Portobello Bride Real Wedding - A Vintage Wedding

Today's wedding highlights the importance of choosing a wedding photographer that understands your style, and will capture the story of your wedding perfectly.  Caspix artistic documentary style of photography was the absolute perfect choice for this beautiful winter wedding. 

Not only did the couple get it right in their choice of photographer, but in every other detail too. Their theme had a real vintage glamour to it. I have lovingly named this the Pearl Harbour Wedding, as every detail, from the setting to the brides attire reminds me of the glamour, honour and pride of a time gone by. 
The gorgeous, unique setting of RAAF Base Glenbrook is the epitome of vintage elegance and the perfect choice as the groom is a RAAF Pilot. RAAF Base Glenbrook was built as a private residence in the blue mountains back in the 1930's later becoming an elegant hotel. The exterior remains unaltered and exudes the feeling of luxury from a bygone era.  
I love the simple elegance of the table settings, the table place cards, the hint of black from the taper candles compliment the brides wedding attire. No detail has been left out.  
This is why I love  Caspix so much. Casandra explains "you can feel the history in each room, so the details played a prominent part in the captures". To me the images of the venue details adds to the wedding story, and I can only imagine how happy the couple must be with their wedding album. 
These image made me teary. The bride getting ready with her family, her hand lovingly placed on her sister as she fixes her hair and the proud onlookers as she makes the final touches before heading off to be married. These little gestures are what I love being captured in wedding photos. 
I love this photo of the flower girl watching everyone arrive, waiting for the wedding to begin. The bride holding her bouquet, the warmth captured, the light, the details, it could have been captured 50 years ago. 
After the intimate ceremony, the Guard of Honour is a moving tribute to the grooms role. 
Caspix signature polaroid and holga sessions are the perfect accompaniment for their wedding portraits.
The couple included paper planes with instructions on each table and vintage postcards for guests to write messages on for the newly weds. Such simple things that would have a lasting  impact on guests. Love it!
The vintage RAAF wedding invitations- they say it all. The amount of effort and consideration that went into this otherwise simple elegant wedding is outstanding. 

I hope you enjoyed this wedding as much as I have, as usuaCaspix has outdone herself yet again.
