A Jules Verne & Steampunk Inspired Bridal Fashion Editorial

December 6, 2011

This incredible fashion editorial was shot on the Creole Queen Paddlewheel for the winter issue of NOLA Wedding Guide. The shoot was inspired by Jules Verne, the 19th century and steampunk.

“Jules Verne’s novels were rich with extravagant voyages and adventures set in the romantic Victorian Era,” the team explained. “This was the era of the newly invented steam engine and through-railways and steamships, which opened up the opportunity for leisure travel and adventure for the first time.”

“What could be a better metaphor for wedding planning and a marriage than an extraordinary voyage? Isn’t that what you, the bride, is embarking upon? Your upcoming marriage is the beginning of a journey filled with delightful adventures, and of course romance!”

Thanks to everyone involved for sharing this shoot with us today.
