Blowing away the cobwebs this morning with this incredibly romantic destination wedding set against the breath-taking backdrop of the Cayman Islands. Full of luxe and lovely details we adore Jennifer and Ryan’s sophisticated. elegant yet relaxed wedding style…
From photographer Daria: There is nothing quite like a destination wedding in the Cayman Islands! The lovely Jennifer and Ryan tied the knot at Kaibo Beach Bar in Rum Point. The day started beautifully with Jennifer and her ladies getting ready at Villa Emmanuel with the girls dressed in gorgeous taupe/cream palette dresses coupled with pretty pink peony bouquets. I simply couldn’t contain my excitment with all of the pretty details from the fabulous ceremony and party shoes to Jennifer’s gorgeous cathedral veil. Once everyone was ready we headed over to the other side of the island for the first look. Boy was it windy! We fought the wind a bit but it sure made for some beautiful dramatic photos. The threat of rain was never far away but we were lucky with the weather in the end.
Clean, contemporary and effortlessly elegant, today’s feature – a styled shoot featuring blue and white wedding inspiration offers enduring bridal style. Simple yet statement there are so many steal-worthy ideas…and oh my the Monique Lhuillier gown!
From Stylist Handley of Handley Breaux Designs: Blue and white is a classic combination that I always find myself drawn to. I used this and added in touches of soft pinks and gold to create an elegant wedding inspiration. The soft light in Bridge Street Gallery & Loft served as the perfect backdrop for our stunning model. The first look was more of a traditional bridal look with a Monique Lhuillier gown. The dramatic bouquet was really a show-stopper and contrasted nicely with the simple gown. Keeping with the blue and white theme, our second look was an Hermes scarf used as a top and a luscious silk skirt. The scarf makes the table design really pop! The simple color scheme allows all of the details to come together seamlessly…
Whilst I’m not one to champion “paint-by-numbers” wedding “themes” a scheme influenced by a couples love of a certain designer, era, novel or any creative art form is what keeps wedding celebrations stylish, personal and unique. Today’s suppliers showcase offers just that kind of inspiration. Edgy, attention-grabbing and highly stylised it’s a wonderful example of how to pay “homage” without imitating.
Perfect for the alternative bride and inspired by the strong heroine’s in Tim Burton films, Erin, blogger and editor of the fabulous Way Out Wedding set about creating a styled shoot so fabulously fierce it’ll give you goose-bumps…quite apt with Halloween around the corner! A pleasure to publish a fellow wedding bloggers work and directional inspiration, here’s what she had to say about their shoot:
The team members are all huge fans of the quirky gothic styling Tim Burton brings to his films, and so our Pinterest planning board was fantastic!! We focused on his female charactersand we had a two-part story: How his blonde and innocent heroines (e.g. Johanna in Sweeney Todd) would dress for a wedding, and alternatively how his anti-heroines (Victoria from The Corpse Bride, or Mrs Lovett from Sweeney Todd again) would style themselves.
