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.”
Stacey and Ian’s wedding was held in South London, where they live. “We live in Wandsworth, so we wanted our wedding to reflect our love for our lovely borough”, the bride said. “Admittedly, it isn’t as cool as Camden or as high brow as Chelsea, but it is sweet and friendly. We chose the grand chamber at Wandsworth Town Hall for our ceremony which was absolutely beautiful.”
“The reception was at The Antelope pub in Tooting. We loved how lovely it was yet it was just a simple London pub. We immediately fell in love with the laid back and effortless atmosphere and the food was delicious too. I’m surprised more couples don’t choose a pub for their reception as there is no hire fee (just a minimum spend) and they have a charm that only a London pub can deliver.”
James and Polly’s wedding was a mixture of Halloween and autumnal themes. They were married on October 31st so it only made sense! They decided on Halloween because it’s both of their favourite holidays.
“When we chatted about getting married, we were struggling to think of a month to do it”, the bride began. “I think I jokingly said ‘What about Halloween?’ and suddenly we realised it was the perfect day since we celebrate It every year anyway! To be honest I don’t think any of our guests were surprised when they were told the date.”
“When we started planning the day and looking for wedding inspiration it soon became apparent how much we wanted the autumnal colours to play a part in the wedding too. It’s such a beautiful time of year and our ceremony venue, Sheffield Botanical Gardens, could not have provided a better backdrop. The colours in the park were so perfect.”
“Although Halloween was our chosen day to get married we wanted to keep it bright, colourful and cosy rather than the darker colours you can associate with the holiday”, she continued. “Every year we have a Halloween party and we go all out with decorations and fancy dress. I think most of our guests were assuming that’s how the wedding would be too. However we wanted them to be surprised. We wanted it to be more pretty than scary with just hints of Halloween with the table skeletons, Halloween bunting dotted and SO many pumpkins!”
