Today we’re sharing the West Yorkshire wedding of Liz and Ed, who got married in October 2016. The happy couple met in Australia, where Liz comes from and where Ed was working on a year long visa. Liz explains, “We lived together for around 6 months before he had to return to the UK and we weren’t sure what our next step would be. Ed organised for me to fly to the UK for a six-week holiday and while I was visiting I fell pregnant with our eldest child Oliver. That’s when we decided to just take the leap and I moved over to the UK officially when I was 20 weeks pregnant. Since then, we’ve got our own house, had another baby, a little girl called Millie, and the rest is history!”

Liz wore a Phillipa Grace dress with a hairpiece by Amanda Wyatt, both from Elenor Rose Bridal Boutique in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire. Says Liz, ‘I’d originally wanted something fitted with sleeves and walked out with the total opposite! As soon as I tried the dress on I felt like a proper bride. It really is true what they say, you’ll know when you’ve found the right one!”
“We ended up going for a very neutral colour theme of white, light grey and blush pink touches.”, says Liz. “I had originally wanted something more pastel/rustic, but after finding my dress the colour scheme seemed to change to match.”The usher’s suits were from Young’s Formal Hirewear and complimented beautifully with the pale grey tone of the bridesmaid’s multiway dresses by Victoria Lou Bridal.The cream roses on the wedding cake by White Rose Cake Design, Honley. were a perfect match to the flowers in the bouquets and buttonholes, created by Finishing Touches Florist, Huddersfield.
The ceremony and reception were both held at Casa in Brighouse. “How bright and light it was is what made me first fall in love with it.”, says Liz. “It’s also the most beautiful venue once the sun has set and all the candles are lit and the fairy lights are on.
“I cannot thank our wedding coordinators Antonia and Chantelle enough! They went above and beyond to ensure that our day was perfect and the way that they styled the venue took my breath away. We were let down massively on the day by some entertainment that we had organised, and the girls made sure we never worried about it once and sorted out a replacement for us. Our wedding just wouldn’t have been as perfect as it was without their help.”
“My favourite part of the day was the speeches! It was so lovely to hear the beautiful words that our nearest and dearest had prepared for us, and afterwards, when everyone had relaxed, the party really started!”
