May Day Merriment. Cymbeline & A Flower Crown For A Handfasting Outdoor Wedding in the Peak District – Keli & Pete

July 7th, 2014 | Rachel Parry

I’m all for making a wedding your own and that’s exactly what Keli and Pete did when they tied the knot (and their hands) at Windy Harbour Farm Hotel in the beautiful Peak District. The couple not only made their reception individual, but the ceremony itself too by having a secular service that reflected their journey to marriage as well as a handfasting with an elemental blessing.

The stunning outdoor setting gave way to carefree fun with the newlyweds and their guests enjoying garden games, afternoon tea and personalised beverages before burning up the dance floor in the evening.

One particular individual element that I adore about this wedding is that Pete had two best women! Breaking down yet another traditional wedding barrier, I think it’s fabulous that Pete asked those closest to him to fulfil the honourable role, regardless of their gender.

Keli said: We got engaged in the summer of 2011, the same summer we’d left our lives in London and gone travelling around England in a tent for three months. Pete and I had finally made it home, to my parents, where we would start to look for a new house and start building our new life up north.

We decided to take advantage of the last sunny day in September and go for a final walk in Castleton that included Mam Tor. Unfortunately our map reading skills were a little exhausted from the travelling all summer and we couldn’t seem to find the main path leading to the summit. So – fearful of never getting there – we turned off the beaten path and started up the side. Turns out we picked one of the steepest slopes to climb; we were exhausted and almost gave up halfway but Pete was persistent. When we got up there is was rather windy and rather crowded with people – which was not part of Pete’s plan – so we moved over the crest of the hill to sit out of the wind looking out over the beautiful Derbyshire countryside. After some lazy minutes Pete asked me to close my eyes, gave me a kiss and then produced the ring. I think my first response was “Are you sure?” And then lots of crying and laughing followed, and of course my answer, Yes!

Windy Harbour Farm Hotel was the first venue we visited and only because it was just up the road from our new home in Glossop, Derbyshire. However as soon as we walked in both of us were struck by how friendly and how right it felt. The size was perfect for the 50 to 80 guests we planned to invite and the garden area was beautifully kept, which was essential as we knew we wanted an outdoor ceremony with our mixture of pagan and secular traditions. Our country fair theme would need to include things like hay bales and garden games so we were lucky to find owners who were not only happy for us to do all this, but also happy to source things like the hay bales for us.

We both wanted a ceremony that was unique and individual to us, more so than a church or civil ceremony can be. Added to that, I’m a Pagan and was determined to get married outside, surrounded by the natural world. We found Kate Gee, a Humanist celebrant who was happy to incorporate elements of Pagan ritual into a secular service that reflected our lives and the journey that had led us to the moment of marriage. We still exchanged rings and used vows similar to those in the Common Book of Prayer. We also had a handfasting with an elemental blessing, undertaken by one of our maids of honour. Everyone commented on how poignant and moving the ceremony was and we couldn’t have been happier with the way we were able to seal our marriage.

As soon as we picked the date in May we knew we’d have a May Day themed wedding. We both love the May Day holiday and spent many years travelling to Hastings and various other places to celebrate it. So we knew we wanted lots of ribbons, greenery, games and folk music; as you would find at a May Day festival. We didn’t have a particular colour theme but we did end up using dark ivy green as the main contrasting colour. We also used a simple bright blue, yellow and red combination to accent it all – these mostly popped up as ribbons.

I wore ‘Fadella’ by Cymbeline which I found at The White Room in Sheffield. It was nothing like the dress I’d imagined myself wearing to be wed but it was the one dress that made me feel like a bride. Being light and not too bulky it made perfect sense for the venue and the outdoors, informal nature of the whole day. In the end the lace matched Pete’s country suit perfectly and the small train meant it was great to dance in.

Pete wanted something that was quite ‘countryside’ and immediately thought of a tweed jacket which he ended up getting from Next. He wore it with a grey waistcoat and brown trousers from Debenhams. His tie was also from Next. The two fathers wore the same jacket and tie as Pete but created their own combos so they didn’t all look the same.

Although untraditional Pete had best women – Zoe and Lyvia, two of our closest friends from university. The two of them and Pete were a very close trio throughout our time there and they both coached him through a lot of good times, bad times and rather mad times. They wore navy blue dresses from Next with matching taupe shoes.

I knew from the start that I didn’t want lots of bridesmaids as choosing from all my friends and family would mean all the female guests would have ended up in the wedding party. Instead I asked two of my closest friends to be maids of honour on the agreement they would be available to help out with all the wedding planning and stop me from succumbing to the dreaded Bridezilla too often in the run up to the wedding. Their dresses proved very difficult to find, especially as they both live quite far away and work a lot and we had to take into account the two best men, who were also wearing dresses. In the end we found two light summer dresses in Dorothy Perkins and they were the perfect complement to my lace dress and the best womens’ navy blue dresses.

