Nicola & Paul’s Day
Nicola and Paul's wedding took place at Tankersley Manor on Armistice Day. They incorporated poppies into their wedding as a sign of respect.
On the morning of the wedding I met Nicola and her Bridesmaids at Tankersley Manor. They’d had use of the spa the evening before and all looked refreshed and ready for the day ahead. Eleanor Moxon MUA and Rachael from Hair at Sorbeys were already busy doing hair and makeup for the whole bridal party.
The morning flew by, and soon it was time to go down to the Pennine Suite on the ground floor of Tankersley Manor for the wedding ceremony. Paul was waiting patiently for his bride to arrive with his best man by his side. They both had poppy cuff links bought from the Royal British Legion website and told me that the wedding favours also came from there. Everyone would have a poppy by the end of the wedding breakfast.
After the ceremony we went into the grounds of Tankersley Manor to capture the group and couples photographs. Although it was a typical, cold November day the sun was shining. It made all the colours of the autumn stand out and creates some stunning backdrops for our images.
The wedding Cake
Back indoors everyone was filing into the wedding breakfast room which is where I first saw the wedding cake. It was a mixture of a traditionally decorated, white three tiered cake and Lego! A small section had been decorated with Lego bricks and figures, giving the illusion they were building the cake. It was so clever, and incredibly well done.
As the evening went on more guests arrived and took to the dancefloor. Nicola’s Mum made sure everyone was given a slice of cake, and the bridesmaids donned their spa slippers as evening footwear!
My favourite part of the day was the beer. Nicola and Paul had been to Theakstons brewery and found a beer called “I love you will you marry me?” I’d never heard of it and I loved it.
