These two are like Link and Zelda, a perfect fit, made to be together. A wedding day is a present day, kind of. You get yourself a new hubby or a new wife. You’re about to do the rest of your lives together. It doesn’t get any better. Well, maybe when The Almighty sends you a little bit of sunshine when he previously decided it was gonna be a wet day. Check out these photos from Amy and Wes’s Rogerthorpe Manor wedding.

Rogerthorpe Manor wedding – Amy and Wes

We met 2014 after being set up by a couple we both knew. After a few weeks of texting, we went to Bella Italian for our first date and followed by the cinema to see American Hustle and we’ve been inseparable ever since.

Wes proposed whilst we were on a mini break to a very wet east coast. It was a really wet and miserable week but we tried to make the most of it with various outings to Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay and Scarborough. I often joke that Wes had to do something to save the holiday!

The planning was for the most part pretty easy. Both being very laid back people, we didn’t get caught up in the insignificant details. We knew we wanted to get married after the summer and autumn is a beautiful season.

The venue is one we had been to before for a wedding and loved, so it didn’t take long for everything to start falling into place.

How would you best describe your wedding theme?

A rustic autumn theme. Lots of use of burnt orange and teal colours.

Ceremony music

The music before the ceremony were songs from musicians we both like that were somewhat on the mushy side (Mumford & Sons, Muse, Snow Patrol, The Lumineers).

Amy walked down the aisle with her father to ‘Northern Wind’ by City and Colour. City and Colour is her favourite artist and the opening verse was fitting for the autumn theme of the wedding.

The ceremony was perfect. It helped that the registrar was so lovely and laid back, she put our minds at easy and made the whole thing go smoothly (no fluffing up of lines!). We had one reading, which the registrar read which was taken from The Kindly Ones by Neil Gaiman, a light hearted poke at how horrible love is.

The closing ceremony music was much more upbeat and light hearted, taking inspiration from the Guardians of the Galaxy movie soundtrack.

‘You + Me’ by You + Me. This is a collaboration between Dallas Green and P!nk. The song is a love realistic look on love and how people just are just meant for each other – flaws and all.

Favourite moment of the day?

When we went to the front of the venue to take some photos following the ceremony and the mingling and group photos. It was the first time we really got to be alone (plus Michal) and talk.

Any advice for couples planning their wedding day?

It sounds cliche but don’t stress the little things. They really won’t matter!
