Wuthering Heights. An Atmospheric Styled Vintage Bridal Shoot In Yorkshire

March 31st, 2014 | Julia Braime

Wooden Hill Images

I’m putting this feature together late on Mothering Sunday after a blissful day full of cuddles, friends, family, flowers, roast dinners and blackberry crumble.  Baby in bed and fire on, I’m curled up in a snug corner at my own Mum’s house with my laptop, and getting ready for the week ahead. 

Sunday nights are usually reserved for a steaming bath and a good book, but busy schedules always call for a bit of a catch up and putting today’s post together has been just lovely.  These beautiful, creative images sent to me by friend of the wedding blog Abi from Wooden Hill Images are more like editorial art than your typical styled bridal shoot, and curating this selection has been like stepping into the pages of a Bronte favourite. 

Enjoy. 

Wuthering Heights from Sarah MacVean on Vimeo.

Abi says:  Since much of my work draws inspiration from literature, I decided for my annual bridal inspiration shoot to choose one of my favourite books, Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights, a classic love story.

Wooden Hill Images

The aim was to inspire a bride to expand their ideas and be creative. I wanted to create a shoot that told a story that would do this and allow a viewer lose themselves in another world for a time, drawing loosely from the book to capture the essence of the character of Cathy and portray the eerie and yet quintessentially beautiful atmosphere.

I initially approached Jane from Wedding and Events Floral Design who immediately understood and loved the idea. Not long after Bex Brides, Love Hair and Beauty Boutique and MacVean Videography came on board and through the means of a highly useful Pinterest board everyone was able to gather exactly what the feel of the shoot would be…

The shoot was going to take place on a misty, atmospheric sunrise in the heart of the Yorkshire Moors but as the day approached we realised we had chosen the sunniest day of the year so far! So we abandoned until sunset, meaning there was no hurry with the hair and makeup – and we all got a lie in!

Love Hair & Beauty fulfilled the brief perfectly. Makeup for an English beauty with a beautiful weathered look, rosy cheeks and tumbling locks and unkempt styling.  Lindsey our model isn’t a professional model, as I like to ask ‘real women’ to model where I can and as soon as I saw her I knew she had exactly the look that we were after.

The outfit was actually a few different looks, Victoriana blouses, a hessian belt with a vintage cameo and the bespoke skirt which I made with a thousand pins, metres of different muslins and nets and Jane kindly stitched was testament that sometimes you can create something totally unique yet beautiful. The cape, again from Bex Brides brought the outfit alive, and I’m definitely hoping to see more brides with cloaks and capes!

For the brides out there reading this – a bride doesn’t always HAVE to wear a white dress!  Look to the past, draw influence from things that mean something to you, be individual.

L.O.V.E. Hearts & Flowers For A Dreamy Styled Bridal Shoot By The Wedding Collective, Liverpool

March 6th, 2014 | Julia Braime

Glorybox Photography & Creative Imaging

This afternoon we are getting lovely in Liverpool as we share this pretty styled shoot sent to me by Emma of Glorybox Photography & Creative Imaging and her team of talented local industry suppliers.  Isn’t it dreamy?

Now I’ve just got to figure out how I can incorporate a wall of hearts into my interior decorating…

Be inspired!

Glorybox Photography & Creative Imaging

Emma says:  This wedding inspiration shoot was put together by The Wedding Collective, a group of independent business women in Liverpool.

I worked with owner of Craft Creative, Becky Christian, and bespoke fashion designer, Kirsty Doyle to bring together some of Liverpool’s most talented and respected wedding industry entrepreneurs. The idea was to not only contribute to an editorial shoot but to create new relationships with go-getters in the city and beyond. We looked at it as a chance to encourage diversity and collaboration in our work and most importantly use each other’s talents and contacts to generate business in the future. We are now one of the city’s go-to services for wedding curation. We have all bases covered when it comes to planning your big day.

The shoot was fantastic. The sky was a magnificent clear blue and the sun was really warm even though the air itself carried a chill. Our models Carly and Jakob had never met each other before so being put on the spot really helped them break the ice. We managed to have loads of fun throughout the day and even into the night when we made use of The Isla Gladstone’s band stand with our 3ft light up letters and a few long exposures.

Glorybox Photography & Creative Imaging

Becky from Craft Creative, a craft based events, workshop and design company was the driving force behind the shoot and she wowed everybody with her hand made props and wedding decorations. Her altar which was made from logs was adorned with a pretty love heart tassel curtain and her light up love letters really made the night time shine.

Kirsty Doyle designed and produced a range of bridal one offs especially for the shoot.  Kirsty always works in 3D, and each garment is toiled and worked into on the mannequin. This allows each dress to be completely unique. The inspiration is always classic tailoring with contemporary finish and fabrics. Kirsty didn’t want the gowns to be traditional, but also wanted to create a collection for any style of wedding, from the country to town halls!

