Rigwood Manor...the story

So yesterday was a lovely day for Lillian's House. After a lot pacing in front of the laptop the 'Rigwood Manor' shoot, which Lillian's House was involved in, appeared on the wonderful 'Love My Dress' vintage wedding blog for all to see.

If you havn't seen any of my posts about this shoot i'll give you a bit of 'back' story so you know what im talking about! A certain two ladies are the driving force behind this wedding shoot; Becky Mitchell and Vicky Trainor. These two, Becky, a photographer and Vicky, a wedding staitioner and designer, brought a wonderful group of talented people together to collaborate and share their own individual talents to showcase what the North East can offer the wedding market. The 'Rigwood Manor' shoot was born. With a beautiful vintage 50's theme developed by Becky and Vicky the shoot was full of wonderful colour, twinkling silverware and flouncy florals that were styled seamlessly.

Lillian's House was invited to contribute, and some t's to be worn with lovely dove grey tutu's from Bo&Bo, were born. Part of a major inspiration for Lillian's House are the 50's and vintage textiles from this era, so the excuse to be involved in a proect with this theme was just mouth watering. Lillian's House also supplied the sashes worn by the little bridesmaids, which i hope you agree, compliment the t's and tutu's seamlessly (the moodboards for this project can be seen in a previous post). I'll post some detailed pictures of the t's and sahes very soon but in the meantime here are a few of the imges from the 'Rigwood Manor' shoot...i hope you enjoy... pleasego to 'Love My Dress' for more pictures.

Here are a list of the other very talented guys and dolls who contibuted to bits and pieces in the pictures above...i will be posting a full list of details of all of the team who were involved in the 'Rigwood Manor' shoot and the 'Amaryllis and Lace' shoot very very soon.

  1. Nice blog!
    The petticoats are actually made by Poppy, a little North-East children's clothing company (as were the women's bridesmaid dresses in the shoot). That colour of petticoat is sold out at Bo & Bo, but available (along with lots of other colours) via poppy
