The following Bridal Inspiration in Palacio Queluz was the first one I ever styled, produced and photographed. I had the idea for this Style Shoot when a dear friend, who’s a hat designer, gave me one of her beautiful creations. I have a secret passion for hats and hold quite a few models in my wardrobe. Each one is unique, and there’s always room in my heart for a new “hat love”. That’s what happened with this particular model. The minute I received it, I thought it would make a fabulous bridal accessory. Maybe it was the pale pink hue, widespread in the bridal universe; I don’t know exactly, but the image of a bride in a hat immediately arose in my head. I imagined a modern, fashionista bride who would accessorize her bridal look with this delicate hat. A blush powdery pink felt fedora hat with a broad brim, classic and romantic.
To highlight the hat’s geometry and the modernity of the bride’s look, I sought to have an architectural statement background. For this, the architecture of the Palacio Queluz in Sintra with its light blue coloured walls, high arches and long galleries was the best fit. The imaginary bride of this bridal inspiration editorial in Palacio Queluz would wear a two-piece wedding gown by Ana Javgureanu Atelier to match her trendy and confident personality. The elegant white set combined a romantic lace top with a beautiful flowing long skirt. For the hair, along with Tom Perdigao, the Makeup and Hair artist, we choose to have the bride’s long locks loose with slight beach waves to enhance the casual-chic look of a free-spirited bride. This editorial’s bride is not afraid to experiment and move away from the traditional wedding approach. To complete the bridal look, Atelier Decorelle, the floral designer created a boho bouquet with roses of different pink shades and pampas grass stems, matching the “bride in a hat look” in boldness and originality.
