Linda shares the inspiration behind this Bridal Shoot,

“The shoot was inspired by Hollywood glamour and its elements, but also to raise the profile of independent designers.”

“It was about luxury, beauty, realism and making a connection to the Australian Market, and beyond.”

Villa Kula is a luxury, high end tent company based in Perth but travel worldwide, and we were thrilled and fortunate that they suggested their venue to us for any photoshoots,  it is an amazing company with areas set up in different styles, and perfect for this Bridal Shoot.”

“I also knew immediately that the Lilian Halo by HF Couture would sit perfectly with my gold slinky gown.”

The Photographer 

Jason Tey is a  Photographer based in Perth, Australia.

He has always loved Art, and would visit galleries and museums to see art through the ages.

He studied Art History and Music in high school and did fine art (Oil Painting) as one of his TEE subjects.

In university, he chose to study Engineering where he left all the Art and Music behind and in the last three years, but found photography as a foray back into that world as well as a creative outlet.

But of all the things he could shoot, he is primarily interested in people.

He loves the mix of emotion and storytelling so that’s what you’ will see in his work.

He is  particularly passionate about Weddings as he believes that marriage is the closest representation to Jesus Christ and the Church on earth and hence it is VALUABLE.

 

The Accessories

Jane of HF Couture is based in Church Fenton in Yorkshire, England.

HF Couture is the creation of Jane Hardman-Ferris.

She has been designing and creating bespoke tiaras, headdresses, jewellery and accessories for over five years.

Her designs are inspired from the vintage age of fashion and jewellery.

She uses pieces of vintage jewellery to create truly unique pieces for the bridal and fashion market.

The likes of Miriam Haskell, Stanley Hagler, Dior and Schiaparelli and others have inspired her creations. Jane is always looking for new inspirations and has included forms from the natural world into some of her designs.

 

Tamara Harrison also supplied some other stunning accessories to the Shoot.

Tamara grown up in cre­ative sur­round­ings and made her first piece of jew­ellery as a child (think huge Fimo ear­rings!) but the real pas­sion came when her Nana passed and she received her tin of but­tons.

It inspired in her a desire to show off these trea­sures and keep her Nan close to her heart.

She exper­i­mented with var­i­ous styles that would show­case, not only the but­tons, but other beads, bits and bobs.

After many, many hours per­fect­ing the tech­nique the woven pieces were born.

After mak­ing one for herself in every colour and being stopped in the street by peo­ple want­ing to know where she got her neck­lace, the Tamara Har­ri­son Design busi­ness was born.

Thank you so much to the fantastic collaborative team in Perth for sharing this exquisite Bridal Shoot.

The Australian Wedding market is very lucky to have previously UK based Linda in their midst creating such stunning designs, and Brides could not choose a better designer to entrust with creating a Dress for their very special day.

The shoot also showcases some fantastic wedding industry talent in the Perth area to capture and create the perfect look, image or location for a wonderful wedding day.

The UK is also very fortunate to retain the talents of HF Couture, who although based in Yorkshire ships all around the world as she does with some of Linda’s lovely clients.

A collaboration made in heaven…
