The idea behind this shoot had been sitting in the back of my mind for so long. It all started with Inbal Dror’s instagram (@inbaldroroffical). Their insanely beautiful bridal gowns are shot in the street, up fire escapes and with enormous skyscrapers in the background. I fell in love with the juxtaposition of a delicate bridal gown against the concrete city environment. An obsession was born!!
Margaret River as a region is so iconic. We have many unique locations which are commonly used for wedding photos; the beach, the vineyards, the forest, caves, rocks, paddocks!! Nature blooms down here and it made me think; why not shoot a bridal scene where the region comes together – the main street. Sure we don’t have skyscrapers but we certainly have historic architecture and charm.
Caitlin Lloyd is a style wizard and she was the first person I turned too. We decided on a very modern luxe style. A sexy black tux and the hero of the shoot – Harriette Gordon’s bridal jumpsuit. Dark features such as nails, lips and blooms are a rarity in current bridal trends, which made using them all the more fun. From there we trusted Paris Hawken to bring it all together with her extraordinary photography skills.
This shoot wouldn’t have been possible without the collaborative efforts of some amazing South West vendors. We have a wedding industry filled with talent and I am so thankful for everyone who shared in the magic.
Enjoy the images!
I hope you love them as much as I do and find some inspiration; if not a new obsession!!
