Sheer Skirting

One of the biggest trends we have seen growing in bridal fashion is that of sheer skirting. The trend was originally born in the realm of Haute Couture (perhaps most famously in Givenchy's Fall 2010 Couture Collection) making translucent gowns a daring yet ultra-feminine statement item made for glamorous, fashion-forward brides. Today on the blog, we're revisiting some of our favourite dreamy sheer details from both bridal and iconic Couture collections.

This beauty shoot, captured by Leanne Pedersen Photographers with styling by Soha Lavin of CountDown Events Planning + Design, is simply stunning. We’re particularly smitten with floral crowns designed by Granville Island Florist and the fashion-forward headpieces from Vancouver’s Olivia. From soft and feminine to striking and chic, the talented Sonia Leal-Serafim of THEYrep styled the different (and oh-so-steal-worthy!) hair and makeup looks. As always, the full list of creative professionals involved in the photo shoot can be found at the end of the post.

Sharon and Vimol’s gorgeous, gold and ivory wedding was designed to exude timeless elegance. Nargess Tabrizy of Fleur de Lis Events provided full-service planning and design assistance, working closely with the couple to bring their dream celebration at The Fairmont Hotel Vancouver to life.

We adore the glamorous floral designs Sunflower Florist created for the event, including the bride’s bouquet made with lush peonies and the head table centrepiece that beautifully cascaded down to the floor. We're also completely smitten with the ornate, six-tier wedding cake from Berliosca Cake Boutique decorated with gold accents and the couple's custom monogram. You can learn more about the wedding, captured by Jasalyn Thorne Photographers, in the current issue of WedLuxe Magazine (Western Canada Edition) available on stands and online here: http://wedluxe.com/store/issue/ws-2015-the-floral-issue/
