Real Wedding Recap Winter 2013: You & Me, Always. Jenny Packham Aspen For A Real Wedding At Priory Cottages – Charlotte & Matt

December 19th, 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. 

Richard Wynn Davies

It’s a special one for me today as I’m sharing the wedding of two of my very best friends – Charlotte and Smithy (known formally as Matthew, Mathlete or whatever Charlotte feels like calling him).  Sod the leftover baby-weight, I was honoured to be a bridesmaid at Charlotte and Matt’s amazing, sun dapped celebration at the stunning Priory Cottages in Wetherby.

A woman who knows her own mind, Charlotte’s wedding was never going to be the same as everyone else’s.  Matt proposed on a group ski trip February 2012 and after all the excitement had died down, Charlotte looked me in the eye over a cafe au chocolat, and asked me to be her bridesmaid, adding:

“I’m going to ask all the guys to wear coloured chinos, and I want everyone in featherhead dresses and a rainbow cake”.  This was going to get interesting…

Budget summits – “Jules, persuade Matt that I need the Jimmy Choos, he listens to you” (she got them, he does) – dress dramas – a thousand “talking it over” cocktails and  a million Pinterest pins later, the wedding day arrived.  And I have to tell you, it was one of the most beautiful days that I have ever seen.  From a professional wedding blogger, that’s saying something.  The brand new Mrs Smith isn’t just a pretty face!

Charlotte says:  Matt asked me to marry him in February 2012, in an igloo in Mayerhofern whilst skiing for Jules’ 30th!  We tied the knot on 6th July 2013 at our local church, Saint Mary’s of Stainburn then reception was at Priory Cottages, Wetherby.

Originally we wanted to wed in the South of France. The venue looks like it could be in the South of France; It is gorgeous, it is a blank canvas (you don’t have to follow rules e.g what you have to drink, what the room will look like – rules which sometimes hotels impose) and you can exercise your creativity as you please. I wanted our wedding to be unique and creative, and we felt it the venue was perfect for this.

Serena, the venue manager is amazing… I think that’s the only word for her.

We asked our guests to wear loud and colourful chinos – we wanted the photos to look colourful, a little crazy and be lots of fun. In the evening I asked people to bring masks… for our own masquerade ball.  We wanted to keep to tradition but shake it up a touch.

Our colour theme was colourful (!) and we went with nude/ pale pink colours, for bridesmaids. We then added bold colour in the marquee with duck egg blue and turquoise.

My flowers were bright pastel colours, as was our cake. I didn’t stick to a specific scheme as such, I just tried to use complementing colours, and colours that worked well with skin tones and together.

I fell in love with the Jenny Packham Aspen, the moment I saw it. It was the second dress I tried on.  After weeks trying on many other dresses, it confirmed that Aspen was for me!  The dress was stunning, comfy, and light, just what you need on a hot summers day.  I was very conscious of not feeling too hot, or restricted. And, I wanted to make sure I wasn’t corseted so I could eat as much delicious canapés, plated BBQ and fish & chips!

I then chose a gorgeous sparkly pair of Jimmy Choos – I worked on the basis that I can wear a fabulous pair of shoes again and again; this is better than spending a smaller amount on a pair that will only get used once. Pounds per wear! 

I wore my grandma’s grandma’s silver clasp bracelet. It was my ‘something old’ and made my outfit really special.

I then added a long veil, with crystals which was sparkly in a subtle way and I had a pearl hair slide hand made by a designer in Yorkshire.

Richard Wynn Davies

The bridesmaids wore wrap dressed by Eliza and Ethan at Pookie, Harrogate. The girls had gypsophila in their hair and wore nude shoes of their choice.

Our groomsmen wore specially commissioned bow ties, Paul Smith style in pink floral, suits from Marks & Spencer & brightly coloured braces (the brighter the better- of their choice).

We travelled by vintage Rolls Royce. My mum also had a vintage Daimler, and the bridesmaid travelled in a vintage VW Campervan.

