styled shoot: london bride magazine {couture}

There’s no real wedding for you today, but to make up for it I’m sharing not one, but two stunning styled shoots from Fiona Kelly Photography.  The shoot, which was for the London Bride Magazine, is a celebration of our capital city and some of it’s famous features!

Yesterday I shared a glamorous vintage look, with a tea length lace-detailed dress and bold red colour pops which I thought would make a beautiful look for a winter wedding.  This morning, we’re stepping into summer with this next, contemporary couture look! With a stunning Ian Stuart Bride dress, this look has bags full of confidence and attitude, perfect for the contemporary cool bride.

A bold & striking makeup look and big hair works beautifully with the ‘wow’ factor of the dress, which itself is a modern twist on the classic ‘fairytale’ look with the soft oversized flowers running down the skirt, like an oversized bustle.

For a fashionista bride, this straight-from-the-catwalk look is bound to impress!

Check back this afternoon for the third, classic look, shot in one of the pods on the London Eye!

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

I'm also a co-founder at The Brand Studio, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive where I support and nurture wedding pros building industry leading businesses. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
