Once upon a time in a Secret Garden- a Yorkshire wedding inspiration scene
Last June York Wedding suppliers came together under the direction of Natalia Willmott to create a magical scene- a styled photoshoot around the fabulous rambling rose Gislaine de Feligonde which grows several meters in height in her garden in Stillingfleet.
This photoshoot was done to highlight the groups different skills but also as inspiration for couples to be. It was loosely inspired by the Secret Garden novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett which was based in Yorkshire and published in 1911.
Natalia integrated certain elements of the novel such as roses, a ladder, a robin and key and every single member contributed by adding their products or services to the scene.
York wedding suppliers created this lovely soft image in pale pinks and coral to capture the English countryside and the romance of a wedding.
A three tier cake by baker Nicola who owns O’Crumbs decorated with flowers from Gaynor of Gayflowers and resting on a bark board from Treasured Occasions creates a beautiful focal point.
Gaynor also created fabulous centrepieces and a bride’s bouquet with a variety of flowers and skeleton leaves which looked so beautiful with the wedding dress from Bridal Reloved a shop specialising in preloved dresses.
The table and scene is also decorated with custom made stationary by Blush creations and beautiful scented candles favours by PQ soy wax candles and antique ribbons from My Billet Doux and pretty vintage combs by Unique hair combs.
There is also stunning and elegant pieces of silver and pearl jewellery handmade by Jo Bagshaw and a love note ring cushion by My Billet Doux.
“It is a celebration of our beautiful Yorkshire, a truly collaborative feast for the eyes and it captures the essence of our group”
