1920′s & 30′s {Styled Shoot} at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens – part 1

Posted on Mar 22nd 2012

A few weeks ago I joined wonderful group of wedding suppliers at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens for a 1920’s and 30’s inspired photoshoot organised by Suzie from Vintage Chic Wedding Fair.

(There are so many lovely images from this shoot, that I will be splitting it into a 3 part blog post 😉 )

The Botanical Gardens are absolutely fantastic and it very much influenced the style we adapted for this shoot. The internal decor in the Terrace Suite was lovely and the art deco shaped glass houses/domes in the gardens acted as a fantastic backdrop for the images.

Becky & Shelley from Luxe Bridal supplied us with the fabulous gowns and headpieces, and it brought the glamour and excitement of this special era to life in this shoot.

Karen from Darby & Joan brought all the stunning pieces to style the shoot, and from talking to her she has a treasure trove to suit all needs. We used the lovely crystal champagne glasses, silver teaware, old books, gorgeous lace and vintage table cloths and beautiful faux fur coats and wraps, to name only a few.

Pam from The Red Cake Company supplied us with 3 very different cakes to use for this shoot, and I was amazed by the intricate detail on these cakes.

The Make-up Artist was Cheryl Williams and the Hair Stylist was Emily Hall. Both these ladies did a fantastic job in putting the finishing touches to complete the 1920’s and 30’s transformation. They were also both on hand throughout the shoot to do touch-ups, swap head pieces and change looks if we needed it.

And lastly, a huge thanks to our two fabulous models on the day; Karen (from Darby & Joan) and Ulle.

So without further ado, here are the first set of images from this shoot that I want to share with you all…
