We receive numerous requests to supply wedding industry photo shoots and this made us realise it was about time we did our own! It didn’t take long to decide on the theme as Easter was just around the corner and our own gardens were beginning to spring to life. Easter Vintage Glamour was decided upon – with a focus on gold and Chanel pink; Elizabeth’s favourite lipstick! A list of our favourite Essex suppliers was then drafted and ideas began to pile up on Pinterest.
We love vintage glamour and to tie this into spring required the beautiful setting of Baddow Park. A wedding venue set on the outskirts of Chelmsford, offering heaps of period features with its wonderful expanse of lawn and woodland was the ideal location for our shoot
The next key requirement was a photographer and after Elizabeth hired Kerrie Mitchell Photography for her family shoot last year, she knew Kerrie would be perfect for the job.
We knew we didn’t want our ‘bride’ (the stunning Marie Mansfield) to look too conventional so we opted for a shorter length dress and paired it with bright pink footwear. The ‘Crazy for You’ dress, supplied by Kitty & Dulcie is a true bargain at only £365!! Hair and Make up was perfected by the award winning Lisa from Essex Wedding Beauty who captured the relaxed glamour we were looking for.
Having worked with Claire from Lily & May on numerous weddings throughout Essex, we knew she would know exactly what we wanted and, as ever, delivered the perfect floral designs throughout the shoot from table arrangements and cake toppers to the pretty flower wand.
To complement our gold frames and the pink in the flowers, we thought the stationary produced by Russet and Gray was ideal.
Last but not least, Vintage Flair supplied all of the linens, tableware, china items, candlesticks, small children (our very own munchkins) Oh, and the pretty pink and gold ombre cake with rose scented frosting – yum! And finally, here is a small selection from over 400 photos we had to chose from. They capture all of the wonderful detail and show how vintage glamour can still apply when venturing into the woods on an egg hunt.
We are delighted to have our photoshoot featured on the amazing Want That Wedding blog. Click here to see our feature.
