Real Yorkshire Wedding: Katy & Adam

Katy and Adam’s wedding ceremony at The Deep has definitely got the ‘wow’ factor!

The Wakefield couple’s paths crossed at a summer play scheme when they were just 8 years old! But they didn’t get to know each other until they were in their late teens and ended up at the same high school.

Adam popped the question when they were just 21!  Fast forward seven years and they made it official with an alternative wedding celebrated with around 45 of their closest family and friends.

Here’s what Katy had to say:

Our wedding day was quite simply the best day of my life!

The Venue

We choose The Deep as it was unique and something completely different. We did visit other venues but we felt no other venue could compare to it.

The Planning
I was totally relaxed about planning the day. Luckily; I have a very organised ‘Mama’ who got stuck in and sorted pretty much everything out!

The Preparation
We did everything ourselves more or less  – from favours to wedding flowers. I had a piece of lace from my mums’ wedding dress holding my flowers together and she read a story at our service instead of a traditional reading/poem. Mama made all our cakes and cupcakes and my bridesmaids Leigh & Kara did mine and my other bridesmaids hair and make-up.

The Dress
I only visited one wedding dress shop – I didn’t need to visit any others. I went in with an open mind and chose a gown with lace t-shirt sleeves, an embroidered v neck line and I had my dress customised with sparkly-pearl belt.

The Bridal Look
I wanted to look like ‘me’ – very natural make-up and pretty hair which my best friend Leigh did for me.

The Food
We had Fish and Chips served in cones at The Deep followed by an evening BBQ at Weetwood Hall. We hired a coach for everybody to travel too and from The Deep. It was a very relaxed day – very informal.

Words of Wisdom

Do whatever the hell you want to do! Don’t feel pressurized to please everybody or to conform to the pressures of society. It is your day – make sure you are happy first!
