Dolce Fiore : Bridal Inspiration
Our Dolce Fiore Bridal Editorial was inspired by the new Dolce & Gabbana 2017 Collection with its dark florals, bright colours, black lace and complete extravagance. With a touch of the tropics and that iconic louder than life persona D&G has always created for their brand; this bridal editorial storyboard took on a life of its own.
Here is a look at the full album of the shoot:
“There are no longer rules in fashion, but what matters is to remain true to yourself.” ~ D&G
It’s nontraditional, it is loud, and it is all about being yourself and not adhering to the perceptions of the traditional bride. With CJA Haute Couture’s dramatic black lace and dark floral dresses working beautifully with the luscious floral designs by Jeanette from Paramithi: Florals & Decor Design. Our own wonder woman and recently engaged; co-ordinator Jessica from Mon Amour Events was also so gracious to be our model for the day and her fair complexion was a perfect fit in contrast to the dark intensity of the lookbook.
My love for fashion has never seized to inspire and bring about the brainstorming of ideas with like minded people in the wedding industry. Being a wedding industry professional means you have a need to create beauty and beautiful moments; but in a world where everything can quickly become mundane, it isn’t always easy to find that original take on something like a bridal inspiration editorial. However, if you work with a fantastic team a little seed of an idea can quickly become a concept that has a message and story behind it. Be true to who you are!
Ida Webster artfully created a romantic bridal look to complement the array of colours featured in the dresses and flowers.
Mieke from Eureka Functions not only accommodated us in their beautiful venue, but she also made that delicious Crepé Stack that had us all wanting a bite.
