This morning I’m thrilled to share this stunning styled shoot in Halifax showing off the creations of one very talented local lady, Rebecca of Rebecca Jagger Millinery & Accessories. And because she’s kind as well as creative, if you like what you see here (and my bet is you will) Rebecca is offering Brides Up North readers an exclusive discount. Rebecca Jagger Millinery & Accessories would like to offer Brides Up North readers an exclusive 10% discount until 28th February 2014. Please quote Brides Up North when contacting Rebecca. Bonus!

Rebecca says: When planning my wedding, I found it very difficult to find the right head piece to compliment my 1930′s style dress. I knew I didn’t want a veil, but couldn’t afford the bespoke prices of a milliner. As a tailor by trade I thought I would have a go at making my own. From this Rebecca Jagger Millinery & Accessories was born.
My designs are completely hand made by me, all hand sewn, meaning each piece is bespoke. I use the most luxurious silks and soft feminine veiling, which give a lovely vintage feel to my pieces.
For my first photo shoot we used the beautiful venue Holdsworth House in Halifax, where we made the most of the gorgeous surroundings. I got to work with some very talented ladies, and we got fabulous photographs.
Nicola says: Our inspiration for the shoot was a vintage 1920′s glamour, the setting was beautiful and the model was amazing, even through the cold and the rain! As a team, we have another shoot planned for the spring, just waiting for the weather to cheer up first…
I have been a photographer for many years, but it is only within the last two years that I decided to take the leap to set up my own business. I love covering weddings that are a little bit different, quirky or unusual and my style is quite informal and relaxed. I like to capture the essence of the day in a way that complements the Bride and Groom. Alongside weddings, I still work on personal projects and have an exhibition in the pipeline due for April.

Frustrated by the poor Northern presence in glossy bridal magazines and online, she decided to do something about it herself. Astounded by the rapid growth of her blog and brand, Julia now manages Brides Up North’s online content alongside their busy wedding exhibition season, industry events and related commissions. And she’s always, always, got a new project on the go…
