Sunbleached. A Pronovias Gown For A Real Wedding At Newton Hall, Northumberland – Heather & Tom

October 3rd, 2013 | Julia Braime

Helen Russell Photography at Newton Hall

If you’ve woken up this morning to the certainty that Autumn/ Winter 2013 is most certainly here and commuted to the office under a veil of grey drizzle, don’t despair.  Firstly, there’s always the prospect of new boots and a new coat to cheer you up and secondly, today’s Real Wedding is certain to warm your cockles and lift your spirits.  With images by Brides Up North Featured Supplier Helen Russell Photography, Heather and Tom’s celebration is just beautiful

Helen Russell Photography

Heather says:  Tom was very nervous about the whole proposal situation and couldn’t stand the the thought of having to do it in front of lots of people. We had been together for just under 3 years and we had recently bought our first home together. We were going out to a family meal at Tom’s parents house, as I came down the stairs I thought Tom was tying his shoe lace until I saw him holding the ring box. We both cried a lot and it was absolutely perfect.

Helen Russell Photography

We were married on 26th August 2013 – bank holiday weekend – at the amazing Newton Hall.  We met in Spain when we were 18 and 19. I moved down to the Midlands when I was 21 to start a degree as well as to be with Tom. We both knew that the North East would be the perfect place to get married and a great place for all our relatives to be together for our day. I especially wanted to get married in my beloved North East. We looked at lots of venues but were always left feeling disappointed about one or more aspects of the venue. Newton Hall had the perfect combination of location, decor, gorgeous bedrooms, and a quirky and homely feel that we both loved.

I had several ideas (Tom gave me free run) of different looks that I liked and all of them had a very different feel. As the wedding got closer I found myself looking at a lot of rustic country weddings on blogs, I decided to create my own version of this. The dress I choose was lace so I wanted to incorporate that with a rustic element softened and made pretty by lots of flowers.

The wedding colour scheme was grey with a hint of mauve, pale pinks, whites and pale purples.

I bought my dress from a fabulous boutique called Silk based in Litchfield. I looked at lots of dresses and ended up going for a dress that was different to my initial ideas of what I wanted. The dress was a lace and tulle style by Pronovias. It was so beautiful and photographed really well.  Eliza Vale made my bespoke headpiece.

My bridesmaids wore Dessy dresses in luxe chiffon, they were in the colour stormy all from the fabulous Mia Sposa in Newcastle. They all picked the style of dress they preferred. I really wanted them to feel comfortable in their dress and not to feel like they had been made to where something that someone else liked. They all looked beautiful.

Lisa Jones did all the hair and make up, she is so talented and so speedy on the day.

All my suppliers were so good and I think they sometimes knew what vision was in my head better than I did.I used to work with Helen Russell Photography a long time before she was doing photography full-time, I came across her on the Brides Up North blog and contacted her straight away.

One Digital Image were our videographers, they were so professional and were like an extra pair of hands on the day.

Peaches and Queen made all my wonderful stationary and Mandy was my personal wedding counsellor.

The ceremony was beautiful. It was outside on the terrace, the sun was shining and it felt almost dreamlike, even a few white butterflies turned up and flew around me and Tom as we said our vows.

I carried a mixture of sweet peas, stocks, hydrangeas  with a couple of David Austin roses by Bels Flowers, they were beautiful. The Finishing Touch Company and Bels Flowers styled the venue to perfection.

We chose a three tier cake consisting of cookies and cream, lemon drizzle and chocolate fudge cake. The design was left up to The Designer Cake Company so we could have a little surprise on the day.

We had a piano player for the ceremony and the drinks reception, I would highly recommend him his name is Jack Hamilton based in Morpeth. In the evening we had a fun D.J called Simon Robertson from One Voice Productions Ltd, he played a great selection of music.

We had fish, chips and mushy peas to fit in with the sea-side theme, it went down so well with every one, no food was left on anyone’s plate.

I was stressing about the honeymoon spending a lot of time on the internet trying to find the perfect destination. I got so confused by the choice I asked Tom to make the difficult decision. He picked San Francisco and Las Vegas, it was the trip of a lifetime with lots of treasured memories.

