These pretty + inked brides bring just the right amount of edgy while still rocking the girly look. These brides showcase how to embrace nature and punk glamour at the same time! We especially love the single fern fronds as a wedding bouquet.
We are fascinated with the juxtaposition of classical veils and lace gowns intertwined with dyed green hair and boots. The jewellery is also a lovely mix – medallion necklaces and jewelled head band beside the more traditional diamond ring. And, of course, pretty + inked!
Tattoos can be a real problem when shopping for your bridal gown – the last thing you want is half a tattoo peeking out of your lace. The gowns here allow for inked to be part of the bridal style.
When you think about it – it’s strange how we are always trying to pigeonhole what ‘type’ of style a wedding will be. What this editorial does is ask us to rethink the bridal image and perhaps replace it with an eclectic mix of classical and edgy. Which is really what all of us are – a bit of the past and the future. Even as brides!
PS – Also can we talk about how ironic it is that the model holding the ferns is named Fern? There is a metaphor there somewhere!
