Love and lace over the ages11:52 PM
It would be fair to say that for the last few weeks I've been thinking about weddings. Just a little bit :)
I went to a bridal fair a fortnight or so ago, and came away with a tonne (literally, I could barely lift it all!) of literature - magazines, books and the like - full of images of brides in huge foofy meringue dresses, bejewelled with crystals and sequins in funky patterns. Seems the vogue at the moment is bigger is better?! While those gowns may suit the fairy tale princess, to be honest none of them particularly catch my fancy.
They aren't really my style though, what I have in mind is much more sleek, elegant, classic... and, of course, a little bit vintage inspired :)
While looking through old family albums for a tafe project, I stumbled across these old prints. My grandparents, great grandparents and other relatives; all very real, and very beautifully dressed, on their own wedding days. These photos are such treasures; truly, there is a lot of inspiration to be had from my own lineage.
