Retro Shabby Chic Bridal Inspiration

Set in a summer meadow, this retro inspired shoot has us seriously reconsidering the pros of a more traditional wedding set up. Of course, we aren't the first to rethink tradition. Drawing inspiration from Woodstock to Glastonbury, music and vintage lovers alike are ditching gala dinners and opulent decor in favour of food trucks and whimsical details. Inspired by retro shabby-chic vibes, photographer Claire Lachance has created a gorgeous boho dream and the perfect inspiration for the laid-back bride. Splashes of bold colour mixed with delicate vintage touches create a fun yet romantic atmosphere, perfect for an intimate gathering of family and friends.

A small and intimate wedding, with a nod to their English heritage, set in the most beautiful scenic location in New South West Australia. Beautiful bride Karen chose to wear an [...]

Once every so often, if geography permits, I have the pleasure of meeting a House of Elliot bride in person.
