Lucky Sixpence Bridal as a brand was conceived in 2015 to bring awesome bridal wear to amazing babes; affordable, fashion-forward true vintage choices with eco-friendly credentials. Excitingly, the brand evolved and Anna, the gal behind Sixpence, has moved on to new things, gorgeous travel and lifestyle things, but today we share this awesome shoot that came together through the girl gang power of social media because many of these pieces will be on sale at Fash Reboot in Canterbury on November 2nd. If you’re on a budget, or want to snag a preloved piece rather than a something new, this is for you. And prices are starting at £20. Hello, bargainousness.

The Story of the Shoot

“When Lucky Sixpence Bridal moved from London to Margate, the brand and town fell madly in love,” explains Anna. “With the promise of a hilarious day of dressing up, I sought amazing real girls to model through Facebook groups like The Coven. Much like when you went to Tammy Girl when growing up (showing my age here!), between the gang of girls we put together fun outfits using Lucky Sixpence Bridal dresses, headpieces and veils from McFayden Millinery and candy floss bouquets from Naughty Floss. The vibe of the day was fun and frivolity and a world away from a meticulously planned bridal shoot.”

“The incredible sugary pink Margate boutique Peony Vintage was used as the base for the bridal transformations – a bit like the shop in Mr Benn (again, showing my age!). The girls ranged from real brides-to-be – like Robyn and Sophie from Mummy Deer – to those just wanting a great opportunity to dress us and strike a pose, and I’m sure you’ll agree that they showed up and slayed! Badass make-up was done by local artist Sasha Jade Prebble. And if the model had rocked up in coloured tights and sparkly boots (Ana, we’re looking at you!), then this is how the outfit was built. Take a look – we think you might end up seriously considering swapping your boring cream heels for white converse and pink cat eye sunnies (from Peony Vintage), oh and a flower girl pup, of course!”

“We hope this shoot will inspire you to think beyond the constraints of the traditional bridal pressures (and press!) and explore what a celebratory outfit looks like to you, after all it’s your party and you’ll have a candy floss bouquet if you want to.”
