Beamish Hall: Kathryn And David’s Traditional, But Modern Day

20 September 2018
By Sarah Adams

Here at Belle Bridal we love sharing celebrations that have taken place at venues that are home to our Wedding Wonder Shows, and today we have the beyond gorgeous wedding of Kathryn and David, captured by the award-winning Focal Point Photography. Quintessentially English, Kathryn and David’s wedding was classic and elegant with a fresh and modern twist.

“We chose Beamish Hall because it embodies the rare quality of being absolutely stunning, yet not pretentious. We wanted to have an exclusive use venue that we could make our own and host our friends and family for the weekend, and Beamish Hall felt like home to us.”

“It’s proximity to Beamish Museum makes it extra special, as the museum houses Kathryn’s mining family heritage, and is a place where she has made lots of special memories growing up. Aside of that, Kathryn’s parents booked a surprise helicopter ride to take us to the reception at Beamish Hall. It was really special seeing the Angel of the North and Beamish Hall from the air! Kathryn’s parents also secretly arranged for the family Labrador, Tilly, to walk down the aisle as a surprise ring bearer. There was a chorus of ‘aww’ as she came down the aisle, and such a lovely surprise!”

Favourite part of the day?
“We both agreed that our favourite part of the day was saying our vows to each other – we both got a little emotional!”

Advice for future brides and grooms?
“Try not to worry about the things you can’t control, like the weather, and enjoy the planning as much as possible – you’ll only do it once! On the day, trust your suppliers, they’re the experts and will guide you throughout the day so you’re free to just soak it all in and enjoy. From the moment we met at the altar, we spent the rest of our wedding day together, making memories. It’s so easy to get separated, but let guests come to you as a couple instead so you don’t miss out on time together.”

Words of WOW:
“We can’t thank all of our wonderful suppliers enough for all of their help, advice and guidance. They’re now more friends than suppliers, and we wouldn’t have changed a thing!”
