Designed by award-winning architects and combining late-Victorian grandeur with contemporary comforts, Principal York is elegant and impressive in décor. From the awe-inspiring cast iron staircase and original Victorian floors, to the high-ceilinged banqueting rooms and 155 luxurious bedrooms, the hotel is packed with character and charm. Surrounded by three acres of landscaped gardens, it's known as the Grande Dame of York, standing proudly just steps from the city's bustling train station.

Nicola and Ian met at school back in the 80s. “We then went to the same college, where Ian asked me out on the steps in front of his friends – and I said, 'No!'” says Nicola. “Years passed, then one day Ian popped up on Facebook as a friend suggestion. Messaging each other, he explained he was getting divorced, so being a lawyer I offered my help and suggested a coffee date. That first coffee was lovely; a great catch up while talking about the legal stuff. The next time we met was to get his divorce and conveyancing moving. Ian then asked me out for a third time for no reason, saying we should go for a walk the next morning. We talked for hours, then as we said goodbye he kissed me. Boom – that's when I knew this was something special.”

"Inspired by the strong history and breathtaking beauty of Birdsall House, I wanted to design a Vanity Fair floral wedding shoot to create a timeless and elegant feel,” says Helen Emson of Willow & Bear Floral Design. “The focus was on empowering our bride to be strong, independent and individual in her wedding styling and choices. Having three different styling and floral looks reflected different sides of her personality, with a consistent strong classical look from her groom standing strong by her side. I used classical summer pastel ingredients with lots of roses, peonies, hydrangeas and seasonal British blooms for a bold contemporary look that blended with the stunning surroundings. The asymmetrical arch at the front is a bold representation of combining strength and beauty through florals; designed to set the trends rather than follow them. The table is set for an intimate celebration with a refined classical look and a contemporary edge to honour the couples' love and devotion to each other.”

Real bride Emma found her dream dress at Harrogate's Bridal Rogue Gallery (www.bridalroguegallery.co.uk/harrogate). “I tried on four gowns in total, falling in love with the Pronovias Elara A-line tulle design,” remembers the bride. “The diamanté sparkles looked like glittering ice on the white dress, and both my mum and step mum cried tears of joy when they saw me in it! I teamed it with a feathered white shawl, cathedral veil with diamanté crystals and a lace and silver leaf hair accessory.”

This is food heaven for me! This cheese tower by www.lovecheese.co.uk at Rebecca and Craig's wedding kept their guests fuelled for the dancefloor. These are a great alternative to a wedding cake for those who don't have a sweet tooth, or indeed a great addition to an evening buffet.
