Today’s real wedding is city chic at its best, as we escape to Sheffield for an informal, relaxed wedding in the midst of this summer’s heatwave. Prepare for lots of hidden backstreet shots and colourful graffiti for something unconventional and truly memorable!

Holly and James tied the knot at the impressive Sheffield Town Hall in July before celebrating with friends at the uber cool Tamper Coffee. Yep, coffee lovers, you read that right – a coffee shop, inspired by New Zealand’s café culture no less, provides the endearing backdrop to our featured wedding today. And it’s giving us a heady dose of urban wedding day envy!

Opting for a navy, white and yellow colour scheme (nothing at all to do with a certain football club…), the couple complemented this palette with pared back decorations (hello there on-trend Polaroids), a stunning three-tiered cake and beautiful blooms. So, grab a cuppa and settle in as we reminisce with Holly about the couple’s big day and find out more about their ever-so-special details…

holly says: We got engaged on 3rd June 2017 in Bramhall Park. James had wanted to go to visit Bramhall Hall for months, so we went for a picnic and he surprised me by asking me to marry him.

We got married on 28th July 2018 – James is a teacher so we wanted to get married in the summer holidays so we could go straight on our honeymoon.

Our ceremony was in the Ceremony Rooms at Sheffield Town Hall and our reception venue was Tamper Coffee. We wanted a laidback informal day with venues close to each other and these two were perfect.

We didn’t really have a theme, we just knew we wanted a low-key relaxed day. We went for navy, white and yellow colour scheme – largely because we felt they looked good, but James will tell you it is because they are the colours of Leeds United!

My dress was by Amanda Wyatt from Once Upon a Bride in Hyde. I went in with one idea of the dress I wanted but when I tried my dress on, I couldn’t stop smiling so knew it was the right choice!

James wore a navy three-piece suit from Slaters. The groomsmen wore their own navy suits and they had matching yellow socks and ties. My bridesmaids, meanwhile, wore navy dresses from ASOS.

To get your week off to a pretty start, we’re sharing with you Elizabeth and Rory’s elegant wedding day that took place in Yorkshire.

Deciding to stick with tradition for their ceremony, Elizabeth and Rory picked the church connected to their son’s school in which to say their ‘I dos’. Once wed the bride, groom and their guests then all enjoyed a marquee reception in a rural location which boasted beautiful countryside views.

elizabeth says: We got engaged in October 2014. We’d been over visiting Rory’s friend in Cheshire for the weekend and we went out to Peckforton Castle. We were in the great hall when Rory said ‘look at that over there’ and pointed at some coats of arms on the wall. When I turned back around he was on one knee! Our little boy who was five at the time got down on one knee with him too, totally unrehearsed and unprompted. Rory proposed with his mum’s engagement ring. Sadly she’d lost a two year battle with cancer a month earlier so it was pretty emotional.

We were married on 26th September 2015, at Hoylandswaine Church and then had our reception in a marquee supplied by Black Cherry Events, at Smallshaw Farm Cottages in Millhouse Green, near Sheffield. I always wanted to get married in a church and we chose Hoylandswaine as it’s the church connected to our son’s school. It meant a lot as it’s where we go for his harvest festival, carol concert etc. It’s not our parish church but I went to services regularly to ensure we were eligible.
