A Pretty, Pastel Wedding, at The Old Lodge Malton - Zoe and Jim


These two planned their day in less than 6 months, with Jim proposing to Zoe around Christmas time 2018. They are young, happy, blissfully in love and could see no reason to wait, so when they were able to book their chosen venue for a midweek celebration they were stoked!

Confetti, madness.

Zoe and Jim styled their day using complimenting pastel colours, choosing to wrap the chairs on each table with either peach, lilac, pastel pink and pale yellow sashes. They even integrated the colours of the candles and roses decorating the candle arbours in the same shades too. The room was tastefully filled with delicate colours, perfect for the time of year.

After getting ready at The Old Lodge with her twin sister, two friends and mother, Zoe was ready for her brother Cameron to walk her down the aisle to meet her sole mate in the gardens of the stunning venue. The looks exchanged throughout the intimate ceremony didn’t lie, and the guests that witnessing them were precious and thoughtfully chosen. Their day was just as they had planned, small, low key but beautiful, with their gathering of friends and a relatives chatting and sipping bucks fizz in the gardens, in the sun and then enjoying a beautiful meal.

When I spoke to Zoe before the wedding I know she’d told me she wasn’t looking forwards to being the centre, so it was surprise to me to find that her favourite moment had been whilst walking down the aisle whilst all eyes were firmly fixed on her and Jim.

Advice to other couples: Make sure your day is exactly how you want it, not how other people might like it to be.
