If there’s one thing that makes me happy more than anything else it’s lots and lots of colour! So, obviously, Carly and Jason’s wedding was right up my street! The couple were married on Pebble Beach, under the Brooklyn Bridge and their reception was held at Dumbo Loft. Carly’s incredible sunset ombre dress was, unbelievably, from ASOS!

“Our wedding was vibrant, colorful, handmade, bespoke and eco-friendly”, began the bride. “We decided early on that what we really wanted was a killer party with great food, booze and dancing, attended by our closest family and friends. We kept the marrying part awesome but brief, so we could get onto the celebrating, drinking and dancing!”

“From the get-go, I knew my wedding dress would not be white. I chose an unconventional dress to get hitched in, something that would reflect my personality. I landed on a super colorful ombre dress with a low back to show off my years training as a swimmer. Who says you can’t be sexy at your wedding?!”

“Jason works at Etsy’s HQ in Dumbo, so not only did we turn to Etsy to find a ton of the personalized touches for the wedding, we also tried to get as many other things from local sources as possible”, she continued. “From the Brooklyn Brewery beer in the keg, to the lavender from Long Island, and the the cake and cupcakes from local New York bakeries.”

Simple & Organic Bridal Inspiration

To me, the thing that makes a really great editorial shoot isn’t all the pretty details (although they help), the beautiful model or the amazing backdrop – it’s the narrative and the story that the images tell. As soon as I saw this shoot sent over by wedding photographer James Melia I instantly started wondering what this girl’s story was and what the photographer and stylist wanted to tell us.

But luckily for me I could just ask them! As James explains, “The inspiration for this shoot came from a really simple idea of just a girl, and the beauty of the everyday. Using our model Jemima as our inspiration. each of the contributors added our own elements while working with a colour palette of peacock blues and moss greens. We thought it would look really striking against her delicate translucent skin and white blue cropped hair.”
