There is something otherworldly about this styled shoot by Leah Cruikshank and The Ballerina Bride featuring delicate colours and textures set against a dark, gritty streetscape.

The concept, created by makeup artists The Ballerina Bride, was to draw inspiration from places rarely noticed and not considered traditionally beautiful. “We rarely look up, in the dark, or past something that doesn’t have superficial beauty. We wanted to show some of Brisbane’s locations that may not be typical to wedding photography. Up on a rooftop carpark, down a seemingly dingy alley- juxtaposed with beautiful textured gowns and soft makeup”, the team explain.

Timeless, high-fashion gowns and distinctive gold crowns by Judy Copley Bridal give these brides an ethereal presence as they wander the city streets, with under-stated hair and makeup by The Ballerina Bride and Luxe Salon by Rebecca completing the look.

The bouquets created by Heavenly Blooms are classic and soft, adding another unexpected element amidst the surrounding brick and concrete and demonstrating that beauty really can be created anywhere.
