Culture Bridal Couture

For as long as I can remember, when I’ve wanted bridal inspiration in the form of gowns with a really unique hit, I’ve looked to Culture Bridal Couture (formally Culture Shock).

The gowns always have this amazing twist that makes them really unique- Japanese fabric tied in an obi bow, Indian beading and beautiful silks.

Each gown created by Culture Bridal Couture seems to beautifully capture the essence of a cultural influence in a graceful way.

I have been enamored with this photo since I spotted it on the Green Wedding Shoes Blog.

There’s something about Carly’s feather like dress and the composition that takes my breath away.  See more of their wedding captured by Marie Labbancz here.

I fell in love with the whimsical nature of this engagement shoot when Amy Benjamin sent it to me. So many sweet details and a lot of love!

Taking place on the grounds of Sydney University, Benjamin Sax created the invitations while Amy did the makeup (Amy runs her own makeup business Ask Me Makeup). Megan and Luke plan to marry with a wedding in the colours of chocolate brown, peach and latte so the engagement shoot featured these colours. The apple picnic shots were a nod to Amy and Megan’s love of the Twilight books.
