A stunning Yorkshire venue, a bride with a true vision and suppliers that made that vision a reality. Lisa and Matt’s modern, vintage 1920s wedding is full to the brim of personal touches, sentimental details, a beautiful bespoke wedding dress and some amazing photography by Natalie Hamilton. With a theme that runs throughout the wedding day, a bride that knew exactly what she wanted, and a dreamy Christmas proposal, this love story and wedding journey is swoonworthy! We catch up with Lisa who tells us all about her and Matt’s Saltmarshe Hall wedding…
How Did You Meet?
“It was a very 21st Century meeting online, on an internet dating website.”
“The week before Christmas, Matthew blindfolded me, took my hand and led me down to the bottom of our garden. He slowly took the blindfold off to reveal ‘marry me’ written in fairy lights on the fence. When I turned around, he was on one knee on the ground. It really was so perfect and so thoughtful. Afterwards, we enjoyed a dip in our hot tub (which was bought that week) and Matthew brought out pink champagne in flutes to celebrate.”
“We both decided we wanted an outdoor wedding including the ceremony. Ideally somewhere local and that we had both never been to before so we could create our own memory together. We were delightfully surprised to find Saltmarshe Hall, a beautiful trade II listed country house with acres of stunning grounds, less than 20 minutes drive away from us and we both never heard of it before. We looked around and agreed it was just perfect for us and our vision. Luckily for us, the sun shone brightly on our wedding day. The one thing money can’t buy.”
Planning the Wedding
“Our vision for the wedding both venue and styling were 1920’s vintage, timeless elegance. We wanted something classy and smart, something we can look back on year after year and think how amazing the day was. We chose the peacock for what it symbolised and used that in the decorations/cake/bouquet/jewellery etc We added touches of silver and glass wear for that reflective element.”
“We wanted something non-traditional like the rest of the wedding when it came to the details and especially the cake. The lower cake matched my Louboutin shoes. The second layer Matthews suit, and then merged from blue to silver capturing the 1920s with its diamonds /pearl detailing finished with stunning peacock feathers on the top.”
“The flowers were by All Occasions florists in Howden. They went above and beyond to capture my vision and the mood I wanted. I really didn’t want traditional. Instead elegant 1920 with a modern twist a few simple white flowers to compliment my dress and then lots of foliage and peacock feathers and leaf shape crystals. I also had a charm attached to my bouquet with a photo of me and my mum on, which meant a lot to me.”

“The dress was meant to be. I had to cancel all my appointments and only went to one which was with Stephanie Moran Couture. I gave Stephane a rough guide 1920s long sleeve boat neck fishtail, the design, an amazing one of a kind dress, grew from there. Stephanie took my vision and ran with it, nothing was too much trouble. Her craftsmanship was impeccable, and it fit like a glove. It was everything I could have dreamt of and more. My wedding ring was made up of leaf shape diamonds so Stephanie also put Swarovski Crystal leaves on my dress and leaves in my veil, this became another running theme through the wedding.”
“Matts suit was purchased from suits direct to carry on with our peacock theme he chose a stunning deep blue Suit. All the men dressed in black tuxedos. Just like the bride, we wanted Matt to stand out and feel special… I cried when he tried it on!”
“Matts 3-year-old daughter and my stepdaughter, Macy, was flower girl and ring bearer. She was simply stunning, a real angel also dressed in white and wore simple white flowers and peacock feathers in her hair. My best friend Mel was maid of honour wearing a simple grey chiffon dress and peacock hair slide.”
The Best Part of the Day
“Seeing Matts face when we had a surprise 3rd dance, I had secretly recorded his favourite song and it was played to everyone without telling them or him who was singing (made for a very special wedding gift from Me to Matt) Matt feels that was the best part of his day too.”
Words of Wisdom
“Don’t be afraid to be a ‘bridezilla’ If there’s something /someone you aren’t happy with, say so, as you never get the time back. Do your research finding suppliers that match the vision of your day, suppliers that are passionate about their trade. If they are excited as much as you are.. you’re onto a winner! Try not to stress and enjoy your unique magical day.”
