A late edition to the suite of blog posts today my loves but I couldn't wait to share this set of images by photographers Angela Ward-Brown & Ina Halsor any longer with you, as they showcase a wonderful collection of new designs by milliner Rachel Drewer.
I adore that this shoot took inspiration from 'the bright young things' of the late 1920's and 1930's, those carefree 20-something London aristocrats and bohemians of the time who influenced writers and photographers of the time. If you haven't seen the film by the way, you should, it's a fascinating.
Taking inspiration from F. Scott Fitzgerald, Evelyn Waugh and Cecil Beaton's decadent depictions of the 1930's, ‘Bright Young Things’ is a fanciful bridal story, combining vintage and contemporary notes and the talents of a creative collective based in the South of the UK. Oh how I adore that first headpiece below!
This photoshoot was set in the surrounds of Hill Place, a beautiful Georgian villa deep in rural Hampshire – a perfect backdrop for this particular shoot. Milliner Rachel Drewer, fashion editor Sarah-Leigh Wade and photographer Angela Ward-Brown first began working together on fashion photo shoots in late 2011. To complete their most recent wistful bridal vision they joined forces with fellow photographer Ina Halsor and make-up artists Victoria Brown & Amy Cal…
Exquisite pieces from Rachel’s Radiance Bridal Collection formed a focal point of the story; each look was created with ideas for the fashion-forward bride with timeless appeal in mind…
What a stunning collection of headpieces, particularly for those brides who prefer to make a design statement on their wedding day.
I'd love to know if any of my readers fancy investing in one of these beautiful designs, or if you happen to already own one!
You can see more 1930's inspiration here by the way.
