Turn Your Bridesmaids into Rainbow Bright Unicorns with Curious Coco!

Turn Your Bridesmaids into Rainbow Bright Unicorns with Curious Coco (33)

When it comes to looking for bridesmaid dresses, it can be tricky to find anything really, truly unique. Sure, if you want to do the mismatched thing, or the multiway dress thing, or the 1950s reproduction thing it’s getting much easier, but if you want your maids rocking something really wacky and different it can be pretty difficult. While the high street is also a great place to look, it can also be hard to make sure all your girls match and look like bridesmaids, rather than just wedding guests.

Enter Curious Coco: A new range for alternative bridesmaids from the genius team behind The Couture Company! When I saw this shoot to launch the collection with all that colour and sparkle and rainbow action, I knew I had to share them with you.

“This shoot was created with one mission in mind: Go as bright as you like!” explained Jo, the brains behind The Couture Company and Curious Coco. “In a world of wedding beige we want to splash colour wherever we go. Our aim is to be super bright and offer a real alternative to traditional bridesmaids options.”

Hipster Inspired Elopement Shoot

Melbourne Elopement Shoot-Maria Luise Bauer Photography-100

This stunning elopement shoot took place in Melbourne and was shot and organised by German photographer Maria Luise Bauer.

“We used a gown from Georgia Young“, she said. “I totally love her work and always wanted to shoot with her dresses so I sent her an email a few days before flying to Melbourne, asking if we could meet up and if I maybe could shoot a little inspiration with one of her gowns. And she said yes!”

“This shoot was very spontaneous. I wanted to do something hipster-ish, and to be inspired by an elopement in the city. I wanted it to see free and non-traditional. I put together the flowers myself and kept them basic. I wanted to show that if you’re having a low budget wedding you can just do things yourself.”

“I’ve always loved Mario Testino’s more colourful dramatic fun photo shoots”, says owner Polly who styled the shoot, “and felt that along with recent trends for adding bright colours and metallics around eyes, it was the right time to add more drama and colour to a bridal shoot. We wanted to do this through almost every element including the make up, stationery, cake, flowers and props. Our vision was complimented by Otaduy’s edgy sleek dresses and jackets.”
