If, like me, you’ve got a sweet tooth, this real wedding is going to have you reaching for the ‘treat tin’ as its peppered with delicious treats in a nod to the Easter season.
From Lindt bunny favours and an epic chocolatey wedding cake to a full-scale egg hunt, bride and groom Christine and Christopher certainly spoilt their guests.
And there are more delectable details to feast your eyes on too – cue a beautifully embellished wedding gown, pretty mint colour scheme and pet dog Sybil acting as flower girl. We love!

christine says: We got engaged on 27th March 2016, Easter Sunday. Chris hid an engagement ring inside a chocolate Easter egg and hid it in the woods in Sutton Park in Sutton-on-the-Forest, near York, where we live. We took Sybil our dog out for a walk and Chris asked me to find an egg, he then got down on one knee and proposed. Chocolate and a ring, what more could a woman want!?
We got married on 15th April 2017. We chose the date because it was Easter Saturday and a year from when we got engaged. We both love chocolate so had to choose Easter.
Our chosen venue was Grays Court Hotel in York, where we had both our ceremony and reception. We saw the venue every time we walked along the York city walls and fell in love with it.
Our theme was Easter related and we had an Easter egg hunt for the children (and adults!) and lots of chocolate eggs for guests to help themselves to.
We chose a soft mint colour scheme for bridesmaid dresses, ties and a few other bits just because it was a nice spring colour.
I chose a Morilee by Madeleine Gardner dress in ivory lace with an embellished back. I bought the dress from the Northallerton Outlet wedding shop and had it expertly altered by Thimbelina in York. I fell in love with dress after seeing it on another bride and had to wait with fingers crossed that she would choose another dress so I could have it!
Mine and my bridesmaids’ hair was styled by Escape Hair in Strensall. I’d would recommend them for bridal hair, we got so many compliments on how lovely our hair looked.
