Memoirs Of A Ballerina. A Styled Shoot By White Memoirs

January 30th, 2014 | Julia Braime

Tim Simpson Photography

Yesterday, I shared a beautiful shoot to share the designs of milliner Rebecca Jagger, and it just so happens that Rebecca’s work (which she is offering at a 10% discount to Brides Up North readers until the end of February – click here) is shown off in this styled shoot too, sent to me by Rachael, Brides Up North Featured Supplier and owner of The Social Butterfly

As well as telling you all about out own amazing events we also like to share carefully selected diary dates from our sponsors and friends that we think might interest our discerning readers.  I’ve already told you about The Social Butterfly’s forthcoming event on 16th February 2014, and this is a styled shoot devised by the exhibitors at that event to show you a little of what they are all about. For full details of the event, see my original post here.

Meanwhile, I’ll allow Rachael to set the mood:  Alone in her dressing room, a ballerina waits for her beau. Gazing at her perfect porcelain reflection in a handheld vintage mirror, she anticipates his arrival.  She lights the room with candles and puts her favourite record, 1920’s French jazz. Gently parting her lips, smiling with her eyes, she remembers their last romantic rendezvous in Paris.

Tim Simpson Photography

Taking the time to re-read his anecdotes of affection and to appreciate his lavish yet so thoughtful gestures a single dipped rose, an elegant pair of pearl droplet earrings and a jewel encrusted neck collar, her heart beats faster as his approach becomes nearer.

The Secret Garden. A Styled Bridal Shoot At Combermere Abbey

August 1st, 2013 | Julia Braime

.

Feeling quintessentially English here on the wedding blog this morning (might break for a scone and clotted cream soon) with a beautiful styled shoot sent to me by a team of North West wedding industry suppliers.  They congregated at Combermere Abbey on a lovely Summer’s day to put together this stunning set of images to inspire you to add some floral loveliness to your own big day.  I can almost hear your Pinterest fingers twitching already, so without further ado, lets enter the Secret Garden…

.

The team say:  Unique and beautiful, the Victorian walled gardens at Combermere Abbey, with their botanical riches and stunning architecture, make for one of the UK’s most spectacular wedding venues.  This combined with the current floral design trend, was the inspiration behind our enchanting ‘Secret Garden’ themed shoot.

The aim of the creative team was to capture the ethereal and timeless sensation that pervades at Combermere, a venue which constantly delights, transforms with each season and where each wedding enjoys its own uniqueness.

Award-winning wedding and fashion photographer, Adam Capper, captured some truly inspirational shots. Adam’s passion, detailed eye, raw talent and individual spirit, make him one of the best in his profession.

The shoot was styled by Rebecca Jenkinson of Pretty Little Trio whose vintage crockery, silverware and artifacts add elegance and timeless style to the images. Rebecca’s passion for all things vintage and eclectic collection of pretty china, cutlery, props and glassware is available to hire to create the sweetest of weddings. 

.

.

The wild floral bouquet was the creation of Heather Ryder of Living Colour at Stockton Heath, inspired by the secret garden theme, seasonal blooms included roses, peonies, passion flowers and Sweet William, in vibrant pinks and deep magenta shades and incorporated crochet cotton lace detail and tiny keys to represent ‘The Key to my Heart’ with complementary floral table arrangements.

.

This theme also was enhanced by hand-made stationery, courtesy of Hattie Boo Designs.  Emma Bryan of Hattie Boo celebrates the written word and tactile creations, with imaginative and beautiful stationery for all of life’s events including weddings.

.

Tempting desserts were presented to the table by specialist event caterers, Pickled Walnut, whose combination of fine foods and sense-of-theatre have won them a place as one of the Abbey’s preferred suppliers.

.

Lace chair covers, complementing the table setting, were provided by wedding gown designer, Claire Mischevani of Shrewbury, and are available for hire.

The bride was dressed by Kirsten Lindsay, of Amy Louise Bridal Gowns, Nantwich. This family-managed designer bridal boutique is one of the premier retailers in the North West, with a stunning array of designer gowns and accessories. Those showcased are the exquisitely beaded, vintage-style Jenny Packham ‘Azalea’ and also the purely beautiful, simple ‘Scarletta’.

.

Make-up and hair styling was by cute Rockabilly sister-duo, Pouting in Peep Toes. Sal and Eve Yarwood worked their retro-magic on our bride, Lauren, giving her a dreamy ‘English rose’ appearance.

