When I heard about brand new online indie bridal boutique, Ceremonia NYC, I was super excited! Their collection of exclusive dresses and accessories looks so damn good, and really different from the usual wedding dress fare. Their offerings are anything but traditional!
“The bridal industry is really fun right now”, said photographer Sheena of UNIQUE LAPIN Photography. “There are so many new and unique styles emerging. Brides today have so many options both aesthetically and price-point-wise. Along with being inspired by decades past, we wanted to make sure we captured the new spirit of the rapidly changing bridal landscape with this shoot.”
It was only a matter of time until someone created a photo shoot inspired by Solange’s wedding to Alan Ferguson. As soon as I saw that hair, that jumpsuit and those adorable images of her on a bicycle, I knew it had to happen!
Put together by wedding photographer John Bello, the shoot took place in Vancouver. “We were obviously inspired by Solange Knowles’ wedding”, he told me. “We wanted to shoot something that would appeal to the more unconventional bride. From a plexi pillar dessert table to baby’s breath and keeping the colour scheme to all white and cream. We wanted to capture a very fresh, modern but romantic wedding.”
When Erica from Mr and Mrs Unique and Jodie from Alternative Events sat down to plan this shoot, their main goal was to produce something that was vibrant, inspiring and most of all fun! I think all you colour lovers out there will just adore this!
“The shoot took place at The Boiler House in Cardiff”, said Erica, “and it was the perfect backdrop with its Keith Haring inspired graffiti wall art. I was keen to turn the industrial unit into something couples could envisage as a wedding reception space.”
I have something a little different for you this morning. I fell in love with this styled wedding shoot for one main reason – the use of colour! I am obsessed with how everything matches so perfectly in each image, even going so far as to match the models’ hair and make up! Isn’t the result so great?
This pretty Great Gatsby inspired wedding shoot is the perfect way to ease you into the long weekend. I don’t really feature styled wedding shoots on the blog much any more (because, let’s face it, real weddings are usually way better!) but I loved the use of colour and the elegant, yet totally reproducible, details in this one so much.
Shot in Portland, Oregon, by a team of local suppliers, wedding photographer Meredith Bacon told me all about it. “This intimate scene is set on a quaint and lush forest in Portland. Crystals drip from the branches of evergreen and deciduous trees at a romantic alter, lavish flowers and candelabra decorate the 20s lounge-style reception.”
Surely you know what a kiss is?” she asked, aghast. “I shall know when you give it to me,” he replied stiffly, and not to hurt his feeling she gave him a thimble. “Now,” said he, “shall I give you a kiss?” and she replied with a slight primness, “If you please.”
Obsessed with the Disney version of Peter Pan and Wendy, wedding photographer Nicki Komorowski decided she wanted to shoot a real life couple, inspired by her favourite love story. “I started obsessing about a grown up Peter with a huge ginger beard and a green suit!” she told me.
