The inspiration for this shoot began with the continuing trend for the vintage look for weddings and a hot pink and ivory, spotty, giant windmill!  We really wanted to create a look which took the vintage style and then added a modern twist, so that there was a familiar yet contemporary feel; and a ‘bubblicious’ hot pink and lime colour scheme completed the concept.  Throughout the whole shoot we would take the traditional, turn it on its head to transpose the conventional to the unconventional.

Glass coffee cups have become synonymous with 1950’s so we used them, then expanded the glass theme to include the teapot and 3 tier, cake stand, and added some ‘bubblicious’ highlights with coloured gel beads and floral accents to ensure cohesion throughout the whole look.

The cake and stationery continued the spotty, hot pink and lime them, each combining effortlessly the traditional style with a modern look.

The cake was finished off with a handmade cherry topper and the stationery used a fun and informal font.  Each detail used gave a hint to the 1950’s whilst keeping the overall look firmly in the 21st century.

Our models showcased two, stunning 50’s swing dresses:  one in delicate lace and the other, simple, ivory satin.

Each outfit was complemented by an Audrey Hepburn inspired hair style and make up, which completed each look perfectly.

Contrasted against the delicate lace dress was a dramatic, handtied bouquet of carnations, and gerberas in a hot pink with green, button chrysanthemums inserts and an aspidistra leaf collar.  A simple posy of gerberas with beargrass complemented the simple satin dress beautifully.

A short, delicate veil with deep pink orchids and a ‘handbag’ of green, button chrysanthemums with ivory button design were also added; each item typical of the era but different in their design.
