Last month I was back at a favourite venue of mine; Whirlowbrook Hall in Sheffield. Thea and Neil had a D.I.Y edge to their big day and put so much effort into making sure every detail was just how they'd imagined.
Neil received a very sentimental gift from Thea on the morning of the wedding, given to him via her father - some cufflinks to wear on the day with images of two loved ones who couldn't be there. Understandably this was a very emotional and touching moment for the guests, as well as between Neil and his new Father-in-Law.
Thea and her bridal party were busy getting ready upstairs with the help of their make-up artist Ruby Mccrudden and hair stylist Hollie to give them their glamorous looks for the day. Their high heeled shoes all sat in a neat row by the door while they whizzed around the room helping eachother get ready and also look after Thea and Neil's four legged baby boy Rusty!
There were lovely soft purple hues in the bridesmaids dresses and in the flowers by Charlotte which were beautifully arranged throughout the venue. Rusty wore a purple tartan bowtie which perfectly matched the Father of the Bride's kilt.
The ceremony was held in Whirlowbrook's Oak room, the guests enjoyed music by a String Duo whilst watching the bridal parties entrance. There were a few tears during the ceremony (Neil's reaction when he saw Thea was heart-warming) along with lots of laughter.
After the ceremony we headed into the gardens for drinks, confetti, bouquet throwing and other fun! The gardens looked lovely and we managed to grab some images with the last of the years bluebells! Later after enjoying the wedding breakfast it was time for speeches - Neil had two best men which means double the fun!
Thea and Neil decided that they wanted to have a little bit of a twist during their first dance so after faking a little bust up during their romantic slow song, they went into a Pulp Fiction-esaue dance along with their guests and some of the Whirlowbrook staff!