Boho & Country: A Styled Bridal Shoot In The North West

July 30th, 2013 | Julia Braime

.

Sam Clayton Photography

.

.

It’s often the way in the World of weddings, that a small idea snowballs into something huge.  The Brides Up North Wedding Exhibitions, anyone?  Exhibit A.  A good thing.  Those 200 hand knitted favours that you are currently spending every evening crafting?  Exhibit B.  Not so much.  

.

Knitting cramps aside, I love this industry for it’s all inclusive, positive, lets create something beautiful together attitude.  That’s why when Laura of Perfect Choice Planning asked me if I would like to feature this beautiful styled shoot by a really rather talented collective of North West Suppliers and photographers, that had started small and become something rather special, I was right behind it!

.

And before I hand you over to Laura, let’s address those favours. Ladies only.  The guys don’t care and it’ll cut your knitting time in half, leaving you free to browse today’s blog features at your leisure.  See?  Problem solved. 

.

Enjoy this…

Laura of Perfect Choice Planning says:  Our Boho & Country feature was born from an enquiry from Boho Brides – Classic VW Hire about styling a photo-shoot to promote their new business. Being a huge VW fan, I jumped at the chance and set about the organisation.

Not long after, I was at a supplier network where I met Sam from Sam Clayton Photography, and Adele and Roger, who own The Great Hall at Mains. Along with Emma from Emma B Photography we talked about creating a styled shoot to work together, as not many of us had worked together before. Knowing what a stunning country venue The Great Hall at Mains is, I mentioned Boho Brides, and the shoot was born!

.

It was then I set about thinking of what styling to use and other suppliers to bring on board. Choosing the right suppliers and venue for the shoot is just as important as if choosing it for your own wedding or special event – you have to be sure that you have suppliers you can trust to deliver what you want, that the venue emulates the feel of the shoot that you’re aiming for and that everything works perfectly together to create amazing final images.

.

This shoot shows exactly what happens when you get this right: the images speak volumes for themselves and, even with a four month postponement of the shoot and slight change of original suppliers due to the date change and unpredictable weather, everyone was a pleasure to work with.

.

I wanted the shoot to have a relaxed and care-free feel but I wanted to bring an additional style of country to it that would both compliment and contrast the bohemian vibe. With this, I introduced styling like tweed and wellies to provide an understated and subtle hint at this.

Our photographers on the day were Emma B Photography, Sam Clayton Photography and Shutterleaf Photography. Following our initial meeting, Sam, Emma and I decided it would be beneficial and fun to have an additional photographer on board, especially with three models, plenty of gorgeous props and a wealth of areas at the venue to use.

I’d met Anurag of Shutterleaf Photography at another wedding supplier social occasion and loved his energy and personality. Looking at his work, his style is distinctive and different to both Emma’s and Sam’s so I thought it would be a perfect complimentary contrast to the other images. On the day, his boundless energy was ever-more obvious and also infectious, contorting himself as all photographers do it the most uncomfortable positions. He was wonderful to work with and I have to say I was so tired by the end of the day from just watching him work!

.

Emma from Emma B Photography is a lovely friend of mine, both in and outside of the wedding industry. I’ve had the pleasure of working with her on a few shoots now, as well as having known her for over 20 years, and she never fails to deliver beautiful images, time after time. She is a lovely person and very talented photographer; anyone booking her for their wedding will definitely not be disappointed.

.

Even though I had met Sam previously, I hadn’t had the chance of actually working with her so I was really excited to have the opportunity. I was not disappointed! Her images took my breath away, she had captured so much detail and natural looks that it’s so difficult to choose my favourites. I was so pleased and look forward to working with her again, and would definitely recommend her to any prospective bride.

What can I say about the venue except gorgeous! It was everything that we needed for the shoot and just the perfect setting for any wedding or event. The hosts, Adele and Roger are so accommodating and even let us traipse around the house they live in to get some gorgeous shots. The house will be available as part of the 2014 packages for the bridal party to use on the night of the weddings, and with corridors and stairs here, there and everywhere, this quirky accommodation and venue will not leave you disappointed.

.