My top tip for other Brides Up North would be to start to delegate jobs in the last few weeks otherwise it will all get on top of you.  My final tip is to try on your knickers before the big day (mine didn’t fit)!

Congratulations Heather & Tom!

Eye Candy: Justin Alexander 2014 Collection

August 21st, 2013 | Julia Braime

Justin Alexander 2014 Collection

Fancy a little wedding dress hunting of a Wednesday?  I thought so.

Today’s 2014 collection sneak peek comes from the king of the swinging 1950’s style skirt, the great Justin Alexander.  This season, the label has added an art deco influence to their classically beautiful gowns.  There’s sparkle, there’s beading and there’s lashings of lace, tulle and plenty of silk.   

Even better? This is a brand with a strong Northern presence.  All dresses featured are or soon will be available to try on and buy at Brides Up North Featured Supplier Mia Sposa Bridal & Menswear, Newcastle Upon Tyne.

.

Usual service will recommence on 1st July 2013,  but in the meantime watch out for recaps of our favourite Real Weddings so far in 2013, plenty of eye candy, new features that we won’t be able to wait to share, some special supplier showcases and a couple of surprises too!

Steph says: We got engaged on 14th May 2011 in Newcastle – I had a long wait as we are childhood sweethearts who had been together for 11 years prior to our engagement!

We were married on 11th August 2012 at Crook Hall and Gardens which is a hidden gem in Durham. We had the venue until 6pm, we then went to the Gala Theatre in Durham for our evening reception.

Right from the start we wanted an informal and rustic wedding so we went on the search for a barn conversion… despite having the Northumberland countryside on our doorstep there appeared to be a gap in the market for this up North as we couldn’t find one! A friend recommended Crook Hall and Gardens and as soon as we went there for afternoon tea we were sold! It’s a beautiful and unique venue with the most stunning collection of gardens and quirky decor. The medieval hall that we were married in was the perfect substitute to a barn ceremony. Crook Hall was so different to any wedding venue we had previously visited and we instantly fell in love with how beautiful it was.

It took me ages to choose a colour scheme – I didn’t want to choose a colour at first as I thought it would limit me in the hunt to find bridesmaid dresses! Eventually we found some navy bridesmaid dresses and then through my obsession of scrolling through Pinterest I found a picture of a girl in a navy dress and yellow shoes. From this point my colour theme was navy and yellow! The bridesmaids wore navy dresses and mustard shoes, we had yellow in our flowers and yellow balloons!

It is a beautiful lace mermaid gown with a bateau neckline. The dress comes with a veil but I purchased a separate lace edged cathedral veil from Joyce Jackson called Orlando that I fell in love with in the bridal shop – Mia Sposa Bridal & Menswear in Newcastle.

The shoes were a beautiful vintage style lace up pair from Rainbow Club called Clara.

I loved the idea of homemade décor and personalised touches that we could keep hold of for years to come. We spent time searching craft markets for decorative inspiration and spent months collecting jam jars and milk bottles that we could decorate with lace, twine and buttons. My sister made old fashioned luggage tags and stamped them with messages and my friends and I made homemade raspberry jam as name places and favours. For our table names we painted the glass of old fashioned photo frames with black board paint and wrote the table names in chalk paint. We also hung slates in the gardens with extracts from our readings on and used an old fashioned vintage suitcase for our cards and gifts.

As we had the venue booked from 11.30 and our ceremony wasn’t until 12.30 we had lawn games for the guests to enjoy in the gardens as we wanted them to make the most of the venue and spend as much time there as possible.

We had decorations hanging from the trees and this made for some beautiful pictures when we were cutting the cake.  We used Ladybird Cakes from Tynemouth and had a three tier cake made of carrot cake, raspberry and white chocolate, and lemon sponge.

I absolutely loved the whole day and it genuinely exceeded all my expectations! However there are two parts of the day that stand out as my favourite. The first being when my friends and I are having fun in the gardens while trying to find our way through the maze with the balloons.  We used two yellow balloons to add an element of fun, a flash of colour and we also wanted it to express our informal theme of the day. It provided some excellent photo opportunities!  There is a great photo of my friends who surprisingly all agreed to lie down in the grass to capture an amazing photo of their legs poking above the flowers!

