Vintage Affair – Styled Shoot

Let’s be honest, most of us start planning our dream wedding way before we get engaged – probably around 15 years or so before then actually! So how exciting would it be to have the chance at a practice run before you have the pressure of doing it for real? That is what Becca Hall and her partner Chris did in September last year at a styled shoot set in the gorgeous village of Burton in Cumbria. These lovely images were sent to us by Julia and Jill from Todd & Moore Photography


We started in the morning with a couple of shots which have us the chance to get to know Becca and Chris and for them to become more relaxed in front of the camera. This is a brilliant way for couples to assess a photographer before making the commitment  of a booking and gives us valuable experience of how they will be on the big day.


Neither Becca nor Chris are models, so they were naturally a little nervous to start with –just as any of us would be. So we had a wander down the lane and pretty soon they were sitting happily in a muddy wheat field as if it was the most natural thing in the world.


After lunch it was onto the wedding shoot. The wedding had a vintage feel and Becca looked stunning in a gorgeous fifties style dress customised by the stylist and a sweet little birdcage veil. Becca borrowed her grandmother’s engagement ring (a beautiful  sapphire) in keeping with the vintage theme. Chris looked sharp in a coordinating sharp suit, skinny tie and braces. We were able to take some photos in the local church and Chris actually looked like a nervous groom as he stood waiting for Becca. All in all it was a lot of fun and they made a gorgeous bride and groom.