Planning a photo-shoot is just like planning a wedding or any other event; there is a time limit to contact and confirm all your suppliers, there is the main theme (or not) to think about and style, relationships to build, emails to send, and the result that takes place on the day is just as exciting. Photo-shoots are a great way for industry suppliers to network, gain new contacts and work together to create amazing images for promotion, and I’m always on the look-out for exciting shoot ideas to bring to life and inspire suppliers and brides-to-be alike!

The hair & make up was done by the lovely Sarah Green MUA. I met Sarah when I was modelling for another photo-shoot (as I always say, never ask someone to do something you wouldn’t!) and was so impressed with her styling and personality that I knew she would be perfect for the Boho & Country shoot. I wanted the styling to reflect the relaxed, care-free styling of the shoot but also needed to work with the dresses and accessories, which Sarah totally delivered. It was great to have her on board and it was brilliant to work with her again.

The dresses and accessories were provided by the lovely Nicole from Pearl Bridal Boutique, who I have worked with on several occasions. Her dresses suited the country and relaxed style we were aiming for, lifted by gorgeous headpieces, belts and my favourite accessory of the day, the backwards jacket (styled with Luna dress in the croquet shots). If you haven’t yet chosen your perfect dress for your special day, head over to Nicole’s shop for stunning dresses from top bridal designers at reasonable and affordable prices.

The brilliant VW transport was provided by John from Boho Brides – Classic VW Hire, based in Southport and lovingly restored by John himself. As I said, I am a huge VW fan and was particularly excited by the blue VW Beetle when it arrived, as I vow to own one just like that at some point! When John first got in contact, I was super excited to feature these in a shoot and was so pleased to be able to style around them. The cute cushions inside the camper vans were even made by his talented future daughter-in-law, Zara. I think you’ll agree that they made a perfect edition to the shoot, and John, Zara, Mark and Chris were brilliant to work with. If VW’s are what you love, get booking them now!

.

With the venue being surrounded by gorgeous countryside and having the VW transport, I thought it would be a lovely idea to have an almost storyline to the day, married couple going for a picnic after the wedding, just the two of them enjoying the tranquillity of each other’s company. We had two female models, Michelle and Lauren who had contrasting looks; Michelle has a fair complexion with blonde hair and gorgeous structured features, and Lauren has the English Rose look, again with a fair complexion, brunette hair and naturally at ease in front of the camera.

Mark was our male model for the day, having to split himself between our two stunning brides. As there are not many places you can get this style of suit or wedding clothes that isn’t off the high street, I styled Mark in his own clothes, adding a few extra details such as cap, tie and neckerchief. The shoot graduated slowly from relaxed country styling to wedding in a country setting, showing the numerous ways to use the accessories, props, venue and products in any type of country or outdoor wedding.

.

All our models on the day are just real people like me and you, not professional models, just normal people who at times felt as uncomfortable in front of the camera as you might feel thinking about having your wedding pictures taken. Both of the girls are engaged so it was lovely for them to be able to explore the wedding industry in an unconventional way but gave them a bit of practice ready for their big days. My advice to anyone out there is to definitely try and book an engagement or portrait shoot with your chosen photographers, not just to ease you into being in front of the camera but to also get to know your photographer too. It also helps the photographer get to know you better too!

The final pieces of the styling, including the cakes and crockery were provided by some wonderful companies, most who I have worked with before.  The perfect bouquets and buttonholes were provided by Flower Design. You can’t fault these products in any way – the quality and beauty captures your attention from the moment you see them. Jane and Jason are based not far from the venue so another local supplier for the shoot. As I had only met Jane briefly at the same network I met Adele and Roger at, it was a great opportunity to work with them and definitely look forward to doing so again in the future.

.

The cakes were provided were a very good friend of mine, Sarah from Rocky Road Cakes. As most wedding suppliers start out, Sarah bakes in her own time outside of her full time career and specialises (but is not limited to) delectable cupcakes in many flavours. She has been making my birthday cakes for years so I can personally vouch that they are delicious – but so can the other suppliers from the shoot as they very much enjoyed tucking into them after the shoot was over!

.

The umbrellas were provided by Klair from Love Umbrellas, another company I have had the pleasure of working with several times. Her products just fit in so well with so many different styles and themes, they can be made bespoke to order and are also super versatile – waterproof so perfect for the unpredictable British weather!

