See more of Alexandra’s design, the Isla gown, as worn and styled by our Truly Enamoured Bride #TEBride, Ho Sin. Our bride styled her pre-wed shoot with the perfect balance of cool-girl bride juxtaposed against a nostalgic setting in Fuzhou (Fujian Province). Scroll on to read more about her inspiration and style for her pre-wedding shoot!
First off, our TE Bride wears the Isla gown by Alexandra Grecco. Gossamer tulle in soft a-line, paired with embroidered lace and subtle beading.
Even more so, we love how the bride had her portraits done in such a nostalgic setting. The juxtaposition of the Isla gown’s effortless look against a traditional home spells cool-girl bride.
TE: Your pre-wed portraits were taken in Fuzhou, what was the inspiration behind shooting in Fuzhou?
Bride: My husband and I wanted to shoot something different from those conventional pre-wed photos usually seen online and also go back to our roots. So we thought of shooting at Fuzhou since our families were both from there and we wanted to do something quirky, fun and relaxed. Also, I remember looking through the pre-wed photos of a chinese couple a couple of years back where they shot at Tibet. Also, they shot at some really cool places in China. And I thought to myself I’d want to do something like this when I shoot my pre wed photos!
Above all, the whole look is complete with minimal accessories. Just a pair of small delicate jacket earrings. To amp up the cool-girl factor, wear minimal makeup. Finish with a textured and undone bun.. You’ll look like you feel like yourself in your bridal portraits.
TE: We love the earrings you wore for your pre-wed, where did you get them from? Describe your makeup style for your pre-wed photos and share one thing you did to prep for makeup looks for the shoot?
Bride: I got them (the earrings) from Lovisa. I wanted my makeup to be really natural and not too over the top, and my MUA in China achieved that and she was so good (really one of the best MUAs ever). I sent my MUA photos of how I wanted my makeup and hair to be like. Also, I went for regular facials every month to make sure I didn’t have any breakouts. My skin is really acne prone, going for monthly facials helped the makeup to sit well on my skin.
Finally, what’s your view on the cool-girl bride look? Want to be yourself and have that effortless look, but still have a memorable wedding gown for your walk down the aisle? Then Alexandra Grecco is the designer for you. The pictures speak for themselves, but why not try on her gowns for yourself!
