DIY vintage wedding in Huddersfield 2018, with Stevie Jay Photography (10)

Becky and Dan’s beautiful Yorkshire wedding, with Stevie Jay Photography

Becky and Dan’s vintage DIY wedding is perfect, gloriously happy and colourful, and just seems so full of character and fun! Becky describes their day as “Completely DIY and disorganised! Perfect for us!” – and I love it. They tied the knot in church, then had afternoon tea in the scout hut next door and their evening reception was on the local bowling green! The gorgeous pics by Yorkshire wedding photographer Stevie Jay capture the spirit of their day brilliantly – what a fabulous, eclectic and fun couple! Congrats guys, you ROCK!

Wedding photographer’s website:

Stevie Jay Photography – www.steviejayphotography.co.uk

Stevie was recommended by a friend who is a professional photographer.

Stevie was amazing, we said it was like having a friend there from wedding prep to the evening do. The photos were incredible. I’m not the most confident with photos and I was anxious about seeing them but she captured our emotions perfectly.

The first time we saw our wedding photos we were sat on the sofa together with a bottle of bubbly and I cried!

Where did you find your suppliers? (Blogs, magazines, recommendations?)

recommendations and social media

What’s your top tip for saving money?

stop having take aways!!!

… and which elements of your wedding are you glad you spent more on?

The band and the marquee

Where did you buy or source your wedding stationery – or was making it a labour of love?

We made all our own stationery, my husband is a talented man!

Did you fall in love with your wedding dress?

Yes and also hated it at times but in the end I loved it!

Wedding dress designer and bridal boutique:

Mia Sposa boutique in Huddersfield designer Justin Alexander

Tell us about your accessories: jewellery, shoes and anything else!

shoes were from Monsoon, all our wedding jewellery came from Walkers in Huddersfield which is our favourite shop, the staff are incredible.

And what did the groom wear?

An amazing suit from Carl Stuart in Huddersfield, the staff became like friends.

Beautiful bridesmaids: what did your best girls wear?

My wonderful Mum in law made these, she is a seamstress and did an amazing job making my best friends look the part!

Hair and make-up – did you DIY or hire a professional?

Absolutely flawless, I had Oksana and she made me feel amazing

Describe your wedding flowers. Who arranged them for you? (florist details would be lovely please)

we arranged our own, we bought the flowers from Clems garden in Huddersfield, a lovely charity that helps lonely people in Huddersfield (see link at the end of the blog post)

General styling – did your venue need much decoration?

we decorated everything in wartime 1940’s themes with sandbags and wartime posters!

Crafts and makes – tell us about any homemade elements of your wedding… did you enjoy them?

My friend Alison crocheted beautiful vintage looking covers for jam and coffee jars and they looked wonderful.

The wedding cake: what kind of cake did you choose and why?

Our cake supplier let us down at the last minute and my Mum bought us one from M&S but I have to say it was delicious. My Step-Father’s sister in law decorated it for us and we loved it.

Entertainment: any musical recommendations, surprises or treats?

We had Sundown Swing, a swing band in Huddersfield and they don’t usually do weddings. We had them play Moonriver for our first dance and my husband arranged for them to play buffalo girl as a surprise. Best band ever!

Words of wisdom: share your best piece of advice for other couples:

All the stress leaves you the minute you get to the altar and see your other half so relax and enjoy!

What’s the best thing about being married?

knowing I can spend the rest of my life with my best friend.

  • Moments or details? LOVE this pic from @crislowisphotography which for me answers the question. Yeah, we love details and planning and the excitement of making a wedding beautiful. But afterwards, when only your photos and memories are left to remind you of your best day ever? It's the moments you'll fall in love with over and over again. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • Groom's view - the best things about marriage: "Looking at my ring finger every day to see the ring and what it means to us. Being able to introduce Rowena as my Wife as opposed to the girlfriend! Having the lady that I fell in love with at pretty much first glance now being my wife. Coming home after work and just talking to one another spending time as a three with our 3 and a half year old daughter."⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
