Fabulous Forties

Set in the picturesque Sunshine Coast Hinterland venue of Flaxton Gardens, this shoot took its inspiration from featured model Miss Fifi La Rouge’s love of 1940s vintage.

Make up artist Tina Sparks’ stunning work showcases to brides that they can be bold with their wedding makeup and that deep rich autumn tones can lend themselves to this timeless era.

The use of an abundance of foliage among the floral arrangements is another nod to the 1940s with fresh flowers being hard to come by.  For the modern vintage bride this is also a more economical way to have a lush bridal bouquet.

Any vintage inspired wedding isn’t complete without an incredible original vintage vehicle in my opinion, and the black vintage citroen is a showstopper for wow worthy photography.
