Kirstin & Neil planned a relaxed wedding at Ellingham Hall, near Alnwick in Northumberland last weekend. The venue welcomed guests to stay all weekend and enjoy themselves, and the couple & their family put in a huge effort to create a beautiful and fun wedding weekend for all.
Kirstin chose a Charlotte Balbier wedding gown, and gorgeous TwoBirds bridesmaid dresses from YAP Bridal in Newcastle. I’ve only ever heard amazing things about the dresses & service at YAP Bridal and Jo the owner is a friend, so I knew their dresses would be amazing and they would be over the moon all around! Neil & his groomsmen wore burgundy suits and it all went so well together.
Kirstin carried a gorgeous white gypsophila bouquet with a hint of pink, and it featured a sentimental keepsake from her Grandparent’s wedding. Tracey from Campbells Flowers created this simple but elegant bouquet, and the bridesmaids bouquets, and the men wore gypsophila buttonholes.
For this wedding, I was assisted by Debbie Stogden who was a massive help all day, and a really fun person to have around. A particular highlight was when I said “Debbie can you just block out the sun” whilst handing her a reflector. She said “But i’m only 4ft something?”…. Hilarious.
Kirstin & Neil are a lovely couple whose love and happiness for each other really shines thorough. They made their day really personal and thought of everything to look after their guests (Even flip flops for the evening so ladies could kick off their heels and have a dance!).
It was a pleasure to be there and I wish them an amazing mini-moon at Glastonbury (!!!)
Congratulations to the new Mr & Mrs Johnson on their marriage!
