You Are My Resolution. Justin Alexander & A Bird Cage Veil For A New Year’s Eve Real Wedding At Langley Castle – Amy & Anthony

February 20th, 2014 | Julia Braime

Paul Santos Photography

The turn of the year seems so long ago now doesn’t it?  After being deluged by storms and darkness, if anyone’s kept their New Year’s resolutions by now, it’ll be a small miracle, right? 

Well, funnily enough though, for once I have, so allow me a moment of smug!  Mine were simple – stress less, exercise more and prioritise the things (and folk) I love most.  So far I’m on the right track.  How are you checking in?  March is a new month after all…

Two people who are sure to have kept their resolutions and promises are today’s beautiful bride Amy and her new husband Anthony, who said their vows in front of friends and family in Hexham on New Year’s Eve.  This morning they are here to share their celebration with us.

Amy says:  We got engaged on March 29th 2012, we had just been on a ride on the gondolas in Venice when Anthony popped the question.

Paul Santos Photography

We were married on December 31st 2013.  We had the most fantastic ceremony held at Hexham Abbey with a reception at Langley Castle.

We chose our venues based on the history and style of buildings.  We had wanted a very grand wedding with it being New Year’s Eve and wanted a day for everyone to remember.

Hexham Abbey was chosen to hold our ceremony as the religious side of things was taken very seriously at the Abbey making the day very personal, but it was also set in one of the most beautiful churches we have visited in the North East. Langley Castle gave us another grand and elegant building to host our reception and it had such good reviews from previous brides and grooms. The entrance to the castle was a main selling point.

Paul Santos Photography

We didn’t have a theme, we just wanted to create a day to remember.  Most people are at a loose end on New Year’s Eve so we wanted to celebrate the date in locations that people would remember for years to come.

We chose a colour scheme of black, red and ivory. Red was to tie in with the colours of the castle and blacks were to bring in a classic look to go with New Year’s Eve.

After nearly a year of hunting I finally found a dress that was different to anything I had seen.  I went for a fish tail style lace overlay dress designed by Justin Alexander and by one of his private labels so I knew it would be very unlikely that others would have seen this dress. As it is sold only in limited shops across the UK and can’t be viewed on his website, it gave me the exclusive look I had desired. I got my dress from Wild Brides At Heart in Durham City Centre.

Paul Santos Photography

My bridesmaids wore one shoulder Dessy dresses purchased from Isabelles Brides in Easington.  I wanted a classic look to go with the style of wedding and we wanted our maid of honour and best man to stand out so they wore claret red whilst the rest of the groomsmen and bridesmaids wore black. The men wore French Connection evening suits with dicky bow ties for a classic evening look.

Paul Santos Photography

My flowers were put together by Wild and Wonderful Flowers and consisted of deep red roses, black berries and ivory roses to blend in with the colour theme.

I travelled in a Rolls Royce provided by Webbs Special Occasion Cars, and the guests were transported to on a 1900 Routemaster London bus from Henry Cooper Coaches, Northumberland.

My favourite part of the day was our ceremony.  It was so meaningful and very touching.  To add an extra special touch, during the signing of the register we had a recently signed professional opera singer performing which made the ceremony so elegant.

Our wedding cake was kindly made by Anthony’s auntie who makes cakes in her spare time.

We chose Gary James who performs swing and Michael Buble numbers for our entertainment.  Gary sang throughout the meal which was a great touch as it took away the clattering of knifes and forks and helped the meal run even more smoothly.  In the evening we had an acoustic singer called Alex Dobson who put his own spin on various new releases by bands and singers, before going into a traditional disco on the evening.

Following the wedding we jetted off on honeymoon to Lucea, Jamaica.

My top tip for other Brides Up North would be that before booking any suppliers do your research and never book based on price alone.  To ensure quality and value for money we sometimes had to bend our budget, but by doing this we got some of the best suppliers out there who had amazing reviews. Always read reviews before booking!

