Glamorous Vintage Atonement Inspired Wedding Ideas

Atonement is absolutely one of my favourite films and I think this wedding inspiration shoot absolutely captures the elegance of the setting and outfits perfectly. Co-ordinated by the brilliant Emma Joy The Wedding Planner, the shoot draws together a really talented bunch of suppliers who have created a vintage feast for the eyes.

David Jenkins has produced some really marvellous images of the shoot, thank you ever so much for sharing these with us today David.

With three beautiful bridal looks, stunning foxglove florals and some really exquisite stationery, all set in the most elegant country location, Eggington House, get ready to be inspired. I’ve particularly fallen for the table set up, how special is it that it is set with original 1930s glassware? I also love that the cake is inspired by the stunning bridal gowns. Enjoy WWWers!

My inspiration for this glamorous editorial shoot was the film ‘Atonement’. I love everything about the costumes and locations, and I wanted to design a shoot that evoked 1930s glamour just as beautifully.

My photographer, David Jenkins, shot a mixture of film and digital, and I simply adore the sultry images he has created.

I chose Eggington House, a quintessentially English manor in the Bedfordshire countryside, to be our backdrop. Its wood-panelled interiors and stunning formal grounds were just right for my theme. We featured the owners’ restored Austin Healey and the shots David took of Jenny in the front seat are among my favourites. She’s a true 21st century bride driving herself to her wedding!

Elegant pieces from Eliza Jane Howell’s ‘Leading Lady’ collection worked perfectly with hair accessories from Gillian Million, bridal shoes from Emmy London and art deco jewellery from The Antique Jewellery Company. I love how David has captured movement in the dresses and, as always, Sanni Sorma’s hair and makeup was perfect.

Leigh Chappell used mauve lilac, foxgloves and roses to create natural, vintage-style flower arrangements that were tied with silk ribbon from Nettle Textiles. Karenanna made a stunning cake, inspired by the bead patterns on the gowns.
