eternal elegance. lilies & lace for a timeless sheffield wedding – helen & william

March 30th, 2018 | Laura McDonagh

The prosecco is chilling in the fridge, the cupboards are stacked high with hot cross buns and we can literally hear the bells of the Lindt bunny ringing aloud – Easter is here, and so it’s a weekend of socialising and indulgence for us. But just before we down tools for the Bank Holiday, we’re opening an obligatory bag of Mini Eggs and poring over this afternoon’s stunning real wedding.

Here at Brides Up North we’re a sucker for stunning church shots, and Helen and Will’s big day really pulls out all the stops – the stained-glass windows, columns and nave are soaked in history and grandeur, plus there’s the heart-warming story of the Canon who couldn’t have been more welcoming. Their reception followed at Whitley Hall, and wandering peacocks, live music and a gin fizz or two made for the perfect evening celebration.

Helen’s vision exudes elegance – all-white florals, a seriously classy duchess satin and lace gown – but there were also plenty of personal touches; from her grandmother’s wedding ring which she wore on the ankle strap of her shoe, to her love for Newcastle United (haway the lads!) being reflected in the black and white colour scheme.

helen says: We got engaged around midnight under the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Will had surprised me with the trip for Christmas, and we went at the end of March 2015. He had carried the ring with him all day, looking for a perfect opportunity. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen – the weather was terrible and he kept setting off security alarms due to the hidden ring! He had to send me on in front of him when we were going into galleries! That evening, he took me for champagne at the Moulin Rouge. It was a fabulous evening. As we walked back to our hotel, I felt a tug on my arm. When I turned around, he was down on one knee. I was completely overwhelmed, and I think I cried for days! When we got back to the hotel, they wouldn’t serve us champagne as they were just closing the bar – miserable lot! However, they did have a vending machine that dispensed champagne, so we were able to toast our engagement.

Our wedding was 5th August 2017. We wanted a summer wedding so that we could enjoy a honeymoon – I’m an assistant head at a secondary school, so I can only go away during holidays.

Our ceremony was at Sheffield Cathedral and our reception at Whitley Hall, Sheffield. The Cathedral was Will’s idea. A church ceremony was very important to me, but as Will has previously been married and divorced, some churches refused to marry us. After a rather rude vicar declined our request to be married at his church, Will took it upon himself to find a way. We attended the Sunday service at the Cathedral and met with Canon Chris. When we explained our situation, he couldn’t have been more welcoming or understanding. We became members of the congregation from May 2015, and we remain so today. The Cathedral community immediately welcomed us, especially Canon Keith, who married us. He spent hours getting to know us and he performed the most beautiful ceremony. To be married in the heart of the city was so special to us, as it was where we first met and bought our first home together.

We visited several reception venues before we went to Whitley Hall. None of them quite met our expectations, whereas Whitley exceeded them. We wanted somewhere elegant, classy and with character. The staff were so accommodating and helpful, and they were able to give us the date wanted. We were guaranteed access to the beautiful walled gardens and the main banqueting suite. We also felt that the rooms were reasonably priced for our guests.

My nana picked my wedding dress, but she sadly passed away four months before our wedding. She was a huge part of my life and she was a big miss on the day. She insisted on paying for the bells to ring at the Cathedral, so she was definitely part of our ceremony. I wore her wedding ring on the ankle strap of my left shoe, so that she was with me every step of the way.

Styling-wise, we wanted our wedding to be simple, striking and elegant. The tables had tall vases with white oriental lilies and greenery, tea lights and a few crystals. Our colour scheme was black and white. It’s a striking and clean-cut combination – and I’m also a Newcastle fan!

I chose a beautiful gown from Nora Eve in Chesterfield. It was the third shop we had been to and nothing had quite met what I had in mind. I wanted something very plain with regards to detail, but with a dramatic silhouette. When I came out of the changing room wearing it my mam, nana and sister (my maid of honour) were all in agreement that it was ‘the one’. I hadn’t wanted lace, but I loved the delicate bodice of the dress with the duchess satin skirt. My nana had the final word, and that was that! I also picked a full cathedral veil to suit the venue. My hair was styled by Amanda from Face2Face – she was very reasonable and accommodating.

Will had a bespoke three-piece suit made via Moss Bros. He wore a white shirt with a cutaway collar, white cravat and pocket square.

stately lace. a pretty wedding at Wynyard Hall – stacey & michael

September 16th, 2014 | Julia Braime

Wynyard Hall Wedding by Foster and Foster Photography - 015

I don’t know about you, but I’ve had a distinct “Tuesday feeling” for much of this morning (the direct opposite of the Friday feeling, which is far nicer).  I’m not sure if it’s a come down from the heady mix of industry and bridal events, high heels and glitter whirlwind that I’ve been spinning around in for the past week or so, but today’s huge to-do list of deathly dull admin left me feeling meh.

