Congrats to Simply Bows and Chair Covers' Real Bride Lyndsey and her new husband Chris, who got married at one of our favourite venues - Wynyard Hall. We adored Lyndsey's fun and quirky wedding style and wanted to share it with you!
Chris and I are both from the same home town Sunderland. Two years ago we decided to make the move to the other side of the world and now live in Sydney, Australia. When Chris proposed on Christmas Day 2009 we both knew that in our hearts we wanted be married back at home in the North East with all our family and friends. Although Sydney is a beautiful place we really love the rich heritage and beautiful grand buildings the UK has to offer. When I first saw pictures of Wynyard Hall we knew instantly that it was the venue for us, just stunning.
Planning a wedding is never an easy task, but doing it over 10,000 miles away is even harder. We came back to UK 9 months before our wedding to meet with suppliers I had shortlisted online. We met with Lucinda from Simply Bows and Chair Covers and we instantly knew that we were in good hands. With lots of previous experience working with our Wynyard Hall we knew everything would be taken care of.
Lucinda made the distance really easy to manage with prompt email communication and took the pressure away by dealing direct with the venue. Lucinda had all the finishing touches from linen, charger plates, chair covers to fairy lights to make the venue look even more magical.
We chose a silver theme as we wanted something sophisticated and complimentary to the venue decor. Lucinda recommended some diamante brooches for our chair covers which added that finishing touch. We then carried the diamante theme through our wedding to add that glam touch.
We also wanted to have a bit of fun by incorporated an Australian theme to the day too.....
Chris and the ushers arrived in a fantastic 1965 splitscreen combi camper van from Lovedubcars whilst our guest favours were personalised silver flip flops for the ladies and an Australian beer and stubby cooler for the guys.
The day was just perfect and I would definitely recommend Lucinda and Simply Bows and Chair Covers to anybody getting married. The finishing touches really made a difference and I cannot thank her and the Simply team enough! A class act!
