Catherine discovered Karlos was the owner of Ralph&co.Vintage and his show barn was situated close by in Ely.
Catherine visited him there to find not only one very beautiful vintage carousel horse, but also an overwhelming collection of wild and wonderful wares.
Thus igniting the flame to a rather large explosion of mutual benefit,
which begins here.
On the 4th of April 2016, at this point still pretty unaware of who Karlos was I opened my inbox to find this very intriguing invitation to a collaboration –
I liked this guys style.
And I like a nice font.
I also really like the word Collaboration.
It sounds sleek.
It proposed that our eight top of their game Cambridgeshire based businesses, each offering services that have a strong wedding based client market, get together to showcase what can be achieved when we join forces.
The theme was Vintage. The venue was Granary Barns.

My Pretty Little Tea Party
We decided to go for two interpretations of the Vintage wedding theme.
Ash from Cambridge Headshots went with a more traditional and realistic wedding set up.
We had a full bridal party of models.
Props and decorative items by Ralph&co.vintage and Vintage china from My pretty little tea party were scattered around the grounds bursting with flowers and petals. The whole place smelled as amazing as it looked.
The flower arrangements and hair bouquets by Nicola from Mooie Bloom were perfect.
I've never been so impressed by floristry in my life.
Make up by Flash Kate and gentleman styling by Sam from Mr Barbers.
Everyone was gorgeous and Ash got a stunning set of images that really portray what real couples could expect visually from working with the suppliers on board.
We wanted to make use of the beautiful flowers and the props and went wild with a selection of costumes and ideas.
I think we came up with a great selection of fun images with a touch of vintage wedding feel glamour and a lot of Electric Rodeo Circus character.
Check out the gallery below for a huge selection of images by me and Cambridge Headshots taken on the day.
