I’m so thrilled to welcome Australia’s Hitched Magazine to the United States! Now with issue 3 you can get Hitched in newsstands and bookstores across the nation. This magazine is a breath of fresh air with its glamorous indie wedding features and jaw-dropping styled shoots.
Today’s Bird of Paradise indie bridal fashion shoot by Lara Hotz Photography is just one of the many amazing features you’ll find in this inspirational new magazine!
From Amy of Teeki Designs – “In every shoot that I style I like to feature one or two things that perhaps are not a typical trend in the bridal industry. For example the beautiful corsage paired with the floral gown from Jennifer Gifford. I can imagine that it would be beautiful to walk down the aisle holding hands with whomever is giving you away, perhaps your Mum and Dad on both sides? With a corsage you won’t have to worry about a big bouquet getting in the way.
Evolving from the flower crown I explored the idea of the combination of fresh flowers teamed with a glitzy headpiece. A lot of brides come to me and they torn as they love fresh flowers but also want something that will serve as a keepsake and something that is a bit more glam. Why not combine the two?
Gold and sequins are having a big influence on fashion and I wanted to showcase how this can be interpreted into bridal in an understated and elegant way. Another big inspiration for this shoot is pineapples. It seems to be the year of the pineapple! They are popping up all over the place in interior design and filtering through to fashion. We showcased gold spray painted pineapples in this shoot because who doesn’t love them!?”
