Let’s brighten things up around this Tuesday with this colour popping celebration sent to me by real bride Kate and wedding photographer Tori Deslauriers. Kate and Phil opted for a fresh look alongside traditional details, personal touches and lots of bright colour. Today’s Real Wedding is all things bright and beautiful. Enjoy.
Kate says: Phil asked me to marry him on 2nd August 2011. We were in the planning process of building a new house, Phil told me we had an appointment to see the architect so I got the afternoon off work. When he picked me up, he told me we weren’t going to the architect we were going to choose an engagement ring. I was given a ring box with a washer in it! I had always said I’d want to pick my own ring, just to make sure…
We were married on Sat 7th September 2013 (ten and a half years after we got together)! The ceremony was at St Peters Church in Humbleton, East Yorkshire and the reception was in a marquee at the Walled Gardens of Burton Constable Stately Home.
The Church is our local parish church, which is a quaint country church and was only 5 minutes from home, so was an obvious choice.
We knew we both wanted a marquee reception – something we could make our own. We had previously been to a wedding at Burton Constable and commented on how beautiful and private the gardens were, it was only 10 minutes from the church so it was perfect. We didn’t even look at any other venues.
We wanted the wedding day to be modern and stylish, so went for a black and white theme with a hint of colour.
