Modern Vintage Romantic Wedding Shoot – Chosen Wedding Fair

Posted by & filed under Aisle Style, Events, Vintage Inspired.

Modern Vintage Styled Romantic Inspired Wedding Shoot by Paola De Paola

Whilst we’re used to seeing lots of ‘vintage’ inspired wedding shoots, I love the fun fresh style to this shoot that puts a more modern spin on the whole styling. This shoot was the brain child of photographer Paola de Paola and Lauren of French Made with Curious Fair and Chosen Wedding stepping on board to bring things together further.

The project was a collaboration with talented friends and suppliers who are exhibitors at the upcoming Chosen Wedding Fair which will take place on Sunday 27th April at Islington Assembly Hall. 

“With the idea of showcasing a contemporary styled vintage wedding – the style of Chosen Wedding Fairs – we hope that the images show the unique, bespoke and fresh ideas that are on offer from these and more talented suppliers who are part of the Chosen family, as well as the fun, freedom and exhilaration that two people share on their wedding day.” 

The shoot that took place at alternative wedding venue, a Victorian warehouse Brixton East showcases a modern vintage romantic ‘secret wedding’ which offers a fresh approach just like the Chosen Wedding Fair aims to do. “We really wanted to show how contemporary styling could bring a different look or edge to a vintage styled wedding, offering an alternative fresh look to what is already lovely, but may have been done before. Finding Brixton East was a fantastic part of the journey in planning the shoot, the brickwork walls, wooden flooring and rustic feel set the perfect backdrop for the playful ‘secret wedding’ shoot bursting with colour, excitement and a lot of tiny details to bring the wow factor to life.”

Curious Fair who also style the Chosen Wedding Fair’s event interior design – set chose a very romantic pink and pastel colour palette interspersed with glitter and sequins giving it a contemporary Art Deco vibe – something that the venue for our April fair encapsulates at the Deco built Assembly Hall in Islington. They also created geometric shape decorations placed throughout the sequinned tablescape. They created a couple of Art Deco inspired headdresses made from upcycled jewellery.

French Made owner Lauren combines her French background and love for fantastic tasting and high quality food with her now London based eclectic, rustic and vintage inspired style, they will be exhibiting with Chosen Wedding Fair in October.

Paola is a London based photographer who’s style of work encapsulates Chosen Wedding Fair’s vision – bringing to life contemporary but with a vintage style twist, you van meet Paola on April 27th and October 19th.

The Chosen Wedding Fair was created in 2012 by a frustrated bride-to-be, and has steadily been growing as it aims for a fresh and fun way to discover and design your own unique personalised wedding. Chosen work very hard to handpick each exhibitor and they are fortunate enough to showcase excellent talent from bespoke designer makers and vintage aficionados in the surrounding area. 

Their upcoming London event is held at Islington Assembly Hall on Sunday April 27th and also later in the year on October 19th 2014. To find out more information or to book tickets visit their website: www.chosenwedding.com

Well, as the [ahem] popular 90s boy band Blue sang ‘One Love’ is all about one thing – Love – but in all different forms and combinations. In case you’ve been living under a rock lately, you’ll now be aware of the fabulous news that a few weeks ago, the law was passed [finally!!!] to enable same-sex couples to marry legally in England and Wales. Incredibly positive news for gay and lesbian couples throughout the country and to the wedding industry, so very timely to introduce you all to the One Love Wedding Show London…
