An elegant and classical Ansty Hall wedding

Here’s an elegant and classical wedding blog for those of you who don’t want a ‘theme’. Haylee and Michael kept their Ansty Hall wedding simple with the beauty of the day coming from the occasion itself.

With ivory roses and little birdcage details to decorate tables, the result is a relaxed and unfussy wedding celebration. I think it’s richer for having no ‘fluff’ to detract from the romance and sincerity of getting married.

The images are by Derby wedding photographer Chris Seddon, and Haylee and Michael have been kind enough to share their best wedding moments with us as well. I think this is a wedding to browse slowly with a lovely cuppa… it’s beautiful. Enjoy. Claire x

Who proposed, and how?

Michael proposed by setting up a treasure hunt. He placed clues which led Haylee to all her friends and family till eventually it led her back home where Michael had cooked her favourite meal and lit the place with candles… He proposed over pudding 🙂

Wedding venue: Collycroft Methodist Church and the Ansty Hall

Wedding photographer: Chris Seddon

How would you describe your wedding style? Classical and romantic

Ansty Hall wedding reception

What were your highlights?

Haylee’s: Sharing the whole day with friends and family we love

Michael’s: My surprise firework display and having all our friends and family in one place for a day.

Venue styling and details

We didn’t really have a theme so just tried to be very classical. We decorated the place with candelabras and bird cages.

Music and entertainment: We hired a Michael Buble tribute who later provided the disco

What did you wear?

Michael wore the traditional black tail coat with a ivory waist coat and cravat.

Haylee wore an Ivory A-line dress by Ella Bridals

Memorable moments

Haylee’s: Michael’s face when the fireworks went off (he had no idea they were happening- It was my wedding present to him)

Michael’s: Seeing Haylee for the first time. She looked so beautiful – and how very nervous it suddenly made me. Also how nice everything turned out (even the weather was perfect) and seeing how happy everyone was for us.

Wedding day advice

Plan plenty in advance and enjoy your day. It goes by so fast so make sure you try and take everything in and relax.

    Congratulations to Haylee and Michael ! Your photographer has captured some truely beautiful and natural moments. It is refreshing to see a natural wedding posted to a blog. When a wedding is themed it can appear very contrived and whilst it may make for some crazy and off the wall images, often the true meaning of the day doesn’t shine through in the images. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy all weddings whether themed or not, but the ones that choke me up and bring a tear to my eye are usually the ones where as you say Claire the romance and sincerity are not obscured by ‘fluff’. Haylee and Michael, your wedding pictures will stand the test of time. I wish you a very happy life together. 🙂 Sonja x

  • Do you have 5 minutes to read something really romantic? The story of @durhamroseuk  is wonderful: a prospective groom with an idea for the perfect engagement ring, who had to search far and wide and eventually design his own! After quite an adventure in the making, she said yes, they married... and the UK's leading bespoke engagement ring supplier was born! There's a little more to it, including the Dragons Den bit - but you can read all about that on the blog! For now, I'm in LOVE with this pendant Durham Rose created to match one of their bespoke rings.
