March 17th, 2015 | Julia Braime

Today we join Angela and Riccardo for a wedding celebration in a wonderfully grand setting, complete with elegant 1920s touches.

But it isn’t just the venue and décor that’s looking good. Angela makes for a sparkling and stunning bride in a slinky Sottero and Midgley gown embellished with Swarovski crystals and mirrored beads while her maids look incredibly pretty in flattering floor-length Coast designs.

The men don’t brush up half bad either as they work their dapper blue suits and mustard bow ties – cue some serious man posing!

angela says: Riccardo proposed to me in Beijing on the Great Wall of China. We were on holiday just the two of us, the proposal was a great surprise. We had both always wanted to travel to China so we went and visited a few destinations including Beijing, Xian, Shanghai. When we returned we had an engagement party at Laazats in Hull. We chose to hold it on the anniversary of the date we first got together – February 15th. During the party we announced who we had chosen for our bridesmaids/best man and groomsmen. Keeping this information quiet for so long was very difficult. If anybody wanted to give a gift we asked for a donation to be made to the Macmillan charity due to recently losing a good friend to ovarian cancer at a young age.

Our wedding date was 26th July 2014 and was held at Allerton Castle. We’d always wanted a summer wedding.

Allerton Castle is the most beautiful and amazing location we’d ever seen. This was the first and the last place we visited – we instantly fell in love and never turned back. It has such character and amazing grounds. We also loved the fact that we could celebrate our complete wedding in one location. From staying over the night before in the nearby log cabins to the finishing touches and pre wedding drinks for the girls in the bridal suite and for the boys in the billiard room. We celebrated the civil ceremony within Allerton and had our wedding breakfast and reception within the castle too.

Our theme was focused around the 1920s. We felt the whole elegance of the era fitted in well with the setting for our wedding. Our colour palette was different shades of blues/purples/white and ivory.

I wore a floor-length Sottero and Midgley dress bought from a well-established bridal shop called Deborah Moore in Hessle, Hull. Deborah helped to ensure I found the perfect dress and even did all the alterations. The dress was called Lola. It was a slim A-line cut, with Swarovski crystals and mirrored beads. I also opted for the choice of adding the capped sleeves. The dress colour was diamond white and pewter. I had tried on many dresses before I found this one. When I put it on I knew it was the one. I kept my dress a secret from everyone – the only people who knew were my brother’s girlfriend and my mother.

Riccardo got his suit at a shop called Rees. He wore a three-piece dark blue suit with a white shirt. He wore a mustard bow tie with matching coloured socks and brown shoes. He also had a pocket. He got his suit tailored to a high level by a local source Gillian Long, who was previously a Saville Row seamstress and is now the owner of Cock of the Walk in Hull.

The bridesmaids wore floor-length purple/grey coloured dresses bought from Coast in House of Fraser, again in Hull. They all wore diamond studs which were a present from us. Following the wedding speeches as a surprise on the big day my bridesmaids read out a poem they had written together which went through the journey of me and Riccardo meeting until the present day. This was truly amazing and very emotional!

The boys (groomsmen/best man/father of the bride) all got their suits from Next. They wore two-piece blue suits with a white shirt, brown shoes, matching coloured bow tie and socks. They all also wore a pocket watch which were individually engraved with a personal message. These were again bought by us as a gift to the groomsmen. They were all lined up in the billiard room for when the boys arrived, which was a surprise to all!

All the ushers, best man, groom, bridesmaids and bride arrived at the nearby cabins the day before the wedding. Both groups were separated once arriving – the boys had a barbecue and beers while the girls had nibbles and a pamper session. On the day of the wedding the men walked to the castle and the girls drove.

Our photographer was Andy Crozier of Insight Photography, based in Hull. Andy captured our whole day and even stayed beyond the time we’d arranged. He went above and beyond for us throughout the day, never too pushy but ensured we got exactly what we said we wanted. Andy was great with all of our guests, young and old, and made every single person there on the day felt special. Our images were truly amazing and we would highly recommend Insight to anyone.

I knew Andy personally from childhood, we both lived on the same street since I was the age of eight. Riccardo didn’t know Andy but soon felt at ease and felt comfortable following our initial meet up. We also did a pre-wedding photo shoot at Allerton Castle which we both felt was a great touch. Andy used our favourite image as a message board for guests to sign on the day.

We also had a videographer who helped capture the memories of our wonderful day. It was a lovely and very professional guy called Dan Cain.

