Happy Tuesday everyone, I hope you are well. Today I am back with a superb wedding for you. A Yorkshire barn wedding filled with rustic charm. Alison and Jake had always dreamt of a barn wedding and when they found Sykes Barn they knew their wedding prayers had been answered. They set about carrying out plenty of DIY projects which all contributed to making this wedding super personal and filled with the cutest details and decoration. The couple are avid travellers so they incorporated this into their wedding decor, along with a delicious cake table, lots of hessian and, of course, plenty of rustic touches. The day was captured beautifully by M & G Photographic who did a fantastic job.
Alison and Jake were married on 3rd August 2019, the ceremony was held at the Parish Church of St. Mary’s, Driffield in Yorkshire on the Sledmere House estate on the edge of the Yorkshire Wolds. The wedding reception was held at Sykes Barn, along the road from the church and opposite Sledmere House in an old converted tractor barn. ‘We originally looked at lots of different venues and I always wanted a barn but thought it was out of our price range. After scouring all of Hull and the nearby areas we didn’t see anything we liked and didn’t like being tied into a package. I started looking at barns again and found Sledmere barn actually on a forum. We loved the rustic style of it and the authentic brickwork, so we made a booking and fell in love with it and the price too!. We also liked the fact that it was near the house and gardens, if we wanted to take any photographs there, and that is was rural and out of Hull. Jake recently walked the Yorkshire Wolds Way over the course of that year too, so it was just a perfect backdrop for our special day. We had 69 guests during the day of family and friends and then a further 40 on the evening. We got engaged on August 11th, 2017 and planned the wedding over 2 years, this was to ensure we could budget and organise the wedding we wanted and still enjoy our time over those 2 years.
Happy Monday everyone and how are you all? Did you all have a good weekend? I do hope so! mine was lovely and peaceful for once. Friday I went to see my Niece in a production of Joseph and his Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat at the Lyceum in Sheffield City centre. It was fantastic and she did so well. Then on Saturday my Mum came up to visit from Cornwall. I’ve not seen her since April, so it was a well overdue catch up. So on with this weeks weddings, today it’s the turn of Anna and Nate who were married on 10th August 2019 at Anna’s parents home in Union, Maine. This is such a cute wedding, everything about it is just so lovely. The relaxed location makes everything just flow. The beautiful bright peonies make all the decoration pop with summer goodness, the long tables filled with rustic touches, all the delicious food and of course the very happy couple. I just love this wedding, and I know you are going to love it too. Big thanks to Provencher photography for the gorgeous photos.
Today I would like to introduce you to a wonderful new app from Snapbook that allows you to download pictures straight from your phone and create customised gifts, photo books, prints, even a canvas to put on your wall. This clever little app, allows you to preserve all those treasured memories you store in your phone and turn them into something you can keep forever!
The app is the perfect way to create customised gifts for your wedding guests, favours to put out on the tables, or print off photos for a photo wall at your reception. Then once the wedding is over you can collect all your wedding photos and print them off easily and make them into photo books or even print them onto a canvas, for some wall art around your house!
Italian wedding Happy Friday everyone and how are you this very wet and soggy Friday? Here in Sheffield we are having a bit of a bad time of it with the weather, along with many parts of the country. There has been large scale flooding all over the city, so I hope that everyone is OK and no one is hurt. I hope the rain stops soon and the clean up operation can start and things can get back to normal! If the weather allows me, I am off to the theatre tonight, my Nice is in a production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, at the Lyceum in the City Centre, so I am super excited to go and watch her. Tomorrow my mum is coming up from Cornwall, again weather permitting. I haven’t seen her since April so it will be lovely for her to spend some time with Dexter and have a good catch up. What about you? anything wedding related? or maybe you have started your Christmas festivities already? Here on the blog we are celebrating the wedding of An and Davy, who held their fairy tale Italian wedding against the most perfect backdrop. I just adore their outdoor reception, so soft and romantic. It has been sent into me by Loving Marche wedding planners, with photos by Kaba Photo Studio.
An and Davy were married on 29th June, they held a weekend long wedding at Teatro Bruno Mugellini. Potenza Picena, Italy, with the reception at Pamperduto Country resort , Porto Potenza Picena. ‘We are in love with the region of Le Marche. We love the beautiful landscape. Behind every corner there is another surprise. The medieval villages, The hospitality of the people. The food…. Davy asked me to marry him during a walk among the olive trees. We had 50 guests and it took a year to plan.’
Today I want to inject some summer sunshine and warmth into your day with this super stylish styled shoot that has been sent into me by Sally Gallis from Events by Design. The shoot took place in June of this year at Architectural Plants, Pulborough in West Sussex. The team of suppliers wanted to create a Bohemian inspired shoot, but mix it up a bit by adding in a more modern twist. They used hard lines and geometrics against the softness of the botanical venue, mixing in the bright colours of the flowers and fringing of the stunning wedding dress. The results are this beautiful collection of images by Menzies Photography that play around with the idea of traditional Boho and show that you can still be Bohemian and have a modern edge.
