    Can anyone kindly tell me who the genius technician is behind the rose head piece? I must have it! It make me lay down and weep!

  • This is so seriously gorgeous in every single way.

  • Oh my! Those are truly ethereal, y’know. I just got here, and I’m not leaving now! I so love the first dress!! I would have to work out for 3 months to carry that off, though :P
    Thanks so much glamorous!!

  • Exquisite!

    Just stumbled upon your blog…it is truly inspiring!

  • The dresses are exquisite accessories to the hair pieces!!! I love the beauty of the compositions.

  • These photos are so lovely-it makes me want to re-design my wedding dress…too late!

  • Oh my goodness, I want the last dress :)

  • Alis–your mother was ahead of her time. How lovely the wedding photos must have been . . .

  • I must really like them all because I can’t choose which one is my favorite. The head pieces remind me of my mother though, she wore a big flower exactly on top of her head at her wedding. How avant-garde of her! Seeing these maybe I’ll follow her steps!

  • Perfect Bound — it is a little Gwyneth Paltrow/Annie Lebowitz, especially in feeling and mood.

  • Gorgeous dresses…I wish I have them all..

  • wow, these are beautiful. The detail in the second dress is incredible.

  • Anonymous–unfortunately the images came directly from the photographer’s official site, which does not credit the designer of the dresses, and as long as this is the direct source, that is the only credit is available and required.

    The publication {if any} was not listed on the photographer’s site, although if this series were published, the publication would most likely have listed the designer.

    Perhaps someone has seen these images elsewhere and knows who the designer is?

    Lovely! But does anyone know who designed the dresses? It would be nice if he or she was credited, as the dresses really make the photos.
