After being featured on White Magazine‘s blog (a career highlight! aaaaah!), I can finally post this shoot myself. Earlier this year, Ali from Ali’s Makeup Station introduced herself to me and proposed working together on a styled shoot. This has always been something I’ve wanted to get into so I jumped at the chance! We met for coffee and bounced ideas off each other- ultimately coming up with the inspiration behind this shoot. Pinterest became our best friend, and the mood board I came up with was shown to all the vendors Ali had arranged. It is lovely to see, in retrospect, that the clean and classic feel we aspired towards has come out so well in the photographs.

Have a read of this fantastic editorial written by Shells Gough of Confetti Corner:

Moving away from the traditional white wedding, and inspired by a palette of gold, blue and black, this styled-shoot explores a bold new look for daring brides to be. Simunovich Olive Estate provided the perfect setting; the sprawling grounds nestled amongst the groves also boast some of the best views Bombay has to offer.

Ali gathered only the best vendors, with Blossom Wedding Flowers designing the bouquets and table settings. Set amongst the rustic elegance of Simunovich Olive Estate, the whimsical arrangements lend a nostalgic & charming feel. An indie – bohemian dress by A La Robe was worn by Chrissy, and the suit by worn by Michael convey a dramatic and fearless statement, sweeping you away in each photograph. The lavish cake, made by Cake Fix concluded the ambience of the shoot. Makeup was a fusion of soft and fearless, with a palette of golds, reds and peaches creating a graceful and elegant bridal look.

This shoot takes you on an unexpected journey where moody glamour meets classic romance, where opulence takes precedence and nothing is forbidden.
