Beth & Andy tied the knot in July at Driffield’s Wold Top Brewery. Together for a whopping 10 years, Andy popped the question to Beth 5 years in on her birthday in the Dominican Republic. They chose Wold Top Brewery because in their own words it is ‘unique and rustic with cheap beer!’ I guess you can’t say fairer than that. This Driffield venue is a unique wedding space, set upon acres of Yorkshire countryside. A wonderful blend of stunning and seclusion.
The day began at Wold Top Brewery as Beth & her bridal party got glammed up in the bridal suite. Andy meanwhile was getting ready on the other side of the field, literally, as this is where he had camped out the night before. The mini campsite perfectly blended in with the couple’s music festival theme, which nodded to Beth & Andy’s love of music and gigs.
With the aid of her bridesmaids, Beth got dressed into a stunning and unique bridal gown by Sassi Holford. The floor length strapless gown had a beautiful pink floral pattern, which complimented Beth’s blonde & pink locks perfectly.
Meanwhile, Andy waited out in the sunny garden for his bride, surrounded by family & friends. Beth walked down the aisle with her father to Elbow’s One Day Like This. It was an incredibly special song, as Beth’s mum used to sing it in her choir. She sadly passed away recently, so this song was dedicated to her memory ♡
The ceremony was lovely, as both Beth & Andy read their own written vows to one-another. Such a beautiful touch – hand written vows really make the ceremony very personal and individual.
After the ceremony, guests enjoyed drinks as we took a handful of group photos. Shortly after we went for a little walk around Wold Top Brewery‘s grounds for a little bride & groom shoot. I love how the colours in the corn field photos really pop – such a fab contrast between the field and bright blue skies. It was a really nice and peaceful section of the day, as everyone mingled and enjoyed the sunshine.
The wedding breakfast room had lots of homemade decorations which looked great. It was a big bright room, with rainbow chair ties and colourful bunting hanging from the ceiling. The wedding breakfast was in-keeping with the festival theme, as each table had a picnic-like spread full of goodies. A whole bunch of speeches were given by different people, and it was obvious that a lot of thought had gone in to them. The rest of the evening was full of fun, laughter and love, as people mingled and had a boogie to the live band that was playing.
The day was quite a family oriented affair, as everyone pitched together to make it happen. Beth’s step mum made the gorgeous, tall naked cake and her dad was doing a DJ set. Andy’s brother-in-law was his best man a close friend conducted the ceremony. Full of so much support and love, this was a wonderful day to be a part of.
