An editorial inspired by ‘The Bard’ himself, steeped in elegant, vintage touches, an Old World inspired palette and captured through the lens of fine art photographer Melanie Nedelko is bound to be utterly enchanting- especially with the creative style of wedding and event design company, A Very Beloved Wedding, leading the way.
Apart from being hypnotized by the rich blackberry, cream, gold and green hues weaved throughout this styled shoot, it’s all too easy to get swept away by the stunning headpieces on display from Niely Hötsch paired with exquisite Jenny Packham bridal gowns! This is one dream you definitely won’t want to wake from!
From Melanie Nedelko Photography: An abstract of Shakespear’s “A Midsummer Night´s Dream” inspired me to do this shooting which surpassed all the limits of my imagination. Every time I look at the pictures my heart still skips a beat.
This rocky, rough location was the perfect scenery, the ideal contrast to the beauty and softness of our gorgeous bride. Judith looked just stunning in her dresses designed by Jenny Packham. My idea was to create a contrast to the glamorous dresses so I sought a background that nobody would expect. That’s what made this inspiration shoot so special and exciting for me.
It was the first photoshoot that I did almost exclusively with my analoge camera. I can hardly believe it… Whenever I see the deep colors and soft skin tones it feels right that I chose analoge photography. Without my dear friend and mentor Pia, I would have never chosen this as my path. She trained my vision on things and taught me to focus on important details.
A very special thank you the fabulous and oh-so talented Melanie Nedelko for sharing this incredible vision with us!
