honeymoon and it was a big surprise when I found out we were going to Peru, to complete the four day Inca Trail and then on to Columbia. South America is always a part of the world I wanted to explore and it was inspiring, intriguing, relaxing and wild! Peru and Columbia are amazing places to visit. I’d highly recommend them.

.

.

John Steel Photography

.

.

My top tip for other Brides Up North would be that we both wanted to face our guests for the ceremony and I highly recommend this. Being able to see your guests while you’re saying your vows is magic. We all laughed so much during our ceremony and it felt very personal.

Real Wedding Recap 2012: Vintage Meets Modern: A Real Wedding In Manchester City Centre – Pam & Ged

December 26th, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

Over the festive period I’ll be recapping some of my very favourite Real Weddings from the last 12 months on the wedding blog. It’s been a tough choice! In true Brides Up North style, each wedding featured on these pages is unique, beautiful and gorgeously personal. It’s been an exceptionally fabulous year! Enjoy…

..

What better way to kick off Boxing Day (trip to the sales anyone?) than with a fabulous Manchester City Centre celebration sent to me by real bride Pam and Jonny Draper Photography.  A vintage meets modern wedding with the chicest of details and a Selfridges fly by?  My kinda day entirely. 

.

Pam says:  On 26th March last year Ged proposed at ‘Grill on the Alley’ in Manchester City Centre. It was really unexpected – I don’t think Ged had even planned to propose that day but it was such a lovely afternoon.

We were married on 28th September 2012 at Manchester Cathedral & our reception was at The Private Room, Restaurant Bar & Grill, Manchester.

.

.

Jonny Draper Photography

.

.

We knew as soon as we got engaged that we wanted our wedding to be in Manchester City Centre as it means a lot to us (we live, work and breathe the city centre and it is actually where we met too). The Cathedral is actually our parish church & is such an unbelievable building! We chose Restaurant Bar & Grill as we love it anyway but Ged and I actually met in the office that is situated in the same building, so there was something really nice about having our wedding in the same building as where we first met.

.

The theme was quite simple, a mixture of modern and vintage. The Cathedral was a very traditional venue whereas the reception venue was much more modern although I tried to keep the vintage feel flowing with the candles. I think my dress captured the vintage look whilst Ged’s suit was very modern.

.

.

Jonny Draper Photography

.

.

I wore ‘Mandalay’ by Ian Stuart from Maria Modes in Macclesfield. I knew I wanted a lace gown with a vintage feel and as soon as I saw it I just knew it was “the one”!

.

Our adult bridesmaids and flower girls wore dresses from Monsoon. Ged and the Groomsmen wore suits from Reiss in Manchester. Ged’s shoes were from Jeffrey West too which he got lots of comments on!

.

I love the plum colour of the bridesmaid dresses which I wanted to be complimented by the colours used in the bouquets of lilacs, pale pinks, taupe and ivory. Ged wanted to keep his suits very classic & simple with a Grey suit, white shirt and black tie!

.

Jonny Draper Photography was amazing! He exceeded all our expectations and the photos have just blown us away. He was fantastic on the day a lot of guests from the wedding have commented on how good he was both on the day and also how ace the photos are!

I carried a posy style of roses by David Wayman, Again, I wanted a modern/vintage feel to the flowers and loved the colours. All the bouquets were also wrapped with some of the lace from my dress which I had kept from when it had been altered.

We used our own car to escort me to the Cathedral as we only live a stone’s throw away from the Church. After the ceremony Ged and I walked from the Cathedral to the Restaurant Bar and Grill, it was only about a 10 – 15 minute walk but we’re really glad we did as Jonny got some really great shots of us especially the balloon one which I think has to be my favourite!

My bridesmaids helped me to decorate the room the night before the wedding, we used pillar candles placed on slate to give a rustic feel and scattered over 200 tiny votive candles around which I had covered in lace. I also used Cath Kidston material to make little lavender hearts which we gave as favours.

.

.

Jonny Draper Photography

.

.

We also used Five Dollar Shake for all the stationery including invitations, Table Plan, Place Settings and Table Names.

.

.

During the wedding breakfast King & Jones acoustic duo helped to create a fantastic atmosphere. The Coolers’ performed at the evening reception who were brilliant – I don’t think I stopped dancing the whole night.

.

Our cake was from Richards Cakes. It was 3 tiers of vanilla, chocolate and carrot cake and was delicious!

My favourite part of the day was our first dance! This was really special as the song means so much to us and Ged had managed to get in touch with the artist who wrote the song on twitter and he came and performed it at our wedding which was amazing! The song was ‘Moonshine & Roses’ by Franco & The Dreadnought.