Enola Rose was our milliner. A Liverpool favourite, she created one off works of head-wearable art to compliment Kirsty’s dress designs.

Gieves & Hawkes, The Met Quarter, Liverpool were kind enough to dress our groom and we think you’ll agree, he looked dashing.

Hannah from Hannah Loves Cake offered up a gorgeous Love Heart inspired tiered wedding cake which was the most gorgeous looking thing we had ever seen and our lovely confectioners at The Albion Bakehouse brought along all things sugar coated.  They really did taste as good as they looked!

One of Liverpool’s most knowledgeable and talented florists Heather from Flower Fashion set down some stunning table designs, bouquets and button holes which really brought the day to life.

Lili Bizarre, Little Hardman Street, Liverpool supplied us with a beautiful pink love heart balloon which really complimented our chosen colour palette of pinks, reds and ivory with a splash of gold.

The images were shot and edited by the team at Glorybox Photography & Creative Imaging. Glorybox are a creative photography company based in Liverpool and operating country wide.

With big thanks to The Isla Gladstone, Stanley Park, Liverpool for giving us access to the space for the day. An amazing venue with boundless potential, the most stunning natural light and a gorgeous summery vibe, even in the middle of winter.

Makin’ Rainbows. A Cute & Colourful Styled Wedding Shoot In Northumberland

February 28th, 2014 | Julia Braime

Adamskii Photography for Emma Bunting at Alnwick Garden

On Monday I featured an ethereal and romantic styled shoot showing off the gorgeous designs of Claire Pettibone at The Alnwick Garden (want to see? Click here to catch up).  Now it seems that the team involved are so skilled that they had time to turn the day on it’s head and produce a second shoot – something completely different – to show off Brides Up North Featured Supplier Emma Bunting’s skills (she makes beautiful bunting, like her name suggests)!

Bright, bold, a little whimsical and a lot of colourful.  I talk about talent all the time here at Brides Up North, but it just goes to show that whatever your style, these wedding professionals have it covered. 

Let’s infuse this Friday morning with rainbows!

Adamskii Photography for Emma Bunting at Alnwick Garden

Emma says:  I was given permission to use The Alnwick Garden whilst it was closed to the public to shoot Emma Bunting’s new Rainbow range. I wanted a fun and slightly offbeat look for a relaxed bride and groom – I think we achieved that with the look of our models and the quirky style. 

I hope you like our colourful creations and pick up some bright and beautiful ideas for your own big day. 

Adamskii Photography for Emma Bunting at Alnwick Garden

Emma Bunting and her team will be exhibiting at The Brides Up North Luxury & Vintage Wedding Exhibition at The Alnwick Garden on Sunday 18th May 2014. A beautiful, excusive event in an extraordinary setting.  Closing our spring season for 2014, it’s set to be a magical day.  Be inspired!

Back To Nature. Claire Pettibone For A Styled Bridal Shoot At The Alnwick Garden, Northumberland

February 24th, 2014 | Julia Braime

Adamskii Photography for Kathryn S Trueman at The Alnwick Garden

This season, I am told by those who really know, it’s all about “the back”. 

One someone who certainly knows these things is Kathryn at Kathryn S Trueman Bridal & Occasions in Morpeth, Northumberland, and today she’s here on the wedding blog to show off the latest collection from the newest designer to be stocked in her lovely boutique (and one of my personal favourites!) Claire Pettibone.

With ethereal imagery by the fabulous Adamskii Photography, and shot on location at Brides Up North Luxury Wedding Exhibition venue, The Alnwick Garden, this is one beautiful way to start the week.

Kathryn says:  Claire Pettibone are an L.A. based design house best known for their intimate, feminine and couture styling. Claire describes herself as a ‘true romantic’ and her vintage, yet modern dresses certainly have that “je ne sais quoi”!  .

Adamskii Photography for Kathryn S Trueman at The Alnwick Garden

"When I design a collection I strive to make a woman feel as special as the delicate creation she is wearing; take her to an enchanted time and place where women are princesses and magnificent goddesses. In today’s modern world we need to pause and indulge in beauty." Claire Pettibone

Adamskii Photography for Kathryn S Trueman at The Alnwick Garden

My team at Kathryn S Trueman Bridal decided to celebrate becoming the only stockist of Claire Pettibone in the North East of England by having an exclusive photo shoot of the dresses at the exquisite Alnwick Garden in January this year.

Adamskii Photography for Kathryn S Trueman at The Alnwick Garden

We wanted to find a setting that mirrored the Claire Pettibone styling, and where better than on our own doorstep, at the Alnwick Garden and it’s magnificent Treehouse Restaurant?

Back in January, Alnwick Garden was closed to the public, yet we were granted access for this shoot. We started off around the magnificent Fountains and the Poison Garden, before moving over to the Treehouse – somewhere that Adam has wanted to use for a fashion shoot for years – and finally ending up in the Walled Gardens. The dresses made the shoot, and the models were fantastic – we wanted a certain ethereal innocence to shine through; ‘Alice In Wonderland meets Narnia’!

