Here is the final instalment in my series of blogs focusing on the styled wedding shoots. This one takes us further back to the 1920’s.
The inspiration for this style was from my love of the style and the venue, Marine Hall. The hall was built in the Art Deco era of the 1920’s and indeed still has many of the features not least the domed roof over the ballroom. With this in mind it was back to the magazines, blogs and Pinterest. It didn’t take long at all to find the dress, infact I knew from searching Pinterest what I wanted and it was one that Dreamcatchers have on display. Jaime by Enzoani was the choice and it fit our model Carla perfectly. This floor length gown is elegant with beautiful beaded sleeves and bodice, with skirt of lace over tulle and charmeuse. The romantic vintage look is finished with delicate beading to the floral lace hem. The look was added to later in the shoot by adding a feather wrap by Sasso. Perfect!
Kate of Fabulous flowers by Kate crafted a gorgeous bouquet of avalanche roses, peach avalanche roses, rice flower and vendella roses to finish off the look.
Kate also provided us with the afternoon tea styling which was gorgeous. We had cakes, china, heather and nigella to complement the style of our shoot.
With everything in place I chose a few backgrounds, from the striking red brick wall, to the columns and palm tree’s but this time adding in the rather misty looking beach to set the look off.
Here is a selection of the photos. Please look out for my next styled shoot which will be in the autumn.
