Today I’m delighted to share Lauren and Dylan’s beautiful winter wedding at Le Petit Château. This quirky wedding venue in Northumberland has a stunning Belle Époque inspired French Chapel ceremony room with the most incredible marble fireplace, which gave Lauren and Dylan an enchanting setting in which to exchange their vows. Le Petit Château also has an impressive water fountain with fire rim around it, creating a great spot for some night time photographs.
I love the couple’s choice of styling, which worked so well with the venue and time of year. For their wedding breakfast, rustic, bare wooden tables provided a lovely contrast to glass chargers with silver rim detail, while table arrangements of flowers and foliage on top of ruffled linen added texture to the look.
I also love that they included their dog, Sansa, in their day, with Lauren saying she made their day even more special. Sansa obviously had a great time too, involving herself in the ceremony and joining Lauren and Dylan on the dance floor for their first dance!
This really is such a beautiful wedding, and it has been captured so perfectly by Lindsey and her assistant, Greta, of Forget Me Knot Images…
“Dylan and I met in secondary school. We were best friends at first and then started dating. He proposed on Christmas Eve Eve, under my favourite tree in our city. We had already done ‘our’ Christmas day and gifts, as we like to do it before we visit family and don’t have too much time to ourselves.
“We decided to go out for dinner and Dylan suggested a diversion to warm up with some cocktails. As we were taking the detour we happened to go past my favourite tree that, at that time of year, is filled with twinkly lights next to a light display. He asked me for a kiss and as I turned around he was on one knee and popped the question.”
