• Vintage Wedding Dresses & Unique Floral Accessory Ideas

    Prepare to be inspired…

    This stunning inspiration shoot is sure to send your heart all a flutter!

    It’s filled with delightfully creative florals in an array of brightly coloured hues, as well as frilly, lacy, full skirted, one-of-a-kind vinage wedding dresses from the ’50s and ’60s that Audrey Hepburn herself would approve of.

    The romantic hair and make up ~ all tumbling curls, chic up dos and berry lips, are sure to grace the pinboards of vintage chic brides everywhere and the photography by Love Life Studios is a dream come true.

    Karen of Huckleberry Karen Designs shares a little insight into the beautiful bouquets and floral accessories she created for the shoot:

    Most bouquets during the 50s and 60s era were cascading bouquets accented with a lot of green foliage.  To make it more modern we decided to use a variety of small, delicate flowers that mimic the look of foliage including rice flower, Queen Anne’s Lace, maiden hair fern , eucalyptus leaves with seeds, jasmine vines, dusty miller and ming fern. 

    The yellow bouquet was made with yellow ranunculus, white matsumoto flowers, fever few, rice flower, dusty miller and eucalyptus leaves with seed pods.

    The lavender bouquet was made with purple and lavender ranunculus, blue veronica, rice flower, ming fern and purple lilac accented with a large lace bow.

    We used a variety of floral accessories including a moss purse accented with a large coral charm peony and a matching hair piece, also made with a large coral charm peony nested in a bed of ming fern, dusty miller, maiden hair fern and rice flowers. 

    A headband was made with a small cluster of ranunculus with eucalyptus foliage that complemented the bride’s soft loose curls.

    The coral cascading bouquet was made with large coral peonies, yellow and peach ranunculus, Queen Anne’s lace, white football mum, dusty miller, lamb’s ear and jasmine vines.

    Oh so lovely.

    I adore the elegant yet fun and flirty feel to these vintage dresses and real flower accessories are my latest obsession! (Moss never looked so chic!)
