A Marie Antoinette Inspiration

You know I’ve got a bit of a ‘thing’ for Marie Antoinette right? Well Marie Antoinette + pink hair couldn’t really be more perfect for Rock n Roll Bride if it tried could it?

“This is what happened when 2 crazy photographers from different states in Australia put their heads together,” began photographer Vanessa. “It all started with a wig Rhondda found on the internet (not the 1 we used actually) and after many chats and emails later we came up with Marie Antoinette as a bride. I wanted a bouquet out of the norm and didn’t really want traditional flowers in it. What better florists to put my thoughts of an “APPLE” bouquet into something fab..”Velvetlily” florist. So after a talking to them about want I wanted they came up with this amazing result! I also wanted apples and vine in the hair!!..a bit of a task for the make-up artist but we got there in the end.”

“We were also trying to think what other props we could use to make this work…hmmm A PIANO!! After hunting through the internet we finally found an old one that would work perfectly! I didn’t want to over kill the shoot with massive amount of props like you see these days in some other shoots..so we kept it simple with mainly the piano and just a chair. With the costumes again putting a twist on things.”

Gorgeous huh? I’m desperate for a Rock n Roll Bride to rock this look on her actual wedding day!

Big love and thanks to Vanessa & Rhondda for sharing this fab shoot with us today.

    The flowers, photos and props for this shoot are absolutely exquisite, I am a budding photographer myself and hope I can put together something like this one day…. The florist should be so proud, the apples are divine, I have never seen anything like it… 🙂

  5. These photos are absolutely fabulous. I love the opulence and colorful flair of the Marie Antoinette spread! Now I want to see an 1800s French Rev wedding theme.
