I have a truly gorgeous wedding for you today, all the way from Wisconsin! Aloura...
Morning all and happy Monday to you all, welcome to another week! To ease you into the week I have a GORGEOUS wedding for you and it’s been sent to me by my good Friend Sassy from Assassynation. I have to say I LOVE this wedding, it has hay bails, cows, chickens…….and lots of rustic details, all the things I love. The wedding takes place at Danby Castle, a gorgeous venue full of quirky details and lost of charm! It’s a venue I’ve not visited yet but can’t wait to get myself up north to see it, as it looks AMAZING! and would certainly be on my short list if i were to ever tie the knot again (or renew my vows!) I’m a sucker fro any venue where there are animals and a bit of country side!
The wedding is of Clair and Stephen Butler who got married on 29th August this year.
How did you meet?
We met through friends and went out on a blind date 6 and half years
What made you decide to get married where you did?
Beautiful location and the venue was really open to what you can do for your day, anything goes!!
Who was your dress by
And the suit?
How would you sum up your day?
Amazing, unique to us, relaxed, fun and personal
Did you have a theme or colour scheme?
Vintage theme. we didn’t have a colour scheme as such is was more rustic the flowers were red and cream withgreen foliage
Did you have any personal touches? Or things that you did yourself?
The cake was a capital “B” with stick in signs saying MR & MRS – this was a total surprise for the Groom. We arranged a basket of flip flops with a sign saying dancing shoes for the female guests and these went down a treat. We had a photo booth, ice cream van and retro sweetie table for the guest to enjoy.
How many guests?
What were your special moments and highlights?
The whole day was special- from the vows to the last dance, but we decided to go out for a drive in the VW camper van (wedding car) after the ceremony for a few extra snaps and grabbed the chance to spend some alone time by going for a cheeky drink in the local pub to the venue.
Is there anything you would do differently?
Not a thing
What advice would you give any other couples?
Relax and savour every moment as the day goes quickly and ensure you grab a moment together to take the whole day in.
What was your biggest surprise of the day?
We both didn’t know what one another was wearing and it was a fantastic surprise when we clapped eyes on each other, very emotional.
For a special treat I also have a rather fab video from the day to feature along with these gorgeous photos, courtesy of Sassy n Frank
