Simple and Ethereal Bridal Inspiration

May 11, 2015 | Inspiration
Fine art brides are the ones who let beauty lead the way: simple, raw and organic beauty. We love this gorgeous and effortless editorial by one of our favorites, Hanke Arkenbout and stylist Avenue Lifestyle, with a delicate gown, natural makeup and lovely details. The understated color palette for the florals by MK Floral Design and decor only enhances the theme of simplicity. When dreaming of your bridal session or wedding design, sometimes taking a step back from too many intense details can make your design and look that much stronger... From Hanke Arkenbout: "For this shoot we'd like to give some inspiration to upcoming brides to show that 'less is more'. In these times it's easy to be overwhelmed with Pinterest boards that gives you loads of ideas for that one big day. It's easy to lose yourself in styling and details. But what it's all about is that you two decide to share the rest of your lives together. So, we wanted to share this shoot that features a basic set-up that still looks really pretty. We even used Ikea for the table setting, it doesn't have to be expensive to look good! Combined with a green table runner and lots of basic candles it gives just the right mood. We also choose for doable hair-do's and comfortable dresses." ethereal_styledshoot_hanke_arkenbout-008 Hanke Arkenbout Photography ethereal_styledshoot_hanke_arkenbout-003 Hanke Arkenbout Photography ethereal_styledshoot_hanke_arkenbout-009 Hanke Arkenbout Photography ethereal_styledshoot_hanke_arkenbout-027 Hanke Arkenbout Photography ethereal_styledshoot_hanke_arkenbout-031 Hanke Arkenbout Photography ethereal_styledshoot_hanke_arkenbout-029 Hanke Arkenbout Photography ethereal_styledshoot_hanke_arkenbout-038 Hanke Arkenbout Photography ethereal_styledshoot_hanke_arkenbout-044 Hanke Arkenbout Photography ethereal_styledshoot_hanke_arkenbout-062 Hanke Arkenbout Photography ethereal_styledshoot_hanke_arkenbout-080 Hanke Arkenbout Photography ethereal_styledshoot_hanke_arkenbout-017 Hanke Arkenbout Photography Hanke Arkenbout Photography is a Wedding Sparrow approved vendor and proudly part of the Fine Art Curation.
