It’s off to Ormskirk, Lancs this evening as we join Caroline and Stuart to share in their gorgeous Real Wedding.  Caroline chose to style her day with an abundance of floral displays – to blooming beautiful effect!

Caroline says:  We got engaged in Cyprus in July 2012 and were married on 11th October 2013 at West Tower Country House Hotel, Ormskirk.

We had looked at about thirteen venues across the North West but we couldn’t decide on any. There was something not right about all of them for us, but then we visited West Tower and it was absolutely perfect. Beautiful setting, friendly staff, incredibly organised – it just felt right.

I stayed at Formby Hall the night before with my family and bridesmaids and my chief drove us over to the West Tower in the morning where we got ready.

I chose quite a vintage style dress. It was Mocha in colour with cream lace over the top. It was a Charlotte Balbier dress from The White Closet in Didsbury.

After lots of shopping around and trying on, the bridesmaids were in navy dresses from Coast and the groomsmen were in grey tails from Groom in Liverpool.

I carried a hand tied bouquet of whites and creams, the majority of which were roses.  We used Flowerstyle by Laurie who is in Formby – an absolutely amazing florist.

I loved every bit of the day!  I really enjoyed getting ready with bridesmaids in the morning, I loved the actual ceremony which surprised us both, the speeches were fantastic and I finished off the day dancing with my new husband and then my Dad! Just seeing everyone having a blast was amazing!

After the wedding we went to Australia for an epic honeymoon for five and a half weeks, stopping in Dubai on the way home.

My top tip for other Brides Up North is that flowers make such an impact. Shop around for the best but always barter!

Congratulations Caroline & Stuart!

Sparkling Romance. Justin Alexander For A Twinkly Vintage Wedding At Mitton Hall – Jennifer & Ryan

March 10th, 2014 | Julia Braime

Project Valentine

We’re all smiles in the Brides Up North office this morning after a very, very lovely day at our Brides Up North Super Showcase Grand Wedding Exhibition yesterday at Ramside Hall Hotel.  I commented on Facebook last night that I’ve not seen so many excited brides and grooms in one place for a while, and it was great to see you all – another cracker of a day!  Thank you to our fabulous exhibitors who packed the huge banqueting spaces with wedding pretty and each and every one of you who came along to support the Northern Revolution.

Snaps to you!

Right back to it this morning as we join Jennifer and Ryan for their twinkly vintage Real Wedding at Mitton Hall.  With images by Project Valentine, this is one sparkling celebration.  Take it easy this Monday morning, and feel the love…

Project Valentine

Jennifer says:  On my birthday (21st December 2012) there was an extra present under the tree which was a bunch of cupcakes made to look like roses with ‘Will You Marry Me?’ written on the centre one.

Project Valentine

We were married on 23rd December 2013 at Mitton Hall, Mitton, Whalley.  We chose the venue because it was a mixture of old and new. It is a 15th century building with old dark wood and balconies and has a new extension that is light and modern.

I chose a vintage theme for the wedding.  I wanted to find a bridesmaid dress first that everyone would be happy with and decided that would be the colour scheme. These were ivory, pink and purple so we used this throughout the decorations.

I bought my dress from Lulu Browns in Whalley. It was a Justin Alexander dress, I fell in love with it when I saw it. It had the vintage lace feel but it was heavily embellished with sequins and beads.

Our favourite part of the day was when all the ceremony and speeches had been done we could finally relax and enjoy the party with our guests. We used SJ Enterprises and they provided a DJ, chocolate fountain and casino tables so there wasn’t a gap between the night and day.

For our honeymoon we are looking forward to going to Greece in the Summer.

My top tip for other Brides Up North would be to seek help where appropriate.  I am quite creative and found it hard not to do everything by myself. I made all the stationery but it did stress me out slightly. The best thing I did was get suppliers to do the table dressing – it just made it so special. I even considered making the cake myself but I am glad we bought one in the end!

Congratulations Jennifer & Ryan!

