China and Roses, Gladstone Pottery Museum

25th November 2013

There is so much prettiness going on in this bridal inspiration shoot with Sarah Willard Couture and Beauty Angels Hair & Make Up. Exploring the heritage of Stoke-on-Trent world famous for its pottery, China & Roses celebrates all that is handmade and vintage. The shoot took place at Gladstone Pottery Museum against the industrial backdrop of rustic brickworks and the giant bottle kilns of the former Gladstone China Works which have been preserved as the last complete Victorian Pottery factory in the country…The rustic setting of the old factory and mould rooms contrasted with 1920’s dresses, pretty roses in jars with a bit of gypsy styling made for a really interesting shoot!

Enjoy this celebration of our heritage and a trip back to bygone times…

Designer Vintage Bridal Show, Birmingham

12th & 13th October 2013

We exhibited at the gorgeous Designer Vintage Bridal Show last weekend! What an honour to be in a room full of creative people offering that something a little bit different. We met some lovely creative Bride & Grooms to be and can’t wait to see what next year brings. I couldn’t resist the opportunity to have a nose round and take some pics to share with you…it’s just a shame that I didn’t have time to get round to everyone and soak up a little bit more of vintage heaven. We will be announcing the WINNERS of our complimentary engagement session very soon and will also be revealing details of an exciting styled shoot with the amazing Sarah Willard Couture whose dresses are simply exquisite…

My stand…loved spending time putting it all together with my collection of vintage props gathered over the years…oh and I’ve decided archways were designed to be decorated with pretty photos and not just flowers!
