Today we are featuring some beautiful pictures, taken by Jo Richards Photography, from a vintage styled wedding shoot which took place at Pincents Manor in Calcot, Berkshire. Jo Richards, Andrea Fearon and Clare MacDonald of Digital Paper Studios styled the shoot, and inspired by current vintage trends, the shoot was created by utilising the skills and products of a group of wedding professionals from the Berkshire Wedding Community.
Included with the images are quotes from each of the suppliers regarding their involvement in the shoot…
“When the BWC decided upon a vintage theme for their collaboration I immediately thought of the typical 1940’s and 1950’s style of Rita Hayworth and Marilyn Monroe; nude coloured eyes with plenty of eyeliner, teamed with the signature red lips. As with all wedding make-up it is essential to get the base just right, but with vintage make-up the skin has to be flawless. A light dusting of coral blush gives colour and softly complements a bride’s natural features.” Emma Rivers of Emma Rivers Bridal Make-up
“My hair ideas for our vintage inspired wedding shoot started off the same way as I approach a wedding hair trial for a bride. It is vital the hairstyle complements the style of gown and that the hairstyle works with the bride’s choice of accessories. For the longer vintage lace gown and beautiful birdcage veil I felt a more elegant, polished, vintage creation would be the perfect finishing touch to the overall look. My creation was based on a low chignon which was beautifully detailed with pin curls and Marcel effect waves. Because of the stunning birdcage veil I decided to keep the hairstyle simple around the front and work most of the detail at the sides and back, creating a beautifully elegant look with vintage inspired detail.