That’s until I started putting today’s real wedding feature together.

Stacey & Michael’s beautiful celebration at North East landmark venue Wynyard Hall reminded me exactly why I love this job and that however many VAT returns I have to chew through, I wouldn’t swap it for the world.

Get ready to pretty up your Tuesday and get lost in lace, blooms and birdcage veils…

Stacey says: We got engaged in October 2012. I was meant to have some annual leave from work, but had been very busy at work and consequently had cancelled my holidays.  Unknown to me, Michael had planned a couple of days away.  I phoned him from a work to let him know and when I got home from work, I changed into my pyjamas and began to prepare dinner.  He nipped upstairs and reappeared in our sitting room on one knee and proposed.

He said that he did it because now he was uncertain as to when we could go away he couldn’t wait!

Wynyard Hall Wedding by Foster and Foster Photography - 006

We were married on 8 March 2014. We knew we did not want a long engagement and 16 to 18 months felt about right.

I didn’t want a typical summer wedding as I envisaged the bridesmaids wearing fur capes outside.  We plumped for early March as it was likely to be past the worst bits of winter (heavy snow) but still chilly.

We chose Wynyard Hall, Teeside as our venue. We knew we wanted to get married in the North East as this is where most of our friends and family are.  We also knew we wanted an old venue as this suits our taste. We visited lots of venues, but when we drove up to Wynyard we were blown away by the building and its grounds.  When we went inside and seen the amazing stain glass ceiling with grand piano below, I was sold.

When shown around, we liked that we could use three different rooms through the various stages of the day and have our own bar area.  The terrace on the right was exclusively ours and allowed our guests privacy. In addition Wynyard had amazing bedrooms to accommodate our immediate family and friends, whilst being near enough to other hotels for other guests. It is an incredible venue, with lots of places for amazing photographs as well as creating the perfect atmosphere.

The team at Wynyard were very helpful and friendly and we knew we’d be in good hands on the day. Chris, our master of ceremonies, kept everything on track and did an amazing job.  Maggie our wedding coordinator was very attentive, answered all my queries well and efficiently and everything went smoothly on the day.

Wynyard Hall Wedding by Foster and Foster Photography - 008

Given the venue, I chose lace and, in hindsight, a vintage theme. The boys’ ties were a soft sage green and the bridesmaids wore nude.  The flowers then picked up on these colours with ivories and soft peach. I wanted to go for pale colours and tie everything into the lace that I had chosen for the tables.

I wore a fishtail lace Pronovias dress in an off white colour (Diago).  I bought it from Mia Sposa in Newcastle.  I knew that my preference was for a dress with straps/sleeves and no “bling”. When I tried this dress on, the way it moved made me feel amazing and the lace detail was spectacular.  Every dress I tried on after it I kept comparing to this one.

What Katy Did Next made me an amazing bespoke birdcage veil. It had a large ivory flower with pearl centre and jewelled leaves on either side.  The small veil was then detachable after the ceremony.  Her expertise and skill was second to none, as was her service.  She also made me some heart shaped shoe clips in ivory so that my shoes were unique!

Michael and the rest of the bridal party wore a mid grey three piece suit hired from Mia Sposa. We bought white shirts from TM Lewin and bought the ties with matching pocket squares from an online retailer.

I had the bridesmaid dresses made to measure by Eve and Adam in Newcastle.  They were nude coloured, sleeveless maxi dresses made to my specification. I chose to do this as I had two adult bridesmaids and two children (13 and 9) so it was difficult to find an off the shelf style to suit all.  I also wanted a dress they could easily use again.

Wynyard Hall Wedding by Foster and Foster Photography - 009

I had a bouquet of white lilac, champagne, soft peach and ivory roses and ivory peonies.

Katherine’s Florists in Newcastle provided these and they were amazing.  Helen at Katherine’s really understood my vision and worked with me to achieve the look I wanted.  She understood that I wanted to use fresh flowers but peonies were out of season at this time so she sourced high quality silk ones which you would not have known were silk when in the arrangement.

The bridesmaids carried very similar bouquets, with more soft peach shades and slightly smaller.

All of the groomsmen had button holes of champagne roses, along with Michael’s grandparents and mum.  My mum had a pearl wrist corsage with a champagne rose which was beautiful.

Wynyard Hall Wedding by Foster and Foster Photography - 020

We cannot praise Sarah and Mark enough for the huge part they played in our wedding day.   We were recommended to use Foster and Foster Photography by several friends and from the minute we contacted them for a quote the service we received was exceptional!

