Roxy & Liam:
We met in June 2015 and have been best friends ever since.
One day we decided that we wanted to be best friends for life and share a special day with our loved ones by making it official.
It all started in September 2016, after a glass or two of wine whilst enjoying a warm evening on holiday in Turkey.
I mentioned to Liam (as I do fairly frequently) how much I love him, how much he means to me and how I can't imagine life without him...however, on this occasion I added "do you fancy getting married??" He smiled and with no hesitation said yes!
I hadn't planned this, he didn't expect it, it was in the moment, but luckily it worked out pretty well!
York City Centre Wedding
We chose Middletons Hotel York
for our venue, it's a hidden treasure in the heart of the city.
It may be a small and quaint venue - but it has a lush garden area in front of the Lady Anne's building, including the old janitors cottage. It boasts a little stone courtyard with hanging green plants for the reception drinks and a conservatory for the wedding breakfast with wooden beams, dark wood floor and an open brick wall, it was just perfect.
We stayed at Middletons a couple of times before the wedding and fell in love with it a little more each time.
The team at Middletons are amazing, they did everything possible to make our wedding a day to never forget.
Geometric Copper With Floral Details
We chose the theme of geometric copper with floral and botanical elements, I never wanted anything glitzy, just cool and cosy! I made all of the hanging and table decorations myself with inspiration from the likes of Pinterest, it made the day more personal to us.
Each guest took home a little copper geometric Christmas decoration favour to hang on their tree and remember our wedding every year.
My mum brought along all of the fresh herbs from her garden for the herb table names, we had decorative sprigs on the end of each table. She also printed out the place names and provided us with an old painted screen frame for the order of the day, it looked amazing.
My 2 bridesmaids, Carole and Kimmy, my mum and I all decorated the room the day before - I couldn't have done it without them, I had the dream team of organisational wizards!
My mother made a fabulous cake! She found the recipe in Good House Keeping, it had a layer of elderflower and lemon, vanilla and black cherry and the top tier was delicious chocolate cake. We decorated it with copper geometric shapes and fresh roses - the topper was made by Etch + Cut
who make amazing bespoke perspex and wooden wedding accessories!
Phase Eight Wedding Dress
I love my dress so much, it’s called Caitlyn by Phase Eight
The dress had shimmering sequin detail with a half draped back, dropping to the floor, skimming every curve like it was designed for me, I felt amazing in it - like a classic Hollywood film star!
The bridesmaids dresses were also Phase Eight - they were called Samantha in the colour latte, they complimented my wedding dress beautifully.
My stunning couture veil and hair accessories were designed and hand made by Sew The Knot
, everything was designed beautifully and picked out the soft, light reflecting sequins in my dress, even the cheeky garter was a gorgeous added bit of glam.
Liam's dark blue 3 piece suit was from Next
, he looked a million dollars in it, too handsome to even deal with!
The flowers had a mix of colour tones & greens that matched up with our table and hanging decorations, it all tied in nicely.
I wanted a deconstructed bouquet that looked natural and wild with a soft mix of purple, cerise pink, a soft coral and plenty of mixed greens.
Fiona from Heaven Scent really delivered, they were beyond amazing - our sweetheart table looked unbelievable.
