What a way to start the week! Miranda looks like bridal perfection in this stunning Vera Wang gown. Their whole day looks gorgeous and Taitlands is a cracking Northern venue. I have been a big fan of Holly’s for a while so it is lovely to finally blog some of her gorgeous work, makes it even better than she is based in Yorkshire.

Dress – Vera Wang, It’s called Lark, when I went to Vera Wang with my mum I never thought I would end up getting a dress from there, the lady in the shop suggested I try it on, and as soon it was on that was it, I knew it was the one for me.
Accessories – I wore a vanilla sash from Vera Wang that I had embellished by Lou Lou Puchalka (louloupuchalka.com), she also made my headpiece, they were both absolutely gorgeous and worked really well with the dress.
Shoes – I wore some embellished sandals from Dune.
I wore my hair down with loose curls and pulled round to one side- curtesy of LivHair (from harrogate), my makeup was quite natural with a bit more on the eyes this was done by Danni Alexandra.
My flowers were absolutely stunning, very girly with various shades of pink in big blouse blooms (peonies, roses and hydrangeas). I loved my bouquet it was gorgeous. Flowers were by Erica Berry
Adam wore a dark grey Hugo Boss 3 piece suit with a d&g white shirt, I was really nervous about walking down the aisle and being very emotional as I had been all morning without my dad there, but as soon as I saw Adam smiling at me my nerves disappeared.
I came across Belle and Beau Photography on a wedding blog and I just fell in love with the pictures and the moments that had been captured. When I got in touch and spoke to Holly she was so laid back and friendly that I knew I wanted her to photograph my wedding, and I’m so pleased with the pictures they’re amazing and really captured the whole atmosphere of the day.
My gorgeous bridesmaids wore floor length Dessy dresses in a slate grey colour, each one had a slightly different style to suit them. The groomsmen wore next suits in a dark grey, with white shirts and a pink tie.
We made pink starburst vodka in small apothecary bottles for favours
For the rest of the decor, the main thing was the trees I decorated with flowers which formed an arch for the ceremony and then we’re used to decorate around the dance floor, we had giant lit up letters with our initial, lots of pink Pom poms that I made with the help of my mum and one of my bridesmaids, and some small vases and candles to decorate the entrance.
I helped design my cake which was made by my mother in law Karen, it was a gorgeous 5 tiered cake decorated with lace, flowers and leaves. Working from the bottom up there was carrot, lemon, chocolate, Madeira and fruit! It was absolutely delicious.
During the ceremony we had a string quartet who were fab, they played their version of Halo as I walked down the aisle, and continued to play throughout the drinks reception (simply strings). In the evening we had a 10 piece band play (groove allstars) they were amazing and really got the party going. The band played our first dance which was Ray LaMontagne- you are the best thing.
