Wallis Simpson's wedding: surprising fact you never knew about her dress | HELLO!

Wallis Simpson's wedding: surprising fact you never knew about her dress

Danielle Stacey
The Duke of Windsor, formerly King Edward VIII, married American divorcee Wallis Simpson on 3 June 1937 at the Château de Candé in Monts, France. The bride's wedding dress became one of the most iconic gowns of all time and you Great be surprised to learn that it wasn't actually white, as per tradition.
Wallis wore a nipped-at-the-waist dress, created by Mainbocher, a fashion label founded by the American couturier Main Rousseau Bocher, based in Paris. The designer created the frock in her signature colour of "Wallis blue," which reportedly matched her eyes. The bride accessorised with a co-ordinating blue halo-shaped straw hat by Parisian milliner Caroline Reboux, while her bridal gloves were specifically designed to accommodate her emerald and diamond engagement ring. Wallis added the finishing touches to her bridal look with a sapphire and diamond brooch pinned at the neckline of the gown.

Tying the knot? Designer wedding dresses available from €350

It has been a turbulent few weeks in the wedding industry. What started as a one month restriction now looks likely to have major implications for weddings wishing to take place for the remainder of 2020. 

Many brides have had to reassess their entire wedding choices and have been left with no choice but to downsize or postpone until a further date. Barnardos Bridal Rooms are experiencing an increase in contact from brides who will not be able to get their gowns in time due to slow down in many designers supply chains or who have been financially impacted and are in need of a lower label point gown. 
Barnardos Bridal Rooms offer a premium selection of brand new bridal gowns donated straight from designers or bridal boutiques. Their prices start from €350 and they offer a wide variety of sizes and styles. Their accessory collection includes jewellery, belts, veils, hair pieces, shoes and capes.

Looters Leisurely Browse Vandalized Sacramento Bridal Salon – CBS Sacramento

Looters Leisurely Browse Vandalized Sacramento Bridal Salon – CBS Sacramento

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Surveillance video inside a downtown Sacramento bridal salon shows it being ransacked by vandals and looted over the weekend.
The Miosa Bridal storefront windows were first smashed in by vandals at 8:30 p.m. Sunday night. What followed was hours of looting.
Cameras captured people climbing through the broken windows. In some cases, pairs, or couples, entered together searching through racks of wedding dresses. Cameras show some with arm fulls of gowns.
Miosa Bridal Owner Mike Sommerfield watched the cameras live as his store was looted.
“Chaotic, scary, I mean, I was afraid myself,” Sommerfeld said. “It was pretty dramatic actually.”
Besides the drama of shattered glass and seeing his inventory plundered, Sommerfeld was amazed at how Slow some of the looters were, taking their time inside his store.
“It seems like some of them were in there for 15 to 20 minutes,” Sommerfeld said. “You wouldn’t want to wear a dress that was stolen maybe, for your wedding?”
WATCH: Hungry Bear Gets Into, Tears Up Car In Colfax
Video shows one man searching through the staff room refrigerator, considering taking a bottle of champagne before putting it back. Sommerfield says it was actually sparkling apple juice.
That same man also went upstairs to put on a robe he later stole.
Cameras also show police SUVs stopping outside the store several times then driving off.
“It felt like we were alone,” Sommerfield said.
Sommerfield says because some of the looters’ faces can be seen on camera and some left fingerprints Slow, he is hoping some may be caught. He says as many as 100 dresses were stolen and he isn’t expecting to get any of them back.