They met with us prior to the wedding to understand the approach we wanted for our photos, get a feel for our wedding and just get to know us in general.  They guided us on the optimal way of getting the crucial group shots we wanted whilst also allowing us to spend time with our guests.

On the day they were very much in the background, but still managed to capture amazing images!  They made us feel very relaxed throughout the day.   Michael in particular was nervous about being put into staged shots and feeling uncomfortable, but Sarah and Mark really made us feel at ease. They were brilliant at taking the group shots we wanted without being intrusive into the natural flow of the day.

The finished product was beyond our expectations and the follow up service has been exceptional!  They sent us a small sample of their shots the day after our wedding which was amazing as we were jetting off on honeymoon.  They then quickly produced a slideshow to send to our friends.  All of our friends and family adore the images and commented on how well executed the photography was on the day.

We also opted to have an album and they worked with us to include all of our favourite pictures.  More importantly they used their expertise to produce a professional finish which flowed well and captured all elements of the day.  They also helped us to get some extra shots printed for our family.  Small things like arranging specific times to deliver our disk of photos and album (to ensure we would receive them quickly and in perfect condition) really added to the already exceptional service.

I would not think twice about recommending Sarah and Mark as any couple’s wedding photographer.  The service was faultless and they are a lovely couple who work incredibly well together.  We are very lucky to have such amazing pictures from our special day!

Wynyard Hall Wedding by Foster and Foster Photography - 021

We did not want people to sit on certain sides in the ceremony so had a personalised framed picture made saying “Today two families become one, choose a seat not a side”. I reserved the first two rows of the ceremony room for immediate family, bridesmaids and groomsmen and had names badges made which I used as place names in the ceremony room.

Down the aisle we sprinkled petals and had white lanterns with big candles in them which looked amazing.

In the room where we were married we had to two tall slim vases with large ivory hydrangeas.  These were moved to our wedding breakfast room after the ceremony. Each table had a centre piece with tall vases containing a combination of the bouquets flowers with some ivory hydrangeas.

The top table had several small vases and jars dotted along the table with one or two of the bouquet flowers picked out.  There were then five circular vases into which my bouquet and the bridesmaids’ bouquets were dropped before the wedding breakfast. These were all supplied by Katherine’s Florists.

In addition, as part of our wedding package, Wynyard supplied a floral pedestal display and a floral spray for the registrar table in ivory colours.

Wynyard Hall Wedding by Foster and Foster Photography - 030

I made some vintage style ladders for the table plan which were very unique and stood out next to the piano.  We also had a table of family wedding photos next to the piano, which was brilliant as some people had passed away and it was a way to recognise them.

I also had made some extra frames with M&S in as well as some Mr and Mrs signs.  One of my bridesmaid’s bought us a Mr and Mrs Hall sign for the top table which finished it off perfectly!  She gave it to me the night before which made it an extra surprise!

I hired Posh Chair Covers and Bows to do the lace bows and hoods on the chairs as well as lace runners down the tables which fitted perfectly with the theme!

Wynyard Hall Wedding by Foster and Foster Photography - 024

The cake was one of my favourite things! It was off-white to match my dress and covered in flowers in pale green, peach and ivory to match my colour theme.  They cascaded down the cake and were more closely gathered near the bottom.

The bottom layer was fruit cake made by Michael’s brother (and the best man) who is a chef. There were then two layers of chocolate cake and one of vanilla. It was made by a family friend, Sue Hall. We also had a huge stack of cupcakes to match the main cake as cupcakes are a favourite of mine!

Wynyard Hall Wedding by Foster and Foster Photography - 038

For the wedding ceremony and drinks reception we had a piano player Mark Deeks of Music Newcastle.  We knew we wanted to use the grand piano in the main hallway where guests would be chatting.  It was the perfect accompaniment to our ceremony and Mark provided an excellent bespoke service!  He took requests on the day which our guests really enjoyed!

On the evening we had a local band, The Fontains.  They were better than we could ever have hoped!  They performed our first dance song “Read My Mind” by The Killers and the arrangement was fantastic!  The atmosphere they created was beyond what we could have hoped for!

Wynyard Hall Wedding by Foster and Foster Photography - 034

My favourite part was walking out of the wedding ceremony to the drinks reception because I was officially married to Michael, everything looked perfect and everyone seemed to be having a brilliant time.

I felt I could relax as everything had come together as planned!

Wynyard Hall Wedding by Foster and Foster Photography - 035

For our honeymoon, we went to Barbados for two weeks.  The first week we spent on the west coast near Holtown self catering and the second on the south east coast near St Lawrence Gap.

