How we both met

We met on Tinder!

The Wedding Venue

Woodhill Hall, Otterburn.

Why we chose to have a celebrant wedding ceremony

We wanted a more personal, modern vibe to our ceremony.  Still romantic and true to what the ceremony is about but more specific to us and personal to us!

Ideas about what our ceremony could have looked like

We had a little bit of an idea, just from research. But Jo really crafted and helped build a picture of what it could be and what it could feel like with her help…Bringing original ideas and suggestions to make it really special and unique for us.

The best part of the ceremony for us

The fact that Jo told our personal story to everyone, recapping our
relationship so far and what the ceremony was signifying. We loved that we could mix it up and choose handfasting to be part of our ceremony, whilst also exchanging our rings and vows.

Everyone loved that it was SO personal and a little different.. it kept
people interested!




What our guests said about our wedding ceremony/day

Everyone absolutely loved it – and especially loved Jo! I think every single
person both cried and laughed during it and many people said it was the best ceremony they’d heard, and how it came as a lovely surprise to everyone attending. Thank you Jo!


Some of our fav wedding suppliers and why we chose them

  • Paul & Nanda Green – Our incredible photographers and the most amazing couple. Married themselves, they know how to help you achieve what you want your day to look and feel like, how to guide you throughout the day & know what you’d want captured. Their energy and personalities are just gorgeous and all that aside.. their work is SPECTACULAR. You could spot their images a mile off.. no one does it better!! Their signature style is to die for. The fact they come as a pair Is amazing and the way they work together is just seamless.. I guess it helps that they are married! Its like they can read each others minds! We’ve only had our sneak peak photos so far and already can’t believe the beauty in what they’ve captured. Forever grateful we managed to book them!!
  • Anna From Flori & Fern. Anna is north-east based and after weeks of going through what felt like every florist in the UK.. Anna’s work stood out and took our breath away. Again, her signature style is so romantically organic and gorgeous.. like your flowers had always been growing where they were placed. Her knowledge on what will look best and what flowers will be available to you mixed with what your vision is is unbelievable and the special touches from candles to silks.. its all exquisite. I cant say ENOUGH good things about Anna. Her skill and craft is miles apart from the rest, and she herself is a dream to work with!
  • Emily Bridalwear in Sheffield – I found my perfect dress with Nicole who works there and can honestly say start to finish, the process was a luxurious dream. They are all so incredibly gorgeous, lovely & professional and nothing is ever too much. Lizzie was the seamstress who helped create my dream dress, overskirt, accessories.. everything. She has magic hands and a heart of gold! Cannot recommend enough. We live in Surrey and I travelled 2.5 hours each way to visit for my appointments and I would do it again in a heartbeat. Customer service like nowhere else!

Three words that sum up our ‘Love Jo’ experience!

Loving, Personal, Magical…
