This morning on the blog I’m pleased to be sharing with you a styled shoot that took place in the city I call home, Sheffield.
Blanche Spataro, the restaurant and hospitality manager at Inox Dine, called upon a talented bunch of wedding suppliers in the city to help her show off the potential of the contemporary venue to brides and grooms through a fun styled shoot.
Featuring panoramic views of the steel city, beautiful vintage dresses and pretty blooms, as well as sophisticated choices of food and décor, this shoot is brimming with inspiration for those that crave a stylish city centre wedding.
For more about the shoot, and those involved, we’ll let Blanche do the talking.

blanche says: Inox Dine is a stylish new wedding venue based in the centre of Sheffield. The venue includes a contemporary restaurant and bar and first-class event suites with capacity for up to 120 guests for a wedding breakfast. It’s also available for civil ceremonies in the restaurant and the Discovery Rooms, which have stunning views across Sheffield.
The team at Inox Dine are passionate about providing a bespoke service to suit every couple’s requirements. Part of the unique experience of a wedding at Inox includes catering by award winning head chef Joe Berry, and his team, using only the freshest, seasonal produce from Sheffield’s finest local producers.
To showcase the venue and all that it includes, we approached photographer Shelley Richmond, who we know adores working with other suppliers, about doing a wedding photo shoot at Inox Dine and we’re delighted with the results.
We wanted to create a chic city style wedding perfect for modern couples with a sophisticated and glamorous style. Being located in the University of Sheffield students’ union building, we also wanted to create a look that would appeal to young, fun couples. The suppliers involved in the photo shoot helped us create the varying couples’ looks perfectly.
The sheath silk dresses and vintage 60s dress were provided by Sheffield dressmaker Kate Beaumont. Within her studio at her beautiful Victorian home, she has a wonderful collection of original vintage gowns available for purchase, crafts her own exquisite collection pieces for brides and also offers a completely bespoke design service.
The futuristic leather dresses and 1950s yellow polka dot dress meanwhile, were provided by KMR Bespoke Bridal Designer, a contemporary bridal wear company that designs and hand makes wedding dresses to fit brides’ specifications. Dressmaker Kelly allows each client to be part of the design process, creating a one-off bespoke gown that is made-to-measure.
Finishing touches were then provided by award-winning florist Tracey Campbell, of Campbell’s Flowers, who created some stunning arrangements to complement the model’s looks and the stylish setting, and Steel City Cakes, because no wedding is complete without cake!
