Nirmala and Dan / A Bohemian Craven Arms Skipton Wedding
We’re up in beautiful Yorkshire today for Nirmala and Dan’s Craven Arms, Skipton, wedding. They went for a rustic, bohemian, pretty, vintage fusion styled day with a super informal, non-traditional diy feel. Nirmala wore a stunning true vintage lace dress with a flower crown. Her lovely brooch bouquet had been made by her Mum from items she had been collecting over the years. Nirmala’s her bridesmaids wore 1950s style polka dot and floral dresses.
The couple chose a loose ‘tea and cake’ theme for the day, as it had played an important part in the early days of their relationship. In Nirmala’s initial contact email to me she described how they spent a year travelling around in their campervan drinking tea and eating cake up in the Lake District! Bride Nirmala collected vintage tea caddies and tea pots to use as table centrepieces, and the favours had a wonderful personal touch, mugs made by the groom himself who has a talent for pottery. Instead of a traditional single wedding cake Nirmala and Dan opted for a selection of cakes! (What’s better than one wedding cake? many wedding cakes!) The tables were beautifully decorated with wildflowers in the caddies collected by Nirmala with handmade bunting and fairy lights all around the hall where the ceremony and reception took place.
The morning before the wedding day the couple had completely the ‘legal bit’ at a registry office, and in the evening were joined by friends and family at the campsite they were staying at just down the road from the Craven Arms, for a hand fasting ceremony.
Here is the story of their wedding day!