Paul Santos Photography

Congratulations Amy & Anthony!

Joy To The World. A Backless Anoushka G Gown For A Real Wedding At Quarry Bank Mill – Clare & Lee-John

January 16th, 2014 | Julia Braime

Hayley Baxter Photography

Things are looking really rosy red this week on Brides Up North aren’t they?  First up, the sun baked celebration of Annie and Lee yesterday, and now a complete about turn with today’s stunning winter Real Wedding.  Shot by Hayley Baxter Photography, Clare and Lee-John’s big day had all the hallmarks of the perfect Christmas wedding – red berries, a feather cape, a dress to die for, Christmas pudding, a ruby red carriage and a partridge in a pear tree!

Hayley Baxter Photography

Clare says:  We got engaged on 16 August 2013, in North Wales and were married on 21 December 2013 at Norcliffe Chapel, Styal with our reception at Quarry Bank Mill. 

Hayley Baxter Photography

Hayley Baxter Photography

We visited the National Trust village and Mill in June 2013 and both absolutely loved the church and the imposing architecture of the Mill itself.  Mandi and her team at the Mill were so helpful and were happy to assist in any way possible.

Hayley Baxter Photography

We chose a Christmas theme, we sang carols in the church and had mulled wine and mince pies at the drinks reception instead of canapés.  We decorated the Mill ourselves with fairy lights, Christmas garlands and Christmas trees, including edible decorations and a gingerbread house.  The table centres were hurricane vases with candles, holly, ivy, cinnamon, pine – all natural flowers and seasonal.

The colours were dark green and red.  The green was chosen to incorporate the Bride’s Irish roots and the red for the groom’s Welsh roots.  The bridesmaids wore dark green and the groomsmen all wore red ties and hankies.  The bouquets were gorgeous red and green with grand prix roses for the bride and tulips for the bridesmaids and flower girls.

Hayley Baxter Photography

Hayley Baxter Photography

My dress was called Hazel by Anoushka G. I love it! I bought it from Lace Bridal in Hale who were so helpful. I am not a keen shopper and had given myself one day and two bridal shops to find my dream dress – I didn’t have to search for long… it was the first dress I tried on and it could not be matched! It was cut on the bias with mini capped embroidered sleeves with a cowl scoop at the back.

I had an oyster feather shrug to keep me warm too.  I wore my wellies into the church as the path down was muddy and I didn’t want to spoil my Jimmy Choos!

Flossy & Leigh made all the bridal party’s hair and make up look fabulous and I wore a bespoke hair piece designed by Ann McKaveney of Eleventh Heaven.

Hayley Baxter Photography

My two adult bridesmaids wore a dark green maxi dress from Coast and the three flower girls wore gorgeous white dressed from Debenhams.  They all had gorgeous fur shrugs for warmth and the two littlest flower girls wore White Uggs boots.

The groomsmen wore hired suits from Slaters in Manchester. They were dark grey tails with waistcoat and their own classic white shirts with bright red ties and hankies.

Hayley Baxter Photography

We hired a beautiful red and cream vintage car supplied by Love & Carriage.

Red Hot. Benjamin Roberts & Roses For A Destination Wedding In Cyprus – Annie & Lee

January 15th, 2014 | Julia Braime

Mandy and Louis Christodoulou

Brides Up North might know them better as members of the fantastic party band Func On The Rocks (trust me, I’ve partied with them – these guys really do rock, if you are looking for a band, check them out!) but today Annie and Lee are here to share their own wedding celebration on these pages, choosing a romantic red theme for their sunny big day in Cyprus.  Just what the doctor ordered on a cold Wednesday morning!

Annie says: Our’s is a real life ‘girl next door’ story. Lee was in a band with my housemate at the time and he moved in next door with another fellow band member. I used to go to a lot of their gigs and for a long time I was so shy around him that I couldn’t even make eye contact because I thought he was so hot! Eventually our eyes met after many fun nights out and the rest is history. Six years on, the bass player and lead singer were actually best man and maid of honour at our wedding.

