It was with a combination of luck, chance, dreams and hard work that this vintage inspired bridal shoot materialised. I have always wanted to shoot something very soft, pastel, romantic and feminine. I thought it was by chance that I stumbled upon Mrs Vintage‘s amazing vintage lace bridal gowns and head pieces. But I think it was actually destiny when, shortly after, Joyce of J.F. Floral Couture contacted me and asked if we could work together. Then I was absolutely thrilled to have the talented Kalo of Kalo Make Art on board to do our stationery, because I’m a huge fan of her beautiful illustrations (and cute personality!). Sandra of Simply Peachy then worked her magic and got Mini Chan Makeup and Ellermann Design, and Homemade HK involved. I’m sure you’ll all agree that she also styled this shoot to *peachy* perfection!
We wanted to capture the essence of Spring and romance so we worked in that direction in the styling and used vintage lace, peaches, roses and succulents for the perfect palette. I knew from the beginning that the softness and pastel tones of film would complement our vision perfectly, so I shot film only. Film rocks!
The lace details on the gown is simply stunning! That capelet is to-die-for! Make your enquires with Mrs Vintage soon, because a gem like this will be snapped up in no time!
I adore this statement head piece, lovingly hand made by Mrs Vintage herself.
Joyce of J.F. Floral Couture is truly an artist. I could shoot her work all day long.
These boutonnieres are so delicate and beautiful! And succulents are great for HK weddings that tend to run from way early in the morning to midnight!
The up-side to using peaches in the shoot was that it gave us the perfect soft yellow, pink and red tones, but the down-side is that Sandra and I had to eat peaches only for a week.

And now for some gorgeous details styled by Simply Peachy…
A great idea for your guests to leave messages instead of your traditional guestbook!
