There is nothing more beautiful than a true love story. Sometimes the most touching love stories are not those made by Hollywood producers or written by renowned authors, but the real life, love stories, told by couples. Although the Great Gatsby has been popular for an Art Nouveau themed wedding, I decided to use a less know love story to show how couples can use their own story to create an intimate and personal wedding theme.
The Mackintosh love story
Inspired by the love story between Charles and Margaret, I created this styled session. Charles and Margaret came from vastly different backgrounds; Margret’s family could afford giving her a good education while Charles came from a very working class family.
Charles chose Margaret instead of marrying a girl that would have secured his place in wealthy Glasgow society where he would have been a made man. His social reputation was shattered but in Margaret he gained an inspirational partner. Together they created futuristic designs and their work proved to be one of the greatest partnership in art and design history. Their love also proved to be strong and they supported each other until the very end.
In a last letter to Margaret, Charles wrote: “You must remember that in all my architectural efforts you have been half if not three-quarters of them”. What a beautiful endless love story
Grace and elegance exudes from this Guirlande wedding dress by Cymbeline. The natural light accentuates the beautiful lines and delicate lace. The subtle makeup and vintage hair style becomes a beautiful partnership in softening the whole look. The black tailcoat suit and the white bow-tie takes the groom into the 1920's style with sophistication.
Thank you to a great team of suppliers for a wonderful styled session. All beautifully captured by Daria and Marek from Plenty to Declare Photography.