Mandy and Louis Christodoulou

Mandy and Louis Christodoulou

After much pondering we decided to get married in Cyprus as we’ve had many memorable holidays there and have always had a soft spot for it.

Mandy and Louis Christodoulou

Mandy and Louis Christodoulou

We wanted somewhere private and intimate, for just us and our nearest and dearest. We fell in love with Vasilias Nikoklis Inn, near Paphos as soon as we saw it and knew it was perfect. It had everything we wanted, true authentic Greek family run business with delicious home cooked food and beautiful surroundings. It’s tucked away from all of the touristy hustle and bustle, at the foot of the Troodos mountains. You can’t beat waking up the morning after your wedding to a view like that.

Mandy and Louis Christodoulou

My dress was a Benjamin Roberts design, bought from the lovely ladies at Confetti and Lace in Stanningley, Leeds.

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.

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!

Red Berries In Her Hair. A Real Wedding At Longhirst Hall, Northumberland – Cristina & Kevin

December 12th, 2013 | Julia Braime

Leighton Bainbridge Photography

Brides Up North reader Cristina is clearly a lady who likes her own way, and her beautiful Celtic influenced wedding in Northumberland shows that when it comes to your wedding – your way is the right way.  Delicious.  

With images by Leighton Bainbridge Photography

Leighton Bainbridge Photography

Cristina says:  We didn’t get engaged as such. As I always said I would never got married, Kevin gave up  but one day I realised that I wanted to marry him (when you find the right person), so I started suggesting places where I’d like to do it, but he always thought I was joking. One day I just said ‘Hey, I changed my mind, right?’ so on the 28th of April 2012 we agreed! In June, for my birthday, he gave me a beautiful Celtic engagement ring.

Leighton Bainbridge Photography

We got married on the 21st of July 2013 at Longhirst Hall near Morpeth.  We chose a Sunday because it was easier for the Spanish party to travel on the Saturday/Friday. I spent the whole year wishing for a sunny day, as I didn’t want to hear my family complaining about English summer. It was warm and perfect!

Leighton Bainbridge Photography

Leighton Bainbridge Photography

Kevin asked me if I wanted to get married in Spain and I didn’t. I hate weddings at the registrar office, and that’s the only option if you don’t want a church wedding. I saw a brochure about weddings in Northumberland, and checked some places. We both liked Longhirst and went for a look around. We fell in love with this 19th Century building, and having accommodation was perfect, as we had people travelling, so we booked it!

Leighton Bainbridge Photography

Leighton Bainbridge Photography

Leighton Bainbridge Photography

We started planning this wedding with some Celtic elements in mind (like the rings), but it ended up being a little bit of everything we like.  We chose a burgundy and black colour scheme. 

Leighton Bainbridge Photography

Leighton Bainbridge Photography

Leighton Bainbridge Photography

I had a bouquet of burgundy calla lilies and roses and my bridesmaids carried only calla lilies, which were the flower for the buttonholes too. The first time I saw this sort of flower I knew I wanted it for my wedding, but lots of florists overcharge you for it. We went to a wedding fair and we met Greener Interiors; they offer very interesting packages which included this flower, so we were really happy. When I first saw my bouquet, I couldn’t believe how perfect it was!

Leighton Bainbridge Photography

As I never thought I would get married, I didn’t have any ideas about what dress I wanted to have for my wedding. I knew I would get it in Spain, as I wanted my mum and my sister to be there with me. I went for a weekend to Madrid and we used one day to visit as many shops as possible. We were in the street, making time for the next appointment, when I guy gave us a flyer from a shop we didn’t know, called Nathaly Novias… my dress was waiting there! I chose a few to try on, but not ‘The One’. However, the girl thought I would like it, and I loved it! Its a romantic dress, mostly lace, with a medieval touch: just perfect for me.

