Were you around for our feature with Vintage Button Bridal Design the other day? It has to be one of my absolute favourite shoots of the year – inspiration for a sublime wedding from some amazing suppliers, with a beautiful, balletic twist. (love that word! Balletic!)
I feel equally spoiled and delighted to be sharing more from Vintage Button’s Clare Lloyd today, from the same photoshoot but with a completely different look and style. Of course we’re featuring Clare’s stunning handcrafted hairpieces and necklaces, but this time with a statement bouquet full of vibrant florals with a lush silk ribbon, and Old Hollywood inspired styling.
I adore the beautiful handmade antique bias cut lace dress by Sow’s Ear. For this part of the shoot Charlotte Tillyer styled Sian into a Hollywood starlet with soft, glowing make up and a modern braided take on a classic vintage inspired hairstyle to show off the low cut back of the dress. Sian’s hair was styled with several different accessories from delicate hair vines worn across the forehead to delicate beaded headpieces pinned around the side of the head.
Stationery by The Tiny Card Company looks perfectly pretty and timeless alongside sprigs of honesty – the suite is called Plum Blossom and is screen printed by hand. I think it’s wonderful.
I hope you enjoy this style inspiration feature and can take ideas from it for your own wedding day. Vintage certainly hasn’t gone away; we all love a little nostalgia and taking tips on timeless beauty from the golden age of Hollywood is our top styling prediction for 2018 weddings!
