Here is a little background behind the shoot, provide by the talented Cat Hepple…
“This shoot was at Denton Hall in Ilkley North Yorkshire. I wanted to create a really vintage vibe to a bridal shoot and knew this stunning house was the perfect location. I then searched for a bridal dress supplier.
Hayley Hoyle runs the Harrogate Wedding Lounge and is dedicated to the highest standards. I met Hayley, heard about her business and knew she was perfect. We discussed creating a vintage styled shoot, to show off some of her new collections and to show Brides how this hugely popular theme can easily be achieved.
I also wanted to show Brides that even on a cold, rather grey day you can still create some stunning wedding imagery, which has flair and style. I’m VERY fashion led in my shoots and vintage is HUGE not just for Brides but in fashion too right now. The shoot was vintage through and through, some images show just a nod towards styles of old, but all have a feel of a by gone age in one way or another.
We used models for this shoot, purely to ensure Hayley had images she can use commercially, but I really worked hard to make sure none of the images required specialised posing or expert modelling skills-I don’t want brides to look at it and feel they could never look like this-they CAN. it was vital that these looks could be recreated with a Bride on her wedding day. I worked quickly to show these styles can be done in the short time span of a wedding day.
I always ask my bride and grooms for 2 lots of around 20 minutes during the wedding day, to ensure we get some fabulous images of them. So I had that in mind as I shot this. It had to be do-able on a wedding day.”
So as you can see my dilemma…there was lots of Love Vintage Tea Love for this shoot…so I am going to share the rest of the shoot with you…Enjoy!
Lots of Love Vintage Tea Love xoxo