I wore the most beautiful shoes, from Irregular Choice.  I wanted something different, and something I could wear again after the wedding…they make amazing shoes.

Leighton Bainbridge Photography

My bridesmaids (my sister and a friend) wore black long dresses from a shop in Spain called Vertize.  They are very different girls, so it was hard to get a dress both would be happy with. My friend Cristina wouldn’t wear a light colour dress, and my sister didn’t want a short dress. I thought black was the easiest colour (which sort of decided the colour scheme) and we went together to choose it. It was a very simple but elegant dress.

Kevin, his best man and my dad all wore a Jeff Banks light grey suit bought from Debenhams. Kevin wore a burgundy waistcoat to look more ‘special’.

Leighton Bainbridge Photography

We tried to personalise as much as we could. We chose to have two readings during the ceremony (done by both Mums), and I have to say that the entrance music was a bit special

Leighton Bainbridge Photography

Leighton Bainbridge Photography

Kevin’s niece works in a hairdresser’s in Ashington (Venue Hair Salon) and her boss is also a friend of the family; so she was invited to the wedding too. They did my and my bridesmaids hair as a wedding present. We didn’t have a hair trial, but they’re awesome and did our hair just the way we wanted. Leah at Make Up By Leah did my make-up on the day and she was fantastic.

Leighton Bainbridge Photography

Leighton Bainbridge Photography

We chose Leighton Bainbridge to take our photos. We weren’t going to get a photographer, as part of our family are media people and they offered to do it, but we realised that it wasn’t fair on them, because they couldn’t enjoy the day and we wouldn’t get enough photos because they were there as guests.

We found Leighton on the net, and we decided to book him. We had a first meeting to decide some things, and we had a pre-wedding shoot a month before the wedding. This was a great opportunity to get to know each other and feel comfortable on the wedding day (and we got some amazing pictures). When we saw the photos from the day, they were so perfect. 

Leighton Bainbridge Photography

We handmade as many things as possible, not just to save some money, but because I wanted to be involved and I used it as a break from my PhD. All the stationery had to be made in two languages, and it was quite hard to find a supplier that made half in English and half in Spanish. I made the invitations, a program with the whole ceremony translated in Spanish for those who wouldn’t understand a word.

We made the favours – mini bottles of Spanish wine/cava, with some Swiss chocolates – and a heart brooch for the girls. We also made some labels to add to the bottles and my sister made some lovely ‘bride & groom’ pegs to add to the favours.

I made the seating plan and we had every table named after a Northumbrian castle. The centrepieces were white birdcages with some dried flowers (which we dried for months in the house) and my mum made some table runners. We added some mini Spanish/English dictionaries for the wedding breakfast.

Leighton Bainbridge Photography

Leighton Bainbridge Photography

After the meal we had a pub quiz; We thought it would be a great way to get people to know each other and interact a bit, as each table from the meal was a different team. For the night-time, I put together a sweet table, with jars and candles we collected through the year; it looked lovely.

 Leighton Bainbridge Photography

We decided to get a two tiered cake: the bottom tier was vanilla and strawberries and the top one was carrot cake (my favourite). We wanted something different, so we asked Nicola, from ‘A Zombie Stole My Cupcake’ (from Bedlington), to make us a black cake! Then she added some Celtic decorations in burgundy, and it looked lush… it was a big surprise for the guests. For the evening buffet, she made some lovely cupcakes, in two flavours: mint choc chip and cookies and cream. We couldn’t ask anything better than this, she did a great job!

Leighton Bainbridge Photography

Leighton Bainbridge Photography

Leighton Bainbridge Photography

As there were a few children at the wedding, we decided at the last moment to get a bouncy castle, and not just the kids enjoyed it!

For the night, we had a DJ, but we made our own playlist, as we are a bit ‘fussy’ about music, and we really wanted to dance! We prepared CD’s with the playlist for everyone to take home; we still get messages about how great the compilation is.  Kevin brought his guitar with him, and he played a few songs (my nephew, who is five, is his number one fan, so he was over the moon).

