Following on from the last blog post – welcome to the next chapter! This blog centres on the 1940’s theme that we styled and photographed.
Inspiration for the shoot came from my personal interest in the 40’s and 50’s along with researching vintage wedding styles from magazines, blogs and Pinterest. As before, Pinterest was used alongside many visits to Dreamcatcher’s website to find the ideal style of dress, then a visit to the store along with our model to decide on the perfect dress and accessories. We decided on a Caroline Castigliano gown – ‘Bellismma’ with lace jacket also from Caroline Castigliano and a belt from Richard Designs along with the headdress from Emmerling. It was perfect! The nipped in waist and full skirt are very indicative of the time and the lace bodice finished it off perfectly. The hair and makeup by Alicia Krupta and Clare Osbourne was also perfect to compliment the look. A very authentic vintage bride!
A beautiful bouquet was created to match using subtle pinks and creams by Kate of Fabulous flowers by Kate.
With all of the styling done it was out in the grounds to our chosen backgrounds around Marine Hall. To keep the style fresh I had decided on three different background colours. From plain whites, palm trees and to the striking red brick wall.
A selection of images are below and please remember to check back next week when we will be going further back in style to the roaring 20’s!
