It’s been a little while since I shared a real Bijou bride so I am most grateful to Lizzie of Shoot It Weddings for sending me these pretty pics.  Today’s bride Zoe combined her love of English gardens and all things retro to create a beautiful Vintage Floral Wedding.

Zoe chose a 50’s style Wedding dress from Lou Lou Bridal for her nuptials teamed with the obligatory big petticoat.

When it came to hair and make-up the retro vibe continued with big backcombed rolls and slicks of eyeliner.

Note the hint of pale green eyeshadow and pale pink lips, more on that later.

Having found their quintessentially English venue, Halstead House in Leicestershire, Zoe and Tom set about decking it out to match their Vintage Floral Wedding theme.  Using muted greens and pinks with floral patterns kept the feel consistent throughout the ceremony, Wedding breakfast and reception.

Zoe wore a pink and green wrist corsage instead of carrying a traditional bouquet.  I love the 50’s prom look this wrist corsage conjures up.

Congratulations Zoe and Tom, I hope your married life is nothing but sunny days.
