Ethereal Dusty Blue Bridal Inspiration
“The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in the interiors of collapsing stars. We are made of starstuff.” ― Carl Sagan, Cosmos
Less is more and simplicity reigns. We're feeling refreshed and inspired by the dusty blue studio feel of today's beauty by Jess Petrie mixed with the natural element of the Magnolia flowers...
From Jess Petrie: "The main concept of this shoot was “less is more.” We wanted to replicate the bride being prepared for her Spring wedding at her boudoir. It’s a simplistic shoot that is enchanting, raw and emotive. At the start of the day/shoot the bride looks nervous and shy, but as time progresses you can see her confidence growing, she becomes playful and she is transformed into a beautiful bride, a shining star. Towards the end of the shoot she displays the magic and enchantment of a beautiful bride-to-be as she cries tears of joy as she visualizes seeing her love.
The buzzing sounds of glorious nature, the pink hues and the sweet smell of the magnolia flower, with the explosion of greys and blues in the sky, along with a creative team, all brought this romantic Spring bridal story together.
The bouquet was made from paper flowers and real branches, we wanted to focus on textures and colour palettes that complimented one-another, and that also helped to tell the story of a bride in Spring."
