For this month's design in my collection of whimsies, I wanted to try my hand at a bridal whimsy, and here it is.
Here in Australia, Spring is bursting into life, and the occasional day is starting to be really warm. Lots of Spring blossoms are out, and wedding season is well and truly beginning.
It isn't surprising that September seemed like the perfect month to do a bridal design, because it was in September, three years ago, that I had my own wedding.
As I've mentioned before, I don't much care for modelling my own creations if I can avoid it, and I certainly didn't feel like doing my make-up and hair to a bridal standard (ok, I'm not actually even capable of doing that), so I've done something different for these photos, and used some props, including my own wedding shoes, my wedding and engagement rings, and a little bunch of flowers. If someone had to make their bridal bouquet from my back garden, this is what they might come up with!
I'm certainly not a bridal photographer, but I had fun doing these.
Bridal millinery is something I would like to pursue more, but haven't yet devoted much time too. I am extremely proud of the custom headpiece I made for Mel's wedding, last year, and I have a lot of design ideas in my head. So perhaps you will see more in the near future!
I was a bit uncertain about adding the green silk leaves, rather than sticking to a completely white/ivory palette, but I quite like it. What do you think about a bit of colour in bridal designs?
