So, there we were, happily flicking through the new issue of VOW magazine (one of our favourite reads, it has to be said) and what did we find? Only our rather gorgeous Charlie Brear styled shoot!
The photographer for this styled shoot, the wonderful Jasmine Motley De Silva was a Perfect Day bride herself and wore a Charlie Brear dress for her own wedding so it seemed only right that we used these gowns for our shoot. The photography from the shoot is raw fashion in style and this contrasts with the bridal look. We love pushing the boundaries with our styled shoots – they’re such a perfect opportunity to try new things and shake up the traditional wedding look.
We worked to the ‘less is more’ maxim, stripping back the amount of props and styling tools were used to let the Charlie Brear gowns grab all of the attention. It was also a pleasure to work with the super talented bridal make-up artist Katy Pheiffer who absolutely understands just what a bride needs to look and feel fabulous. It was such a joy to watch her transforming our models (one of whom we’re sure you’ll recognise when you read the complete feature!)
But, the dresses were most definitely the stars in this shoot. Charlie Brear wedding dresses suit so many different types of bride and they bring confidence to whoever is lucky enough to wear one. We just adore the combination of high fashion elements and traditional bridal styling cues that Charlie combines in all of her designs. It’s no wonder every Charlie Brear collection is incredibly popular with Perfect Day brides.
