Jamie shares his recollections of  Rachel and Liams fabulous day…


“There I was at the Wedding Wonder Show at St James’ Park in Newcastle last October, talking to couples and having a laugh with my usual neighbours at the event, Mooshki Bridal.”

“Things were starting to quieten down when I started talking to a bride to be and her mum. ”We’re going to have a marquee in Corbridge at the cricket club”.

“WOW!!!! I was blown away from that point on. It was going to be very much a DIY wedding.”

“So here is the story of Rachel and Liam’s wedding featuring Corbridge Northumberland Wedding.”

“Early October. Corbridge in Northumberland. A bit of cloud but relatively warm.”

“If you haven’t been to Corbridge I suggest you do. It’s beautiful. So close to Newcastle but a million miles away from the urban hustle and bustle.”

“Over the previous 12 months I’d got to know Rachel and Liam well and the plans for the day were sounding better and better every time I spoke to them. It was going to be a superb day!”

“At their house, Rachel was upstairs getting ready. Make up and hair was being sorted but the mood was light hearted.”

“Downstairs, Rachel’s mum was making adjustments to her dad’s suit while he tried to open a bottle of bubbly. This was all very relaxed.”

“With everything now in place we were ready for the off. With the church being only a few hundred metres up the road, Rachel opted for walking to the church, walking in the middle of the road for the final part of the journey.”

“I think we all wanted a traffic stopping moment but in reality this was rural Northumberland and the whole village had stopped for the wedding anyway so there was no traffic!”

“Piped into the church, Rachel met Liam at the bottom of the aisle. His smile said it all really.”

“As the first hymn was sung they chatted to each other. The ceremony itself was a mix of sentiment and humour.”

“The vicar was hilarious slipping in little jokes here and there. I should also point out that he was also pro-photography. Such a breath of fresh air.”

2After the ceremony and confetti, the guests made their way across the Tyne to the cricket club where the marquee was set up.”

“Meanwhile, Rachel, Liam and I spent some time on the bridge and then up into the hills over looking the village. They sipped champagne in the back of their VW Camper Van whilst being driven around.”

“The marquee was decorated with detail made by Rachel and her friends featuring new and old Ordnance Survey Maps.”

“Flowers were by Wildflower. It looked like an English Country Tea Party.”

“The marquee was set up next to the pavilion and dressing rooms which displayed all sorts of cricket memorabilia from people such as Andrew “Freddie” Flintoff. ”

“The guests were treated to a BBQ grill meal (I have to say, the food was outstanding!). And then the speeches started.”

“Funny doesn’t cut it. There was a lot of emotion but you can’t get away from the dry humour of this gang of people I’d spent the day with.”

“When The Heed (The best man) got up I had to remind myself I was there to work. I was creased as he told a story of Liam’s family’s Rotweiller’s affection for him.”

“This wasn’t so much a best man’s speech poking fun at the groom…he was poking fun at himself. Genius!”

“Into the evening, the band warmed up and then the first dance took place under the stars. This part of the marquee looked mind-blowing.”

“Blacked out with lights dotted around the ceiling. Add to that the uplighting and you were left with an effect that looked similar to the Northern Lights at times.”

“It wasn’t going to take much to get the dance floor full here. As soon as the invite was there everyone was up dancing to Chain Reaction.”

“I departed to the dressing rooms where I spent the following 2 hours or so staging a cricket themed Photo Booth. I’m glad I don’t shock easily! It was hilarious!”

“Just an amazing day and I was so pleased to be part of it.”

Thanks so much to Jamie for sharing this gorgeous Northumberland Wedding.

I love the community feeling you get with the wedding with the walk to the church, and being so close to the countryside and the venue being not the conventional sort of Wedding venue .

THE D.I.Y decor by the bride and her friends is fantastic and so creative.

I also love how the grooms Scottish roots and the brides English roots are so well balanced in table names, wedding beverages, and the funny little scottish/english translation sheets…just too cute.
