Ethereal eucalyptus grove bridal inspiration

On the surface this editorial may seem like just another way to show off a pretty dress (in this case, Jenny Packham) in a dreamy setting (say, a eucalyptus grove). But if you stop at each of Whiskers and Willow Photography‘s images, you see all the little ways that Sweet Emilia Jane + team incorporated the ethereal feeling of love—rather than huge gestures or displays (which we love too)—so the bride and the setting could be a manifestation of that force.

This. Type and Title sure knew how to translate their concept to paper. So moody and delicate and lovely.

This quote inspired the shoot… Love is a force more formidable than any other. It is invisible—it cannot be seen or measured, yet it is powerful enough to transform you in a moment, and offer you more joy than any material possession could.—Barbara De Angelis

We wanted to incorporate other organic entities that are thought to hold energy and carry forces that may affect our behavior and our lives. These items represent the great power that love can have over each of us if we listen and let ourselves be moved by it. Cool concept, yeah?

Okay, yeah, showing off a Jenny Packham is never a bad thing either.

We were inspired by the force of love—an energy that we cannot see yet we can feel with every part of ourselves, an energy that can bring people and worlds together. We don’t necessarily know why we feel love or why it can create such an overwhelming feeling to be with another person but, nevertheless, we know it exists even without seeing or understanding it.

Thanks to the team below for the sweet reminder!

Great looking photos! To me these are much more elegant with the outside setting. The contrast of colors is amazing! Great job to Whiskers and Willow Photography for bringing out the essence of beauty.
