I’ll be honest, this bride is one of my closest friends. She’s lovely, and I feel very lucky to have been part of her wedding ~ and to be sharing it with you!

For me, the most wonderful thing about this wedding is how close the family are. Helen and her sister Sarah, who was her bridesmaid, are like best friends as well as sisters.

The monochrome theme and classic styling perfectly matched their venue, Oulton Hall near Leeds, an opulent 18th century former mansion.
