We'll hand you over to the bride, Katie, so that you can have a nosey at these stunning images captured by Marie Anson Photography and find out a little more about their nuptials…
TELL US ABOUT YOUR WEDDING VENUE…
“We wanted a venue that ticked many boxes. It needed to be big enough to host a ceilidh band during the evening reception, but have enough character to create an atmospheric and intimate day. We were impressed the overall appearance of Hazel Gap Barn and their relaxed and friendly ethos.”
DESCRIBE THE STYLE OF YOUR WEDDING…
“Rustic & romantic. We chose a grey colour scheme which was complemented by dramatic purple and blue flowers which were used to dress the venue – from the ceremony room, to the tables, the beams and the table plans.
We were helped massively by our parents who became quite crafty when it came to making things, from the ‘welcome’ board and the table plan mirror, to signs directing the use of the polaroid camera and the sweetie table. We wanted it to be as personal as possible – my garter was made by the groom’s mother and had both of my nana’s wedding bands stitched into it. We also had a display of family photographs of family members (past and present) that are/were special to us both.”
WHAT DID YOU ALL WEAR?
“My dress was a Martina Liana from Emily Bridalwear in Sheffield. The girls there were amazing – I went to them with an idea and they knew exactly what I was looking for. The bridesmaids wore Willow & Pearl wrap dresses. The Groom chose to wear a kilt due to his Scottish heritage and we also decided that it would be nice for the groomsmen to also wear them.”
WHAT DID EVERYBODY EAT & DRINK?
“Canapés and Pimms immediately after the reception, then a three course wedding breakfast consisting of traditional English favourites such as Ribeye steak with all of the trimmings and treacle tart for dessert.”
HOW DID YOU ENTERTAIN YOUR WEDDING GUESTS?
“A harpist played before the wedding ceremony and throughout. After the ceremony we had a acoustic guitarist who played throughout the wedding breakfast. Following that we had a Scottish ceilidh band during the evening reception.”
DO YOU HAVE ANY WORDS OF ADVICE FOR FUTURE BRIDES & GROOMS?
“We were unsure about whether or not you go for a videographer (due to the added cost) but can honestly say we are so glad we did – it captures so many special moments.”
