I have been doing a serious happy dance since Magdalena of Oh So Chic Celebrations emailed me about this stylized shoot. It’s just gorgeous to the MAX!
A word from Oh So Chic Celebrations on the inspiration behind the shoot:
Get your glad rags on and join us Hon” the line is perfect how the era of Great Gatsby is described… glamorously dressed flappers and handsome daddy’s enjoying their drinks and dancing the night away.
I tried to infuse the photo shoot with the area both in clothing, make up, hair and vintage garments and car. As it is a high tea wedding I have picked the more nontraditional colour for art deco of teal and combined with ivory and gold. The colouring and styling is perfect for a small intimate wedding, bridal shower or day after soiree. It is light and airy that is perfect for any time of the year and works great as indoor or garden party. The Graydon Hall Manor was the perfect location for the backdrop of the shoot as it is just that and much more in its exquisite décor and perfectly landscaped gardens.
The food reflect the high tea feel with different kinds of tea’s, mini sandwiches, scones and fruit served beautifully on a vintage 3 tiered plates and chargers. The mismatched chine plates and tea cups give a whimsical and vintage feel that feels perfect for such a soiree. Small 4 people tables allow the guest to mingle and take in the décor and gardens.
The dessert table has a mixture of a 3 tired cake for more traditional feel with some little treats thrown in like cupcakes, cake pops, cookie and macaroons. A different approach to serving meringues is a meringue cake that presents the meringues in a more unique and fun way.
A perfect way to arrive or leave the party is a vintage top down Excalibur car. The feel of the 1920’s would not be right without the stylish dresses that were vintage inspired , and many of which are made from vintage shawls and lace. This marries beautifully with the hair accessories that are using both vintage and new materials in its creations.
