REAL WEDDING

Read the romance

Photographed by our beloved Guest List photographer Edward Ashley, this real wedding is serving all the good positive vibes needed as we head into the winter months. Smiles, jokes, traffic cones – all the essentials, you know, captured in perfect flow by the masterful Ed. 

Steph and Dan first locked eyes at university where they were both studying drama. With Dan working on his final show and Steph helping as stage manager, their screenplay story played out in epic fashion – with a first date followed by a whirlwind romance and then a proposal along the coast of Sorrento. How very Romeo.  

 

 

Their dream day was hosted at the iconic Beamish Hall in Northumberland, a huge imposing manor house with gorgeous grounds, sensational wedding spaces and exclusive use weddings. Erring on the side of tradition Steph and Dan decided to dress their day with classical whites and creams, with ivy-wrapped pillars and fairylights aplenty, keeping the tone simplistic yet sumptuously stylish and romantic.

 I WANTED A VERY TRADITIONAL, LUXURY LOOK AND FEEL FOR OUR WEDDING. 

STEPH, THE BRIDE

Following a fabulous ceremony at St Pauls Church in nearby Hunwick, the party made the journey 30 minutes north to Beamish Hall to really get the celebrations underway in the beautiful draped-ceiling, pillar-filled Winter Garden Room. 

Steph and Dan enjoyed a decadent wedding breakfast before day turned to night and The Maverick Rejects band played a string of classic wedding shape-shifters, making room for some iconic dance floor snaps.

CONE FIRST:

ON DANIEL’S STAG HE CARRIED AROUND A CONE THINKING HE WAS FUNNY. OUR BEST MAN HAD MANAGED TO BRING SAID CONE INTO THE WEDDING, AND PRODUCED IT DURING HIS SPEECH. IT ALSO MADE AN APPEARANCE ON THE DANCE FLOOR LATER ON!

Photographer Love

From the late night dance floor forays to the dreamy couple portraits in Beamish’s beautiful gardens, Edward Ashley captured this duo’s love story perfectly. Having met Ed at a local wedding fair, Steph and Dan knew right away he was the right guy for them.

HE WAS SO APPROACHABLE AND CAPTURED THOSE ‘IN THE MOMENT’ PHOTOS MAGNIFICENTLY.

First Dance Notes: Endless Love, Luther Vandross and Mariah Carey

What’s clear to see from this day is the unbridled emotion from everyone in attendance. After the past 18 months we are overjoyed to see rooms in local venues filled with laughs and love. Steph and Dan gathered their guests with a real romantic celebration and a late night party to match. Bravo.
