Bluebells & Sparkle. A Real Engagement In North Yorkshire – Amy & Daniel

July 16th, 2013 | Julia Braime

Is anyone still out there, or have you all knocked off early to go and sip Pimms in the park?  Well, despite the sunshine, some of us are still here and staying loyal to the cause – fuelling that Northern Revolution and bringing you a double daily dose of wedding inspiration, supplier showcases and lovely love stories.  It’s always sunny at Brides Up North. 

.

This afternoon we join Amy, Dan, their two furry friends and photographer Abi of Wooden Hill Images for a sun dappled walk in the woods, as they share their engagement news. 

.

Abi says:  How could anyone not be inspired by the seasons?  Late spring in the bluebell woods was a natural choice for Daniel and Amy who are marrying at Whinstone View, Great Ayton next May.

.

A gift from their parents, Amy and Daniel wanted natural shots and wished to take their dogs along too, so we all set off on a walk.  Daniel had admitted to being hesitant about having his picture taken, but by the end was really enjoying himself!  We went to Silston woods, near Northallerton, the most beautiful unspoilt walk with a carpet of velvety bluebells and dappled morning sunlight through the trees.

Amy says:  Daniel and I met in my hometown in North Yorkshire.  He was from Australia, visiting family and playing football and I was completing my A levels. We kind of always felt like it was meant to be, who knew that two people from opposite ends of the earth meet in this small town and that would be it?!

.

We got engaged September 22nd 2012. Daniel proposed to me on Estepona beach whilst we were on holiday in Spain. It was very sweet and romantic. We had been together for seven years and I was beginning to think it would never happen, so I was very excited when he asked and all I wanted to do was grab random people off the beach to show them my ring and share our news! He asked for my parents blessing beforehand which was so lovely and nobody else knew! He even picked out the perfect ring by himself. That evening we celebrated drinking beautiful champagne by the pool at our hotel, looking out over the mountains.

This engagement shoot was a surprise gift secretly organised by my parents and Abi! It is lovely to have engagement photos, especially in May, which is the month we will be tying the knot. After some discussion with Abi it was thought that the bluebells would look lovely at this time of year and we decided to do the shoot in a local wood which was filled with bluebells.

We really wanted to capture our lives at this moment in time and felt we should keep it casual so we just wore jeans and T.shirts. Our dogs, Indie & Ash are important to us and a big part of our life and so they came along with us, in fact I think they may have out shone us!

This engagement shoot was such a fantastic opportunity to work with Abi before our big day. Not only is she an amazing photographer, producing the most beautiful images but she is so friendly and calming, we had so much fun and we cannot wait for our wedding day!

Lavender’s Blue: Amanda Wyatt For A Real Wedding At Priory Cottages, North Yorkshire – Amy & Luke

July 1st, 2013 | Julia Braime

.

Richard Wynn Davies

.

.

It’s right back to business with our double daily blogging schedule here at Brides Up North, and my goodness do I have some gorgeous to share with you over the next few months. 

.

Let’s start off as we mean to go on, with Amy and Luke’s stunning wedding day at Priory Cottages near Wetherby.  Amy and Luke chose rustic details, beautiful blooms and a cool colour palette (not to mention a gorgeous gown and some pretty snappy bow ties) to work with their fabulous lavender filled North Yorkshire venue.  I’m attending a celebration at Priory Cottages shortly – as a bridesmaid no less – and putting together today’s feature has made me itch with excitement for my friend’s own big day.

Amy says:  We got engaged on Easter Sunday 2012 up a mountain in Ambleside in the Lake District and were married on Easter Sunday 2013 at the beautiful Priory Cottages near Wetherby.

The venue was perfect. Everything was in the same place which we wanted so we didn’t have to worry about transport and lose some time of our day travelling.  We got married in the barn, had the drinks reception downstairs and outside in the courtyard, and then had the meal and dancing in the marquee. We all (family) stayed in the cottages surrounding the venue so it was really relaxed on the day and we had seen each other in the morning of the wedding.

.

Serena who runs Priory Cottages is amazing and becomes your best friend during the wedding planning.

I chose an Amanda Wyatt dress from Mia Sposa in Cambridge. It was quite slim fitting, the bottom half was quite plain and it had lace and beading on the top and over the straps into a really pretty low back.

I spent ages trying to find the right colour for my bridesmaids, in the end I chose a sailor blue colour on lovely chiffon strapless dresses from Dessy.