.

My other favourite part was when Dan and I managed to have time with just the two of us in the gardens as the sun was setting – Sean has managed to capture the most amazing pictures we could have ever asked for! You spend most of your wedding day speaking to everyone else but each other so it was nice to have some time to savour the moment and enjoy our own company as Mr and Mrs!

.

.

Sean Elliott Photography

.

As part of our photography package we purchased the Photo Peg to entertain the evening guests. This was an excellent alternative to a photo booth! Polaroid pictures were taken of the guests holding a large vintage frame and they held up a chalk board with a message for us. The polaroid’s were then pegged on a ‘washing line’ and at the end of the night the guests could take the pictures home as a keepsake. 

.

We used Colin Cook – The North East Wedding DJ who provided our evening entertainment and mood up-lighting and The Vintage Tea Company for hire of bunting, cake stands and crockery for our floral decorations in the evening venue.

.

.

Sean Elliott Photography

.

.

After the wedding we honeymooned in Thailand – we spent time in Bangkok, Koh Samui and Koh Phangan.

.

.

Sean Elliott Photography

.

.

My top tip for other Brides Up North is don’t feel pressure to conform to the norm! Our wedding may not have been the most traditional but we made it personal to us and we made sure that it was fun! Make sure you set time aside in the day to spend time with each other – you’ll be surprised how little you’ll see of each other!! Spend time searching for an amazing photographer… Sean has taken the most beautiful and unique pictures which has provided us with memories to last a lifetime!

.

Congratulations Steph & Dan!

Supplier Showcase: By Gina Jewellery In A Styled Bridal Shoot At Woodhill Hall, Northumberland

May 31st, 2013 | Julia Braime

.

Wahey!  Friday’s only gone and bloomin’ landed!  Why is it that the week following a Bank Holiday always seems longer (and busier!) than ever?

.

I’ll be collapsing in an event planning induced stupor – did you know it’s our last luxury wedding exhibition of the season next Sunday at Sarah Beeny’s Rise Hall (finishing with flair – click here for all the details!) – but whatever your plans for the weekend (anyone getting wed? hands up!) I hope it’s filled with glamour and glitter, just like this cute and colourful little styled shoot by Brides Up North Featured Supplier By Gina Jewellery to show off her handmade twinkly things. 

.

With some help from some of my very favourite Featured Suppliers and North East wedding industry friends, the result is a little pop of sparkle to start your Friday off beautifully!

.

Gina says:  I organised the shoot to showcase my jewellery but also the amazing venue Woodhill Hall, which hadn’t been used in a photo shoot before. I wanted to do something a little different from the usual head and shoulder shots of jewellery so hunted all over Pinterest for some inspiration and to show Phil Smith Photography the sort of style I was looking for. Luckily, Phil and I have very similar ideas of what works and he came up with some more excellent ideas. I loved the quirkiness of Woodhill and wanted to use their wallpaper and scenic views in the shoot. I have seen so many ‘vintage’ shoots about that I wanted to use the jewellery as a focus rather than a specific style.

The day was excellent.!  We had been forecast for rain all day but when we got up to Otterburn the sun was shining but it was blowing a gale! Phil and I had a walk around the venue and discussed shots and locations and a few extra ideas we had for getting some excellent shots. There aren’t a lot of stairs at Woodhill, but when  you run up and down them at least 50 times an hour it seems likes there are a lot more!

.

Phil and I were both very keen to get some shots on a sofa outside… the only problem being the sofa was brand new, the walls had just been painted and papered and the doorframe didn’t have an inch spare! After a lot of debate the sofa went outdoors and we prayed that the heavens didn’t open we were lucky and the shots were so worth it!

Since the photo shoot, we have had a bit of news. My other half accepted a promotion meaning we will be moving to Colchester in August. I will still be making and selling jewellery and the great news is that AJ Bridalwear in Newburn is now a stockist of my jewellery, so I will still have jewellery in the North East! I’m going to miss it up here, but I will be up every month or so and so will be able to keep up with what is happening in the region.

