“I organised the shoot to show potential brides how you can mix old and new garments (which aren’t necessarily bridal) and accessories to create a completely unique look for a sophisticated glamorous wedding or other special occasion. The Daffodil is an amazing venue that was originally a cinema in the 1920s and still retains many Art Deco features and original memorabilia from that era.”

“I have a collection of original 1920s and ‘30s dresses that I’ve been collecting since I was a teenager, some of which are now for sale or hire in my shop. Due to the nature of the venue I decided to make the theme “Hollywood Glamour” but I was also influenced by the 1970s take on that era, in particular the incredible original Biba shop”

 “I also wanted to bring it up to date and more contemporary so included some of my own dresses but still with a 1920s and 1930s slant as I love mixing old and new for my label “something old…something new”. By doing this you can create a completely individual look and it’s also more ethical. You may have something vintage that belonged to a dear relative so this is also a lovely way of including them in your special day.”

 “We did the whole shoot at “The Daffodil” which gave us an amazing backdrop with photogenic corners, features and interesting lighting possibilities. As they offer wedding packages I wanted to show the possibilities of holding a slick, glamorous weddingevening reception or pre wedding dinner there but it would also be an amazing venue for a hen party.”

 “As it’s already such an amazing venue I didn’t think it needed a lot of unnecessary styling but Cotswold Vintage Hire brought in a few props including glamorous candelabras and original vintage glasses. I also asked Petal and Bird to make some paper flowers in peach, cream, burgundy and gold to fit in with our sophisticated, elegant colour palette. Cotswold Letter Press who combine time-honoured 15th century letterpress printing techniques with the best of 21st century design and technology also created some beautiful bespoke wedding invitations and personal stationery to suit the “Hollywood” theme.”

I specialise in Embroidery so used an early 1920s geisha style dress with embroidery inspired by Chinese hand painted wallpaper. I also included  bias cut silk satin dress with a cobweb detail on the back in silver grey which is flattering for most body shapes as well as original vintage dresses in peach, black, chocolate brown and a vivid royal blue as colour is on trend at the moment.”

 “As I wanted to include as many local suppliers as I could and there is a lovely florists in The Suffolks called “Bloomers” I asked them to provide a bouquet. We went for something fairly traditional and chose mostly cream and peach roses and they created a perfectly formed small posy.”

 Vanilla Pod Bakery:- “The cake we created was an elegant four tier cake. Shimmering fondant, handmade sugar flowers and piped details echoing touches from one of Jan’s gorgeous wedding dresses.  I really recommend using elements from your stationary or your dress to add highly personalised touches to your wedding cake. A beautiful way to incorporate all aspects of your wedding.”

 “The hair was styled at Paco Delgado’s hair salon in The Suffolks. We chose to style them with big 70s hair rather than traditional 1920s and 30s styles to give them a more contemporary look which shows how easily you can combine looks from different eras to suit your own taste.”

“Gemma Young from Christian Dior make up department created smouldering eyes and dark lips echoing the make up of the Hollywood sirens that were our chief inspiration. This look is flattering for most skin tones and gives a sophisticated appearance for both day and evening.”

Milliner Gemma Sangwine also created a range of hair accessories and hats to compliment the shoot:-  “The 1930’s is my favourite era, epitomised by the glamour of Hollywood starlets in bias cut silk evening gowns. Drawing on inspiration from the weird and wonderful styles of hats in the 30’s, notably Elsa Schiaparelli’s iconic upside-down shoe hat, I played around with shapes and positioning to create a collection that was eye catching but wearable for the modern leading lady.”

“We also used some pieces from State of Grace; a catsuit, beaded capes and exotic coats to add an extra touch of luxury. I teamed the one coat with a Poiret inspired turban which brought to mind the exotic soirées and fancy dress parties he held in the 1920’s. I also used textile jewellery to give an extra  accent of colour and glamour and made a few custom made brooches and corsages to complement the vintage dresses.”
