We’re celebrating Sunday on Brides Up North today with this gorgeous rainbow wedding sent to me by real bride Lina and Brides Up North Featured Supplier Jamie Penfold Photography.  It’s at Brides Up North dream venue Woodhill Hall in Northumberland, and Lina and husband Andrew certainly made the most of this stunning boutique venue’s colourful and quirky charm.

.

Be inspired!

Lina says:  Andrew asked me to marry him at  The Alnwick Garden in July 2011, and we were married on 25th May 2013 at Woodhill Hall, Otterburn, Northumberland.

We chose Woodhill Hall because it was so beautiful. The fact we could have a lot of people staying at the venue for the Saturday was great and Corinne who owns the venue is amazing. We love everything about it!

We wanted a vintage inspired, very relaxed day.  The main colour at first was yellow but then we started adding more and more colour. It got a little out of control!

At first for my wedding dress I wanted something very plain… but then when I met the Y.A.P Bridal team they found me something perfect. It was a fitted vintage style lace wedding dress with little sparkles.

My pretty bridal jewellery was by Sareli, another local North East company (and a Brides Up North Featured Supplier).

We always knew what we wanted suits-wise (ours were from Slaters) but we couldn’t find any ties we liked. We came across a new company; Pangaea, who made us some custom ties which had stripes on the back: ‘business up front…party at the back’.

We stayed at the venue over the weekend from the Friday so we didn’t need transportation.

The ceremony was both our favourite part of the wedding. It was very informal and everyone really enjoyed it.

Our wedding cake had Lemon sponge on the bottom, victoria sponge in the middle and cookies and crème on the top. Yum!  It was made for us by Isabelle & Richard at The Designer Cake Company.

We made a donation to a charity called ‘Josies Dragonfly’ The aim of Josie’s Dragonfly Trust is to brighten the lives of children & young people living with cancer. We had dragonfly pin badges for everyone (supplied by the charity) with lollypops and vintage disposable cameras.

We had birds of prey displays from Falconry Days and a photo booth from Snaparazzi on the night. We also had two bands; one for the daytime and one for the night which both were amazing – they were the Zoe Gilby Trio and The Dean Solomon Band

After the wedding we honeymooned in New York.

My top tip for other Brides Up North would be that it’s one day – so no matter what goes wrong, just shrug it off and enjoy yourselves

    I LOVE the bright colours and the layout of the ceremony room. The tree trunk plinths look fab with the jam jars and candles and really make the room for me. Lovely.