Leighton Bainbridge Photography

Leighton Bainbridge Photography

We went to Crete and Santorini for our honeymoon. We had lots of different destinations in mind, but we have both wanted to go there for years, before we met, and see the Palace at Knossos, and we thought it was the perfect occasion for it. We had a great time.

Leighton Bainbridge Photography

Leighton Bainbridge Photography

My top tip for other Brides Up North would be to follow your heart; I had people trying to change my mind about some decisions I made for the day, but it never worked… remember, it’s your day! And during the day try to enjoy every single second, it really flies by!

Leighton Bainbridge Photography

 

Congratulations Cristina & Kevin!

Roses Are Red. An Elegant Real Wedding At Dissington Hall – Sam & Rob

September 26th, 2013 | Julia Braime

Andy Hudson Photography

This afternoon it’s off to Northumberland, to join Sam and Rob for their glorious big day at Dissington Hall.  Sam’s Real Wedding was simple and elegant, with romantic red roses popping up on every corner.  Bloomin’ beautiful. 

With images by Andy Hudson Photography

Andy Hudson Photography

Sam says:  We first got engaged on 6th July 2012 in Edinburgh where Rob had moved to a month earlier. I got a beautiful diamond solitaire ring but it was too big so had to be resized. I was proposed to again on 13th July with a lovely meal and bottle of bubbly. Then a few months later, we were sitting in Princes Street Gardens in Edinburgh and Rob proposed again! So we got engaged three times!

Andy Hudson Photography

Our wedding date was Saturday 27th July 2013.  We got married at St Michael and All Angels church in Newburn then had our reception at Dissington Hall.  We chose the church as it was where my mum and dad got married. We chose Dissington Hall because it’s such a beautiful building and the staff were absolutely fantastic. We couldn’t fault the service we got at Dissington.

Andy Hudson Photography

We wanted a simple, elegant wedding and chose a colour scheme of ivory and deep red.

I wore a stunning lace, fish tail dress. It was the complete opposite to what I thought I would want but as soon as I put it on, I knew it was the one for me. It was from Berketex Bride in Newcastle and was designed by Sasha Perez.

Andy Hudson Photography

My sister and Rob’s sister were my bridesmaids and wore simple 1950’s style dresses. They were a deep red colour, had cowl backs and were beautiful. They were from the Dessy collection and were bought from Rosina Brown Bridal Boutique in Hexham. Rob, both dads, our best man and groomsmen wore grey morning suits from Moss Bros.

Andy Hudson Photography

A good friend of mine, Bonnie Shaw is a Soprano so sang whilst we were signing the register. It was beautiful and so many of the guests commented on how fantastic she was. We had a DJ for the disco and it was a company called After Eight Music.

Andy Hudson Photography

I loved saying my vows. I managed not to cry all the way through but did get a little choked. Saying my vows was the most important part of the day and the part I enjoyed the most. There were so many other special moments… my dad’s speech, Rob’s speech and simply watching everyone having a great time. That meant the world.

Andy Hudson Photography

I had a posy of Grand Prix red roses and my bridesmaids had smaller posy of ivory Avalanche roses. They were all bound with ivory ribbon and held with diamanté pins. As an extra to mine, my something ‘borrowed’ and ‘blue’ was a blue ring that my dad gave to my mum for her 21st. It was too big for me to wear so our florist Margaret from Foxtail Lily Flowers tied it to the stems of my bouquet. It was a lovely touch.

Andy Hudson Photography

We had one wedding car to take Mum and the bridesmaids and then Dad and I to church. It was a silver Jaguar S Type from Rickerby Chauffeurs in Newcastle. James, who owns the business, was our chauffeur and he was amazing.  We had a red, vintage double decker bus to take the guests, wedding party and Rob and I to the reception!

