Full of rich opulent tones and texture and bold design statements today’s feature, the brain-child of Claire Macintyre and Georgina of Ruby Weddings and featuring British burlesque star Eliza Delite it’s sure to inspire. An intoxicating mix of warmth meets formality and vintage with a contemporary twist…that’s my favourite kind! Pay attention peeps, this is how to do a vintage inspired wedding…
From Claire: Heatherden Hall at Pinewood Studios is the most amazing venue. Its dark paneled dining room, high ceilings with twinkling chandeliers and its beautiful gardens, impressive location and the pure excitement that you feel being actually in Pinewood Studios, have, for the past year, left me screaming to produce a vintage style bridal shoot since the moment I found out about its use as a wedding venue. We wanted to create a feeling of warmth, light and darkness, opulence and also a little touch of melancholy. Not usually something you look for in a wedding shoot! But we felt that Wallis & Edward, for all their fabulousness, always seemed a little bored and melancholy. At least in their images anyway. The styling, btw, absolutely was not meant to be era correct. Who has time for THAT!
All the suppliers involved with this mammoth shoot were on my list of “Must Work With Creatives” for a long time now. From Joanna Sheers at Death + Glory and her incredible mind that provided exquisite furs, beetle wing crown and the most stunning 24 carat gold leafed real scorpion headpiece, Karen at Rock the Frock Bridal and her truly immaculate taste in vintage and vintage inspired wedding gowns, to the beautiful floral arrangements from Flowers by Kirsty, and all the others on our cast and crew.
Statement and sass by the bucket-load…you needn’t emulate, just pay “homage” with your own brand of style.
