Luxury Wedding Fairs With Top UK Wedding Blog Brides Up North

Supplier Showcase: Graphic Embers PLUS Exclusive 10% Discount For Wedding Blog Readers!

December 14th, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

The funny thing about editing a blog like Brides Up North is that it has ceased to be just my blog, and whilst I source the features, curate the content and do all the writing here at Brides Up North HQ, so much of what you see before you every day depends on the fantastic Northern wedding industry who continues to support this blog and brand so wholeheartedly, and YOU my lovely readers who continue to visit each day in your thousands, send me lovely emails with your wedding queries (I can almost always point you in the direction of a wedding professional who can help) and submit your Real Weddings to feature after the event.  Whilst Brides Up North is my creation, the blog is very much your product, and I can’t thank you enough for that as our Northern Revolution picks up pace and rumbles on!

.

Today we meet the lovely Angela of Graphic Embers, one of the Featured Suppliers without whose support this double daily dose of wedding inspiration and it’s related real life bridal events would cease to exist.  Let’s give Angela and her pretty, bespoke wedding stationery a warm welcome.  There’s 10% off in it for you…

What is the story behind Graphic Embers?

.

The idea for behind Graphic Embers came into being five and a half years ago, when I made my own wedding stationery. However, it never got any further than a vague idea for something I might do at some point in the future; after all, I was studying for my degree and had a job I loved. However, in 2008 the economic crisis began, and one of the many industries hit was construction, mine and my husband’s industry.

.

In the summer of 2010 Matthew, my husband, was made redundant, then a year later, the week I had my daughter, so was I. While unfortunate, the redundancies did spur me on to begin something I had only day-dreamed of for years. I built our first website and Matthew set up the Graphic Embers business selling wedding stationery designs I’d created as a hobby in the preceding years. Graphic Embers got its very first client on October 14th 2011, and has gone from strength to strength ever since.

.

In April 2012 I finally re-gained the reins of Graphic Embers after my maternity leave ended and since then I have continued to develop the brand, create a wide selection of stationery ranges and work on some truly unique bespoke work for our couples.

.

It has been a tough year, starting a business from scratch with no wages to fund it and no access to business grants or loans. It has taken hard work and dedication to get us to where we are today; nominated suppliers for one of the local wedding venues and winner of The North of England Wedding Awards 2012! For all it has been tough, I wouldn’t go back to my old job now, when Graphic Embers has so much to offer. I love working with brides and grooms and helping create the dream they have for their wedding day. Winning the award made me so grateful to all the couples who have given us the opportunity to work with them over the last year and has made me more determined than ever to offer the best service we can.

.

It’s nice to have access to a blog like Brides Up North that is based in the North. So many wedding blogs, or wedding media generally, are focussed in the South. It’s nice to be able to keep up with Northern suppliers and Northern brides. One of our aims for 2013 is to support the local economy and we now have both a Northern card stockist and a Northern print lab, as well as advertising in some Northern media. We’re proud to be a Northern business and it’s nice to see a blog that celebrates brides in the North.

Who is a Graphic Embers bride?

.

Any bride who wants dedicated service, the ability to fully customise her stationery or have a unique design is a Graphic Embers bride. While we have quite a broad range of vintage and scrapbook inspired standard designs we have worked on everything from snow leopard print chequebook invitations to laser cut hot air balloons. Our aim is to provide every one of our couples with stationery to suit them and their big day.

.

.
Where are you based?  Do you work by appointment/ online?

.

We are based in Lynemouth, Northumberland, but don’t currently have a public premises (one of our hopes for the future). We do however offer free at home consultations to couples in Northumberland, Tyne and Wear and County Durham. We can also work entirely online via email, much as we do for national clients. Our current designs and brochure are available to view on our website www.graphic-embers.co.uk which is regularly updated.

.
Are all your designs completely bespoke?

.

