Old English-Inspired Wedding Styled Shoot at The Halifax Club

This Old English-inspired wedding styled shoot at The Halifax Club combined classic stationery and décor details with dried floral accents and trendy bridal accessories for a vintage-meets-modern feel. The historic venue in downtown Halifax was the perfect backdrop!

I photographed a styled shoot at The Halifax Club in 2022 and had so much fun! The venue was picturesque, and the vendor team was so talented. So, when the venue’s general manager and wedding coordinator, Meaghan MacDonald, asked if I wanted to collaborate on another shoot, I said yes immediately. We planned every detail of this shoot’s design together which was so fun!

If you love to blend vintage details with modern style, this styled shoot at The Halifax Club will provide all the wedding inspiration you need – from the elegant invitation suite to the colourful flowers and Lambeth cake, our talented team of Halifax vendors went above and beyond to help us bring our vision to life.

Meaghan and I knew we wanted to incorporate an elegant floral pattern into the linen on the tablescape. We looked far and wide for a tablecloth that fit our vision but couldn’t find the right thing. Ultimately, we transformed a neutral floral duvet cover from IKEA into our dream tablecloth. It was the perfect backdrop for the colourful floral centrepieces and taper candles, which we accented with scattered fresh fruit and vintage glassware provided by MacFarlands Events.

Ece from High and Dry Flowers did an incredible job with the floral design! She blended fresh flowers with dried elements to complement the vintage meets modern aesthetic of our Old English-inspired wedding vision. The bride carried a bouquet of dried flowers in a blushing neutral palette with pops of green.

Meanwhile, the table centrepieces brought colour into the design, with fresh orange and pink flowers interspersed with dried flowers and grasses. The “broken arch” backdrop for the ceremony also blended dried and fresh florals to stunning effect.

We just about died when we saw the stationery suite created by Lupin Design Studio! With delicate illustrations of flowers and birds and luxurious finishing touches, including vellum, pearls, and a floral-embossed gold wax seal, it was nothing short of perfection. The blue and white chinoiserie-inspired design also coordinated seamlessly with the décor on the tablescapes.
