There are no rules when it comes to weddings – and no one ever said a ‘theme’ was obligatory… so when I heard Ashleigh’s words that there wasn’t any theme to their day other than ‘wedding’, I smiled. It makes a lot of sense.

Falcon Manor is a gorgeous country house venue, set in the Yorkshire Dales and with a stylish and sophisticated atmosphere. It suits weddings and needs little extra decoration – although Ashleigh and her Mum worked together to arrange flowers from a local garden centre, and the boys did an amazing job of decorating the wedding cake (we have photos! It’s fab!)

Images are by DJ Archer Photography who are based in Lancashire.  Do have a look at their website if you’re looking for photographers in the North West – they photograph weddings in Lancashire, Yorkshire and Cumbria.

Nicola and Liam met – officially! – on a trip to Paris and tied the knot 10 years later in Manchester’s Castlefield Rooms. I love the venue they’ve chosen… chic and central, brilliant for guests to travel to and in my favourite English city. Their day is lovely, and the images from Paul Joseph Photography are the perfect complement for their city wedding – capturing the style and atmosphere of their day so wonderfully well.

Nicola told me their day had a slightly rustic English summer party theme. The venue was decorated with bunting and poms, and she arrived in style in a gorgeous campervan – which would always turn heads in the centre of Manchester!

As well as the gorgeous couple and fabulous images, there’s advice for you today: Nicola told me they enjoyed making things themselves – bunting, stationery and so on – but that it can get stressful closer to the wedding. There’s always a balance to be found between budgeting and time-saving, so do think carefully before you decide to DIY! Having said that… it all looks so beautiful!
