Who said pretty pastels couldn’t come with a huge dose of glamour?  Today’s real bride Hayley and new husband Stephen are ripping up the rule book with their soft and stylish Real Wedding at Rockliffe Hall.

Hayley says:  We got engaged at the Burj al Arab, Dubai in February 2006.  Steven proposed on Christmas day in 2005. We didn’t want a party so we celebrated our engagement with a trip Dubai to pick a ring.

We were married on 22nd September 2013 at Rockliffe Hall, Darlington.  I wanted a classy and timeless wedding and Rockliffe offers modern and old mixed together. We had our ceremony in the old arches which offered a nicer feel than just a function room. The colour scheme is quite neutral which enabled us to go for any colour scheme we wanted.

We had lilacs, lavenders, ivories and a beautiful thistle colour in our stationery. Grey suits for the gents, accented with lilac cravats and handkerchiefs to give a subtle bit of colour to blend in with the rest of the wedding. My dress and the bridesmaids were all ivory. I wanted a neutral palette with the flowers taking centre stage.

My dress was from Solutions Bridal Designer House in Orlando Florida.  The dress was antique ivory with ivory lace in a mermaid strapless fit. I opted for a very long veil trimmed in the same lace as the dress and a very glamorous belt made by Maria Elena and Manolo Blanik shoes with a beautiful vintage brooch on the front.

The hair was prepped by myself the evening before (I’m am a hairstylist) ready for my friend Carol-Anne Jenkinson who is the owner of Platinum Hair Design in Sunderland. She also did her magic on the bridal party. I had my makeup done by Amanda Bell Elite Makeup Artist.

Our flowers were by Adam Prest who is very unique in his work and knew exactly what I wanted. My bouquet consisted of a vibrant lilac roses, astrania, astilbe,clematis,snowberries and sweetpeas. They smelt beautiful. The bridesmaids had smaller versions of my flowers with a mix for the top table and centre pieces for the tables at the wedding breakfast. We also had similar mixture for the gents’ button holes and ladies’ corsages.

We had six bridesmaids from two years old to sixteen.  The younger bridesmaids wore dresses from Monsoon and the two older bridesmaids wore a dress from Coast which was from the bridal range. I think they blended nicely together.

The groomsmen wore hired suits from Gavin Scott Menswear in Washington. The grooms suit was made by Ian Bone a visiting tailor. He came to our home and measured Steven up, we picked the material and and cut of the suit. It was a very professional and friendly service from Ian and we had two more fittings before the finished result.

Our photographer was the amazing Lee Scullion. We had a lot of recommendations from people but as soon as I saw Lee’s work I knew he was the man for the job.

Our videographers were Chris and Janet Hughes for One Digital Image – a great husband and wife team. They made a one minute video summarising the day so we could share with our guests and friends which was really unique in itself and was ready to view the following morning.

Lee Scullion Photography at Rockliffe Hall

Our save the dates and invitations were by Noble Fine Art. They also made our favour boxes, the menu for the tables at the wedding breakfast and the seating plan in a beautiful pearl stock paper with thistle ribbon.

Simply Bows & Chair Covers dressed our tables with a new range of lace chair coverings.

We had handmade chocolates made for the favour boxes from Robineau Patisserie in Darlington and mini bottles of whiskey for the gents.

The cake was from Celebration Cakes in Peterlee, I scaled it down from the original design in the shop. It had six tiers with all different sponges and fruit cake. It had a pearl covering with roses and lace made from sugar paste and tied in with all the little elements from the wedding.

We had Val Boyers singer and guitarist singing during our wedding breakfast and a fantastic local band (Fate) singing live on the evening of the wedding. 

Prime Entertainment provided Formula One cars which were very popular and we also hired Snaparazzi and their fabulous photo booth.  We got a book of everyone’s photos who had been in the photo booth with a message alongside the photos which is a really nice and different keep sake.

I downloaded an app called Wedpics and invited all our guests to upload all their photos.  I thought this to be better than having disposable cameras and it worked well.

Honeymoon wise, we’re are still working on that one, we want something different!

My top tip for other Brides Up North would be to enjoy and take every moment in because it goes over far too fast and don’t drink to much Champagne!

Pure Beauty: A Real Wedding At Hardwick Hall Hotel – Zoe & Ian

July 5th, 2013 | Julia Braime

.

.

Happy Friday everyone! This morning the wedding blog is visiting the North East and Hardwick Hall Hotel as Zoe and Ian celebrate their big day in style. 

.

