Words by: Love Invited | Quotes by: Chloe (Bride)
Setting The Scene
Chloe & Bethany’s love story began after 6 years of friendship. Fast forward a little while and Chloe surprised Beth with a romantic picnic at The White Horse in Kilburn (a place sentimental to the couple), where she then popped the big question to an unsuspecting Beth (who of course, said Yes!).
A few years later and Bethany & Chloe tied the knot on 6th May 2018 at the gorgeous Rudding Park in Harrogate. The venue boasts 300 acres of landscaped gardens and woodland which set the tone perfectly for Chloe & Beth’s ‘Nature/Glam’ wedding.
Finding The Dresses
Both Chloe & Beth looked stunning in their floor-length bridal gown with lace detailing. They each found their dream dress after the first visit to The Wedding Lounge near Harrogate. Going on separate occasions, each with their Mum & Sister, they each found ‘the one’ after a fairly easy process.
“We were so proud to wear the dresses on our wedding day”
We love to hear the little details of a wedding, which is why we love finding out a couples something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue. Each item chosen meant something to the couple, but what we loved the most was Beth’s something Old & Blue which was her mum’s wedding pearls they handmade into a bracelet, of course with the addition of a few blue pearls in there.
A nature theme with a hint of glamour set the tone for their special day. Rose gold splashes contrasted beautifully with their handmade rustic decorations making it a truly beautiful event. The couple wanted to make sure their personalities shone through on the day and we think they did that perfectly.
“We are very proud of how our wedding turned out as it was exactly the wedding we dreamed of”
We were so happy that Chloe & Beth wanted us to help with their wedding stationery. They opted for our Hearts & Lanterns design on a brown kraft paper which fit in perfectly with the ‘rustic-glam’ theme with a colour scheme of whites and muted greens to portray a natural feel. We incorporated a horse into the design as a reference to Chloe & Beth’s engagement at the White Horse In Kilburn.
“We first met Amanda from Love Invited at the Manchester Wedding Show, we were looking for invitations at the time and her stall caught our eye. We felt a connection with her business and knew it would be the perfect one to do our invitations.”
Dominic and Zoe Wright from Dominic Wright Photography captured the big day beautifully.
“They are absolutely brilliant and have been so patient with the both of us. We were amazingly comfortable in their presence. Their work is outstanding”
Your Favourite Moment
“The whole day was very special to both of us, it is so hard to pick a favourite moment because we loved every second of it. We had a huge rush of happiness when we walked out of the chapel to a long path with our guests on both sides throwing confetti. That is memorable because it was a time when our loved ones were officially celebrating our marriage.”
Your One Piece Of Advice
“Your wedding day will feel like it has flown by so make sure to have a moment together to look around and be proud of the wedding you made. Most importantly, enjoy every second of it from start to finish, it really is the best day of your life.”