We have a wide collection of standard designs which we can fully customise, however, the majority of our work is bespoke. We regularly have clients wanting something they can’t find anywhere else and we pride ourselves on being able to provide a service which allows us to work to almost any theme. We’ve even had a bride lift her leg almost onto our stand at a wedding fair to show us her snow leopard print leggings as that was the design she wanted on her invitations. Often the bespoke designs are the most fun to work on, and I think my all time favourite was a set of autumn themed stationery we did for a client who married in October. Her invitations and most of her day stationery were laser cut from rich brown and orange card, but her theme also gave us the opportunity to try a laser engraved wooden table plan which was then inlaid with mahogany. The table plan became the inspiration behind our new Signature Range of wooden stationery.

.

.
What products are available in each design?

.

We should be able to produce anything a couple wants in any design. If it doesn’t already exit we will make an item to match, right the way through from save the date cards to thank you cards, and all the invitations, table plans and on the day stationery between.

.

.
What stationery designs do you think will be popular for next season?

.

Vintage designs are still proving popular. Our Country Garden design is relatively new, but is proving to be the design getting most interest for next year’s weddings. However, modern, bold printed statements are also doing well. On request we recently produced what is quite a simple design, text on white card which lists famous couples, with our clients’ names in the middle of the list in a different colour. Since producing the first design we’ve had more requests for a similar sort of thing. Print is certainly getting more attention now than it has done previously, and while handmade designs will always have a strong following it’s certainly no bad thing being able to do our own illustrations to print to suit current demand.

.

.
What other products/ services do you offer?

.

We also have the United Kingdom’s first LED lit, acrylic, laser cut wishing trees available for hire. The trees were designed by Graphic Embers and are exclusive to us. The concept is that they appear as elegant ice sculptures during the day, so as not to overpower the flowers and cake, but then in the evening when the lights go down the act as stunning beacons, drawing guests in to fill out their wishing tags. The bases have around 8000 colour options in it, so we can match the trees to almost any colour scheme or set them to cycle through a range of colours which looks really magical.

.

Along with tree hire couples get the hire of our wishing tree poem, pens and decorations as well as a set of personalised tags and tag box to keep. We can match the tags and ribbons to a couples’ colour scheme as well as personalising the text on the reverse.

.

We are also looking at getting items to hire next year, as we’ve had so many requests for the butterfly table number stands we use at fairs. We already have a half bird cage that can be used as a table plan with the addition of tags but we’re hoping that by mid 2013 we will also have a set of table number stands and perhaps birdcages which can be hired out.

.
Who would be Graphic Embers’ dream client, and what sort of design would you envisage for them?

.

That’s a hard one, but I think some rock/metal singer type who either wants to play up their character or go for something quirky like a rockabilly themed wedding. We’ve just started looking at making hand bound guest books and while searching for cover materials we’ve found so many great fabrics I would love to make a themed goth or vintage rock book. And can you imagine having something you’d made, right down to hand stitching the pages, signed by a host of celebrity guests?

.

.
What would be your top five tips for Brides Up North when choosing their wedding stationery?

.

HEARTHave a look at lots of websites, wedding blogs, magazines and moodboards before you start talking to stationers so that you have an idea what you like and what you don’t, both in terms of theme/style and basic format. Do you want a postcard or a pocketfold?

.

HEARTThink about how much information you want to include early on. Stationers will be able to give you a more accurate quote if you can tell them straight away that you plan on including a list of local hotels and a map with directions.

.

HEARTIf you have guests coming from a distance and need to include extra information, but have a limited budget then don’t bother with save the dates. Save your money for better, more comprehensive invitations and just send them a bit earlier.

.

HEARTAsk your chosen stationer how much you can customise a design, some will limit a design to a set variety of colours, some a set number of changes. If you really want to make your mark on a design then it is worth finding out how much you can do. We will make any changes we can or design something entirely unique just for you. Also, get samples if you customise a design. It may seem like an unnecessary extra cost to buy a personalised sample, especially with print lab costs for one off prints being so high, it is worth it though to check colours as they won’t always print as they appear on screen.

.