Having good photos was vital to our day and we were keen to find a photographer who would fit in with the whole event and not feel like an outsider. We wanted mostly informal shots and pictures that took in the beautiful landscapes around us. Jon Rouston provided all that and more, giving us relaxed shots of our guests enjoying themselves as well as glimpses of the day we never would have seen otherwise. He also created some gorgeous portraits of us using a variety of local landscapes.

Live, Laugh, Love. A 1950’s Vintage Real Wedding In Lancashire – Adele & Donna

March 17th, 2014 | Julia Braime

Catharine Noble Photography

BIG LOVE to our brilliant and talented exhibitors, fabulous brides and goody bag touting grooms who supported our event in Leeds yesterday. The Brides Up North Luxury Wedding Exhibition at The Mansion was glorious! Thank you to everyone involved for your support and attendance, our team loved every minute of it. Roll on our next show at this favourite venue of mine… in the diary for 19th October!  More on that later.

Meanwhile, it’s still a March Monday on these pretty pages, and I’ve got something rather lovely in store for you this morning.  Today we are celebrating with not one stylish Bride Up North but two, as we join Adele and Donna for their bright, balmy and beautiful Real Wedding celebration in Lancashire.

Catharine Noble Photography

Donna says:  We got engaged in May 2010. One Saturday morning there was a knock on the door. I was faced with a big bunch of flowers and a card saying ‘Will you marry me?’ and as I was reading this Adele produced a lovely white gold diamond ring in the shape of a flower.

Catharine Noble Photography

We were married on 3rd August 2013 at Heskin Hall Tudor manor house in Chorley, Lancashire.  We had looked at an array of venues in the area and didn’t come across any that understood us as a couple and understood what we wanted our wedding day to be like. The venue was perfect and just what we had in mind.

Catharine Noble Photography

Catharine Noble Photography

From the onset we had a 1950’s vintage theme. This included a VW Camper Van from Cheshire Campervan Hire as our transport, dapper floral shirts and dickie bows for the men and boys, vintage ice cream van from Every Day Is Like Sundae, high tea with vintage mismatched china, bunting, birdcages and heart shaped table confetti made from old sonnets. We collected jam jars, tied lace around these and added meadow flowers to them. We also had lawn games for our guests including croquet. Our motto – Live, Laugh, Love – was also featured throughout our ceremony and celebrations.

We visited our local mill and our bridesmaids selected the same print in a different colour each to be made into the same dresses. Our little flower girl Elise wore a simple flower girl dress from BHS, which matched perfectly with the theme. The page boys wore matching floral shirts from Debenhams and waist coat and trousers from BHS. My father also wore a matching suit and shirt from Debenhams. All the boys wore dickie bows and 50’s style shoes.

Catharine Noble Photography

We both chose a similar style of dress even though we hadn’t consulted each other. Our local bridal shop and dress maker Something Special based in Horwich made both our dresses and bridesmaid dresses simply from a couple of pictures and ideas.

We carried simple but elegant meadow flowers and tea roses by Fleur De Lyn Cooper.  I had a Scottish thistle within my bouquet in memory of my grandma who was from Scotland.

We had a male soloist on a guitar who learned all our favourite songs and sang these straight after the ceremony on the lawn and also while we were having high tea.

Natural Vintage. Maggie Sottero For A Real Tipi Wedding In Durham – Kathryn & Dean

February 6th, 2014 | Julia Braime

SDS Photography

A tortoise in a tutu, heaps of lace, pearls and roses and a Real Wedding in a tipi in my home town.  Thursday mornings don’t get much better than that!  Today we join North East couple Kathryn and Dean for their celebration under canvas in County Durham.

With images by SDS Photography

SDS Photography

Kathryn says:  We got engaged on Christmas Day 2012. Dean had planned different scenarios on how and where he was going to propose, depending on the weather. Because it didn’t snow outside, he made it snow inside. Dean covered the living room in fake snow and played our favourite Christmas song – there was a big box in the middle of the room filled with lots of smaller boxes (like Russian dolls). I had wanted a watch for Christmas so when I got to the last box, it was quite big so I thought it was the watch, but there was nothing inside it – I looked up and Dean had big sheets of card with the words of our favourite Christmas song “All I want for Christmas is You”, after each card he dropped the cards, one by one; “Love Actually” style. After the last one he got down on one knee and pulled out a ring box with a gorgeous diamond ring in! Needless to say by this point I was in tears and obviously said yes!

