Pretty pastels, party poses and a pop of purple make for a beautiful English Countryside wedding with a vintage spin.
Good morning all!
We are fabulously excited and very privileged to have the gorgeous wedding of Mr and Mrs Corcoran grace our pages today! A huge congratulations and thank you to you both, for sharing this with us! When Jess and David got in touch with us I knew this was going to be special and I wasn’t wrong! The day was effortlessly captured by the fabulously talented Jade from GASP Photography and if pictures could speak – beautiful, fun and emotional would be the watch words!
The wedding of Jessica and David took place at the quaint St Andrew’s Church in Ingleby Greenhow 24th August 2013, with the reception at The Buck Inn at Chop Gate.
“Our engagement was by no means a romantic spectacle but it was spontaneous and unexpected- completely us. David literally decided a couple of days before that he was going to propose. He popped the question on my Birthday, it was about 5.30 am. It was very surreal! We were up early as he had to go to work, he proposed- I said yes (I think… It was very early!) then he went to work and I was left sitting bemused and giddy waiting for the rest of the world to wake up before I could tell anybody! There was about 16 months between getting engaged and married. We decided early on we didn’t want a long engagement but I loved every minute of being a fiancée!”
“We chose to get married at St Andrew’s church at Ingleby Greenhow as it is where I was brought up and christened as a child. The church is picturesque and quirky- everything we wanted for our wedding. We wanted a venue where close family could stay afterwards and that wasn’t too far to travel from the church, The Buck Inn was perfect and fit our English country wedding theme amazingly. We knew it was the right venue when we first visited and with each visit we fell more in love with it and the owners Helen and Wolfgang were fab! They were so relaxed and laid back, just like us, yet they went above and beyond to make our day perfect.”
“On the morning of the wedding I was so relaxed but excited! Everybody kept asking if I was nervous but nerves were the last thing on my mind. I stayed at The Buck Inn the night before the wedding and I remember just wandering round the venue and marquee on the morning taking in every detail. I was so relaxed that I saw the wedding cars pull up outside and was like ‘huh, maybe I should put my dress on!’ Luckily for me I had my wonderful mum and cousin there shouting things like ‘Perfume!’ and ‘Bouquet!’ to keep me on track“
“My lovely cousin Stacey is a beautician and did my make up on the morning- she was a god send! My bridesmaids are all very handy and knew exactly how they wanted their hair so they felt comfy and all agreed to do it themselves, so my mum and I went to Morgan’s in Stokesley to get ours done. I loved my hair, the French pleat complemented my dress so well and Chloe was fantastic!”
“Our first dance was ‘A Thousand Years’ by Christina Perri. It is played at the end of the last twilight film and we knew in the cinema it was ‘The One'”
“Our theme was English country wedding with lots of vintage twists. I had a Vivien of Holloway 50s style dress and David had steampunk style cuff links, watch and tie pin. We sourced everything ourselves from the vintage china and crockery to our Vintage typewriter guest book. I scoured Facebook for small businesses to make us individual touches and we roped in family to help us make bunting and cake stands. With the help of my step dad we made a photobooth wall to keep guests entertained and David had scalpel finger (actual medical term!) for weeks after making all the moustaches on sticks! I loved the whole planning process I had images in my head of everything I wanted and it was even more amazing seeing it all come together”
We absolutely loved loved loved all the personal touches they had created from their own DIY photo booth to the horse shoe signage and their frame of loved ones to be remembered. Join us further as we take you through their very own beautiful day!
“One of my favourite moments of the day was in the hairdressers on the morning a big bouquet of flowers was delivered to me from David, the card read ‘see you at noon, love me’. Everybody in the hairdressers started welling up it was so cute! David says his favourite moment was looking down at me after his speech and seeing the smile on my face and tears in my eyes- he’s a sweetie! I loved every moment of the day, I feel like I will burst with happiness when I tell people about it!”
“We stayed an extra night at The Buck Inn when all the guests had gone it was so peaceful. Then we went to London for a few days. We have booked a belated honeymoon for October this year and we can’t wait!”