We had a wishing tree which I know loads of people have done now but it’s such a nice way to display everyone’s good wishes on the day. We attached old vintage keys which we got from eBay to our tags and wrote a note saying ‘Please write your key to a happy marriage’.

.

Around our card crate we had photos in frames of both sets of parents and grandparents (including my late grandparents) who have all given us such a great example of marriage.

We had the best cake, There were three of them in different sizes; a fruit cake, a Belgian chocolate cake with passion fruit filling, and a vanilla cake with chocolate ganache filling. They were covered in milk chocolate and had white chocolate pouring over the sides and little white chocolate flowers. It was made by a lovely lady called Sharon who owns the Sugar Velvet Cake Company.

Easter had to be a bit of a theme as it was Easter Sunday. We had a sweetie table, Mini Eggs as favours in mini plant pots and we had Thornton’s chocolate Easter eggs with the table names iced on them. Yum!.

We had a band called ‘The Dollars’ who we found via the ‘Alive Network’ who also provided a DJ service in between their sets. They were a bit of a risk as we had never seen them before booking but they were fab and had such a great song list that we could choose from. They learnt our first dance song ‘I Won’t Give Up’ by Jason Mraz, and it was beyond our expectations, perfect!

After the wedding we honeymooned in Thailand… Bangkok for a few days and then Koh Samui for a week!

My top tip for other Brides Up North is from experience: do not change your skin care regime or use different make-up before the wedding!

The Snow Queens – A Styled Bridal Shoot In North Yorkshire

February 12th, 2013 | Julia Braime

.

I’ve something extra specially sparkly, snowy and gorgeous for you this afternoon.  After enduring weeks of grizzle, grey and slush, I think it’s time we fell back in love with the white stuff… because brides really should love white, now, shouldn’t they?!  This pretty and impromptu styled shoot comes to you courtesy of friend of the wedding blog, Abi, of Wooden Hill Images, and I’m so excited to share the loveliness with you. 

.

Abi says:  Being a natural light photographer, the outdoors fascinate me. In January whist watching the weather forecast and seeing what was forecast to be the last of the snow, inspiration hit!

The inspiration behind much of my editing comes from both literary classics and the way a photograph can make you feel.  With more and more brides getting married in winter, I thought about the visions of Narnia and snow filled fields and the beauty of wintry ‘costume’.  I called on my good friend Jane from Wedding and Events Floral Design and we decided to seize the moment. We had 48 hours!

Jane contacted and arranged the use of Howebridge Wedding Venue in Sowerby, Thirsk, utilizing the gardens and field.  Brides and Belles, Northallerton so generously offered the use of any of their dresses that fitted our brief and local models were found who would brave the elements! Claire Taylor of the Cake Fairy Company expressed interest in joining us and so we began to draw up a vision of different Snow Queens.

.

On the morning of the shoot, it had snowed harder than anticipated so we had to swap venues as Howebridge was unreachable. Wedding Events and Floral Design offered the use of their gardens and field. With only two models able to get to the shoot, we called on their ability to become all the different Snow Queens that we had envisioned.

With oceans of humour and huge dollop of giddy excitement, our first Snow Queen, Georgia was born. Her world is outdoors, the juxtaposition of interior living, outside. She reads romance, wrapped in luxurious fur, in quiet simplicity.  In contrast Olivia, is a Queen with stylish authority, a billowing bridal gown and a superior air about her.  Bo, a pretty, playful bride with a love of Nordic worlds and with a bejewelled bouquet of brooches and trinkets has an inner smile.  Cordelia (my personal favourite) has an ethereal, frosted quality, from a medieval land her Bridal coat and natural circlet in her hair, encapsulating all things rustic.

.

Unfortunately, as we progressed through the shoot the snow was thawing incredibly fast so we were working to huge time restraints. The cake had to retire inside for fear of being ruined and Snow Queen ‘Katarina’ hasn’t even made the final cut because the snow thawed all over her dress and hair!

Super Quirky Gorgeous! A Real Wedding In North Yorkshire – Edwina & Adam

December 3rd, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

Dominic Wright Photography-North Yorkshire Wedding Photographer

.

.

I’m spending most of my day in trains and automobiles today as I head North of the Border for some exciting meetings about bringing the Brides Up North magic to my lovely Scottish readers in person (hello you, sorry it’s taken so long!), as well as catching up with some of my favourite suppliers in that part of the country.

