Elegant and opulent 1930’s Wedding Inspiration with pretty yellow and green detailing

Today I am excited to share this gorgeous styled shoot that showcases some elegant and opulent 1930’s Wedding Inspiration with pretty yellow and green detailing.

For the shoot the creative team created a concept  encapsulating the film star inspiring qualities of the 1930s rather than Great Gatsby styling of 1920s, which is more long strings of pearls, feathers, plenty of black and dropped waists with fringing.

Think more Poirot rather than Chicago.

Images were captured by Boho Chic Weddings with the collaboration of a fabulous creative team.

Catherine says of the shoot…


Alexanders is a Grade II listed building in Skipton, Yorkshire encompassing a restaurant and bar where you can linger over cocktails and enjoy fine dining.

It’s had an eclectic history and retains Edwardian features like the fabulous tiled floor as you walk into the parlour.

The decor embraces Art Deco opulent touches with its lighting, its rich woods, warm colours of green, gold and black and lush palm wall decor.

The stylish entrance is reminiscent of an Edwardian parlour with palms and a superb tiled floor, leading to a superb pewter bar.

Famous for its signature cocktails, you can feel tres chic sipping your fizz before you enter the Parisian style restaurant for your relaxed, fine dining experience.


For attire the Bride wore two lace wedding gowns, ‘Carla’ and ‘Scottie’, one in soft white by Made With Love Bridal, the other in a flattering blush, followed by an emerald green satin gown by Ghost for the evening.

Instead of a veil bridal stylist Katie from The Aisle in Ilkley, added soft veil wings to the dress so the styling of Fern’s beautiful hair was on show.

The ultra glamorous gold lame shoes were from Loeffler Randall.

There were two vintage hair styles for the bride, both combined with the characteristic dark burgundy lip of that decade created by the hair & make-up experts from The Briar Rose Co.

Vintage ruby earrings completed the look with the stunning hair accessories by Lisa of The Bobby Pin based in Yorkshire.

To complement the Brides gorgeous look the Groom wore a 3-piece dark grey tweed suit with a classic white shirt, and golden yellow tie with a clean cut, sleek hairstyle.

This gave the couple just the right look to set the tone for this 1930’s Wedding Inspiration shoot.


Combining a love of 1930s fashion with contemporary tastes for brides and grooms, we kept the colour scheme warm and rich with golden yellows, and saturated greens to continue the feeling of luxury throughout.

Sequins are always so ‘extra’ so we had to include them with a couple of sequinned runners along the tablescape, alongside ferns in the florals to match the existing decor, and the addition of a neon sign from Love Lights The Way taking the look to an evening ‘night out’ /wedding reception vibe.

Gillian from Where Bees Meet in West Yorkshire did a lot of historical research on florals of the time creating two full bouquets with golden yellow, peach and a white roses for contrast adding long flowing ribbons, one of silk organza, the other a hand dyed dark orange.

The stationery by Suzanne of Suzanne Oddy Design consisted of bespoke welcome signs as well as a  beautiful invitation suite and place names in the classic font and geometric styling associated with the 1930s era.

Finally Jo of White Rose Cake Design baked a gorgeous four tier cake with a refined, smooth finish, hand drawn geometric design and hand crafted sugar flowers as well as wedding macarons.


Thank you so much to Catherine and her collaborative team for sharing this exquisite 1930’s Wedding Inspiration styled shoot.

In these cold wintery days its lovely to be inspired by a palette that exudes warmth and opulence.

The pretty colours teamed with art deco influence just epitomises classic glamour.

The gowns, stationery, beauty look, florals and styling are stunning, and the cake exudes an understated elegance and all brought together you get a beautiful shoot in a fabulous location.
