Morning lovelies and welcome to ‘The Lookbook’ our newest feature based on our love of fashion and design. The J&J team spend a lot of time working on styled wedding shoots and with my own passion lying in the delicious design details of an ensemble or set I figured it might be of some help to break down the looks from our shoots (and a good excuse to create many more!) so you can discover the designer/supplier behind a certain gown or accessory…and perhaps experience a eureka moment that inspires your own unique approach to said style.
We do love a frou frou 50’s bride…but if you want to put the F into Fierce than steer clear of frothy layers and textures and go for a cleaner line adding a more modern edge. Avoid pastel shades – a white or ivory longer length gown is crisp, stylish and elegant. Add interest with your accessories – a statement veil for impact and drama and a couple choice “secondary” accessories such as cat-eye shades and colour-punch peep-toes, which can always be removed for some of your photos if you also want to showcase a less (heavily) stylised look…
We’re hedging our bets that if Sandy from Grease were getting spliced today she’d be our contemporary 50’s bride:
So there you have it, simple styling, maximum effect.
