Now and again, a bridal gown is so stunning that it absolutely does stop us in our tracks. This chic wedding gown designed by MXM Couture is one such dress, and set against the tropical background of Bali, it becomes so much more than just a dress. Architectural in its detail, weightless in the sea breezes, and somehow, also distinctly bridal. The bride donning this gown is surely a lucky one.

Read on for more from the photographer, Katie Grant:
“Blending old world Bali and the clean lines of the ultra-chic & modern Alila Uluwatu was the goal that Natalie of Paper Diamonds set out to achieve when planning this editorial shoot…and she certainly achieved that. The inspiration was the stunning gown designed by MXM Couture. It’s structure and modern feel just screamed Alila and we couldn’t wait to get to Bali to shoot it amongst their impeccable grounds. Natalie wanted to keep it simple and neutral and allow the beauty of the endless blue horizon and simple architecture take the lead.”

Featured Unique Elopement in Spain

Elopements have this unique ability to allow a couple to shake off the reigns of tradition and do whatever suits them best. In this event, captured by Meghan Kay Sadler, we love how the couple combined their elopement with their honeymoon, travelling through Spain without any particular plans, and enjoying it all the way.
