As promised here is the 2nd part of my lavender fields shoot. All very 1970’s inspired and perfectly styled by Charley from London Bride. Part 1 can be found here.
And just as a teaser – and for a little something to make you smile (I do still – every time I watch it) please enjoy this incredible video filmed by Paul Gwilliams and edited by Jon Collins. It captures the fun, warmth and romance of the day
(forgive me but my blog is not letting me embed this video at the moment – so PLEASE click below – you’ll love it – I promise!)
This part of the shoot was photographed earlier in the day, you can see some behind the scenes imagery on London Bride here! We came straight from hair and makeup where Severin from The Hepburn Collection had created bouncy Jerry Hall style waves and make-up artist Tammi Nguyen created inspired make-up of a neutral slightly smoky eye and bold, sexy deep red lips. We were orignally inspired by the 1970’s flake advert of the lady painting in a field, and with the 70’s having a big fashion comback, Charley found an amazing jumpsuit to use. Unfortunately at the last minute it was unavaliable, but instead, we showed how you could look incredible on your wedding day in high street fashion and a few finds from ebay!
Steph atFairyNuff Flowers put together a beautiful bouquet of iconically 70’s white carnations and ivy. Bet you never thought you’d see carnations look so amazing!For our second look we switched the bride’s bouquet to a romantic and striking rose and lavender hand-tied posy with the stems showing, and Severin added a fishtail plait. Charley styled our 70’s groom in a navy vintage velvet blazer from Tweedmans Vintage with matching bow tie and his buttonhole put together by Steph complimented the bouquet. Sarah and Jamie, both actors AND our real life bride and groom to be really did an amazing job working some romance for the camera.
I was extreme delighted that this part of the shoot has also been featured on the infamous Love My Dress blog – you can see that hereand this also features much more detail from Charley about the styling.
