Winter is the perfect time to play with light and metallic and glittering elements, and this stunning wedding photoshoot captures the magic of that most decadent of eras – the 1920s. Plays on light, shade and sparkle were key elements of the Art Deco period, but this was also a time of emancipation, as photographer and creative director Jacqulyn Hamilton points out.
“Women were becoming emancipated, gowns were becoming fitted, shorter and more glamorous and Coco Channel had encouraged Woman to throw away their corsets and embrace their natural forms. The female form was celebrated and glamourised. Females fought for their rights to vote, to be in control of their own bodies and to be beautiful, sexy and alluring – how ever they wanted to be – a legacy we have a lot to be thankful for today.”
