Soft Hues

Don’t judge me ok? I should be in bed (for those of your following me on Twitter you will have no doubt seen the regular updates about my flu!) but I have a compulsion to blog that can not be stopped…

Lisa Rigby shot this outdoor wedding last week and I can’t get enough of the lovely pastel shades. I’m not normally one for subtlety (hello? my hair is pink) but the soft hues of her blue Stephanie James Couture dress coupled with her stunning bouquet and birdcage veil are undeniably gorgeous. The wedding ceremony actually took place at Mount Auburn Cemetery.

Thrift Store Find

A few months ago, photographer Jennifer Williams’ sister found this gorgeous vintage dress in a thrift store for $10. Being the helpful sibling that she is, she knew it would be perfect for a photo shoot and so bought it right away. Jen went on to tell me the whole story:

The minute I saw it I couldn’t wait to plan a shoot centered around it! I
couldn’t get those old images of Bonnie and Clyde out of my head from the
old 1967 movie. Most of my inspiration was centered around that, although
I mixed and matched decades into my own take on vintage fashion. Then I
found out we had permission to shoot at this salvage yard and the shoot
became this beautiful classy take on grunge. As weird as it sounds, that
is the best way I can describe it.

Vintage Vegas

I’ve never been to Vegas and I’m not all together convinced I’d like the craziness, but when I see images like these I know it can’t be just one big city of sin. According to photographer Maria Mack, Las Vegas doesn’t have to be all bright lights, strippers, gambling and bachelor parties.

These beautiful, retro shots show Vegas in a much softer light, – one with cute heart signs and quirky vintage touches. Oh yes, this is a Vegas I could get on board with…

Thanks to Maria for showing me the diversity of a Las Vegas photo shoot!

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…
