Light Catcher – Delicate Darkness, contrasting wearable bridal inspiration.

Light Catcher – Delicate Darkness were the outcome of two shoots on one day.

With an amazing team consisting of stylist, Lucy Loves Bridal armed with multiple dresses from The Mews Bridal, Notting Hill plus dream duo Louise Seymour (MUA) and Jo Irving (Lovehair) we channeled our vision to create two contrasting looks.

For Light Catcher, using model Stephanie from BMA, with her English rose skin and blonde hair, I wanted to echo the softness and capture her on the distressed white brick wall. This helped to create the texture and ensured the end look wasn’t too polished along with statement jewellery.

Soft, muted colours were used in the florals including ranunculus bundles in the hair.

Layered lace, Freya Rose mother of pearl heeled shoes and ceramic hair accessories from Luna Bea complimented the overall look.

With bridal two pieces being very much on trend, the Moonflower (above, right) from Elizabeth Stuart was a nod to this – a great option for a bride wanting to wear a classic look but still on trend.

In contrast Delicate Darkness was about the flip side of Light Catcher, but showing this look could still be effortlessly beautiful. Some elements were brought over from the Light Catcher look including the statement jewellery.

I loved Ashleys ethnic look and we exposed her tattoos to push the laid back luxe and rock chic combo. In order to accentuated this look we used denim and biker boots, then the glitter Alexander McQueen trainers with the Delphine Manivet jumpsuit – the ultimate. Whats not to love?!

Luna Bea’s ceramic hair pieces were used in a more dynamic style, and the florals were a deeper palette.