HEARTGet in touch with your chosen stationer early. We don’t like having to turn couples away and many of the most popular stationers book up six months in advance. Even as a relatively young business we can book up, and we already have an order book which goes up to December 2014! We don’t mind you booking us well in advance, in fact we’d rather book a production slot for you in nine months time than turn you away five months before your wedding.

.

.

What would be your no-nos for Brides Up North when choosing their wedding stationery? 

.

HEARTDon’t leave it to the last minute to find and book your stationer. Many of the best book up in advance and we don’t like disappointing couples.

.

HEARTWhile going for the budget option may seem like a good idea, it can have consequences. Your stationery is often a guest’s first glimpse at your big day and what you are paying for is both the quality of materials used and the time and dedicated service put in by your stationer. Sometimes the cheap option doesn’t come up to scratch and the stationer can’t or won’t fix the problem. It amazes me how many people we’ve had tell us another stationer has let them down.

.

.

.
Does all the stationery have to match?
 

.

A perfectly matching set of stationery can look beautiful, but as with everything in weddings you can do wonderful things by not matching as well. Much like you can have different coloured bridesmaid dresses as long as you tie them together somehow, you can do the same with stationery. We recently did a set of individual menus that alternated colours, half on pearlescent orange card and half on textured brown card for an autumn wedding. You could also have different designs or colours in the same theme, much like many do with mismatched vintage crockery. It all depends on the look you are trying to achieve.

.

.
Which of your ranges would you recommend for a bride on a budget/ if money was no object?

.

For a bride on a budget I would go for a postcard invitation of one of our printed ranges as, this keeps cost down but still allows for memorable design. If money is no object then I would definitely advise our Signature Range which is laser engraved into wood. It’s our most expensive range, but each piece is a stunningly crafted item. The table plan especially, which is inlaid with mahogany, is a beautiful keepsake.

.

.
Which designs are your bestsellers?

.

The Simplicity handmade wallet is very popular, it’s a very elegant but cost effective design and is probably the item we’ve had most orders for so far. However, for clients we’re speaking to for next year our Country Garden pocketfold could easily compete.

.

.

.
What sets Graphic Embers apart from its competitors
?

.

When we say bespoke design we mean it, we really can design to any theme. We’re also original, our wishing trees are something that has never before been seen and our stationery designs are exclusive to us. We offer a dedicated service and really value each and every couple who comes to us.

.

.

What are your prices/ price range, are you doing any special offers?

.

Invitation prices range between £1.85 and £8.10. Our pocketfold prices all include invitation, information insert and RSVP card as we’d rather give a full price upfront than give brides a nasty shock when they have to add on a separate information card price. However, if you don’t need the information card we are happy to deduct this.

.

If you order stationery through Graphic Embers we do offer 20% off wishing tree hire too. Wishing tree hire starts at £75 + mileage.

.

.
Can you offer a special discount to Brides Up North readers?

.

We can offer 10% off our 2013 prices for any stationery booking made before 1st February 2013. This includes booking a production slot in advance.

.

.

.
How long do you take to turn around an order?

.

Maximum timescales for handmade and print stationery is 31 days from full payment to shipment, though 14-21 days is more likely. For laser cut stationery the maximum time from payment to shipment is 45 days, but again we aim for less. The Signature Range is slightly different, as it can take four weeks for the materials to be delivered. Maximum timescales are eight weeks from payment to shipment, this is so we can order in the wood and produce the items. This doesn’t mean you need your table plan finalised eight weeks early, we can delay production of final design proof until four weeks after we’ve ordered the materials, as long as we know approximately how many tables you will need. As long as your details are finalised for us to start engraving that’s fine.

Take A Peep: Behind The Scenes At A Vintage Wedding Inspiration Shoot

March 20th, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

This morning on the wedding blog we met my first set of Northern Revolutionaries – the Vintage Victors (as I have christened them), led by Vicky Trainor (she of all things vintagely beautiful) and on location at Rigwood Manor, Saltburn on Sea.  Click here to meet them and see some images from their beautiful retro wedding inspiration shoot. 

.

