Peaches & Cream! A Real Wedding In The North East – Cheryl & Peter

It’s rubbish being back at work after the long weekend isn’t it?!  And yes, it’s still rubbish even if you get to look at beautiful weddings all day long like I do – there’s always admin and invoicing to do in any business people… and let’s got even touch on VAT returns!

.

So, it’s safe to say that we’ll all probably be in need of a pick-me-up.  Right about now.

.

Lucky for us, Cheryl and Peter’s gorgeous Real Wedding in the North East is a little ray of sunshine with pretty smiles, a pretty venue, pretty styling, and, well, just about pretty everything really.  So let’s prettify our Tuesday afternoon, and be inspired!

.

And go on, why not reach for the biscuit tin too? After the sugar fest that is the Easter weekend, surely more chocolate can’t really hurt us?!

.

Cheryl says:  Peter asked me to marry him on 4th September 2011 at my parents’ home (it was my parents’ wedding anniversary).  We were married on 7th October 2012 at Beamish Hall in County Durham.

We chose the venue as we loved the grand appearance from the outside and the traditional yet modern features of the inside. The big bay windows and the beautiful chandeliers won us over.  In keeping with the venue, we opted for a modern vintage theme, with a simple yet pretty colour scheme of ivory with pearls and lace and antique rose bridesmaid dresses.

I chose a dress by Madeline Gardner New York for Mori Lee from Brides Dream.  It was an understated lace dress with a modern twist.  My gorgeous headpiece was by What Katy Did Next. 

.

The bridesmaids’ dresses were from Purely Bridesmaids and our groomsmen hired suits from Gavin Scott Menswear.

I carried a mixture of roses in ivory and creams and a touch of vintage pink to match the bridesmaids by Nature’s Gift.  The bouquet was kept very neat and feminine with stalks on show with a mix of hessian and lace as a bow.

The ceremony was also held at the Hall and we chose to have a candle ceremony where there are three candles, two lit from the beginning to represent the two families and the our mothers were asked to light the centre candle which represented the families coming together.

We had a harpist – Clare Bakewell -  to play ‘When You Wish Upon A Star’ for the bridesmaids/groomsmen to enter to and then ‘Halo’ for my entrance. She stayed and played outside throughout the drinks reception too.

We hand made our table names using wooden plaques with pearl bows – and each table was a different Walt Disney quotation. 

.

.

.

.

We chose a gorgeous four tier wedding cake with two layers of fruit, a layer of sponge and a layer of chocolate (we couldn’t decide)!  The cake was iced in ivory with pearl drops and an edible vintage rose oversized bow on the top.  We also chose cake pop wedding favours from Olipops.  

.

.

We had unique bespoke ‘peg’ dolls made to stand by the cake and these actually looked like us! These were made by What Katy Did Next who also created our ring cushion.

For the evening entertainment we had a swing band – Jeff Dingle & the Moodswing Trio – who were amazing and I danced to ‘My Girl’ with my step-dad and our first dance was Paolo Nutini’s “Loving you”.

My top tip for other Brides Up North would be to enjoy every minute of your day, take it all in and appreciate all of your loved ones coming together.

A DIY Dream: A Real Wedding In Cheshire – Natasha & Kevin

January 29th, 2013 | Julia Braime

.

Kanashay Photography

.

.

Another extremely beautiful Real Wedding celebration to get Tuesday off to a beautiful start? Ah, go on then.

.

Natasha and Kevin’s home spun Cheshire wedding is full of perfect details, little surprises and gorgeous personal touches.  These childhood sweethearts certainly know how to throw a good party!  With beautiful images by Kanashay Photography, let’s join the love birds on their big day…

.

Natasha says:  Kev and I are childhood sweethearts, together since our early teens. I was convinced that I would know when he was going to propose, especially after more than 10 years together, but somehow he still managed to surprise me.

.

Kev proposed whilst we were on holiday in the South of France in the beautiful town of Carcassonne where he had booked us an amazing little villa to stay in. Kev often arranges lovely treats like this for us to do so I had absolutely no idea what was coming.  A few days into our holiday Kev suggested we went for a walk around a near by chateau. There wasn’t another person on the grounds that day, and I remember thinking what a beautiful and romantic place it was. We strolled around hand in hand, until we reached a picturesque stone staircase overlooking the entire grounds of the chateau, there Kev got down on one knee and with tears in his eyes asked if I would marry him, and after much squeaking, squealing and crying I of course said yes!

.

We were married at Peover Golf Club, Cheshire, on Friday 19th October 2012.  The moment that we walked into Peover Golf Club we knew instantly that this was the venue for us. We had already put it on the short list after spying it on the internet, but it was even more beautiful in the flesh and exactly what we wanted. The timber frames, fairy lights and climbing plants give the venue that natural and rustic look we were after, suiting our personalities and taste down to the ground.