As we had the venue booked from 11.30 and our ceremony wasn’t until 12.30 we had lawn games for the guests to enjoy in the gardens as we wanted them to make the most of the venue and spend as much time there as possible.

We had decorations hanging from the trees and this made for some beautiful pictures when we were cutting the cake.  We used Ladybird Cakes from Tynemouth and had a three tier cake made of carrot cake, raspberry and white chocolate, and lemon sponge.

I absolutely loved the whole day and it genuinely exceeded all my expectations! However there are two parts of the day that stand out as my favourite. The first being when my friends and I are having fun in the gardens while trying to find our way through the maze with the balloons.  We used two yellow balloons to add an element of fun, a flash of colour and we also wanted it to express our informal theme of the day. It provided some excellent photo opportunities!  There is a great photo of my friends who surprisingly all agreed to lie down in the grass to capture an amazing photo of their legs poking above the flowers!

.

My other favourite part was when Dan and I managed to have time with just the two of us in the gardens as the sun was setting – Sean has managed to capture the most amazing pictures we could have ever asked for! You spend most of your wedding day speaking to everyone else but each other so it was nice to have some time to savour the moment and enjoy our own company as Mr and Mrs!

As part of our photography package we purchased the Photo Peg to entertain the evening guests. This was an excellent alternative to a photo booth! Polaroid pictures were taken of the guests holding a large vintage frame and they held up a chalk board with a message for us. The polaroid’s were then pegged on a ‘washing line’ and at the end of the night the guests could take the pictures home as a keepsake. 

.

We used Colin Cook – The North East Wedding DJ who provided our evening entertainment and mood up-lighting and The Vintage Tea Company for hire of bunting, cake stands and crockery for our floral decorations in the evening venue.

.

.

After the wedding we honeymooned in Thailand – we spent time in Bangkok, Koh Samui and Koh Phangan.

.

.

.

.

My top tip for other Brides Up North is don’t feel pressure to conform to the norm! Our wedding may not have been the most traditional but we made it personal to us and we made sure that it was fun! Make sure you set time aside in the day to spend time with each other – you’ll be surprised how little you’ll see of each other!! Spend time searching for an amazing photographer… Sean has taken the most beautiful and unique pictures which has provided us with memories to last a lifetime!

Congratulations Steph & Dan!

Diary Date: NEXT WEEKEND! Mia Sposa Bridal & Menswear Launch Event

January 6th, 2013 | Julia Braime

.

I’ve worked with long time Brides Up North Featured Suppliers Joy and Mark of Mia Sposa Bridal & Menswear since the launch of the wedding blog way back in 2010, and so was thrilled to be invited along to their brand new premises in Newcastle Upon Tyne recently to see the space for myself.

.

Take it from me, this new boutique is something else!  Huge dressing rooms, lofty showrooms and dedicated areas for bridesmaids and menswear – it felt more like a chic loft in Manhattan’s fashion district than your average bridal boutique.  Get ready to strut your stuff!

.

Average is something that Mia Sposa are not: if you are in the market for a gorgeous gown, with exceptional service levels and are based in the North East, then make Blandford Square the first stop on your search.  

.

And - BONUS! – they also want to ply you with Champagne and canapés as they celebrate 10 years of business, showcase their new collections (like the gorgeous Pronovias gowns showcased in this post – all available on site) and the launch of their new boutique next weekend!

.

.

Mia Sposa Bridal & Menswear Launch Weekend

.

.

Joy says: We are thrilled to be showcasing our gorgeous new boutique, latest collections and also celebrating 10 years helping brides and grooms in the region with a re-launch event on Friday 11th – Sunday 13th January 2013 at Blandford Square in Newcastle Upon Tyne – by appointment only.   

.

We have a few bridal appointments left for Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th January and would love to meet Brides Up North readers and help them to celebrate with a glass of bubbly too.

.

