Glamorous Grunge Bridal Inspiration – The Ivory Edit by Bowen Dryden

Glamorous grunge bridal inspiration – Bowen Dryden’s Ivory Edit Collection…

At Mr & Mrs Unique we adore Bowen Dryden and the lovely Sharon, the designer behind the bridalwear brand. So when this awesome grunge-inspired shoot with an edgy punk styling twist hit my inbox, I knew I wanted to share it with you today.

As usual, a cracking team was put together to showcase key pieces from her Ivory Edit Collection.

Over to the team to tell us more…

The Team…

Bowen Dryden’s Ivory Edit is a collection of incredibly versatile pieces that can be worn in a multitude of ways. In classic Bowen Dryden style, we wanted to follow a less traditional look for this shoot. Dialing down the femininity seen in a lot of bridal wear shoots and took inspiration from punk styling and high fashion designers such as Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen, and Saint Laurent. 

We toughened up the beautiful shapes and fabrics of the Ivory Edit pieces with black leather, spiked jewellery, boots, and grungy makeup and hair, showing that bridal wear, even all ivory, does not have to be classic. The Bowen Dryden bride is someone with great style and a fashion understanding so we wanted to reflect that in this shoot. Every silhouette can be worn in a modern way.

Over to the couple to tell us a bit more about their amazing day…

How did you meet and get engaged?

We met at university and ended up proposing to each other! We’d been together for 10 years and had been discussing it for a couple of years. We wanted to do it in a way that felt ‘equal’ rather than one of us going off and planning it all then just “surprising” the other. So we came up with the idea to go away for the weekend and both prepare words for each other as part of a joint proposal. It was surprisingly emotional and special despite us both knowing in advance.

Was there an overall theme to your day? If so, what was it?

Colourful and comfy! We wanted the atmosphere to be relaxed and fun with lots of
