A Dark & Dreamy Woodland Shoot by Melissa Beer
I love to collaborate with like-minded industry babes who just 'get' the W Collective aesthetic. It's all about being your own type of bride and using your bridal accessories to punctuate your outfit. When Melissa Beer got in touch I instantly loved her style of photography and couldn't wait to create some pieces based on the brief she provided. Melissa was looking for some black veils with a hint of sparkle and texture, so I created two simple drop veils that packed in plenty of drama.
The first was adorned with sparkling AB crystals - I took inspiration from embellished black veil Kaia Gerber wore at the Chanel Spring/Summer 2018 show for this - minimal, chic and impactful. The second veil featured velvet flocked polka dots - a very 1950s style fabric that fitted perfectly with the pin up/burlesque hair and makeup for the shoot.
I couldn't wait to see the outcome of this shoot, and I wasn't disappointed when I saw the final shots! The styling, the lighting, the ethos is spot on and Melissa has done an amazing job at capturing a mood. I'm an accessories girl, so the tassel earrings and platform heels really hit the nail on the head for me.
The hair, the makeup, the oversize bouquet, the pops of red! I am living for this vibe!
I love this as an alternative bridal look. Who says you can't wear a black wedding dress with red heels on your wedding day? Both of these black wedding veils are now available to buy on my Etsy store.. Click here to shop now.
