Embracing Alopecia – Truly Beautiful Bald Bride

SCP_6438

One of the key things you think about when planning your wedding is how you might wear your hair. Whether you’ll have an up-do, or go bohemian, whether you’ll have a fancy new style, or remain faithful to your everyday look.

But what if you’ve lost your hair? Perhaps because of medical treatment, stress, or in gorgeous Megan’s case as a result of Alopecia Areata. Or even if you’ve just shaved the lot off! Not many styling tips exist for those with no hair…

This shoot from photographer Sandra Chile moves in the direction of changing this, and makes a statement that you can do so much to feel fabulous on your wedding day, hair or no.

Beauty is an infinite spectrum and there are styling options for all.

Game of Thrones Styled Shoot

Jay Anderson Fine Art Photography - Game of Thrones Styled Shoot 129

A couple of years ago, on a beautiful summer’s day in Gloucester, we set up a styled shoot inspired by Game of Thrones.

Ours was a romantic take on the looks from the show, with long flowing wedding dresses, highly styled hair, lots of jewellery and embellishment, and muted metals to balance the sparkly table linen. The stationery and the cake made fantastic use of the motifs of the show, and you’ll have fun spotting all the references!

Game of Thrones wedding need not be a costume party, if that’s not what you want. You can see here that elegance can take centre stage, while still achieving the nods to the show.

Styling a Venue | Scottish and Indian Warehouse Wedding

A little bit of a different take on the real wedding type of post today, in that this features a real couple, but I’m concentrating on the story of the styling of the venue.

Ravi and Frankie had their wedding party at The Glue Factory in Glasgow, hiring Lemonbox Studios to turn the industrial space into a contemporary fusion of Indian and Scottish influences. The results are just stunning and so, so modern.