.

.

.

I’m not sure there was a theme as such, we just knew that we wanted lots of natural and rustic elements and some DIY projects. We definitely didn’t want any fuss or bling!

.

Our wedding invitations featured a hand painted autumnal tree and bird cage on brown recycled card, decorated with lace and twine. This look, along with my obsession with bunting, pretty much continued throughout the rest of the wedding process.

.

We kept almost everything secret from the majority of our friends and family as I wanted them to have some surprises on the day.

.

.

Kanashay Photography

.

We opted for a sage green colour to fit in the the rustic and natural look. The bridesmaids wore this colour and sage green sashes were tied around we wooden chairs in the venue. We also added some splashes of dusty pink, creams and beige.

On the day I travelled with my Mum, Dad and three bridesmaids on a fabulous Charabanc bus supplied by Horgans Cars. It wasn’t at all traditional but it was really important to me that we all travelled together and I’m so glad we did. We laughed all the way to the venue, it’s a memory I will always treasure.

.

.

Kanashay Photography

.

.

I got to try on so many wedding dresses in my search for the perfect dress, which I loved! However, I’m one of those girls that had already decided upon the kind of wedding dress I would wear years before. I knew exactly what it was supposed to look like and how it should fit , so I started to feel a little disheartened when with less than 6 months to go I still hadn’t found MY dress. Luckily a friend asked if I would model some bridal wear for a local shop, it was only through doing this that I got talking to the shop owner to whom I described my dream dress and as if my magic she thought she may have the dress for me. One week later my dream dress was ordered. Hooray! I choose a Mori Lee wedding dress by Madeline Gardner, which was supplied by the lovely ladies at Zyra Bridal Wear. They altered and changed the dress so it looked just the way I had hoped.

.

I would suggest that any bride who knows what they want, to keep pursuing it. I was told by many bridal boutiques that the type of dress I was looking for would either be unsuitable for my frame or that they didn’t supply what I was looking for. Keep looking you WILL find your dress, and you WILL have that moment when you just know it was meant for you.

.

.

Our bridesmaids wore sage green silk chiffon dresses from Coast, while the groomsmen wore light grey three piece lounge suits which were purchased from Hightown Menswear, Sandbach.

.

.

I carried a bouquet of white hydrangeas and gypsophila, it looked just the way I wanted- simple and pretty.

My cousin Sam played his acoustic guitar during the ceremony, which was just beautiful and so touching. We also choose two poems which were read by my bridesmaids and my sister in law Yvonne.

There are just SO many favourite moments from the day…  the feeling I had as we said our vows and as we were pronounced man and wife was out of this world. Sneaking off for our little photo shoot and getting to spend some quiet time together, and Kev’s speech, it was just beautiful!

.

Booking our photographer (Kanashay Photography) was seriously one of the best decisions we made. She was utterly fabulous throughout the day and I think the photographs speak for themselves!

Our wedding was a real DIY project and we had just 9 months to do it in! We hand painted the tree design on each invitation for our day guests and made each brown paper package to hold their wedding favours.

I also panted a large canvas with a tree, on which our wedding guests were asked to add a green fingerprint to represent a leaf, and sign their name.

.

.

Kanashay Photography

.

.

We had a wish tree, that we attached handmade paper flowers, wooden hearts, pearls and buttons buttons to. Our guests then wrote us messages on luggage tags and attached them to the branches.

.

We spent lots of time sorting through old pictures of friends and family to place in a specially made photo album entitled ‘a trip down memory lane’, for guests to enjoy.

.

.

Kanashay Photography

.

.

Kev’s mum very kindly sewed yards of beautiful bunting using material sourced from local charity shops, which was hung all over the venue.

.

The flowers used to decorate the venue were collected from the local market and arranged the day before the wedding by myself and Kev’s mum. We displayed flowers and candles in various sized jam jars, which were decorated with lace and ribbon.

.

My Mum did a wonderful job of making a basket full of pretty confetti cones for our guests to throw.

.

.

Kanashay Photography

.

.

A number of sweet jars, fir cones, acorns, tree bark and tins decorated with hessian, containing flowers were also dotted about the venue. I seemed to tie bows of twine to everything and made hundreds of birdcage labels, but it was all worth it in the end!  Dreamweavers Weddings were invaluable in helping us to create the look we wanted.

.

.

Kanashay Photography

.

.

We opted for a cheese celebration cake as we much prefer cheese to cake. It also fitted in nicely with the rustic feel of the wedding and went down really well with the guests who almost ate the entire thing!

.

.

Kanashay Photography

.

.

We used Olive Tree Catering for our wedding breakfast and evening selection. The food they serve is of such a high standard and completely delicious we simply HAD to have them on our big day.

