Oxana Ruckhaber of Minster Bridal Boutique in Wimborne, Dorset, breaks down all the aspects of this stunning shoot at The Italian Villa in Poole. 

The inspiration

To create fine art photography with Ann Aveyard and Minster Designs to use as inspiration for future brides. The bridal gown was especially designed and dyed in an ombré colour of dusky blue and grey. The idea of a bridal hat followed.

The hair and make-up

Tara chose soft grey hues on the eyes to create a romantic and dreamy feel that suited the style and colour of the dress. Hair was kept in a tradional bun by Laura, suitable for a hat.

The dress and accessories

We used our own designed dress with a very low back and soft tulle straps. A small A-line tulle skirt was kept very full to create the romantic vintage look and modernised in colours of ombré blue and grey. The bridal hat was created by Sofia as inspiration for an alternative look.
