Love in the Time Of…Vintage Styled Wedding Shoot for Wed Devon Magazine

Way back some 16 months ago when my little boy was a mere 2 weeks old, I rocked up to the incredible Pickwell Manor near Croyde and put my stylist head on for the day (no easy feat with husband and newborn in tow!) to work with a wonderful team of South West suppliers, creating an ‘era’s’ shoot to grace the pages of Wed Devon Magazine.  It was photographer Lucy Shergold’s vision to create a shoot where we published the images entirely in black and white – directly influenced by the iconic images of John French – the strong poses reflecting the confidence of today’s modern bride with the feminine glamour of a bygone age…

Vintage inspired weddings are enormously popular with many brides today and it’s easy to see why; they are beautiful, elegant and impeccably detailed, but it was also important to us that we encouraged Bride’s to have the confidence to show elements of who they are – now. That you can create a wedding style that pays homage to the past in a very modern way.
