Get ready to start your week off by being completely swept away by this romantic English bohemian bridal shoot from Plenty to Declare Photography! She and the lovely model took to the meadows near Royal Windsor to capture a lovely spring day in the English countryside. Martyn Crossley, a local Windsor florist, created two dreamy watercolor-inspired floral looks to complement the romantic, bohemian bridal looks found in local vintage shops.
Bridal look number one would look perfectly in place for a Jane Austen-inspired wedding, with a romantic, sweeping skirt and handmade lace at the collar and cuffs. They paired it with a wildflower bouquet and floral wreath in delicate pinks and purples, along with a dreamy blue shawl! Ranunculus, eucalyptus, and both French and English lavender bring to mind a cottage garden in the first bloom of spring. I love the utter romance of the A-line skirt caught by the breeze as she wanders through the meadows!
The second look came to Daria of Plenty to Declare with a story to tell – the romantic lace gown was handmade in the 50’s by a friend’s grandmother while working as a dressmaker in Paris. She put her love and skill into the dress she would wear on her own wedding day, and lovingly preserved it. I’m honored to have the chance to breathe new life into an heirloom gown by featuring it today! Martyn Crossley paired the second look with a simple bouquet of Sterling roses in pale lavender, tied with a ribbon of spring green silk. The floral lace pattern of the gown and long lace sleeves brings the whole look beautifully full circle for today’s brides!
