When Bridal meets Boudoir

When Bridal meets Boudoir

Bride Jade is a full time glamour model so it was essential for her to create some bridal boudoir on the morning of her wedding day.   A lot of  brides-to-be book  into the studio a few weeks before the wedding to photograph some bridal boudoir shots  as a gift to be presented to their husband to be on the morning of the wedding.  It is something very personal and most of the grooms are totally shocked that their new wife did something so personal and intimate just for them.  These images from Jade and Shoroff's wedding will give you an idea of the images created in a bridal boudoir photo shoot. 

When we arrived at the fashionable Crowne Plaza Hotel in Belfast, Jade and her bridesmaids were having their hair styles created by the very talented Sam from 'Hair by Sam & Co'. The bride went for a curly upstyle with little delicate clips of gypsophilia flowers added.  Jade chose to have her make up  by Aine Knocker.  She choose to go for an Asian Bridal style with her makeup.  Aine, Jade and Sam have worked together before on various photo shoots. The boudoir shots were created in underwear from Boux Avenue.

Jade has worked alot with photographer Catharine Jankins.  They have ended up best friends and Catherine got the day off to enjoy the wedding.  Being such a big part of Jade's life she was the one selected to help her into her wedding dress on her big day.

With such a glamorous bride who has experience in front of the camera,  the images naturally became very high fashion and you could find them in a fashion magazine, with Jade wearing a designer Madison James wedding dress from Verona Bridal and accompanied by Jimmy Choo wedding shoes and Frost Couture Jewellery.

The bride and groom took some traditional culture into their ceremony and incorporated a 'hand fasting' ceremony into the wedding service . The I Do's were said and rings  from Perfect Fit were exchanged while Rhian Hanson played the harp.

The Crowne Plaza was the perfect setting for this fashionable wedding, the Bride and Groom choose to go with a 20's/30's style theme with their bridal party and guests looking quite formal. The bridesmaids wore long black dresses with a glitzy design along the top and the men wore dickie bow ties. The Crown Plaza interior added to this with its fashionable feel and look.  The hotel has a cosmopolitan feel which really suited Jade and Shoroff's wedding.  We got some shots around the hotel of the couple including some in the honeymoon suite.   I will let the pictures speak for themselves!
