SEASONAL SHADES

We're kicking of our Christmas Features with a stunning styled Melbourne session captured by Mark Dayman Photography featuring a spectacular tonal slate gown by Melbourne bridal specialists Romeo Bastone Couture.


There is something about a tonal slate grey with crisp whites that for us conjure up images of a northern hemisphere Christmas celebration complete with; cold evenings by the fire, warm cups of coco and the patterns of softly falling snow.

..."an interplay of silky tulle ruching, entwined to enhance the bodice shaping, the tulle flows into a circular cut tulle layers that form the glamour and romance of the gowns full skirt"...

This modern and romantic elopement hints at the delights of a truly northern Christmas while soaking up the warmth and sunshine that we enjoy at Christmas time here each year. From the cool slate grey's of the couture bridal gown to the delicate blooms and inner city setting, this styled elopement just oozes understated seasonal elegance.
