Hi guys, this afternoon's wedding comes to you from a Yorkshire based wedding photographer, Shelly Mantovani of Toast of Leeds.
Dan and Jenny got married on 6th July this year at East Riddlesden Hall in Keighley. I love this wedding for it's cute attention to detail; the his 'n hers table names and the fact the couple cared not a jot that they needed to get their umbrella out and that cute little cake-topper!
"Mum and I made the little cake for the top of the stand and the cake bunting. The tarts were our dessert, supplied by the caterer…"

"Dan and I have been together for eight years and are from the same town – Hebden Bridge, although we live together down in London. Dan proposed on my 30th birthday in Sydney on our world trip…"
Jenny's dress was a David Fielden design that she purchased at a sample sale…
"I was looking for something with a vintage style and loved the 1920's style beading and shape at the neckline…"
"The barn at East Riddlesden Hall was a blank canvas, and we were able to add our own style which is exactly what we were looking for. I’m a graphic designer, so the opportunity to create something that was unique to us was something I jumped at…"
Oh hello cute little 'his n hers' table names!
"Shelly and Paul at Toast of Leeds were our photographers – they are both absolute stars and would recommend them in an instant …"
"We added home made bunting, artwork and photos in frames on the walls, vintage crockery that we collected in charity shops and home made cake stands. My auntie Pat arranged flowers in teapots for our centre pieces and roses in milk bottles…"
"I spotted a picture of a bouquet in a magazine and we worked from that. I wanted something vintage inspired with a mix of muted colours. The bouquet included roses, sweet peas, eucalyptus and rosemary, so it smelled gorgeous…"
"The vintage crockery inspired an overall vintage theme, although we weren’t slaves to a particular era. We went for a mix of colours rather than sticking with a rigid colour theme, but overall I suppose we had a pink feel…"
"I made paper rose rings for the ladies and Dan made chilli Jam for the men – I designed all the packaging to match our theme. We donated £100 to a local hospice instead of expensive favours."
"The band we hired, Agent Smith, were amazing!"
Words of Wedded Wisdom…
"Enjoy every second – it’s over way too fast!"
Ahhh, love this wedding, congratulations Dan and Jenny – and thank you Shelly at Toast of Leeds for sharing these lovely images 😉
