Some of the things I love and love to feature on this blog: strong women, Yorkshire, beautiful things, unique design and vintage influences.
So this wedding inspiration shoot had just to be here. It has all of the above and then some. Even its title, Women of Steel, packs a punch.
Set in Sheffield, it is the brainchild of city florist Tracey Campbell who wanted to contrast the industrial heritage of the steel city with the feminine glamour of the 1940s and early 1950s.
Keeping to the industrial theme, Tracey added a quirky touch to the flowers by including knives, forks and spoons and even wrapped blooms around jewellery fashioned from antique spoons.
Floral arrangements were styled in antique tankards and tumbled from a 1950s tea set. Tracey is passionate about championing British-grown flowers so all were sourced in the UK.
The dresses, including a full-length 1940s white satin gown and classic peach prom-look dress with floral brocade, were from Glory Days Vintage in York. The models were given victory rolls, loose curls and statement red lips by hair and make-up artist Victoria Farr.
Do you love it like I do?