We are working with our trusted wedding suppliers Karen McGowran , Daisychain Events , Burnett 4 Cakes, ND Make Up and Greener Interiors who are setting up inspirational displays over the weekend in the boutique.

Sports & Sweeties! A Styled Wedding Inspiration Shoot In The North East

May 29th, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

This morning I was up with the lark and off in the motor to assist on a shoot at a very exciting private new wedding venue that I am thrilled to be working with shortly.  I’ll be back soon to share some gorgeous images and tell you more, but until then, I’ll leave you with a fun and fabulous mini wedding inspiration shoot in the North East, send to me by friend of the wedding blog Kerry of Daisychain Events

.

A Wedding Inspiration Shoot at Kingston Park by Xtraordinary Photography

.

.

Kerry says: After working on a couple of inspiration shoots with some amazing North East suppliers, I was keen to give it another go as I really enjoy the whole creative process of starting with a mood board and then developing the ideas and culminating in an amazing shoot!

This shoot was one which came about through Emma from Little Bundles Bunting when she was chatting with Shelley who is the events coordinator at Newcastle Falcons Rugby Club. The club were planning a re launch of their wedding packages and wanted to promote it to potential brides and grooms. The venue has some fab spaces and is also one of the few in the North East large enough to cater for Asian weddings which often have in excess of 200 – 300 guests.

.

The theme was a no brainer and I chose the sports and sweeties theme so that we could highlight the masculine image of the venue and the rugby element with a girlie edge.

The day of the shoot was fabulous and everyone pitched in to help with setting up shots. We even had a little helper in the form of Jamie’s two year old daughter who thoroughly enjoyed herself running around the function rooms trying to grab sweeties before eventually falling asleep!

.

We hope that by pulling together our ideas that couples can draw little snippets of inspiration for their own day.   We are now looking at doing another shoot in the near future with a completely different and altogether more theatrical theme! Watch this space!

A Vintage Style Moroccan Love Story – A Styled Wedding Inspiration Shoot In The North East

February 20th, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

Xtraordinary Photography

.

.

Happy Monday Brides Up North! With temperatures set to soar this week (after this cold snap a predicted 15 degrees Celsius is going to feel totally tropical!) I thought it was time for a burst of Moorish sunshine here on the wedding blog too!  This styled wedding inspiration shoot from wedding stationery designer Poppy of Papaver Designs and a group of very talented North East wedding industry suppliers took place in Durham in mid January, but you might just as easily be on location in Marrakech!

.

Let the sun shine!

.

Poppy says: Both Vintage and Middle Eastern patterns play a huge part in my influences and always end up in my work somewhere. From posy florals to henna inspired designs, I love the patterns and colours from both. The contrast of the bright Moroccan colours against the soft pastels of vintage really works well together.

The Moroccan meets vintage photo shoot was to launch a new range of lanterns from Papaver Designs and to introduce a new mini sized lantern for place names. The lanterns have multiple uses including hanging from trees, place settings, table decoration and venue decoration but can also be used as gifts for any special occasion.

2012 has been the start of lots of new ideas for Papaver Designs and I wanted to start it off with an amazing photo shoot and a re-vamp of the website too. The Papaver Designs blog has been increasingly popular with each week bringing a new paper make called ‘Wednesday’s Wonders’ and has proved very popular with ideas for DIY brides.

The photo shoot took place on a very cold Tuesday morning on top of a hill outside The Black Horse, Beamish (the location for the first Brides Up North Tweet Up North East!). The Black Horse is situated in picturesque grounds and hosts wedding receptions as well as being famous for its gastro bar menu.

.

.

The shoot was not only about Papaver Designs, I wanted to show that the North East is full of talented business owners and really wanted to show off what we can do. They not only donated their products and services but gave props and their time to help out on the day.  I was in awe, and have spent the last few weeks being overwhelmed at the generosity of people.

The day of the shoot was amazing fun and was a great laugh even if the weather was in minus numbers! You would never have believed it from the photos but Laura (the gorgeous model) was frozen.

.

I am so pleased with how the photos have turned out and could not have asked for a more perfect team to work with. The photos really do speak for themselves.