A Cool Classic. A Sanyukta Shrestha Gown For A Real Wedding At Goldsborough Hall – Colleen & Richard

March 3rd, 2014 | Julia Braime

Laura Calderwood Photography - Goldsborough Hall Wedding

Yesterday I spent the day at the glorious Allerton Castle (our fifth event at this beautiful venue) surrounded by beautiful brides, supremely talented local wedding industry suppliers, gorgeous gowns – they seem to get better year on year – floral towers, hand crafted cakes, bespoke stationery and fancy hats.  All that plus photographers, a photo booth, cars, cupcakes, honeymoons, menswear, magic… diamonds… you name it.  It was a wonderfully relaxed and happy day in a perfect setting, and felt so luxurious and lovely to be there.  I hope that every bride and groom attending enjoyed the special day and felt the love in the room.  I certainly did!  There’s plenty more lovely where that came from too… check out the fabulous events we still have planned across three regions this season, and be sure to clear those diaries!

For now though, online is where the magic is at, as we stay in Yorkshire to join Brides Up North reader Colleen and her new husband Richard for their own sumptuous celebration at Goldsborough Hall.  I love Colleen and Richard’s cool yet classic Christmas styling with just a touch of elegant quirkiness.  But then, when you’re as pretty as these two, a paper bag would look good!  Enjoy their beautiful day.

Colleen says:  We got engaged at Bunker Bay, Western Australia on September 21st 2013 and were married on 30th December 2013 at Goldsborough Hall near Harrogate.

We chose Goldsborough Hall because it has the perfect mix of elegance and comfort, which we found suited us perfectly.  The panelled library with its large stone fireplace and chesterfield sofas was a unique and beautiful space to have our reception drinks. It was turned into a ‘disco library’ later in the evening.

We also had exclusive use of the venue, including the six gorgeous suites on the top floor. I was able to get dressed in the amazing Presidential Suite after travelling from The Majestic Hotel in Harrogate to the venue.

Goldsborough also offers a group breakfast the following morning for those who stayed at the Hall. It was one of the best parts of the wedding experience to enjoy a relaxed full English breakfast with loved ones after the hype of the wedding.

We wanted the day to be simple and romantic and chose an ivory and burgundy colour scheme. 

Laura Calderwood Photography - Goldsborough Hall Wedding

I carried a simple hand-tied bouquet of white roses and gypsophila.

Laura Calderwood Photography - Goldsborough Hall Wedding

I wore a simple long “vintage” style dress designed by Sanyukta Shrestha. I bought it from her wedding dress boutique Behuli in Fulham, London. The dress itself was made from a bamboo/silk blend. The short-sleeved bolero was made of handmade French lace. The belt was beaded with shell beads.

My shoes were 1940s vintage embroidered silk and leather. I got them from Catherine Smith Vintage in Harrogate.

Instead of a veil I wore a beautiful silver hair piece – from Behuli – and I accessorised with a string of pearls and pearl earrings.  I also wore a vintage brown mink cape for our outdoor photographs.  I got that from Fat Faced Cat in Angel, London. 

Laura Calderwood Photography - Goldsborough Hall Wedding

Richard wore a three-piece suit, made to measure at The Cad and The Dandy, Saville Row, London. His burgundy tie and pocket square matched the groomsmen’s from TM Lewin. His shoes were single monk straps from Church’s.

Laura Calderwood Photography - Goldsborough Hall Wedding

We decided to let the bridesmaids and groomsmen choose their own dresses and suits.

We quite liked the idea of having everyone wear something unique to themselves. The only guideline we gave the bridesmaids was on the colour – burgundy. They all wore a pearl drop necklace from Blennerhasset Fine Jewellers, Perth Western Australia – a gift from the bride.

The groomsmen wore different suits, from dark blue to light grey. Their ties and pocket squares were burgundy – a gift from the groom from TM Lewin.

Laura Calderwood Photography - Goldsborough Hall Wedding

had my hair and makeup done by Harriet Steele. She is a mobile makeup artist and hairdresser. She was wonderful and travelled to my hotel the morning of the wedding. She was such a calming influence and definitely got the day off to a good start!

Laura Calderwood Photography - Goldsborough Hall Wedding

Goldsborough Hall has a beautiful little baby grand piano in the bay window of the ceremony room, so we hired a pianist from The Event Music Company, Leeds to play as the guests arrived. He also played during the ceremony – Processional: Air in F by Handel; Signing of the Register: Pavane by Fauré; Recessional: Prelude to Te Deum by Charpentier.

We served mulled wine during the drinks reception. It was a cold day so it was a nice touch for a winter wedding.

