Ladies, the weekend is upon which means it’s almost time to fill up your glass and let your hair down, but before you clock off we’re bringing you a beautifully soft and subtle styled shoot captured at one of our stunning Sponsor venues, Saltmarshe Hall.

Located in East Yorkshire, this elegant country house (where we hold two wedding fairs a year – next one on 22nd October), provided the perfect backdrop for this romantic 1920s shoot that’s brimming with chic dresses and details for your own big day.

Put together by a talented team of Yorkshire-based suppliers, all angles from the décor, cake and stationery to hair, makeup and attire have been covered, giving you plenty of pretty to pour over! Here to give us all the details on the concept and contributors is hair and makeup artist Julia Jeckell

julia says: It’s always really special to collaborate with a team of talented creatives. Working as a hair and makeup artist I am slightly obsessed with looks from past eras and my inspiration for the shoot came from the early 1920’s. I wanted to create a classic, almost understated ‘old world’ ethereal feel, with that classic Englishness of ‘The Bloomsbury’ set, as opposed to the glitz and glamour of the ‘Gatzby’ era.

The location of Saltmarshe Hall, near Howden, East Yorkshire, was the perfect setting for our photoshoot. It was chosen as it is an elegant Grade II listed, 19th Century English country house and complemented our vintage theme perfectly.

In particular, the soft cool tones of the paintwork worked as the perfect backdrop for a dreamy ethereal feel, along with detailing throughout the house worked to stunning effect, especially as some of the bedrooms we used had 1920’s deco style mirrors and vintage features.

Anna Straw of Anna’s Attic, our venue stylist, set up the wedding breakfast tables with a beautiful mix of glass candlesticks, string pearls, a floral centrepiece and handmade vintage doilies in cream and blush pinks. Bespoke pink mirror place cards and menus were created by Lisa Jane of Lisa Jane Creative, who specialises in wedding stationery to reflect our 1920’s deco feel.

A casually placed blush pink runner was used at the front of the top table and dressed with vintage silver bud vases, bottles and pearl strings using pretty cut flowers and vintage style roses in soft pastels with flowing foliage, which was provided by Sarah from All Occasions Florists, Howden.

Flowers were also lined up along the mantle in the ceremony room, which was also used to showcase some other carefully curated feminine items, these included a Doulton 1920’s figurine, strings of pearls, a vintage Chanel bottle and silver bud vase with ostrich feathers in the softest grey and pink and cut blooms, all sat atop a silver mirrored tray.
