Modern wedding photographer Essex, Hertfordshire, Cambridge, Suffolk, UK

1920 Gatsby inspired bridal vintage styled shoot with an awesome team of Essex based wedding suppliers – coordinated by Fairweather Photography – Wedding Photography covering Essex and all of the UK

I love the 1920s period, for its art deco shapes and fashion glamour. My great aunt who lived till the great age of 103 and was an important part of my childhood, adolescence and young adult life, was born in 1899 and therefore lived the 1920s in her twenties. She was such an elegant lady – smelling of rose powder, even in her older days, I can only imagine she looked fabulous at that time.

Bridal Looks: There are so many bridal styles that I totally love (boho, ethereal, modern…), it would be almost impossible for me to choose just the one if I was to get married these days but I have come across some 1920 inspired bridal blogs and I particularly like this look for a bride. The make up is bold, strong and sexy, the hair is elegant, oozing femininity and glamour.

The Photoshoot: For this styled bridal shoot that I arranged in my studio, I wanted to involve a few local wedding suppliers whose products and services would suit this 1920s style I was after. Beverley from PS with Love makes beautiful delicate bridal headpieces & jewellery, she was happy to join us and supplied me with a range of intricate hair accessories that complimented beautifully the overall look. Michelle Lacey from Bumblebee bridal did a fab job styling the hair and make up for my model Alice. After setting up the studio accordingly, adding the stunning art deco backdrop made by Alex from Vintage Garden Weddings, I was excited to be putting it altogether once I decided on the look I wanted to achieve for my model. Bev and Michelle provided great assistance with the realisation of the vision.

I am leaving you now with the images from this fabulous collaboration hoping they will provide brides-to-be with some inspiration if this era is one they would love to incorporate and recreate on their special day x