If you do one thing today, watch these video clips.  A very cool way to see a whole day’s shoot in a matter of minutes and also a prudent reminder to never (or always?) work with children.  Sometimes not as angelic as they seem…

Meet The Northern Revolutionaries! The Vintage Victors! A Vintage Styled Bridal Inspiration Shoot

March 20th, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

You may have heard me shouting it from the rooftops once or twice and I’ll say it again {with feeling!}: Brides to be! Oi! Yes you! Join the Northern Revolution!

.

JoinTheNorthernRevolutionPoster

.

If you are new to the wedding blog, you might have stumbled across these swirly silver pages after becoming more than a little bit disheartened that everything “wedding” seemed to be going on down South.  Magazines, wedding blogs, directories, TV.  They all seem a bit Southern focused, non?  Nothing wrong with that I guess - and still so gorgeous – except it does get a little weary for those of us Up North doesn’t it?

.

As a bride to be that’s what I thought too.  And I thought that it was time something was done about it

.

As I’ve explained in various press interviews, like this one and that one, when it came to wedding planning, I was in no way properly informed about all the fantastic bridal talent in the North of the country, and fully anticipated lots of costly trips to London to source my suppliers. In my efforts to save on train fares, I ended up doing a lot of research into the local wedding industry and uncovered a thriving hub of talented suppliers that just weren’t buzzing loudly enough about their businesses.

.

I thought that somebody needed to turn up the volume – and why shouldn’t it be me?

.

Step forth, Brides Up North and our very own little Northern Revolution!  Join us!

.

I’ve already featured an inspiration shoot from today’s collective of suppliers – remember this?  You loved it!  Today I am featuring another part of the same shoot some images from which have <<<shock horror>>> already appeared on another wedding blog over at Annabel’s Love My Dress, but the reason I’m doing this (repeating similar content is not something I like to do very often – if ever – let me tell you) is that, well, this wonderful group of Northern suppliers asked me so very nicely. 

.

I also wanted to give a different slant to featuring a styled bridal shoot by finding out a bit more than the norm about each talented individual who has worked so hard to put it all together as well as showcasing the gorgeous results.  I feel a bit of a wedding blog series coming on here, so why don’t I stop crusading for a moment and introduce you to a group that I’ll call my first set of Northern Revolutionaries, lead by the oh so fabulous Vicky Trainor (whose styling and stationery is to die for – did you see her in action at the Brides Up North Super Showcase?!).  I’ve nicknamed them “The Vintage Victors” and here they share their own past, present and future and their pretty vintage “Rigwood Manor” styled shoot. 

.

.

Becky Mitchell Photography

.

.

As I explained, this is a slightly different format to your usual wedding inspiration shoot, so this morning, we meet them and see a few sneak peeks – and this afternoon… we venture behind the scenes!

I’ve always loved looking at pictures and people fascinate me so photography seemed a natural course to take. When I started taking photographs I was shooting on an old Hasselblad and developing the film and printing work in a darkroom. My background in traditional, documentary photography has given me a deep appreciation for the medium.

My first child, Charlie was born in the final year of my degree and accompanied me along with my long-suffering husband on those early projects. Then Lilla, my little girl, was born two years later and I took a year out to enjoy my children. During this time the little ones were my main subject and the perfect models and I started making pictures (this time with a second-hand digital camera) documenting their earliest years.

.

It’s lovely to know those early pictures of my own children formed my first portfolio of child portraiture and from there I started my own business. This quickly blossomed and developed and took on a new direction when I had the opportunity to photograph my first wedding.

.

Right about now

.

Things have gone in leaps and bounds. My husband (and a pretty amazing photographer too) and I opened Profile Gallery & Sitting Room – a dedicated photography gallery and a vintage inspired teashop – my pride and joy. I have been able to indulge in my love of all things old and beautiful and organize ‘For The Love Of’ vintage fairs in my Victorian hometown of Saltburn-by-the-Sea.

.

I’m really looking forward to working with my amazing brides and grooms. I’m always thrilled when couples choose me as their photographer it makes my day!

Adrian Wray

Adrian Wray – Hair Stylist from Chocolate

.

