From the first moment I met Emma & Chris, we hit it off straight away. We got chatting over a cuppa at their house and I left with hugs and feeling like i’d made two new friends. We had a great time at their pre-wedding shoot in Cumbria, where Emma’s from (including a stop for tea and cake) and kept in touch in the lead up to their big day.
It was a beautiful bright sunny day in August, and Emma and her bridesmaids excitedly got ready at The Garden Rooms Cottage near Corbridge. It’s a perfect location for bridal preparations with so much character.
Emma’s dress came from YAP Bridal in Newcastle, where she had a brilliant experience choosing her dress. It suited her PERFECTLY. The little BBQ hut was crying out to be photographed too 😉
Jules Fleur was the amazing florist that created some magical bouquets and displays for the wedding. Featuring lots of daisies and other wildflowers.
Emma’s Step-Dad renovated LANDROVER from scratch and painted it cream to make it perfect for Emma & Chris’ wedding… wowza…..and it had floral touches on the front from Jules Fleur.
Emma & her bridesmaids travelled to the wedding in it, and it was a real talking point at the wedding all day.
The wedding took place at High House Farm Brewery near Matfen which is a beautiful barn wedding venue in Northumberland. The barn has a wedding licence so you are able to get married outdoors, and the weather was perfect too! Emma handcrafted lots of DIY details for the day and some personalised signs. There was even a 90’s themed Photo Booth!
How seriously cute is the lego ring box?!
The ceremony was so moving and personal, lots of tears and laughter.
The photos below really sum up the happiness and excitement that shone out of the couple all day <3
The couple chose to serve down to earth ‘nibbles’ during the drinks reception rather than canapés, and they went down a treat!!!
The hay bales at the farm make such a great backdrop for photos, and Emma and Chris were only too happy to jump up for some fun shots.
The couple chose to make a donation to Blood Pressure UK, in memory of Emma’ Mum who sadly passed away the year before the wedding.
The daisy theme was a nod to her also, as it was one of her favourite flowers.
The guests were served pie & mash which went down an absolute storm!
Emma’s Dad made a hilarious slideshow of images of Emma throughout her life, and had everyone in stitches!
Here’s the famous wedding land rover!
After the meal we had a lovely walk around the farm, the light was gorgeous!!
The party got started with the first dance and everyone joined in to crack out some dance moves, to lots of 90’s cheese too!
