Stormy Waters – Mystical mermaid bridal inspiration with ocean tones and gothic details

Mystical mermaid bridal inspiration with ocean tones and gothic details

When I shared one of these images on my Instagram feed a couple of weeks back, you guys LOVED it! So I touched base with the lovely Chettara from  Chettara T Photography to see if I could share more on the blog with you today!

You’re gonna love the incredible ocean toned bridal dress, the EPIC cake inspired by a piece of artwork by Christine Olmstead, the gothic-inspired accessories, PLUS the smoke bomb magic!

Over to The Dulce Experience to tell us more about the inspo…


What was your inspiration…

The inspiration for this shoot was from a random internet photo of an Amphiocopus & an abstract painting by Christine Olmstead. When I saw the painting I knew I had to turn it into a cake. At first, the two were separate ideas until Chettara reminded me that the painting matched the mood board. Then the ideas were forever married! We planned the shoot around that. We reached out to our trusted vendor friends that we have worked with before to ensure that this could be pulled off! 

Do you have any styling tips for readers looking to emulate this shoot?

If someone wanted to recreate this I think they would have to strategically handpick vendors. If they find one, they can ask that vendor do they know others that can make that happen, more than likely that vendor does. 

What’s the most important tip you have for couples planning their wedding?

Don’t forget to do what you want, not what your parents want, not what the trend is, but what will make you happy on your special day.

What is it that makes your shoot unique? 

This is unique because we haven’t seen anything like this before. The concept was so organic and flowed. We created what made us happy and welcomed all types of ideas. The boldness and badassery of this shoot might be unmatched!