Our florist was Helen James Flowers, Harrogate.  They do beautiful, classy flower arrangements and bouquets. Our table centrepieces were simple and elegant and played on the idea of it being a winter wedding. There were large hurricane lamp candle-holders surrounded by a wreath of winter foliage, white roses, small red roses, gypsophila and red berries.

I wouldn’t say we intentionally added this, but given that it was winter and just after Christmas, there was a big Christmas tree in the dining room and there were various other Christmas decorations of good taste throughout the venue. It added a nice touch to the winter feel of the wedding.

Laura Calderwood Photography - Goldsborough Hall Wedding

We chose to have a cupcakes and a small cake by Moorish Cakes in Ilkley. The cupcakes were actually a gluten-free sponge, half were chocolate the other half were vanilla, with a vanilla buttercream frosting. The cake was a traditional vanilla sponge cake, with strawberry jam between the layers, covered with a white vanilla fondant icing.

Laura Calderwood Photography - Goldsborough Hall Wedding

Our wedding favours were shortbreads made by my mother-in-law. It added a nice touch to such a small wedding. And they were delicious!

Laura Calderwood Photography - Goldsborough Hall Wedding

We chose a DJ in the evening, Jonny Ross Music.  He was brilliant on the night had had a keen sense of what the people in the room wanted to dance to.

Laura Calderwood Photography - Goldsborough Hall Wedding

Laura Calderwood Photography - Goldsborough Hall Wedding

Although I was dreading it, my favourite part of the day was the first dance. The formalities of the ceremony were complete so the first dance was just a very joyous, happy moment where Richard and I were able to sink into being husband and wife for the first time.

We are hopeless dancers so asked my parents for some lessons a couple days before the wedding. We spent an evening trolling through Spotify jumping from song to song and trying to dance. Most of the time we were terrible, but once we found one we could dance to together (Cheek to Cheek, Ella Fitzgerald) I was less stressed about doing it on the day.

Laura Calderwood Photography - Goldsborough Hall Wedding

My top tip for other Brides Up North would be to remember it’s about the two of you. It’s easy to forget that the wedding is only the start of something. All that matters after the wedding is how you two are together. So choose the details of your wedding for yourselves, and let your wedding be a reflection of your relationship and your personalities. You’ll end up forgetting all about these details on the day anyway! It really does become just about each other.

Also, if you can find a venue with accommodation it is a great addition. It’s really nice to be able to walk up to your room after a long and emotional day.

Laura Calderwood Photography - Goldsborough Hall Wedding

Congratulations Colleen & Richard!

In Deep. Antique Lace & Paper Pom Poms For A Real Wedding At Victoria Baths, Manchester – Laura & Nathan

February 27th, 2014 | Julia Braime

James Tracey Photography

Last week when I blogged an interview with our wonderful Featured Supplier and ex copper, James Tracey Photography, I led the piece with an image of a beaming bride at a colourful altar and over on Facebook lots of you fell in love with her.  Well, her name is Laura and you were right to go head over heels – because it seems she’s rather fabulous.  I’m back this afternoon to feature Laura and Nathan’s fabulously cool and quirky swimming pool wedding (yes, I’ve never seen one of those before either!) in all it’s glory. 

This has to be one of my favourites to date.

Laura says:  We got engaged in October 2013 in Saint-Cirq Lapopie (in the South of France). We were on our holiday with our six month old baby boy and Nathan got a sudden urge to ask me to marry him. It was a beautiful spot by the river. It wasn’t planned so he found a twig and tied it in a knot around my wedding finger.

James Tracey Photography

James Tracey Photography

We have been together for 18 years (we met at school when we were 16!) and finally tied the knot on 27th May 2013 at Victoria Baths, Manchester.

Victoria Baths is part of the restoration project. It was opened in 1906 as a swimming baths and Turkish baths.  The restoration of the building begin in 1995. It is a beautiful old building with ornate stain glass windows. One day they hope to restore the swimming pools themselves and open it up again to the public.

We actually got married in the old male swimming pool in the deep end!

James Tracey Photography

James Tracey Photography

We wanted to get married somewhere that was a little different and allowed us to do what we wanted.  Victoria Baths allows you to hire out the entire building and you are able to bring your own caterers, music and decorations in.

We wanted the day to be very relaxed with a feel of a street party. No formalities so everyone could relax and have fun!  We chose a colour scheme of pale pink and green.

