Currently the UK weather is pretty rubbish! As I look out of my window, the...
If you remember back to last June, we had a mini heat wave. I remember it distinctly as it was Dexter’s birthday and we had his birthday in a very hot and very sweaty play centre. The date of his party was the same date as today’s wedding and as you can tell from the photos, it was a scorcher! Sarah and Lawrence were lucky enough to pitch up their tipi in their friend’s farm in Harrogate in North Yorkshire. The rest of the wedding was pulled together by creating lots of elements themselves and being really clever with their budget. The results are this super laid-back, sun drenched wedding day, where you would be forgiven for thinking we were somewhere in the Mediterranean! Big thanks to Alfred and Co Photography for the photos.
Sarah and Lawrence were married on 17th June 2017. The ceremony at Christchurch Darley, Darley, Harrogate, North Yorkshire, with the reception at a friends farm in Dacre, Harrogate, North Yorkshire. ‘Sarah grew up in Darley and her father’s ashes are in the garden of rest at the church. We had 100 guests for the day and 130 in the evening, it took 18 months to plan.’

Today I have another gorgeous Swedish wedding for you. I seem to be getting lots of beautiful submissions from Sweden at the moment which is fabulous, as the weddings there are just amazing.. This one, sent in by Jana Julian ,is no exception. Ida and Morten really wanted to hold their wedding ceremony outside and struggled for some time to find the perfect venue, until they came across Klevens loge, Uppgränna. The venue allowed them to have the outdoor ceremony they wanted with their reception held inside in the most gorgeous rustic barn. They filled it with handmade decoration, lots of lighting and draped fabric and the results are stunning!
Ida and Morten were married on 1st July 2017. ‘Both ceremony and reception took place at “Klevens loge” in the outskirts of Gränna, Sweden where I (Morten) grew up. We had an outdoor ceremony with the lake “Vättern” in the background. The reception was held inside the barn. We had searched for the right place for quite some time. It was important to us that we could have an outdoors ceremony and to get that bohemian feeling so we were on the lookout for a barn. Luckily in the end we found the perfect location. The place had the most amazing view and a great barn that we could decorate as we wanted from scratch. We had 70 guests and it took almost a year.’
Happy Monday everyone, I do hope you had a wonderful weekend and that you are all rested and ready for the week ahead? My weekend was spent with a very rare night out for Nik and I. We went over to Matlock for my friends 20th wedding anniversary party! It was a fab night and great to catch up with so many old friends. We are starting the week off in style with this stunning wedding from my good friend Jon at S6 Photohraphy. It’s a wedding that is dear to me as the lovely couple Laura and Jonny have used all local suppliers, many of which are my friends and a lot are in house experts here on the blog. It’s an amazing wedding, set in a local warehouse so filled with cool decor, stunning flowers and it just looks amazing! It really does show Sheffield off in the best light with some of our top suppliers.
Laura and Jonny were married on 9th December 2017 the Ceremony was at 99 Mary Street, Sheffield, with the reception at Trafalgar Warehouse. ‘We got officially married the day before at Sheffield Town Hall with only our close family, then we took them to The Riverside in Kelham Island – the place that we met – for food and drinks. We’re both from Sheffield and love the city but when it comes to wedding venues, we knew that we wanted to steer clear of the more traditional venues Sheffield has to offer as they just didn’t feel like us. We loved the urban, industrial feel of Mary Street and Trafalgar and knew we could do something really special there, that reflected us as a couple. We kept it to 80 in the day and 100 for the evening. We sorted out the big stuff early on and then we left a lot of it until a few months before. We just didn’t want it to take over so we sorted a few bits at a time and didn’t let it get stressful.’
