1920s Period Drama with the Manchester Vintage Collective was last modified: September 19th, 2014 by Annabel

Manchester is fast
becoming a hotbed of fabulous wedding suppliers of all things vintage. As the
fashion for vintage weddings or adding a ‘homemade’ feel to proceedings
continues to grow 'The Manchester Vintage Collective' came together to harness
and show off some of the talent which has developed across the city recently, with this shoot that pays homage to the 1920's.

The Collective, a group
of small and growing businesses passionate about vintage style, came together
initially a year ago when Amedea from Foley Photography contacted Laura, owner
of the Airyfairy Cake Boutique. The first venture was a vintage photoshoot for
a newly engaged couple, run as a competition with great success (see the winners here on Love My Dress). Since then the
Collective has grown to incorporate a small range of specialist vintage
businesses.

1920s Period Drama with the Manchester Vintage Collective (Weddings )

With everybody in this
team in love with the drama of 1920's, the shoot was styled on a 1920s vintage theme.
Using feathers and striking blue green tones we took the bold colour scheme and
pearls and worked it through the photographs from the flowers to the styling
and the cakes and cake pops….

It might look a little crazy now, but back in the 1920s, it was very common to have huge oversized sprawling bouquets, like this one, with lots of beautiful folliage. I love how the creative team have paid homage to this with this modern-day interpretation…

What a beautiful pair of silk bridal gloves.  If bridal gloves and delicate silk and lace accessories are your thing, watch out for a special feature next week on some of the finest bridal gloves available to purchase from the UK today, by a hugely talented designer.

Brides keen to explore fashion and style influence from the 1920's will be interested to know that the focus when it came to makeup was on looking young and beautiful in the 1920's, but despite this, makeup was worn quite heavily and tended to focus on a more dramatic look.  Eyebrows
were fashioned into long thin arches and ‘cupid’s bow’ lips were defined
with deep reds, browns and plum coloured rouge.  Kohl eye liner was
used to emphasise the eyes…
