Frankie and Sim met at University just over a decade ago. After years of great friendship, romance steadily blossomed and last year they decided to tie the knot.
Currently living in Leicestershire, they chose to marry in Sheffield as it’s Frankie’s home city and they share many happy memories here.
Their ceremony was held at The Botanical Gardens, by the Victorian glasshouse amongst floral filled gardens and the tree lined pavilion. They wanted to combine traditions from both sides of the family. The Chimney House celebrated Sheffield’s industrial heritage, with beautiful romantic styling of British florals and a candlelit feast. Their incredible wedding attire was a nod to Sim’s Indian heritage, bringing s richness and traditional Indian Glamour to The Chimney House.
Frankie's outfit was from Pehnava and Sim’s from Ladlee - two Indian outfitters on Belgrave Road, the Golden Mile, in Leicester. Frankie chose to have a traditional style Lehenga in blue, over the traditional red. Sim’s Sherwani suit was also a traditional style in blue and gold, to compliment Frankie's stunning dress.
“Frankie had a mehndi artist apply henna to her hands and feet a couple of days before the wedding. The darker the henna stains the deeper the love! So we were blessed.”
Frankie discovered The Chimney House online - they both fell in love even before stepping foot inside! Shortly after they visited, they booked in and started to plan their beautiful day.
“We were absolutely blown away when we saw the venue on the big day - we knew it was going to look good but you guys took it to another level!”
“Every single one of our guests who we've spoken to since our wedding has said how much they loved the style of The Chimney House and how the layout encouraged everyone from both sides to really get to know each other. That's exactly what we wanted and you guys delivered!”
A total vision of Indian & Yorkshire beauty combined. Thanks for choosing The Chimney House to help celebrate your beautiful day, Frankie & Sim!
