Ladies! Lindsay Fleming, the extremely talented wedding dress designers are travelling to London town all the way from their Scottish hub for consultations with brides who are looking for the ‘twenties’ style wedding dress. Trust me, being a 1920’s addict, they’re dresses are to be lusted over with good reason…..plus you may have seen one of their dresses recently in ‘you and your wedding’, thats a snapshot at the top of the page.
so, notebooks to the ready, they’ll be at the ‘Dolphin House Apartments’, Chichester Street, Pimlico, London from the 26th to the 28th of March. These designers are hot to trot and are going to get booked up fast so get in contact with them asap.
Check out the details on their website here
You may remember me talking about them recently. I love their collection so much, so Rosie Parsons and I included these stunning dresses in a 1920’s Bridal shoot soon to appear in a wedding magazine, whoooo hooo! Once again a special thanks to Rosie Parsons (www.rosieparsons.com), and make-up by Sarah Brock (www.sarahbmakeup.co.uk). Here are a couple of pics from the shoot. Find the complete shoot here.
Its official launch isn’t until June this year but here’s a taster, I need to photograph all my hats and fascinators which is easier said that done at the minute (a good chunk are with a magazine which is another story!) so for now there’s some old pics on there . Excuses excuses! check out my very flapperesque website Clara Bows Millinery (make sure you click on the gramophone!) created by the wonderful Rosie & Lee. They’ve done an amazing job, thanks guys x
This website will be selling hats I make, giving details on how to order a bespoke hat from me and of course, details on my fascinator workshops (with lots of pictures showing them in progress). I’ve been selling hats now for well over a year, no promotion at all but still getting at least a couple of orders a month usually people who stumble on me via the web or who stop me in the street. I’ve been given my own millinery section in the Bristol Fashion Show later in the year. I’m excited, nervous and honoured all at once about that, I’m busily making my six key pieces……six pieces that I’ve wanted to make for years heavily influenced by the 1920’s, its a creative indulgence and I’ve had to up my skills to create these pieces where the practices needed to make them have almost died out. And two of these pieces wouldn’t be possible If it wasn’t for a lady with over 50 years in the business making hats for Royalty passing on her skills as I couldn’t find anyone else up to the job. All the feedback I’ve had from customers has been incredible but whilst I was growing Vintage Tea Sets I kept this in the background, and lets face it I’m very very busy with the china hire business! But with the support of my lovely Mum – together we make an amazing team – she blocks the hats for me, makes those lovely vinyl cakes stands that just keep flying off the shelves and helping get big orders together.
Well its a lovely way to start 2010! My 1920’s style wedding has been given a whopping 4 pages in Cosmopolitan Bride, you can read the full article here on my blog and its just hit the shelves. The fab photographers were Graham Morgan and Rosie Parsons.
On Monday and Tuesday earlier this week I (Vintage Tea Sets) styled this gorgeous 1920’s inspired Bridal Photo Shoot. Here’s a tiny snapshot of what the very talented photographer Rosie Parsons captured on the Tuesday, on the Monday we were at a secret location shhhhhh! More to come on that. She’s done an amazing job yet again and I cannot rate her wedding photography highly enough.
I’ll be blogging more on the detail shortly, the dresses, head pieces etc with a special thanks to all those suppliers, all to come. But initially I’d like to thank Floriture and Bella & Fifi for the beautiful flowers, Award Winning Make up Artist Sarah Brock and Becky Simpson from Hair by Becks @ Thairapy Bristol. Not to mention Combe House for letting us shoot there. Now enjoy these gorgeous images!
Just a short and sweet post on here as I’m busy packing for the honeymoon, for those of you who landed here from Vintage Tea Sets my Mum Penny will be holding the crockery fort so do not fear, just give her a tinkle on 0117 9532973.
Anyway, it was a blast and Rosie Parsons has just sent me some taster pics of my 1920’s style wedding with a lovely afternoon tea…..that girl does not waste time I tell you! Amazing, just got back from the venue and there were some waiting for me on Rock n Roll Bride
Ads settling his nerves with some bubbles
More tea vicar?
