Tagged: Romona Keveza Ruffled Champagne Gown

Jane Austen mesmerized millions with her literal depictions of beauty and romance of privileged lives of 19th century England. Austen’s novels are a feast to the soul as well as to the eyes. Movies of her novels captivate with the grandeur of architecture, sculpted garden settings, wardrobe, and natural scenery.

In our Austen-inspired photo shoot, we incorporated some elements from the era with a modern twist. Lace, ribbons, books, loosely arranged floral elements and an outdoor table scape are incorporated to give that Old English romantic style. For our model bride, Isabelle, we incorporated Alexander McQueen’s off-white lace Victorian gown and Romona Keveza’s ruffled champagne gown.
