1930’s Inspired Bridal Fashion – Three Designers – Six Looks

The 1930’s was both an alluring and glamorous era of fashion that generally sits quietly behind the roaring 20’s. However, changes in this era were prominent; we saw the slimline silhouette start to deplete, and a soft a-line silhouette start to form to celebrate the curves of the modern day woman. The 30’s is certainly not to be overlooked when it comes to bridal fashion and the inspiration which it has provided. This beautiful 1930’s inspired bridal shoot shows us four very different 1930’s inspired looks with modern day designer dresses, whether your wanting to have a softer look on your wedding day or full on authentic vintage.

We catch up with Braid and Bloom the inspirational team behind this inspirational shoot…

Braid and Bloom are the creative team behind the planning, styling, hair, makeup and photography. We are a team of 4 and thrive on creating beautiful styled shoots.”

“We collaborated with 3 amazing dress designers; La Poesie, Francis Bridal and Kate Edmondson Bridal Couture. Each gown had a modern twist on classic elegance that fitted perfectly with the shoot. To top them off, we contacted Agnes Hart who creates the most beautiful vintage inspired veils. The veils were the starting point of the 1930’s inspiration and we were over the moon when we opened the boxes of these incredibly crafted pieces.”

“Our finishing touches were the beautifully classic jewellery pieces by Harrington Brookshaw Jewellers in Guildford including pearls, opals and aquamarine set in 18 carat gold.”

“We knew we needed an oversized bouquet in keeping with the style of the era. We contacted Tangerine & Green Florists who created the most swoon worthy burgundy and blush bouquet. We always notice that oversized bouquets look crazily large until you ‘put them on a bride’, then they look absolutely perfect!”

“The suits were supplied by The Vintage Hire Suit Company who stock fantastic suits for those that want something a little retro and offbeat for their wedding. We loved the tweed suits and waistcoats that they selected for the shoot.”

“The inspiration for Maria’s Hair was of course vintage but still something that would work for the bride of today in giving her a timeless, elegant up style and accessorising with the beautiful Agnes Hart hair pieces.”

“Candra first set the hair by rolling around a Hair tong and pinning the curls into place so that when she unpinned the hair we had a beautiful vintage wave going through it. She then pinned into a low rolled bun leaving that lovely wave the show through the hair and the front she pinned to accentuate the wave.”

“Cindy took hair inspiration from the Agnes Hart Veils and decided to work around them to maximise their impact, with a centre parted hairline braid, to suit the jewelled forehead veil for the modern take on this era.”

“One of our favourite looks was the vintage hat on Maria, it seemed to work so well with the hair styling and instantly added that classic elegance that we wanted from the shoot”

“For our gents, a few GHD curls that were then styled with a little gelwax was all they needed for a classic, polished look.”

“Kerry created our makeup looks. Vintage styling called for soft, subtle, slightly smudgy make-up. Our palette was antiqued peach, steely greys and washed rose. Giving each bride a unique look tailored to their colouring.  Favourite products from the day were Mac paintpots, Sephora eyeshadows and NARS foundations.”

“We hope this styled shoot is inspiring to those who wish to re-create the chic glamour from the era.”
