Breathtaking Beachside Wedding Inspiration

Are you in the midst of planning a beach wedding? Then we suggest you peek the pretty that is this inspiration from 2 Brides Photography to help plan your big day. It’s ethereal, elegant and totally chic, and thankfully we’ve got every beautiful bit waiting for your to fall in love with via The Vault!

From 2 Brides PhotographyThese shoots were both inspired by the unique landscape of rocks on this famous island of Fårö, where Ingmar Bergman well renowned film director, lived and worked. Fårö’s unique light has attracted artist, painters and film makers throughout the years. Fårö is a small, 113 km-square, island in the Baltic Sea, linked by ferry to its larger neighbor, Gotland. Its landscape is distinctive: the entire island is made up of limestone rock, with areas of agricultural land interspersed with areas of scrubland. Ingmar Bergman about Fårö: “If one wished to be solemn, it could be said that I had found my landscape, my real home; if one wished to be funny, one could talk about love at first sight.

We did the sessions on 2 separate occasions. Day one we let the light and the colors of the early morning inspire us with it’s shades of brown, blue and grey. Day two we were embedded by the mist and late evening lavender light and had that lead our way.

From Elins Art Studio about the blue, “Diva Maris” shoot…Picking out items for styling is often how the idea of the styling concepts unfolds for me. The delicacy of the porcelain hair accessories like the clay flowers reminded me of seashells from the ocean. So an ocean setting seemed necessary and our photographer Isabelle from 2 Brides Photography knew the perfect one. I chose a deep heavy petrol color to illustrate the foaming ocean on the printed goods and on the table wear. Accompanied by florals in light purple and blue, the color palette was set. And when choosing to just have an elopement just you and your groom, you need to make the wedding dinner memorable, and dine in a way you probably never will again.

About the yellow, “Golden Island Light” shoot…Being inspired by the ocean is such a wide concept and we have such marvelous colors on the beach! In this styling we decides on the brownish and yellow colors from the seaweed, clams, and the lichen on the raukar. And the golden sun came out to cooperate with us. A fierce goddess of a woman, standing tall and strong as the stone pillars surrounding her. The dresses fitting her perfectly and flattered her feminine curves. The headpieces reminding me of coral fern and the printed suite resembles sandy beaches.

The Chicest Shoot at a Castle We’ve Ever Seen

Inspired by the idea of contrast – and the striking beauty often found there – this styled shoot captured by 2 Brides Photography leaves us breathless. From the gorgeous, chic big bun on this bold bride to her jumpsuit that is making us green with envy, every single bit is on point. And we haven’t even gotten to the florals! The colors! The wild abandon! We could go on forever raving about these pics but save yourself the time and head to our Vault for all of them – it’s totally time well spent.

From 2 Brides PhotographyMaybe, sometimes love isn’t always about being as one. Maybe sometimes it’s about allowing each other to be unique? Finding harmony in the contrast between your different personalities. This conundrum is something we’re incorporating into the styling of this shoot. The contrast between two persons can be visual, much as the contrast between high-end fashion and an medieval castle. Or as between tin and lace, plexiglass and solid rock. Contrasting materials and colours, displaying how two people can come from different worlds but still fit perfectly together.

Set in the historic castle of Brahehus, located in between the two biggest cities in Sweden, is where we choose to play out the story. This fortress, built 1637 by Count Magnus Brahe, is now house of the crows. From the castle’s fascinating history we spun a vision of legends and fairy dust put in modern day Sweden. A table set with tin plates that contrasts beautifully with the plexiglass in chairs and invitations, the concept starts to unfold. The bride is from a different town, a different class, and dresses in a jumpsuit and lace cape. The groom dresses up beautifully in the midnight blue tuxedo, and their different personalities are equally shown.

Contemporary Summer Stockholm Wedding

Some weddings don’t fit into just one single “box.” Rustic. Modern. ClassicWhimsical. Some weddings perfectly blend those categories for a style mashup all their own, and this celebration is a prime example. It’s natural and organic with greenery galore, but also sleek and minimalist with contemporary edge. It all comes together seamlessly, and there’s more to see in The Vault from 2 Brides Photography.

From 2 Brides PhotographyIt was such a pleasure to photograph Sandra and Gabriel’s visually lush outdoors wedding at Ekensdal. Their wedding was super relaxed, fun, and filled with adoration. The bride and groom are the sweetest people ever and they were so laid back, it really felt like we were family. The bride got ready together with her bridesmaids at Ekensdal and the guests and the groom arrived by boat just before the ceremony. The ceremony was heartfelt and lots of music were played by amongst others, the groom’s sister. During recessional the guests tossed rose petals and cheered for the newlyweds, the bride was simply glowing, a very romantic moment.

We are beyond thankful that we got to be there to witness their union and to celebrate together with Sandra and Gabriel, the entire day was just enchanted. Also, Mattias at Ekensdal, floral designer Linnéa at The Wild Rose, and stylist Elin from Elins Art Studio, are the best of the best to work with. They can create the most perfect setting for any style aware bride and we can not recommend them enough.

From the Bride…He proposed in London, Hyde park. Gabriel had secretly booked an appointment in advance at Tiffany’s later that day. The bride-to-be felt like a princess picking out the right ring and diamond.

We planned everything ourselves and we chose to have an outdoor wedding. As you know, you can not control the weather. We were nervous for weeks. We were really lucky having a rain-free day with some sun but with quite strong winds. Some of the outside details we had to remove due to the wind. We were also supposed to have sheets over the benches but they just blew away. (However it turned out even more beautiful without!)

When the wedding ceremony started. After months of planning we could finally let everything go and just enjoy. What wasn’t done didn’t matter anymore, and we realise that OUR wedding was actually beginning. The music began, the bridesmaids left one by one. A deep breath, I’m next, walking, and then the first look at each other. That was my favourite moment of the day.

We used Pinterest for inspiration, you can find almost everything there. Really easy to be swept away for hours. However we wanted a clean and unembellished feel to the day and we felt that inspiration for that was a bit harder to find.

The dinner with speeches and surprises was a delight and so much fun. We didn’t know anything in advance what was going to happen, except of course for the food and servings. Our toast master and toast madame had done such a great job planning everything without us finding out. Also, It’s a pure joy having people you like everywhere you turn and that they are there for you. Our best tip as far as planning a wedding is to don’t care about what you should or shouldn’t do or who you have to invite, this is your day. Just do as YOU like. Then take time to really enjoy.
