A Modern Vintage Fairytale Shoot

For this shoot to show off her new affordable collection of vintage wedding dresses, Ciara Mullan who owns Dita Florita, wanted to show how vintage dresses can be intergrated into a modern wedding setting. After brainstorming with her team, a subtle fairtytale theme was decided upon including apples and broken mirrors (those glasses!)

“There was a lot of talk regarding the word ‘vintage’ and how it is represented within the wedding industry, they explained. “With this is mind the idea of an injection of modern into the vintage wedding scene was needed to show that traditional vintage was not on the way.”

The venue, Plateau Resturant provided this modern element. Based in the centre of Canary Wharf, the restaurant had a terrace that overlooked Cabot Square which ended up being the perfect second location for the outside shots.

Gorgeous! And I just love the broken mirror glasses don’t you? If only you could see through them! Thank you to Ciara and the whole team for sharing this shoot with us today.
