I am so excited to bring you todays post brought to you by Robert Marriott Photography. Working part time in my other job I get to meet some really lovely people when I get nattering away to customers. Rob, his beautiful fiance Claire and I got chatting about all things vintage and in particular weddings (theirs is only a matter of weeks away now!). Both being bloggers we stayed in touch and decided to collaborate together in the future.
Rob got in touch saying he had a vintage wedding dress dating back to the 1950's and asked if I would be up for a creative beach-front shoot. I was jumping at the chance simply at the words...'Vintage', 'wedding dress' and 'beach front'- Hell yes I'm there! I am massively into my vintage clothing and it's no secret that the 1950's in particular is my favourite style.
The weather that day was incredible, we were extremely lucky but by the coast it was naturally very very windy which meant bad times for my hair! The location was at the Reculver Towers, somewhere I had never been to before in Kent and as you can see, the most picturesque location.
This is the original box that the dress and head garland came in which is very rare these days to see. This company no longer exists but it's so funny how wedding dresses today are very much still influenced by the vintage era. I would say this lace and button detailing on Kate Middleton's (now immortal) Wedding dress was reminiscent of vintage dresses such as this.
A massive Thank you to Robert! for such a fun shoot and the opportunity to model this incredible dress, I am so pleased with the results. You can 'like' him here on Facebook.
