A Groovy Kinda Love – The 1960’s are BACK!

January 21, 2011

“The idea for a 60’s inspired shoot came about after I noticed we’re seeing lots and lots of vintage 1950’s style about and I figured it was about time the 1960’s gave it a run for its money,” explained photographer Shelly. “I had a vision of a pink bowler hat and from there, everything else fell into place.”

Shelly invited planner Kelly (of Boho Weddings) and Asher to model for her. “I knew I wanted mini dresses in a Mary Quant style and Debbie over at Danielle Lara Couture created these two especially for the shoot. When I went to collect them, I ended up picking up a couple of others at the same time – I just couldn’t help myself!”

Shelly commissioned Muscari Whites to created her an heirloom bouquet of  pre-loved and found objects. Their brief was “pink, quintessentially British and a bit nuts”.  The bouquet even has a little telephone box on it and a London Underground sign.

Huge thanks to Shelley and everyone involved for sharing this awesome shoot with us today. Be sure to check the full vendor list after the gallery below.
