A little reminder of a lovely summer wedding on the stunning North East Coast, we caught up with Sophie and Ben to hear about their day….
Why did you chose Bamburgh for your wedding location? We realised having travelled around various venues that we wanted to create our own space, and a marquee was a very beautiful way of doing that. Once we have decided that we thought – if we are putting up a marquee – we can put it anywhere! We love Bamburgh and the coast of Northumberland – it was the perfect back drop to show off Northumberland. And the clear marquee windows made it perfect.
More details about the day – We used Bolden Farmhouse Pantry as our caterers. Our menu was canapes, a buffet main course including Salmon en Croute, honey sweet potato and pomegranate salad. Pudding was a selection of four mini puddings! Delish!
Our florist was Hannah who runs Wildflower in Ouseburn. Amazing! Our photographer was the wonderful Ruth Atkinson from Liverpool and our cake maker was Ben (the Groom’s) mum and some family friends put their artist skills to the test!
What was you wedding theme, where did you get your inspiration from? My mum collected antique china and table cloths for years and this seemed like the perfect opportunity to put them to use! Essentially the theme was vintage / pastel/ country garden theme….all a bit jumbled together, but I think the overall effect worked.
Tips for other Brides and Grooms – get lots of people to help the day before your wedding! Don’t stress about details, on the day it’s just so wonderful seeing so many people you love and those things are nice, but not worth loosing sleep over. And finally DELEGATE! We loved our wedding da and really the more time you spend planning the more stressful it will get! Enjoy it and plan it quickly.
The most memorable moment – we went to take some photos on the beach and there was this incredible sunset and a lot of our family and friends were down on the beach enjoying it. It felt very joyful! Northumberland at its best!
