Modern-Vintage, Romantic Peachy Inspiration for the Modern Bride

“We based the shoots theme around a peach fruit, concentrating on the attributes that a peach has; soft texture and pale pink colouring. Ambient candle lighting and plush cascading fabrics with a massive variety of textures also provided by the stunning flower arrangements came together to give a soft opulent look.”

On top of all this was a meeting with Siobhan at Cambridge Vintage Bridal, who loaned us the original Annie Gough gown from the late sixties and shoes, it couldn’t have been more perfect.”

Additionally, there are dedicated vintage wedding dress companies. One of our favourites is the Cambridge Vintage Bridal company. Owner, Siobhan Mulholland-Cox, specialises in sourcing authentic vintage bridal gowns, which are cleaned and repaired (if needed). Siobhan also has her own studio based in Cambridge where brides can book an appointment to try on the dress. Siobhan says:

“Buying a vintage wedding dress means that your wedding dress will be totally unique, jaw-dropping and affordable. Most vintage gowns are in pristine condition having only been worn once and then put away in well-bound storage. My mission is to surface the best in class vintage gowns for the modern bride so that these gowns can bring joy and the WOW factor to someone’s big day – again. The collection spans the 1920s to the 1980s and the best bit is, if you try on a gown you love, you can take it away with you the same day. So, whether you are a huge vintage fan anyway, or having an initial nosey around at what a vintage dress could add to your big day; my top tip for brides is not to think that your entire wedding needs to be ‘vintage’ – it can be but it doesn’t have to be. Your vintage wedding dress is always going to be uniquely awesome, regardless of your overarching theme.”

“The dress featured in the shoot is an original 1950s gown. But unlike the 1950s, our ‘bride’ is wearing boots – we wanted to convey that vintage works for the modern bride and not every element of a wedding needs to be vintage; having a knock out, one of a kind gown is fine on it’s own! The gown featured in the shoot is the ‘Betty’ gown; she’s made of tulle and lace and I feel adds a playful aspect to the rustic nature of this woodland shoot. I’m thrilled with the photographs and hope that ‘Betty’ finds an owner soon, she has so much to give and can be styled in many ways.”

“Dresses were supplied by the lovely Siobhan from Cambridge Vintage Bridal. She has a huge stock of amazing vintage wedding dresses lovingly restored and the three dresses chosen for the shoot all originated from the 1970s. The flowy look of the dresses gave a relaxed feel to the overall look and stood out beautifully in amongst the greenery and glass of the venue.”

“The dress chosen for this shoot is an epic 1980s vintage piece but with lovely soft lines it floats beautifully in an outdoor setting. This dress very much borrows from Edwardian style wedding dresses with it’s high neck, feminine frills and long shapely sleeves.”

“I wanted to tell a story about what happens next; an intimate and ‘cosy toes’ post wedding shoot that shows an elated bride and groom at their most relaxed. They are enjoying being together, letting their hair down and loving their natural surroundings. My vision was that these two have escaped for a pre honeymoon weekend away at a secret location in the countryside after their daytime wedding and party. They arrive at ‘teatime’ and we follow their story from this point, spanning their jubilant arrival, some epic chilling, mouth watering feasting, swoonful dancing and a bit of fireside reflecting.”
