Be Inspired….The Harrogate Wedding Lounge on Pinterest


Love it or hate Pinterest is BIG. The wedding world and brides in particular love its ability to bring together your dream day in all its pictorial glory. Some people say Pinterest just sets you up for disappointment, aspiring for things that are not possible or would be extremely expensive or time consuming to achieve.

The collection of images below is the board I created when i was redesigning our brand and was a useful tool for conveying my aspirations to my graphic designer.

Our style

Peach and gold table.Colors for bridesmaidsSo glamorouspeach and gold. so yummy.peach and gold!ColourInitial Rubber StampColoursTypeType...peach sparkle satin ribbonpeach and goldPeach and goldPaletteBlush pink and gold.blush pink macarons and gold standgold sparklesequins"Breanna" Perfume Bottle             From the Blush Collection.  •Marbled pink glass jar is hand-blown in Portugal.  •On the topper, multiple layers of hand-painted blush-tone enamel detail sculptural golden metal petals for a satin effect.  •Clear hand-set Swarovski® crystals sparkle on an arabesque broochblush pink.blush pink

Of course you have to be realistic. For example getting carried away pinning lots of images from a photographer you did a wedding in beautiful sunshine in July running through fields with sun streaming through the tree branches will not work on a slightly dull November day when you get married at 3pm. See what I mean? 

Our Sunshine and Doves board – One of our favorite color schemes

My new favorite colours

Personally I LOVE Pinterest, The people I follow inspire me every day. From window displays to floral arrangements, a new bathroom suite to some outdoor furniture, the world of possibilities out there excites me. We use it to plan our styled photo shoots, changes to our window displays, and of course to highlight themes and colour schemes to our brides. We also have a board for each of our designers to show the collections we carry in store and my team and I even use it to plan the things we need to buy, what are we missing in the shop?

The Journey of Love – Weddings on board the Northern Belle

Weddings on board the Northern Belle

Last weekend I attended an amazing wedding show at the National Railway Museum in York organized by Brides Up North during the event I was lucky enough to grab a quick look around Station Hall where the beautiful royal carriages stand at the platforms like time capsules filled with fine furniture and china.

There is something so romantic about this mode of transport. Vibrant colours, fabrics and paintings from a bygone era, sparkling crystal and heaps of nostalgic charm. the whole lovely day reminded me of a shoot we were involved with last year on board a very special train….

Late last year I was invited to take part in a very exciting photo shoot on board the Northern Belle, sister train to the Venice Simplon Orient Express. For those of you unaware, The Northern Belle now hosts wedding celebrations on board and the shoot was commissioned to showcase the train and what a wonderfully nostalgic, luxurious and romantic venue it is for a wedding with a difference.

The Shoot was organized by Helen Davies of The Wedding Concierge along with the help of talented photographer Cat Hepple  The pair brought together an amazing team to create an inspiring and beautiful story on board the train and the results were simply fantastic….

We used some stunning gowns for this shoot, we wanted to really demonstrate how different looks could work with this unconventional yet beautiful setting.

For the arrival of the Bride and Groom including the dinner shots in the carriage the bride wears the Mia Mia Mistletoe dress, Chic 70′s flair £POA from the Harrogate Wedding Lounge

For the corridor and external shots the bride wears Mia Mia Clematis, Pretty and Elegant with a show stopping back detail £POA from The Harrogate Wedding Lounge

For the evening and dancing shots the brides wears the stunning Platinum dress by Ronald Joyce is a soft Oyster colour with a cowl back and lots of sparkle and glamor. £POA from the Harrogate Wedding Lounge

 Here is a beautiful video of the shoot from the fabulously creative Emma from Story Of Your Day  if you have yet to come across Emma’s work please do take a look at her website I cant think of anyone more perfect to capture the memories of your big day on film.

A ‘behind the scenes’ film on board The Northern Belle – sister train to the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express from Story of Your Day on Vimeo.
