This wedding is a very glam occasion indeed with an evening wear dress code and classic black, white and silver colour scheme.

We love the men’s choice of smart suits with braces and dicky bows as well as the bridesmaids’ elegant floor-length lace dresses. Stealing the show bride Holly completes the well-dressed wedding party in her gorgeous princess style gown with simple detailing.

Puling the whole classy affair together there are stunning arrangements and elegant décor by Red Floral Architecture and sparkling stationery by Love Invited.

holly says: We got engaged on 7th September 2011. Will had organised a meal at Piccalino’s in Manchester, which I thought was just a treat for me finishing a course I’d been doing. My mum and step-dad were there so everything seemed pretty much ordinary (barring the fact looking back Will had his best shirt on). Once we had sat at our table a beautiful bunch of red roses were given to me by the waiter and next thing Will was down on one knee in the middle of the restaurant showing me my gorgeous engagement ring. The whole restaurant, even the chefs were cheering. It was a very memorable moment.

We set our wedding date for 6th December 2014. I had always wanted a winter wedding, as I knew living in Manchester we could never depend on the weather being nice. I didn’t want it to be any closer to Christmas so the first weekend in December it was (which happened to be my 27th Birthday).

Our chosen venue was Colshaw Hall at Over Peover, Cheshire. We just fell in love with this venue the minute we stepped foot inside. There are no other venues like it in the area!

We didn’t really have a style/theme but I knew I wanted all my guests in evening wear so there had to be quite a chic and glamorous feel to the day. In terms of colour I like everything quite white and minimal so all the flowers were white and we had stunning Perspex accessories and lots of candles.

Overall the colour scheme was black, white and silver sparkle which I chose because I wanted everything to look clean and simple.

When it came to my dress, I chose a design that was the complete opposite to what I first thought I would chose. My dress was quite ‘princessy’ but not too over the top with an ivory satin, strapless bodice and quite a full skirt. Around the waist it had delicate silver detail. I found my dress in Maria Modes in Macclesfield. The ladies in there were so welcoming and helpful!

Will wore a suit from Whitfield & Ward in Wilmslow. He went for a black evening suit with a dickey bow and braces. Will didn’t want anything too traditional. The groomsmen also wore suits from Whitfield & Ward – the same as Will’s but without a waistcoat.

My six bridesmaids meanwhile wore long black lace dresses. They had a low V shaped dip at the back with a satin belt. I got them from Adeava in Macclesfield.

We were lucky enough to not to have to hire transport on the day, as Will’s dad owns a Classic Car Restoration Company in Denton called Ratcliffe Accident Repair Centre.  So we both had beautiful Bentleys to use on the day.

Martin Hambleton Photography took our photographs. I chose Martin to be our photographer after seeing what a stunning job he did for a close friend of mine. Martin really helped with any questions or worries I had leading up to our wedding, he was always on the end of an email or phone. Will and I felt so at ease on our big day and Martin captured such beautiful photographs. We would recommend him to everyone.

We also hired a videographer called Unforgettable Memories who was recommend by Martin. We wanted to have a video of our day so that we wouldn’t miss out on the moments we wouldn’t be able to be a part of. Craig was great from Unforgettable Memories and we are so happy with the final video.

I carried a stunning bouquet of calla lilies that were created by Matt at Red Floral Architecture. Red Floral also provided beautiful arrangements of white roses, Perspex candelabras and lots of candles to decorate. I made our super sparkly silver table numbers.

Our wedding stationery was provided by Love Invited Ltd. Amanda there created the most beautiful stationery. I knew what I wanted so getting that printed just how I imagined was great.

I decided to not give favours to the adult guests. I wanted the evening to be fun so put silly moustaches, lips and hats on a stick props for each guest. I did give the children a little present each though to keep them entertained during the meal.

We didn’t want a traditional cake so went for a sweetie cake instead. I did want it to look like a wedding cake but then be able to be separated in the evening for everyone to enjoy. It was made by Gemma Kelly of Little Gem’s Sweetie Cakes.

