Continuing last week’s Hollywood Vogue series of silver screen inspired bridal inspiration shoots, McAvoy Weddings and their team of North West wedding industry greats are back with another fabulous instalment. 

.

Jenny McAvoy says: Named “the most beautiful woman that ever lived” in 1954, Greta Garbo was one of Hollywood’s greatest stars. The complete package, Garbo was an actress who combined remarkable beauty with a modern spirit and irresistible allure.  Even today she remains one of the most fascinating women in history.

.

The Academy awarded Garbo "for her unforgettable screen performances.”  This paired with her aloof mysteriousness made the public crave to know more about her. Although seldom in the public eye she remained in the public’s mind, a woman of beauty and mystery, a legend.

We were inspired by Garbo’s mysteriousness and exquisite beauty to create this scene of model Lucy Holmes in a divine 30s design Stewart Parvin dress provided by Aphrodite and wraps by Wrapor.  This was taken against the exquisite backdrop of the brasserie stars leading up to the dining room of Belle Epoque, Knutsford. Her flowers were designed by Rosa and Co.
