Happy Friday gorgeous peeps! I hope you have all had a good week and are looking forward to the weekend.
We have a beautiful and unconventional bridal shoot to share with your eyes this morning, sent all the way from Tel Aviv in Israel by wedding photographer Noa Magger and featuring the most stunning lace bohemian wedding dresses by Lee Kodo. We are in love with them!
This experimental shoot was all about pushing creative boundaries, experimenting with different colour combinations and encouraging brides to be themselves on their wedding day. To not conform to the norm unless that is what truly represents them. It features a tattooed bride with gorgeous pink hair, amazing boho wedding dresses (our favourite is the second dress – we want it!), bold and confident makeup and pretty flowers. It’s sexy, sassy, pretty and delicate all at the same time which is one of the reasons we love it.
Noa talks us through her inspiration for the shoot, the suppliers involved and how she hopes to inspire brides to be themselves on their wedding day….
We Created Art….
The idea for this shoot actually came from the location! I found this amazing space which I called “The Secret Garden,” like the best selling book, because it was in a friend’s back yard and it was hidden, serene and just the perfect garden. I instantly felt I have to shoot something (or someone) in it. Instead of waiting to book a wedding in that area and shooting a couple there, I decided to have some fun with some extremely talented friends.
We wanted to create this ethereal vibe, a bit rocknroll and fairy-like. We opened a board on Pinterest and the ideas started flowing. We talked about colour themes – burgundy, black and white, something a bit “dark and twisty”, as Meredith Grey once said. We wanted to respect the environment and this amazing place we found. So the colours were selected specifically not to interfere with all the greenery. Plus we had gorgeous Dafna – Model, MUA and my own personal muse. She portrayed my thoughts so accurately and the dresses fit her perfectly.
The shoot itself was like a journey. We scouted for specific spots that will convey what we feel and how we wanted to show the dresses.
I was hoping to inspire brides to dare themselves like my friends and I did with this shoot. If you want to make something beautiful – go out and do it. Give it your own interpretation. Be yourself. That’s the most important lesson I learned throughout this whole process. I got out of my comfort zone, had a fun afternoon with a few walking-inspirations (talking about the other suppliers, of course) and created art. We created ART. It’s daring, unconventional, experimental, it pushes you to do great things.
