Beautiful Blue Vintage Dior Wedding Inspiration from The Love Studio
Ooh today’s wedding inspiration shoot from The Love Studio and Presh Floral really is something special! Delightfully decadent, in the prettiest palette of dusky blue and abounding in romantic details, lovelies the chic bridal styling and gorgeous details are guaranteed to sweep you off your feet and leave you daydreaming of Paris!.
According to Tanya at Presh Floral the inspiration behind this heavenly shoot stemmed from two sources. The first being the team’s desire to shoot in the stunning new Colette Grand Cafe that recently opened in their home town of Toronto – and with its gorgeous French-chic decor and romantic atmosphere, it is easy to see why it captured their hearts and imaginations!
And their second source of inspiration came after stumbling upon the incredible vintage Christian Dior New Look dress you see before you. Tanya says “We realized that the dress was not only a showstopper, but a piece of fashion history. In 1947, Dior brought femininity back to fashion after a period of uninspired war-time styles with his first collection dubbed the “New Look”. Dior, who inherited an intense love of flowers from his gardener mother, wanted his New Look style to make women feel like flowers. He famously once said, “after women, flowers are the most lovely thing God has given the world”. But since the dress was not the traditional white, we opted to take an alternative approach of using the dress as the “something blue”.” And it couldn’t have worked more perfectly!
To complete their uniquely vintage bridal look, the team added some glamour with fabulous era-appropriate gloves, a statement headpiece, vintage heels and refashioned vintage jewellery from Hattitude Jewels. The lush floral design by Presh Floral added romance to the setting by including delicate white blooms like ranunculus, lisianthus, hellebores, delphinium, phlox, and garden roses, whilst the stunning stationary provided by Post Calligraphy and dainty cakes from Steffie’s Sweets & Treats added some sweet sophistication. All together the whole shoot wows with Parisian elegance and busy capturing every beautiful detail was The Love Studio, so sit back and soak up the magic…..
A huge thank-you to Tanya and the team for imagining and bringing to life such fabulous inspiration.
