Dearest lovely readers, I hope today’s wedding blog will make you as happy as it does me! This has everything… urban, rustic, bakey and bright, with beautiful images (Photography by Kathryn), fabulous floral arrangements (Katie Laura Flowers) and even a dash of calligraphy (Calligraphy for Weddings). Oh! And mouthwateringly pretty cakes, bakes and pies (Cobble Kitchen) ūüôā

Spring weddings tend to feature lots of soft pastels and mix the most delicate yellows with similar shades. Today we’re stirring things up a little with bright, exciting spring florals with a real creative twist. Imagine this style at your wedding venue… because I think the genius girls behind it have come up with an ultra versatile look which will suit pretty much anywhere, don’t you?

A rustic theme meets the urban setting of the derelict mill with a fresh, but warm, spring colour palette of golden yellows, soft whites, textures, and a pared back feel to compliment the surroundings. With rustic cakes and bakes, Cobble Kitchen baked up an array of delicious platters of brownies, meringues, coffee cake, orange cake and a show-stopper tower of a cream cake!

Dalton Mills was once the largest textile mill in the region employing around 2,000 people, built in 1869 and replacing the original mill which was under female ownership in the 1780s. It’s now partly renovated with businesses occupying the Clock Tower while the remaining part of the Mill is undergoing extensive renovation – still what you might call derelict. Kathryn (Photography by Kathryn) spotted Dalton Mills as a potential shoot location full of mood & character and introduced a team of Yorkshire-based business women to this unusual setting, who were excited to work together and create a less than ordinary creative wedding shoot!

The beautifully designed & hand-crafted stationery in rustic looking kraft papers ideally compliments the feel of the shoot. See more: Calligraphy-for-Weddings.com

The images were shot with the available natural light of the mill setting. Our models were a real couple.

  • 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.
