Katie & James were married at, the stunning, Middleton Lodge and had a marquee reception in the grounds there on 1st June 2013. They had planned to have their service outside and prayed for lovely weather. This definitely paid off as the sun was shining and the skies were blue.
When we arrived, there was a flurry of activity as Katie had her hair styled by Charlotte at Elite and make-up by Make-Up By Jo. Katie wore a dress in a beautiful stone colour, shoes and headdress from Happily Ever After and looked stunning and her bridesmaids wore mint green dresses from Light in the Box. Each had bouquets in cream and green colours by Briar House Flowers which tied in wonderfully with the colour of the bridesmaids dresses, the outdoor theme of the wedding and also the decor inside Middleton Lodge.
Meanwhile, the groom, best man and ushers were looking very smart in their suits from Affleck and Moffat with mint green cravats to match the bridesmaid’s dresses. Even James’ van was decorated for the occasion! James owns JEC Electrics a great, local business that strive for satisfaction, highly recommended for electrical installation and maintenance!
Before long it was time for the service in Middleton Lodge’s beautiful new outside area. Everyone had a huge smile on their faces as they watched the ceremony and listened to the readings by Rachel Johnson, Victoria Clark and David Clark (James’ Dad) and, no doubt, everyone enjoyed the beautiful sunshine.
After the service the happy couple enjoyed drinks on the lawn with their guests before venturing around Middleton Lodge’s stunning grounds and even taking the opportunity to get a picture with the JEC Electrics van!
The marquee was beautifully decorated with flowers, again by Briar House Flowers and wonderful cake by a family friend Jessamey Leahey of Harrogate.
Katie and James were eager to have their speeches and first dance photographed which we did and had such a giggle at the same time! Everyone was entertained by jazz band Ian Bosworth and Friends and enjoyed a dance after a few Shandy’s!!
Katie and James had a wonderful honeymoon with trail finders, driving around California and Nevada – a truly once in a lifetime experience!
