Timeless Elegance Bridal Inspiration

We’re ending our wedding week off with some bridal inspiration! And whether you’re the kind of gal who wants to walk down the aisle like it’s a red carpet and you’re a Hollywood siren, or rock a more classic, understated vibe, you’ll find some ideas for both bridal fashion and hair & makeup here! Set in the old world elegance of Nantes Estate and photographed by Samantha Jackson Photography, this shoot all about timeless glamour!

Here’s some background from the creative team:
Style, clean lines, and classic effortless elegance. A bride that loves these characteristics for her wedding day is a bride who knows that long-lasting style is always simple. This shoot celebrates the bride who wants her wedding to be glamorous and chic, but still stylish and classic.We focused on the venue, makeup and dresses to show these elements off at their best.

Our inspiration was the venue, Nantes Estate. Through its doors is a classic, elegant 17th century European-style space, full of rare finds and fine touches. We wanted to combine classic vintage with glamour to create three distinct looks. The dresses were breathtaking: Damaris, a dramatic fit-to-flare A-line gown with illusion cap sleeves that taper into a sweetheart neckline; Esther, a daring mermaid dress with illusion side panels that lead to a sexy illusion back; Sapphira, a modified A-line with vertically seamed ruffles, a ruched bodice and hand-beaded side panel. Hair and makeup ranged from a timeless upstyle with striking eyes and soft nude lip to Old Hollywood waves and red lip, and even a ‘vampy boho bride’ statement look for the free-spirited bride!
