We have a treat for you today! When designer Makány Márta’s office got in touch with us about an anniversary photo shoot featuring two of her gorgeous pieces, we were immediately intrigued. Lo and behold, the photos, inspired by the enchanting world of a friend’s vintage flower shop, showcased a couple celebrating their 38th wedding anniversary. Lajos, a former engineer and Edit, a former teacher, are now both retired. They met almost 40 years ago and the rest is history!
We’ll let Linda Meszaros of Makany Marta tell us the rest in her own words. Take it away Linda!
Edit’s life totally changed when she started her model career a few years ago. She was chosen by a famous Hungarian hairdresser as his model for the Alternative Hair Show London. And this is not the end of the story. She was picked by an English hair artist and was taken to Los Angeles to work for him. These new experiences made her become more creative, self-confident and experimental.
Edit and Lajos decided to celebrate their wedding anniversary in an extraordinary way. They asked Hungarian fashion designer Makány Márta to make a dress that fit Edit’s open-minded personality and made her look more fabulous than ever. Edit chose a mermaid dress because she had never tried anything like this before.
The second dress was even more extraordinary than the first one, it beautifully fitted Edit’s unique look. Lajos had a black suit with white shirt to keep it simple.
One of the couple’s friends owns a vintage style flower showroom and she was willing to provide the shop for the photo shoot. The main colors of the decoration were ecru and yellow because they are Edit’s favorite. The yellow flower bouquet was made by the flower shop owner, Viola Violetta. Because the couple wanted something modern yet still traditional, they decided to use some china and silver cutlery inherited from the family.
No one from the family knew they were having a photo shoot; it was a surprise for them. The only one participating in it was their lovely dog, Vackor, who was rescued from a dog shelter years ago. He didn’t really understand what was going on but felt he had an important role!
