REAL WEDDING

Read the Romance...

Emeliene and Jake tied the knot with a gorgeous tonal affair at Matfen Hall in Northumberland as if fresh from a movie scene, and their love story began in a similar vain – at the cinema. From their night at the movies, this pair locked love languages straight away it seems, and their relationship blossomed before Jake finally popped the question on a city break to Prague in 2019. It was the “fairytale proposal” – high atop Petrin hill overlooking the city surrounded by fairy lights, before delving into a chocolate fondue and bottle of Prosecco. Blissful, right? 

Fast forward to May 2021 and the duo were finally ready to get hitched. Luckily enough for them the 30 guest rule stood, so their original date went ahead without any Covid calamities or postponement heartbreak. 

Magic of Matfen 

On choosing their wedding venue – arguably the most crucial cog in the wedding wheel – Emeliene and Jake came home from Prague and immediately started viewing. Their first? Matfen Hall in Northumberland, and just as she was decisive in choosing her beau, Emeliene fell hook line and sinker for this grand manor house.

AS SOON AS WE WALKED INTO THE GREAT HALL MY EYES JUST FILLED UP. ON THAT DAY WE RESERVED OUR WEDDING DATE.

EMELIENE, THE BRIDE

With Cathedral-like architecture and a sweeping staircase, this was one bridal entrance that will go down in history. Looking a picture of perfection Emeliene dazzled in her Wed2B gown with plunging neckline and a ravishingly refined makeup and updo combo. 

Geometric Love

In terms of styling, Jake and Emeliene enlisted the help of The Finishing Touch Company to create a geometric, modern theme – from the terrarium and hurricane vase table centrepieces to the beautiful bouquets. 

PHOTOGRAPHER LOVE:

Capturing this creative essence and the whole flow of the day was Ross from North East-based RGM Photo, a mainstay of our Supplier Guest List community and a real master at what he does. Photographing happiness in a rich, emotive and modern way.

EMELIENE, THE BRIDE

Q: Presuming you’ll have a honeymoon once travel restrictions are lifted, where will you go? 

 

We enjoyed a lovely mini moon right after the wedding, we spent 3 days at Rudding Park relaxing and reminiscing. If all goes to plan we will be enjoying a trip to Canada in January, we both love skiing/snowboarding so have booked a trip to Vancouver/ Whistler for our bucket list honeymoon.
