Retro Italy Engagements

Janel & Jim are one of those couple’s the completely ooze cool. Their retro style – vespas, rockabilly hair, vans, pin up shoes and a teeny tiny dog – played huge part in their engagament session. Stay tuned for their gorgeous ‘retro Italian’ themed wedding next!

Mirror Mirror

I am all about the swooning this (slightly) sunny Saturday morning. I love the idea of using the vintage mirror in so many different but equally gorgeous ways.

An Urban Fairytale

Hurrah! Part two of Caroline Ghetes’ amazing vintage inspired bridal sessions is live! This second installment has a much more modern twist to it as Caroline wanted to show how vintage fashion can work in super modern, urban suroundings. She scoured Etsy for the majority of the gorgeous pieces to go in this shoot. The ever so popular 50’s style tea dress was from ghmarketplace, the sparkly tulle veil was handmade with vintage material from the 1940’s by Liaison, the pink and the peacock hairpieces were by Chamberry Cherry and finally the dramatic bouquet was actually made by Caroline herself. 

(Just in case you missed it, Part one is here)

Vendors involved in the shoot included:
Chamberry Cherry
Rachel Larraine
Baroque And Roll
Crimson Empress

Thanks again to Caroline for sharing these with us. I am waiting with baited breath for the third and final installment!

Offbeat Bride

Ron & Tessa got married at The Uptown Theater in Kansas City and I am crazy about their gorgeous offbeat wedding! The room they tied the knot in was called The Cabaret Room which dates back to the 1920’s but is now used to host rock concerts. This pretty much perfectly reflected their vintage, rock n roll day!

Tessa found a taffeta-free alternative vintage style dress by Allure Bridal and Ron wore a bowler hat and spectator shoes along with a vest and pocket watch, all of which added to their theme. The couple decided an over floral wedding was not for them and instead chose to incorporate feathers wherever they could. Although Tessa chose to take a walk down their beaten aisle carrying a traditional bouquet and Ron wore a boutonniere, they completely skipped the floral centrepieces, opting instead for a vast array of gorgeous ostrich plumes in teal and black to match their colour scheme. Tessa also wore a gorgeous feather hairpiece which she bought from Etsy seller YJdesign, and finally one of my favourite touches, the feather theme was rounded off by the cute bird cake topper made by Etsy seller cornflakegirl.

Thanks to Tessa & Ron for sharing their gorgeous day with us!

Layered Grey Tulle

Right my lovelies, prepare to be wowed. I discovered Amanda & Jeffery’s wedding when browsing Etsy for a tutu no less. I found seller Monique Martinez of Ouma Clothing who made Amanda’s GORGEOUS layered grey/blue, tulle dress and immediately knew I had to try and feature this wedding! 

The Bridesmaids were treated to similar dresses (but each with their own individual twist) from Ultra Suite and Jeffery and his boys wore suits from Req Square in Queens Plaza Brisbane. I also can’t leave out talking about thise cute litle cars! They all belong to Amanda’s Dad and are vintage Austin A3o’s ( a classic British car.)

The Austrailian couple had their ceremony at the ultra modern Brisbane Powerhouse New Farm  and choose local buskers (who were only 16!) to perform the music. Their reception took place at River Room Southbank. Jeffery’s family come from Thailand, so in order to incorporate this into their big day, the couple infused their wedding with a beautiful Asian colour scheme. The wedding day was rounded off by a 80’s disco that went on late into the night.

Thanks so much to Amanda & Jeffery for taking the time to share their gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous day with us!
