A Botanical, Country-Inspired Wedding
Digital marketing manager Harriet and her groom, internet marketing executive Charlie were married on 16th September 2017 at St Saviours Church in Harome, North Yorkshire, which they followed up by having an evening reception.
“We wanted a simple country wedding with a lot of flowers! We wanted something classically pretty and ideal for the countryside setting. We wanted it to feel simple yet beautiful.”
“My bridesmaid wore an attractive pink embroidered dress having a low back. I only had my sister as my adult bridesmaid, which meant she could pick whatever she wanted. Lucy, my other bridesmaid, wore an outfit. My white flower girl dresses were from FeelTimes plus they wore pink sparkly shoes together.”
“I had my dress designed for me since I knew precisely what I wanted and I’m so glad I did. I visited Chambers, a tailor much less far from our London home plus they did an incredible job. The dress was beautiful and also the tailoring was perfect. I wanted it to be classic and timeless, but additionally pretty and flattering. It ended up so much much better than I could have imagined! Chambers also provided my veil and my shoes were a blush pink set of shoes I bought whilst in America.”
The wedding couple met with an online dating site long ago in 2012 and, following a mountain-top proposal within the Brecon Beacons, gave themselves 1.5 years to plan the day of their dreams.
“I didn’t wish to climb the mountain but Charlie insisted. Once we reached the top he explained he had something special for me. I didn’t know what it had been immediately but he told me it had been a Welsh spoon that Welsh men share with their wives. He then got recorded on one knee and proposed having a bracelet of white roses – it had been very romantic!”
“We find the church and venue once we loved the thought of being able to walk between your two. They’re also both very beautiful places and places my loved ones have celebrated at before.”
Captured on camera through the brilliant North Yorkshire-based wedding photographer, it had been a day to consider.
“Sally was amazing! We loved her type of photography, which is much more relaxed and less formal than some wedding photographers we’d seen. She was brilliant on your day and captured a lot of moments we didn’t know were happening at that time! We honestly couldn’t recommend her enough.”
“The best benefit of getting married inside a small village is the fact that we could walk back and forth from the church. Walking in the village during my dress with my father, mum, step mum, sister and bridesmaid was this type of special experience and something I’ll always remember. After the ceremony, we walked to support the high road wonderful guests. It meant we didn’t be concerned about cars or any form of transportation too.”
“The little boys all wore shirts and chinos with gorgeous green bow ties with cute little tractors in them.”
“All of the men, including Charlie, wore pale grey suits. We also bought matching ties and pocket squares. The groom, best man, ushers, and our fathers were all matching and looked very smart.”
“We didn’t do wedding favors for everybody, but we did do packages for each from the children. These were covered with brown paper and tied up with string using their place names in it. Inside we put a coloring book, some crayons, a pet mask, some finger puppets, some bubbles along with a curly straw.”
“I don’t think I can resolve an exact favorite moment from the big day as the whole day was wonderful! I think the time soon after the ceremony has become the peak. It was this type of relief that people were married and everything choose to go well. If everything choose to go wrong after that (it didn’t, thankfully!) only then do we were married and encompassed by people we loved which was everything mattered.”
Words Of Wedded Wisdom
“It’s an overwhelming day. You’re conscious that the people in your life love you and love your relationship however they don’t often let you know. Except on your big day, when everyone does. It’s completely overwhelming so attempt to get your head around that before your day.”
