Modern Luxe: Dark Modern and Daringly Seductive Bridal Style
A fierce, fabulous and confident bride is the essence of this photoshoot styled by Kimberley of The Wedding Avenue. Brides are traditionally depicted as soft, sensual and romanticised.
However, this wedding stylist invoked a future bride to be confident, fearless and bold on her big day. Kimberley elevated the sense of style by selecting iconic designer shoes from Freya Rose.
Our Micola Noir were a unique choice of bridal shoes for this stylist’s pictorial. The black courts, with signature ornate mother of pearl heels, were styled with a range of unconventional wedding dresses and co-ords designed by fellow British designer Halfpenny London as part of their new collection, ‘The Black Edit’. One of these creations, adorned with miniature pearls, fabulously pairs with our sultry jewelled heels that are a must-have timeless fashion staple.
Kimberley of The Wedding Avenue said: “Set in the modern-luxe interior of Nobu, Berkley Square this shoot styled, captured by Rebecca Goddard Photography brings together everything I love about bridal fashion and contemporary wedding style. As a frustrated fashionista myself, I wanted to showcase the daring new luxe trend; a dark, moody vibe that oozes cool.”
“A huge fan of layering and texture, I paired items from Halfpenny London’s latest collection to create a range of trend-led looks – from a dramatic oversized black satin skirt to structured organza pleats, sexy sheer skirts, a touch of leather and even a trend-setting bridal blazer.”
