Mike and Tanya served afternoon tea at their picture-perfect Northumberland wedding.

Tanya Griffiths, 31, married Michael Johnson, 34, at Healey Barn on the 23rd June, 2018.

Tea party: Image 1
Healey Barn is perfect in every way, from its views and high ceilings to its old wooden beams. What's not to love?

 

Tea party: Image 2aWhen I finally found my dress, I looked in the mirror and cried. I felt a million dollars and could picture myself walking down the aisle – and I knew Mike would love me in it.

Tea party: Image 2 My wedding bouquet incorporated dusky pink roses, pale pink peonies, double white lizzy, ranunculus, white wax flower and a mix of cinn and populus.

Mike and his groomsmen looked incredibly handsome in their blue suits and blush ties, with Mike wearing a tweed waistcoat to stand out.

The bridemaids' gowns were one of my first purchases – blush pink maxi dresses with lace and diamanté embellishment on the front.

 

Tea party: Image 5aTo complement our rustic barn feel, we served our guests afternoon tea for the wedding breakfast. It went down a storm, as it was so laid-back and relaxed.

Tea party: Image 5 Our semi-naked cake was decorated with real flowers to match my bouquet. Its carrot, millionaire shortbread and raspberry ripple tiers were the best I've ever tasted!

 

Tea party: Image 6
I felt like a princess arriving at the venue in our vintage car, and I will always remember sitting in the back seats with my dad.

 

Tea party: Image 7aMy make-up artist, Zoe, nailed my wedding day look. She was so patient with me at my trials, as I wanted everything to be perfect for the big day.

Tea party: Image 7 Mike and I wanted to keep our guests entertained throughout the day so had a singer for our drinks reception and a live band perform in the evening.

Our wedding photographers were amazing. Christina and Nigel are two of the nicest people you'll ever meet, which really put us at ease on the day.
