We always have a bit of an international vibe here at Bridal Musings, but today, we’re feeling it even more.

Not only are Elizabeth and I fighting the jet-lag, after returning to Dubai and London from trip to NYC for Bridal Fashion Week (more on that very soon!), but we’re also sharing a beautiful inspiration shoot that takes its cue from inter-continental style.

Photographed by the talented, Anneka Photography who captures English and Asian weddings, with Sikh, Christian and Hindu celebrations in her repertoire, who better to share a multi-cultural inspired bridal session?

With ornate accessories, rich blooms, opulent textures and gorgeous hair and make-up, there’s a lot of inspiration in this shoot, no matter where in the world you’re getting married.

We’ll let the lovely Anneka Photography tell us more about the concept behind it…

About the Shoot

Created by British based designers and craftspeople, this East Meets West bridal gallery has been created with the fusion bride in mind.

Traditional lace English gowns are complimented by striking Asian-influenced hair and beautifully traditional jewellery.

Our shoot also includes a segment on incorporating gold into a wedding look, with a stunning sequin gold dress and an ombre tulle one-shoulder Indian reception gown.

Just beautiful. I’m a bit obsessed with the trend for gold wedding dresses at the moment, can you tell! And those flowers are just so luxe, I can’t believe Anneka did them herself!

Thanks so much to Anneka Photography, and her awesome team of vendors for sharing their shoot with us.
