Art Deco Era Elegance Inspired by the Titanic

These beautiful vintage inspired images were sent in by wedding photographer Jonathan Ryder, who worked with a team of creatives local to the Belfast area to produce this editorial.

The images were inspired by their setting, the gorgeous Titanic Hotel Belfast, and the Art Deco scene of the late 1920’s and 1930’s.  The building that houses the Titanic Hotel Belfast is in fact a former set of Drawing Offices for Harland & Wolff, the company famous for having built the majority of ships intended for the White Star Line – including, of course, The Titanic.

“It was lovely to have a direct link to the era through the architecture and decor of the rooms in which we shot. We set make-up, hair, gowns and floral styling to reflect this overall inspiration”

” We used parts of the hotel that still have a good stylistic connection to that period of time as well, in the wake of the building’s recent refurbishment. We also added complementary, contemporary styling of our own for wedding ceremony and reception areas.”

The era inspired gowns modelled in these images were supplied by Ivory & Pearl bridal boutique, located in the heart of Comber in Co. Down. Owner Kate Speers says “we work one on one with each bride providing you with an individual, personalised and intimate experience that will be remembered forever.”

“Our elegant bridal boutique will allow you to relax and enjoy the whole experience of choosing your wedding dress. Get in touch and we will help you find a stunning wedding dress to tie the knot in style.”
