Dreamy Magnolia Bridal Inspiration

Dreamy Magnolia Bridal Inspiration034

This dreamy magnolia bridal inspiration shoot comes to us all the way from beautiful Poland today. The beautiful blossoming magnolia trees adding a sense of silence, of the beauty of nature, the trees humming as their buds bloom, the gentle blooms casting their magical shapes throughout the shoot. Quite the way to inspire a wedding don’t you think?

Photographer Marifoto  teamed up with Love Prints Studio, Moons Varsovie, Decolove, Slodka Gospocha and models Sylvia & Eve to craft an inspiration shoot inspired by this beautiful blooms in a botanical garden near Warsaw. The magnolia tree alley taking centre stage as the beautiful vintage style picnic and vignette turned into a focal point to enhance the beauty of the blooms.

Shoot producer Love Prints Studio tells, “I’ve always dreamt about organizing a photo shoot which will carry a note of mystery with itself, one where not everything will be immediately obvious, one that will charm with its effortlessness. Nostalgia, sensuousness, a tale where feeling plays the main role. To collaborate I invited a wonderful photographer Marysia, who as it turned out wished to create a story like this as much as I did. And it is through her fantastic intuition of emotion and scenery that our mutual dream actually became reality and the two models Sylwia and Ewa – through their delicacy turned the looking at the pictures into a journey to a far away, dreamy world. ”

Lady Petrova “As You Wish” Bridal Collection

by | Bridal Fashion, Bride


HyperFocal: 0

With dreams of fairy-tales and whimsy the debut bridal collection of designer Lady Petrova takes its inspiration from that classic line from The Princess Bride “As You Wish”.

With her own whimsical fashion label many years in existence, designer Petrova Hammond struggled to find just the right whimsical, romantic wedding gown that reflected her own personality when she married her teenage sweetheart earlier this year. Her dreams and desires led her to accidentally design an entire bridal collection, one which we are so happy to debut today!

Designed with the urban princess in mind, the collection is filled with the dreamy fabrics of vintage lace, tulle, point d’esprit and elegant silks. Petrova’s signature quirkiness coming through in tiered tulle skirts, capes, pockets and  gauze sleeves.  If the current collection isn’t quite your style, Lady Petrova can create something completely custom just for you.

The gowns will be available to order from the Lady Petrova website.
