A very special Midland Shoot (Vintage weddings at the Midland Hotel)

It's been a year since Carole & I styled our first shoot for the launch of our business last summer, and we were lucky enough to be invited to style at the iconic art deco Midland Hotel in Morecambe. An amazing and prestigious hotel, we were a bit nervous about undertaking the task, but I'm sure you'll agree these pictures look gorgeous! We've done several further shoots then, all with my talented husband Johnny Bean, but we still have such a fondness for this shoot and we thought it was time to share this with you again.

They show our initial collection of china hire, linen, bunting, centrepieces and props. Itsy Bitsy Vintage have built this collection considerably since then and we have a truly exquisite and pretty selection of tableware and decorative items suitable for any wedding, birthday, anniversary and baby shower celebration. Our attention to detail is evident too in our styling, and we always try to incorporate vintage details that are characteristic of your venue and celebration.

What else do I get for my money?
All packages include a client meeting so that you can view our range of china and props (tea and refreshments provided!) and then a second at your venue if you choose to use our styling services. We give free styling advice and will aim to customise your order to meet any personal requests. Itsy Bitsy Vintage have a wide range of inspiration galleries that we share with our clients to help you build a visual collage of your day. We can also refer you to a wide range of local businesses who can support your celebration and make your day extra special.

Our deliveries are free within the first 5 miles on all orders over £75 and we provide a full washing up service too!

We hope these pictures give you a taste of what we can provide and create. I think we successfully achieved a great shoot for our vintage china hire and our partners. We also paid homage to the 1930's Midland Hotel with some art deco styling.

Johnny at beanphoto has done a fantastic job with the pictures, as I knew he would! Please book now for your 2013 celebrations...
