I don’t know about you lovely lot, but as Christmas approaches I always think it’s a good excuse to up the snuggle factor, with lots of evenings spent by the fire, wrapped in blankets, watching some movies.
This week we’ll be sharing some special movies of our own, with five beautiful wedding reels (one each lunchtime) from Brides Up North Sponsor Silver Sixpence Films. These guys make beautiful, cinematic wedding films, and to have them shoot your own wedding is definitely worth adding to your Christmas list.
We’ll be adding even more video content to the blog as part of our editorial plans for next year, so as a prelude to that we hope you enjoy this little treat, take a few moments away from the madness of the season and get lost in each couple’s love story…
Tissues at the ready, first up, we join Andrea and Tom for their oh-so-pretty wedding at Priory Cottages, North Yorkshire.
andrea says: We got engaged on Christmas Eve 2012, we had had our second child that year so I was busy wrapping presents and just wanted to get into bed. As I opened the stairs door I was greeted with rose petals all over the stairs and candles on every step leading up to a huge bubble bath. Tom brought me a magazine with a ring box in to read whilst in the bath and got down on one knee. It was very romantic!
We wanted a relaxed feel with a touch of sparkle, lots of complimenting colours and some elegant touches for our wedding. We had a few colours for our scheme: peaches, pinks, corals and creams with a hint of gold glitter. The colours worked so well together and its something that we’d not seen before. We had lots of fun with DIY projects to get everything looking fab!
Our favourite part of the day was standing at the altar saying our vows, that for us is when we felt so calm yet its very real. Saying and hearing those words meant so much and marriage for us is a challenge that we will face together every day and we want to be the best we can be, supporting each other and savouring every moment. We are thoroughly looking forward to enjoying many years together.
