Country House! Jonathan James Couture For A Real Wedding At Nostell Priory – Hannah & Andy

November 11th, 2013 | Julia Braime

Created By Karl Photography

Today we join Brides Up North reader Hannah and her new husband Andy as they celebrate their English country wedding at one of my very favourite West Yorkshire wedding venues: Nostell Priory.

When styling her big day, Hannah kept things on the right side of girly by choosing garden green as a base colour.  The muted tone set off her pretty detailing to great effect and brought the outdoors in.

Now pass me a Pimms pronto, would you?!

Hannah says:  We went on a romantic weekend away in York in August 2010… Andy’s proposal was somewhat ‘underprepared’ (he didn’t have a ring!). He was initially going to propose in a restaurant on the Saturday evening and chickened out… so he decided to ask me on the Sunday morning! After a few days we found my dream engagement ring at Green and Benz in Sheffield and then Andy proposed again outside Sheffield City Hall!

We were married on 25th May 2013 at St Michael & Our Lady Church, with the reception at Nostell Priory.  Nostell Priory – run by Dine – is a stunning venue and location, after visiting once we knew it was the perfect venue for us… even though it was covered in scaffolding as it was going through a huge renovation when we booked back  in 2010!

Our theme was a pretty, English garden classic wedding with a relaxed and fun atmosphere.  We chose a colour scheme of blush pink and olive green, with the men in grey.

Our Magician Mark Waddington was a real highlight – and so were the band (The Barsteward Sons of Val Doonican – who feature the groom on guitar)!  Other lovely, personal touches were our Sweetie Buffet, the handmade signs, the wedding favours (wooden personalised hearts), the lottery tickets (for the draw on our wedding night), and the handmade wedding stationery courtesy of the Andy’s Mum!Created By Karl Photography

Steph Shaw sang and played for our guests during the drinks reception, and Andy’s band got the party started in the evening! We also had a fabulous photo booth courtesy of Created by Karl Photography (Stancliffe Studios).

My top tip for other Brides Up North would be that you only get one shot at it (hopefully!) so enjoy it, make sure it’s special for you both, that it is everything you both want and don’t get stressed… It’ll all work out fine!

p.s. don’t forget to spend time with your groom/ bride on the day!

Sweethearts. Berketex Bride For A Chic Real Wedding At The Mansion – Helen & David

October 18th, 2013 | Julia Braime

Dorchester Ledbetter Photography

And would you look at that, it’s Friday!  Three cheers and let’s celebrate by feasting our eyes on this beautiful Real Wedding at one of my very favourite wedding venues – The Mansion, Leeds.  I’ve just celebrated my third wedding anniversary, but if we had to do it all again, this venue would be seriously near the top of my list.  Helen and David’s celebration is just lovely – simple, chic and perfectly executed.  Of course, it helps that they’re blooming gorgeous too. 

Enjoy.

Helen says:  We got engaged in Summer 2011 in Las Vegas in an amazing restaurant overlooking the Bellagio fountains.  It was a complete surprise.

When we got married we had been together for 15 years as we got together at High School.  We finally said “I do” on Friday 16th August 2013 at The Mansion, Roundhay Park, Leeds. 

We chose the venue for the beautiful interiors, the stunning views of the park and because we both grew up nearby. From the first time we went inside The Mansion we knew we wanted to get married there.

My dress was from Berketex Bride in Leeds. It was an ivory strapless gown with lots of subtle detailing and a slight hint of pink in the lace. It needed no alterations and fit perfectly on the day.

I wore customised converse on my feet. They had my married name on and were covered in crystals.

My seven year old nieces wore ivory dresses from Debenhams with floral appliqué. Our one adult bridesmaid (my wing woman) wore a floral print dress from Phase Eight.  The groomsmen wore suits from Yorkshire Menswear and matching socks from Paul Smith.

We had Jill Ryder to sing and play guitar at the ceremony, drinks reception and wedding meal. She really made the day with her fantastic acoustic music. We saw her play at a friend’s wedding and knew we had to have her on our special day.

In the evening we had a brilliant band called Vibetown who got everyone dancing.

My bouquet was made from white hydrangeas with green leaves. Our bridesmaid Emma had a matching bouquet. We then had table flowers to match in glass cube vases. I have always loved white flowers and we wanted a clean, simple yet elegant look.

Our photographer was Martin from Dorchester Ledbetter Photography. We were so impressed with the quality of the photos and had a hard time choosing pictures for our album. Martin had such a good knowledge of our venue and suggested all the best places to get a good shot. He even stayed for the evening reception and we got some great pictures on the dance floor!

Our on the day stationery was by Pink Sherbet.  We chose butterfly place cards, which sat on the glasses and frosted candle holders lit the room in the evening.

We hired an ivory post box with our names on it for guests to place their cards in.

We chose a blush pink and ivory three tier cake with fondant flowers from Bored to Tiers in Morley.  The bottom and middle tiers were vanilla sponge and then middle tier was red velvet with white chocolate ganache.

I have lots of amazing memories from the day – walking into the room and seeing everyone’s smiling faces; walking up the aisle as a married couple then onto the terrace for some pink fizz; the speeches, which were brilliant and funny and hen everyone hit the dance floor to a Michael Jackson medley by our amazing band, Vibetown.

We just loved sharing such a perfect day with our family and friends. Everyone kept saying what a brilliant day it was.

Dorchester Ledbetter Photography

For our honeymoon we went to Koh Phangan and Koh Samui in Thailand then onto Singapore.

