Winchester-based photographer Angela Ward Brown sent these over the other day and I’m pretty sure you vintage lovers are going to adore them. The shoot took place at semi-derelict country estate near Winchester called Northington Grange, which is open to the public but it hardly ever used, except as for the odd movie and soap opera set!
The model, Velvet (yes, her real name!) looks stunning in these genuine vintage gowns. The first, a handmade, full-length, silk gown with short train dated from the1930 is particularly stunning no? The dresses were all found at Hampshire Wardrobe in Winchester and Angela styled the shoot herself. She made all the accessories (including the veil) to perfectly match her vision.
Lee & Rose got married in Liverpool in a super duper stylish way. Rose’s outfit is literally off-the-hook! Have you ever seen a bride look so damn funky? Plus (and you’re going to love this) it is all from the British high street! Be sure to check out the full list of where each item was found after the photographic goodness. I am just mad about those tights…
“There was no real theme as such, but the sort of couple we are means that we wanted something relaxed, informal and fun” Lee , the groom, told me “We wanted a simple wedding, we wanted to wear the outfits we wanted, we wanted to pay for everything ourselves, and more importantly, we wanted our friends and family to come and have a good time, not feel like they had to behave in a manner they normally wouldn’t, i.e. no strict seating arrangements, not worrying about which knife to use to cut the bread roll, etc. We’re not show-offs, and we’re not millionaires, and we have our own sense of style, so we couldn’t see the point in all this so-called ‘traditional’ excess that means the marriage starts off with £30,000 worth of debt! It just wouldn’t be us.”
