“Paris is always a good idea” - Sabrina 1954.
Updated: Mar 10
When pondering where to shoot a stunning late -1950s vintage wedding dress, there was only ever one answer...
Working in collaboration with a fantastic Paris-based team, the shoot is beautiful in its simplicity and showcases the intricate details of the dress, which handily blends well with those Parisian city tones.
The dress is a subtle Champagne colour, made from silk brocade and has wonderful hand stitched, beaded embellishments across the front.
I love how works so well with Paris in the Autumn!
I love a mix of the really old and the really new generally - but think that there is something to be said for matching a vintage wedding dress with modern items, such as a leather jacket - especially with that quilted detail.
I love taking Cambridge Vintage Bridal out and about and shouting about slow fashion and how wonderful and unique vintage wedding dresses can be.
I hope you’ll agree that this is a very contemporary look, in the world’s most romantic city and the vintage wedding dress is simply timeless.
Vive la Vintage!
If you are thinking about getting married in Paris or elsewhere in the world, please check out Michelle @ Ruffled by Grace who managed this shoot and the team. Michelle is an ordained pastor and officiant.
