Modern Vintage Travel Shoot

While David of Modern Vintage Weddings jumped at the chance to work with expert makeup artist Gemma Sutton, we just as quickly jumped at the opportunity to share the exquisite result with you all. The pair brought on The Bijou Bride to help style this bridal-shoot-meets-wedding-inspiration, which brings Art Deco glam and travel allure to the wedding editorial world!

From the photographer, David of Modern Vintage Weddings: When I got the call from hair and make up artist Gemma Sutton with the idea of putting together a bridal inspiration photoshoot at Brookland’s Museum, near London, I jumped at the chance. Gemma Sutton’s work is sublime and the idea we came up with together was to photograph a story that was modern, but had vintage luxury elements we hoped might inspire brides to be who were considering a travel theme for their wedding.

Brookland’s Museum has a stationery Concorde, and you can get married on board! I am big fan of aeroplanes and travel a lot shooting destination weddings but never had the chance to fly in one so this was of course the next best thing. Our bride for the day, Sophie, was travelling somewhere fabulous to her honeymoon, in style. That was the idea, and The Bijou Bride, perfectly styled the look with golds and deep reds, to give a luxurious feel to the setting. I hope that Ruffled’s readers enjoy the images and the planning of their own big day.
