Bridal Indulgence Photo Shoot: One Dress, Eight Looks

I love how bridal accessories can completely change the look of a wedding dress! And I have been really keen to demonstrate just how much they can. So I decided to style a photo shoot with just one wedding dress.

The photo shoot was held at Barnett Hill (where I'm getting married this year!) and I asked beautiful blogger Gabrielle from A Glass of Ice to model the wedding dress for me. I chose to use the Caspia gown by Willowby for this shoot and then brought along five different bridal accessories to style with the dress and create several different looks. I absolutely love how one dress can look so different depending how it has been styled and it allows you to change your bridal look throughout your day. Let me know your favourite look!

Look One: The Caspia gown...pure elegance and simplicity. Featuring classic Georgette Poly over Stretch Satin Lining, it is the perfect for accessorising with its chic silhouette.

Look Two: The first accessory I added was one of my veils. I opted for a full length veil scattered with sparkles, to add a bit of drama and volume to the overall look. Perfect for walking down the aisle and for some great photos!

Look Three: – Adding a belt to the dress emphasised Gabrielle’s small waist as well as bringing in a bit of detail.  This particular belt is from the Wtoo collection.  A number of different belt styles could work well with this dress such as a thinner belt or one with more sparkle on it.  The possibilities are endless!

Look Four: These straps from Watters are perfect for adding some glitz and glamour to your wedding dress! They can be stitched onto your wedding gown or made detachable so you could add them to your gown for a more glamorous look in the evening.

Look Five: By wearing an overskirt, it means you can have two different dress shapes on the day. This is the Windsor overskirt by Wtoo. I’ve kept the straps for this look for some glitz and glamour.

Look Six: for this look, I’ve removed the straps and added a belt from the Willowby collection to the skirt. This is perfect if you prefer to go strapless. You could then remove the skirt but keep the belt for a different look later in the day.

Look Seven: a lace bolero is perfect if you want to be a bit more covered during your ceremony. This one is from the Wtoo collection. I’ve kept the overskirt for a romantic look of lace and tulle.

Look Eight: for the final look, I removed the overskirt for a sleeker style, but kept the lace bolero. Again, this could work well for during the ceremony and then you could remove the bolero for after and replace with a belt or straps for a bit of glitz and glamour!

If you would like to try any of the looks in the photo shoot, please get in touch to book an appointment.

A big thank you to everyone who was involved in the shoot.
