Happy Monday All!
I’m a little late posting today having returned to the “house of man-flu” after a wonderful couple of days in London. Features ed. Jo and I attended the Wedding Blog Awards on Friday night where we were awarded Highly Commended in our category of “Best Newcomer” against stiff competition and a group of women we really admire. High praise indeed and we are so grateful for all your votes and support – thank you. You can view the full list of shortlist & winners here xXx
On to today and the inspiration we’re showcasing. Another instalment of Juno’s Lookbook and focus on a bridal style I simply adore – the screen goddess bride. For me this style is synonymous with the roaring 20’s and silent film. Iconic bridal style where every element is statement yet feminine and understated too…a bias cut gown in plain luxe fabric, a head-turner of a headpiece that whilst statement is effortlessly beautiful and unfussy and strong make-up that brings out the brides delicate features.
We tried our best to emulate a look that’s timeless and can translate well into a contemporary wedding setting. It’s important to consider paying homage to a bygone style than copy – putting the here and now into context.
Oh this brings back memories of a wonderful shoot and the most supportive collaborative team!
