Today we are sharing our favorite photos from a recent Shakespeare inspired bridal photo session.
Many of Shakespeare’s most iconic scenes take place in gardens and forests (enchanted or otherwise). So, our botanical jewelry collection really sets the stage!
Photographer Katherine Callahan dreamed up this Modern Much Ado About Nothing wedding style idea after she rescued a beautiful edition of Shakespeare’s works from a garage sale. Initially, she was drawn to the collection’s stunning cover art.
(keep reading, we’ve got a gorgeous photo of the book a little further down)
Then, upon opening the book she became bewitched by the handwritten notes inside from the original owner, who lived during the 1800s!
When Katherine pitched us her vision for this style bridal editorial, we jumped at the chance to collaborate!
And while we’re big Shakespeare fans here at J’Adorn Designs, we think our botanical jewelry pieces take center stage.
Our much loved Modern Geometric Crystal Hair Comb is especially perfect for this look. That hair piece shines with botanical whimsy!
Altogether, Katherine’s MODERN vision for this Shakespeare inspired styled shoot is a captivating one. We appreciate how she dreamed up all the romance and depth of Shakespeare without letting it slip into a Renaissance Faire vibe.
So, the resulting look is whimsical while still being sophisticated.
Our one-of-a-kind Vintage Crystal Leaf Earrings add just the right touch of sparkle while carrying that natural, organic vibe with their clustered shape.
Because our silver Vine and Pearl Ring is feminine and delicate, it makes the perfect custom engagement ring for this feature. Currently, this ring is not listed in our shop. However, if it’s put a spell on you, please contact us!
(see… this beautiful Shakespeare collectors’ volume is totally worth scrolling for!)
Below, you’ll find the bride wearing our Silver Leaves and Crystal Pendant Necklace. It is beautifully framed by the gown’s neckline and compliments its beaded detail without upstaging the overall look.