Our flowers were provided by Twisted Willow and were done to such a high level. We had great customer service and felt automatically at ease that the flowers and decorations were to be done professionally. Again we would definitely recommend them. My bouquet consisted of mainly white and ivory colours with a touch of pastel shades. The flowers had a lovely lace ribbon which I then attached a blue brooch to (I used this as my something blue). The brooch was borrowed from a very special friend.

In terms of décor we had a candelabra at either side of us when we read our vows which were decorated with white and pastel coloured flowers draped with crystals. We had candles on either side of the staircase and the reception tables all had tall vases with balls of flowers draped in crystals and pearls. We also had scattered tea light candles around the room.

As favours we gave small bottles of sparkling rose wine to the ladies and white sparkling wine for the men. The wedding favours had a custom made ribbon around them in dark blue with gold text which said ‘Mr and Mrs Seaton’. Also attached to the ribbon was the person’s name tag and a cluster of vintage keys. Keys being the symbol of the key to a happy life/key to success and key to a happy future. The children had loom bands and sweets.

Our wedding cake was again from a locally sourced supplier. The lady who designed and made it was the sister of a long term friend of Riccardo’s, who was also one of our ushers. The cake maker owns a shop in Sutton, Hull, called Cake-licious. We followed our 1920s theme through with our cake design. The cake was a four-tier hexagonal shape with lots of geometric prints/designs. We had different flavours: lemon, chocolate and vanilla. All of our ushers put towards buying us our cake as a gift from them.

Brides Up North Featured Supplier Dine provided our food and drinks. For our drinks post ceremony we had bottled beers and Pimms. We made our own sweetie table display with lots of retro sweets.

Music during the day was provided by the events company Trio Vivo. During the wedding breakfast we also arranged a surprise. Using the events company we set up a staged performance pretending to have a very drunk guest and a waitress who then broke out into singing opera. These two were truly amazing and left many without a dry eye. To end our celebrations we then partied through into the evening at the castle with the music supplied by Chris Hilton’s Little Big Band. We were very impressed with all!

Towards the end of the evening we also had a five-minute firework display (and sparklers), provided by Ferrensby Fireworks. We would recommend using this service along with other fab suppliers we used on the day including hair stylists and beauticians from Bows in Anlaby for the hair and make-up and a good friend of ours Rachel Peterson from Hull who had recently completed her wedding planner course. Rachel worked with us from the beginning right until the end and ensured we both felt at ease and kept us both in line and very organised with all the planning and finer details.

We would also most definitely recommend Allerton Castle to other couples. It’s an amazing location and I’m yet to see a more perfect location.

We couldn’t pick a favourite part of the day – we enjoyed it all! This may sound cheesy but we can genuinely describe it as the best day of our lives to date.

For our honeymoon we went to New York and Orlando, Florida. We spent one week each location. With some of the money guests gave we booked a limo trip around New York City by night which was an experience we would definitely recommend.

an elegant wedding at Allerton Castle (c) Insight Photography (50)

My top tip or other Brides Up North is enjoy every single minute of the day. People told us it would go quick and it sure did. Cherish every moment.

As an extra special touch on the wedding day we set up a message in a bottle for our guests to each put a message in for us. The plan is that we will smash it open on our first wedding anniversary (which we’re hoping to celebrate in Hawaii) and read all of the messages.

The Editorials: Va-Va-Groom!

February 18th, 2013 | Julia Braime

Wedding Magazine

.

In this new blog series, The Editorials, I share my pre-published offline content, online.  I write on a freelance basis for numerous regional and National glossies, and rather than be relegated to being rather posh chip paper, I thought that my words might be useful to my online readers who didn’t manage to pick up a print copy of my features.  Double the pretty!

.

.

Wedding Magazine

.

.

The second instalment in this series (click here to see the first, focussing on the trend for all white weddings) catches up on a column I wrote for Wedding Magazine before Christmas, all about giving your groom some va-va-voom!

.

.

Wedding Magazine

.

.

I wrote: The days of identikit grooms are long gone. You might be preoccupied with selecting the perfect wedding gown, but you can bet that your other half is also giving some careful thought to his own wedding day look. For him too, this is a day where he wants raise the style stakes and feel that little bit special.

Luckily, there has never been more of a sartorial selection for a groom to choose from. Whether he is a traditionalist looking for a classically cut morning suit or an individual wanting to cut a dash with quirky accessories, it’s now acceptable for the groom to look beyond a hired waistcoat and cravat. Whilst it’s true that his choice of attire should complement the overall style of the bridal party, some of my favourite wedding day images are those where the personality of the groom shines through.