Let’s go back

.

Hello, ok, well, I was in the Coldstream Guards for six years when I left school and on leaving the army worked in France as an adventure training instructor. I then did a lot of youth work with disengaged teenagers and worked for Connexions (I have a Royal Humane Award for bravery!). I decided to start hairdressing as I wanted a total change in jobs, starting with an apprenticeship with Hooker & Young before going Freelance, but after a few years took time away to focus and enjoy being a Dad!

.

Right about now

.

I’m working as a Freelance Hair Stylist with clients and also enjoying being involved with various photo shoots, mainly in the wedding industry. I work with clients creating and developing interesting vintage styles influenced by varied eras.

.

…So my future is simple: to be the best I can be. I’m grateful for the people that help me on the way and give back as much as I receive and I always remember that I’ve never done it all by myself.  The clusters of people around me are a continuous inspiration.

Claire Weir

Just Darling Cakes – Claire Weir

.

Let’s go back

.

I am Claire Weir (nee Darling, hence the name of the business), a largely self-taught Cake Designer based in Huddersfield. The Just Darling Cake business started off as a home based business in 2008 and moved into The Just Darling Cake Studio in November 2010, a huge leap but one that is definitely paying off.

.

Right about now

.

The business is growing fast with twice as many weddings already booked for this year than in 2011. They vary enormously from uber sophisticated glamour with silver, diamante, crystals and deep red roses to the most relaxed but lavish strawberries and cream tea party, which includes a three tier cake and a spread of scrummy scones, cupcakes, cookies and trifles. This wedding season is going to be so much fun!

.

Flash forward

.

The way in which the business is growing means that I will soon be looking to take on staff and I would love to train an apprentice from scratch and eventually have a whole team of highly skilled cake designers to work with, although we may need a bigger studio!

The Wimslow Collection (Designed By Zoë)

.

Let’s go back

.

Well it all started by accident really. I think it was in the summer of 2009 when I went to Glastonbury festival where they were selling really simple floral hair garlands. That’s where the story starts. I fell deeply, truly, madly in love with mine and returned mud splattered back to North Yorkshire vowing never to take it off. However, it broke and so the creative in me decided to make a new one, and it really worked. From there I set out with one small, but beautifully formed, wicker basket and a few headbands and sold them on the little market in Whitby during the summer. My little wicker basket turned into one table and then two tables and then travelled all around the country selling more and more elaborate pieces.

.

.

Designed By ZoeRight about now

.

The wicker basket has continued to grow and develop and really rather excitingly it is starting to get noticed. The basket, or rather floral hair adornments have had their debut appearance in Wedding Magazine, and have looked utterly fabulous at various real weddings. Currently I am focusing my attention more and more on the beautiful brides here, there and hopefully everywhere. There is nothing more fabulous than seeing the smile on  brides to be faces when their pieces, my creations, are ready to be taken home.

.

Flash Forward

.

Well Designed By Zoë has some extremely exciting news… we are rebranding and travelling to The Wimslow Collection. Fingers crossed, The Wimslow Collection will allow for me to continue producing fabulous pieces whilst maintaining the same ethos but will carry us forwards too. That ethos being to make gorgeous pieces that make people feel fabulous, resulting in making people smile and feel on top of the world. Over the next few weeks and months we will be travelling around and would love to meet you. Pop over to www.wimslow.com to find out where we will be. Also please watch out for our appearances in Brides Magazine, Wedding Magazine and Wedding Flowers over the next few months, and remember that it all started out from one little wicker basket!

Poppy Children

.

Let’s go back

.

I was brought up in the North East in Yarm.  We lived on a farm on the outskirts of town and we had loads of freedom as kids. Life was always centred around my parents’ two businesses, Strickland and Holt, a small independent department store in the middle of town and Poppy. My parents started Poppy in 1980, they were not sure if Strickland and Holt would pull through as it was in a bad way back then. So Poppy was born: they started with decor, bedding and even sold to Harrods.