Barrett’s Caterers provided the catering on the day and we chose a menu made up of our favourite foods.

As a special touch, Will and my family surprised me with a birthday cake at the beginning of the speeches. Everyone sang Happy Birthday, I have no idea how we will top my birthday celebrations to come!

A Glamorous Wedding at Colshaw Hall (c) Martin Hambleton Photography (89)

For an extra but of fun in the evening we hired a photo booth from Hipswing Entertainments, which turned out to be a great idea. The photographs are great and Hipswing provided a great service.

I would recommend every company that was involved in making our day run so smoothly, including our venue. Georgina and the team that run it are all great and couldn’t have done more to make our day special. I loved every minute of it!

For our honeymoon we went to Mexico and stayed in a beautiful hotel called Excellence Playa Mujeres, somewhere we had never been before and it was just paradise. We had ten days to just relax together. We had dinner on the beach, danced all night at CoCo Bongos and found a new favourite cocktail – Banana Mamas.

A Glamorous Wedding at Colshaw Hall (c) Martin Hambleton Photography (95)

My top tips to other Brides Up North would be to enjoy every moment of planning and try not to get into arguments about anything as everything always works out in the end. On the big day take everything in as much as you can and to sneak a few moments on your own with your partner. Finally, don’t wear your heels all day, it’s just not worth the pain the next day!

Real Wedding Recap Winter 2013: Low Key Lovely. Pronovias For A Real Wedding In Manchester –Nichola & Neil

December 27th, 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.

What Nichola and Neil’s Real Wedding lacks in fiddly detail, it makes up for class.  I love their low key yet expertly styled celebration in the North’s capital of cool.  This is how it’s done, people.

Nichola says:  We got engaged in August 2010 in Sicily. We had taken a trip to Mount Etna to watch the sunset. We watched the sunset together and then Neil asked me to marry him producing the most gorgeous pearl and diamond ring

We had a Catholic ceremony at St.Mary’s Church, Levensulme (our local church) followed by a reception at the Radisson Edwardian in Manchester City Centre on 6th April 2013.

Having both grown up in Manchester we wanted a wedding that really reflected our love of the city. Neil is an architect so the venue was really important to us. We had quite a large wedding as we are both from big Irish families and have big groups of friends we have grown up with so finding a venue we loved that was big enough was a struggle.

.

When we walked into the Radisson at a wedding fair we knew it was perfect. It was the right size and it had character to it that other venues just didn’t have.  I work in customer service and being a 5 star hotel knew that we would get first class service which was the top of my priority list.

.

.

We had two key themes for the day, pearls and lace from a decoration point of view but also Manchester and Music.

.

The Radisson was once a music venue (The Lesser Free Trade Hall) and Neil loves music so we created invitations that looked like gig tickets, our table gift was a CD of music from artists that had played at the Free Trade Hall and the table names were all artist that had played at the venue.

.

I wanted to keep the decorations as low key as possible as I really wanted to do these myself. I collected glass jars for months with the help of family and friends and we filled them with pearls and candles and covered them in lace. I bought hessian to make runners for the table and for around some of the jars too. We really wanted everything to feel personal and ‘us’ so the invites, table plans, place names and order of service were all designed and created by us.

.

We kept everything quite neutral. My dress was ivory and the bridesmaids’ dresses matched too. The stationary was all created using brown card to match the hemp.

.

.

 Adam Riley Photography

.

.

.

I choose a Pronovias dress from the Bridal Path in Althrincham. I must have gone to nearly 10 shops and always fell in love with a dress in each one but never committed to buying them.

.

When I tried this dress on I knew it was the one, the lace was amazing and I really wanted lace in the dress. I loved the detail on the straps and waistline and adored the way the skirt fell.

.

The bridesmaids wore gorgeous lace dresses in the same colour as mine so they were very classic and they looked amazing next to my dress. I bought the dresses from Marks and Spencer as we didn’t want to spend huge amounts of money on ‘typical’ bridesmaids dresses that had no character.

