REAL WEDDING

FIVE POSTPONEMENTS, A TOM FORD TUX AND BEAUTIFUL BRINKBURN

Hosted at the infamous venue that is Brinkburn in the Northumberland countryside, this terrific tale between Vanessa and Glenn was told so picture-perfectly by none other than the bride's brother-in-law, Harry Baldwin who is behind M.I.N.E Photography – the NE based snapper on our Supplier Guest List.

As a lot of modern romances, Vanessa and Glenn’s story began with a night out – it was Glenn’s 30th in Newcastle, Vanessa sang happy birthday to him and they exchanged numbers. Six months later the pair enjoyed a romantic first date at Durham Lumiere light festival, setting off a spark which continued to shine until Glenn finally popped the question on a late Sunday stroll beneath the stars in their beloved local town of Alnmouth, Northumberland.

While their dream day at Brinkburn (check out this incredible venue's Guest List profile!) seemed plain sailing, the planning process was torridly tough for Vanessa and Glenn who were forced to cancel their wedding FIVE times amidst changing lockdown rules.

 WHEN OUR DATE GOT CANCELLED FOR THE THIRD TIME WE WERE SO DISHEARTENED AND RELUCTANT TO CARRY ON WITH THE PLANNING PROCESS. BUT, WE REMAINED POSITIVE AND I’M SO GLAD WE DID.

OUR DREAM DAY FINALLY ARRIVED AND IT WAS EVERYTHING AND MORE

VANESSA, THE BRIDE.

Beautiful Brinkburn

Ever considered booking your venue before even going inside? Probably not, but when it looks as good as Brinkburn, that sort of spontaneity is understandable.Dressed in neutral tones with white hydrangeas, dusty pinks and soft blush blooms, and floating candles, the fairytale the couple had hoped and dreamed for was finally here – and boy, was it worth the wait.

WE DROVE DOWN THE TRACK AND IMMEDIATELY FELL IN LOVE WITH THE PRIORY AND SCENERY. IT WAS MAGICAL. WE JUST LOOKED AT EACHOTHER AND KNEW, THIS WAS THE VENUE FOR US. 

VANESSA, THE BRIDE.

Isn’t She Lovely 

Have you ever seen a more magazine-worthy bride? Soft glam and a subtle low bun paired with understated yet elegant details and family heirlooms created a magical look fit for a princess.

GET THE LUXE:

Vanessa wowed in a Wed2Be gown and sensational crown from Caped and Crowned. But perhaps the most sensational parts of her outfit were the looks you can't get. Her veil was her something borrowed from Glenn’s sister, while the delicate heart necklace was Glenn's grandmother’s.

Q: How did you feel as you walked down the aisle?

"EXCITED YET CALM, ECSTATIC AND OVERCOME WITH EMOTION."

Q: Funniest memory from the day?

"DURING GLENN’S SPEECH OUR THREE-YEAR-OLD NEICE KEPT LAUGHING LOUDLY. ONE GUEST SHOUTED “HOW MUCH ARE YOU PAYING HER?”

Q: Honeymoon destination?

 

"POSITANO. IT'S OUR FAVOURITE PLACE IN THE WORLD."