.

My family has a strong Scottish heritage (my Mum was born and raised just outside of and my parents met and married whilst working in an Edinburgh hotel) so I always feel like a trip even further North is a little like coming home.  I’ve packed plenty of Winter woolies (as well as a dash of sparkle) for the two day trip and I can’t wait to feel that bracing wind blowing the colour back into my cheeks.

.

So, have laptop, will travel, and will look forward to sharing some news soon…

.

In the meantime, I wouldn’t go gallivanting without leaving you without something extra special to pour over.  Step forward Edwina & Adam and their absolutely stunning Real Wedding at the wonderful Crab Manor Hotel in North Yorkshire, with images by the disgustingly talented Dominic Wright Photography (a Brides Up North Featured Supplier no less!).

how different and quirky it was with beautiful gardens and amazing themed rooms.

I chose a Justin Alexander oyster pearl lace dress which came up to the neck and was fitted into the waist with an oyster pearl satin band round the middle which went into a fishtail . It was from Blissful Daze, Sheffield. Such amazing staff and a top class shop.

Real Wedding Recap 2011: Buttons and Bows! A Real DIY Wedding In Yorkshire, Claire & Gareth

December 27th, 2011 | Julia Braime

.

This DIY wedding from Brides Up North fan Claire is packed to the rafters with clever details.  This wedding has a button theme, but certainly isn’t a make-do-and-mend affair, which is why it is one of the wedding blog’s favourites of 2011.  Merry Christmas Claire and Gareth!   

.

.

Brides Up North UK Wedding Blog: Chris Milner Photography

This Real Wedding comes from a regular Brides Up North reader, Claire.  I was over the moon when Claire emailed me to let me know that she had used the wedding blog to plan her gorgeous wedding day, and even found her photographer, Chris Milner Photography, and venue, The Old Lodge at Malton, on these pages.  She wasn’t disappointed, and you won’t be either!  Be inspired!

.

Over to Claire: We got engaged September 2009, Gareth proposed whilst we were sea kayaking off a beach in Bali and we married on 22nd October 2010 at The Old Lodge, Malton, North Yorkshire.

After looking high and low this venue just had the right feeling about it. We wanted a relaxed venue that still felt special. The Old Lodge is rustic and cosy.  Our whole aim was an autumnal wedding with the colour of the leaves and a warm feeling. We didn’t focus too heavily on just one thing but there were a few ideas that tied it all together, like the buttons and woodwork.  Colour wise, we based a lot of things around the taupe colour of the bridesmaid’s dress.

.

.

When choosing my dress, I wanted something timeless and elegant – I’m also quite petite so I wanted something that would compliment my size.  I looked at lots of ideas including shorter ‘tea dresses’ but this one was just right – I didn’t want lots of embellishment or jewels. The dress was called Sex And The City and I got it from Perfect Daze in Denby Dale.

My sister wore a taupe dress from Dessy via To Have and To Hold in Mirfield where she lives. We got my little niece a girl’s dress from Next but added to it with a bow to match her mum’s dress.

We made all our own bouquets/buttonholes using buttons that I got from my late Grandma’s sewing box (and it also had her Grandad’s Royal Mail badges in it which was really sentimental as he couldn’t be there on the day) – this really made it feel like our day as we’d done it all ourselves. Gareth and his friend made the wooden table centres and we had lots of jam jars donated by friends and family which I embellished to match everything else.

We chose a classic homemade fruit cake with loads of booze in it by Gareth’s mum, which was iced to match the other items on the day with buttons all around it. The cake topper was made by Gareth to match our original invitation idea with two little lovebirds.

We went to a friend’s wedding earlier in the year and decided afterwards that a band was really what we wanted for our evening entertainment. Reservoir Rocks from Sheffield were recommended by a friend and I cannot thank them enough, they were awesome, thoroughly entertaining, played loads of good songs and even learnt two special tracks just for us. We also arranged some fireworks as a special surprise seeing as it was so close to bonfire night.

My favourite thing about the day was having fireworks after the first dance!  It was a really great way of going out with a bang! Also – we served tea and biscuits after the ceremony – it was quirky, but people enjoyed the warm drink and everyone loves a brew.

.

For our honeymoon we spent a few quiet days at Wrigglesbrook B&B in Herefordshire – they have two original Varda’s (gypsy caravans) for guests to sleep in by the river – such a charming and peaceful place with some great food on offer. 

.

