Blush Blooms for an Idyllic Alnwick Garden Wedding in Northumberland

This is hands down one of our favourite weddings of the year! The lovely Bridie and Dan married in a traditional church ceremony near home and then traveled to one of our top venues; the amazing Alnwick Garden for their wedding reception. Bridie had the most sophisticated yet relaxed taste and chose stunning peonies and nude roses and stocks for her and her bridesmaids’ bouquets, the buttonholes and candelabra table centres – all captured here in style by our friend Helen Russell Photography. The couple complemented the flowers perfectly with... Read the Rest →


Berries and Blooms – a Styled Photo Shoot with Helen Russell Photography and Belle Bridal Magazine

Last year we planned a styled photo shoot for Belle Bridal Magazine’s SS15 issue to take place at The Old Vicarage in Castleside. I decided to go with a rich plum and pop of fuchsia pink colour scheme mixed with vintage lace details and mercury glass.

Nicola and Jon at Ellingham Hall by Helen Russell Photography

Luckily the couple had an amazing photographer and Helen Russell has already shared this lovely wedding over on her blog. Make sure you check it out here: Here are some of our own images...

Champagne and Roses – Rachel and Tom at Close House

From the minute I met Rachel at her consultation I was excited to dress this wedding! This was my only wedding of 2013 at the magnificent Close House Hotel and Golf Club, just outside of Newcastle. It is a stunning venue for weddings, but will unfortunately be unable to book from next year. Rachel wanted something understated to complement the ornate deco in the Argent D’Or Suite, and decided to go with our champagne coloured sashes with crisp white chair covers. Helen Russell photographed the wedding in her usual beautiful... Read the Rest →