.Poppy Children

Then the clothing came and from my experience it seemed a bit like Marmite, people loved it or hated it. The company did really well until the year 1998 where prints went out of fashion and British manufacture seemed to disappear. The company was mothballed in 2000.

.

I was wanting to carve my own future and desperate to do my own thing, so I went to Manchester Metropolitan to study three dimensional design consisting of product design, ceramics,glass,metal work and much more. When I left I moved to London and started working as an assistant photographer, this was really my passion at the time. It took me a while to realise it was all about numbers and technical stuff, and that basically I wasn’t very good at any of it.

.

I started working for Cath Kidston. I would be given a time table each week and I got to travel to each and every different shop around London. I soon started thinking of a business model for Poppy, based on a more lifestyle shop rather than giving people a specific product.  I learnt a lot from there and I then moved home to start Poppy.  They gave me a space to open a Poppy shop in the back of Strickland and Holt, where a lot of the garments had originally been made.

.

I decided if I drew all my own prints i could convey the old fashioned look that I wanted to. I was inspired by 1950′s children’s books, the colours and the illustrations. This is where it all started. It was important to me that a dress would be cared for and not just a cheap item to be disposed of. I wanted it to have more importance to the children. So Poppy and her dog Fred were born, this way there is always a story to be told.

.

Right about now

.

Well, I think the most exciting thing is the adults clothing, I always made a dress for me to wear at the shows I did.  People kept saying they would wear one, I didn’t believe them but in the end we thought lets try it and see, that was last autumn winter and here we are making more and more, it seems they are just like nothing else.

.

Flash Forward

.

Well the plan was always to grow Poppy more as a life style brand, and I would like to grow the bedding, accessories and also the women’s collection. I think that in terms of the wedding world, we can stir it up a bit too, our dresses have been doing well as bridesmaids dresses and offer something really unique, also it does not matter if your tiny or grown up, we have a dress to fit.

Lillian’s House by Sarah Heseltine Lillian’s House by Sarah Heseltine

Let’s go back

.

I specialised in silk screen printing at university and after graduating in 2010 with a degree in Surface Pattern Design, I started to build my own little studio, hidden away in an attic space, where I started to print again and figure out the direction in which I wanted to move.

.

Right about now

.

‘Lillian’s House’ is my exciting new adventure into the business world. Beautiful hand printed paper and fabric makes ‘Lillian’s House’ the perfect place to find something unique and delicious to adorn your home or even have in place at your wedding!

.

My most recent beautiful collection of hand printed

t-shirts and sashes for tiny bridesmaids shows the ‘Lillian’s House’ look perfectly; wonderful colour, attention to detail and a light hearted and quirky twist. Tiny details like the inclusion of the bride and groom initials in my products give a personal feel and create a keepsake for all those involved in your wedding day.

.

Flash forward

.

With all sorts of new collections being formed and exciting ideas coming into fruition, the next few months will be a busy time for ‘Lillian’s House’. April will be our official launch, with all information and sneaky peeks until then to be posted on my blog, keep reading!

Tea With Ruby – Jane DayTea With Ruby – Jane Day

.

Let’s go back

.

I am Jane Day, mother, wife and lover of china in any way shape or form which is why I am the proprietor of Tea with Ruby. I previously worked in the IT industry but you don’t want to know about that, I left it behind to be a Mum, home maker and avid china collector. You’ve probably guessed by now that I have a china hire business (due to my collection ever growing), hiring out all my bits and bobs to events to add that little bit of a vintage twist. Can you imagine sipping champagne on your big day from a vintage teacup? How delicious!

.

Right about now

.

Right now for Tea with Ruby, exciting isn’t the word. My current big adventure is being part of The Wedding Institute, a wedding event spectacular that will knock your socks off. It will be a most memorable experience for brides wanting something out of the ordinary.

.

Flash forward

.

The world is my oyster and the Tea with Ruby journey has only just begun. China hire world domination here I come, well you may as well dream big!

Let’s go back

.

