““We honed in on some 1920s style features that we wanted to carry through the design aspect such as the cake, the stationery etc, but we didn’t want it to become a “Great Gatsby” theme or too obviously Art Deco, so we settled on a scallop shape.””

I created the stationery for this 1920s inspired wedding shoot held at Deer Park, Devon. I followed the organiser’s brief of a subtle nod to the 1920s without being too obvious. My final designs featured a watercolour scallop pattern in dusty pinks, corals and peachy tones with romantic modern calligraphy fonts and hand finished touches such as a hand covered button and twine. I echoed the design in a welcome sign.

“The beautiful venue of Deer Park Country Hotel is the location of today’s modern vintage wedding shoot, with beautiful period features, pink touches galore and British bridalwear –  it’s the perfect mix! Claire of  Claire Bemister Photography and Marie of Marie Chandler Bridal coordinated the shoot to create a vision of how modern and vintage can be mixed to make something chic and alternative for your big day. There’s lots of inspo for you to take from this one. Here we catch up with them and the rest of the team to find out about this modern vintage wedding at Deer Park Country Hotel in Devon.”