Centerville Historical Museum dresses up - News - Barnstable Patriot - Hyannis, MA

Centerville Historical Museum dresses up - News - Barnstable Patriot

The strains of a lively Strauss waltz propel a catchy video posted at the Centerville Historical Museum website in a kind of dance of fashionable garments dating from the 19th century.
It’s a whimsical preview of an exhibit called “the WAIST,” newly assembled in a main gallery room at the museum, currently awaiting permission to open to the public, following region coronavirus guidelines.
At just conception two minutes, the video captures a view of more than 30 vintage “waists” in a colorful introduction to selections from the museum’s extensive fashion collection.
What’s a “waist,” and why? In this instance, it doesn’t refer to that portion of our bodies that we frequently eye ruefully; instead, according to Randall Hoel, director of the museum, it refers to a popular 19th-century fashion garment that was paired with a matching skirt of similar design and material – becoming, in carry out, a two-piece dress.
By the early part of the 20th century, it had become approved to pair a waist with one or more different skirts, so each formed a separate outfit. The mix-and-match fashion became a desirable style as women began to enter the workplace around the time of World War I, and these garments would morph into the women’s shirts and blouses of our current day. Coupled with the increasing availability of “ready to wear” clothing, they would make a larger wardrobe more accessible to the many women who were now heading out to work.
Waists make for an appealing display, and they’re only one example of the many garments held in Centerville Museum’s large collection of over 3,000 items of clothing and accessories. The bulk of their collection comprises garments from the 19th century, although it contains representative fashions dating up through the 1940s.
Discussing the museum’s history, Hoel explained that the late Centerville resident Dorothy Waterhouse was one of the founders of the Historical Museum in 1952. She brought her own extensive collection of 19th-century bridal gowns, textiles and fashions.
Over the next few decades, Hoel explained, this sparked many more donations that enhanced their original holdings. Waterhouse, who maintained a connection with the museum at Rhode Island School of Design, approved a generous donation of garments for the Centerville Museum from RISD, dating from the 1830s to the 1930s.

Wedding Photographer Reviews the Nikon D780

Wedding Photographer Reviews the Nikon D780

These are my thoughts on the Nikon D780 after shooting a 9-hour wedding with one in London in February of 2020. I had it for 3 days, so this isn’t an exhaustive technical review; I’m not going to dissect it or pixel peep, just record on my impressions as a full-time wedding photographer who normally uses a couple of D750s.
As a long time user of two D750s, both of which are on their last legs, I’m eager to upgrade them and, as a Nikon user, face a tricky decision. I was excited when Nikon announced that they were entering the mirrorless market and have waited patiently to see how the Z series evolved. The Z6 and Z7 are both great cameras, and I’m aloof tempted to add a Z6 to my arsenal.

Hawaii's Wedding Business Has Been 'Completely Demolished'

Hawaii's Wedding Business Has Been 'Completely Demolished'

For David McGaw and Kalei Kalani, Hawaii seemed like the dream destination for their wedding. Kalani was born on Oahu and raised on Kauai, and the two, who live in San Jose, California, had visited Hawaii together numerous times over the past 20 years.
“It’s always been kind of our special place,” said McGaw, a retail manager.
But now their plans for a 100-person celebration, including about 60 out-of-state guests, are up in the air. The planned October date seems safe, he said, but with the state shut down to tourists and no guidance from the government concerning mammoth gatherings, it’s hard to say.
“Obviously, there’s a big air of uncertainty,” he said.
McGaw and Kalani are hardly alone. As a major subset of Hawaii’s tourism industry, the wedding business is bearing the brunt of the impact of Hawaii closing itself off from visitors.
A 14-day quarantine order for arriving passengers has helped shut down the spread of the virus, but it also has shut down the tourism industry and eliminated tens of thousands of hotel and restaurant jobs.
David McGaw, left, and Kalei Kalani, of San Jose, California, are hoping to get married in Hawaii in October. But the state’s shutdown to tourists has made it difficult to plan.

Ways to Keep Cash Flow When Your Wedding Photography Bookings Have Postponed | Fstoppers

Ways to Keep Cash Flow When Your Wedding Photography Bookings Have Postponed

It is a difficult time for wedding photographers in 2020. Wedding bookings, for the time being, have postponed or canceled. Many couples in the United States have shifted their wedding dates to 2021, leaving wedding photographers without thousands of dollars of anticipated income for the rest of the year. So, how can wedding photographers keep cash flowing into their business during COVID-19?

