This afternoon we join Kerry and Lee in the North East for their glamorous big day with personalised fun touches.  With images by Grange Photography and a venue to die for (my own choice for my own wedding day in actual fact, so I may be a little biased) this wedding was always going to be a favourite.  And then I clocked Kerry’s amazing dress…

Kerry says:  We got engaged at Seaham Hall Spa on 19th August 2010, and were married on 30th June 2012 at St Cuthberts Church, Shadforth, County Durham then Hardwick Hall Hotel, Sedgefield for our reception.

We chose the venue because of it’s amazing grounds for photo opportunities and because it’s a beautiful hotel that has a good reputation.  We opted for a marquee wedding with a colour scheme of sage green and white to bring the outside in.

I chose a Maggie Sottero white dress from Poppy Bridal at Darlington. This was every girl’s dream princess dress with layers of tulle and real Swarovski crystal.  I added a sparkly headpiece by Jenny Packham.  I wore my Nana’s necklace that my sister also wore for her wedding day and placed a photo of her by the wedding cake so she could be thought of on our special day.

I carried a bouquet of white roses by The Flowershop at Spennymoor. 

.

My bridesmaids wore sage green full length dresses from Susan’s Bridal at Sunderland and the groomsmen the same as the groom. Lee wore a grey suit with matching waistcoat.  The suits were from Troughear Suit Hire in Durham. Everyone looked amazing!

My husband surprised me with a retro VW camper van form Go Retro Vehicle Hire to take us to the wedding and venue. They give you a pretend number plate with your new married name on it.

In the afternoon, Lickety Split ice cream parlour from Seaham came with their vintage ice cream trike to give all the guests ice creams of their choice.

After the wedding we honeymooned in Jamaica.

We had a two year engagement as this allowed us to save enough money and plan things that we wanted. My top tip for other Brides Up North would be to take time on your day to stand back and watch everyone for a few minutes. Enjoy every minute as it goes so quick!
