By Paula

The crisp, bright blue skies outdoors and the inviting warmth of Northumberland’s beautiful Matfen Hall, with its sweeping staircase and prominent fireplace, promised Adam and Natalie the Winter wedding they’d always longed for.

The couple, whose relationship developed after becoming close friends at work, had a clear vision for their perfect day – with tweed suits, antique lace, muted vintage tones and touches of sparkle – and they fell in love with the historic country venue on first sight.

“We wanted our day to be as relaxed as possible but we also wanted to have it somewhere grand… a place where guests would have a day to remember. Matfen Hall gave us all that and more,” said Natalie. “It was the first place we visited and we fell in love straight away, with its incredible features and beautiful setting. The team went above and beyond to meet our needs; I couldn’t recommend Matfen more highly to other brides.”

No stranger to the venue, photographer Jamie McElderry captured the day effortlessly, while the kind November weather allowed for a variety of shots in Matfen’s stunning, extensive grounds. Natalie said: “Jamie was the photographer at my friend’s wedding and I absolutely loved those photos and his style. He came highly recommended and we’re delighted with the results.”

What they Wore:

Natalie found her dream dress at The Wedding Dress Company, in Corbridge, and praised the bridal boutique for its attention to detail: “The whole shopping experience was amazing. They were so helpful and ensured I tried on lots of styles to see what suited me and find my perfect dress.” She bought her glamourous bridesmaids’ dresses online at Asos.com, while groom Adam chose British country heritage brand Marc Darcy for his tweed suit, from stylish menswear store Master Debonair.

Natalie’s Advice:

“Planning a wedding is stressful, but exciting, so my best advice would be to always plan and book well in advance because the time goes by so fast and you need to enjoy every minute of it. Organisation is key – but try not to worry too much because everything comes together in the end and all that really matters is each other. My absolute highlight of the day was walking down the beautiful staircase, then the aisle and seeing each other for the first time. Nothing beat that feeling.”
