The Modern, Minimalist, Free-spirited and Bohemian Bride

It feels like we’ve been rather spoilt this month by those gorgeous editorial photoshoots, but this one is really something special.
Featuring with the coolest, hippest designs, supplied by two fashion-forward British bridal boutiques (Rock the Frock Bridal and The Bottom Drawer Bridal), this wedding dress collections will give inspiration to those free spirited bride to seek a contemporary and minimalist look on their big day. If you dare to be different, you don’t need wear a big summer dress or go traditional. You can wear high heel gold boots, bold lace, jumpsuits or silk slip dresses if you want to. The choice is all up to you. 
“The shoot was aimed to showcase a contemporary minimal bridal style. With five beautiful outfits at our disposal, all featuring clean, simply lines and uncomplicated but gorgeous fabrics, we wanted to make bridal be as slick and fierce in real-life as it is in magazines and online!”
“The Little Lending Company bedecks the space with hanging cube structures and stems, painted soft pink linens and large fan-like tone-on-tone patterns from Swaffham and Fakenham Florist. The colour was soft yet striking, with softer lilacs and dried Norfolk reeds mixed with too-good-to-be-true orchids and copper sprayed foliages.”
“We followed this subtle colour palette into the tablescape. Printed menus with gold characters from Nats Paper Studio sat in modern light-colored wood holders alongside beige crockery, hand-dyed linen napkins and copper cutlery, while mixed square candles and copper tea light holders finished the nostalgia feel. To add height, we used Ester and Erik tapered candles – every wedding stylist’s go-to candles right now!”
“Our second set-up against a pre-fabricated wooden wall also featured this super textured floral mix, where giant sylvan bundles of peach tones, whites and golds sprung from the floor amongst white pillar candles and from the wooden shelf. A bouquet made of only a couple of orchid stems and some reeds highlighted the slightly surreal minimalist editorial look, so as not to detract from the outfits, and single stems were also used to add some height to the hand-brushed and dappled copper tiered cakes by Sugar Buttons Cakes.”
“We matched liquid silk Sassi Holford slip cheap summer dresses with daring organic-shaped gold earrings and loose, laidback hair, whilst Velvet Johnstone’s sophisticated wide-legged jumpsuit was styled with lovely bubble pleats and Ritual Unions’ cutting edge lace designs gave effortless luxe. Gleaming warm tones on the eyes and lips for the make-up are just perfect for every style, which we kept creating and adding to for a more fantastic almost day-to-night feel, finishing in a catching oxblood lip.”