Dorchester Ledbetter Photography

My top tip for other Brides Up North would be to relax and enjoy the day. Get the main things booked as early as possible (venue, photographer, registrar) as these get booked up then take your time with all the other aspects. Book people that you trust and then you can relax and let them do their job on the day. We really trusted our venue team and photographer and felt able to enjoy every moment.

Don’t feel you have to have a colour theme, our approach was ‘if we like it then we will have it’. Enjoy the planning process, ours was exciting not stressful.

Dorchester Ledbetter Photography

Congratulations Helen & David!

Crystal chandeliers, a spiralling staircase and exquisite 18th century décor blend effortlessly to create Yorkshire’s most elegant setting fit for a truly memorably wedding celebration.  In 1776, famous architect John Carr channelled his expertise and creative flair to create this truly magical Georgian country house, with south-facing frontage and luxurious interior.

Wedding Blog Fashion Exclusive! Gorgeous Gowns By UK Wedding Dress Designer Eliza Wyke Couture

August 6th, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

Eliza Wyke Couture Wedding Gowns by Nicky Chadwick Photography

.

.

This afternoon’s post is a bit of a show off.  In the nicest possible way.

.

Today, I get to showcase the work of not one, but many fabulous Northern suppliers with this beautiful bridal fashion shoot sent to me by Featured Supplier Richard Wynn Davies and Nicky Chadwick Photography.  As well as showing off the skills of these two fine Yorkshire wedding photographers, we also get to lust after the gorgeous gowns of UK wedding dress designer Eliza Wyke Couture and the beautiful grounds of The Coniston Hotel in the Yorkshire Dales. 

.

Let the parade begin!  And take down my order for that sequinned gown.  In pink please.

Nicky says:  This shoot was conceived to showcase Eliza Wyke Couture’s amazing dress designs. After lots of discussions with Elizabeth from Eliza Wyke it was decided that with quite a few different dresses to shoot we needed a stunning venue to show them off as well as the help of a great team of people. The very talented Richard Wynn-Davies and his gorgeous better half Caroline agreed to come on board to help with the shooting and suggested we use the very lovely Coniston Hotel with it’s gorgeous hall and lake. Fortunately the hotel agreed and their team were very helpful throughout the day enabling us to get some fantastic shots.

Richard says: Caroline and I shot our first two Coniston weddings last month and really loved the place. From the quaint little village church to the impressive lake, beautiful old hall and fine formal gardens. Many of the wedding drinks receptions are held in the hall and the family that own it are very hands on. Mrs Bannister helps serve the drinks and is so lovely.  We decided it was the perfect location for an inspiration shoot to support the venue with imagery and showcase some of Elizabeth’s dresses and we decided to combine the classic, refined country look with a fashion twist.

The Coniston Hotel say: The Coniston Hotel is a wedding venue unlike any other, a venue where
friendly, personal service comes naturally. Nestling in 1400 acres of stunning Yorkshire Dales scenery, the estate is one of the most romantic settings imaginable; a perfect place for a perfect wedding. Yet the location is only part of the story. As we only ever hold one wedding or civil partnership per day, you’re guaranteed to be the focus of our attention, with delicious food, spectacular surroundings and a true Yorkshire welcome waiting for every one of your guests.

It’s Beautiful Up North! A Styled Wedding Inspiration Shoot

November 24th, 2011 | Julia Braime

.

Brides Up North UK Wedding Blog: James Melia

.

.

Erm.  Wow!  As a I see a lot of pretty things, trust me, but I was completely blown away by this stunning wedding inspiration shoot sent to me by James Melia.  The shoot is a collaboration between some of my favourite bridal suppliers and takes place in good old Yorkshire.

.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: it’s beautiful Up North. Northern Brides: think local!

.

.

Brides Up North UK Wedding Blog: James Melia

.

.

Natalie from I Am Nat explains: A group of Yorkshire-based suppliers came together to produce this stunning inspiration shoot, which took place at Northorpe Hall, a converted barn in Yorkshire – home to a charity who primarily work with youngsters who have learning difficulties. The venue touched our hearts; not only because of it’s beauty, but because of it’s ethos: when it is booked for an event, the money made goes straight back into the charity.

Super Sunday!

October 2nd, 2011 | Julia Braime

.

It’s been another crazy weekend here at HQ.  As well as lots of blogging, freelance deadlines and dates with my television set (I schedule my Barlow time like a not to be missed meeting now!) I’ve been exhibiting as a guest of The UK Wedding Shows at Newcastle Racecourse.  I met so many lovely new brides and grooms who just loved the concept of what I am trying to do here on my little wedding blog, and also some fabulous die hard readers.  Girls, I salute you!  If you are visiting for the first time, I’m just about to catch up on what you have missed this week, but first of all, let me tell you about a special soiree coming up later this week.

.

This Thursday evening, I’ll have my lippy on once again and will be ready to meet the lovely ladies of Yorkshire as a guest of Leafy Couture at the Harewood House Wedding Showcase.  I’ll be on hand with loads of insider info, tips and ideas as this amazing venue opens its doors for the evening.  We are also celebrating Leafy Couture’s fifth birthday, so there is sure to be some bubbly involved! 

.

Email brooke.a@harewood.org to receive your exclusive invitation.

Meet Me At The Met? A Styled Shoot: Damian Hall Photography

September 14th, 2011 | Julia Braime

.

Fabulous photographer and wedding blog Featured Supplier Damian Hall Photography invited me along recently to a bridal inspiration shoot being held at The Met Hotel in Leeds.  Well, true to my word, I popped along to see what the team of talented wedding industry professionals that Damian had drawn together were getting up to.  And boy, had they been busy showcasing three different styles at one stunning venue.  See for yourselves, and be inspired!
