Mary-Ann Griffin and her team of fabulously talented wedding vendors share their vintage styled photo shoot - get inspired!

A bit about Mary-Ann and her team:

'I hand make wedding accessories in the Amber Valley Derbyshire, and I love my job! What nicer way to spend my time than sewing accessories for brides to wear on their wedding day? I am like a magpie collecting vintage treasure such as antique lace or an art deco tiara. With a little TLC they are ready to feature in the chapter of a new love story.'

'When planning the photo shoot I chose Callow Hall Country Hotel as the setting because it has both a beautiful interior as well as the Secret Garden and surrounding views outside, which are stunning. If I were to get married again (I have no plans to!) I would pick this venue to do it! The  hotel staff were so helpful and accommodating of our needs on the day, and they provided a delicious lunch!'

'Lizzie Malcolm of Elizabeth Malcolm Bridalwear kindly lent me some of her exquisite wedding dresses for the day; Lipstick and Curls did a fabulous job of styling the two models hair and make-up. Steve Horsley did a fantastic job with  his cameras capturing some absolutely beautiful images.'
