Beeston Manor Wedding photography – Rock N Roll style
This blog is an inspired look at the 1950’s rock n roll style weddings and I could think of no better place for the photoshoot than Beeston Manor.
As I have discussed in my previous blogs my love of 1950’s style weddings led me to the Rock N Roll era. It’s a real contrast to the elegantly themed photoshoot of the 1950’s. As before mood boards were created on Pinterest, mainly to decide on colours, hair, make up and details. I had already decided that I would need a Tea Length wedding dress along with some vivid reds.
The dress provided by the fantastic Dreamcatchers of Kirkham was ‘The Valentine’ by Caroline Castiglioni; one of my personal favourite designers. This ¾ length gown is stylish with beautiful laced sleeves and bodice, and a free flowing skirt. The look was finished off with a small floral headpiece and pearl jewellery.
The suit to fit our male model, Bogdan, was also supplied by Dreamcatchers. It was from their designer range of Peter Posh suits. The look here was to create an authentic casual look which was finished off with braces which I purchased from Amazon.
Claire of Makeup by Claire and Jade of Evalle Hair created the perfect hair and make up to compliment the look. The hair for Claire, our model was styled with rolls, weaves and an edgy quiff, beautifully accompanied with natural make up and striking red lipstick; perfect.
The styling as before was courtesy of Janette of Promenade Red Creative Weddings, though I had a helping hand supplying a vintage camera, coke bottles and a classic red Ford pickup truck to hold the rings. Janette made use of these along with her rather large supply of period props; vintage vinyl records, suit cases and champagne glasses to name a few. Also brought along for this shoot was the classic 50’s Dutch bike, named ‘Bertie’.
To compliment the styling Janette brought in a striking cake from Iced of Garstang and stationary from Claire Louise.
To finish off the look the flowers were supplied and tied by Janette, of which she purchased from a local florist.
I hope these series of blogs have been interesting and maybe a little inspiring for you. If you are getting married or indeed know someone who is why not drop me an email or call me to discuss your wedding.
