As an editor, taking perfect photos is one of the happiest thing during my work. I like sharing stories with genuine emotions and taking less of traditional style shoots, but I do love working with like-minded suppliers. During this particular shoot process, we managed to have a lovely team of local suppliers and the atmosphere throughout the shoot was very relaxed and fun, which is always very important to me.
The inspiration came when I first saw the gorgeous floral dress by Louise Rose Couture. Louise is a young independent business owner and we had worked together in the past. I wanted to photograph it when I saw a sneak peek of her sundress. Instead of more obvious pastel colours, I choose to follow palette of blue and yellow tones: bold and yet elegant.
Since we wanted to achieve an authentic look, I hope to have a real couple at the beginning especially for a black bride as they are so underrepresented in this industry. I’ve been dreaming to shoot someone like Carissa for a very long time and when I saw her, a mom of two chidren and a blogger, on Instagram, I knew straight away she would be perfect.
Additionly, it was very important to me that Carissa was a genuine natural beauty. I think as photographers, we too often tend to display ideal beauties rather than real images that reflect and celebrate the diversity of women’s beautiful, natural bodies.
For the makeup and hair, we were also lucky to have Joyce Connor. As a successful makeup artist and a black woman herself, Joyce also offers training on how to apply the right make up on women of colour for other makeup artists.
The venue was the lovely Herons farm. These natural scenery, the raw beauty of its barn and the green surroundings complemented our theme perfectly. Sally and her husband Ralph, from ‘With These Hands’ brought everything together with their creative props and the gorgeous floral arrangements. Also you can make it for what you want.
From us, you can not only find wedding decorate inspiration, but also various, natural beauty and gorgeous floral cheap Wedding Dresses are ready for you, my beautiful brides.

Some brides even have imagined their weddings since they were very young. Others have no idea what an “A-line” actually is. No matter what your experience in bridal wear, don’t let these important questions fall through the cracks while choosing your dream summer dress!
Can this gown be delivered timely for my wedding?
Most brides shop for gowns about 6-9 months before their wear dates. We recommend starting about a year ahead to accommodate delivery and alterations. Whatever your timeline, ask about specific styles with quicker or longer delivery windows to narrow your options.
What works for my body type?
Try to find some wedding dress silhouettes, wedding dress designers, and styles you like before going to your bridal shop, but trust your sales associate to help you find something nice.
Will this dress still be available for sale in a few weeks or months?
Sometimes wedding dresses go off the market without any notice, so many boutiques offer an incentive to pay a gown on your first visit. Make sure “the one” doesn’t slip away!
What is my range of motion in this dress?
Wedding dresses are made with priced and delicate materials, which can limit your range of motion. Can you raise your arms in a dress? Does the skirt feel heavy? Will the fabric breathe well for your season and venue? These factors help you lock down beauty AND function for your big day.
What size should I order?
Wedding dress sizes are different than street sizes, and you’ll want to anticipate weight fluctuations before the big day. Your sales associate is the best resource for deciding what size to order.
What kind of undergarments should I wear with this style?
Features like a plunging V-neckline or illusion lace back determine the type of undergarments you should wear for the big day.
Can I change my mind about a specific style?
Be sure to completely understand your boutique’s cancellation policy before you sign your name and make a payment. A prom dress is an important made-to-order purchase, so many retailers do not allow you to change your mind. If you do end up having regretting your purchase, take a moment to collect yourself and make a smart game plan, rather than panicking about the payment.
Brides everywhere prefer satin wedding dresses for a particular and lustrous look on their wedding days. A lace wedding dress is cute and organza is filled with body, but satin is unmatched when it comes to mark the difference and elegance of your big day.
What is Satin?
A gown is “satin” if it has a unique fabric and weave pattern. The top side of this fabric is glossy and smooth, while the underside is dull and matte. It’s also possible to purchase double-faced satin for gloss on both sides. Traditionally satin is made from silk, but modern variations are typically made with polyester, nylon, or rayon.
However, satin is made with silk, rayon, polyester, and nylon, sateen is a cotton-based fabric. The fabrics are woven the same way, but sateen gets its gloss from a chemical process called mercerization. Sateen is more durable from a construction standpoint, but doesn’t achieve the same gloss as satin, and the sheen tends to fade after wearing and washing. Luxury garments are made with satin more often than sateen.
While satin is an expensive and top-quality fabric, many brides prefer lightweight alternatives like taffeta and organza. Consider your taste and comfort level: satin is formal, iridescent, and unique. Furthermore, many brides prefer subtle to no shine in their gowns, selecting for matte organza and antique lace over shimmery fabrics. Don’t be afraid to ask questions and follow your instincts when it comes to finding the perfect gown.
If you put yourself in deep love for the satin fabric, consider the design, silhouette, and embellishments on your dreamy satin wedding dress.
Whether you’ve chosen a simple or elaborate design, preserving the beauty of your satin wedding summer dress depends on simple but diligent aftercare. While we recommend only taking your wedding dress to a professional dry cleaner for a full treatment, spot-cleaning your gown is easy and cheap to do at home.
You can do a quick spot-clean on your dress once you’ve gathered your materials, saving grease stains for a special treatment later. Use warm water and a dab of mild liquid soap to treat dark spots, dirt stains, and non-greasy food stains while a spot removal product also can treat wine and makeup stains. You can use a soft, clean rag to rub, but please don’t scrub on it. On the other hand, treat grease stains by squirting a little dish washing soap on a soft, clean rag and applying it to the fabric. Blot to begin, then scrub gently as necessary. The soap will lift the grease away at last. Ignoring the spot clean will let these grease stains worse, making it much more difficult to clean and you need more time to deal with it.
If you take your dress to a professional dry cleaner, make sure that all attachments on your cheap wedding dress, such as removable floral pattern, appliques, and beaded accessories have been removed to prevent damage during the cleaning process. You can take more attention for this details before settling on a professional service, and your authorized retailer will be an excellent recommendable resource in the future.
Please don’t ignore the steam while put your iron on the lowest setting, because dry heat could melt your high-quality gown in seconds flat. When you iron your dress please put a thin cotton cloth between the satin and iron, remember don’t put the iron directly on the satin fabric. And you can test this way in a small, hidden area first and then do it safely.
Please try a steaming method if running an iron on your satin dress make you frightened. Hang the gown in your bathroom, run a hot shower, and close the door to allow steam to build up. Check to see if the wrinkles are gone after twenty or so minutes. You can make it smooth with a clean cloth or cotton glove and let the shower run a little longer, so that your dress looks fresh and in good status for a long time.