I have always been a magpie and lover of all things pretty and sparkly. I remember even at school I was often sent to the headmaster for accessorising my uniform just a little too much! I harboured my passion until a year ago when the opportunity arose for me to turn this passion into a business. I hand picked a collection of well made, beautiful pieces from predominantly British designers and presented it to the world hoping it would be loved… thankfully it was and Rose & Aster was born. (Rose & Aster deriving from both mine and my daughter’s birth flowers)

.

Right about now

.

One year in and things are starting to happen for Rose & Aster. Our website is slowly becoming recognised as an exquisite place to visit for timeless, on trend, affordable, ready to wear jewellery & accessory collections for both the bride, her bridesmaids and her wedding party. My log cabin showroom is always a warm and friendly place to visit should you require a personal shopping opportunity plus there are many open days planned throughout 2012.

.

Flash forward

.

2012 is going to be an exciting year for Rose & Aster with a fabulous new highly visual website and new blog due to be launched in the Spring. The blog will concentrate on how to translate current jewellery trends for your wedding day, Jewellery icons both past and present plus general indulgence in all things beautiful and sparkly!

.

We are currently investing in what will be our best bridal jewellery collection so far plus some fabulous stand out pieces for your honeymoon. Watch out also for our expanding collection of luxurious tablet op accessories and venue decor.

After years working in IT, redundancy gave me an opportunity to change direction. I did a

Masters degree in Creative Digital Media at Teesside University, and wherever possible bent

the modules to fit in my photography. At the end of the course I decided I really needed to set

up as a photographer.

.

Right about now

.

I am currently working as a wedding and portrait photographer and I was thrilled to be given

the chance to video the Rigwood Manor shoot, if a bit nervous of swapping stills for video. I

am working on a number of weddings to take place over the summer. It is lovely getting to

know the bride and groom at such an exciting time in their lives.

.

Flash forward

.

Photographing weddings, which I love, but I would not rule anything out; so many unusual

and challenging opportunities have presented themselves in the last year. I am also in the

early stages of a personal documentary photography project, due for completion in

November.

Peeling Paint by Wendy Walker

.

Let’s go back

.

My fascination for re-loving furniture began as a hobby five years ago. Initially practising on friends pieces, the response was wonderful, the word spread, commissions followed and Peeling Paint was born.

.

Right about now

.

50% of our work is still commission driven alongside international web based sales. September 2011 saw the opening of our first showroom in North Yorkshire.

.

Flash forward

.

2012 will include the extension of our showroom space, sourcing new stockists and developing a Vintage hire service aimed at the wedding/functions/film industry. The latter was born out of meeting the amazing group of creatives at The Rigwood Manor shoot. Each person involved in day left me feeling energised and inspired and I look forward to sharing many more thoughts and ideas with them in the future.

Let’s go back

.

I’m Katie, a Yorkshire lass now at home in the North East. I’ve had a camera pretty much attached to my hand since I was about 5 years old, and after studying a degree in Photography, Video & Digital Imaging, I found myself drawn to the fabulous world of weddings. Since 2009 I’ve had the honour of photographing a stunning variety of weddings around the country. I love my job!

.

Right about now

.

Things have been going from strength to strength. I’m thrilled that next week Wedding Ideas Magazine (issue 107) will be featuring a beautiful real wedding that I photographed last year. I am also part of Just Perfect Wedding and Events Gallery which is based in Cramlington, I’ve been exhibiting my work there since October, and the feedback I’ve had from clients has been fantastic. It’s a new concept, basically a permanent wedding fair, where couples can browse in a relaxed environment and find everything they need for their wedding, it’s been great being part of such a fantastic team of exhibitors who I regularly network with, and some have become good friends.

.

Flash forward

.

I have some amazing things lined up for this year starting with a photoshoot next week, which I’ve been working on since October. It features a range of fantastic North East wedding suppliers who are getting together to create a beach themed wedding photo shoot, at the UK’s only cave bar, which also hosts wedding receptions. I also have some exciting weddings coming up, from small and intimate with two guests, to country/farm themed, to glamorous stately home celebrations. I can’t wait for what this year has to bring!

