We are thrilled to be able to share with you some beautiful photos in another of our real wedding stories. Today we bring you the vintage English country garden wedding of Sally and Greg who both live in London. The couple who met in 2004 and got engaged on the picturesque Greek island of Crete share their special day with us which took place at Black Swan in Helmsley.
Sally: We wanted a relaxed ceremony with hints of vintage, country garden styling and fashions fron the 50’s. We decided on Black Swan at a wedding show in York. We instantly fell in love with it, it was perfect for the relaxed ceremony we wanted and had a friendly country pub feel about it which we really liked.
The beautiful bride opted for a gown from Fur Coat No Knickers who specialise in 1950s to 1960s dresses to suit your own personality and chose Lush and Lang to create their perfect vintage flower arrangements which were paired with rustic glass bottles.
The ceremony was my favourite part of the day, we were nervous but the service was so light hearted that it relaxed us into the rest of the day.
With groom Greg being a big football fan, it meant that it played a part in the couple’s big day and there was even a recurring football theme throughout the speeches – much of it directed at Greg’s skills on and off the pitch!
