Pretty in Pink {The Wedding of Yvonne and Will}

Yvonne and Will’s wedding venue was a lovely blank canvas with a beautiful back drop of rolling green hills and clear blue skies. Yvonne had a vision of pretty pinks, pom poms, bunting and lots of delicate flowers. With the help of her lovely bridesmaids they brought the day to life!

Over to Yvonne to tell you about her big day…

“We wanted a summer outdoor wedding but didn’t want a marquee so we were looking online for barns, farms and gardens. We saw Townfield Barn, Bamford online and wasn’t sure about the venue based on the photos we saw online however the price was cheap so we thought we’d go and have a look anyway.


We were pretty much sold as soon as we got parked up. The open field, the gorgeous back drop, the rustic Dutch barn, the stone walls. We knew it was going to be a hard work but I knew what I wanted to do with the space as soon as I saw this empty canvas.

It wasn’t a registered place for use to legally get married so we went to the registry office at the Sheffield  Town Hall a few days before. We held a short but sweet blessing at the barn.

We wanted a chilled relaxed wedding, the shabby chic-ness just sort of happened and fitted well with the venue.

I originally wanted a more practical, comfortable dress so was trying on A line floaty style dresses. The more I tried on the more I started to feel it wasn’t the style for me. I then saw a fitted Mori Lee dress in the sales rack in my size and thought I’d give it a go. I fell in love with it straight away and knew it was the one! It was a strapless fishtail piece, in the most amazing gorgeous lace. I was quite self-conscious about it being backless so I had the seamstress add some straps with some of the lace tacked onto it to cover my back a little. My advice, don’t go for what you think is best, go for what you want!

As it was a DIY wedding, pretty much all my weekends from when we booked the venue was used to make decorations- pom poms, bunting, wedding favours etc. Defiantly a lot of blood sweat and tears and bargain hunting went into planning for this day. I had a lot of help from my wonderful bridesmaids. Everything that has wording/drawings on it, from the stationary to the frames was done by my very talented graphic designer bridesmaid. We raided gardens and went to the flower market a few days before and had a friend make the bouquets.

We got ice cream from a local dairy farm, Our Cow Molly it was amazing tasty ice cream! We also hired an all-day bar from Bar Hire Yorkshire. They had great prices and wonderful staff.

We had cupcakes and an small cake from Kilner’s Bakery. They were very helpful and gave us exactly what we wanted!

My advice would be to sit down and think about budget and write a list of things you need to do. Keep up and maintain the list. I found it very satisfying being able to cross things off the list and finding things below budget!”
