Northern Monk Refectory Chapter Hall | Vintage Styled Shoot

I’ve visited the Northern Monk Refectory Chapter Hall a few times while shooting editorial work, I thought it would be perfect for a styled shoot. It’s always good to work with people who I normally only get to meet briefly on a wedding day (if at all). So decided to get in touch with Emma, Hayley, Louise & Carys (all the linkage for the lovely ladies is below) and see if they wanted to get onboard with a shoot in the beautiful space. 
 
The NMBC chapter hall is a large space on the top floor of the old Flax Mill, with the brewery on the ground floor and Refectory (Taproom/Restaurant) on the middle floor. The space makes the most of the location with exposed walls, gorgeous large windows and plenty of character. Being used for everything from Weddings, to gallery space and open mic nights, there’s plenty of flexibility to style the way you want. During the day we wanted to make the best use of the natural light and feel, when the dark set in we changed the mood to a more cosy candle lit romantic setup. 
 
We picked a range of different dresses from Glory Days from Hayley’s Original Vintage pieces to her stunners from the first collection, Rolling in the Roses. Changing up the looks with different floral arrangements as well as hair and make up to suit each style. 
 
As we progressed into the evening we set up a single table styled ready for a wedding breakfast or even just a small romantic meal. Using plenty of candles, flowers and foliage, this tied nicely with the Grub & Grog food. Grub & Grog focus on local fresh produce to make food that changes with the seasons. My favourite was the Ox Tongue Hash, with celeriac mash, kale and hop syrup & stout gravy.  They now moved on from the Refectory and are based at Sheaf Street Cafeteria, and Tall Boys in Leeds, as well as offering event catering. At Northern Monk now they have offer a different menu from the Refectory Kitchens focused on seasonal, local small plate dishes.

Talton Lodge, Fun Festival Wedding | Hannah & Dave | Stratford Upon Avon

I love shooting at venues like Talton Lodge. Having already shot a wedding there I knew what to expect, yet with the flexibility they offer it’s perfect for couples to really dig in and make the available spaces their own. Hannah and Dave certainly did that. Making use of the house for the wedding ceremony, they planned an outdoor service with a great combination of mismatched chairs and a couple of hay bails for good measure. With some good planning Hannah had a prime location overlooking the guests arriving, and was able to grab the odd sneaky peak from the window of Dave waiting. The special guest for the ceremony was Marley, Hannah and Dave’s Bulldog, who was, sort of, well behaved and only tried to get involved in the ceremony a few times. Hannah worked with Soon Bride to design a dress that had personal touches, including daisy embroidery which matched the daisies in her hair.

After the ceremony everyone enjoyed drinks in the sun, before heading over the road to the walled garden for the wedding reception. Hannah & Dave created a nice chilled festival feel with everyone receiving a wristband, and custom tie-die t-shirt. A nod to Dave’s dad who used to sell them at festivals. The evening progressed with some ace speeches, and live music before heading out onto the lawn for a massive bonfire and dancing.
