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.

Getting Personal! A Real Wedding In Yorkshire – Gillian & Michael

November 28th, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

Wedding in Yorkshire by Paul Joseph Photography

.

.

We are in Yorkshire this afternoon for the intimate wedding celebration of Gillian and Michael, with images by Brides Up North Featured Supplier, Paul Joseph Photography

.

Gillian and Michael kept their day to just their nearest and dearest, with a romantic colour palette, plenty of personal touches and one gorgeous dress

.

… found in TKMaxx!  Yes, you read that right.  Kudos.

.

Holdsworth House Wedding by Paul Joseph Photography

.

Gillian says:  While out in Skipton one day on our way for some lunch, we wandered past a jewellers and both just looked at each other and said “Shall we?” then went inside and chose the ring! Having to wait for delivery of the ring in my size, it wasn’t until a week later Michael got down on one knee at Haworth Park, Haworth and asked “Gillian, will you marry me?” and placed it on my finger.

.

.

Yorkshire Wedding by Paul Joseph Photography

.

.

We were married on 17th May 2012 at Holdsworth House Hotel and Restaurant, Halifax.  Having looked at a couple of venues before, nothing really grabbed us but we only had to drive into the car park of Holdsworth House and that was it. I have always loved historic buildings and Holdsworth House felt just perfect.

.

.

Paul Joseph Photography

.

.

I wouldn’t say I had one set theme but rather several intertwined such as shabby chic, rustic and personalised.  Having always been creative I knew I wanted a handmade wedding. My head was buzzing with ideas from the word go and with the help of my daughter, Trudy, we set to work.  We did worry, having never seen such a personalised, handmade occasion that it wouldn’t quite come together but in the end, it was exactly what I envisaged and our guests loved it! 

.

I chose a palette of pinks and lilacs to complement the aubergine bridesmaid gowns.

.

I looked at several bridal shops but couldn’t really find ‘The One’ and with only 6 weeks till the big day I walked into TKMaxx and found my dress. Staff told me it had been delivered that morning so it was as if it was waiting for me! It was a Su Wong Alice in Wonderland design, very vintage inspired, ivory lace. My amazing shoes were a gift from my husband to be from Dune.

.

Michael’s suit was a dark navy, pinstripe ¾ length jacket and trousers with a white shirt and pink tie from Brides 2 Be in Scarlett Heights, Queensbury.

.

.

Paul Joseph Photography

.

.

My three bridesmaids – my two daughters and Michael’s niece – wore aubergine halter neck dresses from Coast and matching grey heels from Marks & SpencerThe best man, Ralph and my son, Oliver, who gave me away, wore matching suits to Michael’s but with aubergine ties to match the girls.

.

.

.

.

My mother in law, Marilyn arranged for my son and I to be picked up in a vintage cream Bentley. It was a beautiful addition to the day and went with the venue perfectly. We hired it through The Wedding Mill in Saltaire.

.

My bouquet was made up of pink avalanche roses, small daisies, pink gerberas with touches of purples and green foliage. The bridesmaids carried smaller versions of my bouquet. I wasn’t really sure of names of flowers I just chose what I liked the look of with the help of my florist, Sarah, at Eastell’s Florist in Shipley.

.

A special touch, courtesy of Michael’s Auntie Andrea was that every guest was given an individual flower as they arrived to wear on the day.

.

I walked down the aisle to Ronan Keating – When You Say Nothing At All – and we finished the ceremony with Queen’s It’s A Kind Of Magic, the song playing in the car when I picked Michael up for our first date!

.

.

.

.

Walking down the aisle to Michael, everyone else in the room was a blur, I was so happy to see him and exchange our vows. I felt as though I was floating.

We added lots of personalised touches such as our memory tree, taken from St.Ives where we walk our dog regularly.  We added our favourite pictures on brown luggage tags and hung them from it and a welcome sign we made from a tree that had been recently felled. My favourite touch was the felt hearts I made from scratch with each guest’s initial on them to put on favour jars.

.

As we wanted a handmade wedding we used lots of places from the high street. The Range was great for getting our favour jars and the craft section for all our bits and bobs. Another great find was our local garden centre, Woodbank Nurseries in Harden. Ebay was fab for finding ribbon and personalised labels.

.

.

Paul Joseph Photography

.

.

Our table plan was a massive hit too! That idea came from Michael always calling me ‘The apple of his eye’ I saw the canvas in TKMaxx and my daughter added the rest!

My daughter created a gorgeous sweetie table as a surprise for us.

Our chair covers came from Yvonne at Covered To Perfection who I found at a wedding fair. She offered a great service and is a lovely person too.

I saw a picture of a cake I liked in a wedding magazine and took it to Netty’s Cakes of Thornton, recommended by my brother in law.  Jeanette listened to my ideas and made the perfect cake just as I had imagined.

Our wedding photographer was Paul of Paul Joseph Photography he captured the day beautifully and really showed off the details of the day in his pictures. Our guests are still commenting on what a lovely person he was on the day.

We didn’t choose to finish our day with a disco and instead we had an extended day with music during our meal which carried on through to the hotel’s bar area. We spent hours putting together a playlist of favourite songs to be played during the day.

.

.

.

.

We left the hotel the following morning to our mini-moon in Windermere. Then in August we went to Disney World Florida!

.

.

Paul Joseph Photography

.

.

My top tip for other Brides Up North would be to try not to stress too much because the day just goes so quickly and everything just falls into place… and remember to let your husband to be know how much you love him as he has put up with your Bridezilla ways for months!

.

.

Paul Joseph Photography

.

.

Congratulations Gillian & Michael!

