If you are looking for inspiration for a festival or carnival styled wedding, then you will get an abundance of inspiration from these incredible pictures by Lorraine Claire Photography…
“The theme for this styled shoot was a Vintage Carnival, which came from one of the mood boards I created when I was planning my wedding.
“Lisa, a wedding planner and stylist from Carmela Weddings, specialises in planning quirky and retro weddings, so was perfect to help with the shoot, and I contacted Sophia Wyatt, the fabulous hair and make-up artist, as I knew she would know exactly what look to create for our models. We then got in touch with some wonderful suppliers who all shared our enthusiasm and passion to help our vision come to life.
“The shoot took place at the gorgeous Gate Street Barn, near Guildford, Surrey. We used lots of colour, with big bold accessories and bright flowers, to portray a fun carnival feel with a British tea party twist.
“Our models were styled with a late 50’s/early 60’s edge, with hair in various takes of the beehive, paired with statement pieces, and beautiful lace and tulle vintage bridal gowns.
“We included all the fun of the fair, bringing along various treats, including a gorgeous candy cart, cake, games and props, which gave the shoot an enjoyable festival vibe.
“I wanted to create bright, yet softly lit, beautifully tone imagery, producing a timeless look. The aim was to show brides you can have a wedding full of personality and colour which is also stylish and elegant.”