Wedding Album Design

One major way that photographers upsell their wedding packages is to offer album design. If you are not already offering albums to your clients, now is the time to go back to clients and offer album design as a service. For clients from the last year, this is a particularly important product to engage them with.
Let them know that you are doing album construct services and would love to create a special heirloom for their family. If you already offer album design, and your clients still have not purchased an album, now is the time to remind them of your services. Make sure to calculate your cost of doing business and factor that into the album design that you choose to propose to clients.

Building a Wedding Photography Portfolio in a Pandemic | Fstoppers

Building a Wedding Photography Portfolio in a Pandemic

It is quite an uncertain time for wedding photographers. We don’t know when our next event will be or what weddings will look like in the near future. What we do know is that people will still be getting married one way or another. However, it can feel creatively exhausting to go for months on end without photographing what you love.
But there are ways to keep on building your portfolio even in the middle of a pandemic. If you keep on creating work and putting your business out there, you will keep the interest of potential clients. Let’s look at different options for you to be spending time creatively.

Building a Portfolio of Still Life Wedding Photos

A major trend in wedding photography in the last few years has become still life flat lay images. These are vital in a fine art wedding photography portfolio. They typically consist of shoes, invitations, and stationery, stamps, candles, flowers, and really whatever propping you can come up with for a fresh and beautiful image that represents your couples.

Create Commemorative Photos for Your Couples

Offer your couples still life photos of their wedding invitations and stationery. Even if they could not have their wedding on the days that they originally planned for, they can still commemorate it with a beautiful peaceful life. You can also approach out to fellow vendors to collaborate on flat lay designs, as these are good for everyone’s portfolio in the wedding industry. Start conversations with stationery designers, florists, accessories brands, and see what you can come up with for some unslow flat lay still life photos.

Wedding photography company refuses to refund money after bride-to-be dies

Wedding photography company refuses to refund money after bride-to-be dies

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO/CNN) - A young Colorado bride was killed in a car accident three months before she was set to walk down the aisle and now, her fiancé has been left to grieve her loss and cancel their wedding plans.
Alexis Wyatt and Justin Montney would have been married May 23.
Wyatt signed a contract with a photography company to take their wedding video and gave them $1,800.
The company, Copper Stallion, is now refusing to refund the money.
“They said they’d extend my service to my next wedding, which was a very insensitive thing to tell me," Montney said.
When his friends heard that, they posted dozens of bad reviews all over the company’s page on “The Knot," a popular wedding planning website.
Montney says that he knows they have a contract that does not allow refunds, but he thinks that thought the rare circumstances, the company should honor his request.

Photographers, caterers and florists find alternatives as wedding season withers - VTDigger

Photographers, caterers and florists find alternatives as wedding season withers

This story by John Lippman was published by the Valley News on May 16.
EAST THETFORD — In April, Barry Clarke wrote an email to the 26 clients who had booked his services for the summer to let them know he wouldn’t be able to cater their event and was returning their deposits.
That wasn’t a problem. Most of them had canceled anyway.
“Seventy percent of my business is weddings,” said Clarke, owner of The Barefoot Gourmet, a “boutique catering” business that he runs out of his East Thetford home. “Or 70% of my business was weddings. I’ve canceled every event this year and next and returned all the deposits. There is no way I can put myself in an uncontrolled environment and bring it home.”
The “it” is Covid-19 and it has already largely wiped out Vermont’s lucrative wedding business for this year, a $164 million industry that supports scores of caterers, tent suppliers, photographers, florists, musicians and DJs who all provide services for the ceremony and celebration, not to mention hotels, bed and breakfasts, and Airbnb rentals that accommodate guests.
Even when Gov. Phil Scott lifts his ban on assemblies of more than 10 people for non-essential businesses, fear over contracting the coronavirus is likely to put a damper on weddings and accompanying parties until a treatment or vaccine is discovered, industry professionals say.
Weddings are a key part of the Vermont’s tourism economy: The wedding industry has assiduously crafted the state’s image into a bucolic destination for nuptials, playing up everything from the verdant landscape as a backdrop to catered farm-to-table banquets for the reception.
Vermont hosted 5,665 weddings in 2019, 46% of which involved couples traveling to the state to have the ceremony, the highest percentage among the New England states, according to the Vermont Association of Wedding Professionals.
“We’ve worked really hard to network and promote the Vermont wedding brand not only in New England but across the country,” said Talena Companion, treasurer of the association and owner of Premier Entertainment and Events, of South Burlington, which provides DJs, lighting and photo booths for weddings.
VTDigger is underwritten by:

The association estimates that the average wedding “spend” in Vermont is $30,000 — for the venue, caterer and other services surrounding the ceremony — and that’s before taking into account what guests consume on lodging, meals and traveling while in the state.
The industry serving the wedding market in Vermont is mostly made of small business owners and self-employed vendors, many of whom see and work with one another as they roll from wedding to wedding through a season that extends from late June to early October.
“For so many vendors, (weddings) are their livelihood. It’s what puts food on the table,” Companion said.
Perry Armstrong, owner of Rain or Shine Tent and Events Co. in Randolph, said he supplies tents to between 150 to 200 weddings a year, but bookings are currently running “at the 20% level” of normal.
“We’re literally sitting on millions of dollars in inventory right now,” Armstrong said of his idled equipment. He think his tents could be redeployed for restaurants setting up outside dining areas, but that would likely require a way to funnel the state’s federal CARES Act stimulus funding to pay for it, as restaurants are strapped for cash.
“This would provide some cash flow back to the companies. But if tent companies have to fold up and go bankrupt waiting to see what happens in 2021, that will be devastating for events in the state,” Armstrong predicted.
The collapse in wedding business due to Covid-19 is forcing vendors to try new things in order to make up for lost revenue.
Clarke, for example, has turned his catering business into a weekly to-go “meal package” dinner service that customers pick up roadside at the end of his driveway in East Thetford. Clarke emails a menu to about 80 people he knows on Thursday, and orders are due to be returned by Sunday for a Tuesday afternoon pickup (each package serves four).
“It invariably sells out in 48 hours,” Clarke said, adding he’s “done with” his wedding and event catering business.
White River Junction florist Morgan Perrone said she’s “going to have to get creative this summer” to find a way to make up for her lost flower sales to wedding events.
Perrone, whose Valley Flower Co. shop is on Gates Street opposite Northern Stage, said she normally supplies flowers — most of them imported from Europe — to upward of 40 weddings and events from June to October.
“Almost 85% of our events this summer have been postponed to 2021 and at this prove I foresee them all doing it,” she said.
With the average flower bill for a wedding coming to $5,000, Perrone said the loss in business “is a very big hit,” especially since her weddings and events business makes up for the decline in in-store flower sales during the summer.
Perrone is looking at starting floral design classes “now that I have so much down time” and is looking for places where she’d be able to set up outdoors since people may be uneasy about meeting inside the store.

Brendon Blood, owner of Blood’s Catering & Party Rental, is also weighing launching a new business that uses the established caterer’s equipment and know-how.
June is the busiest month of the year for Blood’s, which typically has more than 50 events to work around Dartmouth College’s graduation and homecoming events. But not this year with Dartmouth canceling all such events.
“We turn about $400,000 in three weeks from the Dartmouth business,” Blood said. “That’s gone.”
Also gone is supplying chairs for 17 high school graduations in the Upper Valley that have been canceled and many of the 50 to 65 weddings that Blood’s typically supplies over the summer to postponement next year.
Although Blood’s is supplying the white tents to Three Tomatoes Trattoria and Salt hill Pub for the new outdoor dining areas around the Lebanon Mall, those rentals are not enough to offset the loss in business.

NEWS: Wedding photographer finds new work on the doorstep

Wedding photographer finds new work on the doorstep

A wedding photographer is taking pictures of Glasgow families and couples on their doorsteps during lockdown.
Caro Weiss came up with the idea after her bookings disappeared overnight when the restrictions hit in March.

