REAL WEDDING

READ THE ROMANCE

Jennifer and Calum, a deeply committed couple who had been together for many years, had no idea that their chance meeting at a friend's party would lead to a breathtaking wedding ceremony almost a decade later. The culmination of their love story was a magnificent affair, as Jennifer donned an enchanting Enzoani gown from The Wedding Dress Company, complemented by timeless Jimmy Choo shoes. With its alluring scooping neckline, exquisite full-length embroidery, and majestic train, Jennifer's attire made Calum feel incredibly fortunate to have her by his side.

NOT YOUR USUAL

Their shared romantic idealism became the driving force behind their tireless quest for the perfect wedding venue. However, due to the unprecedented circumstances of the Covid-19 pandemic, their wedding planning took an unconventional turn. Thankfully, social media came to their rescue, leading them to the remarkable Newton Hall, situated along the picturesque Northumberland coast.
This hidden gem provided an enchanting backdrop, transforming their wedding into a magical event. Calum, understanding the importance of Jennifer's vision, gladly let her take charge of the planning process, resulting in a joyful and fulfilling experience for her.

Newton Hall, renowned as one of the United Kingdom's most romantic and whimsical wedding destinations, exuded an intimate and refined ambiance that harmonised flawlessly with the couple's rustic yet elegant aesthetic.

The venue's cascading waterfalls and plush furnishings captured their hearts, while the exquisitely decorated bedrooms in the historic building ensured that their dearest family and friends could revel in the celebration both before and after the main event.

Transforming Jennifer's dreams into a tangible reality was Fleur Couture Floral, a guest list favourite florist. With a remarkable display of neutral-coloured blooms, delicately accented by touches of pampas grass—a particular favourite of Jennifer's—Fleur Couture Floral brought forth an ambiance that was nothing short of magical and meaningful. Their artistry truly brought the couple's fairytale wedding to life.

I CHOSE SIMPLE NEUTRAL FLOWERS, WITH A HINT OF PAMPAS IN (AS THESE ARE MY FAVOURITE), I WANTED A WILD, LOOSE LOOK, WHICH FLEUR COUTURE CREATED PERFECTLY. FROM MAIN FLOWERS, TO ROOM DECOR TO BUTTON HOLES - THEY WERE PERFECT! 

JENNIFER, THE BRIDE

In the end, Jennifer and Calum's journey from a chance encounter to a grand wedding celebration was a testament to their unwavering love and commitment. Their meticulous planning, coupled with the magic woven by Newton Hall and Fleur Couture Floral, resulted in a day that will forever be cherished by both the couple and their loved ones.

 BRIDE Q&A 

How did you find THE dress to say ‘I do’ in?
"I researched online, bought lots of wedding magazines, tried lots of dresses on (13 to be exact). I remember seeing 'the one' on The Wedding Dress Company's Instagram as at the time it was middle of lockdown so planning was slightly different for us.
I remember thinking if I try this dress on and I love it still – its the one. And sure enough me, my mum and sister attended The Wedding Dress Company for an appointment and I completely fell in love with the dress, tears were shed, it was such a memorable day.
Talk us through the logistics of your look - were you comfy all day? Did you have a second evening outfit? Spill all!
My dress was so comfy, the alterations were perfect by the Groom and Co. They ensured I was 100% happy, they even adapted a little lace panel to the sides and front of my dress. I also knew I wanted open toe wedding shoes for comfort - and it did the trick - I lasted pretty much nearly the full day in my heels before the comfy flip flops made an appearance.
Talk to us about your food and menu choices (we all know it’s the best part!)
One word for the food - AMAZING! My favourite course had to be my Baileys White Chocolate Cheesecake (as cheesecake is my favourite foodie), followed by the Limoncello Sorbet - very refreshing course, which all our guests loved too – would definitely recommend this to any other couple.
