If you are searching for vintage wedding inspiration, I defy you not to fall in love with this incredibly beautiful shoot, photographed by Ashley Noelle Edwards. When I asked Ashley what the concept was behind it, she said that she wanted to create something ‘with unique details such as glass bell jars, delicate flowers and many antique and vintage items.’ ‘I think this shoot will appeal to the eclectic bride who does not want to make her wedding design overly designed or themed.’ she explains. ‘The unique location provided a neutral backdrop for colourful flowers and details, as well as great photo opportunities for the effortlessly cool bride.’
When you are planning your wedding, it is important to remain true to yourself, and not be swayed into making choices that are not right for you or your partner. This is not always that easy. Even if you consider yourself fairly confident, it can be very easy to be persuaded to opt for a ‘certain bridal look’ because that is what is expected of you. If you consider yourself an eclectic bride, don’t feel that you have to conform to a ‘traditional’ big day. It is always important to allow yourself to be heard in every situation, but particularly when it comes to organising your big day.
‘Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect’
‘Always be a first rate version of yourself and not a second rate version of someone else.’
‘I am not eccentric. It’s just that I am more alive than most people. I am an unpopular electric eel set in a pond of catfish’
If you ever feel disheartened that your wedding planning is not going way, I would like you to take a look at these words and vintage wedding inspiration. It is not always easy being an individual, but it is fundamental that you remain true to yourself…