SDS Photography

We were married on 26th October 2013 at Elvet Methodist Church in Durham followed by a reception in giant tipis in a friend’s field close to Ushaw College.

We had 5 giant tipis supplied by Special Event Tipis, they were joined together to make one huge marquee style space, one of which was the bar and chill out area, and one was for the band and dance floor area, and the other 3 were the main seating area for the meal. We had over 170 guests during the day with an additional 70 in the evening.

SDS Photography

We chose to use tipis because we fancied something a little different!  My sister and I used to have a business supplying chair covers and sashes for weddings so I had been to most venues in the North East so I wanted something totally different and special!

As soon as I went the visit the tipis, I knew they were exactly what I wanted. Dean wasn’t able to see the tipis before the wedding so he was a little sceptical about the idea, he only saw them the day before the wedding when we were setting them up, but he highly approved, much to my relief.

SDS Photography

We went for a natural and vintage feel with lots of lace & pearls. We also had a recurrent theme of logs; from a picture of a tree stump in the corner of our invitations with our initials carved in it, hollowed out tree stumps and logs filled with flowers for the table centre pieces and giant slices of bark covered tree trunk were used as cake stands for our traditional wedding cake and cheese wedding cake.

Our colour scheme was quite neutral with pale gold and ivory.

SDS Photography

My dress was from the Wedding Wardrobe at Chester-le-Street and was a Maggie Sottero dress called Grace. It was a very pale gold satin covered in ivory lace. To make it my own, I bought a handmade vintage style necklace and bracelet and had the necklace sewed into the front of my dress under the bust and the bracelet was attached to the top of my veil. I had these removed after the wedding to keep and wear as jewellery.

SDS Photography

I had too many close friends and sisters to choose from so decided to only have four small bridesmaids, my nieces. I got their dresses from BHS and teamed them with a cream cardigan from John Lewis. The dresses were pale gold satin with a lace bodice, they matched my dress perfectly!

The men wore dark navy, 3 piece suits which we bought from Next (it proved quite difficult as the men live all over the country) with a white shirt and vintage gold patterned tie form M&S. I also had my nephew as a page boy who wore a navy suit form Monsoon and we had one of the mens’ ties made smaller to fit him.

SDS Photography

I had a beautiful bouquet which had white avalanche roses, Roralie roses which were a pale peach/cream colour, talea roses which were a vintage peach/champagne colour, spray snowflake roses, white hydrangea and wax flowers and we also added old brooches which I had collected from antiques fairs and strings of pearls to keep the vintage theme going.  All our flowers were by Country Style at Langley Park. 

SDS Photography

We travelled in a cream VW split screen Campervan from Lovedub Cars called Chaz – he was beautiful.

Real Wedding Recap Winter 2013: Summer Lovin’. Chinese Dragons For A Real Wedding In Derbyshire – Helen & Jamie

December 31st, 2013 | Julia Braime

Its holiday season here on the blog, and as the team take a break until to rest and recharge for what’s set to be the biggest and best year yet at Brides Up North HQ, we’ll be leaving you with a reduced blogging schedule so that you still get your daily dose of wedding pretty.

Usual service will recommence on 2nd January 2014,  but in the meantime watch out for recaps of our favourite Real Weddings in 2013.  Drop in every day for the very, very prettiest wedding inspiration and if you are a Brides Up North bride, to see if your Real Wedding was one of our top picks.

One Wedding

My god, Helen and Jamie’s wedding day looks like fun.  This is one of those features – put together in the early hours of the morning (or the late hours of the night, whichever way you want to look at it) that makes me want to shut down the laptop, pick up those dancing shoes and a bottle of something cold and head off to party till dawn.

Bright, vibrant, individual and full of fun, I hope that this gorgeous Real Wedding spreads a little sunshine your way.  Just watch out for dragons…

Helen says: We got engaged in June 2011, in Hong Kong. We were living in a city called Zhuhai in mainland China at the time and Jamie whisked me away to Hong Kong as a surprise to celebrate 9 years since our 1st date. Despite a typhoon and last minute customs issues with the ring J’s plan came together!

We were married on 6th July 2013 in the gardens of Woodthorpe Hall in Derbyshire The ceremony took place in the cider press and the reception outside and in a marquee on the lawn.

We chose the venue because of it’s stunning location. We were showed round by the house owner Dick and he was so friendly and his wife Sue was brilliant. We had the freedom to choose anything we liked, bringing in our own suppliers and spend the week before customising the whole place.

