A quintessential proposal, after a romantic meal for two, childhood sweethearts Rachel and Thomas went for a stroll along Saltburn pier. In front of a glistening sunset, Tom got down on one knee and asked Rachel to make him the happiest man in the world.
The couple’s floral theme fitted perfectly with the extensive grounds and elegant architecture of Acklam Hall. With a flower wall inside and avenue trees outside, the Grade I listed building was the memorable venue Rachel and Thomas had dreamed of, and with the addition of a photo booth, the celebrations were truly unforgettable.
Taking #Wedspiration from Instagram, the bride had been looking for her ‘I Do’ gown online when she had come across a page featuring Stella York gowns.
‘Every single dress was to die for.’ – Rachel
Falling in love with almost every gown by the designer that she saw made Rachel’s decision on a dress almost impossible. Thankfully, when she visited local stockist Joanne Kay Bridal Boutique in Stokesley, they were able to lend a helping hand.
A vision in beading, the bride walked down the aisle in a delicate, form-fitting gown. Followed by a gossamer, chapel-length veil.
‘His reaction was just something else.’ – Rachel
One moment Rachel will never forget is the emotional exchange when her dad first walked in the room and saw her in her gown.
Dinner for Two
‘The best advice I could give? It’s only something little but…’ – Rachel
Usually at a wedding there is a large top table, but Rachel and Thomas put their own stamp on their day by opting for a sweetheart table for just the two of them. As many bride’s will say, your wedding day is one of the most exciting days of your life and time can really fly, so having the wedding breakfast to spend some time just the two of them gave the pair time to sit and really take the day in.
