Fred and Ginger, an opulent and luxurious wedding – The Marriage of Jess and Martin at Rockliffe Hall

It’s just as though someone has put a beautiful movie on from the 1930′s – full of Hollywood glamour and oozing style.

Jess and Martins’ wedding was just like something from the films of a bygone age. They reminded me of Fred and Ginger…Martin in his dapper suit, Jess in her stunning Jenny Packham gown. SO stylish, chic and elegant. The venue was Rockliffe Hall, an absolutely wonderful venue in the north east. It was a fitting backdrop to this most glamorous of weddings.

I’m not going to write lots and lots of detail about this day, infact I’m going to just let you sit back and wallow in the loveliness of it all.

For me, this also marks the start of a new approach to blogging weddings. No more chronological order. We want you to lose yourself in the wedding, savour the imagery and lose track of time. It’s simply just going to be collections put together to showcase the day.

This wedding was achingly beautiful. Jess and Martin are wonderful, creative, funny and endearing.
From the vintage MG complete with red leather seats, to the stunning purple hue of the reception room, from the softest summer sunset, to the gorgeous shiny lift, this wedding had it all.

Every detail still makes my heart sing.

Isn’t it all just wonderful? Congratulations to the lovely Mr and Mrs Chalk. What a spectacular day.
We send our love and best wishes to you both for a happily ever after.


My love and thanks to Ali Lovegrove for so ably assisting me at this wedding. It was a pleasure to work with you x
