Whitfield and Ward’s Customer Service Manager, Amie married Kyle in a fabulous hygge inspired wedding on the 7th of February. Read on to find out how they created a warm and cosy atmosphere for their hygge winter wedding at Great John Street Hotel, Manchester.
Having worked in the wedding industry for nearly 3 years, Amie knew exactly what she wanted for her wedding. Her vision was to have a very intimate and simple wedding day, with the focus on the celebration of her and Kyle’s marriage amongst family and friends. She said:
“Kyle and I wanted a relaxed day, where everyone was comfortable so that we could enjoy every moment.”
Through Pinterest and online research, Amie came across Hygge weddings, a twist on traditional rustic weddings where everything is pared back so the focus is on the celebration of marriage. It’s about making things simple and creating a day full of wonderful moments. A Hygge wedding encourages you to wear what you want, make your own cake and decorations and even have floral arrangements with no flowers! The idea is make it enjoyable, cosy and do it your own way!
“I knew so many wedding supplier friends but Hygge helped to inspire so many of our choices. I had a simple but gorgeous Sarah Seven dress, from Love Bridal. A relaxed bouquet with foliage and grasses from the Flower Lounge. Kyle’s Mum made our beautiful naked cake, decorated with seasonal fresh fruit. The ultimate comfort food, a beef casserole for our wedding breakfast and our singer was a busker we fell in love one day walking around Manchester! And our day was captured by Jonny Draper’s amazing documentary style photography which put everyone at ease”
When it came to choosing Kyle’s suit, Amie had an early preview of our new tailored suit collection and had her eye on a tonal navy look. However, when Kyle came in to design his tailored suit they went for a completely different look.! They chose a bold burgundy check jacket and waistcoat with navy trousers. Amie said:
‘It was so funny, because I always advise our customers that you can only really decide on something once you’ve tried it on! When Kyle put the burgundy check on, we just knew it suited him more and it was so important for him to wear what he felt comfortable in.”
Kyle’s groomsmen complemented his look with our navy Highgrove lounge suit from our hire range and wore waistcoats and ties to match Kyle.
When we asked Amie if she had any advice for other couples, she said:
“I see every day how stressful weddings can be for couples. We were really lucky as we knew many of our suppliers but my advice is to go with people who you feel comfortable with and will help you. For me the key thing was to try and not get distracted from what our day was all about, Kyle and me.”
