Marilyn Monroe inspired Bridal Shoot

Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring

Marilyn Monroe

We LOVE this sentiment. We love self expression and encourage everyone to hold true to their personal style when planning their wedding.

We say it a lot, do what makes you feel good… and Marilyn Monroe was definitely an advocate of this philosophy. She is also such a style icon it was a no brainer when the idea came up with Julie Lomax Photography and Marie Antoinette Cakes. We were all instantly excited when we hit on the idea and knew we had to run with it.

We took influence from some of Marilyn’s most iconic looks: the signature empire cut and nipped in waistline. We took those elements, updated it with gold sequins and added a Legend twist teaming it up with jagged tulle and black petticoats. And doesn’t Melissa look the spit of Marilyn? I was blown away by the work of Ruby Red Lips makeup and Lucinda Kay Hair

Black and Gold is such a glamorous colour combination. It’s quite dramatic and oozes luxury. We love how Marie Antoinette Cakes styled our venue and those cakes!
