A PRETTY SPRING WEDDING AT NEWTON HALL – KIRSTY & JOSH
Original Source: A PRETTY SPRING WEDDING AT NEWTON HALL – KIRSTY & JOSH
A BEAUTIFUL BREATH OF FRESH AIR, TODAY’S REAL WEDDING IS BRIMMING WITH THE PRETTIEST RUSTIC SPRING DETAILING.
High school sweethearts, Kirsty and Josh, were keen for a classic church ceremony followed by a reception at a North East venue they’d not visited before, finding the perfect setting in Newton Hall, located on the stunning Northumbrian coastline.
Falling head over heels for the venue’s intimate ambience and gorgeous decor, they chose to keep the styling simple with complementary rustic details and stunning seasonal blooms. They also added some thoughtful personal touches along the way, focusing on adding contributions from family and friends whilst using locally sourced suppliers and produce. This reminds us just how special it is to involve relatives and besties in your plans where possible, and also highlights our mantra to look to the amazing talent on your doorstep when it comes to hiring an A-team of suppliers!
An absolute treat for the eyes and brimming with super lush inspo for you fellow spring/summer brides, we can’t get enough of the insanely pretty floral arrangements featuring the sweetest peach and cream hues, plus Kirsty’s stunning fishtail lace dress which she totally rocks, oh and the we-want-to-devour-it-all dessert table totally gets our vote too!
For all the fine details bride Kirsty fills us in from her new home in The Bahamas. Yes, you read that right, The Bahamas! Jealous? Much!
Kirsty says: We were high school sweethearts, having first met at Prudhoe High School. We now live and work in The Bahamas and our first baby is due in June!
After ten years together Josh finally proposed in Brac, Croatia, at the top of a bell tower during sunset and it was magical. I think after waiting ten years it was more of a shock when it did actually happen! My initial reaction was “oh my god, oh my god, oh my god”’ then of course I said “YES!”
We got married on 2nd May 2019 and left for The Bahamas two weeks later! We decided to go for May as it was the month in between our two birthdays and both having winter birthdays we thought it would be nice to have something to celebrate during the summer!
We got married at the beautiful St Peter’s church in Bywell, Stocksfield. I always dreamed of getting married in a local church. I was christened at St John’s, Mickley, in the church where my parents got married and always wanted somewhere me and Josh could share the same tradition.
Josh was not christened and so we picked St Peter’s of Bywell after meeting the vicar who looked after both parishes and soon became part of the church community after attending Sunday service. We both felt that getting married in church was the formality we wanted when making a lifelong commitment to each other and having somewhere that felt special to us and our family.
After attending many family and friend weddings locally, the first thing that was important for us was to find a venue that we had not been to for another wedding. Thankfully for us, Newton Hall was top of our list. We visited a few local venues and both love the Northumberland coast so after viewing Newton Hall we knew it was for us! We loved the intimacy of the venue, its boutique style and décor, plus having the option for our guests to stay made it more special for us.
We fell in love with the appearance of Newton Hall so didn’t feel the need to add any extra theming – we just went with a natural, rustic style. We added some personal touches and all of our suppliers and décor were friends and family / sourced locally.
The colour scheme was very natural and classic with lots of pearl, champagne, nude tones.
