JULIE CAHILL recently worked with Judy of JU. LEE CHIC who has designed a beautiful line of vintage inspired gowns full of lace and tulle. Incorporating subtle details like a metallic rose gold underlay and gold threading throughout her dress designs, they are a picture of grace against the rugged coastline and blue waters at Asilomar Beach in California. THE BONNY DOON GARDEN COMPANY crafted a gorgeous bouquet full of textures in shades of blue which is something we don’t often see. With the stunning cove of turquoise waters and soft skies above, stylist Eileen of E EVENTS CO. kept the design simple and airy with draped fabric and sea glass to accent the vintage blue couch. Make-up artist KELLY JONES created soft hair and a natural look for the models with a stained lip and shades of copper and mauve to finish the look. The entire shoot simply exudes femininity.
I’ve been lucky enough to travel a lot throughout Europe but Greece is one place I never made it to. All those incredible islands and beaches make the perfect backdrop as you can see in this bridal shoot that Eleni from LOVE4WED put together. Captured by ADRIAN WOOD & ANNA ROUSSOS you just can’t go wrong with a calm beach setting, romantic lace dresses – from ANEM – and some gorgeous blooms by KOKKINOS FLOWERS
Eleni tells us; “When we were planning this bridal shoot to take place in the heart of the winter season, we searched for the perfect location that combined the calm setting of the Greek coastline with lush greenery and reddish rust colored rocks. We wanted the photo shoot to have a simple, delicate and romantic feeling that effortlessly blended in with the natural beauty of the Greek coast. Although it may sound impossible to find, we discovered this secluded seafront location… a hidden gem that was the ideal backdrop for the shoot. The bold deep red flowers were the perfect antithesis and the lace handmade wedding dresses with soft tulle created by Greek fashion designer Anna Anemomylou looked as dreamy as ever. The floral crown was simply divine and completed the ethereal bridal look.“

If you know me just a teeny bit you’ll know that this shoot by SARA HASSTEDT is SO very ‘me’. The warm colours, the texture, the incredible landscapes… the combination of those things with stunning photography makes my heart happy and has me wanting to get out into the mountains! With gorgeous styling by PREMA and some incredible florals by BARE ROOT FLORA the team tell us, “Inspired by the rolling landscape of the Colorado foothills, this pioneer bride is filled with optimism for her new life ahead. Both rugged and refined, her look is informed by the past with a sense of modest delicacy and yet entirely au courant with its bohemian flair. Authentic, warm and at ease, this bride lives and moves with an innate understanding of herself as part of the land.“
