We are totally swooning at Your Wedding Hub HQ over this stunning real wedding – our real bride, Lucy, looked amazing in her Mori Lee dress!
Lucy and Adam had their gorgeous day at Newton Hall in Northumberland, and it looks like a fabulous day was had by everyone.
How He Asked…
“We got engaged on May 4th overlooking the Caribbean Sea on our balcony in St Lucia. We had been upgraded which was unbelievable!
Adam even sneakily managed to record the whole thing. He made me walk around the whole resort to look at these gazebos, I was in a massive huff thinking ‘why are we looking at these places – it’s so hot’! Little did I know he was actually finding the perfect place to pop the question…oops!”
The Ceremony Details…
“Our ceremony was at Newton Hall in Northumberland on 2nd December.
We had a civil ceremony, it felt formal but also we had a laugh which was so perfect.
We had 98 guests in total and his brother read ‘He Never Leaves the Seat Up’ it was fab!”
The Reception Details…
“Our reception was held at Newton Hall too.
For our Wedding Breakfast we had Thai Carrot Soup to start, for mains we had Chicken with Sunblushed Pesto, Potato and Veg, there was a Pasta Dish as an alternative for the Vegetarians and for dessert we had a White Chocolate and Baileys Cheesecake.”
The Wedding Party…
“I had my two best friends, cousin and stepsister and my niece as a flower girl. I created a ‘proposal’ box with a mini bottle of prosecco, a plaque, mini Yankee candle (wedding day scent) and some confetti. They wore a deep oxblood one shoulder velvet midi from ASOS and my Flower Girl wore a rose gold sequin top and tulle bottom dress from Monsoon.
The Groom had his three best friends and brother – they wore a three piece dark navy textured suit from Slaters with a deep burgundy knitted tie – which matched the bridesmaids perfectly.”
The Bride and Grooms outfits…
“I wore a Mori Lee by Madeline Gardner fitted duchess satin dress – just above my knee It floated out into 3 layers of chiffon.
It was so long I asked for a belt to be added just where the satin finished. The belt was called ‘Isabella Grace Lilly’ and it was sentimental as my nan was called Isabella and my niece is called Grace! I got my dress from Y.A.P bridal, Newcastle.
For shoes I wore blue satin heels from Dune inspired by Carrie from SATC.
For jewellery, I had a stunning vintage looking white and pale blue crystal necklace from Swarovski with matching stud earrings and a real diamond bracelet which my new hubby surprised me with! I wore my Nan’s wedding ring too.
He wore a Mark Darcy mismatched suit – navy trousers with a brown and navy checked tweed waistcoat and blazer with Barker shoes which were tan and navy he looked incredible!”
The Finer Details…
“I had all white flowers – including peonies which was amazing considering the time of year! The girls had a deep burgundy and white bouquet to match their dresses.
We did a lot of the decorations ourselves – I didn’t want one table to match, so it was a mix match of everything we found over the whole planning process. It looked amazing – I was so happy with the final look.
For favours we had Christmas baubles for the ladies and a bet was made on behalf of the men.”
What stands out most about your big day?
“Just how relaxed the whole day was – I never imagined my wedding day to be that informal and relaxed and it just so was!”
What advice would you give to other Brides / Grooms to be?
“Relax, enjoy and take your time. If things go wrong – shrug it off, who will even know?!”
Is there anything that you wish you knew before you tied the knot?
“I really don’t think there is! I’m glad we took our time to plan the whole thing – that would be my biggest piece of advice.”
