Marry In Norfolk: Behind the scenes at the bridal fashion shoot

17 May 2019

The team of Norfolk suppliers sprinkled vintage magic over a unique venue

Have you seen the latest edition of Marry in Norfolk Magazine? An expert team of wedding suppliers came together to create a colourful fashion shoot for the spring/summer 2019 issue.


Shot on location at Mid-Norfolk Railway, the backdrop provided plenty of possibilities. Inspired by the setting, editor Amanda Griffiths and photographer Eloise Pitcher decided on the theme of vintage magic and asked the team to interpret this however they felt best suited their style.

The Frock Spot provided a beautiful range of bridal dresses with tea-length designs including Margot by Lois Wild and Lexie by LouLou Bridal and full-length gowns including Savannah and Arliss by Watters Wtoo. Yocelyn by Watters Wtoo, a tiered Moscato pink and ivory ballgown, proved a favourite for all the team too.





Bright and Beautiful Flowers provided a floral crown in deep berry tones and a pretty flower hoop to tie in with the latest trends. The show-stopping bridal bouquets featured a selection of blooms including thistles, protea, roses and loose greenery.

Emily Charlotte Make Up and Cherrie Imogen Hair & Makeup Artistry created two looks for models Lydia Coope and Maddy Eglington. 

“Braids are a popular request for 2019 brides,” says Cherrie, who created two different braided looks. Maddy’s long locks were styled into a mermaid braid with a gold and diamante vine to complete the look. For Lydia, Cherrie opted for a textured up-do with a loose fishtail side plait to add something extra to a more classic style.





When it came to the make-up, it was all about the eyes. Emily primarily used a combination of Charlotte Tilbury and MAC products to provide a perfect base. For Maddy, she used liner, false lashes and mascara to great a dramatic smoky look paired with a romantic rose plum lip colour. Lydia’s look included shimmery berry tones for both the eyes and lips, a perfect pairing with the floral displays. 



The venue provided a great selection of vintage props, letting the team run wild dressing the platform with suitcases and experimenting with a steam machine. George Saville set the scene as the shoot’s engine driver, and the venue laid out a delicious afternoon tea too.