Last but most definitely not least, the fabulous vintage crockery, croquet set, basket, books, suitcases and pretty much most of the additional props were provided by the wonderful Rebecca at Pretty Little Trio. I was very excited to be working with Rebecca, and having a love of anything vintage or tea-related, I couldn’t wait to style the products into the shoot. When she arrived and told me about all the other lovely props and items that she had brought with her, I was even more excited – we didn’t even use half of what Rebecca brought with her, and what was there on the day wasn’t even all of the items she has – her house must look like a vintage treasure trove! It was wonderful to work with her and she was great help on the day, getting stuck in helping with styling, carrying and ideas from start to finish.

I just want to say a huge thank you to everyone who took part on the day – it was so much fun and everyone worked really hard and brilliantly together to help create the fantastic final images that you can see here. I hope you all love them as much as I do, and please feel free to leave any comments for myself and the suppliers involved.

Behind The Blog: Brides Up North Goes Vintage At The Bowdon Rooms, Cheshire

May 23rd, 2013 | Julia Braime

.

Martin Hambleton Photography

Ellie and I taking a breather!

.

If you follow the wedding blog over on Twitter or Facebook (and why ever not?! – go get involved) and catch my feeds of a Sunday, you will know that the last few months have been absolutely manic behind the scenes here at Brides Up North HQ.  And I’m talking every. single. weekend. 

.

We are verrrrry near to completing a full season of fabulous Brides Up North branded luxury wedding exhibitions for Spring 2013, with just one to go (diarise this: we are at Sarah Beeny’s Rise Hall on Sunday 9th June, bringing together the best wedding suppliers in East Yorkshire under Ms “Restoration Nightmare”’s very, very lovely roof) and with eight (EIGHT!) under our belt since the season kicked off back at Allerton Castle on a frosty morning in early February, I’m ready for a summer holiday!

.

I think I have aged at least ten years since New Years Eve.

.

Each event is hard, hard work and takes months of planning, promoting, sales and admin.  Oh the admin!  Luckily I have a full time assistant here at Brides Up North HQ now (hello Kate!), but this blog and it’s related events are my (other) baby, and I invest a lot of time and energy into making sure that each and every event is individual, venue appropriate and just right.

.

.

Martin Hambleton Photography

.

.

Last Sunday, it was time for my tiny team to head North West for the very first time, to the unique and authentic vintage venue that is The Bowdon Rooms, Altrincham.  Just on the doorstep of Hale and Bowdon, this delectable dance hall with it’s high cornices and sprung floors is prime for a wedding party.

.

.

Martin Hambleton Photography

.

.

.

And what a swell party it was!  Our wonderful team of wedding industry suppliers decorated the venue from head to toe with their vintage and luxury loveliness.  Feathers, sequins, beading, antique lace and the odd cloche hat sat beautifully alongside fresh blooms and pretty printed papers. 

.

.

Martin Hambleton Photography

.

.

It didn’t stop inside either, outside Matt Bowen Photography brought along his gorgeous new girlfriend: Florence The Vintage Caravan (available for hire as a photo booth on your big day) and Event In A Tent and Woodland Weddings invited visitors into their cosy tipi for delicious canapes by Greengages.  As the weather – amazingly – was in our favour, the garden also played host to an impromptu jam session from Dominic Halpin and his swing band, who also entertained hourly on the main stage. 

.

.

And oh! the music.  The venue is an operating jazz club, so I was keen to reflect this on the day.  Performances from Dominic and the boys along with Minerva Ensemble, It’s A Wind Up! vintage DJs and with Phil Lyons and his New Vintage Band on site kept the place buzzing all day long.

There wasn’t much time to chat once doors opened!  My wonderful friend Ellie and I (big love to Ellie) were on our feet all day greeting brides to be and their families, and shifting a whole lot of Brides Up North goody bags. 

.

.

Martin Hambleton Photography

.

.

Luckily, my friend and fellow exhibitor Martin Hambleton Photography was around to catch a bit of the action in these beautiful images showing off the talents of our other suppliers, although even he got a little bit side-lined! 

.

Martin says: Well done on organising such a brilliant show!  I’m sorry there aren’t as many images of brides browsing – every time I moved away from the stand looking for shots, someone stopped to look at my albums so I had to dash back (that’s not a complaint)!

.

Martin, that kind of distraction I absolutely do not have a problem with!

.

.

If you didn’t make it on Sunday, we are doing it all over again in November!  As part of our Autumn tour, we’ll be back in Altrincham on Sunday 3rd November 2013 for another beautiful event filled with wedding inspiration and some winter vintage sparkle.

