A 50s inspired bridal shoot channelling rock n roll, neon, mirror balls and red lipstick

Today I am thrilled to share this 50s inspired bridal shoot channelling rock n roll, neon, mirror balls and red lipstick.

Images were captured by Isabelle Elliott Photography with the collaboration of a fabulous creative team.

Organiser Debbie of Bridal Reloved Wanstead says of the shoot…


Being based in east London I’m surrounded by super cool venues.

Gods Own Junk Yard is a fantastic venue, transporting you back to a whole different era and assaulting your senses with wall to wall neon and memorabilia.

I’d been there years before and it had always stuck with me, so to make my very first shoot go with a bang I went for it!

It lent itself incredibly well to the vintage feel of the dresses, which are all ex sample dresses for sale in my boutique, with designers including Bowen Dryden, David Fielden, Alan Hannah and Sassi Holford.

Getting the hair and makeup right was crucial too, so I chose an artist called Anna from Le Keux Essex who specialises in the 50s era.

Her big curls and winged eyeliner are second to none, and our Brides beauty was right on point.

To compliment the bridal look The Botanical Bunch created a stunning bouquet using dried and preserved stems.

To accessorise the inspiring wonderland that was the venue Fleur de Lace also provided beautiful props, and to complete the styling incredible cakes were designed and created by Herons Nest Cakes.

I was really nervous with this being my first shoot and wanted to showcase something a little alternative.

Everyone brought their A-Game and were absolutely fantastic working together so well to pull off something spectacular.
