This wedding shoot is a fresh take on the popular 50s' wedding theme

Like colorful weddings? Then you’re all going to flip out over this adorable retro inspired wedding shoot. The theme for the shoot was ’Head in the clouds’ a name inspired by the model’s stunning turquoise hair and a fluffy cloud installation. The aim of this shoot was to mix the elegance and style of a 1950s wedding with a big and bold jeweled tone color scheme. It’s a fresh take on a traditional vintage theme.

Flowers had a major role in the styling of the shoot. The flowers had to be big and bold for the striking bride and complement her sense of fun and adventure. Gorgeous rich purples, scarlets, yellows and pinks were used throughout all the floral pieces. The bride’s bouquet was full of pink piano spray roses, ranunculus, veronica, and waxflowers. Gently arching stems of Clematis and striking yellow craspedia gave the bouquet a sense of movement and fun.

They used jewel colors for the rest of the decor, such as the bottles. All of this was set in place perfectly with the addition of little details like the balloons, vintage furniture, luggage and lace aisle piece. The range of styled props really helped to tell the story.

The bride’s alternative look inspired the choice of outfit, a two piece by House of Olichon. House of Ollichon pride themselves on being different and bucking ‘old-skool’ wedding traditions. Their beautiful Le Faye top and swing skirt nods to the traditional but then turns the other way. This fun wearable two piece is a great alternative to the big wedding dress.
