Using a bridal veil or hair accessory for your boudoir shoot is such a lovely idea and this gorgeous inspiration shoot from Izzie Rae Photography shows three different styles that you can utilize: timeless heirloom, simple modern, and vintage bohemian.
From Izzie: “Since the beginning of time, wedding veils and headpieces are something that have played key roles. Covering or dressing your head can symbolize vulnerability, modern femininity, modest beauty, or create a timeless look.”
From Izzie: “The timeless heirloom veil holds a special place in my heart. Heirlooms are amazing because they hold a story… a love story. I love that! If you discover their story or see the story come to life by opening your great grandmother’s wedding album then that heirloom is treasured that much more and plays a special role in your wedding day. Not only is it unique but it’s a part of history that is reborn.
The vintage bohemian look is for all the lovely brides who aren’t afraid to create beautiful things from everyday pieces, have a deep love affair with vintage or vintage-inspired treasures, and want to be anything but traditional. This look was inspired from a beautiful lace garment. It was too beautiful to be worn as an everyday piece (or even for an occasion)… it needed to be special…. set apart… and anything but traditional.
The simple modern look was inspired from the lovely Anthropologie. Everything in that store is saturated in an aura of loveliness, especially their accessories. From the moment I spotted this piece I knew it would be a perfect match for something modern but still hold a feminine beauty. Anyone who loves simple beauty as much as I do will love this look!”