The whole day was amazing, from getting ready, to the church, throwing confetti, the food, the dancing… I would have to say one of my favourite memories was arriving at the reception, following the church and seeing everyone in the courtyard waiting to greet us!

The driver sounded his horn, and everyone cheered and waved. The colours were spectacular, we were handed our blue cocktails, and we could hear the steel band playing.

We had a BBQ and the summer Olympics (sports day) the night before the wedding.  This was great fun and was a chance to catch up with guests ahead of the wedding. This was a great tactic!

We made our own cake- well Matt and my grandmas made the cakes! I chose a traditional fruit cake. It was decorated by a family friend, and was going to have white chocolate truffles on the side in pastel colours. However, because the weather was so hot, we had to change the truffles last minute to icing! The cake also leaned a touch!

Richard Wynn Davies

The wedding party spent hours tying 100 lanterns to the marquee roof with ribbons, and tied ribbons to the chairs. More hands make light work, and I think we did a great job!

Richard Wynn Davies

I had to ensure we had fabulous food and drink all day. This was the most important thing for me- great food.  We used MCK Catering.

We had a plated BBQ of fillet steak, lamb and prawns, with sauté potatoes for our wedding breakfast. Friends of Ham, Leeds supplied the beer. We chose a Yorkshire white wine, which was delicious- Lethenthorpe.

Later on in the evening, we wanted people to have traditional beer munchies- fish & chips with a twist. (tapas with lime and chilli batter).

Our wedding favours were bags filled with a coin, a teddy bear, a piece of string, a marble a rubber and a heart. Inside was a special message relating to the reasoning behind why the object was included e.g.:- ‘a marble, because we all seem to have lost ours’ ‘a piece of string to bind us together wherever we are in the world.’ The cost of the wedding favours went to a school in Ghana.

We chose a string quartet for the church, a Caribbean Steel Drum band for the reception, and for the evening we had a band.

We honeymooned in the south of France (I secretly wish I was French!)

We stayed at the Hotel Crillon Le Brave in Provence (stunning) saw the Tour de France Stage at Mont Ventoux, visited lavender fields, went horseback riding and then drove in a sports car to the Fairmont in Monte Carlos, via St Tropez, Cannes and Antibes. We chilled out & drank cocktails and hit the Casino of course! We then took the helicopter back to Nice airport.

Fantastic trip; can we do it again?

Richard Wynn Davies

My top tip for other Brides Up North would be don’t be afraid to break the mould and try non- conventional ideas. People will raise eyebrows, but be true to yourself, do what you want to do. You’re a unique individual couple, so be creative!

Richard Wynn Davies

Congratulations Charlotte & Matt!

Coming Up Roses. Pink & Mink For A Real Wedding At Mere Golf & Country Club, Cheshire – Angela & Mark

October 11th, 2013 | Julia Braime

Jonny Draper Photography

Finishing up an exciting week here at Brides Up North HQ with another dose of beautiful, as we join Brides Up North reader Angela and her new husband Mark for their stunning Real Wedding in Knutsford.  Angela offset her gorgeously girly palette with cool minks and an abundance of blooms for a celebration that looks as a fun as it was elegant.

With images by Jonny Draper Photography (a Brides Up North Featured Supplier, don’tcha know)!

Angela says:  Mark surprised me and took me to Paris in February 2012. He didn’t do the traditional Eiffel Tower as he knew I wanted something a bit different so proposed as we were walking along the River Seine.

Jonny Draper Photography

We were married on 30th August 2013 at All Saints Church, Cheadle Hulme and Mere Golf Club, Knutsford.

Mere Golf Club had just been refurbished when we were looking for venues and it was looked lovely and had the views we wanted. One of the other reasons was the neutral carpet, which a lot of other venues didn’t have!

We chose a colour palette of light pinks, mink and ivory.

My dress was from Sense and Sensibility and was my second dress as I had decided the first was not ‘The One’. I saw the second and knew it was right. It was a fitted dress with one shoulder, with a slightly Grecian feel to it.

The bridesmaid dresses were from Coast and our flowergirl’d dress was from BHS.  Our groomsmen wore suits from Moss Bros.