.

But first, a little rest, if you please!

.

Enjoy these images and do visit our wonderful exhibitors’ websites when sourcing your wedding suppliers.  I would personally recommend each and every one of them.

Until next time North West!

Autumn: Reloved, Reused, Recycled: A Styled Bridal Shoot In The North West

November 29th, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

Autumn wedding by Adam Capper Photography

.

.

In these last days of November (and now officially on Brides Up North Christmas Party countdown!) I feel like the hours, days and weeks are just racing towards the new year.  Perhaps it’s that we are so busy here at Brides Up North HQ planning and taking exhibitor bookings for our first six (six!) big bridal events of Spring 2013, or maybe it’s this growing baby bump that’s making it harder for me to sit at the computer for long periods of time – but time seems to be flying!

With the racing clock in mind, it’s nice to be mindful for a minute or two and take a look back over the gorgeous Autumn that we have just enjoyed.  Mine was chockablock with our inspirational wedding shows at some really beautiful venues, house hunting, meetings for brand growth in 2013, antenatal sessions, Christmas party planning, just a little bit of writing (read: masses of writing) and the odd really lovely wedding to attend in person.

We chose Autumn for our own wedding day back in 2010, and if you were lucky enough to get married this season then I hope you enjoyed crisp blue skies, golden leaves and that magical fresh-start feeling that I think Autumn brings on your big day.

This morning, we join friend of the wedding blog, Rebecca of Pretty Little Trio for a simple styled shoot capturing the essence of my favourite season, with images by Adam Capper Photography

Rebecca says:  Since it was a totally glorious Autumn this year, we wanted to capture it and pulled together an idea of a really simply styled shoot at the beautifully restored Victorian Bandstand in Queens Park, Crewe. We had a few dog walkers stop and stare and congratulate the ‘bride’ (we didn’t have the heart to say). Taking the bandstand as our centrepiece and the season as an influence for our colour theme, we also had in mind a reused, reloved and recycled theme.

The vintage china, books and props by Pretty Little Trio are all second hand and so reused, the bandstand has recently been restored, the dress is from Sarah’s Wedding Exchange and has beautiful designer dresses ready to be reloved, the pom poms by Sue Lacey are from recycled paper and the button bouquet from Living Colour has vintage book pages within it. The images taken by Adam Capper have been given a proper old feel by taking original vintage photographs and overlaying their patina onto the images he took on the day, think it makes Naomi look a little ethereal.

She Loves Her! A Styled Civil Partnership Shoot In The North West

October 11th, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

Civil partnership styled shoot by Adam Capper Photography

.

.

I recently put out a press request for images for my latest Wedding Magazine column… and I’m thinking along the lines of something blue.  Each month, I forage my way around the internet, old blog posts and new submissions until I curate a beautiful inspiration spread for my favourite National glossy (I still have to pinch myself that they invited me to be a columnist for them!). 

.

{Incidentally, if you would like to submit some images for consideration please email me julia@bridesupnorth.co.uk, I’d love to hear from you!}

.

These styled civil partnership images were sent to me by friend of the wedding blog Rebecca of Pretty Little Trio – who so kindly lent her gorgeous vintage cake stands for the last Brides Up North Tweet Up North West – and I just had to share the shoot with you in it’s entirety. 

.

.

Rebecca says:  We wanted to style a civil partnership vintage tea party shoot – with hints of Old Hollywood Glamour & delicate burlesque. We drew inspirations from old Hollywood glamour, soft burlesque, striking floral designs, pale blue, deep blue, white and red, vintage crockery, silver teapots & cake stands, vintage books, strawberries, balloons, red hearts, bluebells, two bluebirds, show stopping birdcage veils, apple orchards, red roses, white orchids, red lips, white apple blossom, birdcage wedding cake, little birds and frilly lace knicker cakes!  

.

The shoot’s inspiration evolved over time and adapted to what the British weather threw at us on the day!  Heather (florist & fascinators) and I had an idea about using a bluebell woods for a soft burlesque /old vintage Hollywood inspired shoot. Burlesque is often in a Boudoir setting and so to put in a more natural one was a really exciting concept.  

.

.

.

.

Adam (our photographer) and I wanted to work on a shoot together at Combermere Abbey, and as luck would have it the venue has a bluebell woods. Combermere loved the idea of something a bit different so plans were pulled together to organise everything to catch the bluebells in bloom.   

