Once Upon A Dreaming With Brides, The Label
You’ll love me at once, the way you did once upon a dream.
The gorgeous royal couple, Harry and Meghan, kickstarted summer on a beautiful note with their astoundingly beautiful wedding in May. The gowns, the flowers and the makeup set many hearts aflutter including mine.
There’s just a certain je ne sais quoi about the bridal look and yeap – I would definitely love to experience the joy of donning a wedding gown again. Aww…
Well, my dream came true when Brides, The Label approached me for a collaboration shoot. I jumped at the chance! Thank you thank you thank you!
Since my Prince Charming is working hard in the office in the daytime, Mike, our talented photographer suggested we chase the daylight and explore the splendor of shadows with just the bride – me. Haha!
Also, most of my actual wedding shots were more sweet and romantic so we decided to steer the wedding vibe to a different direction – a darker theme like Once Upon A Time, Storybrooke style . No flowers, no Prince Charming and barely any smiles.
Mike gave excellent creative directions during the shoot and we made use of everything we could find at the venue. All this wouldn’t have worked without Jennifer of Brides the Label who coordinated the shoot and selected the gowns and accessories.
Of course, we also can’t forget our makeup artist, Karis who expertly hid my gaping pores and uneven skin tone by literally airbrushing my skin with foundation, creating a smooth and flawless finish. She also softened my strong jawline with a romantic bun hairdo.
It was a huge privilege to work with this talented and hardworking trio. The final product was like something out of a wedding magazine.
