French Kiss Shoot from Vela Images

Get ready for an eye full of loveliness!!! This prettiest of shoots was captured by Greta from Vela Images with gorgeous dresses and headpieces from Natalie Chan. They were kind enough to ask both Judit and I to provide a few stationery and food props for it. Isn't it just divine? Greta shares details of the shoot below...

This was such a fun little shoot to do. We wanted to be a little more daring and different with a vintage theme. Most of the vintage weddings we work on are very beautiful and traditional, which we of course love but we thought it would be fun to try a not so traditional vintage wedding theme but to still retain beautiful and feminine vintage elements. So after watching the movie "Bright Young Things" we decided to use this as our inspiration. "Bright Young Things" is a movie about young and carefree London aristocrats and bohemians, as well as society in general, in the late 1920s through the early 1940s. It was written and directed by Stephen Fry and is so visually rich in 1920 to 1940's vintage glamour.
Rather than a long gown we opted for a knee length cocktail dress from Natalie Chan which is very feminine with lots of girly detail so our bride would still stand out from the crowd and feel special on her wedding day. Rather than a veil or traditional wedding headpiece we choose a matching pink 1940's style bow and button head piece and a fur stole. We wanted our flowers to be dramatic but still very pretty so we went for a mixture of bright and light pink shade blooms that would tie in with the dress but would also make a statement.
We really enjoyed being creative with this shoot and we hope it inspires some of your lovely brides to experiment with colour and different vintage styles. This theme would work very well for a glamorous evening cocktail wedding. You could even ask guests to dress in 1920 to 1940's style attire.
