Love was in full bloom here at The Normans at the end of May, when Marie and James's big day boasted blossom trees, pink posies - and glorious sunshine.

Elsewhere in the venue, those dominant pink tones were punctuated with wild, English-grown garden flowers ...
... paying the perfect compliment to The Normans rustic vibes: as seen in our original Cow Stalls-turned-ultimate wedding snug!
But it was Ceremony Barn where heads really turned - upward! Cue two towering blossom trees, which formed a breathtaking frame to the couple's vows. (Available to hire from Ambience Venue Styling York!)
Adding yet more romance to the occasion, were Endymion String Quartet, who serenaded guests as Marie stepped down the aisle - and during celebratory reception drinks too.
Officially husband and wife, James and Marie left the Ceremony Barn beneath a shower of petal confetti ...
... before promptly joining guests in the Courtyard for traditional garden games - and champagne, naturally!
After ample merry making outside, guests took their seats inside - this time heading to The Normans Grain Shed, where yet more floral displays took shape.
Centerpieces comprised flower-filled hurricane lanterns, while tea-lights added a touch of sparkle to table tops.
Rustic name tags served as guests' place names, tied to a simple sprig of aromatic lavender.
That lavender hue also appeared on our Chiavari chairs, courtesy of Ambience Venue Styling York, who added a mauve sash to each.
We just loved the top table display of real moss, offset with pastel-coloured candles, roses and succulents.
Even the couple's cake was dressed to thrill, with real flowers and yet more lavender finishing the vanilla sponge creation off a treat. (Layers included vanilla cream, sticky carrot and ginger and lemon drizzle.)
The overall effect was a pink and purple haven, with plenty of rustic wooden signage to boot.
And with the scene so beautifully set inside, the couple were also sure to make the most of the rustic surrounds out, with those all-important newlywed shots... Congratulations, James and Marie!
