There can be no finer start to your week than this stunning North West wedding. Taking place at The Out Barn near Clitheroe, Rebecca and Scott’s big day had an elegant vintage theme with little nods to the rustic setting in the form of cute homemade décor.

There are so many beautiful elements to this wedding but we can’t stop looking at bride and groom’s attire, with both looking like they’ve stepped right out of the pages of a fashion magazine.

rebecca says: We got engaged at our little flat in Leeds in May 2015, after a really tough week at work. Scott had spoken to me during the day at work to say that because I’d had a stressful week that he would be cooking me a three course meal to cheer me up as I was totally fed up! When I arrived home, there were photos from the five years we had been together hung on string all over the kitchen and living room which made me cry! After the dinner he then got down on one knee, up until that point I had no idea at all, then I didn’t say yes for about five minutes because I was crying so much! When I called my mum and dad to tell them they said they’d been avoiding speaking to me all week as Scott had been over earlier in the week to ask my dad.

We set the date for 2nd July 2016. After getting engaged we were in no great hurry and so looked online at a couple of venues to get ideas. Before Christmas we went to an open day at The Out Barn in Clough Bottom. My parents live in Chorley so we decided to go for the week and visit the venue with my mum. We went to the wedding fayre, had a look around and were about to leave, when my mum said she wanted to ask about dates. They were booked until September 2016 except for one date in July, so we went for it and had a very busy 14 weeks ahead of us!

Upon visiting we just fell in love with The Out Barn and its surroundings. We loved the character of the building too and the views are amazing!

Our theme for the wedding was rustic/vintage. We made all the decorations ourselves and we wanted everything to be a bit mismatched, as it suited how we are as a couple. We didn’t have a specific colour scheme to start with, it was only after we had chosen the pastel coloured material for the bunting that a specific palette emerged.

The Lucky Ones! A Real Wedding In Yorkshire – Catherine & Rob

Yorkshire Wedding by Shoot Lifestyle

Brides Up North reader Catherine sent me her beautiful Real Wedding in Sheffield by Shoot Lifestyle to share on the blog with you today.  Catherine played a winner by keeping her styling pretty and fresh and her guests thoroughly entertained.

Never fails.

Catherine says:  Rob proposed on the wheel outside Selfridges in Manchester on the 18th December 2010. It wasn’t planned to stop at the top, but it did and Rob pulled the ring out and said “How about it then…” I laughed and then said yes! I can’t remember a thing about the 4 times round or the view we had.

We were married on 2nd June 2012 at St Mary’s Church, Rotherham followed by a reception at Whirlowbrook Hall in Sheffield.  We fell in love with Whirlowbrook the first time we drove up the long winding driveway. The building itself is set against such a gorgeous backdrop, and is very secluded and private. We also wanted to be the only couple getting married there on that day, and Whirlowbrook was exclusively ours. We also loved that fact that they were flexible with what we wanted to do on the day.

We opted for a colour scheme of dusky pink and ivory. I fell in love with a dusky pink rose at a wedding fair quite early on in the planning process and used that as inspiration.

Dress-wise, I had an idea that I want something classic and quite simple, but finding that was quite difficult, especially when the bridal shops I visited didn’t stock dresses many dresses above a size 10! By chance I found Clare, from The Bridal House in Sheffield, and when I explained what I wanted, she said they offered a bespoke service and I could be involved in designing the dress. Clare was brilliant and helped ease the worries that I am sure most brides have, and I had a dress that no other bride would ever wear!

Clare at The Bridal House also made the dress for my adult bridesmaid. The two little bridesmaids wore dresses from John Lewis. The groomsmen wore outfits from Austin Reed.

All the flowers were either ivory or dusky pink roses.  A family member did all the flowers on the day, and all of the arrangements were either larger or smaller versions of my bouquet.

Chris Hallam, a family friend, who is a jeweller designed and made our wedding rings. I wanted a wedding ring that would ‘fit’ around my engagement ring, and did this perfectly.

I cannot thank or praise Jo and Simon from Shoot Lifestyle enough, not only for the beautiful photographs that we have, but for their friendship, support and kindness. They were fantastic on the day, with all the guests, not just us!

My uncle was fantastic and arranged all the music for the wedding and DJ’d throughout the night with the help of other family members.  We also had two casino tables, where people could play for fun. We thought it would be a bit of fun for the boys, but it seems everyone enjoyed having a go!

The casino fun continued after the wedding as we honeymooned in Las Vegas and Barbados. We enjoyed the craziness of Vegas and the opportunity to chill out on the beach in Barbados.

It may sound clichéd, but I loved every minute of day. I had fun getting ready with some very special people, I grinned all the way down the aisle and throughout the service, and from then on, we just had fun partying. We had some very special people who were so genuinely happy for us that it was hard not to love every minute.

.

Maybe if I did have to be specific, then I would have to say the rendition of “You can call me Al’ in honour of my Dad, which was played twice and got the dance floor rocking!

My top tip for other Brides Up North would be to enjoy every minute of marrying your best friend surrounded by the people that love you the most.

Castles in the Clouds, A Real Wedding – Beckie & Gary

February 3rd, 2011 | Julia Braime

.

Featured Supplier and absolutely amazing luxury wedding photographer Ryan Browne Weddings sent me this fabulous Cheshire Real Wedding.   So atmospheric, and Ryan captures it all so wonderfully.  I think Brides Up North may have a talent on our hands…

Let’s hear it from the gorgeous bride: I met Gary just over 5 years ago and we were best friends from the start. It only took him 2 years to make his first move, but we have been inseparable  ever since! When he proposed on our very own boat in the middle of the ocean in Sardinia it was a dream come true and I knew I had found my soul mate.

Searching for the venue for our wedding we could not have been more excited and when we stumbled upon Peckforton Castle we fell in love with it. We could not have found a more special and magical venue that 
was just perfect for a winter wedding.

We got married on 20th December and my prayers for snow were answered.  Running more than a little late, but arriving in style in a white Rolls Royce I was a bag of nerves.

Lit by hundreds of candles and decorated with Christmas trees and the white rose and orchid candelabra  arrangements, my first view of the Great Hall took my breath away.

The ceremony was more than a little emotional for me, but gliding down the aisle in a huge princess style dress surrounded by our closest family and friends was a lifetime dream fulfilled and I enjoyed every 
second of it.

The day could not have been more perfect and I don’t think either of us stopped smiling or laughing the entire time. Our only complaint was that it was all over too quickly!

We have just received our photos and video trailer back and they have captured every moment and mood of the day magnificently. We couldn’t  have wished for more and they will provide a lifetime of special memories that we will never forget.
