Real Wedding -Lillie & Zyen’s Beautiful Fusion Wedding

One of the many reasons we love our jobs so much, is that no two weddings are ever the same and after all, variety is the spice of life, or so they say! We’re incredibly lucky to be involved in so many beautiful events and none more so than the gorgeous fusion wedding of Lillie & Zyen, who partied the night away at one of our favourite venues, The Normans

Venue Spotlight – Wharfedale Grange

We promised to bring you more of the fabulous new venues that we’ve been visiting and we weren’t fibbing! Today we wanted to share Wharfedale Grange which is just beautiful. We recently catered there for Jess & James’s wedding and can’t wait to be back there again to see the transformation of the barns unfold.

Here’s the story, as told by Wharfedale themselves..

‘Once upon a time, nestled in the emerald fields between Leeds and Harrogate, there was a beautiful collection of run-down barns just waiting to be restored to a glory that hadn’t ever been considered before, along came a Style Queen with exceptional good taste running through her veins, and with blooming flowers, flourishing fruits and a King’s ransom, she brought them back to life.

Wharfedale Grange is bathed in luxury – this truly magical redevelopment of four barns is being completely transformed into a farmhouse-luxe paradise. As your Fairy Godmother, we grant you one of the most exclusive retreats in Yorkshire, with a breathtaking vista that spans from Kirkby Overblow to Weeton, taking in the whole of the North Park of Harewood House, your wedding dreams can finally come true. You and your loved ones will be enchanted with our modern-yet-timeless vibe, in which we’ve thought of everything. We call it ‘Romantic Industrialist’.

We invite you to step away from the grey of every day life, and into our wedding wonderland. We’ve cast a spell to cater for your every need. Enter our world, where you will find a stunning ceremony room, luxurious cocktail bar, sparkling chandeliers and elegant, soft velvet furnishings in our trademark colours of the palest blush pink, charcoal grey, rose gold and washed royal blue. With mezzanines giving us the ultimate flexibility, we can accommodate wedding parties from 50 – 250. The Father-of-the-Bride will be treated like a King, with the beer of his choice served on draught. Mums will feel like Queens as they look on with true contentment at the pure joy and delight oozing from their very dearest VIP’s as they rejoice in the biggest and best day of their lives. And we haven’t forgotten about your Ladies-in-Waiting either, as they giggle towards the loos, only to discover a Gossip Room… complete with a Prosecco tap!’

It sounds absolutely amazing doesn’t it?

There is so much to love about this amazing venue but we think you should go and check it out for yourselves. They still have some 2018 dates and there is a 20% discount for dates in the same year booked prior to the completion of all the renovations – that’s an offer not to be missed! (Please confirm T’s & C’s with them!)

Venue Introduction.. the very lovely The Barns, East Yorkshire…

We’ve been hitting the road a lot lately to check out some of the stunning new venues that have recently launched and boy do we have some beauties for you! We’ll be introducing them all via the blog and today we’re starting with the beautiful The Barns, East Yorkshire, which is in Faxfleet, near Howden.

the-barns

The Barns, East Yorkshire is set in open countryside with stunning views and a riverside location and they provide a unique, rustic space for you to create your perfect event. On a farmyard with easy access to the road network, it has breathtaking views over three rivers and a nature reserve so ticks all the boxes for having a fantastic space you can make your own whilst being all kinds of pretty before you’ve even done a thing.

There is a beautiful 18th Century brick barn which will soon have a ceremony licence, allowing you to use the venue for your entire day. As if it doesn’t already have enough plus points, free camping is also available, certainly a great idea if you’re having a Festival themed wedding and there are other barns available along with a grass field and a gravel yard. The Barns offers the flexibility for a wedding of up to 180 people, or a smaller, more intimate day.
