English Wedding Photo Shoot by Jess Petrie
May 4, 2012

I love the bohemian meets English tea party vibe of this spring wedding inspiration from Jess Petrie.  Two ideas that I never would have thought to pair up but that work oh-so-well together.  Jenny Packham's gowns do have an ethereal, fairy goddess feel to them so it actually makes perfect sense and this beautiful model in this beautiful dress is a serious knock-out.  The entire inspiration shoot is perfect for the nontraditional bride who craves total romance!  See it all in the full gallery!

From Jess of Jess Petrie... I fell in love with this dress. The creams, coffees & golds, the detailing & the craftwork — utterly gorgeous. And Kamara, the model, worked this dress and rocked the headpiece to perfection. The idea behind this styled shoot was to show bridal with a bit of difference — no traditional white for a gown or a veil, but instead a rather classy boho chic headband with gorgeous detailing and a dress oozing glam with the gold and soft dreamy textures and fabrics.  Her name is Eden…

I thought the candy buffet would work well with the theme, as it is an alternative way to entertain and fill your guests with loving treats and sweets — a perfect combo. Why not hop into Rita, the happy camper, and take off for a few hours after your ceremony or at sunset? Find a quiet location and have some photos taken — how romantic.
