We love it when our weddings are deemed just so gorgeous that they have to go into print…
Planning a wedding for someone is an absolute privilege; to have been chosen to design, plan & manage what will become one of the most special days in a person’s whole life is a real honour.
We put so much of ourselves into each wedding. Our clients don’t see the blood, sweat and sometimes tears that go into making sure that every little detail is perfect on their big day.
The aftermath of a wedding is a really happy bubble of memories and excitement as the newlyweds begin the next chapter of their lives. That’s why it’s so wonderful when, in amongst all of this, a couple take the time to send us a Thank You.
We received this beautiful card earlier this week and just wanted to share it with you, because words like this really make a difference to how we feel. We could certainly feel a little glow flowing around the office when it arrived, and maybe even the odd high five, proving that it was worth all the hard work.
THANK YOU Guy & Lucy for evoking those feelings!

We love planning events as much as weddings here at I DO and I’m very conscious that we don’t often manage to obtain imagery of the designs that we create.
That’s why on Saturday I took my camera down to Unity Works in Wakefield and snapped a few images of the elegant Christmas party that we had created.
Our client wanted a festive themed event without looking too traditional, so we chose a colour palette that worked with the room and still gave a feeling of Christmas.
Because you can never have too much glitz and glamour we chose to spray manzanita trees with silver glitter. Adding carefully selected crystal drops we created a stunning effect as the light was thrown around the room. The images can’t really portray how this looked in reality.
Nothing evokes the feeling of Christmas more than spruce – so we used this to dress the ledges around the room and added over 100 candles to bring some warmth into the room.
Lucy & Guy contacted I DO Wedding & Event Planning right at the beginning of their wedding planning process. They wanted to work with someone who knew the local area and suppliers, but more importantly with someone who understood them as people. After searching google for a Yorkshire Wedding Planner, they found I DO and we began to help to bring their wedding to life.
An extremely current couple with clear ideas of how they wanted their day to look and run. Their goal was to achieve a wedding abundant with sophistication and elegance.
The attention to detail with their wedding was simply breathtaking and started right at the beginning of our planning process with them.
Their day began with an exquisitely romantic ceremony in a local Church.
And so the knot was tied and it was time for the party to start…..
Guests enjoyed drinks and canapés in the sunshine. The sound of house music was complimented by the sultry sounds of a live saxophonist.
The stunning marquee was a real labour of love for us – we worked so hard to make sure that every detail was exactly how Lucy had pictured it.
Our gorgeous happy couple …
The party went on well into the early hours…
It really was a beautiful wedding…

After a memorably romantic candle lit proposal, Anna & Alan searched high and low for their perfect wedding venue. It needed to be somewhere that felt relaxed with lots of open spaces. They love nature and the outdoors. They also love music.
They found and booked Yorkshire Sculpture Park but were concerned as to how they could create a wedding that was representative of their personalities in a relatively modern building. There is also a very small window of time in which you can set up the venue because the building is open to the public until the evening. Both are challenges that we relish at I DO.
From the start our journey with Anna & Alan was fun. It was clear that they loved music and festivals more than anything, they spent any spare funds travelling far and wide to catch their favourite bands and soak up that festival atmosphere. They loved colour and nothing too conventional.
Anna’s parents were worried that the wedding could end up looking completely untraditional and not seem like a wedding at all. They had guests flying in from far and wide and really wanted to make sure that the wedding was everything that Anna & Alan wanted, but also contained a level of elegance. We worked with the whole family to ensure that everyone was happy.
Anna adores turquoise and so the colour featured heavily in our theme. They weren’t afraid to let us experiment with different colours and we hope that you like the end result. It certainly represented their vibrant personalities perfectly.
Personal touches were in abundance and included: bespoke lanyards for each guest, an illustration of the couple, a spectacular festival themed cake with figurines of Anna & Alan in wellies with a yurt topper, a fingerprint camper van, a home-made photo booth, personalised M&M’s, pebbles for guests to write their well wishes and a plethora of pomanders, balloons and flowers in our chosen colour scheme.
We worked hard to create the overall look and would love to hear your views.
We loved working with Anna & Alan and we felt priveleged working at this unique venue………….I mean, where else can you can get a wedding photograph with a phenomenal sculpture of a super-sized rabbit.
