Kate & Kit travelled all the way from Manchester to Northumberland to get married at the amazing Le Petit Chateau. With music being such a big part of this couple's lives they were sure to squeeze it in at every opportunity from Aretha Franklin to Fleetwood Mac all making the day that extra bit personal. Such a classy and elegant celebration filled to the brim with cosy styling, laughter and genuine emotion all captured by Danny Birrell Photography.

What Made Our Day Unique

What makes your day unique is you and the people you choose to celebrate your day with. We just wanted a big party for our friends and family to come together and have a belter, which was definitely achieved! But I have to say, the speeches were a big part of our day too and when everyone came and joined us on the dance floor for our first dance. We went into our own little cocoon and were able to just absorb the day, the two of us surrounded by everyone we love. Honestly, the list could go on, but that just goes to show it is the people around you that make it your day.

Le Petit Chateau

The Northumberland wedding venue, Le Petit Chateau, played host to this magical day. This luxury French, country manor was the ideal location for this couples winter wedding, complete with shabby chic styling and blended with elegance and beauty, a truly unique wedding venue wrapped up in history. Along with the venue, the bride's dress was beautiful, opting for a three-piece option from Charlie Brear it was the perfect ensemble to accompany this elegant day, teamed with the black bridesmaid dresses which looked incredible. All the bridal party were clutching beautiful white rose and foliage bouquets from Fleur Couture Floral again, so classy and elegant and suiting the wintery vibes excellently.

Inspiration & Styling

We definitely didn’t have a ‘theme’ for the day. Again, being a winter wedding the style and mood is already set for you. Going with this we just wanted to complement the day with very natural, wintery vibes. Music is a big part of lives so we had to bring as much of that to the day as possible - music squeezed in at every opportunity!

Remember to take time for the two of you on your wedding day. This was the best advice we received, and we did this by having a sweetheart top table and having a 10-minute breather between the day and the evening to take it all in. And do that - take it all in and enjoy it. Let the mistakes wash over you because there will be some, and crack on having a belter!
