We always find coastal weddings and editorials to be so inspiring. There is something about a seaside view that just takes your breath away, and makes it the perfect setting for a wedding! In this gorgeous editorial, we also cannot get enough of this truly amazing MXM Couture gown. Have you ever seen such subtle detailing create such a major impact?
More about what inspired the stylist, Paper Diamonds:
“I wanted to take a soulful approach to the design of this editorial. Hidden in a cove, our little patch in the sand was a warm, inviting, and familiar setting. Raw, rugged, and resplendent, crystal blues, soft shimmering greys and washes of lavender play against jagged sandstone rocks.
For the table I pulled in treasures of the old world, pieces that might have travelled the oceans many years ago on ancient voyages. Silver chargers, candelabras and serving spoons paired with velvet textured ribbons and hints of raw crystal elements. I paired the linen with a tulle overlay to resemble the ocean shimmering gently at dusk.
The incredible gown was almost other-worldly, as though it was from a bygone era of royalty and utter decadence, even reminiscent of a divine mermaid lost along the shoreline. With every angle we saw something new, with layer upon layer of tulle, ruffles, crystals and intricate beading playing perfectly against the ocean.”
