The summer wedding of Patrick and Katrina has a sweet vintage, village hall vibe and took place in their local community so they’ll always be reminded of their special day setting.

They chose an afternoon tea menu for their reception, with delicate culinary treats served on charming old-fashioned crockery. Add to that the bunting and fairy lights strung from the rafters, a homemade cake table showcasing mouth-watering treats baked by talented family and friends – and even a cheese table in the evening – and you have a wonderful, personal day that reflects Katrina and Patrick’s wedding wishes perfectly.

And the dress is rather dreamy, too!

katrina says: We got engaged in December 2016. I cycled home from work on a dark, rainy, Friday night. As I pulled into our road, I noticed that my car had been moved from the road onto our drive, which was a bit unusual. As I pulled closer, I noticed there was a note tucked under the windscreen and my heart sank, thinking one of the neighbours must have been complaining about my car being in the way. I couldn’t bear to open it but Patrick was inside waiting for me and he urged me to read it. Inside it said, “Katrina, seeing as this all started three years ago with a note on your car, it seemed only right that this should also be a note. Will you marry me?”

We got married on 29th July 2017. Neither of us wanted a long engagement and Patrick is a teacher, so this coincided with the start of the school holidays.

Our ceremony was at Sale Town Hall, as we wanted it to be in our local community and somewhere we would pass regularly. Our reception took place at Mobberley Victory Hall. We wanted the reception venue to be beautiful, low key and to allow us to do our own thing with it.

The old-fashioned approach to a wedding appealed to us, so we went for a natural, handmade, rustic and vintage look with involvement from family and friends.

I wore a Brighton Belle dress. I wanted a knee-length dress, as I liked the idea of being able to move around freely and dance.

My bridesmaids wore pale grey lace dresses from John Lewis.

Patrick and his best man wore beautiful blue suits, which were also from John Lewis.

shiny happy people. an osh gosh gowns styled bridal shoot at rise hall

February 10th, 2017 | Alexis Forsyth

Today’s styled wedding shoot spotlights two stunning bridal collections from a boutique in North Lincolnshire.

One look boasts a retro rock-chick vibe while the other delivers a pared back dose of vintage glam, but they do have one thing in common – they focus on the stacks of fun that’s to be had on your special day.

A collaboration between Richard and Christine of Kazooieloki Photography and Osh Gosh Gowns – the photo shoot took place in the spectacular setting of Rise Hall in Yorkshire.

It has to be said, sometimes such a majestic and polished backdrop can be overwhelming, but as this shoot perfectly showcases – with a little imagination (and a few props!) – you really can make your wedding venue whatever you want it to be.

christine says: We initially met with Wendy Ashton, owner of Osh Gosh Gowns in Scunthorpe (one of North Lincolnshire’s leading bridal suppliers) in early October where we discussed the idea of a joint collaboration, and we soon realised something quite exciting could happen.

Wendy’s vision from the very beginning was to create a shoot in the image of her belief that a wedding day should be fun and full of smiles. This was something we quickly jumped on board with, because although we love our art, our documentary style of photography captures so many natural, happy, real moments. Wendy was looking at expanding her business in to Yorkshire and with us being from Hull – we teamed up to work our magic.

The shoot promoted Osh Gosh Gowns’ incredible Brighton Belle by True Bride range of superb vintage styled T length dresses and also the super stylish 2017 Morilee by Madeline Gardner range.

These two very different styles gave us two distinct styling ideas. For the Brighton Belle dress, we instantly thought of the Brighton seafront Mods and Rockers theme, which perfectly suited the vintage dress design, so we decided on shooting the brides on classic Lambrettas.

As for the Morilee range – what else could we do but something stylish, simple and elegant?

The photo shoot took place at the beautiful Rise Hall, which needs no introduction. Rise Hall was made famous by Sarah Beeny, who restored this magnificent building to its former glory as part of a Channel 4 series in 2010 called Beeny’s Restoration Nightmare. It is now a premier wedding venue in East Yorkshire.

Our hard working collective excelled on creating a look that was superb and exactly what we were looking for.

Make-up artist Natalie Kate created quite a natural, understated beauty look for our brides that worked beautifully with their more extravagant accessories and hairstyles.

Xandria’s Hair, meanwhile, done a fantastic job creating classic dos with a retro twist – the gorgeous blonde beehive was one of our favourites on the day.
