Chintz, Pattern Clash & Maximalism Meets English Country Garden: Most Curious are Back for their Spring 2020 Wedding Shows!

Oh hellll yes, Most Curious is BACK! The wedding show for the style savvy couples and only the coolest kids is heading to London, Norwich, and for the first time ever, Manchester (!!) in February and March and I am SO HERE for this promotional shoot.

These images blew me away! They’re so very inspiring, so very unique and will give you a great preview of what’s in store at the shows. Harking back to the 70s and 90s with its chintz meets English country garden vibes, it somehow still feels bang up to date and modern. I would LOVE to see a real bride rocking this floral jumpsuit (literally made from curtain material!) down the aisle.

Show founder Becky, told me all about the inspiration for this one-of-a-kind wedding shoot which was put together using suppliers that will be taking part in the show. “Our themes include the mighty return of chintz, pattern clash and maximalism. We completely love the austere and minimalist vibes that have been part of recent trends and see them being around for a long time, but for us, looking forward, we feel a shift towards florals, stripes, pattern pattern and pattern, bows and frills. Think 70s and 90s Laura Ashley. So much so, we commissioned Velvet Johnstone to make this perfect, puff sleeve jumpsuit out of vintage curtain fabric!”

Night Fever: A Glam Seventies Bridal Shoot for Rock n Roll Bride Magazine

The Seventies was a decade of unforgettable fashion, giving us hippie chic, power dressing, glam rock and punk. From Farrah Fawcett to Bianca Jagger, Cher to Debbie Harry, the fashion of this 10-year period was iconic in every sense of the word.

For the fashion editorial shoot in issue 27 I wanted to hone in on this fantastic decade but to bring it bang up to date for the modern bride. Think sequins, ostrich feathers, sparkles and a killer pair of colourful heels!

I LOVED publishing this one (and you guys seemed to too, despite the unconventional cover shot!) and so today I wanted to share some of the images that ended up on the proverbial cutting room floor.

Our stunning models were BFFs Sheri aka Forever Yours Betty and Amanda aka Honeypop Kisses who flew all the way down from Scotland to marry each other for us (ha!) I hope you enjoy looking through the full set.

Seventies Inspired Vegas Elopement with a Seven Month’s Pregnant Bride!

Pia and Chris met through their mutual love of Rock n Roll, when they were both using the same recording studio. Pia ended up joining Chris’ band and they’ve been playing together ever since.

They got engaged on Valentine’s Day and the very next day they found out she was pregnant! They began by trying to plan a big family wedding, with guests from New Zealand (where Chris is from) and the US (where Pia is from) travelling over to the UK (where they now live) but it all proved quite difficult and stressful with a baby on the way. In the end they decided to throw tradition completely out the window and to elope. This also negated the issue of having a religious ceremony. With the bride’s family being Hindu and the groom’s, Christian, they would have probably ended up needing two ceremonies to keep everyone happy, which they really did not want. So, with Pia seven months pregnant they flew to Vegas and were married by Elvis instead!

“Our wedding had a retro and 1970s feel with an old school Vegas vibe”, Pia said. “We are very inspired by the fashion, music and the general feeling of the 1970s so this inspired our wedding too. I love looking at old, classic weddings photos of Mick and Bianca Jagger, Priscilla and Elvis, John and Yoko and the final scene in The Graduate. I also love pictures of the Beatles in India and wanted to bring in some of those elements and my family’s traditions in with the Hindu garlands and the bindi.”

Their ceremony was held at The Graceland Chapel which they followed by taking photographs around the city with their photographer Ashley Marie Myers, ending the night with a private dinner for two at the Eiffel Tower Restaurant overlooking the Bellagio fountains.

Bohemian ‘Summer of Love’ Wedding at Home

Lucie and Leigh were married in Essex at the bride’s aunt’s house. They hired a tipi and set it up in the garden!

“As we got married in my auntie’s back garden it made the whole vibe of the wedding very casual and had a more intimate feel”, said the bride. “The day had a 70s Summer of Love vibe and was very laid back and bohemian.”

“Our wedding ceremony was just so beautiful. Even more beautiful than I could ever of planned. The sky was so blue and the sun was shinning from the moment I opened my eyes. We had an outside ceremony with no plan b so someone was on our side that day. My aunt had roses planted in the courtyard which was directly In front of where we said our vows. We had 24 rows of chairs to seat all 120 of our guest and an aisle made from of Persian rugs which were hired from penny at The Little Lending Company. We kept the ceremony short and sweet because, let’s face it, no one goes to a wedding for the soppy stuff they go to get smashed!”

Vintage Sixties & Seventies Inspired Wedding

333-a-1960s-1970s-inspired-wedding-key-reflections

Natasha and Shaun’s wedding had a vintage 60s and 70s theme to reflect their love of retro fashion, music and style. They’re both obsessed with The Beatles so that had a big influence too.

They decided to marry in June as they wanted a summer wedding. “We also wanted to go on our honeymoon to Glastonbury straight away!” Natasha laughed. It took us just over a year to plan the wedding but right from the start we knew exactly what we wanted. We have a lot in common – more than just our love of The Beatles! We also love art, fashion, vintage, festival and films so we brought all those things into the theme of the day too. When it came to styling the day we both agreed we wanted a small, yet very relaxed wedding. We also wanted the day to echo weddings from the 60s and 70s, with a vintage feel. Our main colours were gold, taupe and mint.”

“This was my first styled shoot, “explained stylist Elizabeth. “I wanted to do it to flex my creative muscles. I wanted to show that I can think way outside the box and deliver a product that hasn’t been seen before. I wanted to show that I can be a trendsetter in the industry. I also did it to meet and work with new vendors, which was a great experience.”
