Set amidst idyllic parkland, this breath-taking venue, Lartington Hall, played home to the luxurious wedding of Hannah and Liam.
After meeting when they were just 13 years old, Hannah and Liam soon became childhood sweethearts. Their relationship blossomed in 2016, when Liam proposed on a family holiday in Hong Kong, overlooking the bright lights of the stunnning city.
The couple envisioned their wedding day as relaxed and natural looking, scattered with bursts of the colour lilac throughout.
‘Where wedding dreams are made.’ – Hannah
This aesthetically beautiful venue, bordering County Durham, boasts picturesque gardens, exquisite interiors and incomparable luxury.
When creating the perfect space for Hannah and Liam to design their dream wedding, Lartington Hall promised elegance, charm and endless opportunities on their big day.
“The whole of Lartington Hall is WOW – from the beautiful Chapel, the glamorous Ballroom, to all of the décor and final details.
When we visited Lartington Hall, we knew it was ‘the one’ there and then. Having the whole place to ourselves was a major hit for us and it made our weekend stay so personal. We cannot recommend Lartington Hall enough, it is outstanding!” – Hannah
The captivating Ballroom was fitted with crisp, white walls and rich golden colours adding character and opulence, while the rustic lanterns and hanging chandeliers created a sense of class and authenticity.
“Myself and my mam visited The Wedding Dress Company, as I had the designer Stella York in mind and they sold the biggest range of her dresses, local to me. I tried on all different styles from this designer and my mam said I looked amazing in every dress, but neither of us had a favourite.
The ladies in the shop told me they had a new Stella York dress delivered and I was welcome to be the first bride to try it. As soon as I tried it, I knew it was my dream dress – the boutique assistants said they had goose bumps and my mam burst out crying. I immediately said yes to my dress, it was meant to be!” – Hannah
More than just a designer label, Stella York creates gowns with every bride in mind. With a love for this particular designer, Hannah stepped out in a gorgeous Stella York gown, enhanced with intricate embellishments and lace applique, and The Wedding Dress Company provided, not only a wide range of the gowns from Stella York’s collection, but their personal touch made wedding dress shopping everything a bride could want it to be.
