There is nothing more fun than having the opportunity to collaborate with local vendors/friends in Tampa Bay for one of a kind styled photo shoots! The talented photographer, Carrie Wildes, photographed the unique and fun Alice in Wonderland inspired photoshoot that was put together by Pastry Chef, Melissa of Chefin, and styled by Tufted vintage rental company. The stylists at Anglo Couture, styled the bride to be and her best girls with gorgeous dresses and accessories from our flagship salon, Anglo Couture and our bridesmaids lounge, The Lounge by Anglo Couture.
The rum pink Lola Top and Lola Skirt by Anglo Couture looked gorgeous on real bride to be, MacKenzie, as well as the adorable headpiece, Fifi from our veil and accessories line, Anglo Trousseau by Anglo Couture featured in the shoot. MacKenzie’s bridesmaids wore chiffon bridesmaid dresses from our very own bridesmaid lounge as well as headpieces from our accessories line, Anglo Trousseau. All the ladies looked beautiful during the bridal shower inspired by Alice in Wonderland.
What a fun experience it was to have photoshoot at the USF Botanical gardens in a mid summer afternoon. The pastel colors and soft flowing fabrics on the bride and her maids fit perfectly with this dreamy backdrop. With the sun beaming on the beautiful décor and food that was strategically styled made for a playful and unique shoot!
This particular photo shoot was a lot of fun since it featured a real bridal party with the soon to be bride, MacKenzie and groom, Dennis at the center of the spotlight! Here, at Anglo Couture we were honored to be a part of this event and style the beautiful bride and the gorgeous ladies in her bridal party!
Bride to be, MacKenzie looked radiant in our Lola Top and Lola Skirt, which are both part of our new 2015 Eros & Lace collection of bridal fashion separates and lingerie! The exquisitely designed and constructed rum pink duchess boustier with hand sewn ivory alencon lace appliques paired perfectly with the rum pink ballerina tutu skirt. The look is perfect for the avante garde bride, a bridal shower dress, or as a reception dress to party in after you say, “I do.” For the bride’s accessories, we paired the Fifi hair comb, which is also a part of our new Anglo Trousseau accessories line and is one of the top picks amongst our associates and clients! Her earrings and her bracelet are sold at our flagship salon, Anglo Couture are the perfect pieces to wear even after the wedding day!
The beautiful ladies in MacKenzie’s bridal party wore bridesmaid dresses from our bridesmaid lounge, The Lounge by Anglo Couture and accessories from our exclusive accessory line, Anglo Trousseau by Anglo Couture. Thank you Tara, Nikki, and Jennifer for showing off our dresses and accessories with such a grace and elegance! The Dessy, Lela Rose, and Social Bridesmaids dresses they wore can be purchased at The Lounge. The ladies looked stunning in the flowing chiffon dresses and Swarovski crystal embellished headpieces. The pastel colors coordinated with the theme and backdrop of the dreamy garden scene all while highlighting the beautiful bride to be and her rum pink short dress.
Last but not least, a special thank you and congratulations to the soon to be married, Dennis and MacKenzie who made spectacular models! You two were great to work with and MacKenzie you looked absolutely breathtaking. You will definitely be a show stopper of a bride on your big day. Wishing you both a lifetime of love and happiness together from the Anglo Couture family!
