1930s Nautical Wedding Inspiration

Today I’m sharing a lovely 1930s inspiration shoot. This was the brainchild of Fly Away Bride. It all came together beautifully. And how could it not with such fab vendors? On hand was Farrell & Chase, Pearl & Godiva, Cloudberry Bakery, Ellie Balfe, Michelle O’Halloran, Covet, and our two fabulous models Aisling Finnegan and Eider Leite. For the relaunch of Fly Away Bride they wanted to share some inspiration for a travel themed wedding. So where better than on board a boat? We shot on the MV Cill Airne , and yes it is available for private functions if anyone’s interested. The decor and attire was inspired by the 1930s with beautiful gowns from Covet and a vintage suit from Harlequinn in Dublin. Little travel theme touches like compasses, miniature ships, and telescopes were added to create the theme.

I love working on inspiration shoots. Mostly because I get to inspire future brides. But also because it’s a day out of the lonely office having a bit of banter with good friends. However a big thank you goes to Aga of White Tea for lending a hand. I woke up that morning with a small tummy bug and was feeling seriously unwell by midday. Thankfully with a bit of food and caring people I managed to carry on for the second half. And boy am I glad I didn’t miss it, so many pretty things to photograph!

I’m also delighted that the shoot was featured in the Irish Times Magazine!

And of course no shoot would be complete without the fab work of Best Day Productions!
