Have you ever seen cotton look so darn pretty? Dried cotton that is- specifically, “on mass,” says Amy, florist of Willow & Bear, who also planned and conceptualised this gorgeous styled shoot. “It’s the absolute hero piece of the look,” she adds. “Something that hasn’t been done before, until now.” Add candles, crystal and coral for unique elements on tap, mixed in with raw-edged linen, tulle and a touch of black, and you have one heck of a look that we’re pretty certain will inspire all of the brides out there looking for something new and different on their big day. I mean, just look at that arbour… It’s positively dreamy.

“The styling embodies a strong, moody vibe for the bride who likes to think outside the box,” says Amy. “The styling has been contrasted with a soft and pretty look for the bride with the use of tulle and lace bringing a perfect touch of romance.” We can thank The Anti-Bride and Sydney bridal boutique, Hope X Page for that gorgeous bridal look, along with The Makeup Society and Nourish Me Beautiful, and if you want more, you’ll find real brides wearing Hope X Page pieces here.

Shot in the versatile space, Commune, by Photographer Emma Wand, this shoot came to life in the images you see below, thanks to a combined effort by event stylist, The Hunted Yard, with props by The Collective Hire and signage and place cards by Signed By Bird. It’s proof black and white doesn’t have to be boring, or classic, or done before at all. So scroll down and start pinning to your wedding board, stat.
