The White Queen Bridal Editorial lookbook

March 13, 2017

The Marie Antoinette Style lookbook. Inspired by my love for anything regal and my obession with my french heritage I couldn’t resist styling and photographing this gorgeous opulent high fashion bridal editorial.

The specific style choices where ininspired by the hair & make up of Marie Antoinette and the Rococo era,  to showcase a couture bridal style for the fabulously flamboyant and unique bride. The style elements include avant garde hair, opulent couture gowns and all white on white details. It screams drama, theatrics and luxury because every bride should feel like a queen on her wedding day.

This styling could not have worked as well as it did without my collaboration with Adri Hugo and her creative genius which pulled together these wonderfully unique powdered looks for our models, with creative avant garde hairstyles and a demure neutral colour palette.

These handpicked Kobus Dippenaar Atelier couture gowns where an intricate part of the styling. With detailed beading, big skirts and luxury fabrics we were able to showcase a contemporary regal elegance that captures the opulence Marie Antoinette was all about. The style is very specific to the bride who enjoys the finer things in life, good food and Haute Couture fashion. She rejoices in feeling fabulous, unique and is definitely a trendsetter.

The light and atmosphere created by the romantic arches in the Pavilion at Belair Country House  was perfect as a backdrop for the extravagance of the floral table arrangements designed by the talented Gerrit and his team from the Beanstalk Group. Incorporating touches of gold in between the flowers and a draped floral design created a table set for a queen.   The exotic white orchids is an added luxury.

A beautifully textured draping bridal bouquet of the most opulent and romantic of flowers as a  statement piece to walk down the aisle with designed by the talented Jeanette from Paramithi: Flowers and Decor Design is the perfect accessory for the style conscious bride.
