Come with us behind the scenes on the latest front cover shoot and see how Jade and the team created this sensational summer wedding look…
Ever wondered how we create our beautiful front covers for Wedding Ideas? We caught up with Editor Jade who gave us a sneak peek behind the scenes of the latest shoot, expertly captured by Wiltshire wedding videographer James Fisher.
First up , the dress! “Our model, Leela, had such a gorgeous decolletage that we wanted to show it off!” says Jade. “We chose Amanda Wyatt’s Cece gown, with its pretty, petal-embellished bodice, sweetheart neckline and full A-line skirt. Ideal for summer, princess brides!”
“Leela has a lot of hair, so a down-do would have swamped her,” adds Jade. “Instead we gave her a relaxed bun with a side-swept fringe. We finished the look off with three delicate rose hair pins from Chez Bec – a big trend for the coming months. We’re going to be seeing a lot of flowers in the hair this year, for both brides and bridesmaids.”
What about the accessories? “Every bride needs a bit of sparkle, and Love Susie’s Paramour earrings were just the right amount for this style,” explains Jade. “We decided to let the dress do the talking, and kept the accessories understated for this look – similar to many of our real-life brides.”
So what type of theme would this look work for? “This look is the perfect balance between country garden and princess. Oh-so elegant and bang on trend!”
