Vintage glamour for Holly & Adam’s Peak Edge Hotel wedding, with Shaun Taylor Photography

Every time I scroll through the images from Holly & Adam’s Derbyshire wedding I fall in love with them all over again! This is truly beautiful: a wedding bursting with vintage glamour, with a wonderful focus on beautiful flowers and plenty of personal touches. Not forgetting those light up letters… I think I need some of these in my life!

Holly and Adam married at the Peak Edge Hotel in Chesterfield, Derbyshire. Their wedding decor was inspired by Pinterest, created with the help of friends and family and made unique by Holly’s own style and creativity.

Our wedding report: Holly & Adam

Wedding photographer’s website:

www.shauntaylorphotography.co.uk

Were you pleased with your wedding photographer?

Yes- he was fantastic! He kept everyone in good spirits on the day and got creative with pictures even when the thunder started! We managed to capture some really gorgeous shots even though it rained until 4pm.

Wedding venue:

The Peak Edge Hotel, Stonedge, Chesterfield.

Can you describe your wedding in a single sentence?

A beautiful day when I married my best friend.

What was your reaction to seeing your wedding photos for the first time?

Emotional! The day always goes so quickly so to have time to sit and go through them was wonderful. Shaun managed to perfectly capture the day, and looking at the pictures reminds me exactly how I felt at that point on the day.

Your wedding style and theme:

Vintage glamour.

Any happy tears on the day?

Yes! I cried during Adam’s speech when he said some beautiful words, Adam ‘almost’ cried when he saw me walking down the aisle but held it together. There were lots of tears by friends and family throughout the day, mostly on the dancefloor at the end of the night!

How did the two of you meet?

Through mutual friends- one of who was Holly’s bridesmaid!

How long did you spend planning your wedding?

2 years, 2 months

Best bit of budget advice?

Think before you purchase, be set on a theme / idea and stick to it, if not you can go buying crazy for things you don’t even use! Be creative and enlist help of friends and family to help you keep costs down and make as much as you can! We decorated all of our jars, shopped around on eBay and then had some generous friends make and decorate signs for us. I spent hours on Pinterest surfing for unique theme ideas; this helped a lot with cost.

Wedding invitations and on the day stationery:

Were made and designed by 3 great friends, the stationery was all unique to my wedding. Thank you to Lucy Quatch, Sallie Croake and Natalie Emmanuel for all of your hard work. These 3 ladies helped me with the vision for my day, made some beautiful stationery, decorations and quotes to display around the venue.

Did you fall in love with your wedding dress?

Yes, although at first I refused to try it on as I said it “wasn’t my style” I soon fell in love when I saw myself in it, it was totally in keeping with the look I was going for and had the “wow” factor a bride should feel!

Wedding dress designer and bridal boutique:

Justin Alexander – Dona Nicole at the NEC Wedding Show

Glitz and sparkle: the bride’s accessories:

I wore my mum’s vintage diamond and sapphire drop earrings, a diamond necklace bought by Adam as a wedding gift which matched my engagement ring, and then 2 small hair-slides from Debenhams either side of my floor length veil. My shoes were an absolute steal from Zara!

The groom wore:

A bespoke tailor made three piece suit by Timothy James Henderson, shirt and tie from Marks & Spencer’s, shoes by Canali

Beautiful bridesmaids: what did your best girls wear?

Floor length navy split gold embellished dresses from Virgo’s Lounge.

Hair and make-up – did you DIY or hire a professional?

Hair by Stacey Dexter Hairdressing (myself and bridesmaids)

Make-up by MAC- Lyndsey Chesworth

Wedding flowers:

By Heidi Brown and Susan – both experienced florists who now work from home.

Highlights: They went to the wholesale on the morning of the wedding to collect my peonies so they would be closed, and arranged the bouquet in the morning which you wouldn’t get from any shop. Everyone commented on how stunning the flowers were, all of them were white.

Flowers Chosen:

Bridal Bouquet: white peonies, gypsophila, and brunia, this had been hand tied with lace I chose, and then pinned with small white buttons.

Bridesmaids’ bouquets of gypsophila and lisianthus

Buttonholes: gypsophila. (Groom and best man also featured single white flower and button)

Centrepieces: Mass arrangements of gypsophila with floral rings of white flowers at the bottom of gypsophila and incorporating either hydrangea or peonies. Top table were jars filled with various white flowers including hydrangea, peony, brunia, gypsophila and lisianthus.

What do you remember most about the wedding ceremony?

The large A & H letters we had lighting up the room as I walked in, seeing my husband for the time and then hearing him stutter through his vows! It was the most perfect service, accompanied by wonderful music from Ashmore Acoustics.

Wedding readings?

We had 2 beautiful readings, one by my sister Hannah called ‘maybe’ and then another by close friend Laura who wrote her own titled ‘art is something unique’ both had the room in tears and made our ceremony as special as it was.

General styling – did your venue need much decoration?

Our venue is a 16th century 2 AA rosette pub, beautiful restored by the Dugdale family, the 4* hotel was built 3 years ago and offers boutique luxury rooms. The venue itself is absolutely beautiful set in wonderful grounds, with its own lake overlooking the Peak District. We incorporated the charm of the venue with our theme of vintage glamour. Simple decoration was used, with lanterns, decorated lace jam-jars, hessian, rose petals and white flowers. We also made our own photo-booth, sweet stand, and provided glow sticks and sparklers for the evening. Our key feature was the hire of the vintage H & A light up letters, which provided some very memorable photo’s and transformed the rooms! I hired for very reasonable costs the letters, vintage suitcases and telephone from Pennylane Vintage Hire.

The wedding cake: traditional or quirky?

The cake was designed around the theme of my invitations and save the dates, we chose a 4 tier cake with taupe icing, lace design trimming, navy ribbon with hessian tie and a vintage brooch. We also provided a cake menu, so the guests could sample each tier at their own delight!

Entertainment:

This was very important to us, as we love live music and also a good party! The soundtrack to our day was provided by Ashmore Acoustics, who were there from the ceremony until the very end. We also provided activity packs for the kids and a giant jenga to keep them entertained, for the adults there was our homemade photo-booth, or the late night sparklers and glow sticks when the band and then DJ were in full swing.

On the day tips and advice:

Have a handbag or something similar around, as I wore lipstick it seemed to get lost and I have people hunting for it on several occasions! Enjoy every minute, it goes so quickly, and spend as much time with your man as possible!

What’s the best thing about being married?

Sharing an amazing day with your friends and family, and then the excitement of “what’s next” Plus having a new diamond is always a bonus 🙂
