One of my favourite things about this industry is that over the years I have met and worked with some of the loveliest people you can imagine. Most recently, we’ve had a couple of interns around the virtual halls of SBB HQ, and one of them is bridal designer, Simoné Meyer. Under her previous label name, Adore Me, she’s already been part of the SBB sponsor family for some time, but she’s just relaunched under her own name: Simoné Meyer Bridal Design. I’m so thrilled for her! Not only does Simoné make gorgeous, on-trend, whimsical gowns, but she’s recently expanded her talents into the bridal party too, especially bridesmaids of the flowergirl variety. I KNOW how many of you are looking for gorgeous flowergirl dresses – well, look no further! These gowns made quite a splash at the recent bridal expo, and today, along with a couple of Simoné’s beautiful wedding dresses, they’re making their debut here on SBB. That would have made this elegant bridal shoot lovely on its own, but add in some fabulous wedding inspiration in the form of sweetly organic florals, a table decked out in trendy marble and copper, and the warmth of candlelight bringing both come to life in these photographs by Lindy Kriek, and you have something special. Congrats, Simoné – we can’t wait to see your new business go from strength to strength!
Recently marble has been making a bit of a design splash in wedding world. I couldn’t think of a better way to put a twist on classic monochrome, and when you add in a hint of the softest blush, you have a new twist on the classic but a bit been-there-done-that blush and grey palette too. I especially love the idea of having all the big colour blocks – linens, bridesmaid dresses, flowers, etc. stick with the white and pale grey look, and then having the bride wear an ethereal blush gown. The trick in general is to keep things white and bright, letting marble’s cold palette work for you and its pretty texture keep things interesting, and then warm things up with the lightest touch of metallics and pink. The result is trendy but timeless – the perfect combo!
