Danby Castle wedding venue is set in the beautiful Whitby and was the perfect choice for this gorgeous celebration. The bride looked beautiful in an Emma Beaumont wedding dress (who is one of our amazing handpicked suppliers!) with lace detail and a pretty hairpiece, flanked by her four bridesmaids who wore grey multiway dresses all clutching foliage bouquets. The foliage was definitely the theme of the day, saying their I Do’s in front of a foliage wreath and the wooden wedding breakfast tables littered in eucalyptus leaves. Wanting to move away from traditions, the wedding speeches were held outdoors in the castle ruins followed by pie and mash served inside on wooden benches that the couple had designed themselves! They even did a ‘First Dance’ sweepstake and gave the guests 100 song options for them to guess their first dance number and the lucky winners took home £100! The photography was definitely important to this couple, as the bride and groom are amazing wedding photographers, Abbie Sizer Photography, and one of our handpicked suppliers!
Today’s Dorfold Hall wedding is pretty as a picture; with an immense floral moon gate ceremony backdrop and impressive acrylic and floral hoop centrepieces in the reception. All of these fabulous details pay homage to the grooms drumming skills, with the favours and stationery honouring his Italian heritage. Such lovely ways to make a day personal. Adding to the cute factor were the bride and grooms children in grey tulle dresses, reminiscent of mummy’s froufrou bridal skirt.
This gothic wedding is beautifully styled infusing the couples Irish heritage and their love for everything winter. Foraged evergreen foliage added a touch of wild nature to the day, whilst the cosy candlelight and open fires made a haven inside on the dark November night. The Pilgrim’s Rest played host this celebration, found next to Battle Abbey, with witch’s symbols engraved on the venue’s window ledges and the tales of spirits accentuated by the haunting sounds of the Gaelic Uillean pipes. Keeping all the suppliers as local as possible this bride and groom made the most of East Sussex is a creative place and everyone executed their vision and ethos perfectly.

A simple, relaxed wedding whilst also enjoying a lovely day at a National Trust owned pub in Evesham with a gorgeous dahlia wedding bouquet and a delicate lace wedding dress. This summer day was covered with personal touches including a homemade cake table by members of the family, a mint green Land Rover and even an outdoor bowling alley to keep the guests entertained. The fun continued long into the evening with everyone dancing and singing away with the ceilidh band at the medieval-styled barn party all captured by Rosie Kelly Photography.
