I adore a glamorous wedding theme, so when Lindsey Sergeant, of Decorate my Day, got in touch to tell me about a styled shoot that she had helped to coordinate, I couldn’t wait to feature it on Dotty!
Lindsey has an incredible creative talent, combined with a keen eye for detail, which makes her the perfect wedding and venue stylist. We were lucky enough to have Lindsey write our recent Expert Styling Column for Dotty Magazine Issue Four. If you missed the feature, you can read the magazine online here. The shoot collaboration saw Lindsey work alongside Dorset-based photographer Keith Bride, of Bridle Photography, who has captured some truly beautiful images.
The images have encapsulated the happy-go-lucky vibe of the shoot, which focused around a reception within the Old Vicarage wedding venue. Lindsey styled the room with a gold, ‘vintage glam’ theme, and utilised her extensive range of vintage crockery to create a beautiful table set up. The pom poms, accessories, props and décor were all provided by Decorate my Day; if you are looking for a wedding stylist in the Bournemouth or Dorset region, I would highly recommend that you drop Lindsey a line.
The make up looks were created by the talented Amazing Face and the models looked glowing, polished yet naturally beautiful. Amazing Face offer an extensive range of services, including make up for that all important day, “It is about you and your wedding party looking the most beautiful you have ever been. Your wedding photographs will last a lifetime along with the precious memories you will treasure; we will ensure that you will not only look, but feel your very best on this happy day. All that remains is for you to sit back and relax and let us work our magic.”
The make up was complimented by the hair styling of Absolutely Fabulous Salon in Bournemouth. The bride had a braided styled, with a gentle wave and a soft, sweeping fringe. The bridesmaid had her hair styled into a side ponytail, which worked well with her gold, embellished Jenny Packham dress.
I absolutely adore the bridal bouquet, which features a range of soft, pastel blooms, combined with gentle creams which works in synergy with the overall theme. The flowers were provided by Jennifer Poynter, who explains her approach to wedding floristry, “Years of professional experience have proved to me that no two events are ever the same; each deserves a fresh approach and bespoke design. I guarantee quality and service from the first consultation to the final flower, delivered with a big fat dose of excitement!”
The cute VW campervan was provided on the shoot by Dorset Dub Hire. “Lizzie is a pretty 1968 bay window tin top camper. Imported to the UK from California in 2011, she underwent a restoration in early 2013. She came from a loving family who used her for their summer trips around the UK. Boasting new paintwork in Lotus white, a calm off white/ivory, she complements any wedding colour scheme.”
I really do adore the overall look of this styled shoot, which feels luxurious yet laid back. The innovative tree table plan (also created by Lindsey) offers unique inspiration for quirky special touches that you could utilise at your own wedding. I’m also totally in love with the bride’s vintage lace dress, provided by the wonderful Isobel’s Bridal & Groom. The shoot brought together a fabulous creative team, and I’d like to extend a special thank you to everyone involved from Dotty HQ for letting us feature the images.