Amaryllis & Lace – A Styled Vintage Wedding Inspiration Shoot

February 13th, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

Becky Mitchell Photography

.

.

Oh I do like to start a new week in a flurry of pretty! This vintage wedding inspiration shoot was researched and organised by stationer Vicky Trainor and Becky Mitchell Photography. Pens were put to paper last Summer as ideas were jotted, concepts sketched and venue and industry collaborations were formed.  And then, they sent it to me!

.

If you are looking for a girly, vintage vibe for your wedding day, these ladies have it absolutely spot on. 

.

Flippin’ fabulous!  Be inspired…

Vicky says: The design of the shoot is loosely based on the idea of taking areas of an artist’s old Victorian drawing room. A styled area of natural objects, organised and displayed to create a still-life, that would look fitting in the corner of any artist’s/designer’s studio. Using beautiful filters of natural light through laced windows, collaged walls, blooms of botanical prints on fabrics, old vintage drawers filled with amaryllis and flowering jasmine, lace wrapped pebbles, buttons made from shell and pretty hand sewn ribbons.

Laced tablecloths, crochet edged stationery, bowls of lychees and blueberries lay alongside pretty home baked cakes decorated with frosted butter icing and blueberries and lace with an aroma of lemon and apple. The beautiful florals displayed in old stoneware were influenced by Victorian paintings that were playful and more natural in their arrangement, all in scented tones of white and antique creams with the occasional peacock feather.

.

We wanted to use a venue that would allow the freedom to be able to use an empty room like a blank canvas, to create sets and styled areas that were in keeping with the Victorian period. So what would be more fitting than using a beautiful old Victorian manor, Rigwood House in Saltburn-by-the-Sea. They kindly allowed us to work in the whole of their ground floor for two days, and what fun we had. This venue sits under the umbrella of the name ‘Be All You Can’ and it is a fabulous spacious venue if you require somewhere to hold a more creative and a more personally styled wedding.

We used vintage furniture from my own collection mixed with a selection from the company Peeling Paint. Helen Mawson of Bels Flowers arrived with her little van and wonderful bunches of sculptured amaryllis, roses, hyacinths, jasmine and potted pansies and the mix of their beautiful scent filled the room.

.

Designer Helen Stevens of Surfacephilia and I began styling the room while Helen of Bels Flowers creatively made arrangements to fit beautifully into spaces using a wonderful collection of vases and small vessels from Northern Lights Interiors.

A beautiful Japanese tea set was loaned to us by make up artist Jo Leversuch of Make Up By Jo and was filled with green tea and roses. The aroma of apple and lemon and cinnamon from the home baking was delicious and was produced by a new little home spun business called A Slice of Nostalgia. The 1970’s flocked nylon dress hanging on the collaged wall was donated by vintage specialist Margaret Garbut.

.

The crochet and lace decorated lavender stationery was from Vicky Trainor’s Cotton & Herb Collection and the embroidered and appliqué signs and decorated lace ribbons were from The Vintage Drawer.

Not only did Helen Stevens from Surfacephilia work on the styling of the photo shoot but she also agreed to be our ‘muse’ for the day, Helen wore a selection of dresses from Truly Beautiful, who are based in Guisborough as well as a pretty hand made organza decorated ribbon from DC Bouquets’ Mae Collection.

.

The wonderful tussle of bohemian curls were created by hair stylist Adrian Wray of Chocolate and the beautiful make up was applied by Jo Leversuch from Make-up By Jo.

This beautiful collection of imagery was produced by wedding photographer Becky Mitchell who also runs, with her husband Bob Mitchell, The Profile Gallery and Sitting Room Tea Shop in Saltburn-by-the-Sea. A big thank you to Bob who helped enormously over the two days. A selection of photography that focused on the detail from the ‘still-life’ table was taken by photographer Katie Byram, who supported and helped the team on the day of the shoot.

.

Wedding Photographer, Debbie Stogden, also produced a series of videos from the day focusing on ‘behind the scenes’ footage which we hope you enjoy!