Our theme was a hint of China! We lived in China for almost four years and got engaged in Hong Kong so there were a few nods to that part of our lives. We brought back all sorts of lanterns and flags for decorations and filled the fridges with Tsingtao beer (from the city where we lived). Our first dance was a Chinese pop song.  Our colours were lucky Chinese red and white. 

One Wedding

My dress came from a shop in Manchester, I was after something a bit different and once I saw it I knew I’d found the right one. It was a bit of an ordeal because I had sorted something from China that didn’t work out in the end so it was quite a last minute find but it was all ok in the end! 

I had one bridesmaid; Jamie’s sister Em. She looked stunning in a red dress made for her in China. She sent us some pictures of the style she liked and we chose the material and had it made. My other best mates all wore something with a touch of red and we all carried red or white parasols. Jamie and the groomsmen wore the same suit they found on a shopping outing together. The teamed it up with waistcoats/ties to suit their own style.

One Wedding

We originally wanted red and white orchids in our bouquets but it was such a hot week that the florist, Jo Price, called and said they wouldn’t last the day so we added in roses.

The ceremony was in the same place as the reception so we didn’t have any transport between the two. I travelled in style with my Dad whose car my bro polished to perfection. We had a great moment with the top down and the music playing going down the country lanes.

A highlight of the day was the arrival of the Sheffield Chinese Lion Dance Troupe just after the meal. Jamie and I had arranged for this to be a total surprise so everybody was shocked and excited. Brilliant!

Thanks to the help of friends and family we personalised the tables and marquee. We glued photos of us with friends and family onto red ribbon to make bunting and string it around the marquee. There were photos of every guest as well as friends who couldn’t make it everywhere. 

We used beer bottles from around the world as table markers and a friend did calligraphy for names.  The table centres were flower arrangements made by Jamie’s Mum and friends teamed up with some Chinese fans.  We brought back some Chinese bracelets which we used as napkin rings for the guests to keep. Instead of favours we put a pound coin in a Chinese box and told guest to choose a pot labelled for three different charities. People added some extra coins and we raised over £300.

Dick and Sue at Woodthorpe Hall were fantastic. They were so hands on and helpful. The guests said they felt very well looked after. They only do a handful of weddings a year so it felt very personal.

We hired a Marquee from Ascot Marquees. ‘Marquee Mark’ helped us hang lanterns and red bunting (expertly made by my Mum!) and the place looked great. A friend from Totally Gazeboed contributed gazebos for the string quartet and a photo booth. We raided the attic for some props and got some hilarious shots.

One Wedding

We brought in our own booze and homemade canapés. Jamie used to live in Germany so the last time he went to visit his friends there he filled up the car with mini kegs of German beer which we placed around the garden for people to help themselves to.  PJ Taste provided the main food. Wonderful! We had BBQ steak, swordfish and veg with lots of lovely salads. Highly recommended.  Our friends from Cocoa Wonderland sorted us out with some yummy chocs.

One Wedding

My mum baked fruit cake for the three tiers and iced them white then the week before the wedding my friends came over to help decorate. Kat and Sarah made sugar paste flowers and James helped stack the tiers and add the ribbon. We also had friends bake cakes to bring along so we had lots to choose

from.

For the evening dancing we played our favourite tunes and friends and brothers helped to DJ.  We also had a fab impromptu ukulele song by Geoff who got everyone singing along.

I have so many favourite parts to the day! Standing there with Jamie at the ceremony. Seeing all our different friends and family all together having fun. The speeches. People’s reaction to the Lion Dance. Having a moment with Jamie taking it all in looking over the moors. The first dance and the dancing to Design for Life with my Dad and friends. Everything was so positive and lovely.

One Wedding

After the wedding we honeymooned at a music festival in Lisbon (including seeing Biffy Clyro whose music we used during our ceremony) and spent some time on the Portuguese coast.

One Wedding

My top tip for other Brides Up North would be to add lots of little things to make the day feel yours and don’t get too worried what other people do for their weddings. The day is very personal, there are a lot of extras that you don’t always need. Include things that reflect you!

One Wedding

Congratulations Helen & Jamie!

Fallen Apples. A Styled Bridal Inspiration Shoot In The Lake District

December 18th, 2013 | Julia Braime

Jo Bradbury

This morning we join photographer Jo Bradbury for a beautiful wedding inspiration shoot in an outdoor setting.  If you are planning a vintage wedding, consider adding natural elements alongside your precious pieces to freshen the look and bring the styling up to date. 

Be inspired!

Jo Bradbury

Jo Bradbury

Jo says:  This project was the culmination of a couple of ideas I had and carried out at my parents farm.  I wanted the theme to be ‘Old English’ and so included the vintage crockery and old brooches, bone handled cutlery, old lace and vintage books. The farm has a beautiful old apple tree and because it was late Autumn, most of the apples had fallen to the ground and formed a green carpet.