If he wants to keep his look classic, help him to stand out from the rest of the wedding party by choosing a different colour of tie or more elaborate buttonhole.

The cravat caveat

.

Rather than sticking to the status quo, encourage your man to mix things up with by adding a special touch. How about a colourful bow tie, socks, braces, sharp shoes or a neckerchief?

Keep it comfortable

For a relaxed celebration or destination wedding he needn’t be trussed up like a turkey. Work with the style of his surroundings and opt for light fabrics and a pale colour palette.

If he’s decorated, this is his chance to show it off. I also love to see a groom in national dress: kilts at the ready boys, it’s time to show some leg!

Elegance Rising! A Real Wedding At Rise Hall – Kay & Ian

August 31st, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

Rise Hall Wedding by Insight Photography

.

.

And why not round the working week off with another beautiful Real Wedding?

.

This elegant celebration was sent to me by real bride Kay and Brides Up North Wedding Exclusive exhibitor Andrew at Insight Photography and the setting is a very special one, being the fabulous location for one of our Brides Up North Wedding Exclusives this Autumn: Sarah Beeny’s Rise Hall.

.

This is an amazing place to host your wedding day, whether you dress it to the nines or go for a simple, letting the venue speak for itself decor like Kay and her new husband did. 

.

To see it for yourself, remember to pre-register as a VIP Bride To Be when we throw open the doors for a day of full on wedding inspiration on 21 October 2012. 

.

.

.

For now though, let’s hear from the lovely Kay:  We got engaged half way down a mountain while skiing in 2006 (we met skiing and it is a passion for both of us)!  We were married on 7th July 2012 at Rise Hall, near Beverley.  

.

.

Insight Photography

.

.

We chose the venue as we have a love of restoration, old buildings and also for the exclusivity.  It was the whole day in one location including accommodation.  The venue was the star of the day for us and so we kept everything muted, simple and elegant so as not to detract from the venue, with a colour scheme of navy and ivory.

I wore a halter neck silk ruffled long ivory dress from Tickled Pink in Doncaster.  I chose it for it’s elegant simplicity and comfort and the halter neck helped disguise some scars on my neck.  I carried a bouquet of white cala lilies from Flowers By Sally May.

.

My hair and makeup was by Victoria Farr Make Up & Hair Specialist

.

My bridesmaids wore satin navy strapless knee length fitted dresses with one vertical ruffle detail from Coast and the groomsmen wore navy tailed jackets, with navy striped trousers and ivory waistcoats from Moss Bros.

The chance to see all our friends and family was the best part of the day for me as we all live so far apart and rarely get together and I was very humbled at how far people came from at such short notice and through torrential rain.groom).  Ian said that the sun shining and everyone outside chatting and laughing while Thomas Benjamin played fantastic music was his highlight. 

.

To keep our younger guests entertained we laid on a big selection of outside toys and chose and individually wrapped presents for all the children including a disposable camera and a list of things to photograph – which kept them busy!

My top tips for other Brides Up North would be don’t try to please everyone, because you just can’t and don’t skimp on the photographer, the photos will last forever. Pick a photographer that you feel a good connection with as well as good reputation.

“Hello I Love You” A Real Wedding In Yorkshire – Amy & Matthew

July 19th, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

This afternoon’s post is a little different to most on the wedding blog, but at the same time, so, so similar. 

Amy and Matthew’s wedding day was the most lovely and joyful of days, but sadly their wedding had to be brought forward because the groom was suffering from Hodgkins Lymphoma, from which he never recovered.  Amy and Matthew’s day, full of happiness, really celebrated their love for each other, and I am so thankful to Amy for sharing their photographs with Brides Up North this afternoon.

.

Next time you are stressing out over favours or finding the exact shade of peony to match your bridesmaids’ dresses, take a minute to remember what it’s all about: love.  We don’t all get our happy ending and as some wise men once said, love is all you need.

.

Andrew of Insight Photography says: It was the highlight of my UK career when Matthew and Amy ‘tied the knot’ at St Andrews Church in Kirkella and held their enormous celebration at The Hallmark Hotel on a glorious Bank Holiday.

.
If you’re a celebrity voyeur, you will no doubt have come across Matty – he is one of the UK’s most highly decorated hair stylists working with the internationally renowned icon
Mark Hill for over 25 years.

.
I met Amy about six years ago when I returned from my nine years of ‘retirement’ whilst living in Canada and when they approached me to cover their special day, I was totally honoured. Matthew had been battling Hodgkins Lymphoma for over 2 years however due to the rigours of his treatment, the couple pulled out all of the stops to move their wedding to Bank Holiday Monday.

