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.

I stumbled across this gorgeous Hampshire wedding on the blog of Lemontree Photography – and totally loved everything about it. Sarah and Iain are gorgeous – their day is so perfectly charming I had to get in touch with Az at Lemontree and ask if we could share their images with you today. Lucky for me, he said yes, and Sarah and Iain have been lovely in sharing some of the details of their planning with you too!

We just wanted a relaxed atmosphere where people could be at ease. One of the reasons that we chose Penton Park was because it offered guests the chance to dance, stay at the bar, play snooker, have a go at some garden games or just relax in the sitting room or the swing seat in the grounds.

We researched online and loved Az’s pictures. We were extremely pleased with his work. What attracted us to Az’s pictures was the relaxed feel: there were very few staged shots. He has an amazing ability to capture people just having a good time. Az put us at ease on the day and was lovely to have at our wedding!

“It was important to us as suppliers to use modern elements that had a certain ‘feel’ for the 1920’s era. We wanted to avoid using vintage clothing and hair accessories, which were unlikely to be available for purchase. We literally wanted couples to stumble across the shoot and perhaps piece together what they loved from it, helping them create their own art deco wedding theme.

Dresses from Chanticleer, Charlie Brear and Suzanne Neville provided that unique touch of being modern, yet with a certain ‘feel’ for the 1920s. Brides of Winchester provided the beautiful wedding gowns for the shoot.
