Let’s take more of a look …..
“Some couples are looking at micro weddings and more intimate two part wedding days in this temporary Covid 19 climate. This micro wedding elopement styled shoot shines light on some of the perks of considering hosting a smaller celebration. One of those perks being additional time for extra bridal portraits. With perhaps even a dip in the Ocean
This shoot was based around emigration and setting sail from Ireland, via the Atlantic. I collaborated with an original Irish brand who captures Irishness and emigration in it’s entity. Kinn Óir is a Luxury Irish Bridal Accessories brand specialising in unique, timeless veils and headpieces, adding the perfect finishing touch for your special day.
This is a milestone in wedding photography as we were the first team to shoot bridal in EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum and you may even recognize Model Actors (and a Mr. Ireland) Karl Bowe + Lynseyann Mulvey.
Lynseyann’s dress is modern, sleek and minimalist. This gave the perfect canvas to accessorize and standout in the unique settings. Our bride model adorned the Cleo headpiece from Kinn Oir. The name “Cleo”comes from Cliona in Irish mythology who was, among other things, an inspiration for poets. In Greek it means glory and the gold laurel branches are reminiscent of Greek and Roman times.
While on the beach we appropriately switched up our hair piece to the Atlantic Crown which symbolises beauty, strength, the perfect imperfection of nature and the hope and promise of what lies ahead. While setting sail into the Ocean, Lynseyann wore a variation of Kinn Óir Erin veil with hand painted gold leaf “
