Dig for Victory - 1940s Styled Wedding Shoot

Back in the summer I had the pleasure of taking part in a styled wedding shoot at the Dig For Victory Show, a 1940s themed festival in North Somerset.

The shoot was organised by Claire from Bramblewood Flowers, the theme for the flowers was red white and blue. Our model Lucinda was transformed into a glamorous 1940s bride by some super talented wedding suppliers. Her makeup was done by Natasha at Outside the Box Makeup, and her hair was styled by Clevedon Hair Company. Lucinda’s beautiful dress, jewellery, and shoes were from Heartfelt Vintage in Bristol.

We were extremely lucky with our groom, Harry, he provided his own uniform and Jeep! He’s in the army himself and takes part in the show every year. We got some fabulous shots of our bride and groom, and even managed to persuade a passing horse to get in on a few shots (OK, we persuaded his rider!). We then popped of to the tea tent for cake provided by The Ministry of Food, Hampshire.

It was the first styled shoot I’ve taken part in, and boy was it hard work! However I did get to look round the show in between shooting which was a real treat! It’s well worth a visit if you’re into vintage, I particularly liked the large collection of wartime vehicles. If you fancy popping to the show next summer you can find more details here: http://www.digforvictoryshow.com