Dancing Shoes, A Real Wedding – Rachel & Paul

April 26th, 2011 | Julia Braime

.

Brides Up North Featured Supplier Andy Garfitt of Greyeye Photography sent Brides Up North this stunning Real Wedding this Easter weekend.  Better than an Easter egg in my opinion!

.

This is the second wedding to have taken place at Holdsworth House and featured on Brides Up North recently, which just shows how diverse this gorgeous venue can be. Andy and Rachel, today’s beautiful bride, talk us through it…

.

.

Andy Garfitt - Greyeye Photography

.

.

Rachel: Paul and I met in Lincoln and had been together about 8 years before he proposed.  He was hoping to use my car to go and collect the ring but I’d had other ideas and bumped it into a wall so he had to get a train and walk for 2 miles! I’d never thought what our wedding day would be like so spent a small fortune on wedding magazines to get ideas and work out where we wanted to spend the money, they don’t tell you about putting that in the budget!

.

Venue and photography last the longest so they were our priority. We looked at venues first and fell in love with Holdsworth House, who were also the nicest people. Then we looked at photographers-  Andy is a lovely chap who met us at our house with a very, very large bag of wedding albums showing his style of photography, (which was good because we’d met with other photographers who just seemed to be trying to sell fancy albums instead of their skills!) It was just what we wanted, and he was a nice chap which helped as he would be around all day!

.

Andy: Well, I’m not going to argue with that. Rach got ready at her Mum’s house which is just round the corner from where they live, very handy, and we started off there with some very relaxed bridal preparations.

.

.

Andy: Although it all got a bit much for some.

.

.

Andy Garfitt - Greyeye Photography

.

.

Andy: But there’s nothing a banana can’t fix.

.

.

Andy Garfitt - Greyeye Photography

.

.

Andy : Just time for a few detail shots…

.

.

.

.

.

.

Andy: Then on with the dress.

.

Rachel: I got my wedding dress (after trying on a fair few on some of the hottest days of the year) from Emily Bridal on Eccleshall Road in Sheffield, Emily is lovely and knew exactly what would suit me before I did. I didn’t have to trail through rail after rail of dresses, she simply asked what I had tried on and what I didn’t like from what I’d seen, she then picked out 4 for me to try on, the last one being the one I bought.

.

.

Andy Garfitt - Greyeye Photography

.

.

Andy Garfitt - Greyeye Photography

.

.

Rachel: The most exciting purchase for me though was for my wedding shoes, I saw row after row of white and cream shoes and knew I wanted something a little bit special, which is why I opted for 6 inch purple glittery heels (and I had them on most of the day too!!) I found them after seeing Paloma Faith wear some similar ones on a magazine shoot, a few clicks on the internet later and they were being shipped to me from America (I didn’t tell my Gran they were from a burlesque shop at the time!)

.

.

Andy Garfitt - Greyeye Photography

.

.

Rachel: The day itself was a lot calmer then I was expecting, and I was surprisingly calm as well. Everything happened round me, including my young nieces playing, hair being done, doing make-up, toasting some croissants and drinking lots of champagne. I could have been ready hours earlier than I needed to be!

.

Andy: Yep, it all went very smoothly and Rachel looked stunning.

.

.

Andy Garfitt - Greyeye Photography

.

.

.

.

Andy: Paul and the boys were doing pretty well too, apart from the usual confusion over cravats, obviously.

.

.

Andy Garfitt - Greyeye Photography

.

.

Andy Garfitt - Greyeye Photography

.

.

Rachel: There were plenty of giggles (albeit nervous) by the time I got to Holdsworth House so I had to take a few moments to compose myself! There was no rushing about though and everyone at Holdsworth  (especially Tracy the coordinator and Andy of course) were totally in control, which meant I didn’t worry about a thing, I knew they would have everything covered and it didn’t even cross my mind to be bothered about any details.

.

.

Andy Garfitt - Greyeye Photography

.

.

Andy: A few minutes later, you may now kiss the bride. Hurray!

.

.

Andy Garfitt - Greyeye Photography

.

.

Andy: Lots of congratulations over a few drinks and nibbles and then we had chance to do the group shots and some Bride and Groom portraits.

.

.

Andy Garfitt - Greyeye Photography

.

.

.

.

.

.

Andy: Then back into the reception for the speeches and the wedding breakfast.

.

Rachel: We toyed with various ideas for wedding favours as there is plenty of choice out there.  It was Paul who spotted that Cancer Research can provide pin badges and cards as wedding favours for a donation. This was quite apt for us because I had lost my dad to cancer when I was 17 and wanted there to be some way of including him in the day.

.

.

Andy Garfitt - Greyeye Photography

.

.

Andy: Then it was time for the speeches! There were plenty of laughs…

.

.

Andy Garfitt - Greyeye Photography

.

.

Andy: …there may have even been a few tears

.

.

Andy Garfitt - Greyeye Photography

.

.

Andy Garfitt - Greyeye Photography

.

.

Andy: Food scoffed, there was chance for one more quick night time portrait, Paul and Rachel were brave enough to venture out into the cold.

.

.

Andy Garfitt - Greyeye Photography

.

.

Andy: Then it was time to hit the dance floor!

.

Andy Garfitt - Greyeye Photography

.

.

Rachel: Everyone boogied the night away and it may sound like a cliché but it was everything I expected without expecting it! A good day full of family and friends all having a good time…And looking back at the photos it reminds me of the little things I’d forgotten (like cringing at Paul’s embarrassing speech!)

.

.

Andy Garfitt - Greyeye Photography

.

.

Andy: Marvellous!
