Alicia & Sam - 29/05/2019

Alicia and Sam’s big day took place at Haarlem Mill on Wednesday the 29th of May 2019. Being in the education industry, they needed to hold their wedding midweek during half term, making our exclusive hire venue perfect for them.

The celebrations started at 10am when Alicia and her bridesmaids arrived to make full use of our gorgeous Bridal Suite. With excitement building, the girls had a chance to chat as they were pampered and prepped by wedding hair expert, Alison Jenner and make-up artist, Jessica Ava. The bride looked breathtaking in her one of a kind dress loving handmade by her step-mum, Ann Knapman - imagine having your very own personal dressmaker!

The ceremony room and banquet hall were dressed like a dream by a fabulous team (rhyme unintentional) - and what a creative family these guys have. In the banquet hall they had a seating plan created by Sam’s cousin at BOOM Creative, they utilised the reclaimed wooden shelving for a sweet stall and created an amazing photo wall using wooden crates, recycled gin bottles and flowers provided by the mum of one of the bridesmaids, very fitting for our industrial style. Mother of the bride made all of the favours (intricate iced biscuits) and personalised them using a stamp purchased from The Red Collar on Etsy, with place cards being created and attached by Alicia and friends. Clearly an amazing baker, Alicia’s mum also made their wedding cake and added a copper lettered cake topper from The Letter Loft UK on Etsy.

Etsy proving to be a real wedding inspiration for the couple, they also purchased a beautifully engraved ring box from The Laser Engraving Co (via the website) which their ring bearer carried down the aisle during the ceremony.

Alongside their talented family the couple also enlisted help from some of our favourite suppliers:

  • All of the stunning floral creations were supplied by Kerry at Tineke

  • Signage for the sweet table, guest book, selfie station and welcome sign were created and provided by BrambleSky

  • The whole day was captured by photographer Rosie Kelly and videographer Kye, working alongside Rosie.

We loved hosting Alicia and Sam and their gorgeous wedding. What a fabulous couple.

Wishing you many happy years of marriage, Team Haarlem x
