What else would we call this shoot?
When our good friend Stacey decided to ‘Brave the Shave‘ for Macmillan we knew we needed to celebrate how awesome that makes her. I know I would really struggle to lose my hair – it’s such a comfort blanket. So much of your personality is tied up in your hair. To choose to do it, when you’re known for your gorgeous thick brunette tresses is massive. On a different scale, to lose your hair involuntarily, must be one of the hardest things and why Brave the Shave is such an important cause… Nothing compares to you!
The purpose of this shoot? To show that hair doesn’t make the bride. Sure, your hair is an expression of your identity and your look is what gives most people confidence but, (and this may sound controversial) it is overwhelming how common it is for brides in general to be ‘growing their hair for their wedding’ and actually quite frequently to become more and more blonde on the run up to their wedding… would you think that’s a thing? That most people feel the best version of themselves is with long blonde locks? Is that true – or just what social media tells us what brides look like? Well, it’s almost as common as the obligatory wedding diet – but that’s a whole new blog post!
We know there are many a bride who do not fit into this category. We also know, that due to a lack of examples in social media in general, that many brides struggle with how to accessories a super short hair cut feeling any kind of hair piece is too clunky or overpowering. Our super simple advice – don’t wear a headpiece! I think Stacey proves you are no less a bride, no less beautiful and 100% more badass for embracing your uniqueness… Nothing compares to you!
For this shoot Stacey wore 2 of our collection gowns: Bellatrix; Grecian inspired chiffon number with deep plunging neckline, daring leg split and sparkling back chain detail, and Pandora; our full lace boho inspired beauty with bell sleeves and lace hood…
