Fabulous Flappers - A Gatsby Inspired Shoot

It's a busy day in the workroom today, getting ready and designing flowers in the brightest, sunniest colours ever to grace Campbell's HQ.  Sheffield may be grey today, but I'm working with what can only be described as a cacophony of colour! Bliss!

Ahead of me posting pics of Rachel's flowers, I thought I'd share with you a few preview pics in the shape of a sneaky peek of our latest shoot.  A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to be called by the totally fabulous Hayley who owns Glory Days Vintage in York - a gorgeous boutique crammed full of the most beautiful vintage goodies, including vintage original bridal gowns.

Last year we worked together on my shoot Women of Steel which was featured on various blogs, including the wonderful Under the Vintage Veil and found it's way into lots of lovely magazines. Hayley asked if I'd be interested in getting involved with her and the amazingly talented Alison Barrett of Vintage Bridal Millinery to put together a 1920's inspired shoot ahead of the release of the eagerly awaited The Great Gatsby.  I jumped at the chance and dragged my lovely friend Jenn Edwards along as hair and make artist extraordinaire!

The shoot took place in the aptly named, Tiffany Room, of 1331 in York complete with original Art Deco features, which can be hired for rather special wedding ceremonies.  Here are a few of the early shots by Andy Gaines - which speak for themselves!  I'm beyond excited by what I've seen so far and, despite the mixed reviews, will definitely get to see the movie (in between weddings, of course!).

Hope you love the shots as much as I do ...















As I said ... so exciting!

If you're thinking 1920's flapper for your wedding, I hope this has given you a little more inspiration - there's lots, lots more to come.  Also, I've heaps of news and announcements coming soon on the blog, but 'til then - mix me a cocktail someone!
