Tea For Two. A 1940s Wedding Inspiration Shoot At Denton Hall, Ilkley

July 16th, 2014 | Julia Braime

Its a pretty pop of nostalgia and romance at one of my very favourite venues this afternoon on the blog.

Brides Up North Featured Supplier Sarah of Leafy Couture got in touch to tell me about an authentic little bridal shoot that took place earlier this summer at Denton Hall in Ilkley.  With original 1940s bridal attire and military uniforms, a stunning setting and some carefully classic styling, I couldn’t help but share.

Suzy says: Quite some time ago make up artist  Annabel Bailey and I discussed collaborating on a styled shoot – our ideas went through different incarnations but in the end, after a trip to Glory Days Vintage in York and chatting to Hayley the owner, we decided upon a late 1940′s bridal shoot. 

We certainly had some fun with it, not least because Annabel’s Grandfather had fought in the Second World War and she had access to the collection of his uniforms!

Denton Hall was the perfect choice as a backdrop to our shoot. It is a fabulous example of Georgian architecture, set in 2,500 acres of parkland and landscaped gardens. All of us have come to know Hannah Bairstow at Denton Hall over the years and she so kindly facilitated our use of the Hall, helping everything to run smoothly.

The lace wedding dress, veil and pink dress all came from Glory Days Vintage in York; Annabel and I drove over to York on a hot sunny day in June and had the best time with Hayley choosing props and clothing for the shoot. Her boutique is full of vintage finds and so worth a visit if you are looking for a vintage wedding dress.

Our friend Sarah Richardson of Leafy Couture in Otley produced a delicate bouquet with a flavour of the era and table arrangements to match the style of the shoot.

Our great friends at Iain Henderson Designs, makers of bespoke handmade engagement and wedding rings supplied the wedding rings and Barry Nuttall of Classic Wedding Car Hire in Skipton had just the perfect car.

Beth, owner of By Betty, provided fabulous hats to match the vintage dresses for the tea party which took place inside the Hall (as opposed to on the lawn as planned) due to the inclement weather. The dresses and hats complimented each other so well.

You might have thought that early June would have brought beautiful sunny weather! It was sun all the way in the early morning but by the time shooting began we were soaked! The rain meant that we couldn’t shoot as extensively as we would have wished but the light was fantastic. A special thanks to Nicole and Alex our models and also to my dear friend Andrea Pickering for her invaluable assistance in getting through the shots in a short space of time due to the antics of the weather.

On Ilkley Moor: A Custom Made Gown & Beautiful Blooms For A Real Wedding At Denton Hall – Meredith & Leigh

Meredith says:  We’ve been together over 11 years and we knew we’d eventually get married – we just had to get the timing right! Last January while on holiday in Sri Lanka we went to a jeweller I had wanted to visit. While we were designing a ring for me Leigh asked, ‘Do you have any wedding-like bands that will match it?’ He then looked at me and said, ‘Well, might as well get the engagement ring and the wedding band together!’ So, not an official on- the-knee-will-you-marry-me proposal, but we were both over the moon none the less! We were officially engaged!

We were married on March 2nd 2013 at Denton Hall, Ilkley, West Yorkshire.  We fell in love with Denton Hall instantly and knew our guests would, too! Aside from its obvious beauty and gorgeous grounds, it was ideal as we could hold the ceremony and reception all onsite – not to mention it provided enough accommodation for all of our family and friends! It was exclusively ours for the weekend and we could relax and entertain our family and friends hassle free. It was perfect.

We tried to keep in mind ‘elegant, relaxed, and fun’ when planning the wedding weekend. Friday night we had a BBQ catered by Box Tree Events for all the guests as well as a ceilidh band – it set the perfect relaxed atmosphere for everyone to get to know each other as half of our guests were from the UK and the other half flew in from America. By Saturday, everyone was mingling and dancing away like they were old friends!

.

For Friday night we went with colourful spring flowers, and for the actual wedding on Saturday in an attempt to pay homage to Denton Hall we chose a Georgian scheme of burgundy, light sage, charcoal, and ivory.

