A dreamily romantic bridal inspiration shoot on the Oregon coastline.....featuring the 'Galatea' gown
|'Galateia', a beaded lace and tulle romantic wedding dress by Joanne Fleming Design|
These wonderfully romantic images were shot on film by multi-award winning destination-wedding specialists Archetype Studios.
I was lucky enough to meet them earlier in the year at a workshop in the South of France (organised by the fabulous Norwegian Wedding Blog), so was really thrilled to be invited to lend a gown for a bridal inspiration shoot they were organising, to take place in early August on the epic Oregon coast. Koby and Terilyn of Archetype, together with stylist Roxanne of The Foraged Fern, certainly know how to put a team together, and it was lovely to see how their vision bought the work of multiple bridal specialists together so perfectly.....
I hope you enjoy this dreamy coastal love story as much as I did.
Full credits at end of the post.

|1920s inspired feather embroidered tulle and silk satin blue and gold flapper dress by Joanne Fleming Design|
After the discovery of Tutankhamen's tomb in 1922 by Howard Carter the world became gripped by 'King Tut mania', and the fashion world of course got in on the act, with the influence of the new discoveries of the ancient world inspiring many designers all through the mid '20s. Here's a JFD take on the look...the opulent gold embroidered feather tulle and lapiz lazuli silk satin echoing the vivid colours of the famous death mask of the young Egyptian king.
I've named the dress after the silent screen star Theda Bara, in deference to her 1917 starring role as Cleopatra, which although nearly a decade before Carter's find, really set the scene for the whole Ancient Egyptian revival.....
