We have a lovely real wedding to show you from Betty Be Vintage. When Bobby-Lou Hulmes started planning her wedding to fiancé Adrian she knew she wanted everything from the hen party to her wedding dress to have a 1950’s flavour.
Picking up tips on easy victory rolls, Bettie Page fringes and Monroe’s lips as well as partaking in afternoon tea served on vintage china made for a wonderful get together for all her friends and also allowed Bobby-Lou to try out some hair and makeup styles for her wedding in advance. The photographs were taken by top vintage pin-up photographer Nick Beedles also offered a lovely memento of a day of pampering, circle skirts and laughter.
Bobby-Lou has always had a fascination for the looks of bygone eras as she explains when I was a little girl my dad had a picture book of 1940s screen sirens and I loved them they were covered in cellophane and I would carefully unwrap them. I was particularly drawn to the film noir pictures and have been attracted to that element of old school glamour ever since.
Determined that she wasn’t going to fall into the trap of spending thousands on her wedding Bobby-Lou set herself a modest budget for the entire event, convinced that with a little research and imagination she could have a stylish unique wedding, which wouldn’t break the bank.
For her accessories, her fiancé Adrian brought her pearl earrings, which her mum complimented with a gift of a pearl necklace. A Birdcage veil sourced from eBay was the perfect finishing touch adding that all-important film noir element.
Bobby-Lou’s stylish and beautiful approach continued with her choice of flowers. Classic Grand Prix roses for the bride, and a posy of pink and cream for the bridesmaid. The Groom wore a dark blue pinstripe suit and navy shirt and tie reflecting traditional union jack colours. The sun shone, and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house.
