(On) location, location, location! A sizzling-hot, behind-the-scenes peek at a photoshoot with Ivory & Co in Barbados…
Ever wondered what life is like on the road as a wedding photographer? We caught up with the hottest new photographers, Essex-based New Pixels Photography, and stunning wedding dress designers, Ivory & Co, for the inside scoop and a look through the lens. From Essex to Barbados (a mere hop, skip and a jump), we love the intimate and full-of-fun feel from these stunning shots. Perfectly capturing every detail of these beautiful gowns – as well as the sensational backdrop – the heat and the passion and the sheer enjoyment of these images positively leaps off the page! Wish you’d been there? So do we!
If you’re planning a wedding abroad, these gorgeously glamorous, yet easy-to-wear gowns from Ivory & Co, deserve your full attention. Just take a look for yourself…
We love this softer bridal look, perfect for a wedding in warmer weather (and for dancing on the beach!). Light and floaty, yet still chic and glamorous, the subtle gold band is perfect for co-ordinating an accent theme around, and the subtle lace detailing makes this bang on trend. Barbados beautiful!
It’s not often we’re allowed a glimpse at what goes on behind the camera on the sensational shoots we showcase here at Love Our Wedding, so this is a real treat! As these images here show, a lot of work is invested in ensuring the images you see show the dresses off to best effect. This magnificent creation from Ivory & Co is being assessed to decide how best to show off that gorgeous back… we love the hint of tiny buttons!
We love these ‘before and after’ shots from the New Pixels team. This look is particularly striking for a beach wedding: in light tulle and chiffon, the gown is ideally suited for the beach and will, crucially, travel well to avoid looking creased and crumpled. The beautiful detail on the bodice and neckline keeps this dress glamorous and HOW fabulous does this relaxed, ‘hair-down’ style look in this setting?!
The photography team have their work cut out for them here! Improvising a bridesmaid’s role to perfection, we love how they inadvertently showcase this gown’s sensationally seductive back and beautiful lace train. The more fitted silhouette and flash of flesh makes this style both high-end glamour and beach-babe temptress! That’s quite a feat!
The sweetheart neckline will always be a perennial big-day style choice, and we love Ivory & Co’s take on this classic in soft creamy-peach tones combined with layers of tulle. Perfect for the free-spirited bride (with a cracking pair of shoulders!).
These rare, impromptu, and off-the-cuff shots are SO important for brides to see. Just look at how this beautiful dress ‘works’ in a traditionally non-wedding type environment – sitting on a tree, no less! A top tip from Love Our Wedding – as this photograph shows – is to try on your dress and behave like a normal human being! To laugh, to bend over, to sit, to dance in your dress! We’re all tempted to dry on a stunning gown and think we have to behave like a doll or a princess. But Ivory & Co show us here how important it is to be comfortable in your dress just being your wonderful self… and that means moving! We LOVE this picture and this dress!
