The Sleeping Beauty Bride.

fairytale

Whatever you are doing this Tuesday afternoon – you need to stop for 10 minutes and have a look at this divine inspiration shoot.

The bridal pretty comes courtesy of Miss Gen Photography and it literally has us weak at the knees…the bed-head hair, the just-been-kissed red lips, the soft drape of georgette and the voluptuousness of satin, gauzy veils edged with vintage lace, delicate and ornate wax headpieces…honestly, I’m bursting with excitement for you to see it!

The shoot draws inspiration from fairytales – two fair maidens trapped in a tower, waiting to be rescued by their true loves. And like any good fairy tale heroines, these two are in elegant gowns, with bespoke accessories and surrounded by bountiful blooms.

Exactly how I’d like to be on my wedding day!

Genevieve at Miss Gen:I imagined a fairytale bride asleep in a bed of tulle overgrown with ivy and spring blooms. When I explained my idea to some London based designers, I was lucky to find a fantastic group of people who wanted to help make the shoot a reality.

The fairytale bride resonated with my collaborators who loved the idea of a sleeping beauty inspiration shoot and I found two beautiful models who embodied the princess/pixie/vintage look perfectly.

This shoot draws on the fairytale idea incorporating a modern editorial twist while showcasing London bridal fashion from up-and-coming designers. I chose an industrial warehouse as the location to give the fairytale a modern feel. We took elements from the Briar Rose story and created something that modern brides can relate to with ideas they can use in their own weddings. I love the contrast between the pretty styling and the gritty urban environment.

The antique headpieces are made of wax and have been lovingly restored by Rosie Weisencrantz. With their delicate feminine quality, they convey a sense of romance and nostalgia that can only ever be truly appreciated through the veil of time. Each piece is unique, fragile & beautiful.

Faith’s bridal gowns have a whimsical feel, are super flattering and are intricately designed. Rebecca from Ivy Pip & Rose really embraced the theme and created some stunning wild & rustic bouquets, floral crowns and floral and ivy trails.

This whimsical, fairytale inspiration shoot was a pleasure to create with a great group of London designers, models and artists. I loved shooting this fashion story and seeing my idea come to life.

  1. So beautiful – totally spot on Pre-Raphaelite but perfect for 2014. Accessories are lovely. I love the black and white photos as well as the colour – they both work well and would make an amazing photo album of memories. What I love about it is the understatement of the accessories – natural and feminine. Unusual tiaras – well I mean the one with the stand up white ‘teeth’ – looks good though.