.
Their wedding day was nothing short of one of the most moving experiences I have ever witnessed. Just to put Matthew’s popularity into perspective, personal messages were read out during the speeches from Fearne Cotton, Ant & Dec, Jonathan Ross, Trevor Sorbie and Nicky Clarke – all apologising for not being able to make it due to the ‘other’ Royal wedding which is apparently happening the following weekend!  A true legend married his bride in a style that only Matthew and Amy could pull off under such incredible circumstances.

.
I am really proud to say it was definitely a defining moment for me and a total privilege to capture the most special of days and I will never, ever forget seeing Matthew’s face as Amy walked down the aisle and the beam of light that emanated from this couple all day will never leave me.

.

Amy says:  Matthew and I got engaged on Sunday 17th January 2011 in The Wheatsheaf, Kirk Ella, the same place we met 8 years earlier.

.

We arranged to get married on Saturday 4th June 2012, however with Matthew’s diagnosis worsening, we brought the wedding forward and got married on Easter Monday, 25th April 2011. Everyone was great, suppliers couldn’t do enough for us and friends rallied around to make things happen

We were married at 12 noon at St Andrew’s Church, Kirk Ella, with the reception at The Hallmark Hotel, North Ferriby. The reverend Jonathan Juckes conducted the service and we were joined by over 200 guests. The village was brought to a standstill from well wishers, it was amazing!

.

We both wanted to get married in Church and our village church was just the perfect choice. Jonathan Juckes had really supported Matthew through his illness and I had known him for a long time too as I run the local Brownie unit. He was more than obliging to anything we wanted, including moving the wedding to get married on Easter Monday.

.

.

A Real Wedding In Yorkshire by Insight Wedding Photography

.

.

There wasn’t a theme as such. I put my mark on the day and Matthew had his spin on it too. It all fitted just so well together.  We both chose a colour. My favourite colour is pink and when I asked Matthew, he said black… I said try again, how about silver? He said OK!

I went to Deborah Moore Bridal in Hessle as I loved Maggie Sottero dresses I’d seen on the internet. I tried lots of dresses on… all the same style… I just didn’t put ‘the one’ on.  As I was leaving Deborah’s mum said to me, “Amy, just try this…” She pulled a dress out, I didn’t like it at all, it wasn’t anything like what I had tried on during my appointment. I put it on and immediately said I want it. Sonya by Maggie Sottero,  one-piece, corset, strapless gown with A-line skirt and chapel train. Satin are chiffon bands are ruched on the bodice. The side hip is accented with a crystal brooch. Fluted chiffon cascades from the side hip to the hemline. I love it!

.

For the bridesmaids, I knew exactly what I wanted. Matthew was a massive MOD and the guys would be in dapper suits (by Moss Bros).  My bridesmaids wore a calf length 50’s style dresses. It took me ages to find it, then driving through a local village one day, there it was in the window of Jacqueline’s. I made an appointment for the following Saturday and all the girls loved it too. 

.

Hair and make up on the day was done by The Mark Hill Salon and Jan Lloyd of Lloyds Hair & Beauty, Hull.

I carried a bouquet of hot pink gerbera, orchids and roses by The Flower Stylist in Kirk Ella.  The adult bridesmaids carried white orchids with bright pink centres, wrapped in aspidistra leaves and my little bridesmaids had hot pink gerberas.

The boys arrived at the church on Vespas. Matthews got a retro vespa which is the replica of Sting’s from Quadrophenia, they looked amazing.  I travelled to the church by horse & carriage from KRM Carriages , which Matthew and I left in afterwards too. The bridesmaids, the groomsmen, my mum and Matthew’s mum travelled in cars supplied by Marshalls of Hull.

In the evening we had a band, Kinked, and then a DJ with karaoke. Matthew loved to sing and I’d give it a go too… it was just one big party!  Matthew was a massive Jim Morrison fan and the band did a full Doors set with Matthew, him singing as Jim Morrison, he loved it.

.

We went to Lanzarote on Honeymoon.  Lanzarote was where we first went on holiday together in October 2003, 6 months after we met. We got the OK from Matthew’s doctors to go away for a week, we pushed them and eventually they let us away for 10 days!  We stayed at The Sandos Papayago Arena in Playa Blanca. It was lovely. 

.

.

My top tip for other Brides Up North would be plan ahead, don’t think you’ve got ages to sort things, time creeps up on you very quickly. You need to be ‘too’ organised when you’re planning your wedding, there’s so much to do.
