Downtown Abbey Shoot at Holdenby House

Updated: Jan 19, 2021

Showcasing Eliza Jane Howell - Roaring Twenties Bridal Gowns

I was thrilled to have been asked to style the hair for a fashion feature and the front cover of the 2020 Spring/Summer #Wedding Guide commissioned by #Silverlinings.

Travelling back in time to the #1920’s, a #DowntonAbbey inspired theme was created at the stunning historic grounds of #HoldenbyHouse, in #Northamptonshire.

Model Lily Mawby, had amazing hair to work with and I was able to create and style a beautiful #bridalhairstyle by using the classic #Hollywoodwave curling technique.

Now to be honest, no words are needed to describe these #elizajanehowell weding dresses as one their own they say it all... they are just astounding..! The level of intricate detail is jaw dropping. They ooze romance, glamour, sophistication and kind of have that slight mysteriousness about them. A true WOW factor!

Scroll down to view just a small collection of these dresses modelled by Lily Mawby, captured by Sarah Vivienne Photography.

One of my favourite images!!