.

Heather and I worked on pulling the concept and team together and asked Naomi and Nicky if they would like to be involved.  I met the girls at one of my Secret Vintage Tea Party events, they are engaged to be married next year and knowing that Naomi loves burlesque, we managed to persuade them to get involved. .

Taking the blue of the bluebells as the colour scheme Heather and I wanted a real shot of a different colour as an accent to contrast with the natural blues.  A pair of blue Vivienne Westwood shoes called ‘Lady Dragon’  gave us the inspiration we needed (good old Viv!) with their red hearts, it fitted the whole burlesque/ vintage tea/ light hint at Alice’s red queen of hearts (the tattoo on Naomi’s feet by the way is a quotation from Joan of Arc!) 

.

.

.

Of course looking at the photos you’ll be wondering … where are the bluebells? Well unfortunately the day of the shoot arrived and there had been so much rain in the run up to it and so much rain on the day that ‘Mav’ the gorgeous white horse (yep we had a horse lined up) was the only creature with appropriate footwear to get to the bluebell wood: it was completely impassable in wellies/waders and we’d have had a glasto style shoot not a burlesque one!  So we had to settle with the gorgeous glass house and orchard instead, which turned out beautifully and still gave us the natural look we were after.  As for the bluebells… there is always next year!

Adam Capper Photography is a talented and experienced photographer, down to earth and skilled at getting ‘that shot’.  He has a true natural talent for capturing the beautiful, unique and the real. Always off shooting a rock star or recording a happening, he has a passion for nostalgic photographic techniques but with the know how and kit of the modern too. He has captured the contrast between the vintage feel and the contemporary elements of this shoot.

.

Rebecca of  Pretty Little Trio Vintage China Hire has a true passion for vintage crockery and styling and loves to use it in both traditional and contemporary ways.  Her beautiful and extensive vintage china collection (of over 600 teacups and saucers!) can tie in to most themes and the red and blue vintage colours show how versatile vintage styling and china can be and can be incorporated into many different styles of  weddings (and always so much better than a boring plain white cup!). Tea (or gin or champagne!) always tastes better out of bone china!

.

Setting the scene, the delicate vintage china tea cups and teapots, all pale blues, deep blues, red polka dots and red roses to suit the burlesque tea party theme, sit with the glamorous decadent silver tea pots and silver cake stands with juicy red strawberries and flowers. Little finishing touches draw on the vintage elements of the shoot such as red and blue leather bound vintage books and a deep blue vintage leather suitcase.  

.

Living Colour Design source their diverse selection of flowers and foliage from countries such as Costa Rica, Malaysia and Holland; not forgetting the beautiful British variety! Leading florist and proprietor Heather has a wealth of experience and ability with a natural flair for creativity. She thinks of floristry as an art form using textures, shape and colours to create striking designs.

.

.

.

.

The beautiful handmade birdcage fascinator by Hummingbird is a "Hollywood show-stopper" creation with stunning white detailing and draped white veiling. Each piece is unique and made to order and for each individual.  

.

Heather and I were delighted when the lovely Kirsten, manageress of Amy Louise Bridal gave up her Sunday to come down to the shoot with a selection of her fabulous dresses. We had given her a brief and she had found the perfect gown for Naomi, which really pulled together the feel of the shoot. The bodice extenuated Naomi’s curves, the detailing was stunning and the tea length tulle dress was exactly the look and feel we were after, that of a Hollywood starlet.

.

At Amy Louise they love to be part of the wonderful experience of helping each bride to choose their perfect wedding gown. After opening in 2000 the boutique has been nominated for awards from the British Bridal Association and was voted ‘Best Bridal Retailer of the Year 2008. They have established themselves as one of the premier bridal wear stores in the North West and are delighted that many of their new brides come from recommendations from their past brides.

.

Emma at Hattie Boo Designs is incredibly creative, has an amazing attention to detail and quality and can take your ideas and add hers to create something special. The ‘two birds’ stationery tied in with lots of symbolism in the shoot. The two birds – our couple, the little red hearts and blue feathers drawing influence from burlesque and the little birds of Naomi’s tattoo.

.

Jane of Teatime Treats created the birdcage wedding cake and the cupcakes which were made to tie in with the little red hearts on the shoes and in the bouquet, with cheeky burlesque inspired icing like little frilly knickers and lovely little bird and birdcage detailing. Not only do Jane’s cake look exquisite they taste divine too.

