When Kate and Kieran first got in touch about their wedding, I was so excited. Kate described their Manchester Pub wedding as, low-key, relaxed and fun, which is right up my street! Their venue, The Belmore, is a STUNNING newly-refurbished pub in Sale in Manchester, was perfect for a good northern knees-up. With its botanical inspired, quirky decor, and relaxed atmosphere, it was the perfect backdrop for their fun, relaxed day. I absolutely loved the hanging plants, tiled floor and mis-matched furniture. So cool!
Kate and Kieran got married ten years to the day since they first got together, and had a gorgeous romantic day with family and close friends. Their lovely daughter was their flower girl, and with baby number two due shortly, the whole day was a gorgeous celebration of their lovely family. Their lovely, personal ceremony was filled with love and happy tears, and their guests absolutely beamed with happiness throughout- it was an absolute pleasure to witness. One of my favourite moments was the confetti- all the guests were VERY enthusiastic, and really got involved- thankfully the bride and groom found the barrage hilarious!
Kate loved the idea of a vintage style wedding, which shone through in her hand-crafted table plan and place cards, and the bride looked stunning in a vintage style dress by Scarlett & Jo, with retro-styled hair and make-up by the fabulous Ta-Dah Hair & Make-Up. I loved the colourful sunflowers in the bouquets and buttonholes too, and the couple carried the sunflower theme through into their favours, giving their guests the cutest little packets of sunflowers seeds. I loved the way the children were involved in every part of the wedding, with their own personalised gifts as favours, and bubbles, which kept them entertained for hours!
The fab pub venue was perfect for getting creative with portraits, and fortunately Kate and Kieran were willing to go along with my mad ideas! I absolutely loved having fun with the quirky features of the pub. All of the guests were great fun too, especially the kids, who were the best fun! I even found myself teaching them french knitting at one point! You never quite know how a wedding day will end up, eh?
The whole day was an amazingly fun, relaxed start to 2019 weddings and I loved every minute. Thank you so much for having me Kate and Kieran! Enjoy your preview!
