Are you a Destination Bride?, this post is for you. Taking you away from the January blues, we bring you a slightly sunnier destination. Ever dreamt of a wedding on a Greek island?. Yes us to, and today’s post is dedicated to a styled shoot in Mykonos town. As ever our go-to stylist Anna from Kiss from Fleur has brought us the most swoon-worthy images to lust after.
WORDS FROM ANNA
”Our destination bride shoot was named ‘Apotheosis of Simplicity’. We were inspired by romance that breaks conventions. Love and imperfect beauty found in shadows and dreams. Windswept landscapes and spontaneous adventures. An ethereally divine sheer silk gown with delicate handmade crochet detailing. Amidst exposed washed white brick walls, simple yet elegant. Inspired by movement and fluidity, hugging our muses body before blown away by the island of the wind.”
Anna continues ”Taken away by the serene beauty, we found in this intimate ceremony place. Bleached out of all colour, infinite light and tranquil enchantment. A majestic medieval cathedral, located along Mykonos Town shoreline, represents itself spectacular in simplicity, staged against colourless silvery water. Offering a mood of balance, sparsity and purity – an antidote to everything that is over-styled in weddings, with props, clutter and trends, and distracts from the moment itself.”
”Pulled from another realm, a rare barnacle statement headpiece offers unexpected styling and stunning extension of theme for a ceremony by the sea. Oversized it seems as it was found in the deep sea of the ancient Hellenic Nereids, and it works beautifully against our bride´s sheer silk dress and takes her to a divine level.”
We are just totally in love with how the shoot has shown how one dress can be worn and styled in so many different ways.
