1930s Glam Bridal Inspiration |  by Mariel Hannah Photography |  www.smittenmagazine.com

Thoughts from Mandy Forlenza Sticos on her inspiration behind this shoot.

This editorial shoot started as I gathered a few photos of my favorite classic film actress, Carole Lombard. I was immediately inspired to create a 1930s classic but modern bride. Photographer, Mariel Hannah and I searched for a “bride-to-be” with classic Hollywood glamour and found that and more in Emma from Major Models. Katelyn McGinn + Jha Villanueva were a beauty team straight out of the 1930s with properly set hair turned faux bob and a deep aubergine lip with a hint of the infamous Clara Bow, from the 20s. 501 Union provided a dramatic backdrop complete with a classic car and Jackie of Hello Darlington created a drama filled mini bouquet + shoulder corsage reminiscent of the time.

All together, these photos are an ode to a simple time-gone-by.  A bride putting on stockings, unpinning her hair and posing for bridal portraits were all so simple yet glamorous back then. For many of the props I was inspired by vintage photographs and re-created similar set ups; the candelabra, the wire chair configuration and balloon toss to name a few. The 1930s were a classic time and it provides endless inspiration for even the most modern bride.