With images by Brides Up North Featured Supplier Lee Scullion and at one of our very favourite venues (have you pre-registered for our Grand Wedding Exhibition in September yet?) let’s join the couple for their classically beautiful wedding day.

Zoe says: Ian asked me to marry him on Christmas Day in 2011 and we were married on 17th May 2013 at Hardwick Hall Hotel, Sedgefield. 

.

.

.

We chose Hardwick Hall Hotel as we have been going there for over 20 years and it is so beautiful. 

.

.

Lee Scullion Photography at Hardwick Hall Hotel

We opted for a vintage theme with lots of flowers and bird cage centre pieces on the tables.   We used a colour palette of soft pink and French blue.

I chose a traditional white dress with a long train and veil to match, and carried a bouquet of white avalanche roses by Charlotte at House Of Flowers. 

.

.

.

.

My bridesmaids wore dusky pink dresses from Laura Lee Boutique  and the groomsmen were in a French blue slim fit suit with a pale blue silk skinny tie by Leaf Clothing in Newcastle.  Brian and the staff at Leaf Clothing really went that extra mile to ensure that everything was perfect. 

.

We made sure that there was lots of canapés and champagne for our guests while we were having our photographs taken with Lee Scullion.  The day was nice and relaxed with no strict time limits.

My top tip for other Brides Up North is to try to relax and allow yourselves to enjoy your day.  It is over so quickly!  Try to complete your arrangements in good time so you are not adding to the stress that weddings create.

Country Castle: A Melissa Sweet Ballgown For A Real Wedding At Langley Castle – Amanda & Aaron

April 26th, 2013 | Julia Braime

.

.

We first met today’s bride and groom Amanda and Aaron when I featured their beautiful Lake District engagement shoot here on the wedding blog (click here to catch up) and now we join them – along with some rather brilliant Brides Up North Featured Suppliers – to celebrate their colourful and opulent big day in the North East.

.

With images by Lee Scullion.

Enjoy your Friday Brides Up North, the weekend starts here!

Amanda says:  Aaron asked me to marry him on 29th April 2012 at Aira Force, a waterfall in the Lake District, and we married on Sunday 10th March 2013 at Langley Castle.

.

.

(c) Lee Scullion

.

.

We searched for a long time for the perfect wedding venue. We knew that we wanted to have the ceremony in a castle, but we also wanted 5-star service, top-notch bedrooms and facilities, and exclusive use on the day. Langley Castle offered that and more. The service went above and beyond our expectations and the rooms were incredible. We couldn’t have chosen a better venue for our wedding. It was perfect!

.

.

.

.

.

.

We kept it fairly traditional with top hats and tailcoats and added a bit of Western flair, as I am originally from Texas. For the evening reception my bridesmaids and I all rocked our cowboy boots and we served Tex Mex for our evening buffet.  We chose a colour scheme of dark purple, ivory, bronze, spring green and emerald green. We wanted to incorporate some colours of a peacock as Langley Castle has peacocks on the grounds.

I wore an ivory Melissa Sweet ballroom-style gown. I bought the dress in America because I wanted to go shopping with my sisters and my mom who live over there.

My bridesmaids wore dark purple halter-neck and floor-length gowns made of mostly a floaty chiffon material from America. We also had ivory furry boleros for when we were outside in the snow. The groomsmen wore tailcoats and top hats with dark purple cravats from Slaters. Aaron wore an ivory cravat to match my dress.

.

.

.

.

.

My favourite part of the day was the ceremony itself because that’s what it’s really all about. Aaron and I had space for a reading during our ceremony, but we decided to personalise it by each saying 25 things we love about each other. They were sweet, funny, quirky, and all from the heart which really symbolizes our relationship as a whole. It also helped us to keep from shedding too many tears!

Our videographers were A&G Productions who were absolutely fabulous. Our photographer was Lee Scullion, who honestly is the best photographer we have seen (and we interviewed a lot before we chose him!). We had numerous compliments from our friends and family about both Lee and A&G Productions about how professional and friendly they were. Not to mention the fabulous results from Lee! With Lee Scullion it isn’t just about the photographs, it’s how he makes you feel comfortable, his sense of humour, and all the little touches and surprises he has up his sleeve. We had a photo booth as well, Limelight Photobooth Hire, who went out of their way to provide us with the Western-themed background we were looking for. They also had a few little surprises for us and I’m so happy we went with them.

Our flowers were provided by Lorna from No Ordinary Floral Designer in Chester le Street. She provided exactly what we wanted and we couldn’t be happier with her results. My bouquet was full of wildflowers, some dark purple calla lilies, rosemary, thistle, tulips, and a couple peacock feathers to keep with our peacock colour scheme. The bridesmaids had smaller versions for their bouquets and the moms each had a little corsage to match.

