Ladies, lovelies, and those beyond the binary, do we have SUCH a treat for you today. Rachael and Marc’s wedding last August was a gorgeous sunny day full of teary happy moments, laid back bohemian vibes and some serious style. And a surprise gospel choir! A recipe for success if ever I’ve heard one…
“We live in an 18th century country farmhouse in a small village outside of Leeds, and as I am a boho girl at heart we knew that our venue would have to be something stunning but with a relaxed feel to it. My mum recommended East Riddlesden Hall to us, and when we went to view it we were blown away. It had such a lovely feel, but was also the perfect blank canvas. We knew then and there that it was perfect for what we wanted – I think we called the next day to book it!”
Instead of looking at the grey sogginess outside, grab yourself a drink and inject some colour back into your life with this gorgeous yurt wedding we’ve been lucky enough to blog. Dan and Daisy got married on a beautiful Saturday last August where the sun was a-shining, the drinks were a-flowing and the party atmosphere was out in full force. And even better, the styling was on top form. Sounds like our kind of day!
Working in the wedding industry, as today’s bride does, you get to see so many cool venues. But this one, a distillery, was a hidden gem. Photographer Chantal of The Gibsons told me, “Kristin is the creative behind Struve Photography, and after seeing wedding after wedding she realised that she just wanted to make the day how they would want their day to go. So they got ready together and did a first look then on our way to Glengoyne Distillery we stopped off at locations which had meaning to them both. Kristin was pregnant with their son at the time so this was very convenient for her as well.
“The wedding was small and heartfelt filled with their favourite people. The guests got a whiskey tour while we snapped some more photos of the two of them around the distillery.
“Tables had an outdoorsy forest theme also involving their two beloved cats Pepper and Fidel. There was no dancing in the evening. Just the enjoyment of conversing at the table with each other which was so lovely!”
At the height of summer last year, Hannah married Cal in one of the coolest and most colourful weddings I have ever seen! Mashing up various elements, all of which were truly them, we are treated to some seriously fun wedding styling!!
And this wedding also gave me one of the sweetest ever answers to my question, ‘is there anything you would change about the day?’ Cal said, “the only thing I’d change is the space-time continuum in order to live that day over and over.”
Lauren and Paul had a quiet and intimate wedding at Hackney Town Hall with just their parents and siblings a few family and friends, followed by a trip to one of their favourite local pubs, the Commercial Tavern, to meet up with a few friends and then a family dinner at The Hawksmoor in Spitalfields. Lauren says,
“We knew we wanted to celebrate in a bigger way at some point, so hosted a party for family and friends on our first wedding anniversary. We basically stretched the wedding celebrations out as long as we could!”
Michelle and Pete had a colourful warehouse wedding where the key was to simply have a relaxed and informal day, to be more of a party than a ‘traditional’ wedding.