.

Chris Milner Photography

.

.

My top tip for other Brides Up North would be to have fun with your planning – making stuff really keeps costs down and it’s the personal touches that people will really remember. It can be stressful but once the day begins, just let people get on with it and have fun.

.

.

Congratulations Claire & Gareth! HEART

Sing A Rainbow, A Real Wedding – Fran & James

July 22nd, 2011 | Julia Braime

.

Brides Up North Wedding Blog: Lissa Alexandra Photography

.

.

I dropped everything when I got this email from up and coming photographer Lissa Alexandra Photography and just, like, stared for a while.  Because this Real Wedding at Danby Castle (a Brides Up North Featured Supplier none the less!) is absolutely stunning and I can’t wait to share it on the wedding blog today.  With styling from the lovely Kim at The Fine and Funky Events Company,  I don’t even need to introduce it, or say why I love it.  You will see.  And then I’ll say “I told you so”.

.

.

Brides Up North Wedding Blog: Lissa Alexandra Photography

.

.

Over to Miss Lissa: Fran and James got married on Saturday 9th July at Danby Castle. The theme was fun and vintage. It was very much a DIY wedding.  For the photographs, Fran and I discussed what props we could use in the photos in our first meeting and she organised these and we also used items out of the dressing up box provided by Danby Castle.

They had provided plenty of games scattered around the venue for the guests to play with but the best feature was a photo booth. Positioned on a tripod, the camera was facing a patterned backdrop and guests were encouraged to use the props and the dressing up box and take silly photos of each other. It was hilarious watching Granny and Gramps a bit tiddly, putting on Elton John glasses and mad hats.

It was also good fun when the ice cream van arrived, we kicked the ice cream man out of the van and got Fran and James to serve their guests their delights.

The day was absolutely fabulous but we were slightly unlucky with the weather – just as the ceremony finished the heavens opened and the bride and groom were held hostage by the weather whilst most of the guests braved it to the marquee (also which started to flood at one point!).

The true silver lining to this rain cloud was the delightful surprise that followed. I’d gone outside to check the state of the rain and couldn’t believe my luck. The rain had cleared and left over was a stunning rainbow positioned right in the middle of the valley as if a artist had painted it. I went running into the ceremony room where Fran was taking refuge calling her name and grabbed the both of them for the perfect photo opportunity. I’m so proud of that photo and I know they absolutely love it. If I was guaranteed a shot like that after every rain cloud then bring those babies on!

The bride says:  I cannot thank Lissa enough. We were keen to not have just the typical
wedding photographs and more wanted great artistic photos, that just happened to include us on our wedding day. And my word did we get that! I had never dared to imagine that our wedding photographs would be as beautiful as they are- they are breath taking. We are absolutely  overjoyed with them. And Lissa is fantastic. In pre-wedding meets I showed her the style of photos I liked, thinking we may get one or two that we liked, but Lissa blew them all out of the water- producing shot after shot- far better than those that I showed her. I just can’t believe these are OUR wedding photos- everyone is blown away with them. And not only are we happy (understatement of the century!) with the photos, but we can’t fault the way Lissa worked. Some photographers muscle their way in front of the guests- but not Lissa- she so subtle that we and our guest didn’t even notice her snapping away. Thank you a million times Lissa- I will be firmly recommending you to everyone I know (and even those I don’t!).

You just did Fran!

Fabulous Photographer: Tux & Tales Photography

July 9th, 2011 | Julia Braime

.

Are you having a good weekend Brides Up North?  I hope so!  I’m off on a friend’s hen weekend at the moment, so I leave you with this lovely chat I had with the fabulous photographer Tux & Tales Photography earlier this week.  What a cool chick and what beautiful images!  This wedding blogger is all agog (and it ain’t the hen do grog!)…

.

.

Brides Up North Wedding Blog: Tux & Tales Photography 

.

How did you get into wedding photography?

.

I started out years ago doing what is called ‘art photography’ – which mostly involves a lot of gallery showings and not a lot of money. Although I still love art photography (particularly photographing abandoned buildings and places), I decided that I really wanted to make a living doing it and so the progression into portraiture and eventually weddings seemed only natural. I grew up in a photography family, with my father having been a photographer years ago and remaining a die-hard enthusiast for years after leaving photography as a profession.

.

.

Brides Up North Wedding Blog: Tux & Tales Photography

.

Why wedding photography specifically?

.