We tried to incorporate both Texas and England into our wedding, since Aaron and I come from two very different places. Our favourite special touch was our handmade bespoke party favours provided by Sammylou Gifts. They were rustic wooden hearts and on one side was the Texas flag, and on the other was a Union Jack. Each one had a tag with the guest’s name and our wedding date. They were a unique and perfect way to incorporate our background and be nice little keepsakes! Sammylou is based in Somerset, they have free shipping within the UK and they can provide almost anything you can dream of so they were the best choice for us!

We had Andrelli as our string duo during our ceremony, and they were fantastic. They incorporated classical music as well as pop which was perfect for our ceremony. We had a live band for the evening reception, Chameleon, who blew us away with their talent. They even learned our favourite country song to play for all the Texans who attended the wedding. It was amazing!

.

After the wedding we went to Disneyworld, Florida and then Maui and Oahu. The honeymoon was so much fun and they places we stayed were outstanding!

.

.

(c) Lee Scullion

.

.

There are a lot of preparations, stress, and anxiety that go into planning a wedding. The best advice that I can give to other Brides Up North is that on the day of your wedding, don’t worry about the little things, or the things you might have forgotten, or if something comes up that was unexpected. Just enjoy every single moment, from the time you wake up to the time you go to bed, and soak up everything you can.

.

Congratulations Amanda & Aaron!

Snowkissed! A Real Engagement In The Lake District – Amanda & Aaron

March 8th, 2013 | Julia Braime

.

Lee Scullion Photography

.

.

Nothing like a bit of fresh air and a lovely love story to round off the week!  Amanda and Aaron are getting married this very weekend in the North East (congratulations!), but first, we join them and their wedding photographer, Brides Up North favourite Lee Scullion, at the spot – of immense natural beauty – where Aaron got down on one knee.

.

Leave those stilettos at home!  It’s walking boots at the ready as we are headed to the great (and gorgeous!) outdoors…

Aaron says:  We got engaged in April 2012, in the Lake District. Amanda guessed it was going to be that weekend. It was at Aira Force. It’s a waterfall, with a stone bridge over it (we have a tradition of kissing in the middle of every bridge we walk over together). We went to the lakes for the weekend, and we climbed Helvelynn on the Saturday. Amanda thought that I would propose at the top, but I didn’t, so she was a little upset that night. I waited until the Sunday night, just before we were due to come home, and I got down on one knee on the bridge as it was pouring down with rain. And she said yes, of course! We were both very excited and did a bit of jumping around and kissing each other!

Amanda came to the UK to study at the University of Nottingham and we met when some mutual friends and family went out to dinner.

.

.

Amanda asked me if I would be her tour guide as she wanted to travel around England. I suggested taking her to the Lake District for a long weekend! It seemed to start out as a sightseeing trip, but I think we both had ulterior motives. By the end of it we knew we wanted to be together.

.

.

When Amanda had to go back to America after her visa expired and I couldn’t bear the thought of being without her,  I knew she had to move back as soon as possible.

.

.

Lee Scullion Photography

.

.

.

.

We love how happy we make each other, and our biggest wish for married life is to grow together and be there for each other through thick and thin.

.

.

Lee Scullion Photography

.

.

We chose to have an engagement shoot as we wanted to capture and share how we felt in the beautiful setting where I proposed. It was also a great opportunity to get to know our fabulous wedding photographer, Lee Scullion, and get used to being photographed before the big day.

.

We would like to make a small album and use our favourite photo for a signature frame at our wedding ceremony for all our guests to sign. We are also using two more photographs to give to our mums as thank you presents since our wedding is on Mother’s Day. After seeing the photographs, we have a lot of confidence in our photographer and are extremely excited about having him on our wedding day. It was a great decision to have the engagement shoot! I would recommend it to everyone.

.

.

Lee Scullion Photography

We love Brides Up North as it’s a great jumping off point when looking for suppliers and ideas, and we’ll definitely be back to share the photographs from our big day!

Congratulations Amanda & Aaron!

Fabulous Photographer: Lee Scullion

January 30th, 2013 | Julia Braime

.

Lee Scullion Wedding Photographer

.

.

I’ve said it before, but I will be forever indebted to this man – the fabulous Lee Scullion – for calming and coaxing my very nervy husband-to-be away from the porcelain and out into the light on the morning of my own wedding when Lee was playing second shooter and sent to look after the boys.  I can’t think what Alan could have been nervous about (can you?)!  Luckily, there isn’t much a Mars bar and Lucozade can’t fix and he made it to the church on time, stopping for some gorgeous shots along the way. 

