I am so excited about today’s post because it showcases a whole host of Irish talent and has buckets of inspiration for the vintage bride… and there’s an abundance of vintage wedding dresses too.
Prepare to feast your eyes on gorgeous gowns, sumptuous china (we love you Pearl & Godiva!), and all manner of vintage-inspired accessories and details, shot in the beautiful surrounds of Borris House, Co. Carlow in the heart of our little emerald isle.
Wedding planner Linda McAllorum of Perfect Irish Weddings is the stylist who pulled all this together with a little help from her friends, notably photographer Johannes Roux. She explains the inspiration behind the shoot.
“Vintage is still a favourite right now in the fashion world, not only with bride’s but also their guests. They really want to get in on the action when dressing for a vintage wedding! With so many vintage fairs & shops popping up all over the country there is a fabulous choice of vintage clothes and accessories out there. So much so that it’s not only the bride that wants to dress in vintage for her big day! Guests want to get in there too, but how does one dress in vintage for a vintage wedding?”
“This was the inspiration behind this shoot and the reason Johannes and I got together to create this shoot. We decided that Borris House would be a stunning location for a vintage shoot, nestled within 650 aces of its own grounds and steeped in history, where could be better? We wanted to bring you stunning vintage outfits, styling not only accessories and jewellery, but hair & makeup giving a full overall vintage feel and look to this shoot. Most of these stunning outfits could be worn by guests or bridesmaid’s and we have a few beautiful vintage bridal dresses too!”
So if you are a vintage bride or a wedding guest with a penchant for the retro, there’s something here for you. Enjoy!
