So many thanks to Once Wed for this beautiful feature of my 2016 Headdressing Collections that were so beautifully captured by Los Angeles photographer Megan K. Sadler.
“This season I was captivated by the whimsical styles on the catwalks of Milan and Paris. As an admirer of the many lush period dramas on television, I was also thrilled to see the headdress become the most popular accessory on the red carpet.
I took all of that inspiration and disappeared into my studio. Working with these haute couture ideas and fashion trends I adapted them to bridal sensibilities. Each piece in the collection is a striking interpretation of classic beauty for the modern bride. Now is the perfect time for a bride to accessorize her look with flattering full crowns, circlet, or hair chains.
For the bride who wants a regal, dramatic feel there are headpieces made from hand-crafted metals that give off a soft, golden glow when they catch the light. A soft, delicate crown of hand-pressed silk flowers is for many the essence of romance. Better still, choose a headpiece that mixes metals and textures, as unique as the woman wearing it.
With the help of photographer Meghan K. Sadler, we captured the mood I was looking for. Shot in dark rooms on a moody, overcast day, the rose golds and jewels came popping through the natural dim light.”
Many thanks to Bella Belle for lending us their beautiful shoes!
