Mish-Mashed & Eclectic Bridal Inspiration

July 3, 2012

I have three words for you – Giant. Paper. Flowers.

I know…amazing. I’ve actually got two blog posts going up today featuring them. How lucky are you!? There will be a stop-you-in-your-tracks-drop-dead-gorgeous real wedding up this afternoon, but let’s kick the day off with this stunner of a brightly coloured, mish-mashed and ever so eclectic bridal shoot.

“I wanted to create a bridal shoot which wasn’t too ‘wedding-y’ and based upon the idea that things look better (to me at least!) when they clash, and don’t really match”, wedding photographer Sally T Photography told me. “I love chaos, colour and pattern… when everything looks a little bit thrown together, instead of everything matching and looking too thought out. I’ve done a fair few shoots in the past but really wanted to create one of my own which would reflect what I was really into as well as using some amazing suppliers I’ve met along the way. It was to be eclectic, colourful, mixed up, clash-y, strong dark plum lipstick, flicked eyeliner, messy hair, vintage dresses and vintage accessories, all set up in the lounge bar and reception of the Tontine Hotel.”

“I’d worked with model Nathalie before. She is a burlesque model with long auburn hair and huge eyes. I thought her look would really contrast our second model, Olivia’s, english rose complexion and blonde hair – they looked so fab next to each other and were both amazing all day. I also knew the hotel would be perfect with its jewel colours and eclectic decor, plus I’d heard they’d just had a leopard print carpet laid in the reception and needed to check it out!”

Gorgeous! Thank you to the whole team (credited below) for sharing these today.
