I was lucky to take part in a 1940s styled wedding shoot with the very talented Suzy Mitchell recently. We were on location at the picturesque Denton Hall and had a wonderful day, despite the rain! Suzy dreamt up the idea with our good friend Annabel Bailey of Annabel Bailey Make-Up and together they amassed a brilliant team to dress the shoot.
Thanks to all those who were involved in making the shoot a success...Sarah Richardson of Leafy Couture, Jackie Davison of Rose Pink Vintage, Annabel Bailey, Hannah De’Ath (hair), Nicky at Iain Henderson Designs, Claire Gould at The English Wedding blog for her bespoke wedding stationery and calligraphy and Hannah Bairstow for facilitating the use of Denton Hall, and finally Barry Nuttall for the car. The models Nicole and Alex also did a brilliant job!
Here are the results....
We started at the beautiful little church in Denton village (in the rain!)
Luckily there was a stylish vintage car on hand to transport the happy couple down the winding drive to the hall!

Time for tea!
By Betty felt headpiece with beaded centre, in blush pink; to complement Nicole's fabulous vintage dress.
Another bridal headpiece 'bouquet', a selection of sinamay, lace and beaded wire flowers.
After tea the sun came out! Annabel touches up Nicole's make-up prior to shooting the final scene.

One of my favourite hats, and a perfect match for Nicole's 'going away' outfit which is an original vintage dress belonging to Suzy's mum! Doesn't it look great?
