bridal boudoir – morning of the wedding

The morning of your wedding is the build up to your big day. All your nearest and dearest are around you and you have to try your best to stay calm. Emily put together this beautiful shoot to capture those cherished moments of the calm before the storm.

From Emily: “Inspired by the French confidence and romantic culture – I wanted to design a shoot that encompassed the emotion that can sometimes be lost during the morning of the wedding, due to rushed moments. Expressing all of the reflection, love, and preparation that happens in the early wakings of that monumental day.”

From Emily:“The morning of a wedding can be full of chaos and worry that can quickly take over the joy that is marriage. By choosing talented and organized vendors, the bride then places all of that worry into their hands. She is able to let all of that stress wash away and truly live in the moment.”

Emily tells us: “I imagine this bride has chosen to have an intimate wedding, which gives her and the photographer a chance to connect on a more personal level. The photographer beautifully captures the bride patiently anticipating the reunion with her love.”

From Emily: “She reads a letter filled with joyful memories from the groom and is reassured that this day will be just perfect. She is seen reflecting on their relationship just as her reflection can be seen in the mirror. She is relaxed and excited for the wonderful life ahead.”
