You may have noticed a lack of activity by me over the last couple of weeks, and whilst I wait for the wedding season to kick in, I’ve been busy behind the scenes, trying to secure a brighter future for Modern Vintage Weddings. I’m expanding the amount of advertising I currently do, from zero. I’ve been looking at having a banner on a wedding blog and am happy to say that soon you’ll see MVW as a sponsor on Under The Vintage Veil. It’s very exciting as I have been lucky enough to have my work feature on Under the Vintage Veil in the past and love Sara’s writing.
Something I’m really looking forward to is The Alternative Wedding Fair on September 16th at the Picadilly Institute, London. If you’re going make sure to say hello! You may have seen that I also photographed the amazing Donna Crain‘s collection of vintage inspired headpieces. The shoot was expertly styled by Sonia from Want That Wedding, featuring hair and make up by top bridal MUA Gemma Sutton, in the South of France at Chateau Les Carrasses. The shoot will be featured soon on the great wedding blog Love My Dress! very happy with that one!
Another styled shoot I worked on back in January was a Great Gatsby inspired wedding party at Nonsuch Mansion in Surrey. Styled magically by the Bijou Bride and featuring a host of top wedding suppliers including Gemma Sutton once more, the shoot will be appearing in print in the first edition of the brand new wedding magazine Unique Bride. It will be the first time an MVW shoot has been published and I’m very proud and happy for the team involved.
And so onto the most important part of my work- photographing couples in love and their wedding days. This year I’m up and down the country, and also on a plane for my first destination wedding in Italy. All my couples I can honestly say I’m looking forward to photographing and can’t wait to show you the results. I’m loving 2012 and hope you are too. Dave x
