bridal portraits on the streets of venice

For this beautiful bridal inspiration shoot photographer Katy Lunsford travelled to Venice with Claire Pettibone’s stunning Constance gown in tow. The flooded streets create a sense of romance and the early morning light plays delightfully with the textures and tones of this enchanting city and creamy lace of the wedding dress.

To capture a sense of drama Katy added a full-length veil attached to an intricate headpiece. For a more bohemian vibe the model wore a handcrafted circlet composed of clay flowers, beads, and jewels with a ribbon tie & finally, for a glamorous theatrical feeling, operatic cream gloves and a fur wrap were added.

Such captivating portraits and inspiration – and those vintage shoes? Perfection! Be sure to check out another Venetian inspiration shoot here.
