Samantha and Lee’s Beer and Music Loving Wedding. By Tux and Tales Photography

Happy Monday everyone and welcome along to another wonderful week.  I hope you all have had a good weekend, did you survive the wind? I have a jam-packed week of wonderful weddings planned for you, starting with this beauty from Jaye and Matt at Tux and Tales Photography.  It’s a gorgeous pub wedding with a beer and music theme, along with my favourite colour scheme of pink, yellow and teal. This wedding is simple yet has some gorgeous modern touches and some quirky twists, along with some gorgeous portrait shots taken at the local beer festival. A wonderful start to the week!

‘The most amazing day filled with Love, Laughter, Beer and Dancing. ‘

Samantha and Lee were married on 06th September 2014 at The Faversham in Leeds. ‘After talking about what we both wanted from our day, we decided we didn’t want to go down the traditional/common what your told to do route, we wanted something that reflected us as a couple more. When a friend suggested we look at The Faversham we both instantly fell in love with the place, it has an amazing outdoor space for Lee’s BBQ reception and Sam love the quirky interior space. We had 75 day guests and 130 in the evening. We started planning in April 2013 but the finer details didn’t come until around March. 2014′

How did you allocate your budget
We decided the photography was the most important part of the day so that got a big chunk of the budget, after that it was the live music as we had an acoustic guitar and vocalist in the afternoon and a 5 piece band in the evening.

How did you choose your photographer
After researching different photographers we liked the idea of having 2 people to capture the day as you got both the bride and grooms start to the day and different perspectives throughout the day. We also loved the relaxed style that Tux&Tales had.

The Dress
My dress was from a small company in The Wirral called Look Darling which specialises in 50’s and 60’s style dresses. After looking around to start with, the Idea of going to a large bridal boutique scared me, I knew I wanted a tea length dress form the 50/60s and not many boutique seemed to have a large variety to choose from then I came across Look darling. It was a very intimate low key setting which suited me. My shoes were Vivienne Westwood’s Melissa shoes. My earrings and bracelet were from the very humble River Island.

The Suit and Bridesmaids
The Suit was from ASOS. No bridesmaids.

Theme or Colour Scheme
The theme was what we liked  The colours were teal, hot pink and mustard.

Flowers
The flowers for decoration were picked by me and a friend from the local markets and my bouquet was made of maps of places me and Lee had travelled to by Paper flowers by The Pixie.

Decoration
I wanted to keep it to a minimal so there was less to worry about on the day and because I loved the interior of the Faversham I didn’t want to hide that. We saved craft beer bottles and used them as vases for the flowers. The table numbers were old records with new covers of our favourite bands.

Food
BBQ Pizza and chip butties.

Wedding Cake
The wedding cake was supplied by Amber’s Little Cakery based in Pudsey Leeds, I supplied her with an image of a cake I’d fallen in love with on Pinterest and she created a slightly different version with cupcakes to match. It was delicious. The cake topper was found on Etsy by ThePixelette, I supplied her with photographs and details of the dress and suit.

Entertainment
Matt Baxter vocals and guitar in the afternoon and The Charming Skulls pop rock covers band in the evening. We also had a selection of outdoor games but because of the rain they didn’t get used.

Buy or DIY your Stationery
I designed my save the date card myself and planned on also doing my invitation but ran out of time. The invitations were in the style of a gig ticket and designed by Ruby Tuesday Design on Etsy. The Table number was done by me with some help from a friend.

Special Moments
Jaye and Matt our photographers suggesting we go to Leeds Beer festival in the afternoon to do some shots of us there.

Advice to other couples
Do it for yourselves, don’t worry about what everybody else wants because they will love whatever you do, they are there to share your special day. Don’t fret about the day itself, some things won’t go to plan but nobody will notice because they are all busy enjoying themselves.

Biggest surprise
How quickly it went!