.

.

Jonny Draper Photography

.

.

My top tip for other Brides Up North would be to try to remember that it’s your day. Don’t worry too much about anything as it will all turn out perfect on the day and by that point you won’t care anyway!

Light & Love! A Real Wedding At The Mansion, Leeds – Amy & Simon

October 4th, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

The Mansion Wedding by Chris Chambers Photography

.

.

This afternoon’s Real Wedding, sent to me by Chris Chambers Photography and real bride Amy is a special one.  And not just because the bride looked bloomin’ gorgeous (she did).

.

Amy says:  We got engaged in July 2010, in the Roman Arena in Verona.  We were just about to watch Madame Butterfly when Simon popped the question.

We were married on 3rd August 2012 at The Mansion, Leeds.  The venue was absolutely beautiful, we loved that it had simple yet grand décor so we had a neutral canvas. Oh, and also the amazing chandelier! Gorgeous food. Fantastic staff… including James our wedding planner from Dine Services – he was brilliant. I could go on!

.

.

Chris Chambers Photography

To an extent the wedding was Italy themed… table names being the Italian cities we visited the summer we got engaged. The favours also contained a mini Disaronno for each guest, and Bacci chocolate (with a love note in each).  I chose cornflower blue as an accent colour. 

.

Maggie Sottero from The Harrogate Wedding Lounge by Chris Chambers Photography

I chose a Grecian style Maggie Sottero dress called ‘Caprice’ it had Swarovski crystals and pearls all down the back. I got it from Hayley at The Harrogate Wedding Lounge

.

The bridesmaids dresses were a last minute purchase (four days before the wedding because the dressmaker completely messed up the ones we were having made) from Warehouse, on ASOS.com.

.

The groomsmen and Simon wore grey suits from Moss Bros, with blue cravats.

I carried a bouquet of blue hydrangeas with white roses, they were amazing. The night before the wedding me and my seven bridesmaids sat up making their white hydrangea bouquets ourselves – it was very easy, we stood them in a bucket in the bath all night, and trimmed the stems just as we were about to leave.

We had The Versonic play at our night do- we are friends with the lead singer, and think the band is ace, they play a mix of old and new songs and get everyone dancing and singing along.  My 11 year old cousin surprised us by singing too.

We chose a three  tier square cake with sugar paste blue hydrangeas on it, fruitcake and sponge.

After the wedding we honeymooned in Aruba at the Riu Palace Hotel.

.

My top tip for other Brides Up North would be don’t get bridesmaid dresses made…buy them, it will save months of stress! And give your parents jobs to do, they love it! Simon’s mum and her partner made all our favour bags up, it was such a help.

.

Congratulations Amy & Simon!

Diva In Disguise! A Real Wedding – Kylie & Ian

July 28th, 2011 | Julia Braime

.

Jenny & Keith McAvoy Wedding Photographers whizzed over this gorgeous set of Real Wedding images to feature on the wedding blog this week.  This wedding blogger loves a city wedding, and Manchester’s very Northern skyline is the perfect setting for a cool and cosmopolitan affair.

.

I can’t wait to head West for my Brides Up North Tweet Up in a week and a bit!

.

.

Brides Up North Wedding Blog: McAvoy Weddings

.

.

Let’s hear from Jenny: We met Kylie & Ian at the Manchester Central UK Wedding Show in October 2010. When we took them to Formby Beach for a pre wedding shoot, Kylie was very shy in front of the camera and said she hated being photographed and had never liked photos of herself.  She told us at the end of the shoot that she had enjoyed it and when she viewed the images she cried because she loved them so much.

.

.

By her wedding day we had met the two of them several times and they were completely relaxed – in fact Kylie had blossomed into a diva – something she never dreamt was possible when we first met her :)

On the day of their wedding this March I spent the morning with Kylie and her bridesmaid getting lots of lovely relaxed shots of them getting ready in the fabulous bridal suite at Great John Street Hotel. Keith spent the morning with Ian and his brother, who was also best man.

The service was on the rooftop of the hotel which was fabulously decorated and lit with candles. The weather was beautiful and drinks were served on the roof top terrace.

The couple chose an afternoon tea followed by an evening BBQ – Ian is a chef and was worried that he would start critiquing the food if they had a sit down meal! Just as the sun was setting, after everyone had tucked into finger sandwiches, tea and cakes, we whisked Kylie and Ian off for 10 minutes for a stroll around Spinningfields in Manchester for some lovely city shots and for a few intimate portraits in the honeymoon suite.
