Low Key, High Fashion, Effortless + Supercool Bridalwear from Archive 12

The fabulous Archive12 bridal boutique in Northern Ireland shared these images with us recently and we love them.

They feature the designs of some of the coolest creatives out there producing dresses for brides and bridesmaids, including Daughters of SimoneJackson and Grace, And For Love, Rewritten and Otaduy. I’m just as thrilled to see accessories from two brands making a big name for themselves currently, A.B.Ellie and the fabulous Blue Meadow Bridal, who is shortly joining our Little Book Wedding Directory.

“The inspiration behind theArchive12 look book is all about that low-key bridal queen look. Relaxed and effortless, but super cool. Soft flowing gowns with textured details from polka dot tulle to fringed tassels and pearl beads on a backdrop of linens and velvets.”“Capes and crowns take centre stage to add some bohemian edge and gold accessories keep it on trend for 2019 with our A.B.ELLIE headpieces and ear-rings.”

“I wanted to shoot in our newly refurbed boutique, taking inspiration from the interiors world with muted pinks, oranges and corals along with natural wood fittings and rattan chairs.”

“The florals and stationery reflected this colour palette along with gold accents in the vases and table settings.”

“The final result is a relaxed, fashion bridal editorial for the cool modern bride.”
