Winter brings Spring: A rustic Easter inspired bridal photoshoot

The shoot was inspired by the proverb ‘No matter how long the winter, spring is sure to follow’.  
Kathryn Hopkins, super talented fine art wedding photographer, sent me photos of a naked  cake I made for a wedding she photographed last year. You can see some beautiful images on Style me Pretty here. I literally fell in love with her style so I asked her if she would be interested in collaborating on a spring inspired editorial, which I wanted to be very organic and natural.  Suppliers bought this together with the use of natural textures and surfaces, such as rings inspired by twigs and sycamore seeds, flowing calligraphy on the stationery, and dresses in soft lace and silk.  These elements where combined with items that symbolised spring to us; the little eggs and birds.  The proverb inspired Rebecca Avery Flowers to forage for the remains of winter and combine with lots of foliage, keeping flowers to a minimum, something often seen at the beginning of spring as everything starts to bloom.  Make up was kept dewy and natural, and the hair in a soft roll and tuck design with delicate plaits to compliment the detail of the lace dress. Here is the result. I hope you lovelies like it. Thank you Fern from Rock My Wedding for the feature. 
A bientôt
Lau xoxo
