This morning’s real wedding takes place at Saltmarshe Hall in Yorkshire, a stunning venue at which we host our Luxury Wedding Shows, so if you like what you see, pencil in Sunday 9th April to view this beautiful building for yourselves during our next event.

But for now, let’s enjoy reliving the gorgeous big day of Mark and Nicola, which featured a pretty pink, lavender and antique cream colour scheme, elegant shabby chic touches and incredibly dreamy floral arrangements.

nicola says: Mark proposed to me at our favourite restaurant, Winteringham Fields, when I was eight months pregnant. It’s a fine dining restaurant, where he organised a private room and we stayed in a suite. The ring came out under a cloche during a nine-course tasting menu, which was amazing food. Mark got on one knee and proposed, I said yes but the kitchen staff who were watching on a CCTV camera were unsure whether I had, and dare not come back in the room, which was quite funny.

We married on the 24th June 2016. We chose the date as it we wanted to marry early summer and hoped for some nice weather, which we got!

Our venue was an amazing privately-owned stately Georgian home called Saltmarshe Hall in East Yorkshire. It is quite a new venue; the family have just finished renovating it and actually live there during the week. We chose the venue as the grounds and house were amazing and we literally fell in love with it and didn’t look anywhere else.

We were married by a registrar but then the vicar from our local village, who is a family friend, gave us a religious blessing in the gardens after we formally married, which was nice.

We didn’t have a specific theme for the wedding, we just went for a classic and traditional style with our own personal touches. Our colour scheme was soft shades of pink/lavender and antique cream.

My wedding dress was from It’s Bliss Bridal & Prom Wear in Doncaster. The design was a classic style with corset bodice, organza skirt with pearl and crystal detailing, which I wore with a full-length veil.
