Here is what you have all been waiting for: photos of Shell in her dress from her wedding! These are my photos from the day. It was definitely one of those times when I really wished I had a better camera – mine just doesn’t zoom well, won’t focus at different levels, and doesn’t play pretty tricks with the light, which really limits my fun. It was an absolutely lovely day: the rain stopped just in time, everyone was happy, the site was gorgeous and Shell looked amazing: the perfect vision of elf queen meets modern bride, just as we had hoped. And one with the bride and her dressmaker to finish it off: There you go! Would you be interested in a less ‘dress’, more ‘wedding story’ post with images from Sarah (in other words, images that are better than mine!)?
I’m currently working on a wedding dress, so I’m a little wedding mad this week (not that this is particularly unusual for me!). To inspire you, and me, here are some gorgeous images of bridal headdresses from 1912. The veils themselves might not have aged that well, but the models sure are timeless beauties. Sigh. Aren’t they gorgeous. The models. Still not sure about the headdresses.