I had my gown custom-made for me by Bridal Apparel in Rawdon. I live in Singapore and was having trouble finding a dress that I actually liked and would fit me. I had an idea in my head of what I wanted (ivory, v-neck, ruching, no bling) and it was proving fruitless in Singapore. When visiting the UK last April for one of our best men’s wedding his bride suggested Bridal Apparel as that was where she got her gown and it fit her beautifully.

.

I went there the next day and I’m so happy I did. Susan and Jodie completely understood what I wanted, and even more importantly understood my shape and what would be most flattering. So, we designed my gown one afternoon and then I flew back to Singapore not to return the UK until December for a brief visit. That meant that they’d have from May to December to make my gown, I’d try it on in December, then I’d be back less than a week before my wedding for final alterations. Because I completely trusted Susan I knew the gown would be great and I wasn’t worried at all. Sure enough, it was everything I had envisioned and was hand delivered to the Bridal Suite at Denton Hall Friday night. I also got my shoes from them: simple satin pleated courts –perfect for the gown, and hired my stunning side tiara from them!

.

I also had a reception dress that I changed into after the first dance; I wanted something fun and completely different from my gown! It was a white strapless chiffon short/long dress I found while visiting California in November. I wore 6 inch platforms with crystals with this dress (well, the platforms lasted about 20 minutes then I was rocking out barefoot!).

Sarah from Leafy Couture is the flower whisperer! I told her I wanted ‘Simple, white, not too big, stems showing.’ She made me exactly that: a beautiful white ranunculus bouquet hand tied with ivory satin and a few accent crystals.

I didn’t have any bridesmaids, but Leigh had two best men and two ushers. They all wore traditional morning suits that we hired from Bridal Apparel as well. They all looked so dapper and handsome!

Our reading was ‘A Lovely Love Story’ by Edward Monkton, which is about dinosaurs. While getting ready in the Bridal Suite I was surprised to find a couple of dinosaurs –how did they mysteriously get there? After the ceremony I learned that my friend that did the reading snuck them in there as a surprise. I love that they made it into the photographs!

I seriously couldn’t have planned and executed the wedding without Andrea Swift from Fabulous Day wedding planning. I always had complete confidence in her throughout the entire process. I even felt guilty at times as though she was doing all the work and all Leigh and I had to do was show up to a fantastic wedding!

Box Tree Events took care of all the food and everyone was completely blown away not only by the quality and deliciousness of the food, but also it’s presentation as well as the professionalism of their staff. Rena and Simon Gueller and Michelle Hudson are certainly the best at what they do: Box Tree Events and Denton Hall are a match made in heaven.

.

Steve and Hannah at Denton Hall were so accommodating and really made us feel at home for the weekend. Nothing was too much trouble for them.

Gary Micklethwaite was our photographer. Gary and Heidi were so much fun! We love the way they were able to capture the weekend in such a natural way. We never even knew they were there –they were ninja photographers! We were amazed when we saw how gorgeous the photos turned out.

Cornerstone Cinema looked after the videography of ceremony and speeches and stop motion of Friday night and all of Saturday. Wow, wow, wow! Gary told us about Cornerstone Cinema wanting to do a stop motion piece of a wedding and asked if we would be interested as it would be their first official stop motion piece (though they have done tons of traditional videography). As Gary was describing stop motion we grew more and more excited and exclaimed, ‘Where do we sign?!’ Needless to say, we are beyond ecstatic with the results. It really captures the love, energy, and fun of the day and we feel like we’re reliving it everything we watch it.  Click here to see the finished film.

Because we had a number of guests flying in from overseas, we wanted to put together a welcome bag with local stuff for that was waiting for them in their rooms when they checked in. In a heart covered hessian bag from British Heart Foundation we included handmade chocolates from Patisserie Viennoise, Yorkshire Crisps, English Heritage Hangover Drops, a Yorkshire-English dictionary, bottled water, and umbrellas. We had the most incredible weather that weekend so they never even needed the umbrellas!