Coming In From The Cold. A Styled Bridal Shoot At Styal Lodge, Cheshire

February 4th, 2014 | Julia Braime

Lucy Greenhill Photography

After the excitement of my big announcement this morning (miss it? click here to catch up) we’re staying in the North West for the whole day on the wedding blog, and this afternoon we join a bevy of Cheshire lovelies as they collaborate on this warming styled bridal shoot at Styal Lodge.

To introduce the shoot, Laura of Laurel Weddings says:  We decided that one of my favourite venues; Styal Lodge in Cheshire, with its warn interior tones, contrasting against the chilly day, would be ideal to give everyone involved the opportunity to show their creativity and bring their own individual style to the shoot. With such a blank canvas to work with and in consultation with my good friend Francesca from Cheshire Cat Cake Company, we agreed that metallic silver and gold would work really well.

We were fortunate to have three beautiful models, each with their individual look, showcasing a variety of products and styles within the overall theme.  Despite the best efforts of the Cheshire weather, we managed to fit in a few shots in the wintery gardens, with the balance taken in the warmth of the barn itself.
Our photographer for the shoot Lucy Greenhill of Lucy Greenhill Photography, did a fantastic job and
using her photographer’s eye, pulled together an cohesive collection of images.

Memoirs Of A Ballerina. A Styled Shoot By White Memoirs

January 30th, 2014 | Julia Braime

Tim Simpson Photography

Yesterday, I shared a beautiful shoot to share the designs of milliner Rebecca Jagger, and it just so happens that Rebecca’s work (which she is offering at a 10% discount to Brides Up North readers until the end of February – click here) is shown off in this styled shoot too, sent to me by Rachael, Brides Up North Featured Supplier and owner of The Social Butterfly

As well as telling you all about out own amazing events we also like to share carefully selected diary dates from our sponsors and friends that we think might interest our discerning readers.  I’ve already told you about The Social Butterfly’s forthcoming event on 16th February 2014, and this is a styled shoot devised by the exhibitors at that event to show you a little of what they are all about. For full details of the event, see my original post here. 

Tim Simpson Photography

Meanwhile, I’ll allow Rachael to set the mood:  Alone in her dressing room, a ballerina waits for her beau. Gazing at her perfect porcelain reflection in a handheld vintage mirror, she anticipates his arrival.  She lights the room with candles and puts her favourite record, 1920’s French jazz. Gently parting her lips, smiling with her eyes, she remembers their last romantic rendezvous in Paris.

Tim Simpson Photography

Taking the time to re-read his anecdotes of affection and to appreciate his lavish yet so thoughtful gestures a single dipped rose, an elegant pair of pearl droplet earrings and a jewel encrusted neck collar, her heart beats faster as his approach becomes nearer.

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. 

Nicola Mackrill for Rebecca Jagger Milinery & Accessories

Nicola Mackrill for Rebecca Jagger Milinery & Accessories

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.

The Vintage Garden. A Contemporary Styled Bridal Shoot In Lancashire

January 23rd, 2014 | Julia Braime

CT Images

This morning we are bringing vintage styling up to date with a modern beauty twist as we join a collective of North West wedding industry suppliers for a last wedding breakfast at a Lancashire landmark venue. 

Alison McMath will be just one of our fabulous suppliers at our Brides Up North Luxury & Vintage Bridal Exhibitions in the North West this Spring, make sure to put the date in your diary and pre-register now! 

Cheshire 2014

But back to today’s action first.  Cat of CT Images says:  We are an all female wedding industry team in the Lancashire area and we wanted to play around with concepts of ‘vintage’ and bringing the past up-to-date.

CT Images

CT Images

The shoot took place as the last pictures ever to be taken at Pickerings Country Hotel in Garstang, which has been the setting for numerous weddings over the years. The overgrown English country and apple-laden garden became the backdrop for the autumn shoot.

CT Images

We wanted to demonstrate that contemporary hair and makeup styling can give vintage bridal gowns a new lease of life, freeing them of any constraints. The hairstyles took inspiration from different past eras and were all linked together with a more contemporary and daring bridal makeup style. Definitely more adventurous but still in keeping with beauty and romance, which is what every bride desires on her wedding day.

Snow White. A Styled Bridal Inspiration Shoot In Lancashire

January 6th, 2014 | Julia Braime

Julie Lomax Photography

Today’s stunning winter bridal inspiration shoot – sent to me by friend of the wedding blog Julie Lomax Photography is part of a larger set of images – but my edit has been specifically chosen to reflect the beauty and elegance of white on white winter wedding styling.  With her dark pixie cut and bright blue eyes (and that pop of sparkling red) our fur hooded model reminds me of Disney’s snow white, and maybe that’s why I find today’s feature especially magical.