The weather was perfect for us as it was hot with a breeze.  We explored the island in the first week, visiting various places by bus and foot.  This included going on a catamaran cruise and Landrover off-road island tour.

The second week was absolute luxury in an all inclusive Sandals resort which was amazing and very relaxing after the hectic wedding build up!

Wynyard Hall Wedding by Foster and Foster Photography - 037

One of the last things we booked was a wedding videographer, Ben at HNE Media.  It was one of the best decisions we made as it allowed us to relive the day and listen to the speeches again.  Ben was brilliant and the final product was perfect!

As my top tip for other Brides Up North I would definitely recommend splashing out on a videographer.

Garden Party. La Sposa For A Real Wedding At Hilltop Country House – Claire & Ben

November 25th, 2013 | Julia Braime

Lee Brown Photography

The people in the above photograph just happen to have been responsible for some of the worst hangovers in my whole life (the last on Friday morning, thanks to a flying visit and some Beaujolais Nouveau).  They are my great friends Claire and Ben and I’m thrilled to share their Real Wedding at the beautiful Hilltop Country House – one of our fabulous new wedding exhibition venues for 2014 – on the blog this morning and kick starting the week.

With images by Brides Up North Featured Supplier Lee Brown Photography, Ben and Claire’s wedding – at which I was honoured to be a guest – was oh so pretty, personal and lots of fun (from what I can remember of it)!  I hope the sun shines on their marriage as it did on their wedding day, bright and beautiful.  I know it will.

Claire says:  Ben asked me to marry him in November 2011 at the Feversham Arms Spa Hotel in North Yorkshire and we were married on Saturday 8th June 2013 at the beautiful Pott Shrigley Church followed by our reception at Hilltop Country House, Prestbury.

We wanted a summer themed party and Hilltop had fantastic tiered gardens, a great marquee set-up and excellent hosts who we knew would do a really good job for us on the day.

We both (shamelessly) like our holidays and we wanted an almost Caribbean theme, so we organised mojitos and a steel band for the drinks reception. Luckily, the sun was shining all day too!  The colour palette was pastels and we had a pale mint green with lace details.

We had some great quality food at the wedding breakfast and then cheese, crackers, chutney and port later in the evening.  Our wines and champagne were from Villa St Simon in Bordeaux.

Our cake was a tiered design from a shop called Choccywoccydodah. One tier was lemon, the next was chocolate, the top was coffee. The outside of the cake was covered in white chocolate icing with mint stripes to match our colour theme.

As a surprise to us, we had a TV screen on loop throughout the day in the marquee playing a montage of shots of both of us as babies and toddlers.

We loved every bit of it but, if we had to choose, my favourite part was the service and Ben’s was either arriving at the venue and seeing how great it looked, or, oddly for him (!) even the first dance.

For our honeymoon we went to the USA – New York, Las Vegas , San Francisco and then we drove down Route One to LA and San Diego. We were away for just under the weeks.

My top tip for other Brides Up North would be to try and get all the last minute “small” details sorted at least a couple of days before the big day – then take some time to relax in those last few days beforehand.

White Lace & Pearls: A Real Wedding In Yorkshire – Sian & Chris

Yorkshire Wedding by Richard Wynn Davies

Today’s beautiful Real Wedding, sent to me by Brides Up North Featured Supplier and fabulous photographer Richard Wynn Davies and real bride Sian is an absolute triumph in keeping things simple.

Sian and Chris’ white lace and pearls theme is classic and classy, utterly un-dateable and ever chic. This quiet and pale palette shouts “lovely” loud!

.

Beautiful!

We were married on 3rd August 2012 at St Paulinus Catholic Church, Dewsbury with our reception at Waterton Park Hotel, Wakefield.  We were ‘WOWED’ when we visited Waterton Park for a viewing, and the wonderful staff helped seal the deal.

So Lovely In Lace, A Real Wedding – Nicola & Neil

June 22nd, 2011 | Julia Braime

Friend of the wedding blog, Mark from Tierney Photography sent me this Real Wedding recently, which I have been dying to share with you Brides Up North readers. 

.

Brides Up North Wedding Blog: Tierney Photography

You will soon see why, as this set of images is an absolute delight from start to finish.  A gorgeous setting, a beautiful bride, delicious details, a dash of humour (watch out for the naked groom!) and a very darling little baby bridesmaid keeping the ushers in line.  This might go down as one of my favourites to date.

.

Just looking at the fabulously delicate tea that Nicola and Neil laid on for their guests makes me peckish, so lets get to it!  I’ll have extra sprinkles please!