This was a great opportunity to test out some ideas, you see so many beautiful and creative details when photographing weddings and so much inspiration, that its nice to take a more leisurely approach to a shoot without the usual time pressure of a wedding. A huge thank you must go to the lovely couple Tara and Adam who travelled all the way from Warwickshire for the shoot.

The flowers were by the very talented Teresa at Wild Orchid, Buxton who after listening to my ramblings came up with the perfect bouquets and buttonholes.

Homespun. Benjamin Roberts For A Real Teepee Wedding in Yorkshire – Charlie & Sam

November 12th, 2013 | Julia Braime

WH Photography

On with the pretty as we steam ahead into Tuesday.  This morning we join Brides Up North reader Charlie and her new husband Sam for their homespun celebration under canvas.  From their meaningful ceremony to their Bond style get-a-away (read on) everything about this wedding is fun and fabulous.  I love.

Charlie says:  Sam asked me to marry him on Primrose Hill in London last July, and we were married on 24th August 2013.

We were married in my home church in Swanland, and our reception was in tipis at a boat club in Brough.  From the off we were keen to have a marquee wedding as we liked the idea of being able to personalise it. We loved the tipis as soon as we saw them, so from there it was a case of finding somewhere to put them! My family does a lot of sailing at Welton Waters and it wasn’t an obvious choice but it turned out to be a brilliant one.

I knew I wanted a lace dress before I started searching, After doing a bit of shopping we took a chance trip to the Bridal Factory Outlet in Northallerton where we ended up buying my dress by Benjamin Roberts for half its original price! I then hunted around for some matching lace, and asked a friend to add it to the bottom of the dress, as well as adding some buttons to the back and altering the neckline.

I also really wanted a lace trim veil, but they cost a lot of money! So I bought some veiling tulle and over 10m of lace trim and my mum very patiently sewed it all on. My top tip if you do it this way is to wash the veil a few times with fabric softener as it makes the veil much softer, like some of the more expensive veils.

My shoes were gold glittery peep toes from Dorothy Perkins!

WH Photography

I had an idea in my head of what I wanted my bridesmaids to wear, so I found a pattern, bought some fabric and found a dressmaker to make them. I had seven bridesmaids, and between them they wore four different shades of blue. I made them each a little belt in a nude colour to match their shoes, by sewing some motifs that I found on Etsy to some satin ribbon.

The groomsmen wore grey suits from Greenwoods, with a waistcoat and ruche in two different shades of blue to match the bridesmaids.

The best part of the day was definitely the service. We both love God and believe that our vows were made with him at the centre so this was the most important part of the day for us. It was so overwhelming to see so many friends and family, and it was really nice to have tea and cake after the service for everyone who came to the wedding.

We didn’t really have a theme but we wanted to keep things rustic and a bit different. In hindsight, the theme could probably be ‘homemade’, as just about everything had a homemade touch, from the orders of service and seating plan, to the floral garlands (achieved through my mum’s creation of ‘oasis’ sausages’) and bunting.

WH Photography

WH Photography

One of the best things about our wedding was how brilliant all our different suppliers were,

Totally Tipi were so friendly throughout the whole process, and were always willing to meet our requests. And the tipis were just fantastic on the day.

Our food was done by Feast Yorkshire and everyone has said how amazing it was. Siobhan who runs Feast Yorkshire studied art before going into catering, and so her food doesn’t just taste amazing – it looks amazing too.

Luisianna’s Bars provided us with our drinks – Ben and the team were so friendly and provided a brilliant service on the day.

WH Photography

WH Photography

For our table names we decided to use names of all the streets where we’ve lived. We have always lived in different places, so we thought it would be nice if people could learn a bit about both of us – so we wrote a little bit about each place on the back of each of the street signs.

A good friend of mine is the lead singer of a brilliant York-based band called Bluephunk. We knew they could get everyone dancing!

One of the coolest parts of our day was our exit.. on a speed boat. We tried to keep it a secret so it was a good surprise for our guests.

WH Photography

WH Photography

Sam organised the honeymoon as a surprise, and I didn’t find out until I got to the airport. He took me to the north coast of Italy for a week, and then to Sicily for a few days.

WH Photography

WH Photography

My top tip for other Brides Up North would be that if you are doing a homemade wedding, try and get as much as you can done by the day before the day before so you can take in everything that is happening.

It is true that the day goes too fast, but remember that the end of the day is the beginning of your marriage.

WH Photography

Congratulations Charlie & Sam!

