This elegant ink bridal styled shoot was submitted to lovilee by Western Cape based photographer, Grethe Rosseaux. The theme tied in so well with our current wedding week entitled ‘rock the frock’ where we showcase couples who opted to showcase their body art on their special day.
What the photographer had to say about the shoot:
These days, body modifications are becoming more and more accepted and widespread, yet when a tattooed couple becomes engaged there will always be someone who will wonder (or even ask outright!) “what are you going to do about your tattoos?”, a phrase/question which can spark a whole range of emotions.
What I aimed to do with this shoot is to show that despite the fact that a lot of people expect a tattooed bride to either cover up or go completely Rockabilly for her wedding day, she does not have to do either if it’s not her style. You can have a stylish, elegant wedding that shows off your personality and your ink!
I also love the idea of a luxurious jewel toned colour palette for a wedding instead of the usual pastels, so I used that as a device to carry the opulent, yet modern feel of the shoot.
