Clara Bows

We interrupt our regularly scheduled programming to bring you this important news flash…Bristol photographer Rosie Parsons  has just shot one of the most gorgeously vintage style weddings right here in England. Oh yes, England rules the vintage roost today dear friends.

The couple hired a house for the occasion, Treowen in Monmouthshire and the beautiful vintage styling and crockery was supplied by Clara Bows aka Vicky Vale, the Bride! Don’t you just love the quirky 1920’s fashion everyone is sporting?..oh the swoon…

Her Grandmother’s Dress

Will & Kerr are getting married next month in the glorious San Francisco. Originally from New York, the couple will surely have a super stylish day at Presidio Chapel and Marines’ Memorial Club. Kerr is wearing a dress originally worn by her Grandmother on her first date with her Grandfather which really adds to the personal and intimate feel of this session.

Note: If you too met and fell in love in New York then you better get on a enter the New York film contest. The contest is open for entries until Sunday so hurry up!

Local Talent

This is something a little different for me to post but when I saw Rosie Parsons‘ last few ‘detail shoots’ I fell in love! The Bristol – based photographer has a great relationship with some fantastic local vendors, from Clara Bows who rents and sells gorgeous vintage crockery, to local florists Bella & Fifi with whom Rosie spend the day dashing around the city delivering blooms in an adorable eco-chic piaggio. Finally I had to share some photographs from Gilly Woo, a good friend of Rosies’ 30th birthday a few weeks ago. The birthday girl is also a ridiculously talented dress maker and so not only are the images pretty damn stunning but how retro chic gorgeous is the her sparkly gold vintage glam dress?

A Western Vintage Vacation

After posting Jenn & Skip’s engagements back in May, I was convinced I would totally love their vintage vacation themed wedding – and I guess I was right. They went for a western/vintage vacation theme which was helped along by all their friends and family, not only dressing up for the day, but by helping the couple to DIY the lot!

Jenn made her own veil and fascinator, the invitations, her bouquet, the boutonnieres, the cake, the decorations and the signs. Skip made his own Groom’s cake – a bowling ball and pins – and helped Jenn wherever she needed it! Jenn’s sister and maid of honour made all the cute cupcakes and each Bridesmaid maid their own fascinators. The couple decided not to include anybody in their wedding that they didn’t know – so they had a friend perform the ceremony and other friends chip in with food, hair and make up.

I am obsessed with themed things, so naturally the wedding had to have a theme. Our overall theme was “vintage vacation”. From there we had mini-themes inside the big one. The brides cake and cupcakes were woodland (to go with the mountains). The suggested attire was western. The groomsmen and Dads wore western shirts. The bridesmaids wore headpieces and carried fans, saloon girl style. Both the bride and groom wore cowboy boots (which we already owned)… the groom also had spurs, the hat, the whole shebang! Our favors were vacation & western themed, as well as our decorations, popcorn & candy bar.

Insead of dancing, the wedding was rounded off with fun and games including eating doughnuts on a string, two photobooths, a candy and a popcorn bar.

Wow! Jenn & Skip I am blown away by your wedding. Thanks so much for sharing it!