The bridesmaids wore pink dresses and the groom, best man and ushers wore pink ties.  The tiles of the swimming baths are green so we hung pink and green paper pom poms from the ceiling along with bunting.

James Tracey Photography

I wanted something every simple for my wedding dress. I visited Jane Bourvis in London after a friend recommended her. Jane owns a small shop in Notting Hill and as soon as you walk in you are greeted with antique lace hanging from the ceiling. Jane told me she had just restored some lace the night before. She dressed me in a pale cream slip and placed the lace petticoat over the top. It was stunning and a one off. I bought it within half an hour of walking into the shop. I just felt special. There was a story behind it too as an elderly lady in Scotland had found her mothers veil in the loft and that was what Jane used to create the dress – old Scottish lace.

James Tracey Photography

The bridesmaids each wore a lace dress which I bought from a beach side shop in Cape Town. I just saw them and knew they would match the dress and that each of the bridesmaids would like the style.

Nathan wore a tailored suit from A Suit That Fits. The best man and ushers wore their own suits with a pink tie.

James Tracey Photography

My friend has a beautiful old beetle called Gracie. He came to the hotel to pick me up (complete with a flat cap) and drove me to the baths.

It was a family affair!  My cousin is a register so he married us and my other cousin works at the Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM) so he arrange for four different bands to play:  a string quartet to walk down the aisle to, an acoustic guitar whist we drank fizz, a two piece acoustic band and a 9 piece disco band.  Amazing!

10 of my closest friends and family made cakes for the deserts. There were some amazing cakes ranging from carrot cake, lemon drizzle and early great tea muffins. Everyone just helped themselves.

We had 45 children at the wedding so we had to provide entertainment. We hired two nanny’s to look after the babies and provided lots of toys. We hired a bouncy castle to go in the female pool and we created a cinema with a big screen and lots of popcorn and bean bags so the kids to watch a film. It was nice as the adults could have a rest and enjoy the fizz.

At the end of the day we planned a big surprise for everyone. We didn’t know how well it would go down. We hired 150 headsets and held a silent disco in the main hall. At first everyone didn’t quite know what to make of it. By the end of the night everyone was dancing their hearts out. We had three different channels with different types of music. There was some crazy dancing going on.

We went to the Lake District for a few days after the wedding and found cosy pubs to relax in.  Bliss!

James Tracey Photography

I kept sneaking away for a few minutes every now and again – either with Nathan or own my own to just catch my breath and smile. So my top tip for other Brides Up North would be that it’s nice to stop for a few minutes and reflect on things throughout the day itself.

James Tracey Photography

Congratulations Laura & Nathan!

Delicate Treasures. Supplier Showcase: Ophelia May PLUS Exclusive Discount For Wedding Blog Readers!

February 17th, 2014 | Julia Braime

Georgina Shellard for Ophelia May

Madeline

I’m starting the week with something simply gorgeous (hey, isn’t that how we always start the week here at Brides Up North) and introducing another of my super creative Featured Suppliers – Jenny of bespoke accessories brand Ophelia May.  I’ve had the privilege of seeing and trying Jenny’s beautiful collection at one of our Brides Up North luxury events and let me tell you, these pieces are even more delicate and delectable in real life than on these pretty pages. 

And the cherry on top?  Ophelia May is also offering Brides Up North readers an exclusive 15% discount on all orders placed by midnight on 16th March 2014 using the code BUNweb15.  If I were you, I’d hightailing it over to Jenny’s online shop right now, before the rest get there first.

In the meantime, let’s say hello…

Georgina Shellard for Ophelia May 

Roselyn

Tell us about Ophelia May and how it all began? 

Ophelia May offers beautiful vintage inspired bridal accessories and hair adornments. Each piece is individually handcrafted, with delicate embroidery and embellished with scatterings of Swarovski crystals, tiny pearls and seed beads. The collections are designed using beautiful silks, Scottish lace and vintage bits, to produce a unique selection of intricate head pieces and bridal sashes.

I have always had a particular interest in bygone eras and find that this often translates into my work sometimes even unintentionally. I am forever collecting vintage fabrics, jewellery, beads and pearls as well as fragments of antique lace. Not only do these inspire me to create beautiful pieces but they can also be incorporated into the designs, ensuring no two pieces will ever be quite the same.

