Springtime vibes ... at The Normans

Spring has finally sprung here at The Normans (huzzah!) and the sun-kissed March wedding of Claire and Paddy is a vision to behold!

Bride Claire and her gaggle of girls readied themselves in The Normans onsite cottage, located a stone's throw from the venue ...

And, with flowers abound inside the venue, the girls decided to add a floral touch to their own wedding look - with a single rosebud for the bridesmaids ...

... and a full and fabulous floral crown for the lady herself, created by the couple's wedding florist, Clock Dandelion

Indeed, Claire's crowning glory and verdant bouquet reflect the look of the day perfectly;  a fusion of elegant white roses with wild ferns, thistles and rustic foliage - to name a few.

Clock Dandelion's fresh, country creations could be found in each of the venue's key spaces: over-sized vases took pride of place in the Ceremony Barn, marking the spot where Paddy and Claire would say 'I do'.

In the Cow Stalls, miniature Yorkshire ferns and white orchids were suspended from beams, creating a magical, botanical backdrop.

Not to be outdone, the bridal party were equally well-dressed from head to toe. The bridesmaids chose mismatching blush-hued dresses from ASOS.com

Man of the hour, Paddy, donned a bespoke suit, handpicking his fabric and lining from Huddersfield Fine Worsted's before Raymond Andrews Tailors created the finished article. Groomsmen, meanwhile, wore brown wool suits from Slater Menswear

Claire's gorgeous bridal look comprised a Stella Yorke gown from Celebrations Bridal in Ossett and a faux fur wrap from Reiss to take off the March chill.

And let's not forget the shoes ... Barkers brogues for him and Manolo Blahnik's for her.

When it came to the cake, however, the couple decided to do away with tradition, opting instead for a tower of chocolate brownies - created by friend, Catherine. As delicious as the big day itself!

We couldn’t have picked a more perfect venue for our wedding. From the meticulous attention to detail by The Normans team to the flow of the venue, both ensured success. The bar being by the dancefloor keeps people on the dancefloor all night, while the beautiful courtyard - where we had our photos - meant we could be with everyone all day. Thank you for providing the perfect venue for our perfect day!
— blonde bombshell, Claire