My bouquet – by Red Floral Architecture – was a mass of avalanche roses, enhanced with occasional sweet avalanche, metallina, quicksand and amnesia roses. A diamante section was included within the bouquet in a small crescent shape to match the gown and the headpiece.

We choose to have Howard Wing to entertain the guests throughout the day and into the evening; he also performed our first dance. In the evening we had a photo booth, which was a big hit with the guests.

We wanted different table names rather than the usual number and it worked out nicely that we had seven tables for the seven years we have been together. Each table was Year 1, Year 2 etc. with a photo from that year.

I loved the ceremony but my favourite part was during the meal when Howard entertained us all and when the guests really started to relax and enjoy themselves. The photos just show how much fun we were all having.

We knew that our honeymoon  was once in a lifetime so we fulfilled our dream of going to Australia. We started with a stop off in Singapore and then travelled down the east coast of Australia and then stopped at Bangkok on our way home. It was the best four weeks we have ever had.

My top tip is that once the day is here there is no point worrying. You have done everything you possibly can, this is your day so relax and enjoy every minute of it – have fun!

What A Triumph! Vintage Wheels & Latte Lace For A Real Wedding At Bolton Castle – Jeanette & Nick

July 15th, 2013 | Julia Braime

Rain.  What’s that?  We’ve all been enjoying the heatwave in the UK over the past week, but real bride Jeanette and her new hubby Nick didn’t let a splash of our usual weather spoil their big day at Brides Up North Featured Supplier venue Bolton Castle.  With some hot wheels, rainbow bunting and feathered friends, they brought the outside in for a pretty celebration inside the ancient walls. 

.

Jeanette says:  We got engaged in October 2011 on ‘date night’ at the end of an evening run around Ashridge National Trust Estate in Herts, and were married on 18th May 2013.

We had our wedding ceremony at Bolton Castle, near Leyburn in the Yorkshire Dales. This was followed by a champagne reception at the Castle and then onto Aysgarth Falls Hotel for food and evening entertainment. The Castle setting was brilliant. It was quirky and had the appeal of an old building which was great for photos. Katie who is the contact there couldn’t have been more helpful which was really refreshing. We were able to decorate the room and the views were stunning – even on a rainy day. We were told that it gets quite cold in the room as there is no heating but we had the fire roaring away which just gave it extra ambience!

.

.

We originally wanted an outdoor wedding but in reality there are very few places with the right licence (as yet). We actually had three venues booked at one point but they all fell through for different reasons. So, on a last minute tour of the Dales to find an alternative we came across the Castle and loved it.

.

.

nick_jeanette-76

.

We wanted to keep everything informal and fun so did just that. I didn’t want to turn into Bridezilla!  The bridesmaids were in shocking pink and the best men and ushers sage green which actually went together really well. We had bunting up in the Castle with these colours and a pale yellow and blue too.

.

I got my dress from the Northallerton Bridal Factory Outlet store and everyone said it was amazing! It was satin with lace over the top and covered in sequins to add some sparkle. The bridesmaid dresses were from there too and they looked stunning in them.

.

The guys all wore their own suits so were a few different colours but we got them matching waistcoats and ties from an online store (Formal Tailor). The best men had cravats and the ushers ties.

.

We hired Fidget (the Castle’s barn owl) to deliver our rings down the aisle for us. It was only a small amount extra to arrange and everyone loved it!

I had my flowers made up by Fleurish in Richmond and they were fantastic although I’ve no idea what the flowers actually were!

.

.

nick_jeanette-249

.

We hired a Triumph TR4A for my dad and I to drive to the ceremony in and then after the ceremony, we went for a spin in it and took it onto the top of the dales for some photos. Despite the rain, we did get to drive it with the roof down and again the next day when it was glorious sunshine!

We hired a band called Hudson who were very good. We were a bit uncertain as we hired them via Function Central and only based on their reviews online however we weren’t disappointed.

.

.

.

.

.

