The Vintage Table is a small vintage china hire company here in Perth. Alison has been collecting all things vintage, including china, for 30 years and now hires china and vintage styling pieces for weddings and bridal showers etc.
The idea for this shoot was inspired by all things vintage with a unique twist. A ‘Midnight Tea’, a vintage high tea on the dark side for rock n rollers, two lovers at a pre-wedding gathering of kindred souls. The shoot was done in Alison’s own house and was styled by Alison using her own vintage furniture, china, clothing and props. Everything in these images is vintage, nothing is new. It was important to us to show that vintage does not have to be beige, dull and rather dreary, and that in fact being green and ‘eco friendly’ can be incredibly glamorous. Vintage style weddings and photo shoots often consist mostly of pastel colours and floral designs, however for this shoot Alison wanted it to be Johnny Depp and Kate Moss, all Rock n Roll and a bad attitude without a pink flower in sight.
Our gorgeous models are not professionals but young friends of ours. Male model Mikey wore his own vintage garments, and Amanda wore an original pink 1950s vintage party dress with a velvet bodice and chiffon skirt, the dress being part of Alison’s collection. Every item in each image is vintage or up cycled down to Mikey’s vintage Fender guitar (which he really does play, it isn’t simply a prop).
