70s wedding inspiration with a bridal jumpsuit, bold prints and wildflowers.

I love all things 70's...The clothes, the music, the decor so I wanted to plan an inspirational shoot that really celebrated that era.

70s Wedding 

We wanted to incorporate the iconic 70’s colour, shapes and patterns into the styling, whilst keeping a modern look that would fit with a wedding of today. Atlas Studios is a huge, empty mill studio so we knew we needed something big for the backdrop. To soften the industrial feel, huge fabric backdrops were installed behind metal grid frames that were dressed with flowers. Keeping the flowers simple as to not clash with the floral material. The table continued with the colour palette, with glassware that was also iconically 70’s.


We wanted to keep the skin as natural as possible to allow Thea’s freckles to show through. Combining this look with a 70s trend eye and big hair to give this look a nod to the vibe we were going for but keeping it on-trend to show that a vintage look can work modern day. The top and trousers are a combo by Jesus Peiro, the separate pieces can easily be worn with other combinations. The top is sensational over a simple dress and gives brides the chance to commit to a look, but have another look in their back pocket!

The seventies brought us platform shoes, bell-bottoms, and some of the most loved music.

Atlas Studios is a 19th century Cotton Mill in Greater Manchester. Little has changed since its cotton spinning days so this was the perfect vast, raw space that we were looking for. The industrial backdrop created the perfect contrast to the 70 wedding vibes.

A fun fabric streamer backdrop was created for the cake styling area adding minimal accessories to allow the cake to really stand out. The cake design combined traditional and modern techniques to create a bold contemporary design but with the use of a 70’s colour palette. Topping it all off with dried flowers.

We've enjoyed reliving the iconic seventies decade through this 70s wedding inspiration. So much so we're not quite ready to leave the era yet. If you're not either, take a look at this 70s disco inspiration complete with glitter balls and roller skates.