Following my degree in Textile Crafts, where I specialised in Embroidery, I did a placement with a bridal designer in London. I then went on to work in the fashion industry as a designer but I always missed the creativity of designing for the bridal market so I jumped at the chance to set up my own company. I hope brides will get as much pleasure wearing my pieces as I get from creating them!

What bridal accessories are available to buy at Ophelia May? 

Beautiful hair adornments, wrist corsages and stunning bridal sashes are available in the current collection. I am also currently designing a range of bridal veils and garters, which will be introduced in future collections.

Georgina Shellard for Ophelia May

Christina

Georgina Shellard for Ophelia May

Georgina Shellard for Ophelia May

Where do you get your inspiration from?

I find inspiration in so many things – film, nature, vintage magazines and fashion, both modern and historical. I love seeing the latest collections from bridal gown designers and making pieces that compliment their designs.

Also, my inspiration often comes from the materials I use, whether it’s a vintage brooch or a delicate fragment of lace from a vintage dress. I love to look around charity shops, vintage fairs and antique markets. London’s Portobello Road is a great place to delve into, as it is full of bric-a-brac, antiques and beautiful vintage finds, perfect for sparking ideas.

Georgina Shellard for Ophelia May

Clementine

Georgina Shellard for Ophelia May

Georgina Shellard for Ophelia May

What bridal accessory trends have been popular in 2013 and what trends do you see emerging in 2014 and beyond?

The vintage trend remained popular throughout 2013, particularly the Twenties and Thirties, with the release of period dramas in film and television such as The Great Gatsby and Downton Abbey and I think this will continue into 2014. Headbands and smaller hair adornments will continue to emerge, with intricate embellishments, lace and plenty of sparkle to reflect the decadence of the Jazz Age.

There is also an emphasis on Nature in the 2014 trends, with floral details and embroidery appearing on headpieces and bridal sashes. Oversized silk flowers and hints of colour will add a dramatic statement for any bride wanting to create the perfect boho look.

Georgina Shellard for Ophelia May

Daisy

Georgina Shellard for Ophelia May

What can Brides Up North expect when they use your service?

I am very passionate about every piece I make. All the designs are individually and completely handmade in the studio. Each petal is hand cut and shaped, all embellishments and embroidery are delicately done by hand and all elements are carefully hand-sewn together to produce a truly unique product of the highest quality for every bride.

What is your current favourite piece and why?

I love all the pieces in the collection, but the Annalise lace bridal halo is a personal favourite as it’s so versatile. It can be worn across the forehead, as a normal headband and it looks stunning worn at the back to compliment a gorgeous up-do. With its intricate array of crystals and beading, it will add a touch of sparkly vintage glamour to your special day!

Georgina Shellard for Ophelia May

Annalise

Tell us about your bespoke service?

Our bespoke service is for those brides looking for the perfect accessory to complete their bridal outfit but who can’t find seem to find it. Every piece can be fully customised to suit each bride. If you love an existing design and would like something similar, then fabric, accents and colours can be altered. Or maybe you would like a combination of two designs?

I can also create something completely new and unique, handmade just for you to match your theme or your dress. Any cut offs or spare lace from your wedding dress can be used for a bridal sash or even incorporated into a hair accessory.

Georgina Shellard for Ophelia May

Isabella

Isla

Do you make pieces that would be appropriate for Bridesmaids? 

Several of the smaller pieces would be perfect for bridesmaids, such as the Rose hair clip or the Nellie hair pins. These can be made in a variety of colours to match the bridesmaids’ dresses.

Georgina Shellard for Ophelia May

Melody

Georgina Shellard for Ophelia May

Can brides incorporate their sentimental jewellery into a piece? 

Yes, absolutely. Family heirlooms or treasured jewellery can be incorporated into your design, creating a unique keepsake for future generations. I love to create pieces this way, as these special objects have a history of their own and have the ability to evoke strong emotional sentiments, making them truly personal to the bride.

Georgina Shellard for Ophelia May

Nellie

Tell us about your personalised embroidery?

Items can be delicately hand embroidered with names, dates or a significant quote, for that extra special touch. This can be applied to anything from a bridal sash to a cherished handkerchief.

