Your North East Wedding - May/June 2023 (Issue 56)

As soon as we visited Le Petit Chateau we fell in love! It had an exotic look and feel to it, and the garden’s amazing. For place names we opted for sage green with white writing and gold wax seals, while our tables were named after places we’ve been to together. We chose light up letters to the left of the top table which said Mr & Mrs Francis, as well as a botanical heart sign just before the entrance. Considering I’m the most indecisive person, the minute I tried on my Justin Alexander Signature Gramercy dress I knew it was the one! We wanted our cake to fit in with our colour scheme, deciding on white with sage watercolour and gold flakes, topped with beautiful fresh blooms. We were blown away by our flowers, especially my bouquet. It was a stunning mix of bold colours with bleached peacock feathers, in memory of Lewis’ mum, who’s sadly no longer with us. 36
