You may not be very familiar with the term ‘fine art wedding’, but we’ve no doubt if you’re a fan of US wedding blogs, or have ever Pinned a bridal guna in your life, you’ve come across these exquisitely styled celebrations. Fine art weddings are all about soft, romantic palettes, elegant, understated stationery, glam yet pared back tablescapes and of course at the centre of it all the graceful bride in the most alluring dress you’ve seen all day (if you’re browsing wedding blogs every day of the week of course.) These weddings are captured by photographers with an incredible eye for softness and light, and with the longer days and soft sunsets, we think Spring is the most perfect time for a fine art wedding in Ireland!
Couture designers such as Pallas, Paolo Sebastian and Inbal Dror are called upon again and again by brides looking for that romantic gown with a real wow factor, and many opt for non-traditional dresses with colour. Lately however more designers are popping up in Fine Art weddings – Mira Zwillinger, Elizabeth Dye, Willowby by Watters and plenty of Etsy designers – making the look a lot more accessible for brides with a budget. Today we’re sharing some of our favourite dresses that we think are perfect for a Spring wedding and a fine art bride.
