Today’s real wedding between Hazel and Marc gives us a real flavour of their personalities; it’s lovely when a wedding is a true expression of the couple and, even though we’ve never met them, we feel like we know a little bit about these lovely newlyweds just from the details they added to their big day.
Hazel and Marc had a lot of input from their nearest and dearest while planning their wedding too, with the bride’s mother growing all the fresh flowers herself in her garden for a really personal – not to mention seasonal – feel. They even had an original poem penned by a close friend read out during the ceremony and friends singing and playing the guitar to add a special touch.
The décor and details add to the cosy, rustic setting; from the dried flowers in the bouquets and button holes and calligraphy adorned leaf place settings, to the swags of fairy lights and trawling greenery draped along the venue’s exposed brick walls and beams.
Other star elements for us include Hazel’s pretty boho style dress and flower crown as well as the flashes of mustard yellow throughout the flowers, groomsmen’s ties and on the rather spectacular cake, which is beautifully bedecked with fresh fruit and flowers – naked but with plenty of adornments to preserve its modesty!

hazel says: We got engaged in Wensleydale on a snowy winter weekend away. Marc took me by surprise when he got down on one knee at a waterfall!
We got married on Sunday 12th August 2018. We wanted to go for a summer date and needed to set the date before my twin sister moves to New Zealand in autumn. It is also the peak of the Perseids shooting star shower.
Our chosen venue was Cubley Hall in Penistone, South Yorkshire. We were hoping for an outdoor ceremony at the band stand, but the English weather let us down in the end! Nevertheless, the barn has really nice cosy lighting with fairy lights and candles, and the walls have plenty of decorations, so you really don’t need to add much extra yourself. We would definitely recommend the venue to other brides and grooms as they did a great job of our big day.
Theme-wise, we loosely went for a natural summer meadow/boho style, both being outdoorsy people.
In terms of colour, we had no set scheme. My mum grew the flowers in her garden, so it was basically all the colours of August flowers.
The bridesmaids wore multi-way silver dresses from Oasis.
