Mark and Nia tied the knot last July and to say the run up to their yorkshire wedding was hectic would be somewhat of an understatement!

Not only did they move house the same month but also welcomed their second beautiful baby, set up a business and then got married!

Here’s what Mark had to say about their Yorkshire Wedding:

The actual day was a blur, whilst taking in the big occasion and mingling with friends and family we also had our two beauties keeping us occupied, add to this a few glasses of champagne and you have a great recipe for a memorable day and we wouldn’t have had it any other way.

The Venue

We wanted our day to be as relaxed and special as possible. We had originally planned to get married in Florence but it was all too much so we chose  The Principle York Hotel to tie the knot.

We both love York, the history, quirky streets and shops and couldn’t think of a better place to carry on our memories.

We fell in love with the grandness of the hotel itself and the beautiful decor.

The Styling

This was definitely all Nia’s doing….I stayed well clear, although she did give me one job that was to get the ties…naturally I forgot and the pair of us were running through the streets of York the evening before our big day.

I have to say she did an amazing job, whilst juggling a 18 month old, pregnant and all the other crazy things we were doing she managed to create a beautiful wedding. knowing her as I do the inspiration was definitely sparkle and glam, but all done quite subtly. She is like a magpie and cant resist anything that sparkles.

The colour scheme was midnight blue and rose gold, the flowers were kept quite neutral,and looked beautiful against the deep blue of the bridesmaids and copper fairy light tied it all together.