Natural Vintage. Maggie Sottero For A Real Tipi Wedding In Durham – Kathryn & Dean

February 6th, 2014 | Julia Braime

SDS Photography

A tortoise in a tutu, heaps of lace, pearls and roses and a Real Wedding in a tipi in my home town.  Thursday mornings don’t get much better than that!  Today we join North East couple Kathryn and Dean for their celebration under canvas in County Durham.

With images by SDS Photography

SDS Photography

Kathryn says:  We got engaged on Christmas Day 2012. Dean had planned different scenarios on how and where he was going to propose, depending on the weather. Because it didn’t snow outside, he made it snow inside. Dean covered the living room in fake snow and played our favourite Christmas song – there was a big box in the middle of the room filled with lots of smaller boxes (like Russian dolls). I had wanted a watch for Christmas so when I got to the last box, it was quite big so I thought it was the watch, but there was nothing inside it – I looked up and Dean had big sheets of card with the words of our favourite Christmas song “All I want for Christmas is You”, after each card he dropped the cards, one by one; “Love Actually” style. After the last one he got down on one knee and pulled out a ring box with a gorgeous diamond ring in! Needless to say by this point I was in tears and obviously said yes!

We were married on 26th October 2013 at Elvet Methodist Church in Durham followed by a reception in giant tipis in a friend’s field close to Ushaw College.

We had 5 giant tipis supplied by Special Event Tipis, they were joined together to make one huge marquee style space, one of which was the bar and chill out area, and one was for the band and dance floor area, and the other 3 were the main seating area for the meal. We had over 170 guests during the day with an additional 70 in the evening.

SDS Photography

We chose to use tipis because we fancied something a little different!  My sister and I used to have a business supplying chair covers and sashes for weddings so I had been to most venues in the North East so I wanted something totally different and special!

As soon as I went the visit the tipis, I knew they were exactly what I wanted. Dean wasn’t able to see the tipis before the wedding so he was a little sceptical about the idea, he only saw them the day before the wedding when we were setting them up, but he highly approved, much to my relief.

We went for a natural and vintage feel with lots of lace & pearls. We also had a recurrent theme of logs; from a picture of a tree stump in the corner of our invitations with our initials carved in it, hollowed out tree stumps and logs filled with flowers for the table centre pieces and giant slices of bark covered tree trunk were used as cake stands for our traditional wedding cake and cheese wedding cake.

Our colour scheme was quite neutral with pale gold and ivory.

My dress was from the Wedding Wardrobe at Chester-le-Street and was a Maggie Sottero dress called Grace. It was a very pale gold satin covered in ivory lace. To make it my own, I bought a handmade vintage style necklace and bracelet and had the necklace sewed into the front of my dress under the bust and the bracelet was attached to the top of my veil. I had these removed after the wedding to keep and wear as jewellery.

I had too many close friends and sisters to choose from so decided to only have four small bridesmaids, my nieces. I got their dresses from BHS and teamed them with a cream cardigan from John Lewis. The dresses were pale gold satin with a lace bodice, they matched my dress perfectly!

The men wore dark navy, 3 piece suits which we bought from Next (it proved quite difficult as the men live all over the country) with a white shirt and vintage gold patterned tie form M&S. I also had my nephew as a page boy who wore a navy suit form Monsoon and we had one of the mens’ ties made smaller to fit him.

I had a beautiful bouquet which had white avalanche roses, Roralie roses which were a pale peach/cream colour, talea roses which were a vintage peach/champagne colour, spray snowflake roses, white hydrangea and wax flowers and we also added old brooches which I had collected from antiques fairs and strings of pearls to keep the vintage theme going.  All our flowers were by Country Style at Langley Park.

We travelled in a cream VW split screen Campervan from Lovedub Cars called Chaz – he was beautiful.

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.

A Sparkling Affair. An Intimate & Twinkling Real Wedding At Rudding Park, Harrogate – Sarah & Ed

January 24th, 2014 | Julia Braime

Wooden Hill Images

Todays small but twinkly real wedding is such a splendid affair – a stunning bride (don’t you just love her hair?), an ornate setting, perfect details and only the people there that really count.  And that last bit, that is what really counts, isn’t it?

Sarah and Ed’s wedding was shot by Abi at Wooden Hill Images, and I hope you love it as much as we do. 

Wooden Hill Images

Sarah says:  We got engaged in May 2010 in Windsor Great Park in Berkshire, near where we lived at the time. It was overlooking a lake by a small bridge while out with our dog Poppy.

