I am beyond freakin obsessed with this wedding. From the moment I saw it, I just fell completely in love with it and couldn’t wait to share it with you all. (The gorg cat helps add to the beauty as well!)
Laura Tarr & Andrew Brown were married on May 05, 2013 in Bristol, England with a gorgeous and unique vintage theme.
Charlene Morton, the talented photographer who shot this wedding, share with us the amazing details.
I turn the blog over to Charlene….
The morning of the wedding began at Laura and Andrews Bristol home, where the bridal party preparations were well underway. Hair and make-up artists had set up camp in the kitchen with boxes of rollers, brushes pots and powders. As we arrived the bridesmaids had their hair set and were all in coloured hairnets which held their curled and pinned hair-dos in place. The bridesmaids dresses were all vintage, and had been painstakingly sourced by Laura. 4 long laced prom style dresses (some of which had been hand-dyed pastel tones) were all authentic vintage, absolutely beautiful and were as if they were made to suit each of the girls. The addition of handmade flower corsages tied the bridesmaids together seamlessly. Laura had also sourced matching coloured vintage costume jewellery for each of her bridesmaids which was presented as gifts in dainty handbags she had hand sewn!
Laura’s 1940’s vintage dress had been sourced from America, and was found in a dusty trunk which had not been opened since the wartime. A really incredible find! The dress had been shipped to the UK and altered to reduce the skirt size to a more A-line shape to modernise slightly and fit Laura perfectly. Delicate long lace arms and a high laced neck The preparations were a wholly relaxed morning of fun, smiles and friends.