We haven’t had a honeymoon yet as I moved up to Edinburgh three days after the wedding! We’re saving up and hoping to go to New York in the Spring.

Andy Hudson Photography

Andy Hudson Photography

My top tip for other Brides Up North would be to not forget the reason you’re having a wedding day. It’s very easy to get swept up in the organisation and hype and lose sight of the real reason you’re having a wedding day. There will always be things that don’t go quite according to plan but as long as everyone is happy, that’s the main thing.

Andy Hudson Photography

Congratulations Sam & Rob!

Owl Always Love You! Berry Red & A Feathered Friend For A Real Winter Wedding At Swinton Park – Rachael & Neil

May 22nd, 2013 | Julia Braime

.

Richard Wynn Davies

I normally like to get keep the weddings I feature relatively seasonal.  You know, falling leaves in the Autumn, bright skies in Spring time and all that.  But honestly, Rachael and Neil’s gorgeous winter wedding with it’s deep berry reds (and a feathered friend – the wedding blog seems awash with them this week!) was too good to save until the darker nights roll in.  And who knows if we even have seasons anymore anyway!

.

If you are looking ahead to a Christmas celebration, get ready to get excited!  With images by Brides Up North Featured Supplier Richard Wynn Davies and featuring the work of some of my favourite Yorkshire suppliers, let’s get stuck in!

Rachael says:  Neil asked my to marry him on the August Bank holiday 2011, at Golden Acre Park in North Leeds, and we were married on 27th December 2012 at Swinton Park, Masham, North Yorkshire.  We both fell in love with the venue after it was recommended by a work colleague who’d been to a wedding there before.

We had a winter red theme but we also had an owl fly our rings down the aisle so to tie in with this we had the Harry Potter classical music and Harry Potter table names along with chocolate owl wedding favours.

Both Neil and I drove up to the venue to get ready in the morning, we got married at the venue so didn’t need to travel at all during the day which was perfect for our winter wedding!

.

I loved getting ready with my mum and bridesmaids, although we ended up a little rushed!

I chose a gorgeous dress from Amelia Elliott bridal shop on Horsforth Town Street, Leeds. The ladies running the shop, Vanessa & Caroline, had designed the dress and made the whole experience so enjoyable from start to finish.

My bridesmaids wore full length chiffon dresses by Impression in claret. We got the dresses from Confetti & Lace in Leeds.  Our groomsmen wore charcoal suits hired from Yorkshire Menswear with ivory and claret cravats.

David Fields was my hair dresser and did an excellent job! He was a genuinely lovely man and made the entire process of getting ready really enjoyable! He even chipped in and poured the champagne for us.

I had a bouquet of red roses with frosted berries and dark leaves by Sasha at Rose & Co Flowers, Yorkshire who provided all of our flowers and chairs covers and did an excellent job with the decorations!

.

My bridesmaids had ivory & red bouquets with roses and orchids amongst other flowers and frosted berries and the chair covers along the aisle were decorated with frosted pine cones.

We had an amazing chocolate wedding cake from Patisserie Viennoise covered in Belgian milk, white and dark chocolate.  The cake was chocolate from top to bottom!

.

We had a Ceilidh for our evening entertainment – Cobblers Wax. They provided great entertainment and got everybody up dancing.  We also had a magician at our drinks reception, Anthony Heaton, who our guests thought was excellent.

.

.

.

The entire day went exactly to plan thanks to the amazing staff at Swinton Park. If we had to choose one special moment we both loved letting off Chinese lanterns outside after the ceilidh.

.

.

.

After the wedding we went to Dubai for new year followed by a week in Sri Lanka touring the sites and a week relaxing in the Maldives.

.

.

.

.

My top tip for other Brides Up North would be to plan things well in advance to avoid last minute stress and don’t worry about anything on the day, just enjoy every minute of it!

Congratulations Rachael & Neil!

Black & White & Red All Over: A Delectably Dark City Wedding At Malmaison Manchester: Laura & Simon

May 13th, 2013 | Julia Braime

.

