An autumnal Northumberland Wedding with Scottish accents and stunning burgundy, navy, burnt orange and rose gold details

Today I am thrilled to share this Autumnal Northumberland Wedding with Scottish accents and stunning burgundy, navy, burnt orange and rose gold details.

Images were captured by Bailey and Mitchell Photography.

Bailey & Mitchell are Emily and Micah, a husband and Wife team based in Halifax, West Yorkshire.

​Their documentary style approach is simple, natural and relaxed with the aim of wanting those they photograph to be able to have fun and enjoy their time with them.

They love to seek out the little moments and find the hidden details that you may not have even thought of yourself!

​They aren’t just all about weddings though…they also shoot relaxed and natural lifestyle sessions for families, couples and little ones!

 

I hand over to beautiful Bride Jess to share the couples love story…

 

How did you meet?

We met in a bar in Newcastle called “The Tanners Arms.”

We were both attending the Massa Confusa farewell gig in 2016. Jordan was with his brother, Brad and his friend Bowman.

Bowman fainted mid-set and had to be carried out, so I drunkenly, Florence Nightingaled outside with a pint of water to help.

Jordan and I got talking and the rest, as they say, is history!

Tell us about the Proposal…

The proposal was a complete surprise!

We got home from work and I wanted to get tea ready, however, Jordan had been working on a new magic card trick which he just HAD to try out.

So I picked a card and Jordan had me hold it between my hands.

After much shuffling Jordan produced a completely different card proclaiming “THIS IS YOUR CARD!’ – Only it wasn’t.

So then Jordan asked me to look at the card I was holding, and when I looked there was an Ace of Hearts with “Will you marry me?” written across it.

It was the most perfect proposal, right in our living room!

Tell us about your wedding planning journey…

We realised we both wanted a relatively small wedding, but that we definitely wanted it to be like a big house party, so exclusive use of the venue was a must!

We also wanted to make sure that the day was captured perfectly, so once we had the venue and photographer sorted everything else just followed suit.

It was such a fun process!

Any special touches/DIY?

We really wanted to incorporate my Scottish heritage and our love of alternative music and art into our day.

One our close friends offered to play bagpipes during the drinks reception and our DJ did an AMAZING job of transporting us back to 2007 with the evening reception.

Jordan wore Fender plectrum cufflinks and I paired my wedding dress with a custom, hand painted leather jacket (courtesy of Sammy Leas Retro on Etsy), frilly socks and pink heels.

The room decor was all set up by us and our families, invitations lovingly handmade by my mum, and naming our tables after places we’d made memories together.

We also made all the small details like confetti baskets, tissues, post box and guestbook jars.

What was the theme / colour palette of your Big Day?

Being in November we really wanted to take advantage of the late autumnal colours so opted for Burgundy, Navy, burnt orange and rose gold.

Did Covid have any impact on your Wedding Planning?

We lost our original venue as they unfortunately went into liquidation in November 2020.

We managed to find a new venue but had to push the date back 3 months, as well as changing the decor and colour scheme from Summer to Autumn / Winter.

We were gutted about having to reschedule but we we were lucky that we managed to move all but 1 of our Suppliers to the new date.

Jordan’s mum, sister and our niece all ended up catching Covid over our original date (they were all okay thankfully!), as well as there being torrential rain on the day as well, so with our rescheduled Autumnal Northumberland Wedding it all worked out in the end.

What was the best bit of your day?

Jordan: Straight after the ceremony, when everyone came in and said hello and congratulations; just felt so hyped!

Jess: During the wedding breakfast after the main course. Just looking around the room and seeing all the people we love, together, having a good time and celebrating with us. Was so nice to sit with Jordan and just take it all in for 5 minutes.

Is there anything you would do differently?

Grabbed food from the evening buffet! We were having such a good time we both forgot to eat!

What advice would you give to other couples getting married?

Purposely put 5 minutes aside on the day to take it all in, as it can be quite overwhelming.

Research and meet your suppliers beforehand if you can. I can’t thank our Photographers, Emily and Micah, and the MUAs Hayley and Donna enough for just making everything so easy and fun!

But mainly, don’t sweat the small stuff, and just enjoy the process!
