Boho Planned Weddings: A Purple themed wedding for a Royal wedding day celebration

Today I am at last able to share with you my first Boho wedding of this season. the wedding has been published in the new Yorkshire Bride Magazine which went into the shops on August 31st, and as normal with the printed press it can’t be blogged until it is out there in circulation.

So here you have the wedding of Jo and Matt who got married on 29th April (yes the day of the royal wedding) at Wentbridge House in West Yorkshire. They booked me for my on the day co-ordination service along with a photography search, and they were more than delighted with Jon from S6 Photography who I found for them!

The day itself was very relaxed and chilled out, with a ceremony at 4pm and then drinks, canapes and speeches along with some live music outside on the lawn along with some April sunshine! evening food along with more guests was served at 8pm and that’s when the party really started!

I know Jo and Matt through on of my oldest and best friends Becky, so it was lovely to be involved in their day, Becky was one of the wedding guests along with her two children and Husband Bertie, so it was great to break away from wedding duties every now and again and spend some time with them. I must say a thank you to Jo for letting me go into the Bridal suite before she got to the hotel to watch the royal wedding on her TV, I  did get to see part of the ceremony but missed the rest as my planning duties took over! I still havn’t watched the whole thing even though it’s been sky + for months!

What were your special moments or highlights?
Seeing all our guests & Matthew as I walked on to the ceremony room, walking out of the ceremony as husband & wife, our first dance

Is there anything you would do differently?
Nothing significant – all was as good as we could have imagined

What advice would you give any other couples?
Relax & go with the flow – take time out now & again to take note of what’s around you, it’s so easy to miss things on the day

What was your biggest surprise of the day?
That I didn’t cry during the ceremony!

What was the best bit about having me involved with your wedding?
That although you handled the day coordination for me, you double checked it was how I wanted it to be to ensure it was as good as I had imagined – ideal for me.