Andy Wardle Photography

.

.

It was their way or the highway for Laura and Simon’s simple yet gorgeously gothic Real Wedding in Manchester city centre, with beautiful results.  With images by Brides Up North Featured Supplier Andy Wardle Photography this black and white and red all over wedding (organised in just four weeks!) is a little monochrome masterpiece.

Laura says: Simon asked me to marry him on my birthday at a little pub in Rowley near Matlock which is special to us and we tied the knot on 30th of August 2012.  The ceremony was at Manchester Town Hall and our reception was at Malmaison Manchester.

We didn’t want to get married in a church as neither of us are religious but we did want a bit of gothic grandeur so the Town Hall was the perfect place. We also spend a lot of time in Manchester so it was nice to have our wedding venue as somewhere we pass on a regular basis. We chose Malmaison for the reception because we love the bold style of the decor. We also wanted somewhere we could go back to on our anniversary – oh! and they had to make good non-alcoholic cocktails which was essential as I was five months pregnant!

.

We wanted laid back and intimate, city centre chic with an edge which Andy has captured beautifully in his photos. Neither of us wanted a big production, so we kept it simple and did everything ourselves. We built everything around us as a couple – the venues, the music, the guest list, the decorations – if it didn’t mean something to us it wasn’t part of our wedding.

.

I bought my dress online from a bridal shop in Kent, I wanted a Grecian style dress and I fell in love with the simplicity of this one.  Simon wore a Ted Baker suit.  We didn’t have bridesmaids or groomsmen as we wanted to keep things informal. 

.

Andy Wardle Photography was our only supplier – it was important that we got a set of photographs that told the story of our day, with a style that we loved – Andy was the perfect choice.

.

We tried to do as much as possible ourselves because we wanted our wedding day to reflect us – we even dressed the rooms the night before the wedding ourselves.

.

.

Our special touch was to select and mix our own music – music is important to both of us so we spent a lot of time getting it just perfect.

.

We had three playlists – one for the ceremony, one for the meal and one for the party. We made the mixes from songs that meant something to us, it meant we had the perfect atmosphere and gave the guests something to laugh at when the more embarrassing selections got played.

.

We had a Daisy and Donald wedding cake, made by Simon’s brother in law. I didn’t see it until the day and I was so happy, he did such an amazing job.

The whole day was really special – it is really difficult to pick one highlight. We had some time to walk around Manchester’s Northern Quarter with our photographer to get some shots of just us – that was fun and we got some great photos.

We organised and had our wedding within four weeks of setting the date and got everything we wanted. We worked really hard and everything fell into place. The best thing about doing it this way was that there was no post wedding ‘come down’ as I think some people get, we were so happy to have pulled off our perfect day in such a short space of time!

Congratulations Laura & Simon!

Patent Red: A Real Wedding In The North West – Lucy & Nick

Well, when I saw today’s bride Lucy’s choice of shoes (patent red Jimmy Choo Mary Janes people!) I just knew that the rest of her wedding to Nick at Combermere Abbey in Cheshire was bound to be very fabulous indeed. 

.

With images by Yana Photography, I wasn’t disappointed!  This is a very beautiful way to finish off the week.

.

Lucy says:  We got engaged in Cornwall during a weekend away. Nick proposed on top of a cliff overlooking the sea one evening at sunset. We then went back to the cottage where we were staying and celebrated with champagne he had waiting.

.

.

.

We were married on 8th September 2012 at Combermere Abbey, Cheshire.  Combermere has beautiful walled gardens and a stunning glasshouse for the ceremony which opens out on to a fruit maze. The reception was held in a lovely permanent marquee they have in another part of the walled gardens. Nowhere else we looked around compared to Combermere. The gardens are fabulous and we were lucky as the weather was perfect on the day which added to the relaxed atmosphere.

