Whimsical wedding with a Rockabilly Riot!!

Whimsical wedding with a Rockabilly Riot!!

The idea behind my shoot was to have strong 1950s theme with a soft whimsical tea party with an ecclectic Rockabilly mix.

Showcasing the style of poise and precision from the era.

With a hint of the fun loving Rockabilly side too at the end of the decade mixing that retro with modern to make it accessible for the out-doorsy quirky off-beat Bride.

Bridesmaids in Ivory Tulle skirts conveying the fairytale-esque look that is Traditional in weddings and the Bride in a floral print tea dress; The Bride is no longer in white.

I decided to Host a shoot themed around the 1950s Era focusing on the latter part of the period just before the 1960s,.

Where Great Britain for the first time had disposable income and Hollywood glamour took centre stage in weddings world meaning they were full of beauty accessories and prettiness.

Icons of the Time were Elizabeth Taylor, Maryln Monroe, Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly.

 (the fact that we had 4 models was perfect as each can represent metaphorically one of these icons in their style.

The 1950s by itself has been done before it wasn't anything new to wedding-ville , However I wanted to change it slightly to balance the repetitive approach of this well photographed era.

 We incorporated a soft woodsy magical tea party theme to it. This enabled a sense of fun, adding a Bridal softness, and also gives us an opportunity to create a "ideal" in the imagery for the shoot, then brilliantly opposed it with our tattooed Bride.

This is a metaphoric representation of the next generation that followed the 50s- the 1960s

We rebelled as they did in that era; After all why keep with the cliché' of tradition?

We decided on the Bridesmaids being in white/ ivory with the Bride in a floral print tea dress.

Throughout the experience we kept in mind two points:

1. 1950s chic poise and modelling

2.Rockabilly fun!!!

Needless to say the collaboration was a success and we go in to print in July!!
