When I think of Asian wedding fashion I think of the most luxurious materials engulfed in bright and bold colours. An Asian bride always looks exquisite, oozing femininity without taking anything away from the traditional Asian styles.
Asian Wedding Fashion
Asian bridal wear is made up of lots of beautiful details from the wedding dress, to the hair and the many types of jewellery and accessories. Indian bridal wear has said to be embracing westernisation; with each wedding season we are seeing more vibrant and extravagant frocks that compliment for colourful and exciting Shaadi.
Although Asian bridal wear is still looking very traditional designers are creating gowns that are modern and beautiful. Here are a few ideas taken from top clothing designer Rita Kumar in her spectacular Bridal Collection that has taken Asian wedding clothing by storm.
So we’ve all see OTHER people showing off images from boudoir shoots. How do they “dare to bare”? What do they do it for? Who wants to see those images?
Well today we are talking to Manchester photographer, Jenny McAvoy, who offers boudoir shoots at her studio and in the comfort of clients’ homes, to find out why people have boudoir shoots and to try and persuade you that it may just be something for you.
Boudoir Shoots – Dare to Bare
So first of all who has a boudoir shoot? Is it all bright young skinny things with body confidence to spare?
The answer is absolutely not. The boudoir shoots I do are really varied, but absolutely none of them are “model types”. I’ve photographed more mature ladies, shy brides-to-be, yummy mummies, the whole spectrum.
Why do these ladies have a boudoir shoot?
Well there are lots of reasons. It may be a confidence boost, an anniversary surprise for a loved one, a pre-wedding gift for a future spouse, a celebration of recent weight loss, or just because they want to feel fabulous.
Who are the images for?
They could be for a partner or purely for themselves. Remember ladies, we are never going to look the same as we do in this moment ever again. We might become smaller, larger, fitter, wobblier, definitely older, we may change our hair. Boudoir images can be just to freeze a moment in time, images to treasure in years to come. They can be used to show off a body you are proud of to the whole world. They may be a very private treasure for yourself or a loved one. Read more
So you have a winter wedding to attend. You may be the mother of the bride, or groom and don’t want to hide under a bundle of coats and winter woollies. Fear not. There is absolutely no need to. There is a ton of glamorous winter wedding fashion out there so that you can breeze through the chilly season looking and feeling fabulous.
The firs thing to know is that the majority of a winter wedding will take place indoors with central heating, or even roaring open fires. The ceremony will take place in a cosy room. Canapes will be served in a warm reception area. No photographer with half a brain cell is going to subject guests to lengthy outdoor shots of blue, goose pimpled skin and chattering teeth. Good news, as it means there is no need for thick, endless layers.
Glamorous Winter Wedding Fashion
I have opted for sparkle and sophistication. Classic gold and black and contrasting textures.
The dress has a flattering wrap style and ruching round the waist.
The bag can be used as a clutch or with the gold chain strap provided.
The shoes have a pretty rose pattern in metallic bronze and a low heel to withstand those many hours of standing and dancing.
The overall look is glamorous without being gaudy. Read more
We’ve all seen seaside themed weddings. Lots of nautical elements, maybe weathered wood and blue and white colour scheme. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Seaside weddings can be sophisticated and stylish, while still maintaining the connection with the beach.
I was inspired by this idea by the very fabulous Fairmont Newport beach hotel, a beachside West Coast hotel that oozes style and glamour and is perfect for a spot of seaside sophistication..
There are wedding styling images from the hotel that mirrored a styled shoot I was involved in recently. Sequinned table cloths and pastel shades created a luxe look that retained the beach feel.
My styled shoot combined the sequins with seaside hues of pastel blue, sand and blush pink.
The theme was continued in the cake designs using iridescent icing, ruffles and silver.
It is always a good idea to complement the hotel décor and the outside surroundings and the seaside sequins theme and colour palette will fit in perfectly with a sophisticated beach hotel. Read more
Planning Photography For The Wedding Day
Happy new year everyone. We are back with a bang. Straight into wedding planning and one of the thorny issues of wedding organisation. Planning wedding photography for the wedding day. There is so much choice, variety and variations of quality out there that choosing can cause headaches. Yet even after you have chosen, you still need to work with your photographer to get the best out of your wedding day images, without it impacting too much on your celebrations. So here is our guide to planning photography for the wedding day.
There are several ideal time frames a photographer will consider when planning for your wedding day. Most weddings tend to run a little behind schedule and the day also feels like it flies by. So here’s a look at your photographer’s ideal timeline.
Dress, Rings, Shoes, and Other Little Details
At Anna and Mina’s intimate wedding photos, at least an hour and a half is allocated for photographing details so that there is plenty of time to get the perfect shot of the rings, shoes, dress, bouquets, and other bits. Sometimes the hotel room can be too crowded or just unappealing, but taking the dress all the way down to the lobby or outside can be well worth the effort and time.
Allowing about 45 minutes to an hour of preparation is ideal for Reid Studios wedding photography in Melbourne. During this time close-ups of makeup and hair as well as those candid moments with groomsmen and bridesmaids as they get ready for the day are taken.
Straight after preparation is the best time to take individual portraits of the bride and groom, separately of course. Hair and makeup are completely fresh at this point and the day hasn’t run away with them yet.
