Getting your work featured on global wedding blog Style Me Pretty is a bit like the holy grail for wedding photographers. it is probably the biggest, best and most beautiful wedding blog in the world. So I was just a little bit excited to have my Venice bridal shoot featured on their hallowed pages last week. It has been a business goal/dream of mine for some time, so I am really rather thrilled. Champagne all round :) It was featured on ‘Style Me Pretty Destination’, which is full of gorgeous inspiration for brides planning a destination wedding anywhere in the world. I would certainly be interested to hear from any brides planning a wedding in Venice ;)

A little bit more about the shoot… Quite simply a beautiful bride in a beautiful dress on the streets of Venice… the aim of the shoot was to create some beautiful fine art bridal portraits in Venice, using the tones and textures found there as inspiration, with a bohemian twist. A Claire Pettibone dress was a must, and Constance, with her rich dark cream lace and unstructured silhouette was the perfect choice (and easy to transport in my hand-luggage!). To create a few different looks I chose two headpieces; the first an intricate beaded piece with a full-length, lace scalloped-edge veil attached, which provided both drama and elegance. The second, a delicate circlet made of tiny hand-crafted clay flowers, beads and jewels, with a pretty train of ribbons and organza in blush and peachy tones, which created a more boho feel. We added long cream gloves and a fur wrap for more theatrical glamour. Our model was perfect, her gorgeous red hair and tan brogues working perfectly with the dark cream lace of the dress and the pale terracotta and aqua tones of the city. We spent a lovely morning wandering the back streets, alleyways, canals and bridges of a rather flooded Venice, creating dreamy and romantic imagery to inspire, delight and enchant. For who could fail to be delighted by a beautiful bride in such an enchanting city?
