Retro Bridal Looks for Under £40!

Retro Bridal Shoot (4)

If there’s one thing I hope reading Rock n Roll Bride has taught you, it’s that you don’t need to spend all your savings to have a fantastic wedding. Starting off married life with a mountain of debt is no fun for anyone which I why I was thrilled to be submitted this retro bridal shoot using vintage dresses that all cost less than £40 each!

Stylist Ines of Wedding Bazaar Vienna told me, “You don’t always need a new dress to achieve a stunning look and that was the idea behind this photo shoot. All the dresses we used were second-hand and sourced on the internet for less then £40, or they were lent by friends.”

“I’ve always loved Mario Testino’s more colourful dramatic fun photo shoots”, says owner Polly who styled the shoot, “and felt that along with recent trends for adding bright colours and metallics around eyes, it was the right time to add more drama and colour to a bridal shoot. We wanted to do this through almost every element including the make up, stationery, cake, flowers and props. Our vision was complimented by Otaduy’s edgy sleek dresses and jackets.”

Heartbreak Hotel: An Elvis & Priscilla Editorial for Rock n Roll Bride Magazine

Elvis & Priscilla Wedding Shoot

Jacket: Next Shoes: Faith Bodysuit: ASOS Rings: House of Bourgeois from Folly Boutique

One of the most fun and creative parts of my job is the editorial fashion shoots that I create with my INCREDIBLY TALENTED photo shoot team. For issue 10 (Sept/Oct 2016) we wanted to channel one of the original Rock n Roll couple: Elvis and Priscilla Presley. We used just one model, Tarla, who was actually the perfect Elvis and Priscilla, and we shot at Hotel Pelirocco in Brighton.

This editorial was created to pay homage to their 1967 wedding at the Aladdin Hotel, Las Vegas. Their iconic wedding images refuse to date, and to this day are still used as inspiration by so many Rock n Roll brides.

As soon as I saw this festive photo shoot, complete with real life reindeer, I knew I had to share it. With Christmas just around the corner (less than a week to go!) it made me feel all warm, snuggly and super, duper excited for the big day!

Photographer Kellee Quinn from the south west of Scotland told me all about it. “Harelaw Farm was the perfect choice of venue (it’s where I’d get married if I hadn’t shimmied up the aisle with my husband already) and it also just happens to be next door to this new wedding venue (their first wedding is April 2017)…. a Reindeer Farm!! ‘Pogo’, who is in the shoot, is more like a pet and the owner of the biggest antlers I’ve ever seen.”

Rainbow Roller Disco Brides

Spray paint… glitter… neon… If you like all things colourful then you’re going to adore this roller disco inspired bridal shoot!

“The theme of this shoot was a mash up of all of our favourite things”, said photographer Jessica Withey. “That meant glitter, rainbows, unicorns, balloons – like a dream you had when you were 4!”

“This shoot derived after a long year of working in the wedding industry. Each of us involved had a desire to shoot something ‘for us’, in our style – without being paid, and without a style brief from a client. Working in the wedding industry you wind up seeing a lot of weddings and after a while you’re ready to see something dramatically different. So we decided to shake some traditions up and get creative. Why can’t a bride wear a glitter parting in her hair?”