We didn’t have a theme. I like simplicity so nothing too fussy or wedding(y)!  We chose a colour scheme of black and white with a splash of red for colour – again to keep things classic and clean.

I wore a Maggie Sottero gown from a boutique in Chester. I picked it as it was different to anything else I had seen before and the fit was perfect.  My shoes were from Jimmy Choo. I originally went in to buy from their bridal collection but after seeing these striking red shoes I knew they were the ones for me. I also wore them a lot when we went for dinner on our honeymoon.

.

A bouquet of red roses which were so beautiful I didn’t want to put them down.

.

My bridesmaids wore dresses from Coast. I don’t like traditional bridesmaids dresses so I picked dresses that I thought were smart but also really suited the girls.

We had a harpist for the ceremony and drinks reception and a DJ for the evening. We also hired a fun casino for the evening which went down really well with the guests. Everybody had fun on the black jack and roulette tables and champagne spot prizes were handed out to the winners.

Our cake was a three tier chocolate, fruit and sponge from Marks and Spencer. My grandparents bought our cake for us as a wedding gift.

Every single minute was wonderful but the speeches and seeing our guests having fun on the casino was great.

.

After the wedding we spent a week on Barbados soaking up the sun followed by a week in Cornwall where Nick had proposed.

.

.

My top tip for other Brides Up North would be to put together a detailed running order for the day a few months prior to the wedding so that you can identify where there might be any lulls and you can fill these gaps with entertainment – this will also ensure your day flows really well. For example to avoid a lull after dinner our casino kicked started the evening for guests and got everyone out of their seats and talking.

.

Congratulations Lucy and Nick!

Wednesday Wedding Inspiration: Spring Berry

April 3rd, 2013 | Julia Braime

Spring Berry Wedding Inspiration

.

1. Berry Lips Image 2. ‘Firefly’ Gown by Stephanie Allin 3. Table Decor 4. Spring Bouquet 5. Suede Heels 6. Bridesmaids Shoes Image 7. Sugar Rose Lace Cake 8. Cranberry Gown 9. Birdcage Veil 10. Groom’s Attire

.

Doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun?! Our regular guest blogger Katy of What Katy Did Next is back, and this time she’s seeing red…

.
Katy says: This week I was given a challenge by reader Kristin, of creating a red wedding inspiration board that converted the usual Wintery rouge to a shade more appropriate to Spring. I’m not the biggest fan of red used in weddings – there are some really bad examples of it yet some are really fab! I decided to channel a Springtime boho goddess vibe using just hints of it in the colour scheme.

.
I adore the Stephanie Allin gown – with it’s perfect ditsy floral lace. The decorative style of the dress leaves little need for accessories. Let the dress do all the talking by keeping hair accessories simple with a birdcage veil to allow all angles of the dress to be on show – or for a more traditional look team with a single layer cathedral length veil pinned to a low chignon. For daring brides add a slick of berry to your lips with a natural look eye-shadow.

.
Take advantage of the newly emerging wildflowers and add pops of red roses, tulips or anemones to your floral displays in centrepieces as well as your bouquets. I really love the unusualness of the pomegranates in the table decor. If your wedding is late Spring/Summer you could even add wild berries or strawberries to the decor too. Having an outdoor wedding? Why not add lace and velvet ribbons with hints of red amongst ivory and white to the trees as an alternative to bunting?

.
Hopefully this has inspired a few of you – I’m looking forward to future red challenges! Don’t forget to get in touch with myself of Julia with your requests for future wedding inspiration boards.

.

.

Remember: the plan is to share a new inspiration board in this time slot every other week, either compiled by myself, regular guest blogger Katy or YOU: get in touch with your own ideas and inspiration boards! We’ll be discussing our inspirations behind the images too so it’s simply going to be a whole load of lovely.

.

If you are a little less arty but in need of inspiration and still want to play along, we will also be taking requests for colour schemes and themes and making bespoke boards for my readers. Please contact me to suggest a theme or colour scheme.
