When you put real wedding features together everyday, you start to get a feel for suppliers and designers that people really, really love. Hayley is most definitely one of those people. Whenever we feature a wedding from Yorkshire, the Bride mentions Hayley’s boutique, Glory Days. In fact just this week, gorgeous real Bride Poppy wore an original 60s crochet dress bought from Hayley. We were really excited to hear that last year Hayley was debuting her first collection of vintage inspired ready-to-wear bridal gowns, the Zena May collection from Rolling In Roses. And we’re even more excited that this year, we’ve got the exclusive on her second collection, Cynthia Rose, and not only that, but one of you lovely lot can WIN ANY DRESS from the collection to wear for your own big day.
I know I’m not supposed to say this, but I just can’t help it. Samuel Docker is one of my favourites and I’m not afraid to admit it. There. I said it. We’ve featured a plethora of gorgeous weddings from him over the years, each one as individually stylish and beautifully captured as the next. Poppy and Thom’s big day delivers on both of those counts too. I love it when a Bride embraces a vintage look and Poppy pulls off her 60s inspired make up and gowns (yes, gowns) with aplomb.
Their stunning venue, Gray’s Court provides everything you would want from a boutique hotel wedding venue – it’s elegant, understated, not too big, not too small, in fact, it’s just the right size. And Poppy tells us that it’s family owned and run which always makes our heart sing. You just know you’re in good hands when that’s the case.
Right, lets enjoy this glorious 60s inspired day then shall we? It’s a good’un…and I’ve not even mentioned Poppy’s turn on the mic, the naked wedding cake or the handwritten note from designer Paul Smith.
