.Urban Chic

 .Modern Vintage & Co. have been so lucky these last few months to work with some incredible planners and photographers. This Urban Chic shoot was created by the lovely ladies at Love Circus who are also responsible for the fun filled Love Circus Bash and shot once again by my talented friend Ashley Ludäscher.
We happily created a champagne pyramid from our vintage style cocktail glasses and our favourite florist Hurriyet used some of our cut glass vases to create stunning floral centre-pieces. So many talented, creative Berlin companies were involved in creating this shoot, and as if that was not enough to get us super excited about being  involved, the venue for this photoshoot was none other than Soho House Berlin. I love the Soho House group.
Thank you Love Circus, Ashley Ludaescher and all of the other great vendors involved in the shoot. It was a delight to work with you all.

.thomas hermanns

 .Earlier this summer Modern Vintage & Co., were honoured to be asked by German TV presenter and comedian Thomas Hermanns to create an English tea party picnic for his birthday. 
 The event was held in a beautiful schloss in Potsdam and we delighted the guests with our selection of drinks served in vintage tea cups and saucers plus delicious cakes, sandwiches and macarons presented on our 3 tier cake stands.  The birthday boy looked superb in hs pink suit - very dapper! My wonderful, dedicated staff tell me that there were quite a number of other celebrities at this gorgeuos event but, I must confess, being rather new to Germany I could not recognise anyone. Perhaps you can, if you look closely at some of our photos...?

 .Now that summer is sadly almost over, I have time to run through all of the exciting projects that we have been working on at the Modern Vintage & Co. HQ. The first is this beautiful Great Gatsby inspired shoot (F.Scott Fitzgerlad is my absolute fav.) at the stunning Schlosshotel Grunewald. My dear, and super talented photographer, friend Ashley Ludäscher and I were asked by glamorous wedding planner Bettina of Beautiful Occasions and florist extraordinaire Hurriyet of Botanic Art to be part of this shoot and naturally we jumped at the chance!
I am so proud of the results from this shoot. There were so many wonderful Berlin based wedding and events vendors involved and the final photos from Ashley are stunning. A special thanks to my lovely friends Anne and Nico (a real couple) who kindly agreed to be hour excellent models - we could not have done it without them.

Many thanks also to the following blogs who have kindly featured the shoot on their pages:

.This is embarrassingly late but I want to do a quick recap of the fabulous Love Circus Bash which Modern Vintage & Co. took part in a few weeks ago.

Arranged by the lovely Olivia & Didem of hip Berlin wedding planners Love Circus, it was a two day extravaganza of wedding loveliness.

We displayed a small selection of our hundreds of vintage tableware pieces (which are now all available for hire in Berlin!) and enjoyed spending the weekend with the beautiful and talented wedding photographer Ashley Ludaescher who was our neighbour at the event.

 .Not for the first time, I am completely fixated on hair up-dos and braids in particular. Above are a few of my favourite finds from Pinterest. I am particularly keen on the Zoë Saldaña look at the end because a) I think she always looks fabulous and b) it is a look I can easily recreate. Win, win!

On a connected note, I was recently really inspired by a post by Joanna Goddard about one of her readers who was hosting a braid bar in order to raise money for a major operation she had had. The event has passed but we can all still donate.

 .At the moment I am really inspired by white and gold because we have been adding a lot of beautiful white/gold crockery pieces to our hire collection. Here are some of my favourite images from Pinterest. Image sources . a, b, c

 .Yasmin Sewell is one of Britain's most respected fashion retail consultants. As the owner of a fashion communications and brand consultancy I was already a huge admirer of her work but her wedding in May 2012 to Kyle Robinson, owner of London fashion showroom Paper Mache Tiger surpassed even my expectations. First of all, a true woman after my own heart Yasmin wore a custom grey gown by Michael Herz at Bally. It seems that grey has unintentionally become the wedding dress colour of the fashion industry woman. Secondly the wedding day seems to ooze exactly the kind of laid back charm I love at weddings and thirdly, is there anything cuter than the couple's son Knox Rocket? No, I didn't think so. More details on Yasmin Sewell's wedding can be seen here.
