Sarah and Jamie had a summer wedding that they called “Retro with bright colours and lots of food!” The inspiration for the theme came from their love of food, art and music, most of that was supplied by family members because they wanted to keep the budget low. Plus food made out of love for the day is always going to add a something that is special right?
The couple married at Hull Guildhall, together with the reception at music place warehouse, Früit. The bride said, “By the start of our wedding planning, the place was always going to be our main priority, and we’ve always known that we wanted it to be kept at Früit. We chose on a date that they had the rest . We believed that the relaxed décor (along with the amazingly lovely venue manager, Chris), was ideal for us to add pieces to and make it our own. Because it was, as we loved the place, we kept things simple. The ceiling was decorated with paper lanterns and fairy lights. The table ornaments consisted of hessian fabric and glass bottles and jars collected from family and friends, into which we put wild flowers from Bloom & Wild. The blossoms came with crazy mini pineapples!”
Jamie stated of the wedding itself, “The ceremony being at the register office seemed to be within a flash; we both were overly excited for its reception. Sarah walked down the aisle to Anyone Else Can You From The Moldy Peaches. She had worried giggles all the way through the ceremony as she is somewhat shy!”
The bride wore an abysmal flutter sleeve maxi apparel from ASOS, a headband by Olivia The Wolf along with Vivienne Westwood Anglomania + Melissa Skyscraper II heels. Her sister-in-law Selina Scott, hairdresser at Alexander Hair and Beauty, did her own hair and make-up. The groom wore a Vivienne Westwood two-piece blue match, Ted Baker shirt, Ted Baker paisley Chelsea boots and silk paisley cravat. Sarah’s bridesmaid, Selina, wore an improved gold maxi apparel from Boohoo. “We wanted her to select her own apparel so she felt comfortable and beautiful inside”. She explained.
“For your wedding breakfast, we all wanted to keep things relaxed and informal so decided on our favorite foods and did a buffet.” This was arranged by Sarah’s mommy as a wedding present. Sarah’s Aunty Lynn baked distinct flavoured tray bakes and biscuits, and the wedding cake was, created by Vicki, Sarah’s cousin. For the evening, they moved with a hog roast van.
The wedding budget came in at below #6000, and a lot of this was right down to the few lots of these details themselves. The bride designed the stationery, saying “We went to get a vinyl record music themed invitation, and also our save the dates were small vinyl record refrigerator magnets for our visitors to keep.” Jamie and his buddies DJ’d for its entertainment, Sarah’s Aunty Julie hands created the tassel garland, and as mentioned, family members managed hair, make-up, and most of the food.”
The biggest cost for the couple was the pictures and videography. “As we both work from the wedding industry since videographers we know how important it’s to not compromise on this portion of wedding planning. All these are the things that you have to continue for a long time to come, which they’re worth every cent. We loved everything Sally captured, and her approach is relaxed and enjoyable. And we are huge fans of The Cine Collective; their portfolio is amazing, and we thus are eager to view the movie.”
Jamie stated it was watching Sarah walk down the aisle and then getting over the speeches! Sarah said that it was “Walking down the aisle with my father and visiting Jamie waiting there.”
The couple said the entire adventure of preparing their wedding was astounding, but “Your spare room becomes a wedding storage room, also Sarah accidentally threw off the confetti, therefore we had to fear buy on the afternoon of their wedding!” They included also that they wish so the afternoon lasted somewhat 22, they’d ordered the ceremony for a previous time.
As far as information goes for couples, Sarah and Jamie said, “Your day goes so fast, so don’t be concerned about the small details, and revel in the moment with your friends and family.”
