Enchanted Bridal Inspirations

 

Imposing columns underline the salon´s lavish size whose walls are adorned by valuable stucco. Pompous arms of gold hold slender candles whose flickering flames spit mysteriously. From above a ceiling painting watches over the bride who looks insecure and sorrowful into the future.

Yet she finds security within the splendor of her companions: a shimmering crown and an opulent bouquet. And she finds protection under her floor-length veil covering her pretty face. She seems breakable and lost in the width of the hall. Yet her beauty doesn´t get lost in the shuffle of pomp, it´s flourishing more and more instead.

When we think of Russian weddings we think of feudal decorations, sumptuous dinner parties and glamorous bridal gowns. But that might be all cliché!

The impressive pictures shot by photographer Olga Plakitina show wonderfully delicate bridal inspirations by the Russian event designer of Dreams & Honey.

Even if we can´t deny the whiff of splendor we now show you a refined wedding world in purest white and the softest peach presented by Olga Plakitina.