.

Now, Lee’s back on the pages of the wedding blog in his official capacity as a Brides Up North Featured Supplier, as we learn more about the man behind the lens (and Lucozade).  Over to Lee…

.

.

How did you get into wedding photography?

.

Although I began taking photographs from the age of 14/15 photography for me really started when I was at college, I would always organize, arrange, make & design small budget fashion shoots, fascinated with fashion and beauty.  As soon as I got my diploma I fell into work with a portraiture company which then lead me to work for a bigger photographic UK house resulting in my expedition right now.  A little round the world trip working with some fascinating people and events and I am now in my seventh year as a professional photographer.

.

.

Lee Scullion Wedding Photographer

.

.

Lee Scullion Wedding Photographer

.

.
Why wedding photography specifically?

.

I love men and woman who are very aware of who they are, its great to photograph brides with that quality. However, you will find there are some folk who feel uneasy about it all and it is very challenging and rewarding to photograph someone who is very shy at first and become at ease with you and their surroundings.  You bring that out in them!

.

.

Lee Scullion Wedding Photographer

.

.
What is your favourite thing about being a wedding photographer?

.

People for sure, but I have to say the whole design of a wedding: the dress, the shoes, the jewellery.  I am always very interested in the styling of each wedding. I love to advise or give ideas of my own, after all we see more wedding shoes than anyone else! Sometimes you have to go for style over comfort… but you really don’t have to.  If your dress hits the floor and you don’t want expensive weddings shoes or they hurt too much… go out and by some Vivienne Westwood jelly heels for example, comfortable but very quirky.

.

.

Lee Scullion Wedding Photographer

.

.
How do you get couples to relax on the day?

.

I really don’t think I’ve thought about that until right now.  I guess being very relaxed myself and always fun and happy helps, being silly and a little crazy helps too.

.

.
Any advice to any brides who don’t like to have their picture taken?

.

The best advice I could give a nervous or self aware bride would be to try it out first!  That’s why us photography folks push pre-wedding shoots.  Enjoy different styles together with the photographer, make sure you see your pictures together, listen to advice from your partner and don’t pick apart everything about yourself.  Your wedding is all about enjoyment – if you ate relaxed and enjoying yourself with others, the photographs will reflect that.

.

.

Lee Scullion Wedding Photographer

.

.

Lee Scullion Wedding Photographer

.

.
What sort of makeup should a bride wear to look great in her pictures?

.

I would always stay very natural with your skin tones, if you don’t wear make up all the time, stay clear of wild bold colours. Then again, I work with some excellent make up artists from Bobbie Brown to Illamasqua so I would leave that question up to the pros.

.

.
Anything to avoid which might look bad in the wedding pictures?

.

As long as its you doing you it will work, personally I would stay clear of props unless you are having a related theme.

.

.

Lee Scullion Wedding Photographer

.

.
Which celebrity wedding would you most like to photograph and why?

.

I would adore the chance to work with Lara Stone or Natasha Poly.  Pharell Williams would be a big box ticked too!

.

.

Lee Scullion Wedding Photographer

.

.

Lee Scullion Wedding Photographer

.

.
Any really memorable weddings that you have captured?

.

Every single one of them, young and old, they are all stylish and beautiful.  I never forget my weddings.
.

.

Lee Scullion Wedding Photographer

.

.

Are you married?

.

I am not married! A little rule I have now is every time someone asks me that question, it gets delayed a month…

.

.

Lee Scullion Wedding Photographer   .

.

..Lee Scullion Wedding Photographer

.

.
What sets you apart from other wedding photographers?

.

I am great believer in tailoring your technique to each wedding.  Every wedding is different so stay stylish but don’t repeat what you do all the time.  I like to think I always stay fresh. I also travel internationally and work with some fantastic people overseas, so do not be afraid to inquire if you are getting married in Ibiza, Croatia or Mars.

.

.
What can a couple who book you expect on the day?

.

Me and no one else.

.

I like to consider myself a professional, so I am loud, fun and fast but also quiet, slow and steady when needed. Timing is essential on your wedding day, your photographer has to co-ordinate it at a professional level.

.

.

Lee Scullion Wedding Photographer

.

.
What is included in your "package"?

.

Again similar to what sets me apart, tailoring to each couple’s needs is key.  I truly believe you have to accommodate what your soon to be close friends really want out of their wedding photographs.

.

.
Can you give us an idea on price?

.

My time coverage begins at £799 upwards, I work only with the best products out there.

.

.
