I'm such a huge, huge admirer of Photographer Brett Harkness. Brett's work featured recently on Love My Dress, as he was commissioned to photograph a collection for vintage clothing and accessories supplier, 'Love Miss Daisy', which I swooned over muchly!

Today I'd like to feature one of the exclusive weddings that Brett has the pleasure of capturing on camera every year.  This is the wedding of Hayley and Danny, who tied the knot on 4 June this year at Leeds Town Hall, and followed with a reception and celebrations at The Holiday Inn Hotel at Tong Village, Tong, Bradford…

Hayley's pretty grecian style wedding dress was a Forever Yours design, that was purchased from Farsley Brides

"I had seen a dress on a photographers website of a real bride who wore a David Fielden Dress which cost £2,300. The style was exactly what I had in mind but totally over budget! Therefore, I started to trawl the internet for a second hand one and other local boutiques to find one similar! After going to The Farsley Bridal I found this one. A Forever Yours dress which cost £550.00. The grecian informal style of the dress is what I loved about it! The Chiffon material flowed so well and I knew it was THE ONE as soon as I tried it on!"

Hayley had her makeup applied by a friend, but hired a professional Hair stylist (Hair by Zoe, telephone 07708 535726). 

"My friend applied Clinique Staytrue foundation and Clinique bronzer, also Benefit Bad Gal Mascara (The best ever!!)"

Hayley's lovely headband was by Beady Eyes Designs and she borrowed her diamond cuff from a friend…

"I had got my inspiration for my wedding from looking at some Ibiza style weddings in Ibiza… I loved the laid back illusion roses from the start and new I wanted a rough looking bouquet as apposed to a neat, perfect one…"

"My mother in law made the cake and I decorated it with real shells that I had collected over the months…. I had seen this cake on an Ibiza wedding on the internet and absolutely new this was the perfect cake for our wedding…"

"I had bought some stainless steel lanterns for the table centres and decorated these with candles and shells. I got them from Ikea and they were £14.99 each (bargain!).  The florist arranged flower heads in buckets to decorate the room also.
As favours for the women i had scented chocolate candles in the shape of cakes (from amazon)…"

Words of Wisdom…

"To all brides to be out there!! Enjoy the planning (this is so important) as it is all over so quickly and everything which you have been doing for the last year (maybe 2!) is so important!

On the day, cherish every moment as in my case, I was so stressed in the morning and before I knew it, it was the end of the day and all over with. It was the best day of my life and all the stressful planning came together.

Good luck!!!"

Awww, wise and lovely words indeed Hayley! Congratulations to you and Danny and thank you so very much to Brett Harkness for allowing the reproduction of these beautiful photographs on Love My Dress.

Happy Friday all! :)