I know it may sound silly, but as soon as I decided that I wanted to become a full time photographer, I wanted to photograph weddings (it just took a while to build my confidence!).There is something so exciting and irreplaceable about being a part of someone’s wedding day. You are an integral piece of one of the biggest days of someone’s life and you are helping to create the photographs that will be shared for generations to come – how could I not completely love wedding photography?

.

.

Brides Up North Wedding Blog: Tux & Tales Photography

.

What is your favourite thing about being a wedding photographer?

.

My favourite part is getting to know the couple. I get so attached to my couples that I even sometimes cry during the speeches. Sad, but true!

.

.

Brides Up North Wedding Blog: Tux & Tales Photography

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

.
Lots of Champagne! :-) … noooooo… don’t do that! Unless you really like that one eye closed ‘pirate’ look! Honestly, I believe that the best way to relax in front of the camera is to get to know your photographer really well before the day. We offer complimentary engagement sessions and during this time, you get an opportunity to see how I work and to get to know me a little bit on a personal level. It is so much easier to relax if it feels like a friend is photographing you rather than a stranger.

.

.

Brides Up North Wedding Blog: Tux & Tales Photography

.

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

.

Boy, I am going to sound like I am harping on engagement sessions, but they really are critical to creating great photos – particularly if you are camera shy. I hate having my photo taken – I have been known to literally run from a camera before. I think it is one of the reasons I decided to get behind the lens (no running if you are the one taking the picture). From my own camera-shy experience, feeling comfortable with the photographer makes a huge difference. I know that I feel so much better about having my photo taken if I know in advance that my photographer can pose my body to hide all the wobbly-bits that I hate.

It also doesn’t hurt to practise a little before the day. A tiny lift of the chin or turn of the ankle can make a huge difference, so it never hurts to get into your wedding dress before the day and ‘get your pose on’ in front of a mirror. C’mon – it isn’t like you really need an excuse to put on that lovely dress!

.

.

Brides Up North Wedding Blog: Tux & Tales Photography

.

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

.

I always recommend a professional makeup artist for your big day because they really are pros and know which brands look best on camera (some really do look better than others!) But let’s be realistic, not everyone has the extra money in their budget. So my biggest bit of advice is to watch your skin tone matching – it is really rough when the photos look like you have an orange mask on your face and a white neck. If you have creamy skin, rock it – don’t cover it. I have found that MAC makeup looks really great and you could always have a consultation with a MAC makeup artist before the day. One last hint (as I ramble on…) watch the false eyelashes. Glue them on really well because crying can dislodge them and you may not notice that they have peeled back for quite some time!

.

.

Brides Up North Wedding Blog: Tux & Tales Photography

.

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

.

Avoid rushing and give yourself time in the day to have your photos taken. Wedding photography is usually the largest amount of money anyone will ever pay for professional photography – make the most of it.

.

.

Brides Up North Wedding Blog: Tux & Tales Photography

.

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

.

Wow… so many… how would I ever narrow down the list? I would have to say it is a tie between Maggie Gyllenhaal’s wedding and Stephen Fry’s civil partnership.

.

.

Brides Up North Wedding Blog: Tux & Tales Photography

.
Any memorable weddings that you have captured?

.

I love both little DIY weddings full of fabulous details as well as big, luxury affairs. Recently we photographed a wedding that was a bit of both. The bride and groom had this really elegant luxury wedding at Sudbury Hall National Trust property (NT weddings rock!) and when they went home, they had this great boho-eclectic DIY reception at their house. There was salsa dancing and a treasure hunt! In the groom’s speech he said that being with his new wife was better than the Evel Knievel action figure he got as a kid. I cried.

.

.

Brides Up North Wedding Blog: Tux & Tales Photography

.

Are you married?  Tell us about your day.

.
I am married to the best husband in the entire world (who also just happens to work as my assistant). When we got married a few years ago we were po’ (too poor to afford the ‘O’ and the ‘R’) and we did the whole wedding on £1000. I wore a charity-shop wedding dress and we were married in a mixed faith ceremony at the local church. We were so poor the vicar even rung the bells for us for free because we couldn’t afford to pay for it. We had a fabulous, really fun day and even though we were on the world’s smallest budget, I still remember it so fondly. We have decided that in a few more years, we will renew our vows and do something really quirky and out-of-this-world (he was talking rickshaw and those great tee-pee tents…need I say more?).

.

.