Reassuringly Rustic. A Styled Inspiration Shoot At Camp Katur

September 18th, 2013 | Julia Braime

JB Creatives

This morning we are in Yorkshire for a (the title of this post says it all) reassuringly rustic styled wedding inspiration shoot sent to me by Amy and Nigel of The Greenhouse Florist, Ripon and Jane of JB Creatives.  Both companies are exhibiting at Brides Up North’s Luxury & Vintage Grand Wedding Exhibition at The National Railway Museum, York on Sunday 17th November 2013, so you can check out their talents first-hand then.  Click here to pre-register.

For now though, be assured that with Amy and Nigel on floral décor, vintage props and venue styling and Jane taking care of photography and stationery (plus a very special venue) that this was always going to be cool, quirky and utterly original. 

JB Creatives

Amy and Nigel say:  We really enjoyed working with Jane and Kerry for this photo shoot. The Barn at Camp Katur is a fantastic venue within such an inspiring woodland setting. With all the fantastic glamping tents in the woods it makes for a perfect and unforgettable wedding venue.

JB Creatives

JB Creatives

We brought the woodland into the barn with the use of touches such as the tree branches hung from the rafters with ferns in mossed pots hanging down. The stag head worked brilliantly above our faux fireplace, created from wooden veg crates. I chose the bright summery tones of coral Peonies and blue Thistle and Delphiniums to add touches of colour to the lace covered banquet table piled with old books. There were arrangements in vintage flower pots and larger glass containers covered in chicken wire. The shiny silver candle sticks were added to give the impression of opulence in times gone by.

Under The Sky. Sophia Tolli For A Real Wedding In Yorkshire – Nicola & Mike

September 3rd, 2013 | Julia Braime

Pixies In The Cellar

This afternoon’s Real Wedding – with images by Pixies In The Cellar – is cool and classy and conducted under a blustery Yorkshire sky.  An outdoor ceremony is always special, but with our British summertime, it’s also downright brave.  Luckily Nicola and Mike’s gamble paid off, as the sun shone for their stunning celebration at The Saddleworth Hotel

Pixies In The Cellar

Nicola says:  We got engaged in The Maldives in June 2011 and were married on Saturday 3rd August 2013 at The Saddleworth Hotel.  It’s an amazing setting and the venue has great staff – overall, truly everything we wanted in a wedding venue!

Pixies In The Cellar

We didn’t really have a colour scheme – everything was kept neutral with white, grey and black. The only hint of colour was pale, blush pink roses dotted amongst the cream in the bouquets.

Pixies In The Cellar

My dress was a Sophia Tolli design, a little vintage with delicate straps and beautiful back detail. It was purchased from Society Brides in Liverpool.

Pixies In The Cellar

My bridesmaids wore slate grey shift dresses from Bride to Be by Hannah Lois  and I added an ivory coloured sash to these to match their shoes and bags. The groomsmen wore slate grey suits from Swarbricks with dark grey cravats and waistcoats to tie in with the sash on the bridesmaid’s dresses.

I stayed at the venue the night before and Michael was picked up by the owner of The Saddleworth Hotel in a vintage Rolls Royce convertible.

The ceremony was gorgeous – the best part of the day for both of us. It was so lovely and really did feel personal to us.

Pixies In The Cellar

As a surprise, I wrote a personal reading to Michael telling the story of us in the form of a poem. I’d gone through the process of ‘choosing one’ with him so he didn’t have a clue until one of my bridesmaids started reading it. It made the ceremony so personal and there was barely a dry eye in the house.

To add to this, turns out he’d done the same and wrote me a poem as part of his speech – a truly in sync couple.

Our beautiful flowers were by Kelly Louise.  I carried a hand tied bouquet of white, cream and pale pink roses and this was echoed in our centrepieces.

We chose a very simple three tier, white iced cake from Slattery’s. The only detail was a small grey ribbon and row of pearls placed around the bottom of each tier to tie in with our overall details and theme.

The honeymoon was planned all as a surprise by Michael – literally until we arrived at the airport. He planned the whole thing and didn’t tell a single person.  We went to New York then on to Maroma Beach, Mexico

Pixies In The Cellar

My top tip for other Brides Up North is to enjoy every second and make sure you spend as much of it as possible with one another – it truly is the most magical day you could wish for, make sure you share it together

Congratulations Nicola & Mike!

Sound The Bugles! The Venue Hunt Has Commenced…

May 27th, 2013 | Julia Braime

.

And you thought I was going to ease you back in gently after the bank holiday break, eh?  Incorrect.

.

This afternoon, we are going hard (or going home) and getting one big thing ticked off that to-do list – your wedding venue.  Dropping by to talk you through it is our regular guest blogger Rachel of Mosaic Brides.  Notepads – and cheque books – at the ready people… 

.

