A Vintage Great British Seaside Shoot

This beautiful and creative photo shoot was put together by the ladies behind Dottie Creations and Dottie Photography. It was inspired by their love of the great British seaside.

Mandy & Zoe, the ladies behind both companies, styled, crafted and photographed the whole shoot themselves. They made all the awesome signage, the beautiful table decorations and the even the biscuits.

These are sure to get you in the mood for Summer huh?

Lots of love to Mandy & Zoe and the whole team involved with this beautiful shoot for sharing it with us today.

    Of all the photo sets you have featured so far this is my absolute favourite.

  2. This is stunning…. totally inspiring and gorgeous in every sense of the word. I love the styling, the stationary, the creative shots…. brilliant! :D

  3. This shoot has totally made my morning! The perfect colours for a seaside shoot, and I love the non cheesy slogans used (pig out, love it!). I have to say gorgeous models but Ken the Pug has stolen my heart… Brilliant work ladies x

  4. that confirms it, I’m having my wedding photos on the beach and I don’t care what anyone says…

    If I’m lucky there will also be a pug.

    I need that pearl/swallow necklace! Any idea where it is from?


  6. Leanne

    Oh my word! I am SOOO stealing this “wedding!”

    I love the colours, and the stationary! Ive been looking for inspiration for my vintage wedding and today I found it! Thankyou!

    P.S. where are those gorgeous red shoes from???

  7. Just wondering – is this Old Hunstanton beach? Gorgeous pictures, and I notice they are from Cambridgeshire, my old stomping ground! Awesome gorgeousness x

  8. Mandy and team these pictures are awwesome! I can totally see me doing a wedding up here in Scotland just like it – are you free?!?!
    Great to see some vintage pics of Carrington House too!

  9. oh wow just wow! we have a red and blue theme for our vintage americana bbq but now I need yellow in it! oh how I need yellow…
    Leanne the shoes are from River Island. I have a pair for one of my BM’s and am so thrilled to see how cute they photograph! (a steal at €50 too!)
    Any ideas on where the stationary came from… it’s to die for! with 3 months out I really need to get cracking on the bitty bits! :)

    Hazel, the stationery was made by the girls behind the shoot, Dottie Creations. so fab!

  11. Thanks Kat! I sent a mail to Dottie Creations just there… their stuff on the site is to die for! amazing!!

  12. I made the necklace shown on the girl model. It incorporates the lovely 50’s enamel and marcasite, blue swallow brooch . It got snapped up straight away but unbelievably I have sourced an identical brooch so can recreate this for one lucky vintage bride! It is shown on my website: amandacarolinebridal.com x x

  13. OMG! I LOVE everything about this wedding! The STUNNING Hollywood couple, the pug…with a bow tie!! CUUUUte! The beach, the dress, the shoes… what an absolute babe this bride is. Gorgeous, gorgeous couple… family! I wish you all the best. Love x
