At the end of the day, I think that many brides want to look like royalty on their wedding day. We may not go as far as to don a princess tiara, but that dream of walking down the aisle, at the center of attention with a glass of champagne in one hand, and prince charming on the other, is a very special moment that many brides dream of. This bridal shoot by Athalia's Photography and Chic and Unique Event Design celebrates the modern regalness and glamour that we've all come to know, love and appreciate since William and Kate's royal wedding several months ago.
Showcasing a beautiful array of dramatic bridal headpieces and accessories by Powder Blue Bijoux, this avant-garde bridal shoot is a lovely, affordable example of how to turn a bride into a modern princess! The grandeur mansion venue, complete with crystal chandeliers and stunning light shining through floor-to-ceiling windows, is the perfect setting for this royal-inspired bridal shoot. Floral designer Just Fresh Concept, worked with a royal inspired color palette of fuschia, sapphire blue, purple and silver to also create some beautiful bouquets and floral centerpieces, which were a perfect compliment to the brides' stylish wedding gowns by San Patrick by Pronovias, provided by Mia Boutique.
Overall, I was really impressed with the high attention to detail and the beautiful styling of each of the brides - the gorgeous hairpieces matched with the light and floaty gowns, the luxurious setting and photos captured by Julin Lee of Athalia's Photography (who also, by the way, did a styled shoot inspired by The Black Swan earlier this year that's definitely worth taking a look at!).
