Rachael and Phil’s Wedding
Monday, March 27th, 2017
We are thrilled to be bringing you the details on this truly charming and utterly gorgeous wedding. Throughout Rachael’s time with us in the boutique she shared little snippets of her day and we just couldn’t wait to see how everything came together on the big day, and WOW it really is amazing! The Yorkshire Wedding Barn was the perfect choice for Rachael and Phil’s wedding, nestled among the North Yorkshire Dales it creates an outstanding backdrop of natural beauty. Rachel wore Bardot by Jenny Packham opting for a relaxed yet elegant bridal style perfectly mirroring the other details of the day. We loved hearing all about their big day and we got lost in wedding wonderland going through these images captured by the very talented Sally T Photography, we are sure you will enjoy them too.
The wedding venue is fairly new and we didn’t even know it existed until we got engaged and totally fell in love with it the first time we saw it. The venue is in the middle of the North Yorkshire countryside with incredible views. The actual ceremony took place outside in a gazebo overlooking the lake (luckily the weather held out!). The reception was in the converted barn.
One of the biggest selling points for us was that there was accommodation on site for over 50 of our friends and family so we had one big weekend long party!! We didn’t have a particular theme or scheme in mind but we knew we wanted to keep the styling fairly simple and I was adamant I didn’t want to stick to a specific colour scheme, I’m not a fan of anything too “matchy matchy” so we just used mainly natural colours, lots of nudes, creams and greens.
I obsessively followed “rock my wedding” and “love my dress” and found quite a few of our suppliers through these. I also used Instagram a lot but found Pinterest was a lot more American and found a lot of the stuff on there a bit OTT!
I didn’t want anything too bridal I just wanted something simple but classy and elegant at the same time. I loved every minute of my experience in the Boutique! The shop itself is so opulent and stylish and we were so well looked after. The selection of gowns was incredible and I had a ball trying them on. I never once doubted that my dress wouldn’t be anything other than perfect on the day and it was. Everything started to feel much more real once I’d picked the dress and I just couldn’t wait then to start deciding on hair styles and accessories etc!
Enjoy it and to go with your gut when choosing. I worried afterwards that I’d chosen too quickly as I bought my dress on my one and only day of dress shopping but I now know I’d never have found a dress that I liked more than the one I picked.
Walking down the aisle and seeing Phil for the first time. I was really worried beforehand that I would be terrified to walk down the aisle because I usually hate being the centre of attention but actually on the day I felt so fabulous in my dress and excited to see Phil that I couldn’t get down the aisle quick enough! That was by far the best part of the day for me.
Thank you so much to the Bridal Collection for helping me choose THE dress! I felt so special trying on the different gowns and could not have been more in love with my wedding dress. You guys were all fabulous!
