Everything You Need To Know

General Info

Date: Saturday 7th Septmeber 2024.

Time: 2pm - 1am.

Dress Code:  Beautifully bold, if you've always wanted to wear that OTT suit/dress/jumpsuit/unitard now is the time - the bolder the better. But really, anything goes, as long as you feel comfortable. 

Venue: Project House Leeds.

Parking: Parking is limited so even if you aren't drinking we would say get an uber/taxi, the venue is v close to the city centre so most Leeds locations will be an affordable taxi ride away.

Train: A 20 minute walk away or 5 minutes in a taxi.

Children: It is a child-free wedding apart from immediate family, however babes in arms are welcome. There will be a quiet, dark room for parents to use. This being said if anyone struggles to get childcare please speak to us. 

RSVP: you need to officially RSVP. 

For out of town friends + family:

Friday: We will be heading to the pub/park (details to follow) Friday afternoon if you fancy joining us. 

Sunday: We have booked out a brunch spot on the Sunday to see you off before your journey home, you are in-formally invited to come along before you head off. You can get yourself some scran before your journey. The RSVP for this is on the RSVP form. 

Useful info: in the spirit of avoiding hanger, we advise you to eat a proper meal sometime before you come to the ceremony. The wedding "breakfast" will be more like early tea and there will be evening food from Little Bao Boy too.

What to Bring

We are, unsurprisingly, having a spiritual service led by our close friend and Juno's Godmother - the magical Frances Hansom. To make the magic happen we would like you to bring:

  • a packet of seeds to grow in our garden, inside the packet add a note for us to plant with the seeds. Write on the note your wishes for our lives together. No curses please. 

  • something from your garden, or a place special to you to throw instead of confetti. The more colourful the better. 

  • something noisy to bash, or blow, or play as we walk back down the aisle. 

We would also like you to:

  • Please send a photo of you and the couple/bride/groom or your fave picture of them to corfputaringonit@gmail.com by the 31st July. 

 

Gifts 

There is nothing physical that we want or need, but if you would like to gift us money to put in our adventure pot we would be really, really grateful. Our adventure pot will pay for us to explore the world, do fun things and get away with our girls. 

You can do cash, cheque or transfer but PLEASE give us a card and let us know so that we can thank you.

We want to emphasise if you are struggling financially we do not expect a gift, the last thing we want is to add to that stress - the most important thing to us is that you are able to come to the do. 

Homemade gifts from our creative pals are always welcome. 

Volunteers

Turns out planning a wedding logistically is quite hard when you have two kids and realistically we need a bit of help. If you are able to help with the following, that would be gorgeous:

  • Looking after the girls the morning of the wedding and getting them ready so Chris can collect them and take them there. 

  • Creative people to help Chris and the Groomsmen dress the venue to Ella's strict brief (LOL) the morning of the wedding.

  • People who don't suffer hangovers to help the Groomsmen pack up first thing Sunday morning - at 8am (hahahaha).
