I’m really pleased to share this vintage themed wedding shoot with you today, brought together by a team of passionate wedding suppliers in the East Midlands. Amanda from Something Borrowed Bridal talked us through the ideas behind the shoot…
“So much work and preparation is put into planning a wedding and huge amounts of commitment and organisation are required even when it is a wedding photo shoot! Then there is the weather, will it rain or will the sun shine gloriously down upon us to produce images the photographer can work with to dazzle us with in years to come? Well on this occasion the gods were feeling generous as we arrived at Barton Hall to create the most perfect day, a wedding photo shoot to inspire all brides to be!"
“We had all worked together as a team, a collaboration of some of the best wedding suppliers in the local area to produce awe inspiring wedding scenes to whet your appetite!”
“We decided to use the incredible venue of Barton hall with its handsome and bold house frontage; delicate and beautiful orangery with fabulous intricate iron work on the glass panels and breath-taking glass domes in the ceiling, creating rainbows of light throughout.”
“This fabulous architecture is topped with the beautiful sloping Gardens. I am a bit of a romantic and was bowled over by the natural beauty of this venue, even the stone benches under the ancient trees added glamour to the garden. The beautiful trees within the grounds added stunning focal points to the gardens and added beautifully to the photos taken by Sarah-Jane of Daring to Dream Photography.”
“We had a selection of ladies modelling who all were made all the more lovely by Ainsley and Gracie Lou who worked non stop during the day, whilst simultaneously watching her two toddlers who were intent on escape. They really showed their talent at remaining calm and turning already beautiful ladies into movie stars, just as all brides to be deserve.”
“Five of the models were dressed by Carolyn’s Collection in mother of the bride outfits and sported some incredible outfits and spectacular hats.”
“Our handsome male models were dressed by Vickers Menswear, as was the younger member of the wedding party. they all seemed to thoroughly enjoy the wedding shoot with plenty of time for mischief and climbing trees!”
“One cheeky member of the wedding party even ran off with the bride!”
“We had three unique beautiful brides who were all styled in wedding dresses from Something Borrowed Bridal. The focus of the day was a Vintage theme and each of the dresses was planned to encapsulate that.
The beautiful co-ordinating flowers were created with love and attention by Charlotte Davies. From the magnificent vintage headdress that makes such a statement, to the loosely tied vintage bouquet. The scent of the blooms filled the room beautifully.”
“We had a gorgeous little bridesmaid for the wedding photo shoot who worked the role of princess perfectly!”
“The bride arrived in style in a Vintage VW Camper van from Fun Dubbin Occasions perfect for the vintage theme.”
“The bride crossed the breath-taking lawns for the ceremony shoot to take place in the orangery, which had been styled in a vintage fashion by Through the Looking Glass Events and Charlotte Davies Flowers, with a beautiful aisle laid with vases of flowers at each end.”
“I love how the models truly got into part – look at the emotion in this picture!”
“The Orangery was once more transformed by Through the Looking Glass events into the reception venue with round tables adorned with vintage china, candelabras, and bunting decorated the walls.”
“Everything about this wedding shoot spoke of charm, nostalgia and elegance. The incredibly styled wedding cake was a perfect touch - in a duck egg blue by Cakes from the Heart.”
“For the evening shoot, the wedding party and guests relaxed in the opulent Vines Restaurant, after what had been a brilliant day and certainly one to remember for everyone involved!”
Thank you so much to Amanda from Something Borrowed Bridal for sending in this Vintage themed photo shoot! I hope that it has given you some great inspiration for your wedding day.