For the evening reception we booked the very talented Kurt Davies, who entertained us with two live sets performing songs we had chosen and a disco. The dance floor was NEVER empty!  We also had props available for guests to play about with which lead to some hilarious photos being taken.

.

.

We honeymooned in Florence Italy, very soon after the wedding. It was a wonderful place to begin our married life.

.

.

Kanashay Photography

.

.

My top tip for other Brides Up North is that if you want lots of DIY elements at your wedding you need to start asap as it will definitely take longer than think. I would also recommend that you book an excellent photographer (like ours!) and get a video camera to capture the day, as once its all over it’s those are the things you will treasure most – along with your lovely new spouse!

Kay says: Earlier in the spring, I decided to have a new website built to showcase my new vintage inspired Hollywood Glamour range. I needed some super glam photos to show my unique range of shrugs and boleros. I chose husband and wife team Keith & Jenny McAvoy as I had worked with them last year on their Hollywood Vogue shoot at the Belle Epoque, I found The McAvoys were so professional and so easy to work with, l knew they were the perfect choice.

My new vintage range includes Wrapor shrugs and boleros made from sumptuous fabrics such as vintage style lace, velvety fur and show stopping ostrich feathers and I needed beautiful dresses to compliment them. I contacted Debbie from Glamour Bridal & Prom bridal boutique in Bolton who was happy to oblige and very kindly let me choose some of her gorgeous gowns, I was like a child in a sweet shop! We chose Fay by Madeline Gardner, Claire by Sincerity Bridal, Alice by Charlotte Balbier and Loveheart by Charlotte Balbier.

A Beauty of a Boutique! Supplier Showcase – The Harrogate Wedding Lounge

July 10th, 2011 | Julia Braime

.

Yorkshire ladies.  Stop. Right. There.  Before you even think about ordering your wedding gown, pay my lovely friend Hayley at The Harrogate Wedding Lounge a visit.  This wedding blogger wants to move in to Hayley’s gorgeous boutique and sit on her flumpy sofas, flicking through planning guides and ogling the gorgeous wedding dresses forever more!  That ok with you Hayley?

.

.

Brides Up North Wedding Blog: The Harrogate Wedding Lounge

.

.

Anyway.  Let’s talk shop.

.

.

Brides Up North Wedding Blog: The Harrogate Wedding Lounge

.

.

When did The Harrogate Wedding Lounge open and what is your background?

.
I opened The Harrogate Wedding Lounge on 29th May 2009.

.
After taking voluntary redundancy from my full time job in Leeds I decided it was time to do something I loved. I had my own wedding planning business which was growing and developing nicely on a part time basis and I decided this was the route I wanted to take. The wedding industry is such a lovely industry to work in and bridal fashion and trends were always my favourite part. When an opportunity presented itself to move into existing premises currently used as a bridal shop it just seemed like fate had dealt me a hand. We completely overhauled the then existing shop in just 6 weeks. We replaced all of the designers and stock and created a beautiful, welcoming and homely shop brides can be proud to visit.    

.

.

What lines of wedding gowns do you stock?

.
We are very proud to stock some of the industry’s leading names including Maggie Sottero, Ronald Joyce, Madeline Gardner and Justin Alexander Signature.  The designers and their gowns have all been handpicked by us for their quality, structure, fine fabrics, attention to detail and because they are just that little bit different.      

.

.

Brides Up North Wedding Blog: The Harrogate Wedding Lounge

.

.

What lines of accessories do you stock?

.
We are well known for our accessories collection! Having gowns that are a bit different means we have to accessorise accordingly and we have great fun choosing our fabulous designs to complement our gowns. We stock everything from birdcage veils to Art Deco and vintage inspired head bands and tiaras. We have lace veils, short funky veils and cathedral veils from industry leaders like Richard Designs. We also have an amazing collection of bridal jewellery from the fabulous award winning Chez Bec (a wedding blog Featured Supplier), stunning vintage inspired headwear and jewellery by Madeline Isaac James and plenty of glam shoes from the likes of Rainbow Couture, Rainbow Club and Shades. We also have lots of quirky extras like “Weddington” Boots, bespoke garters exclusive to The Harrogate Wedding Lounge, parasols, wraps and jackets in lots of fabrics and styles. One of my favourites is the Milan wrap pictured below its so glamorous!           

.

.
Where are you located?

.
We are located on the main A59 Between Harrogate and Knaresborough only a 30 minute drive from either Leeds or York and a big bonus is we have free parking – either at the side of our shop or in the small residential cul-de-sac next to our shop.

.

.

Brides Up North Wedding Blog: The Harrogate Wedding Lounge

Annabelle

.

.
Can you give Brides Up North an idea on price?

.
Our gowns start from around £800 for some of our lightweight more destination style gowns and our top end is currently £2,200.  We do add to our collections all the time but this is the usual price range you would expect to pay for one of our gowns. Accessories start from £70 for veils, £90 for headbands/tiaras and shoes by Rainbow Couture start from £115. 

