Colour-Pop, Kitsch Christmas Bride!
What a festive treat we have for you today!
This colour pop, kitsch Christmas bridal shoot was styled by Kate Beavis from The National Vintage Wedding Fair and has some great vintage bridal and home inspiration for you.
Pink christmas tree, mini bauble style wedding cake and some beautiful vintage, 1960’s dresses….
The team behind the National Vintage Wedding Fair have styled a Christmas wedding shoot, featuring 1960s vintage column dresses, lots of colour and decorations and of course oodles of confetti everywhere!
How about carrying a vintage bauble bouquet? And styling the tables and yourself with pompoms! Maybe a cake covered in sugar baubles in candy pinks to match your kitsch Christmas tree? Whatever your style, you’ll agree that this wedding is colourful and festive – and so much more fun than a traditional deep red, winter wedding!
Any styling tips…
I really wanted to create a Christmas wedding shoot, as so often winter weddings are all deep red in colour with princess like dresses; so, I wanted mine to be bright and fun as Christmas should be. I love the 1960s and have previously styled a wedding shoot using original mini dresses so this time I wanted to focus on the style of dresses that most brides wore at the time – the column dress.
We had such lovely dresses to choose from but the best one for me had to be the Nottingham lace one with a hood. A wedding dress with a hood totally rocks!
I love my vintage decorations so was so pleased to see them in a bridal setting. The cake by Claire Owen was covered in mini balls of colour, mirroring the bauble look. This was then carried through to the amazing bouquets created by I Heart Buttons.
I love doing these styled shoots, and it is a great way to show brides how authentic vintage dresses look when worn. My fairs across the UK are always filled with hundreds of vintage gowns as well as vintage inspired ones – check out our website for details on a show near you next spring. www.vintageweddingfair.co.uk
