Hey there lovebirds! The glorious month of July has finally begun, and we are so eager to see what it brings to our destination wedding space. But before we do, have you seen our fabulous new “Find a Vendor” section, or our new Submissions page for destination wedding professionals?

These stunning images that we are sharing today came by way of Damian Luk Pat from Damian Luk Pat Photography. We teamed with our first place winner from our Birthday Promotion – Rachelle, life and style award winning blogger from Salt and Shimmer and a number of luxury suppliers we know and love to create this dreamy bridal fashion shoot.

Our vision was to create a sense of glam meets modern, and I think that we definitely accomplished that with this simple yet statement shoot. From the natural pale pink lips and classy bronze tone done by Katrina from The MUA House, to the rich ivory dress and Swarovski pearl and crystal cuff from luxury wear designer Van der Vlugt – We hope that these images have something to offer and mostly inspire to our lovely readers.

We loved the natural hairstyle that we chose for this shoot – wavy, full and free.

The shoot features one of our favourite custom pieces from Van der Vlugt – The Marilyn Gown. Amazing right? Rachelle was gifted with this Swarovski pearl and crystal cuff as can be seen in the images below. If you’ve fallen head over heels in love with this piece, just as we have, then see more from VdV Accessories here.

We just adore the movement of this classic dress – perfect for any type of destination wedding in the Caribbean. And though we fell in love with the wine Marilyn gown in our Christmas/ New Year Shoot in December, the ivory was just as mesmerising.

We partnered with D’ Rite Stuff for our first Birthday promotion, and they gifted our winner Rachelle with these gorgeous champagne flutes and bottle of Prosecco. This company is the longest running specialty household retailer in Trinidad & Tobago, and has hundreds of products for ever corner of your home – perfect for your Registry.

We hope that you enjoyed these images as much as we loved making the Styled Shoot. Pin to your hearts content lovebirds, and keep the great inspiration while planning for your own destination wedding.

Till next time…Happy Planning!
