European Inspired Secret Garden Shoot

MillieB_ReverieMade_1

Inspired by the history and beauty of European architecture and age-old secret gardens, stylist Kristen from REVERIE MADE designed this shoot at THE CAIRNWOOD ESTATE in Pennsylvania and had MILLIE B PHOTOGRAPHY capture all the beauty. Kristen tells us, “While so many brides and grooms dream of a destination wedding in Europe — a perfectly romantic setting to tell their story — it’s not always feasible. We wanted to create a wedding environment rich in European grandeur, but also one that is approachable, comfortable, and located in the US, with a fresh color palette of patina green, eggplant, blush, and mixed metals. We found the perfect location in The Cairnwood Estate, with its beautifully distinctive architecture towering over rolling hills and gardens. Beyond a meandering path lay a secret garden, enclosed by the stone walls of the Glencairn Museum.” Kristin herself created the gorgeous garden-inspired bouquet consisted of cafe au lait dahlias, peonies, garden roses, scabiosa and andromeda, complete with trailing French ribbons of varying shades and textures. Makeup artist STACIE FORD and hair artist DALEESA WEARY worked together to create a soft, dewy, natural look that so beautifully complemented model Cari’s features. LAEL CAKES created a beautiful ‘naked’ vegan cake adorned with fresh fruit.

Australian Bush Wedding Inspiration

FifteenPhotography_LightintheDark_1

Have you ever thought about switching things up a bit and trying out a more dramatic look for your wedding day? Well this gorgeous Australian bush shoot by FIFTEEN PHOTOGRAPHY that we featured in Issue 9 of the magazine shows you just how incredible a black gown can look. These gowns from PHILIPPA GALASSO are definitely one way to make a statement! Beautifully styled by STYLED BY LINDA and MAIE DIONISIO, I love the contrast of these couture gowns against the bush backdrop. The gorgeously natural make-up by CREATE COSMETICS and braided hair by HONEYCOMBED HAIR is the perfect finish for these stunning models.

Beautiful lakeside wedding in Russia

KseniaMilushkina_Alena&Vasya_1

Alena & Vasya lived close to each other most of their lives without knowing it; she was studying at university with one of his friends whilst he often went snowboarding at the same place she used to hang out with her friends. Every day she used to walk past his office, and he was working on materials for a project of hers… all of this without actually meeting. Once they finally did meet they knew they’d never be apart. After several proposals (read more about that below), they planned a wedding with vintage and rustic elements on Lake Korkino in Murmansk, Russia. KSENIA MILUSHKINA – whose work is always amazing, has done a stunning job of these images. I love all the portraits in the forest, such stunning light and that bouquet by OH MY FLOWERS is amazing!

TELL US ABOUT YOUR PROPOSAL: Everything developed very fast and after several months we started to live together and one year later at breakfast Vasya presented me an engagement ring. We couldn’t manage to organize a wedding for long time, something always made us postpone it. Whilst we were travelling Vasya was proposing to me over and over using the romantic mood of our destinations. So he proposed in the cold ice of Lapland, in the Greek islands, cozy Parisian cafes and under the hot sun of Emirates.

TELL US ABOUT FINDING YOUR WEDDING DRESS: Our wedding style evolved very easily. Neither of us are fans of brands, we value the real beauty of things so we opted for custom-made outfits.

WHAT ADVISE WOULD YOU GIVE TO A COUPLE PLANNING THEIR WEDDING? Get the most pleasure from every minute spent together. Preparation should not be a torture for you, we have proved it ourselves – it can and should become a pleasant phase in your relationships. Listen and understand each other, walk towards each other and remember that all you do you do for love.
