I can’t take credit for the conceptualisation and styling of this beautifully romantic Ballet Bridal Style Inspiration; so I will let the mastermind behind this session, Jeanette from Paramithi: Flowers & Decor Design, tell you herself how it all came about:
“If I had to live my life all over again, I would love to become a Ballerina. There is nothing that comes close to the elegance, soulful freedom of expression that movement of dance – The ballerina, of course, is the most romanticized type of dancer in the world and there is hardly a little girl out there that has never dreamed of becoming that embodiment of grace and beauty. Here is some romantic, wedding inspiration for the dancer that lives inside all of us!”
Attention to detail with the soft colours, the tulle, the ribbon and the elegance and strength embodied by the dancers themselves. Many brides to be will remember ballet lessons as a child but even more will relate to that of the bride who is not just “sweet and girly” but a complex amalgamation of the soft, the hard, the modern and femininity. We loved the notion of the Ballerina Bride and how ballet and all it’s beauty could inspire a Bride planning her wedding.
Corle Barnard completed the hair and makeup look with a dainty pink lips, and a sculpted ballerina braided up-do. Our ballerina bride was swathed in luxe fabrics and pastel hues including soft flowy dresses from CJA Couture. T We focused on the softer, more feminine and pretty Ballerina bride look. Our beautiful model Gabby is a real life ballerina; We wanted genuine ballet poses and dancing sequences to achieve something a little different to the usual bridal postures.
Chocolat Bistro with its European furnishings and stunning courtyard was the perfect location and setting for this shoot. The elegant look of crystal and golds was a perfect match for the soft and stylish spirit of this ballerina bride.
“One step, two steps, three steps; like winds of time experience joy of centuries, when movements become revelations of the dance of destinies.” ― Shah Asad Rizvi
