[Photoshoot] Modern City Wedding with a Vintage Vibe

2016-01-20_0010.jpg

My first photoshoot was an amazing experience. Since setting up my own business, I had been eager to meet a photographer who would take some beautiful photos of my flowers, and organising a photoshoot seemed to be the perfect way to do so!

I met Charlotte from Bristol Contemporary Photography¬†and Sarah from The Rosie Shaw Cake Company at the first wedding fayre I did. We instantly got on well and it wasn’t long before we began organising a photoshoot to showcase our work.

Kate from Heartfelt Vintage provided the dresses for the shoot, which are incredible, original vintage wedding dresses. She even had a photo of the original bride wearing one of the dresses! If you are a fan of vintage clothing, you absolutely must go and see Kate’s shop up in Clifton, it’s a true little gem and they even serve cake!

Rosie from Goldbrick House gave us access to the whole venue, including the top floor with gorgeous views across Bristol. I have always loved Goldbrick House, not only for its food and cocktails but also for the beautiful building it is, with its hidden corners and gorgeous staircases. It was perfect for our Modern Wedding with a Vintage Vibe theme ūüôā

Emily from Able Mabel (who also made the red fascinator pictured below) and Claire from Claire Clark Make Up work closely with Kate from Heartfelt Vintage, and are experts in the Vintage look. When creating the three looks we were after from the 20s, 30s and 50s, they made each model look amazing and truly reflective of that era.

I was also extremely grateful that 3 of my friends agreed to model for us for the day, thank you girls, you look amazing!! (and of course thank you to Mike as well, the handsome groom!)

[Photoshoot] Clevedon Hall and Clevedon Pier

Last year, I was invited to take part in a photoshoot organised by Kayleigh Adams Photography at Clevedon Hall. It was my first time in this incredible wedding venue, and I was absolutely taken away with its’ grandeur and beauty! From the stunning grounds (complete with deer!), view on the sea, to the beautiful rooms inside, I can only imagine that any wedding there would be magical!

For the shoot, I was lucky to work with an incredible team of women. I met Kayleigh at a wedding show earlier that year, and was instantly drawn to her stall as she had made it so cosy and welcoming, it was impossible not to go over and say hi! And I’m glad I did as she as lovely a person as she is a talented photographer! Kayleigh organised this shoot and the suppliers involved¬†with it.

Kayleigh was keen to work with Longfield Hospice, who have a bridal shop in Stroud. So yes, all of these dresses are pre-loved, and available to buy at amazing prices whilst all going to a good cause, can’t get much better than that really!
