Get the Vintage look on the Wedding Ideas Shop

The Black Swan in Helmsley, North Yorkshire is steeped in history. Next door to a pretty churchyard, its country charm and quaint village location made it the perfect venue for a vintage-style wedding.


The Black Swan hotel teamed up with top wedding professionals, and a creative team led by Annemarie King, an award-winning photographer from York.

The photoshoot was done in a 1930’s style, with a sensuous beaded gown by Jenny Packham, supplied by Andrea Bambridge, taking centre stage.

The bouquet was the creation of Busy Liz’s floral design. It featured ‘antique-style faded’ flowers and was embellished with elegant feathers.

The striking make-up and elegant hairstyle was by award-winning hair and make-up artist Kate Pymm.

  1. There are some great shots in here, well done, But i’m not feeling the love in the photographs, it’s more like a fashion shoot than a wedding….but then this it is staged….so it’s no surprise I guess 🙂
