Fabulous art deco wedding inspo for 2017 with Lemontree Photography (12)

Before today I never realised art deco had such exciting and rebellious origins! If you’re having an art deco inspired wedding – or marrying in a venue with an art deco look, you should read this and embrace the spirit of the times – let your hair down and have twice as much fun! Huge thanks to Tina from Crimble Hall for the fabulous inspiration in today’s guest article!

Fun and glamorous Art Deco themes are in perfect keeping with the history and grandeur of many of England’s older former stately home and manor house venues. The ‘bright young things’ from these wealthy families had their entertaining heydays in the 1920’s, so whether you’re using a lavish former ballroom with crystal chandeliers and luscious shimmering fabrics, or a former cocktail bar with geometric wooden inlays, mirrored surfaces and polished chrome, you’ve got the perfect excuse for fun and decadent Art Deco wedding styling.

Happy Friday everyone! Come to sunny Devon for today’s gorgeous art deco wedding in an insanely amazing venue. Cherry and Myles chose the stunning Burgh Island Hotel for their reception, and it set the scene for an incredibly beautiful, chic and art deco wedding day.

“We tried our very best to find suppliers local to either our home in Cardiff or from our wedding location in Devon, as we are very keen on supporting local businesses.  We looked at wedding magazines, local wedding blogs and pinterest for most of our ideas and then found most of our contacts at local wedding fairs or via the recommendation of family and friends.”

“The venue was so exquisite, no additional styling was necessary.  All we added was a few personal touches and a vase of flowers per table, created by [our florist] Sally.  Burgh Island Hotel is an absolutely exceptional venue, with incredible scenery and exquisite décor… to have tried to add further decoration would have been completely superfluous and would have detracted from its charm.”

A sense of normality returns to English Wedding Blog HQ as I have one of the loveliest weddings of the year to share with you.

Such an amazing wedding blog only gets better with brilliant advice from the bride and groom. “Don’t try to save money, but don’t spend more than you need to.  My advice is set a budget and work to it. If you can’t afford it, then don’t do it/have it.  Focus on the main areas and spend as much as you can afford on the important parts.”

Beautiful bride Jodie told me many of their wedding suppliers were recommended by their venue, St Giles House Hotel: the flowers and entertaiment, for example. She already knew of the bridal boutique where she found her gorgeous dress, and said everything else was scoured via the internet, such as invites, place cards, place card holders etc. On the day stationery was beautifully homemade, and Jodie was glued to Etsy & Pinterest for favour ideas!

Think literature: classic books with art deco elegance. Think vintage: feathers, pearls and faux fur with a strikingly beautiful make up look. Think style: exquisite fonts and striking stationery designs. And think glamour: a deliciously strappy wedding dress, the most amazing setting, and a classic vintage car.

There’s even snow outside… our beautiful model’s accessories and flowers are perfect for a winter wedding and as practical as they are pretty. You will adore this shoot – I know I do, and I’m thrilled to be able to share it with you today.
