The concept was inspired by the otherworldly landscapes of Cornwall and we wanted to create an almost metaphysical atmosphere with the shoot. Through the use of unearthly visuals and sounds, we wanted to bring to life the idea of love as an escapism to another world….
“They ran to only what they knew. In that moment they believe to live for nothing but each other” – Lyrics from With the Night by Everyone Moves Away (video track, be sure to check it out below)
The title of the shoot “Ether” is an extension of this concept in both meanings of the word. Ether: “a pleasant smelling drug used as an anaesthetic” is representative of an all-encompassing euphoric kind of love, one that overcomes earthly pains and troubles. Ether: “the upper regions of air beyond the clouds”again feeding into the transcendental landscapes of Cornwall and picking up on the notion of love as a spiritualistic feeling.
With stripped back, understated styling, we wanted the dresses and settings to speak for themselves (aided by the beautiful models and hardworking team of creatives of course!) and celebrate the idea of a fuss free modern take on bridal that focusses on the emotions behind the day.
With a special heart felt thank you to this hard working dream team…
When it comes to Bridesmaid dresses, finding a brand that truly speaks to me has proved somewhat difficult to say the least. If you are aware of our store, you’ll know that we aren’t afraid to search the globe in order to find the most imaginative designers to add to our collection. Bringing you bridal labels from L.A, New York, Melbourne, Toronto and beyond, if it fits with our ethos of luxury bridal meets fashion, then location doesn’t even come into it. That’s why we were so thrilled to hear from the lovely girls Fran and Katie from Rewritten who have brought to life their vision of “damn cool bridesmaid dresses” for modern women and what’s better….they are based right here in our countries capital. Creating fuss-free, stylish and well made bridesmaid dresses, Rewritten are a breath of fresh air to the UK industry. When they asked if we would like to be part of their road trip in conjunction with world renouned wedding blog Rock My Wedding, we practically bit their hands off.
So excited we were about the event, we made sure it was going to be one to remember by bringing in other local industry related businesses who worked so hard to bring the party to life and make it much more than a showcasing. We had the talented Callum from The Yorkshire Bartender making ridiculously good cocktails….I mean, what party doesn’t have alcohol right? The super sweet Alice from Forage and Blossom really worked her little butt off all day creating the most incredible flower installations and was kind enough to stick around for a flower crown making work shop which went down a storm and delightfully accented the bridesmaid dresses. The adorable Amy George Make Up Artist taught us all a thing or two about make up and did some amazing demonstrations using dried flowers and taught us about all the latest trends. Oh.. and I now know how to do the perfect eyeliner ticks thanks to Amy! A task I once thought impossible.
Needless to say, thanks to the awesome dresses and talented team, the night was a huge success with brides and their best girls travelling to us from all over the North of England to enjoy the night. What’s even better is we decided we just couldn’t say goodbye to the dresses and they are now a regular staple in the Ghost Orchid Bride collection. Finally I had found a bridesmaid label I could relate with!
New York bridal fashion designer Alexandra Grecco are now an official Ghost Orchid Bride staple and what better way to celebrate than with the most major of trunk shows. From 21st – 29th August we will be home to the most sought after styles from Alexandra Grecco, including the newest Stardust collection. As if this was’t a dream in itself, throughout this limited period we will be offering 10% discount on all Alexandra Grecco purchases.
