I felt very excited and nervous, just waiting to find THE DRESS!
The girls at Y.A.P Bridal Boutique are so welcoming and make you feel at ease straight away. Most of my appointments were with Danni who was utterly amazing with helping through the whole journey up until my wedding.
In my mind I was looking for a fishtail gown with lace detail, but at the same time open to try other styles.
Danni, what I can I say, you were truly lovely from the moment I met you, and on those days I came to my appointment alone you made me feel like I had a friend there for support. I would, and have recommended Y.A.P to everyone I know who plans on getting married in the near future. Thank you for everything.
It was brilliant, after the consultation Danni picked out a few different dresses to try on as well as one that was different, just in case.
I don’t know how to explain it but you just know, everything else I tried on was compared to it and nothing came even close. When my size arrived and I tried it on for the first time I felt overwhelmed with happiness and joy....... I felt like a princess.
Tell us more about your day...
• ACCESSORIES •
My veil was from Y.A.P - a long delicate, double layer with a little sparkle that was picked out by Danni, I loved it and it didn’t hide any of the detail from my dress.
My shoes were also amazing, bespoke, unique, and hand custom painted by the very talented Sonia - Le Soulier, making them individual and so very special.
• FEELINGS •
I felt so happy..... and nervous I must say but walking down the aisle with my grandad, in my dress he paid for was a very special moment that I will always treasure.
• VENUE •
Our wedding was held at Newton Hall, Northumberland.
Newton Hall itself is a luxurious, quirky venue, so 'US', we love the old Georgian building being revamped and bold with so much character. Beautiful place for an amazing day.
• DETAILS •
Purple, and this was easy as its our favourite colour. Theme was vintage and a little rustic, as newton hall tables are fabulous wooden tables that only needed a purple runner in my opinion for a pop of colour.
• SUPPLIERS •
Newton Hall - Amazing team with a spectacular venue. From the moment I got in touch about the venue to weeks after the wedding on asking how married life is, this team deserve an award! Massive Thank you to Ian who was our master of ceremonies, Dan couldn’t praise you more.
Y.A.P Bridal Boutique - Every bride should see these girls, I was excited for every appointment and fitting I had. And a little upset when seeing them for the last fitting. Danni you’re a star.
Scott Spock Photography - These guys have created what we have now to show off our amazing day! Our images made me speechless and brought tears of joy to my eyes. Words cant explain how truly grateful we are to have met such a unique, creative, loving couple, so very professional but yet so much fun! Thank You Scott & Korinne xxx
Le Soulier - Shoes. We never met and only spoke via email but Sonia made me feel special, wanting to know all the details about my wedding and her ideas for my shoes, which included a little picture of our boy Buddy (our dog, haha) who attended the ceremony.
Simply Bows & Chair Covers (Northumberland - Debbie) - Debbie was fantastic helping me find the right colours and styles I wanted, such a friendly and welcoming lady.
Coco Luminaire & Snaparazzi Photobooths- AMORE lights and photobooth, these guys were great and having the photobooth album the next day to take home and look at was amazing.
Rachael Lovell (Wedding Cake) - Rachael was a friend from school that I got in touch with as I had heard only great things about her cakes............... What I wanted was not easy but I had no worries leaving it in Rachael's hands, such a creative and talented young lady.
Lavender Blue Florists - Wonderful beautiful flowers. Christine helped me to create exactly what I wanted for the day, also supplying me with herbs for my table plan and centre pieces.
And for the rest was myself :-) Stationary, decorations, wine glass charms for the table names, books and jugs for centre pieces, I wanted everything to be as personal as possible. Actually how could I forget my great aunty, and grandpops who made over 60 bomboniere's, these are traditional Italian wedding favours. My great aunty came over from Italy 6 weeks before the wedding and asked if she could have the honour of creating them for me, to that my granda had no choice in helping her, haha.
All in all I couldn’t have asked for a more truly, amazing, memorable day that holds a very special place in my heart. Massive thank you to everyone who was involved as we couldn’t have done it without you!
Inspirational and an absolutely beautiful journey... Thank you so much Krin for sharing your special memories! Huge thanks to the talented duo at Scott Spock Photography the images are incredible xxx
Lots of love your Y.A.P Team xxx