DINE LEAFLET

Allerton Castle, North Yorkshire by Chris Chambers Photography

.

Rachel says:  Last week I received a picture message of a sparkly diamond on the ring finger of a pretty manicured hand. I knew without even looking at the sender’s name that the perfectly polished hand belonged to my beautician friend Jo. Sure enough her boyfriend James had whisked her away to a romantic hotel in North Yorkshire where he popped the question in a plush roll top bath, complete with bubbles and fizz.

.

When meeting up with Jo this week to hear more about the proposal (I’m a sucker for a soppy engagement story) I handed her a useful engagement pressie rather than the expected bottle of champagne. It was a cute wedding planner book from Marks & Spencer titled ‘Lots of Lovely Ideas For A Very Big Day’ with dedicated areas for the guest list, contacts, the budget and checklists as well as pages to record wardrobe, reception and ceremony details. So where to begin?

.

For Jo and many others it’s the venue. This is often the biggest expense and one of the most important factors of a wedding as it sets the scene for the big day. Therefore it’s well worth researching all the fantastic venues available (particularly in the North, of course) to ensure you find one that ticks all the boxes.

Hotels remain a top choice, often favoured for their package deals and on site facilities, but changes in the law and the amazing creativity of suppliers have made the previously impossible, possible when it comes to dream wedding venues.

.

So what are the options beyond the church in the UK and what should you take into consideration when doing your research?

.

.

Something Old

.

We are fortunate to have many stunning historic venues in the UK that are licensed for civil ceremonies. Options include castles, country houses, listed halls and stately homes. Such venues tend to ooze character and charm meaning little décor is required which can make a big saving. Their rooms are often of large proportions providing plenty of space for big guest numbers though those planning more modest celebrations should not be put off as smaller, more intimate rooms are often available.

.

.

Perfectly Packaged

.

Most hotels or independent venues hold a civil license giving couple’s the straightforward option of having their celebrations all in one place which can eliminate travel costs from the budget altogether. It’s important to ask what’s included in the price such as room hire, the registrar and the wedding breakfast, also ask if there is a minimum guest requirement and how prices vary on different days of the week and throughout the year. To make the plans even more manageable the hotel may well have a list of recommended suppliers that you can use which can save you both time and money. Be sure to enquire about exclusivity – if you want the place to yourselves there can be an additional charge.

Blank Canvas

.

Marquees and tepees continue to rise in popularity with couples won over by the prospect of having a plain backdrop to go to town on for a unique and stylish celebration. While you can’t legally get married in marquee or tipi as it’s not a permanent structure, you can throw a flippin’ good party in one afterwards. The styling possibilities are endless from cute bunting and bundles of hay to natural blooms and twinkly fairy lights. Some also offer the option to create individual areas for dancing, dining and chilling, complete with cosy fur throws and roaring fires. Though a marquee or tepee might seem a cheaper option, additional costs such as the fee to plant it on someone’s land and essentials such as toilets, heating and electricity can see the price creep up.

Let’s Go Outside

.

My friend Jo has her heart set on a relaxed outdoor wedding with lots of live music. While some venues do have gazebos, band-stands and the like licensed four outdoor weddings, those craving a more adventurous or quirky backdrop may still be able to secure their dream setting by doing the legal ‘I do’ bit separate. This means simply booking into the registry office prior to the outdoor celebrations for the legal formalities which can take as little as 20 minutes. A celebrant can then conduct a more personal ceremony in front of your guests at your chosen outdoor wedding setting whether it’s on the beach, a woodland location or amongst the ruins of a castle.

.

Dare To Be Different

.

Changes in legislation have opened up the doorways to many unusual settings for couples to tie the knot in. Out of the ordinary options include museums, theatres, restaurants, sporting venues, private residences and art galleries.

.

.

Happy hunting!

Super Fly! A Real Wedding In North Wales – Eleanor & Paul

February 26th, 2013 | Julia Braime

.

Photography by Helen Venables

.

.

I should probably count my blessings that it isn’t sleeting, but I couldn’t let another dull, grey Tuesday finish without bringing you another beautiful Real Wedding

.

As it turns out, I had something rather special up my sleeve all along.  Eleanor and Paul’s big day (planned to perfection by Brides Up North Featured Supplier, Andrea of Fabulous Day) is cool, colourful, under canvas and full of surprise details.  Look out overhead!  And I say, let the sun shine!

.

With images by Helen Venables

Eleanor says:  Paul asked me to marry him in January 2012 in Central Park in New York and we were married on 15th September 2012 at  Llanasa Church in North Wales and then had the reception in the grounds of my family home “Bryngwyn” in Axton, North Wales. 

