Be still our hopeless romantic hearts! Archetype Studio just swept us off our feet with this regal styled shoot at Scotland’s Kellie Castle. The inspiration for this session came from an unlikely, but beautiful, source: a quote by Robert Burns that was engraved on the groom’s wedding ring. The bridal looks featured two breath-taking gowns. The first was a lavender, off-the-shoulder Gossamer beauty worthy of a Grecian Goddess. The second was white two-piece ensemble by Elizabeth Mackenzie Bridal fit for a princess that featured a long, flowing cape in place of a traditional veil. These gowns combined with effortless waves, a simple half-up braid, and natural makeup gave us definite Princess Kate vibes that we want to copy immediately! We love how Archetype Studio incorporated old-world details, from the vintage guest book and feather quill to the calligraphic invitations. Everything about this wedding inspiration was like a fairytale brought to life!
From the photographer: The inspiration for this shoot came from the quote engraved on the groom’s wedding band: “But to see her was to love her; love but her, and love forever.” – Robert Burns
The groom’s wedding band is worn on his pinky – inspired by the tradition of British Royalty to wear their wedding bands on their left pinky.