Leafy Couture made my flower dreams come true. Sarah provided the most beautiful flowers and centrepieces. I was sorry that I couldn’t take any home with me on Sunday but our guests that did said they were still looking great a week later!

Patisserie Viennoise in Otley made us the most scrumptious cake ever. It was vanilla sponge with vanilla buttercream and raspberry, and a vanilla buttercream frosting. The cake was so moist and the buttercream was so creamy! Naturally we served it Saturday night, but we also provided slices in takeaway boxes to guests as they checked out on Sunday. We also got out favours from them: handmade chocolate truffles!

Hipswing provided The Sturdy Beggars, the ceilidh band Friday night, John King, the guitarist who played during the ceremony and drinks reception, DJ Craig for dancing the night away, the sparkling LED dance floor, and the lighting. We couldn’t have been more pleased with everything they provided and would use them again in a heartbeat.

.

In the evening, we also had a caricaturist – Mick Hollinworth. We had a comfort break after dinner in the bar for about an hour and a half, and Mick was drawing caricatures of our guests the entire time. I don’t think the poor guy stopped for a single minute. He was great!

.

.

.

.

Leigh says he doesn’t like to dance so we agreed not to do a first dance. The music had just started and my girlfriends and I were dancing. All of a sudden the DJ said something towards the extent of, ‘…the bride has no idea…’ and the next thing I knew, the floor cleared and Leigh surprised me with our first dance! Yippee!

.

.

(c) Gary Micklethwaite Photography

.

.

I have a few favourite parts of the day!  When I entered the ceremony and saw everyone’s smiling faces then I saw Leigh’s smiling face at the end of the aisle, having the dining room filled with laughter during the speeches, our first dance to ‘It Must Be Love’ by Madness, waking up Sunday morning in the Bridal Suite as husband and wife and munching on the wedding cake Andrea had left us as a surprise (we didn’t notice it on Saturday night when we got to the room)!

.

.

.

.

After the wedding we spent a few days up in the Lake District, and then went to Tuscany for a week.

.

.

.

.

I have two tips for other Brides Up North. The first is to hire a professional planner that you have complete confidence in, and the second is don’t forget what the whole wedding thing is about. Because of Andrea the entire wedding from planning to Sunday morning was completely stress-free and relaxed.

.

I never put pressure on myself expecting the wedding weekend to be perfect without any hiccups. I adopted the mind-set of, ‘If we have family and friends, booze, food, and a registrar to marry us, nothing else matters.’ And, it’s completely true! Ironically, the weekend ended up being perfect. It was the best weekend ever and I married the love of my life. 

.

.

Congratulations Meredith & Leigh!

Freeze Frame: A Stop Motion Wedding Film For A Pretty Real Wedding At Denton Hall – Meredith & Leigh

April 23rd, 2013 | Julia Braime

.

Meredith & Leigh Stop Motion Wedding from James Pearson on Vimeo.

.

I’ll be back later on with all the images and details for this beautiful Real Wedding at Denton Hall, Yorkshire, coordinated by a fantastic group of Brides Up North Featured Suppliers, including Andrea from Fabulous Day, Leafy Couture and Box Tree Events, but first I wanted to share this amazing little stop motion wedding film with you. 

.

Meredith, our bride, was a real fan of Brides Up North during the planning process (Hello Meredith!  We love you too!) and writes: I have to tell you how surreal and flattering it is that you are interested in my wedding! I’ve spent much of the past year oogling your website and to think you liked it makes me blush.  Now I believe that every wedding is beautiful, but when a big day is as pretty as Meredith and Leigh’s was, how could we not feature it on these pages?  Blush away Meredith!

.

I usually favour images over film – and yes, we didn’t have a wedding video at our own wedding, and yes, I do hugely regret that – but wedding videography has suddenly got so snazzy and slick (see this interview with Brides Up North Featured Supplier Story Of Your Day) and this little film by Cornerstone Cinema is just so quirky and cute, I felt it would be shameful if it were lost in a larger feature. 

.

Enjoy this genius little production, and watch out for those purple dragons!
