Siren Bridal Beach Shoot

Siren Bridal Beach Shoot

Mythological - Boho - Magic 

We dream of sandy toes and salty kisses after today's styled shoot. Taking us to the beach for a mythological, steampunk styled shoot with a touch of sparkle is a collaboration from some damn fine suppliers organised by Lisa from Lily Grace. 

Lisa tells us more about this fun, quirky bridal styled shoot…

I loved planning and hosting this shoot and really enjoyed collaborating with fellow artists.

So a little about
Siren song, we wanted to create a day full of fun with a hint of mythological, boho magic inspired by the goddesses of the sea a dash of steampunk and a sprinkling of sparkle.

Our colours were inspired by the Pantone colours Rose Quartz and Serenity Blue, so we used a soft blue, pale pink with a dash of hot pink to add a little drama, whites and gold.

The location was a stunning soft stretch of sand on the beach at Hornsea on the stunning East Yorkshire coastline.

As an event planner and designer I wanted to be able to show how important it is to have fun on your special day, and that your day should reflect you as a couple, your beliefs and so full of your own personalities, whether that be chic elegant glam, fun and vivid or downright quirky, just be you.

We had lots of fun that included fish and chips, silly smiles and getting wet, not to mention a sunburn that lasted for months lol.

In Greek Mythology the Sirens were beautiful, dangerous creatures of the sea. They were said to lure sailors in with their beautiful songs - a little lesson on Greek mythology there for you this Friday. 

Lisa has truly captured this Siren concept within this shoot. The brides are styled with quirky, almost marine accessories with captivating glitter makeup to bring a little mermaid glimmer to them. 

The beach shabby chic style has an injection of luxury by adding those metallic details. The rose gold sequin tablecloth and gold candle holders all adding to the little hints of sparkle. The pops of hot pink add a playful palette to the table with beautifully elegant rose gold macarons beautifully balanced echoing the table runner tone.