.

.

.
Do Brides Up North need an appointment?

.
We work on an appointment basis to make sure each and every bride gets the undivided attention she deserves. You won’t have to share a changing area, nor sit with other people’s relatives at this special time. At The Harrogate Wedding Lounge we pride ourselves on our personal service and we only ever see one bride at a time. We also give you a generous appointment time of 90 minutes so you can take your time and really enjoy this wonderful experience.     

.

Hadley

.

.
What can Brides Up North expect when they come in for an appointment?

.
At your first appointment we will sit down and have an initial discussion. We get to know the facts: when is the wedding, where, are you having any bridesmaids, what’s your dress budget etc, then we discuss what you have tried on to date, what you like and don’t like and we talk you through our collections. You are then left to browse the rails for a few minutes while we prepare refreshments for you and your party. We have pink fizz, bucks fizz, orange juice, tea & coffee with a selection of flavoured syrups and lovely little treats to eat. We then review your selection with you, possibly throw in a couple of wild cards of our choice and get on with creating a stunning wedding day look. If at the end of your appointment you require some thinking time there is no pressure, we simply make a note of your favourite gowns and accessories on one of our beautiful keep sake cards and send you away to sleep on it.    

.

Lidia

.

.
What is your current favourite gown that you stock and why?

.
Oh no! I hate that question because we handpick all of our gowns at selected shows throughout the year and it is so difficult to select one as my favourite, I love them all in their own way. My very favourites include the Maggie Sottero Geneva because it has so much amazing detail you just can’t stop looking at it! Maggie Sottero Annabelle is a beautiful fitting dress that is very elegant but also a bit sexy. The Ronald Joyce Lidia has the ability to make any bride feel like a true princess.    

.

.    
Is there a particular style of dress that is popular with your brides at the moment?

.
A key trend at the moment is backless gowns, they are really popular this season. Glamorous gowns like the Ronald Joyce Sable are a real hit and the Maggie Sottero Bernadette with its beautiful key hole back and lace shoulders is a gorgeous twist on a classic shape. For a more lightweight style or a beach wedding the Caprice is unbeatable! It’s cool, sassy, understated and elegant all in one.  

.

.

Nora

.

.
How does The Harrogate Wedding Lounge provide a superior experience to other wedding dress boutiques?

.
We are a down to earth friendly team of females who absolutely love what we do! This isn’t just a job for us – we genuinely are so excited about helping you plan your dream day whether that be just your gown, our help with finding other fabulous suppliers or helping with styling ideas too. We are much more than just a dress shop. We offer each bride our personal one to one service too with enhances this special experience.  

.

.

Brides Up North Wedding Blog: The Harrogate Wedding Lounge

.

.
Do you stock Bridesmaid Dresses?

.
We hold around 20 great selling styles from Ronald Joyce in a fantastic selection of colours and fabrics. We don’t stipulate that you have to buy your bridal gown from us either so if you already have your dress you are still welcome to come and view our range of gowns for your best girls. We normally recommend a dedicated bridesmaid appointment and not doing it at the end of your bridal appointment. It adds a sense of occasion for your bridesmaids and means we get to concentrate on you all individually too.   
.

.

We hear you offer planning consultations – can you tell Brides Up North a bit about that?

.
We offer our popular Wedding Lounge “Sessions” – these are a perfect way to gather your nearest and dearest who you would like to help with the planning process. Mums and bridesmaids often chip in to give this as a gift to the bride to get her started on the planning. It really is an informal evening full of ideas and advice to set you on your way. The evening is a 3 hour workshop with drinks and treats and offers you great tools along the way. Including guest trackers, budget planners, helpful websites, wedding blogs, planning advice and a few other surprises too! Our planning sessions represent great value at £179 and they will get you off to a fantastic start with the planning aiming to make things clearer in your head.    

.

.

Brides Up North Wedding Blog: The Harrogate Wedding Lounge

.

.
What did you wear on your wedding day?  What would you choose to wear now?

.
My dress was very different, it was actually green! Is was by a designer called Catherine Jane and was a two tone shot silk. It shone lots of colours from peacock blue to rich yellow tones, I loved it. I would probably wear something very different now I love the Maggie Sottero Nora dress, it has a low waist so helps to pull in your tummy and it has a real fairytale feel without being too cumbersome to move in. It is very sparkly too .

.

How can Brides Up North get in touch with you/ find out more?

.
We can be contacted by phone on 01423 888 242 10am – 5pm Monday to Saturday or you can email us on  info@theharrogateweddinglounge.com  There is also an appointment request service on our website www.theharrogateweddinglounge.com Fill in the form with your desired date and time and we will call you back with the options.