.

The men’s suits were from Groom in Wilmslow. We didn’t want a traditional tails/morning suit as when we looked at these the fabric was stiff and stuffy. We had wanted Navy all along as Neil has a lovely navy suit at home and the colour looks great on him. We had been to a lot of places looking at suits but the minute we walked in groom we saw the perfect suit. The material was lovely, clearly great quality, and the accessories were perfect for the colour scheme.

.

We used Knutsford Bloom for the flowers. I wanted to bring in some spring colours in the flowers as everything else was so neutral and Bridget was brilliant helping us pick and the flowers were amazing on the day.

.

I carried a medium hand tied bouquet with gorgeous yellows, pinks and blue to bring some colour to the day and tie in the suits.  The bridesmaids carried smaller versions of my bouquet.

The special touches for us were the personal side of things, making all the stationery and decorations. Picking all the church readings, prayers and hymns ourselves meant we picked things that really meant something to us as a couple and not just standard wedding words

.

.

 Adam Riley Photography

.

.

My favourite part of the day was getting to say I do and finally marry Neil (after nearly 10 years together) with all our friends and family there to watch.

We didn’t want to spend too much money on transport for ourselves on the day so we only booked one vintage cream car that could take the wedding party ahead of my Dad and Me. Then after the ceremony Neil and I took the car while the guests travelled in two vintage double decker buses to the hotel. Our photographer jumped on the buses to take some pictures of all the guests and really captured the atmosphere of the day.

Our photographer was Adam Riley a reportage style photographer. We both agreed we didn’t want anything too posed on the day (apart from the family shots for the mums!) and photography was really important to us. Adam was an amazing choice and we were so happy with what he created for us. He captured the day in a way we could not have imagined and everyone has said how unique and fantastic the pictures are. The hard part now comes in picking which ones to put in the album!

.

We wanted some time for just me and Neil to walk around some of the important places in Manchester that held a place in our hearts to have some pictures captured, Adam was so on board with this idea and had met Neil in the week before the wedding to walk around to the different spots and work out a plan for the day.

.

We had decided not to have a video on the day due to budget but Neil’s mum planned a surprise for us and got the details of a videographer, Craig at Unforgettable Memories Films. She told Neil about the surprise and he met with Craig ahead of the wedding to talk everything through. When Craig turned up at the house the morning of the wedding it was such a shock and I couldn’t have been happier.

For the cake we used Richard’s Cakes. My father, sister and myself all have a gluten free diet so we needed someone who could cater to this. We had decided to have individual cakes as dessert also so wanted something that looked like a dessert. The cakes were beautiful and so tasty.

Having a big Irish crowd and also lots of friends who love to party at the wedding meant that the entertainment was really important to us. We choose a local DJ, Andy Murphy, and a local Irish band, The Last Drop.

.

We know Andy well and he was fantastic, he came round to the house in the run up to the wedding to talk through how things would run on the night. Andy really knows how to pick songs to keep the crowd happy. We were struggling with a first dance choice as Neil is so into his music but not big on dancing! We settled on The Stone Roses – This Is The One. It went down a storm.

.

The band were great and worked brilliantly with Andy to make sure everything ran smoothly and the dance floor was always busy.

.

.

We went to America for three weeks on our honeymoon. We really wanted the trip of a lifetime. We started in Vegas and travelled to the west coast from Yosemite down to San Diego stopping at lots of places on the way.  It was the most amazing three weeks we could have had.

.

.

Adam Riley Photography

.

.

My top tips for other Brides Up North would be to make the day personal to you. It will help you have the day you want and its great when everyone you love has a good time because of what you plan.

.

Make sure you take some time for the two of you, its hard but you will love having sometime taking it all in. We had that when we went of for pictures and I am so glad we did as the day flew by so quick.

Congratulations Nichola & Neil!
