Modern-Vintage Inspiration for that Modern Bride

Funny, isn't it, how colors wax and wane in popularity. But this gorgeous hue is a permanent fixture on my small list of favorite shades for any good while now.



"We based the theme of the shoot around a peach fruit, focusing on the attributes that the peach has; soft texture and pale pink coloring. Ambient candle lighting and plush cascading fabrics having a massive number of textures also supplied by the stunning flower arrangements joined together to give a soft opulent look."

We shot between the gorgeous interiors of the main house such as the main entrance hallway as well as their spectacular kitchen, then we made our way around the grounds which feature amazing flower beds, secret gardens, and also the art of topiary everywhere. It was so fun exploring and being able to make use of such versatile settings all in one place.

The Fashion

Our bride for that day was the gorgeous Lovette, whose look I wanted to become super pretty and feminine, having a slightly cooler edge, so I contacted Lennie Beare, a Norwich-based jeweler to make use of some of her abstract brass earrings which I'd been obsessing over. I did this before even knowing which vintage dresses we'd use from Cambridge Vintage Bridal. In the end, we went for three beautiful dresses from Cambridge Vintage Bridal, which curates original vintage gowns even though the third dress, Otille which we used is new but a classic-inspired gown.

Our first look may be the Joni Dress

As the 1980s go, this vintage David Fielden piece is a brilliantly understated find. Edwardian style, the fabric is silk georgette, trimmed with lace. It consists of a blouse and it has a silk camisole after which a complete long skirt.

The silk is an oyster color and also the underskirt and camisole a pale peaches. There are many ways it may be styled, which makes it perfect for an autumn or spring wedding, and because it was originally worn in 1982 it appears and feels super contemporary. Here

Our second dress may be the Queenie, a classic Frank Usher number.

This vintage Frank Usher gown is a blush pink, long-sleeved, lace joy. Hailing in the 1980s, the batwing sleeves, cinched waistband, and floaty skirt provide a fantastic form, and also the tiny details, like the covered buttons, behind are just lovely. Looks great with heels, boots, or barefoot and may be styled up for any structure look or styled down for more of the boho feel.

Lastly, we shot the Otillie on Lovette, a classically inspired dress.

Based on original vintage wedding dresses with sleeves in the 1930s which had become very delicate, they desired to preserve the design and style so created this newly made piece. Slightly modernized with lace sleeves and also the addition of the zip along with a more robust poly chiffon fabric, Ollie may be the indestructible younger sister from the Mirabelle dress! The long train, eyelash lace, and complete lace panels make her unique and simple to style with various colored slips.

For this final Bridal look on Lovette and also to complete the general look, Kat used two roses cuddled together at the top of the veil. She then nestled plenty of dried flowers randomly put into the hair, Jenny then sewed flower heads to the veil developing a cascading ethereal dreamy look.

The Styling Flowers

For Flowers Kat of used subtle pale peaches and dusky plum tones mixed along with natural textured bracken, clematis seed heads, and delicate dried flowers to give an attractive organic look.

The geometric design provides a clean and modern look yet fitted very well in contrast to using the soft and rustic theme in our shoot. The soft peach tones compliment one another throughout. Our cake is made by local cake makers and cafes and would be a four-layer vanilla sponge, having a freeze-dried rashly buttercream which gave it the gorgeous blush tone.
