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.

One For All The Audrey’s. A Timeless Styled Wedding Inspiration Shoot At Saltmarshe Hall, East Yorkshire

December 9th, 2013 | Julia Braime

Photography By Ally Byrom

Its a bit of a late running start here at Brides Up North this Monday.  I’m taking a little pre-Christmas holiday with my family and baby girl (bliss) and our Wi-Fi coverage seems to be vacationing too (not so much bliss).  Just what a blogger loves – a poor internet connection!

Still, I think we’ve more than made up for the delay with this stunning set of images sent to me by Brides Up North Featured Supplier Photography By Ally Byrom and a collective of fabulous East Yorkshire wedding industry suppliers.  Victoria Farr is another very special lady to grace the Brides Up North Featured Supplier Directory and having seen both her and Harriet Head’s work in person I can vouch for their considerable talents!

So starting late but starting timeless with a beautiful bit of inspiration for your Monday morning.  Classic and chic, this is definitely one for all the Audrey’s out there…

Photography By Ally Byrom

Ally says:  The common thread or purpose of this styled shoot was to showcase what East Yorkshire has to offer.  We firmly believe that there is talent and life beyond the big smoke, hence Brides Up North being our resounding first choice when we decided to share these images, as they were far too good to keep to ourselves!

We are three local suppliers who’ve forged a great bond and work well together.  We complement and inspire each other but most importantly we have fun. We had the opportunity to work with a beautiful Hull girl – Laura Peterson – destined for greatness on the silver screen and a beautiful hitherto undiscovered local stately home who have just opened their doors as a venue. 

With an opportunity like this we rummaged through the yet to be photographed collections from By Harriet and decided to see how much fun we could have in a day.  When classic beauty Laura entered the building, inspiration continued to flow and the shoot grew organically.

The day resulted in beautiful images of three different collections. As an added bonus we even managed to capture a couple of by Harriet’s hats and a sneak peak at the Christobel Circlet from the “Ethereal Dreams” collection, to be photographed soon.

There are those moments in life that prompt you to ask that old question: is this coincidence or is this fate?   In the case of these three creative women, if you didn’t believe in fate before, they may just change your mind…

Saltmarshe Hall is a beautiful, Grade II listed stately home on the River Ouse.  With its light and airy rooms and vast, perfectly manicured gardens, it’s hard to imagine a more romantic or dramatic setting.  Once inside Saltmarshe Hall, it was clear that the library, the orangery and the portico all had something different to offer and it was too good an opportunity to miss from both a product showcasing and photographic viewpoint.

So what brought Harriet, Ally and Victoria together? Where does fate fit into all of this?  Well, they’re all professionals in the wedding industry who just happen to live within a 10 mile radius of each other in East Yorkshire and, unbelievably, never realised it and never met.

Thankfully (via social networking – thank you Facebook!), they finally did and, as you can imagine, when you combine their extensive credentials and experience, something spectacular is surely just around the corner. 

And there’s no reason your wedding can’t resemble these beautiful images, so for more information or to make a booking with either Harriet, Ally or Victoria just follow the links to their web sites.
