Looking for a roaring wedding ?! Then today’s roaring twenties wedding style shoot from France is a glorious way to brighten up your Saturday.
Hélène Ripoll, accessories and stationery designer, and Angélique Stock, stylist/designer for Andralys, both love when brides want to give a little vintage style to their wedding. So out came the sketchbooks and the duo decided to plan a vintage twenties styled wedding shoot… not only featuring images, but a world of music, art and glamour.
As Angélique was drawing on her sketchbook, Hélène could see the accessories which would match the dress, pearls would be essential but adorned onto the dress, giving a kind of Charleston style.

The chosen dress is made out of silk and embroidered with hundreds of Swarovski pearls. Rows of pearls have been used to recreate a sleeve effect on one side, mixing vintage style with modern techniques. The pearl sleeve is an accessory in itself and the outfit needed no necklace, so Hélène designed a vintage headband to compliment the outfit. On top of that a lovely stylist from Limoges, Création Mohair, offered to create a fur-like bolero to complete the outfit.
With the help of scriptwriter Séverine Poulain a simply fabulous venue was found, L’Hôtel Bouctot-Vagniez … a beautiful Art Nouveau “townhouse” from the early 10s-20s (Amiens – Picardy). A sumptuous cocktail room with artifacts from the 20s’, a stunning stairway leading to a corridor with an amazing ceiling decoration are some of the surprises you may find there!
Photographer Christophe Flers caught the spirit of this day with his very specific journalistic style. Through his pictures, Christophe makes you feel you are part of the day, you can hear the music playing and the grab that glass of champagne the waiter is holding for you.
Hélène says of the day: “Many people also contributed to this project and it would not have been possible without a collaborative team effort and love of the twenties period style. There was such a cheerful atmosphere on the shoot and at the end of the day everybody started dancing with the Charleston girls to “Honey Rag”!!!
That has set my mood for the day and I feel like donning a flapper dress, pouring a martini and dancing the night away. Be sure to check out the Parisian suppliers below who helped to create this fabulous shoot.
