After the digital romance began on a beach stroll, Angie never thought she’d meet Mr. Right on an online dating website, but as now Mrs Jackson, Angie has never been happier than she is with Paul.
The couple fell in love in York, spending the first few months of their relationship dating in the cobbled city, Angie and Paul’s wedding journey started after Paul proposed in York for a romantic city break.
Animal lover Angie had her heart set on a woodland wedding, featuring an owl ring bearer and marrying the love of her life in nature’s garden.
Knowing she wanted to marry at The Old Barn, based at The South Causey venue, Angie visited several times with fiancé and mother.
Gathering ideas for her special day, chatting with suppliers and planning for August, the couple watched their wedding day come together in front of their eyes.
Lucky enough to have two dresses at the nuptial, Angie found it incredibly easy to bag herself two incredible gowns.
The first dress Angie tried on was her evening gown. Knowing it wasn’t the dress she wanted to walk down the aisle in, Angie just couldn’t give up this magnificent dress. Thus, the night-time dress was born..
After scouring the internet for her fairytale ceremony dress, Angie fell in love with a dress called Poppy, by designer Morilee. When everything fell into place with sizes and ordering, Angie had her full day of attire arranged.
Staying in the Woodland theme, Angie and Paul decorated tables with blossom trees, woodland animals and wildflowers.
Plenty of woodland touches ran throughout the wedding, for an adorable, nature orientated vibe. It was exactly what the couple envisioned and The Old Barn was the perfect compliment to the well-thought-out theme.
Advice For Couples:
- Give yourself time to save for the wedding you want, I would hate to have regrets that I really wanted something but had to compromise. We deliberately gave ourselves nearly two years to save up so that we could get the day we wanted.
- Do your research; go to plenty of wedding fairs to get a feel for what suppliers are out there. You really do need a good photographer and videographer; the day goes incredibly fast no matter what you do, your photographs and films are ways of reliving the day all over again. Choose someone whose style you like and read plenty of reviews.
