A Maggie Sottero Gown for a 1940’s and 1950’s Hollywood Glamour Inspired Wedding

There’s nothing like a burst of retro sunshine to pave the way to the weekend, and today brings the kind of joy that only   movie-star volume and killer red lips can. Combining radiant sunflowers, timeless glamour and one of those dresses that makes you gasp and thank your lucky stars that weddings are a thing, this celebration will obliterate any lingering Blue Monday lethargy.

Glamorous couple Alexandria, a retail store manager for a vintage brand, and Latif, a lecturer, fell in love in a whirlwind of nostalgic tendancies and old Hollywood glitz, so it was only fitting that these interests were celebrated as they became husband and wife on 16th June 2016. The High Rocks in Tunbridge Wells fit the bill of venue perfectly, with an incredible vintage steam train and wondrous backdrops for such a dazzlingly photogenic pair. I’ll let them get you up to speed:

“We both love the 1940’s and 50’s so there was no question about what kind of look we would go for. Red lips are my signature so I wasn’t going to be seen with anything less. We both love classic Hollywood glamour, Cary Grant, Errol Flynn, Ava Gardner, Lauren Bacall, this list goes on. My favourite colour is yellow, I originally wanted yellow bridesmaid dresses but not everyone was a fan so I settled on yellow flowers. Sunflowers are my favourites; you can’t help but smile just looking at them. We knew we wanted a non-religious venue and the cosy barn setting of the High Rocks had the perfect country, rustic backdrop we were looking for.”
