If there’s one thing I know for certain it’s that the brides (and grooms!) that read this blog sure do love colourful weddings. Which is why I’m convinced you’re all going to flip out over this adorable retro inspired wedding shoot. Submitted by Zoe (The Little Vintage Car Co.), Aneta (BrightSide Photography) and Lizzy (The Flower Story), this shoot was set up so they could flex their creative muscles and create something fun!
“The theme for the shoot was ’Head in the clouds’ a name inspired by our model’s stunning turquoise hair and our fluffy cloud installation”, they explained. “The aim of this shoot was to mix the elegance and style of a 1950s wedding with a big and bold jewelled tone colour scheme. We didn’t want to recreate a wedding from the 1950s, but wanted a fresh take on a traditional vintage theme.”
This colourful bridal shoot is so fun! You’ve gotta love model Amanda‘s pink hair (some loyal readers might recognise her as her unicorn wedding was featured inside issue 4!), the Couture Company dress and that fabulous Scottish landscape.
“When meeting with photographer Tub of Jelly, our conversation moved very quickly towards more fun and colourful options for the shoot – candy pink thistles and tiaras delicately constructed from metallic florals”, explained stylists Ginger and Lime.
Oh have I got a beauty of a photo shoot to share with you today! Inspired by the fabulous Bloom Floral separates collection by Rowan Joy, I have a sneaking suspicion you’re going to love it just as much as I do.
“The idea for the shoot came about when dress designer extraordinaire Rowan Joy posted an image of her latest creation on her Instagram and I dropped EVERYTHING and told her that I MUST do a shoot with her!” said photographer Caro Weiss. “The concept was for all things botanical and nature inspired so flora, fauna, butterflies and more were all thrown in the mix and we roped in flowery wizard Di from Myrtle and Bracken who created an incredible vertical garden and natural and wild bouquets and Janet from Rene Walrus who went wild with real taxidermy butterflies combined with her incredible accessories.”
If you loved This is England as much as I did, then you’re definitely going to adore this wedding shoot inspired by the ’86 series. Gotta love something with a bit of GRIT! The show is all about subcultures in the 1980s, as well as friendship and love, so it’s the perfect starting off point for a wedding themed shoot.
“These photos show that you can have the wedding of your dreams, something that truly reflects your personality without being thrown into debt for years to come!”, said Lauren, who worked on the shoot. “So as well as being cool and pretty, I wanted this shoot to be honest, real and raw. This is why it features real mods, original skinheads and goths. They are all real life friends and real couples! They all understand what the alternative way of life is about.”
The desert is one of my favourite places. It wasn’t always (dusty, dry, hot..!), but after visiting Nevada four or five times now, I’ve finally succumbed to it’s charms. It’s just so enormous and spectacular! It’s the kind of landscape that you’ll never see anywhere else so is it any surprise then that so many couples opt to drive out there for their wedding shoots?
This wedding inspiration shoot was put together by planner/ stylist Paloma Cruz Eventos. “The idea behind this shoot was a couple eloping in secret”, she explained. “This couple doesn’t follow the rules!”
When Israeli wedding photographers, Gamba Photographers and hair and make up artist Dafna Barel, decided to team up with a local barbershop to offer their couples a package where the can can get pampered together before the wedding, they decided to do a rockabilly inspired shoot to celebrate.
Hair stylist and make up artist Dafna, explains, “The inspiration behind the shoot was to demonstrate how we envision a perfect wedding day preparation, where the groom and bride get pampered and beautified together, along with their best friends. The style throughout the shoot was rockabilly, but kind of casual too as it’s very hot in Israel!”