.

.

Photography by Helen Venables

.

.

Three generations of my family have grown up at Bryngwyn and it’s a place that holds so many special memories. We didn’t look at any other wedding venues – there wasn’t really any question as to where we would have the reception – we were just really lucky that my parents were so accommodating!

.

However the idea of traditional ‘white marquee’ wedding really did not appeal – for us it was too formal and restrictive. As soon as we found Event In A Tent and their teepees we knew we’d found the perfect solution as they were original, unique, fitted in with the look of the farm and suited our personalities.

.

.

We really wanted to make a good first impression! We worked with Design Your Day who helped us deliver really unique wedding stationery. Paul is a pilot, with a lifelong obsession with planes so on Design Your Day’s suggestion we adopted the concept of ‘travel’ as our theme. The wedding invites were printed on luggage labels, with personalised photomontage postcards as RSVPs. We also used a small plane motif within the design which was then incorporated into the rest of the wedding stationary. We bound the invites and RSVP cards with specially designed ‘All you need is love’ cotton ribbon. This tag line also had wider connotations for us given that we met in Liverpool and love the Beatles and we incorporated it in other parts of the day. We also included the luggage tags within our table plan.

.

.

.

.

We had no specific colour scheme- the one thing we didn’t want was uniformity. We wanted it to look seasonal – with all the colours reflecting the country location.

.

.

.

.

My dress was lace and off the shoulder and I got it from Cheshire Brides in Frodsham. I really struggled to find a dress, however all the clichés were true, and when I saw my dress I fell in love with it!

.

The bridesmaids wore dresses from Maids to Measure. My bridesmaids were a range of shapes and sizes and I wanted everyone to feel comfortable in their dresses – I chose the colour and then, together with Maids to Measure, everyone designed their own dresses. Each dress was then handmade and tailored to them. They looked great! The groomsmen hired their suits from Swarbricks in Manchester. The range of stock they held made sure that everyone’s suits all fitted perfectly!

.

.

.

I carried sunflowers, together with mixed herbs and lavender by David Wayman Flowers – with the bridesmaids carrying smaller versions. Paul went for a mixed herb button hole. We also decorate the church with lots of sunflowers and at the reception we had lots of wild flowers throughout the tables.

.

.

.

For both of us, saying our vows were a really special moment. Also the fact that we had both organised surprises for the other throughout the day was really special.  Originally we had planned to use friends’ cars as wedding transport. However, unbeknown to me, Paul arranged for a horse and carriage to transport me to and from the church. This was a childhood dream and a complete surprise (and created lots of tears)!

.

Unbeknown to Paul and all the guests, I arranged for an aerobatic display at the reception by Mark Jefferies Air Displays – which was incredible. Everyone was in complete awe of the stunts by the reigning European aerobatic champion. We later heard that it brought traffic to a standstill over 10 miles away!

Helen Venables was our amazing photographer and we also had a wedding film created for us by Lemongrove Productions. The careful edit was perfect and captured so many happy moments. We didn’t originally think we’d get a video but on reflection, its one of our most treasured things from the day.

We were so lucky to have a very accommodating vicar who was more then happy for us to arrange for an owl to fly the rings down the isle when we exchanged our rings! ‘Snowy’ landed on the arm of my little brother, with the rings and it all went without a hitch. None of our guests knew about this and the look of surprise on their faces was brilliant!

For us, detail (and a few surprises!) were central to our day. For the decor this ranged from personalised rosette name places (I am a keen horse rider), personalised ‘Mr and Mrs’ Bunting, handmade personalised flower crates (made by Paul’s dad), personalised aprons for our nominated carvers during the meal, handmade lanterns, personalised dog outfits (!) and signs. We also had lots of hay bales scattered around as additional outdoor seating and provided blankets which came in handy when it got chilly later in the evening.

We chose a brilliant band called Under the Covers. They played for us in the afternoon too whilst everyone was gathering for canapés.  We also had a photo booth from Picture Blast which was fun!

Straight after the wedding we went for a mini-moon to Cephalonia.  We are planning a trip to Antarctica later this year!

.

.

Our top tip for other Brides Up North would be to consider hiring a wedding planner! We totally underestimated the amount of planning that goes into having a wedding at home – and it never once crossed our minds that we have to arrange and plan for things like generators, toilets and outside catering requirements! Luckily we managed to secure the services of Andrea Swift at Fabulous Day. Andrea was amazing. She took all the stress away from the planning process we meant that we could concentrate on the little details as ultimately we cared a lot more about the small touches and making things personal to us.
