Morning blog lovers, I'm starting today off with a little something different but no less super-stylish than our usual photoshoot offerings. These 'fresh out of Vogue magazine' style images come to you from David Whickham of Modern Vintage Weddings, who worked with Makeup Artist Gemma Sutton and Alex of Bijou Bride to create a shoot with a vintage aeronautical appeal and it simply oozes sophistication.

"The idea we came up with together was to photograph a story that was
modern, but had vintage luxury elements we hoped might inspire brides to
be who were considering a travel theme for their wedding. I am big fan
of aeroplanes and travel a lot shooting destination weddings but never
had the chance to fly on board Concorde so this was of course the next
Our bride for the day, Sophie, was travelling somewhere
fabulous to her honeymoon, in style. That was the idea, and The Bijou Bride, perfectly styled the look with golds and deep reds, to give a
luxurious feel to the setting."
Gorgeous gorgeous headpieces in this shoot – they are by The G&D Collection by Donna Crain whose designs I'm a huge fan of…
