Summer of Love

In order to combat the dark dingy days I thought it was about time to bring back a little sunshine into our lives. We have been lucky with ‘The Summer of Love’ shoot as the photographs have appeared on the front cover of Unique Bride Magazine as well as in The Boho Wedding Blog but now I get to share MY favourite shots with you all.

Recreating the 1940’s …

Last thursday saw the fruits of our labour come together at our 1940s inspired vintage photo shoot at Avoncroft Museum, near Bromsgrove, Birmingham, West Midlands who let us use some their amazing buildings, we especially loved the 1940’s prefab.

Our photographer was the amazing Louise Holgate  who spent the day snapping away at our model, Helena. I created her 1940’s vintage look by creating Faux Betty Bangs and victory rolls in her hair and a simple 40s makeup. I will be doing tutorials on each of these looks in the near future so watch this space.

Louise quickly worked her magic and has produced some amazing pictures for us to have sneaky peek at while we wait for the collection to be put together.

I would just like to say a big thank you to Helena, my model, whose beautiful face graces our photos (you really can’t take a bad picture of this girl. Stunning!), to Louise for agreeing to be our photographer and taking these gorgeous photographs, to Simon from Avoncroft Museum, who stood patiently by as we set up shots in the prefab and lastly to Giulia Scrimieri, costume designer extraordinaire, who came to my rescue and raided her costume collection to provide me with an original 1940’s outfit.

We found out on our visit you can also get married at Avoncroft so if you’re planning a wedding, especially a vintage wedding, Avoncroft is well worth a look.
