Boho Elopement Inspiration

I have been impatiently waiting to share this dreamy collaboration filled with rose quartz crystals and boho accents since the moment it was shot back in April. Captured in one of my favourite locations in Toronto The Great Hall, with its impeccable natural lighting,  white walls and art deco accents this space is a blank canvas waiting to be transformed.  Working with a group of industry talents like this boho dreams were destined to be created.

The shoot had  many layers to get excited about beginning with an  intimate boudoir session with our bride-to-be wearing a gorgeous bespoke bridal robe and tussled waves it made me wonder why I didn't make time for getting ready pictures like this on my own wedding day!

I always like to have a plan in place for the hairstyle when working on a styled shoot however when  I arrived on set I was completely inspired by all the props from Turkish rugs to a floral anklet, and that was before I saw the head piece I would be working with! I am a big believer of less is often more when it comes to hair and  I wanted to add a layer to the hairstyle that connected the movement and structure of the hair piece to the hairstyle and the playfulness of both outfits.

Spring Inspired Styled Shoot

 Styled shoots are such a wonderful opportunity for local creatives to get together behind one concept to express their creativity and to push each other into new creative spaces that aren't always practical or available when working with our own clients. The Spring inspired styled shoot brought together many talented women that I have admired from a far and only dreamed of collaborating with on a project like this! 

 With the brightest of blooms and the most romantic of dresses by Win desgins I knew the pressure was on to create something equally as beautiful with the hair.  When I saw Kei from Quill + Oak create  the most beautiful flower combs in a matter of minutes I knew I couldn't look past these adorable blooms as a focal piece for the hair.

Rebecca of Wee Three Sparrows was a master at capturing the vibrancy and playful scenes that transpired in a small studio bursting with wonderful  women, earl grey cupcakes and the most mouth watering meringues I have ever tasted.

Romantic Minimalist Styled shoot at The Great Hall

After taking a hiatus from blogging over the holidays, I am exited to jump back in this week with a gorgeous styled shoot that was shoot back in November by Corynn Fowler.  Last year Corynn and I worked on several creative projects together, we share a love for minimalist spaces and creating natural beauty. 

One of Toronto’s best keep secrets the recently renovated Great Hall provided the perfect back drop for the shoot. The Great Hall blends romance and minimalism by combining high ceilings, an abundance of natural lighting and gorgeous bespoke vintage details. 

 My inspiration for the bridal hairstyle came from the Saja gown modelled in the shoot. The two textures of the gown were so different yet when combined together they captured the perfect mix of dreamy and elegance that many brides are seeking. I wanted to create a hairstyle that reflected the gown's elements by leaving out soft undone pieces around the face and working towards a more structured finish at the bun. I left  an undone feel to the hairstyle with minimal volume to ensure the hair looked as effortless as the gown.

Boho Glam Wedding Inspiration

As I am about to set off for a few months in Australia it is only fitting that i share this sun soaked styled shoot from the beginning of spring! This Elopement Boho-Glam styled shoot was inspired by the dreamy California landscape and the free spirited Bohemian aesthetic that comes from out there. 

The Scarborough bluffs provided the perfect Californian dessert setting for this shoot, with our real life husband and wife saying their i do's under a handmade teepee, enjoying delicious food from a personal chef and eloping in the cutest VW mini van this really was the most elaborate styled shoot i have been involved in! To top it off this shoot was also feature on Green wedding Shoes.
