Vintage and Festival Wedding Inspiration : Photoshoot Clovelly Court, Devon

To give you some truly beautiful wedding inspiration we recently held a photoshoot at Clovelly Court in Devon just prior to our Vintage Bride Wedding Fair and would love to share with you the two fabulous two looks we created!

Blue Fizz events offers a bespoke styling service across the whole of the South west, covering Devon, Cornwall and Somerset. Whether your big day will take place in a Rustic Barn, a Marquee or even a Castle Blue Fizz Events can help you bring to life your wedding ideas and help to style and theme your special event exactly the way you wish.

Take a look at our vintage and festival table styling plus vintage accessories that are available to hire. Picking the perfect accessories helped us to create bespoke looks in the two we have featured today….

To start the day our two models Hannah and Kirsty were whisked away to Nirvana Hair & Beauty Barnstaple for some pampering and gorgeous hair and make up. Transforming them both into beautiful visions of vintage and festival brides for the day.

The Vintage Look 

We went for effortless 1920s and 30s looks….  be swept away by glamorous long pillar empire line dresses, delicate flowers, trestle tables, lace accessories, beautiful bejewelled headpieces, handfuls of buttons, and pretty pearls, plus an abundance of cascading ribbons and oodles of bunting.

Think hair up, victory rolls and a bold make up pallet. Deep plumb lips and oodles of fluttering lashes for a Vintage Bridal look.

Our model Kirsty is wearing a beautiful dress by Days of Grace and gorgeous accessories including a Necklace by Hey Jules plus a Headpiece, brooch and quirky Button Bouquet by Vintage Button Bridal Designs.

Days of Grace house one-off bridal wear designs that are made from antique lace and vintage textiles and are perfect for country weddings, barefoot on the beach or a beautiful summer picnic.

Hey Jules was launched late in 2012. their studio in Bideford, Devon is now filled with gorgeous materials – sparkling crystals, shimmering pearls, delicate lace and other beautiful findings.

Vintage Button Bridal Design for beautiful, unique, vintage inspired headdresses, bridal accessories, jewellery and everlasting bouquets. Each item is hand made by Claire Lloyd using original vintage jewellery alongside precious metals, stones, pearls, Swarovski crystals and many more beautiful items.

The cake was lovingly created by Cherry Blossom Cakes & Cupcakes, who are a small independent cake company based in Exeter. All their Cakes, Cupcakes and Cookies are hand-crafted, exclusively designed and perfected to suit every taste.

The Festival look – 

We went for a beautiful 60s look with bold colourful flowers, delicate long lace floaty dresses, eclectic table decorations with bright paper lanterns overhead, shabby chic candle holders plus white wooden chairs and tables to set off the look.

For the Festival Bridal look think soft tumbling curls with plaits and pretty flowers intertwined, teamed with a neutral make up pallet with accents of gold and turquoise.

Our model Hannah is wearing another glamorous dress by Days of Grace, beautiful jewellery and headpiece by Kye Tew Jewellery whilst holding a festival flower bouquet by Offshore Blooms.

Kye Tew Jewellery is based in Exeter, they create bespoke Jewellery by incorporating and recycling vintage, antique and pre-loved items into unique, versatile designs, exclusive to each customer. Each item is unique and one off, Kye Tew’s headdresses are truly inspirational using the finest antique pieces to create ‘something old and new’.

Offshore blooms owner Kelly, studied fashion design and worked in display for many years. With this creative background she became interested in flowers – and the rest as they say is history. Kelly offers a bespoke, friendly and personal floristry service that is innovative and honest.

The Venue & Marquees… 

The beautiful village of Clovelly makes the most romantic venue for your wedding in North Devon. This enchanting village of timeless beauty offers a choice of picturesque settings for a wedding celebration.

Our marquee for the shoot was located on the lawn in front of Clovelly Court, this was the  perfect location for a coastal inspired wedding with beautiful sea views you really get that nautical vibe. Clovelly Court also lends itself as country house inspired wedding venue with its summer house, vast lawns and gardens to explore.
