Romantic French Inspired Styled Shoot – Romance Isn’t Dead   

For the brides with their heart’s set on a French Romance themed wedding celebration, this styled shoot is the one for you, because Romance Isn’t Dead. Set in a dreamy Europe-like location, it perfectly reminds couple’s to not forget about the small, important details of the day and simply about love and honoring your partner on that day and every other one.

The shoot is for the couple who want an elegant wedding where their love plays the main part more than anything – they want it to radiate throughout the night and to shine brighter and bigger than the décor and details to reflect something more breathtaking – their adoration for one another and their souls becoming one.

Styled and captured by a husband and wife team – Sephory Photography, along with a team of Melbourne based creative and professionals, a soft and romantic French-inspired themed wedding day and color palette inspired ‘Romance Isn’t Dead’.

Desa, one half of Sephory Photography explains: “The idea just came from our expression of love for one another. We are two big love birds so we wanted to tell a beautiful story through our own lens. Romance is something, that we feel, is missing in today’s world, so we wanted to reflect the importance of the small gestures and details that keeps us protected from today’s craziness.”

The pale peach walls, antique gold detailing, rusted baby blue tones, rich textures of timber and cobblestone and stunning panoramic view of the open winery, were the perfect backdrop in helping to tell this love story. Have a look and be ready to be blown away…

Wedding industry professionals have reported an increase in the popularity of winter weddings. Between the cold-weather deals to be had to the unique opportunities for wedding décor, winter weddings have a lot to offer.

If you’re planning a winter wedding make sure to choose a winter wedding dress that will flatter, suit your tastes and keep you comfortable.

Here are a few pros and cons, plus tips for selecting a winter wedding dress perfect for the occasion.

Pro: Sumptuous Styles

A winter wedding is all about the contrast of rich warm tones against the icy cold backdrop of the season. A winter wedding dress may be the traditional cream, ivory or white – but it doesn’t have to be. Winter wedding dresses may be made in bold colors out of luxe materials.

 Con: Harder to Find

You will have to do a little more searching to find the dress of your dreams – due to the popularity of the warm and mild-weather wedding, there will be a more narrow selection. Having said that, you may be able to alter an existing gown with a heavy wrap, veil or lining to make it cool-weather appropriate.

 Where to Look

You will definitely be able to find some great choices on the rack of most bridal boutique stores. Vintage and consignment shops may also yield a dress that is more unique and one-of-a-kind that fits the bill or will work with some cold-weather modifications. Check online clearance and gently used wedding dress sales for special pieces and great deals.

 What to Look for

A key factor in your dress will be its material. While you will want a material that is a little thicker and warmer – you will also want to make sure it is breathable and moisture wicking. Cotton, wool and silk will be your best friends – look for dresses with a lining that blends some of these fabrics for both breathability and insulation.

Cuts with Coverage

If your venue and theme echo the cold-weather season you’ll want your dress to match that theme. This means that instead of bare backs and sleeveless silhouettes you may want to experiment with neck and hemlines that provide more coverage. Think long sleeves with peep-hole shoulders and Illusion, Queen Anne, or high neck necklines.


If you plan to take pictures outside or otherwise need to kick up the warmth factor, consider some seriously fun winter accessories like a fur caplet, gossamer and wool wrap or silk gloves. Pick items made with winter performance in mind – synthetic, poly-blend pieces won’t keep you as warm while taking those bridal pictures in the snow.

 Maybe the best part of a winter wedding dress is the chance to combine some of the best luxe elements of any fancy ensemble. Think soft, substantial materials, sparkly crystal or warm gold. Finish that off with a stole or caplet and you have an ensemble worthy of a winter wonderland.
