It was the galactic styling of this lookbook shoot from Northern Irish bridal boutique Archive 12 that caught my eye on Instagram: the projections of constellations onto the model, echoed in her make-up where stars adorn her face, all grounded with a grungey pairing of trainers and gown. Well, it’s just modern bride styling perfection for me.




The Styling by Archive 12 Owner Claire

“For this shoot, I wanted to play with the idea of projecting onto the model, and using images of the starry night sky gives that other-worldly celestial vibe. The Naturae Design headpieces fit perfectly with this theme, inspired by the moon and stars.”

“We also played with light to create dark spaces, which added to the ’90s styling. By adding some grunge jewellery and gold leaf tattoos, it helped to create the moody grunge vibe.”
