Shine on at The Normans

Confetti time at The Normans Photo by

Here at The Normans we love a confetti shot (who doesn't?) and this one has to be an all time favourite! Cue an elated Mark and Jenny - aka Mr and Mrs Zaki - being showered in petals after a candle- and fairy-lit service in our Ceremony Barn.

Decorative lighting and a wedding-white colour scheme formed a timeless look for the day. The Ceremony Barn was privy to a parade of delicate silver birch trees, each of which had glass baubles, filled with tea-lights, suspended from their branches.

Over in the Cow Stalls, eucalyptus clung to every inch of our mangers, with scented leaves interspersed with twinkling lights...

...while the troughs were filled with pretty white tulips and foliage (the very same tulips were used for Jenny's bridal bouquet.)

Dining among the trees at The Normans Photo by

Over in The Normans Marquee, cherry blossom trees formed statuesque centrepieces, with trailing ivy weaving its way over trunks and along branches.

With floral wonder abound - all courtesy of the uber-talented Caines of Harrogate - it's hard to think of anything beyond tulips and trees - but allow us to share yet more details to fawn over!  

Table names at The Normans Photo by

The tables! For rustic table centre inspo, check out Jenny and Mark's hessian-wrapped centrepieces, offset with tree trunk-style table names (and plenty of lovely plonk).

Bridesmaids celebrate at The Normans Photo by

The outfits! Jenny's elegant bridesmaids' each wore floor-length navy gowns from Whistles - and carried wild white and green posies.

Bride Jenny literally sparkled from head to toe in the gorgeous Beatrice by Jenny Packham, purchased from decadent Harrogate boutique, The Bridal Collection. (Swoon!)

And don't even get us started on these feather-strewn Jimmy Choos, Vivien 85 - the ultimate #shoegoals!

String Quartet at The Normans Photo by

Outside one of Yorkhire's finest ensembles, Trio Vivo, set the classiest of tones, with music for guests to sup champagne to in The Normans sun-scorched courtyard...

While inside one of our favourite caterers, Friends4Dinner, served a stunning sit-down meal to the couple and their guests inside The Normans marquee.

And let's not forget this tasty tower of fromage! Namely, Gorwydd Caerphilly, Vignotte, Cornish Yag, Swaledale Blue and Godminster fromage, decorated with figs and flowers. 

Party time at The Normans Photo by

Sated - and ready to party - the couple took to the dancefloor, to get down to the dual beats of a Jonny Ross Music DJ and live saxophonist. Floor-filling sound guaranteed. Huzzah!

Holding our wedding at The Normans was a magnificent 10-star experience! From the very beginning of sending our parents to visit the venue to picking up our belongings after the wedding day, we received nothing but kindness, helpfulness and utter professionalism. We are absolutely over the moon that we chose The Normans to marry in front of our loved ones. (All of our guests told us over and over again how much they loved the venue too!)
— the ever-so elegant, Jenny
