Retro 50s wedding style

When planning a wedding, one of the first decisions comes down to Style. How would you like your wedding to be? What ‘vibe’ are you after and what style of dress will you wear?

With so many brides and grooms opting for styles reflective of times gone by we thought we would work with some Sunshine Coast Wedding Industry legends and create a whimsical, yet elegant, retro styled shoot. What made this concept even more cool, was the fact that we ran a competition and had a real couple as our models. Clea and Ben were our ‘winners’ and they were absolutly wonderful.

Clea’s Hair and Makeup was expertly applied by Kerrie Mace (Hair4Brides) and Natalie Hunter Makeup Artistry. Classic styling of a 50s bride is elegant with vibrant lips. This ‘pop’ of colour was extended throughout the styling to reflect in Clea’s shoes and our handsome Groom’s attire.
