Naked Beauty: The Video

When I got to thinking about bridal beauty and all its facets, I was overwhelmed with the feeling that I wanted to play it down. I wanted to create a super-pretty, natural shoot that championed soft, subtle beauty. So with that in mind I recruited the styling crew, all of whom I trusted to get my vision of naked beauty. We talked about loose, flyaway hair, gently blushed cheeks and bitten lips. The clothes and accessories are enough to make an impact and we didn’t want any element competing with another.

The result, as you can see, is an ethereal, gentle elegance. Beautifully bridal, without being over-worked.

Beauty is inherent. No need to gild the lily, it’s beautiful as it grows?
