Phew! We are finally at the end of wedding week and I bet you are glad to see it go. I know that I’ve covered it in hugely great detail this week. I’m fully aware that it might not be of much interest to some readers, but I wanted to document it for myself. Some of the details of the day are so ephemeral, that I want to have these posts to look back on in future years.
I wanted to do a round up of all the vendors that helped make our day so magical. We managed to keep our wedding on budget (under £5000). This happened by begging and borrowing as much as possible, getting married up North (as opposed to London) and making/doing as much as possible ourselves. It took a lot of effort before hand: especially with the self DJing! On the Friday we spent all day pushing ourselves to make the venue look glorious for the following day. The worst part of a DIY wedding is returning on Sunday to take everything down and clean up, but undoubtedly we are so glad that we managed to have a budget-friendly wedding that still ticked all our wedding dream boxes!

Our vendors went above and beyond for us and I’d like to thank a few individually:
Melanie our floral designer was a god-send. She was so kind, so helpful, and knew exactly what look I was going for. She managed to deliver perfection.
Neil, our photographer, managed to capture such beautiful photos, whilst still making everyone feel so at ease. He put up with our incessant questions and was there with a smile throughout the day.
Victoria, who was solely responsible for me looking like a bride on the day stepped in when I was so stressed and struggling to find someone after having been canceled on. She was so wonderful and I knew I was in good hands.
I would so heartily recommend anyone on this list and let me know if you have any questions about Yorkshire vendors or weddings on a strict budget!
