REAL WEDDING

READ THE ROMANCE...

For many, celebrating the biggest day of their lives in the workplace might not be the ideal scenario. But when the office is a luxury Northumberland boutique wedding venue with quirks and character aplenty, there could be no other option.

Laura Wright, Events Manager at Charlton Hall, gathered her loved ones and tied the knot in the place she makes dreams a reality for countless other couples in her job. This time, the roles were reversed – having her vision of an industrial luxe, black tie extravaganza played out to perfection.

Having popped the question in August 2018 when on holiday in Mexico, Laura and Daniel threw themselves into wedding planning and immediately decided Charlton Hall was the place for them after visiting on an open day. They booked, and nine months later, Laura began working for the group as Events Manager. Talk about falling for a venue!

IT WAS LIKE NOTHING I’D EVER SEEN BEFORE. IT HAD THE PARTY ATMOSPHERE WE WANTED AND I JUST INSTANTLY KNEW IT WAS THE ONE FOR US.

INDUSTRIAL LUXE

Letting Charlton’s personality shine through, Laura and Daniel opted for a less is more approach to their styling, dressing only one room in the venue – the Looking Glass – in sleek blacks, whites and minimalist touches.

BELLE LOVES

Deconstructed table designs filled with white flowers, black cubes, perspective candelabras with ombre candles, neon signs – this was the ultimate laidback luxe vibe.

MORILEE FOR ME

Laura dazzled in a gorgeous Morilee mikado gown with plunging neckline. Utilising the expertise of Newcastle boutique Y.A.P Bridal's owner Danni, she found her perfect fit when Danni convinced her to try on this particular gown. Not her style, she was as shocked as anyone when she tried it on – yelping “THIS IS THE DRESS!” from behind the curtain. Subtle as a sledgehammer, ey?

She paired it with a gorgeously undone updo and deft glamour makeup to evoke a super stylish modern bridal look.

Q&A

Who gets the gold medal for helping to make your day amazing?

Jess Lilley, our wedding coordinator. She went above and beyond as did all of the team at Charlton to create an unforgettable day for us.

I ALWAYS TELL BRIDES THERE’S NOTHING TO BE WORRIED ABOUT BUT I WAS SHAKING LIKE A LEAF! ONCE I HEARD THE MUSIC AND MY DAD SQUEEZED MY ARM, ALL OF MY NERVES DISAPPEARED.
