This has been the most exciting season of the BUSINESS year for Bespoke Vintage Castle
not only have we had the busiest two months of sales in our history
(The August-October wedding rush season)
we have also hit and passed the 400 mark for our etsy STORE sales in less than 3 years of BUSINESS.
in AUGUST & September we featured on Rock my Wedding, in Wedding Ideas Magazine, THE RUNWAY OF New York Fashion week,HOSTED AN INTERVIEW WITH CAROLINE ARTHUR COUTURE DESIGNER THAT FEATURED IN AND SO TO WED, WE decorated a wedding venue hosting over 200 guests and held SEVERAL bridal consultations at our home studio too. Whilst still meeting all the regular demands of our castle jewels.
...Additionally and rather EXCITINGLY this was the season where we handcrafted our new 2017 Bridal Utopia collection.
Now we can at last share it with you all!
October opens with a sense of calm. Its the season where summer halcyon days are getting shorter and the golden leaves start to fall. It is a quiet month in the wedding world so It seemed the perfect month to lead with our exclusive new Atelier collection; even though the preparation during August wedding season provided a perfect storm in the teacup of life. however to see the images proves it was all worth the hard work and commitment.
THE SHOOT CONCEPT IS THAT OF OCEAN WAVES IN DREAMY SEA GREEN THIS ULTIMATELY COMBINED WITH OLD GOLDS AND TRENDING ROSE QUARTZ.
THE PINK AND GOLD COLOURS ARE REALLY SOFT, ROMANTIC, SENSUAL, FEMININE AND DELICATE CONTRASTING BLUE FOR A FRESH, CRISP YET DREAMY FEEL TO THE LOOK.
WE PRESENT THE LAUNCH OF OUR UTOPIA COLLECTION THE FIRST OF BESPOKE VINTAGE CASTLES BRIDAL ATELIER
ONCE WE HAD THE PIECES MADE WE WERE SO LUCKY TO COMBINED OUR PRETTIES WITH AN EXCITING COLLABORATION WITH INDUSTRY CREATIVES.
ADDITIONALLY THIS YEAR WE DEBUT OUR VINTAGE WEDDING DRESS COLLECTION AND WE REALLY WANTED TO SHOW OFF SOME OF OUR 80 YEAR OLD EXQUISITE GOWNS ALONG WITH JAZZMINE ALEXANDRA DESIGNS; OUR BRAND NEW WEDDING PIECES MADE BY JAZZMINE MY SISTER.
THE VINTAGE DRESSES WE FEATURED DATE CIRCA 1930S-40S THIS STYLE PERFECTLY COMBINED WITH CHIC POODLE UP-DOS & FINGER WAVES BY NIAMH OF GYPSY ROSE SALON WORKED WELL WITH THE TALENTED AND AUTHENTIC MAKEUP ARTISTRY BY JULIA JECKELL.
WE WORKED WITH THE TALENTED JANE BEADNELL; FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHER WHO CAPTURED ALL THE STUNNING VISUALS EACH THAT CONVEYED THE MOOD OF FRESH AWAKENING AND FREEING RELEASE. EXUDING A SENSE OF FREEDOM AND EUPHORIA FOR THE FREE SPIRITED MINDSET IN EVERY BRIDE. CREATING EMPOWERMENT AND GRACE THROUGH EACH IMAGE TAKEN.
THE SETTING; A SPACIOUS, AIRY OPEN FIELD. A BLANK CANVAS PROVIDED BY MOTHER NATURE FOR US TO PAINT FREELY A KALEIDOSCOPE OF ALL WITHIN OUR MINDS-EYE AND MAKING THE STUNNING FRESH BLOOMS CRAFTED BY JILL AT SANCTUARY FLOWERS THE MAIN SOURCE OF COLOUR.
IN THE SHOOT WE WANTED TO INSERT TEXTURE: SOPHIE FROM POM POM BLOSSOM CRAFTED HAND DYED SILK RIBBON IN MATCHING COLOURS WHICH FLOWED GRACIOUSLY FROM THE STEMS OF THE FLOWERS IN THE BREEZE..
COMPLIMENTED BY HINTS OF GLASS, PORCELAIN, AND FLOWERS. TRENDING VELVET AND GRACIOUSLY OVERFLOWING WITH TULLE THAT SHOWS LIGHT BREATH OF SPIRIT AND AIR. THEMES OF OLD HOLLYWOOD GLAMOUR, CLASS, REGALIA AND FORMALITY ARE EVIDENT.
THESE ARE ESSENTIAL TRENDS THAT ARE RESONATING WITH BRIDES AFTER THE DRIVING FORCE OF VOGUE'S CENTENARY ISSUE FEATURED THE DUCHESS KATE. ROYALTY HAS BEEN RESTORED TO BRITISH FASHION AND WEDDING CULTURE. WE WANT EACH OF OUR CASTLE JEWELS (BRIDES) TO FEEL TREASURED AS ROYALTY THEMSELVES AND WANTED TO ENCAPSULATE THAT EMOTION WITH EACH IMAGE.
