My bad. Forgive my shameless plug, and let’s head back to the sparkle and song of Kimberley and Andrew’s classic yet contemporary wedding, with contributions from lots of our favourite North East suppliers, and images by Grange Photography.

Kimberley says:  We got engaged on 2nd January 2011.  We went for a walk around Greatham Church and he got down on one knee and asked to meet him back there on our wedding day. I was totally surprised really didn’t expect it… cue lots of happy tears!

We were married on 25th August 2012 at Greatham Church (of course!) with the reception at Hardwick Hall Hotel, where we fell in love with the beautiful grounds and chandeliers and the staff were so helpful.

.

We chose a colour scheme of sage green & ivory.

I chose a Ronald Joyce dress from Christabel & Keats and accessories by Jenny Packham

.

My bridesmaids wore floor length strapless chiffon dresses from Christabel & Keats and the groomsmen wore traditional tailored grey suits from Bakers in Middlesborough.

We travelled in style – in my friend’s dad beautiful Bentley and I also chose a VW camper van for my bridesmaids, which they loved.

I copied Kate Middleton’s bouquet, as I loved it!  It had lily of the valley, gypsophila, small roses and a few crystals.

I loved every second of the day and wish that we could do it all again.  It really was the best day of our lives.

We love music, so had a table plan based on our favourite bands.  In the evening we chose to have a live  band called The Lizards, as well as a retro photo booth from Snaparazzi Photo Booths.

We chose a vanilla sponge, fruit and chocolate praline cake with ivory fondant from Celebration Cakes.  We added a sage green ribbon and a gorgeous brooch.  Beautiful and delicious!

After the wedding we went to Thailand. Bangkok, Koh Samui & Phuket. We seriously didn’t want to come home – it’s such a beautiful country!

My top tip for other Brides Up North would be to make sure your organised and well prepared so you can enjoy every moment. Don’t stress about the small things it all comes together on the day.
