The Story Behind the Flying Wedding Dress: Marie & Pedro

Are you ready to have your mind blown? Well just look at this dress shot – what a brave bride – and yes, it was all her idea! “I got my inspiration for the dress flying photo from a picture from the Brazilian designer Karlla Girotto,” explained Marie. “The picture was from her summer 2007 campaign and it showed a parade of her dresses hanging on balloons with the models in front of them.”


And for those of you doubters who love to scream “Photo Shop!” at every opportunity (I know you’re out there!) photographer Danilo Siqueira used super thin fishing wire to keep the dress tied to the ground and then released the balloons with the dress hooked onto them.


Wedding photographers, the bar has been raised!

Anyway, as soon as I saw that shot on Danilo’s website I knew I wanted to feature the full wedding… and would you believe, it only got better with every image.

The celebration was held at Espaço Cantareira in São Paulo, Brazil. The couple wanted a colourful, fun and carefree wedding and they certainly achieved that. The bride wore (well, when it wasn’t flying in the air) a dress by Marca Pó de Arroz and they DIY’ed as much as possible including all the reception decor and the stationery. They also used local suppliers as much as they could.

“The pictures were our favourite thing about our wedding”, Marie concluded. “We’re so pleased we had Danilo to capture our day!”

Mind. Blown.

Thank you to Marie & Pedro and their photographer Danilo Siqueira for sharing this gorgeous wedding with us today.

    I’ve been waiting for this wedding!
    I love these photographs, you can a complete sense of just how fun the day is and how fun loving the couple are, right from the first pic of the floating dress.
    And the bride is absolutely beautiful!

  2. Wow, beyond amazing. The bride is stunning, lover her dress, her style, tattoos…very cool. And the photography is great. That floating dress idea is amazing. Xo

  3. I love how clients are now sometimes the ones to push boundaries and that there are awesome photographers that are inspired by them. This wedding is incredible all round.

    Since I’m planing to get married there at Trancoso, could anyone tell me when this wedding took place? I hope it doesn’t rain in mine.
