Morning everyone! Ella got in touch with me a couple of weeks ago and asked if she could share photographs from her 1920s wedding inspiration shoot with us all on the English Wedding Blog… and I couldn’t resist. The story behind Ella’s shoot is wonderful – inspired by Ella’s Nan – and the images by Alter Ego Portraits are divine. I’m going to share everything with you on the blog today from Ella’s first email to me, the images and a full list of everyone involved in the shoot.

1920s wedding inspiration photography martin plant (10)

“Dear Claire,

I was recently asked if I’d be interested in participating in a vintage style 1920’s shoot by photographer Martin Plant of Alter Ego Portraits. I jumped at the chance as I have always had a deep affinity with the 20’s. My grandmother gave me a photo of Jessie Matthews and I had to admit the likeness was uncanny. I also have a theatrical background and staring at her photo always gave me a sense of belonging, of coming home.
