Romantic Russian Spring Bridal Shoot
OLESYA UKOLOVA PHOTOGRAPHY
Timeless elegance against a backdrop of the most stunning historic Russian palace, plus an abundance of delicate florals, combine to give us this refined bridal vision. Each element is an impeccable work of art creating an understated and romantic take on vintage with a nod to Spring in the prettiest palette of pastels…..
The soft shades of pink and purple in the seasonal blooms gives the ornate, light-filled rooms a sense of charm and sets the scene perfectly for a sweet bridal shoot. The brides’ dreamy wedding dresses, with their tulle skirts, adds the required romance, whilst the light blackberry meringue tower is the just the dessert for such an occasion!
Before we get swept away by the beauty of these images, a few words from photographer Olesya Ukolova“This photoshoot was inspired by Spring, and the youth of the nature. This is the story of two sisters who spend time in their luxurious palace in anticipation of the spring sun. They are drinking tea, reading books and dancing with each other. Dresses made of weightless materials emphasised the lightness of the two girls and vintage books and postcards created the historical touch to our shoot. We also added some flowers to the hairstyles of our girls to show the oncoming of spring season.”
Wow…. isn’t it just wow?? The setting, the details, the light…. it takes my breath away every time I look at it. A huge thankyou, as always, to all the talented wedding pros behind the scenes who brought every beautiful detail together so perfectly. And a special thankyou to photographer Olesya Ukolova for not only capturing it all so flawlessly but also for letting me share it with you here.
