For any engaged couple, the photography, is truly one of the few things to remind you after you have said your vows just how glorious and wonderful your wedding day was.

Memories fade over time, ask any married couple who jumped the broom 8 or 10 years prior.

They remember: the cake, their dress (of course) and how manic it was to organise Bridesmaids but the little details that seemed so super important at the time, are quite forgotten.

Here at Bespoke Vintage Castle we are all about the little details.

I always stress to our castle Jewels that photography is up there with your extremely important venue choice. That way you cant forget everything as your photographer was so darn good you have memories to last a lifetime!

So Here are my personal top 5 wedding shots that I believe are a must have for your big day.

Print them on Coasters, a couple of mugs or a huge living room canvas, but you wont dismiss these in a hurry!

 

 

1. Before the dress Goes on....

This is your perfect time to capture that boudoir shot, no distractions just calm... be a little flirtatious it for his eyes only.

2. Don't forget the rings!

Now I deeply regret not having this done at the time.   Try and capture your rings. Your engagement ring and bands, after all; they symbolise your eternal never ending love for one another so enjoy the romance in your shots..

3. Share the love....

This image has a two part (we had to improvise a little) take a beautiful shot with your Mother or Nanna.

I did with my Nanna and it is one of my absolute favourite treasures. Its beautifully sentimental and wonderfully emotional. I am so lucky to have her still with me, and now I have her with me forever and ever in my photography.

Sadly not everyone still has their immediate family, we recently had a bride who had lost both her parents and grandparents leading up to her big day. This was a truly devastating and emotional experience for our Castle Jewell, she did however take comfort in, metaphorically having her mum with her.

This image following is a perfect way to keep your loved ones close to heart even when they have departed. I think spiritually and emotionally its a beautiful thing. I am so glad she went ahead with the wedding, comforted knowing her loved ones were looking down upon her, and were still there with her on her special day.

Every good Photographer is sensitive to that and will honour this shot for you.

4. Have a little fun....

Weddings can be stressful, busy and exciting times sometimes in the run-around of the process we forget to just enjoy one another again. Do not forget the reason why you said "yes" in the first place.

On your big day, have a little fun in your shots, definitely do something crazy and daring!

5.Lastly do that luxe shot!

This the one where its just you, your dress and the most delicious surroundings. Find your fave spot, at the venue; your best flower power corner in the tepee and let the surroundings work their magic.  No people, no distractions just you and your groom.

This has to be the shot you can submit to print in a magazine!

(now that's a Mug shot worth keeping)

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.
