Post Wedding Photography 1950s Style
Welcome back! If you tuned in for episode one you’ll know that we’re re-staging Liz and Jon’s love story in the 1950s…
Last time we saw their first date, a very English, very civilised picnic on the front lawn of Liz’s family home. Now, just to add to the story, we were creating Liz and Jon’s characters as we went along. So at this point we’ve decided that Liz is a girl from a very well-to-do family, and Jon is a farm hand from up the road. She loves him, but he’s having to work hard to impress her father. (This overly intricate story concocted by me and world class make-up artist Melanie Meik who is responsible for all styling of this shoot!).
We catch up with Liz and Jon’s story a year on. Their relationship is beginning to blossom, and now he’s managed to borrow his rich uncle’s car to take Liz for a romantic drive into the countryside.
This is post wedding photography 1950s style! Again in this part of the shoot Liz wears a Vivien of Holloway halter neck pencil dress. Jon wears his own clothes.
The location again was Woolston House – a fabulous opulent five-star bed and breakfast in Oswestry, Shropshire.
Whether I was your photographer or not, if you’re interested in a post wedding experience (or just a couple shoot, or even just you) complete with styling, hair and make-up then please get in touch with me and let’s start planning something fun, different and personal!
Oh, and just for fun, we did this!
