A bridal shoot with squad goals in Hertfordshire

10 Sep 2019

Bringing a whole new meaning to the term 'bride tribe', this shoot celebrates the leading lady and her varying styles

What was the inspiration behind the shoot?

We wanted to take the Bride Tribe to a new level, showcasing fashion-focussed gowns for the modern bride. But the key ingredient to this shoot was confidence and sass from our squad of models, enhanced with a touch of ‘Instaglam’ styling.



Tell us a little bit about the shoot location and why it was chosen

We shot in a number of locations around St Albans. We love our city and were keen to show it off. Our hero location was the newly opened St Albans Museum + Gallery which is also a wedding venue: fresh, modern, quirky and flooded with natural light.



What did you choose for the flower arrangements?

Whilst strutting through the town we photo-bombed a local flower stall, standing proud with a rustic bouquet of sunflowers wrapped in brown paper.



What kind of look did you want to achieve with the make-up, hair and outfits?

All the models wore stunning wedding gowns by Eliza & Ethan or Catherine Parry supplied and styled by What Alice Wore, a fashion-focussed bridal boutique for the modern bride, newly opened in St Albans. The models' hair and make-up was deliberately ‘undone’ and flirtatious - sultry bronzes, dewy skin and loose waves completed the picture.





What kind of accessories were used to create these looks and why?

Each look was elevated with stunning pieces from Kings Hill Jewellery: fiery opals, minimalist pendants and bespoke sets inspired by the city itself. A Catherine Parry dress was styled with a single tier veil which brought movement and grace to each shot, and an Eliza & Ethan gown was taken to another level with a removable tulle overskirt. Ideal for those brides keen to switch up their look.
