A Porcelain Tale inspiration shoot
The shoot features some great pieces from Bonzie Designs – an Irish independent design label with romantic vintage appeal that utilizes modern technologies and centuries old techniques.
Pamela from Vintage Bride also added to the gorgeous fashion seen here by sourcing beautiful and delicate Edwardian tea dresses, which she painstakingly restored to their former glory just in time for the shoot.
We can’t decide which of these headpieces is our favorite. Which could you see yourself wearing on your big day?
From her Moth and BayLeaf studio in Cork City, Lisa created a selection of precious, unique and eccentric headpieces for the shoot. All her designs are created using a mix of vintage and new materials, organic feathers and inorganic reproductions.
Shane and Pearl definitely have a knack for creating stunning work. We can only hope they’ll collaborate once more! We absolutely adore the handcrafted voguish sort of antiquarian charm depicted in these photos. So much inspiration to pull from this shoot!
A little added bonus – a moving picture of the shoot by Rodolphe of Best Day Productions!
Thank you Pearl, Shane + Team!