.

.

Sister’s Eve and Sal Yarwood are Pouting In Peep-Toes, a freelance hair, make up & rockabilly and vintage inspired clothing company.  Their combined passion for everything hair and make up and their love of iconic pin ups and vintage fashion made them the perfect choice to help us create the right look for the day. Nicky and Naomi’s make up has a soft, elegant 1940’s feel with perfect red pouts and eyeliner!

Your journey of discovery begins at the gates of Combermere Abbey, a hidden gem in the rural borderlands of Cheshire/Shropshire in Northwest England. This magical place blends centuries of history, breathtaking landscape and compelling architecture with privacy and luxury. A stunning and unique wedding venue.

Nice To Tweet You – The Official Photographs From The Brides Up North Tweet Up North West!

June 28th, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

Martin Hambleton Photography for Brides Up North UK Wedding Blog

.

.

So, this time last week, the very next day after the excellent Brides Up North Tweet Up Yorkshire (see all the official images from that event by clicking here), I was back on the road again in a North Westerly direction to throw a little party for all my North West wedding industry colleagues at The Belle Époque in the beautiful town of Knutsford. 

.

The bunting was flying on arrival, and after even more heavy lifting than the day before, decorating galore and a swift makeover in the ladies’ toilets, I was ready to rock and roll. 

.

.

For those of you who are new readers of Brides Up North (and you are gathering in your thousands month on month – hello there!) I explained in my post about my Yorkshire event exactly what a Tweet Up is and why they are important, so I’ll keep it brief this afternoon.  Basically these events are a chance for me to say a huge thank you to all the wedding industry friends and colleagues who have supported the growth of Brides Up North so wholeheartedly and have allowed me to keep bringing the wedding pretty your way twice a day as well as hosting the larger Brides Up North events especially for everyone out there sporting a sparkler on their ring finger.

.

These not for profit events are a chance for the industry (many of whom are individuals working hard – and sometimes holding down another job too – from their kitchen table) to get together, exchange connections and boost their business – meaning bigger and better things for the Northern wedding industry at large and ultimately for the most important people of all: the bride and groom.  That means you.

This event wouldn’t have been possible without the help of my amazing team of wedding industry wonders, so lets have a few snaps for them today.

First up, a big thank you to Collette from The Belle Époque for letting me use her beautiful venue for the event.  The rooms, staff and cute Knutsford setting are just perfect.  If you are looking for an individual venue that adds a touch of glamour and has an intimate feel, The Belle Époque, with its beautiful rooms, cool bar and pretty roof garden is an excellent choice.

Marvellous North West wedding photographer Martin Hambleton Photography captured the whole event on camera.  Thank you so much to Martin not only for such a brilliant record of the evening and turning the photographs round so bloomin’ quickly, but also for holding a camera all night when everyone else was sloshing back the vino.  I’m sure he snuck a cheeky glass or two in though, right Martin?

Sugar based treats in the form of the most beautiful occasion cake with pink and purple peonies and the loveliest cupcake displays were provided by the wonderful Francesca at The Cheshire Cat Cake Company and EmmyLou at LilyBud Cupcakes respectively.  You gals are amazing at what you do, and will always find a way to my heart by plying me with cake.  Huge thanks too to Pretty Little Trio for supplying their gorgeous vintage cake stands for EmmyLou’s display.

I don’t know what I’d do without my great friends Kelly and Colette at All Wrapped Up Events.  These chicks not only brought their amazing vintage sweetie cabinet along with them, but lent me a whole host of props and goodies for venue dressing and a foto fun area. These two are true professionals who will always go that extra mile for their client.  Get them booked.

Stunning floral displays from Laura at Laurel Weddings twinkling with crystals and hanging gems brought the outside in, so even though it was pouring down outside we had an indoor paradise of pink and purple blooms.  I am always stunned at the talents of my Featured Suppliers.  You can find Laurel Weddings on the Florists page in my Directory.

.

Jo from Simply Bows & Chair Covers also gave her own time (between dashing to other set ups) to bring my brand colours to life using glorious sashes and table runners.  Thank you so much Jo!

And last but not least a big thank you to Wedding Ideas Magazine for supporting my concept from the outset, lending their support to these events and letting every guest take home a copy of their brand new issue!  Hopefully a good hangover read…