We didn’t have a cake – too busy doing everything else! The food was so filling I don’t think anyone even noticed.  We gave the guests Wensleydale cheese truckles and everyone loved them. We stacked them up in lieu of a cake and guests just helped themselves on their way out.

.

.

nick_jeanette-736

.

.

nick_jeanette-749

.

.

The whole day was perfect, even the things which didn’t turn out as you planned. It’s such a fun day that it didn’t matter that I’d forgot to ask the seamstress to add my dress bustle and ended up having to string it up with balloon ribbon!

.

.

nick_jeanette-646

.

.

After the wedding, we went to the Lake District as we’ve got a little girl and didn’t want to be too far away from her, or for too long. The weather wasn’t that great but we still managed to fit lots in such as running up Skiddaw, rowing on Derwent Water, Honistor Pass and mountain biking at Whinlatter.

.

.

nick_jeanette-694

.

.

My top tip for other Brides Up North would be – don’t stress. No one knows what you’ve got planned except yourself so if something doesn’t work out as planned, it’s only really you that notices as the rest of the guests are drinking champagne and having a great time.  Just relax and enjoy it – it really does go too quickly.

.

Congratulations Jeanette & Nick!

Real Wedding Recap Summer 2013: Peony Pink! A Real Wedding In Yorkshire – Michelle & Jon

June 18th, 2013 | Julia Braime

Its holiday season here on the blog, and as the team take a break until to rest and recharge for the second half of what’s set to be the biggest and best year 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 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!

Yorkshire Wedding by Damian Hall Photography

.

.

As soon as this beautiful Real Wedding landed in my inbox, courtesy of Brides Up North Featured Supplier Damian Hall Photography, I got to blogging!  First shared back on Valentine’s Day this year, I couldn’t wait to spread the love with the prettiest pink peonies, the finest of details and the widest of smiles which really make this elegant and romantic country house wedding one to write home about.

Just blissful.

As soon as we arrived at Yorebridge House we fell in love with the boutique hotel. The setting is picture perfect with its beautiful and stylish décor, intimate surroundings and amazing food we knew it was perfect. The best thing was having the entire hotel to ourselves from the moment we arrived on the Friday evening till we checked out on the Sunday morning.

.

We chose an elegant and romantic country wedding theme, with a colour scheme of ivory and pale pink.

I chose ‘Susanna’ by Lyn Ashworth from Choola in Eccleshall, Sheffield. My dress was simply beautiful with a strapless lace bodice and a full silk and organza skirt. In the evening I added a sash to my dress that matched my bridesmaid dresses to make it look a little different.  My gorgeous headdress was by HF Couture.

My bridesmaids wore full length Dessy dresses in persian plum from White Lace & Promises in Slaithwaite, West Yorkshire. My flower girl wore an ivory dress from John Lewis.

We travelled in a silver Bentley Continental Flying Spur from Beaus & Belles.  Our favourite part of the day was getting in the wedding car straight after the ceremony and going for some photographs in the most amazing locations, whilst sipping Veuve Clicquot!

.

.

My flowers – by Mat at Red Floral Architecture – determined the time of year we got married as my favourite flowers are Peonies. I carried a bouquet full of ivory peonies with crystal and pearl detail and my bridesmaids carried bouquets of pale pink peonies with matching pearl detail. My table decorations were masses of pale pink peonies set on tall candelabras with ivory pearls hanging from the candelabras.

We had a signature board with a picture from our pre wedding shoot (arranged through our photographer) for guests to write messages on instead of using a guest book. We had a wedding wish tree where guests hung their well wishes and advice for us to read. Our sweet shop proved very popular and looked really pretty after collecting different vintage jars from our travels.

My top tip for other would be that feeling relaxed and comfortable with your photographer is paramount as they play such an important role on your wedding day with the planning and organisation needed. Our photographer Damian Hall Photography and his Wife Charlotte were amazing, they really made our day extra special and made us enjoy every minute of our wedding day. Their work really does speak for itself; we have the most amazing Queensbury Album that we will enjoy looking at for years to come.