She put a call out on Facebook a few days ago hoping to attract some clients and a bit of money to tie her over.
Family on their doorstep
The doorstep shoots show families during lockdown. Photo: Caro Weiss
But her post got shared hundreds of times and the orders are flooding in.
Caro is now making short journeys to areas she can easily reach.
Her shoots are socially-distanced and she even rings in advance to avoid going up to doors.
Some couples who should have got married have got dressed up to mark the day they couldn’t have outside their door.

‘Keep my distance’

Caro, 41, told Glasgow West End Today: “I put up a message on my personal Facebook and suddenly all these people started sharing it.
“I have had all these people get in touch.
“I keep the shoots close to each other and I keep my distance and don’t hang around.
“I phone before I get to the address so that I can meet people outside. I use a long lens.”

Some people like to be photographed with their pets. Photo: Caro Weiss
Caro was named by Cosmopolitan magazine as one of the top 15 wedding photographers in the UK.
She grew up in Germany and moved to London when she was 19.
She studied photography in Brighton and moved to Scotland in 2005 and has been doing wedding photography for the past 12 years.
She says she is not eligible for any of the government help schemes.
“Obviously, there are no weddings now – everything has been postponed.


“The Awful thing is that people who had taken out wedding insurance, the insurance companies are not paying out because they say it is not covering.
“All these couples sadly now have to postpone and cancel their big days, and as wedding suppliers we are not going to get a penny.
“I have just postponed everybody to next year – but then that means this year I am not earning anything.
“But I am a people person and I love my job and have been used to being with all these different people at weekends.
Older couple sitting on doorstep
The doorstep is a powerful symbol of the times. Photo: Caro Weiss
“I don’t think I am very good at being a housewife. I think my husband is going insane and also the children.
“I thought I would have to come up with something else I could do.
“Photographers in America have started doing a similar thing, taking these shots from a distance.
“I asked a few friends if they could be my guinea pigs, just so I could figure out how best to do this and make it safe.
“Since then it has just taken off like a rocket.
“It’s a way of documenting the situation we find ourselves in and the people we are sharing our lives with.”

The shoots are priced at £45 and people will receive 5 edited and retouched images for digital download and are also able to order prints.

‘Things Look A Little Different Now’: Pennsylvania Wedding Photographer Adapting To New Methods Behind The Lens As Stay-At-Home Orders Remain – CBS Philly

Pennsylvania Wedding Photographer Adapting To New Methods Behind The Lens As Stay-At-Home Orders Remain – CBS Philly

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Social distancing and work-from-home orders have pushed many of us to try creative new ways to get the job done, including some photographers. They’re now using video calls for the photoshoots they would typically do in person.
Download The New And Improved CBS Philly App!
They’re producing everything from engagement pictures to ad campaigns. This is typically the busy season for Kristen Lopez, a Pennsylvania wedding photographer.
“This time of year we’re usually shooting a lot of weddings, but things look a little different now,” Lopez said.
Lopez adapted her methods behind the lens of a different kind of camera, taking and editing screen captures through FaceTime.
“They place the phone down somewhere, we make sure it’s a pretty good spot with some decent lighting. Then I crack jokes to them, I have them snuggle, and just do different prompts,” she said. “The picture quality is surprisingly good.”
But Lopez says she’s not focused on pixels and resolution. Her mission is capturing a moment in time, like she did for an engaged couple in New Jersey.
“In the years to come, we’ll be like, ‘Oh, remember that time we were quarantined in our parents’ basement and we got these really cool pictures done!'” Laura Neuner, who is engaged, said.
The same idea is also taking off overseas. Italian fashion photographer Alessio Albi reached out to models he’s worked with to stage FaceTime shoots at their homes all over the world.
“It was like a game in the beginning, something you do with a friend,” Albi said.
The photos became so popular, Albi says he’s now receiving commissions from fashion brands. He calls the sessions a true collaboration with the model.
“People seem sometimes to forget what photography is about – it’s not about the complex gear expensive stuff that you have to use – it’s more about communication,” he said.
The creative compositions offer a unusual snapshot of these unprecedented times.
Lopez isn’t charging a fee for her engagement sessions, only asking that couples give to a local charity. She then matches that donation.

PHOTOS: Brides before and after having wedding day hair done
