A pretty fabulous afternoon…

Hello everyone, I am still getting the hang of this blogging lark, so please bear with me if my posts are few & far between!

I had a lovely afternoon yesterday in what I can only describe in my dream house, trying on dream vintage wedding dresses at the newly opened Unforgettable Vintage Bridal Gowns boutique, just outside Leamington Spa.

I had met the two creatives behind the brand, Sisters Rae & Hannah, at the Vintage Chic Wedding Fair in June & we hit if off straight away.  I was bursting to try on some of their beautiful dresses & finally plucked up the courage to spend half an hour in a world of my own, wafting up & down a sweeping staircase in their original vintage, breathtakingly beautiful, bridal gowns.  They took pity on my urge to dress up & invited me for a trying-on session in their boutique so that I may indulge my fantasies more & model for them at the upcoming Vintage Chic Wedding Fair at the Custard Factory, Birmingham on 30th October.  I thought about it for 3 seconds before agreeing!

They had a visit from Lucy Stendall a couple of weeks ago, who is a wonderfully talented wedding & portrait photographer “specialising in good old fashioned sweet love” – I love that quote from her website.  She too was blown away by the dresses, the venue & the warmth of the girls & suggested a photo shoot to showcase all those things…they have asked Darby & Joan to be involved with the project & we will be supplying all of the vintage china, linens, accessories & adding our own ideas & styling to the shoot & I CANNOT WAIT!  I was awake in the early hours this morning jotting down ideas & putting together mood boards, so I am beyond excited.

If any of you lovelies out there are looking for some vintage inspiration then I cannot recommend these two companies enough.  Their service, attention to detail & genuine love of what they do shines through & you will love what they do too.