Wooden Hill Images

We were married at Bilton House, which is Harrogate Registry Office in North Yorkshire on 19th December 2013, and afterwards at Rudding Park Hotel.  We choose Rudding Park Hotel because we had previously stayed there for a weekend break and had a great time, and I am originally from North Yorkshire so it had the close to home feel.

Wooden Hill Images

We choose to have a small intimate wedding as we have two young children, Will (3 years) and Tom (1 year) who we wanted to be part of the day, with our immediate family and a few close friends.

Our theme was a 1920’s/30’s Great Gatsby/Downtown Wedding set against the backdrop of Christmas with a gold, ivory and a touch of subtle green colour scheme to blend into the 1920’s and Christmas colours.

Wooden Hill Images

I chose the Stephanie Allin Ingrid dress from the Jazz Age Collection from Anne Priscilla Bridal in Glasgow.  I was lucky enough that the designer of the dress I choose was in the shop in Glasgow when I was there and I ended up getting a personalised sketch of the dress!

My headpiece was by Jenny Packham, make up by Mel England and hair by Emily Hawkes

Wooden Hill Images

We didn’t have bridesmaids or groomsmen, but our boys wore a mix and match of cord and tweed suits, with little converse shoes to give a ‘cool kiddie’ finish.

I carried a bouquet of calla lilies from Wedding & Events reminiscent of the period.

Guests were collected from Rudding Park on at 1920’s vintage bus from a company called Yesteryear, and taken to and from the registry and Sarah travelled with William who walked her down the registry aisle.

For the pre dinner reception we had a harpist (Anita Aslan from Harping On) playing a mix of Christmas music and other songs appropriate for the occasion and a two piece 1920’s band called The Gershwin Gang for some music into the evening. Both entertainment choices were based on the small nature of the wedding with only 20 guests and 5 children and to keep the theme and fun running throughout the day.

Wooden Hill Images

Wooden Hill Images

The favours for Ladies were vintage chocolates from Betty’s and for the men, Scottish themed stag bottle openers, which combined Yorkshire and Scotland.

Ed is Scottish and us organising everything from our home in Perthshire meant it was important for us to blend everything across the colours and themes even though we hadn’t seen certain things first hand.

Alex at Simply Bows & Chair Covers dressed the venue to perfection!

We chose a fruit cake centre piece with a monogram with our initials from our invitations, then cupcakes with feathers and a sequin finish matching my dress.  The cake was by Homebaked Heaven

My favourite part of the day was arriving back to Rudding Park at dusk with all the twinkling lights, harp music and a mulled wine reception.

For our honeymoon we stayed an extra couple of nights at Rudding park ourselves and plan to return in 2014.

Wooden Hill Images

My top tip for other Brides Up North would be don’t be afraid to do a small wedding, and you won’t have to compromise on quality.  Trust your suppliers to apply their own interpretation of your theme. 

Wooden Hill Images

 

Congratulations Sarah & Ed!

Would you like to share your own Real Wedding with Brides Up North?  I’d love to hear from you – here’s how

The Vintage Garden. A Contemporary Styled Bridal Shoot In Lancashire

January 23rd, 2014 | Julia Braime

CT Images

This morning we are bringing vintage styling up to date with a modern beauty twist as we join a collective of North West wedding industry suppliers for a last wedding breakfast at a Lancashire landmark venue. 

Alison McMath will be just one of our fabulous suppliers at our Brides Up North Luxury & Vintage Bridal Exhibitions in the North West this Spring, make sure to put the date in your diary and pre-register now! 

Cheshire 2014

But back to today’s action first.  Cat of CT Images says:  We are an all female wedding industry team in the Lancashire area and we wanted to play around with concepts of ‘vintage’ and bringing the past up-to-date.

CT Images

CT Images

The shoot took place as the last pictures ever to be taken at Pickerings Country Hotel in Garstang, which has been the setting for numerous weddings over the years. The overgrown English country and apple-laden garden became the backdrop for the autumn shoot.

CT Images

We wanted to demonstrate that contemporary hair and makeup styling can give vintage bridal gowns a new lease of life, freeing them of any constraints. The hairstyles took inspiration from different past eras and were all linked together with a more contemporary and daring bridal makeup style. Definitely more adventurous but still in keeping with beauty and romance, which is what every bride desires on her wedding day.
