A French Vineyard Wedding.
Last summer spent a glorious sunny day shooting the most dreamy styled wedding shoot, which was featured on Love My Dress HERE. For anyone looking for the ultimate French Vineyard wedding, I put together this shoot to inspire you, to help you visualise what type of magic you can create. I teamed up with a number of amazing suppliers to create these dreamy set of Bridgette Bardot inspired images that feature a mix of vintage and modern bridal fashion, at the Stanlake Wine Estate in Berkshire. You are correct, you read me right, this is NOT in the South of France, when I first saw the vineyard when I was looking for a location for the shoot, I fell in love with it, as it is like a little slice of Provence in the UK.
Getting married at a Vineyard in the South of France is a dream come true, and weddings in Provence are top on the list of those looking for a truly romantic destination wedding venue. But if you just can’t get to France, I can’t recommend the Stanlake Wine Vineyard enough. It’s absolutely gorgeous, and if you would like to visit this amazing place to see if it fits your wedding plans, do get in touch with Damiana at Distinct Events who will look after your enquiry for the venue.
The creative team and I wanted to bring to life a sense of modern vintage meets fine art and romantic. From that effortlessly gathered 60’s inspired up do to the pretty pale lips and winged eye liner, the bell sleeves of that incredible vintage gown and the bare foot bride running through the fields – I’m hoping these images have something to offer and inspire my free spirited readers looking for something bohemian in style.
I love the hair styles inspired by the classic chignon style of the 60’s, and very expertly coiffed by wedding hair and makeup expert, Pin Ups Bridal Hair.
The shoot features both original vintage and vintage inspired dresses from wedding dress suppliers, Katya Katya Shehurina, Hope & Harlequin and Rock The Frock as well as original vintage gowns by Unique Bride.
If your planning on getting married in the South of France, I live in the region and work with couples from all over the world getting married here, I charge no extra for travel and accommodation! I also still head back to the UK for weddings at Stanlake Wine Estate and will be taking bookings there in August and September 2018!
As usual I simply hope that these images offer a touch of inspiration to all of you planning a wedding. Pin away to your hearts content lovely ladies, and gentlemen!
Lots of Love, Claire M xoxo
