Lucky Sixpence Bridal recently made the move from London to the creative haven of Margate on the Kent coast. To celebrate the move, founder Anna wanted to do something to showcase the beauty of the area and the local creativity and so this shoot was born!
Our reader’s love to see pets in the spotlight, we know because you told us so in our recent survey, sotoday we are delighted to share another wedding with you featuring a well loved family pet and we know this one is really going make you ‘squeal’ with excitement!
Upon seeing a shoot like today’s, I often wonder where the designer found their inspiration? As a creative myself, I usually find inspiration from all sort of places, usually when I least expect it? So I asked Julie Crawford, both designer and photographer of today’s shoot, how she found the inspiration for this styled shoot?
Talking of inspiration if your looking for inspiration for alternative wedding readings, make sure you read the poem at the end of this post, thoughtfully created by the dress designer at ‘Dreamers and Lovers’.
“Big Sur is lush and magical so I wanted to create a shoot that represented how I feel when I see a photograph of the beautiful California coast with the turquoise waters and jagged edges.” She began.
“I chose this location because it is one of the most beautiful places to witness! I journeyed on a 25-day road trip by myself and drove all the way across the country to photograph the shoot. My passion is adventure, love, and art; so I use all aspects when I design shoots for other creatives.”
“I worked tightly with a group of amazingly talented wedding artists across the nation to bring this shoot to life. The color palette of pinks and greens brings forth the tropical design along with keeping it every bit bohemian with a huge chunks of crystals, vintage china, gold geometric pieces a floral crown and a handmade dress from Dreamers and Lovers who also wrote the poem below.”
“We wanted to appeal to free spirited couples who aren’t afraid to shine boldly – in both love and color. The real life couple photographed here could not have fit the vibe more perfectly. I’m all about the wild couples who love from the soul. Magic.”
“When I create shoots – especially over 2500 miles away with people I’ve never met – I never know truly how it will play out, but I promise it always works out exactly how it is suppose to every single time. Working with other creatives with the same passion for the love and art that empowers me, it is almost as if the stars align, it all falls together perfectly, and we create a beautiful thing.”
This styled pool party elopement was dreamt up by event designer L Elizabeth Events, photographed at the trendy Hotel Valley Ho in Scottsdale, followed by a getaway in a vintage Ford and sunset photos at nearby Papago Park. The couple featured are real life newlyweds, so was a great excuse for the bride to wear something she had originally wanted to wear for her wedding but wasn’t quite right the right fit – her grandmother’s wedding dress! Which just so happened to be the perfect style for the retro vibes and their vintage getaway car.