Brides Up North Wedding Blog: Tux & Tales Photography

.

Any funny stories to share?

.

We were recently at a wedding were the best man and the groom had accidentally swapped coats and at the end of the evening, everyone was waiting to give the bride and groom their big send off and the groom couldn’t find his keys! Everyone was in a mad panic trying to find the keys including the best man. This went on for a half an hour or so before the best man realised he had the keys in his pocket because he was wearing the groom’s coat. Poor guy turned about 19 shades of purple. I think it is fun stuff like that which is remembered years and years later. It seems embarrassing at the time but makes for a great memory.

.

.

Brides Up North Wedding Blog: Tux & Tales Photography

.
What sets you apart from other wedding photographers?

.

Our business is created following the ‘boutique’ model – meaning that we take on fewer clients but give them more service. I am a complete nut for good customer service (and not afraid to write a stern letter when I get bad service!) and I want to be the part of the wedding that goes perfectly. Time and again our clients have thanked us for the way we watched after all the little details. We also like to think of ourselves as guests at a wedding who are entrusted with photographing it – not some great, bossy choreographer who needs to herd the cattle into behaving properly. We take a ‘light hand’ with guests and try to use humour to get people to do what we need them to do.

.

.

Brides Up North Wedding Blog: Tux & Tales Photography

.

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

.

They can expect to have a good time!
.

.

Brides Up North Wedding Blog: Tux & Tales Photography

.

What is included in your "package"?

.

We offer collections that start at 4 hours and go up to 12 hours and include a disc of high resolution, individually retouched photographs. We also offer a range of modern and traditional print options from world class printing companies.

.

.
Can you give us an idea on price?

.

.

.

To The Manor Born! A Real Wedding, Fay & Nick

March 24th, 2011 | Julia Braime

.

Brand spanking new Featured Supplier photographer Dirk Van Der Werff wasted no time in sending Brides Up North this awesome Real Wedding in North Yorkshire. Fay and Nick’s wedding was held at The Crab and Lobster at Asenby, near Topcliffe last summer.  The Crab Manor Hotel is really cool (one of Brides Up North’s faves!) – the gorgeous bedrooms are modelled on famous hotels around the world, like Raffles in Singapore! Famous rooms and perfect weddings indeed.

Dirk says: I just try to blend in with family and friends, often meeting parents before the day to build a relationship, so that on the day, there’s no surprises, and we’re not strangers!

Indian Summer, A Real Wedding – Nilima & Alan

February 11th, 2011 | Julia Braime

.

Brides Up North Featured Supplier and fabulous Yorkshire photographer York Place Studios sent me this stunning Real Wedding in Helmsley, North Yorkshire. The venue just happens to be one of my hubby’s and my favourite boutique boltholes.  We even forfeited an engagement party to spend the weekend there instead, just the two of us. Enjoy!

.

Dominique of York Place Studios explains: An English groom and an Indian Bride. Alan and Nilima are both proud of their heritage and both agreed that they wanted a very traditional wedding. The only problem was; which traditions?

.

.

yorkplacestudios2

.

.

The answer was simple: both. An, intimate British wedding service in the beautiful historical town of Helmsley, North Yorkshire, and later a huge Indian style reception celebration in Nilima’s home country. A chance for them to enjoy the festivities of both of their cultures and an opportunity for family and friends in both countries to celebrate the love shared between this wonderful couple.

For the British side of their wedding they chose a town rich in beauty and history. The medieval town provided the perfect setting for a wedding lavish in tradition, and for the ceremony itself they chose one of
Yorkshire’s finest and most stylish locations in the luxury Feversham Arms Hotel and Spa. A Michelin star winning chef, a chic lounge complete with roaring fire, a stunning swimming pool and a relaxing spa made it a perfect place to celebrate their special day in style.

Though on the most part this day was themed on Alan’s customs, there is one part of the wedding that is all about the bride. Embroidered in a glimmering golden thread, Nilima’s beautiful white wedding Saree and ornate Indian jewellery brought out her own character and style, and she looked simply stunning.

.

.

.

Flanked by her mother and sister (who had made the journey all the way from India to be with her), Nilima left her deluxe poolside suite and made her grand entrance to the delight of her friends, family and her fiancé.

After a small but elegant reception back at the Feversham Arms, this gorgeous couple now await another party across the seas, Indian style! No doubt it will be a very special celebration, an incredible party and oneequally rich in the traditions and customs of another great culture.
