Wedding Prep Sneak Peek 結婚式・披露宴の準備!! ①

Last-last week we did a pre-wedding photo shoot at The Aisle Bridal, a studio near my place. Prior to that, I was approached by an online boutique Sherry London for a collaboration. I thought my pre-wedding shoot would be the perfect occasion to feature a piece of their fine collection. As we were all mad-busy on the shooting day, there weren't enough opportunities to do a proper "Making of".
A mini "Making of" will be featured in my next post. Meanwhile, fred not, there's still quite a lot to see! While the actual photos in my wedding gowns and the dress are being retouched and developed by the cameraman right this moment, I've created follow-up photos of my choice made at Sherry London's.

Sherry London is an online boutique based in London, UK. They specialise in bridesmaid dresses, and dresses for special occasions. Making a choice was a difficult one because it's the first time I ever ordered an elaborate dress online. Or rather, it's the first time I ever attempt wearing something this elegant. I'm just very afraid I don't look good in such dresses. Lucky for me, there are just too many beautiful items at the store, which means there's definitely something for me somewhere. It took me two hours to shortlist a few from their huge collection, then finally decide on one. I was like, OK IT HAS TO BE THIS↓↓↓(Link)

先々週、シンガポールのザ・アイル・ブライダル(The Aisle Bridal)で結婚式の前撮りしてきた。
前撮りの直前、イギリス・ロンドンのオンラインブティック「シェリー・ロンドン」からアプローチがあったので、スタジオにお願いし、ショートドレスも撮影してもらったよん!  残念ながら本当忙しかったのでこの1着のメイキングはなかった。でもでも、自宅で追加で撮影したよん!

HERE IT COMES HERE IT COMES!!! Waaaaaaaait a minute. Something's not right...THE CRYSTALS ARE IN A DIFFERENT COLOUR! But heck, it's gonna look a lot more impressive and more bridal-ish compared to the image's black crystals. Anyway I'm so happy!

来た!!!けど、あれ?!どこかに違和感があって・・・ビジューの色はイメージ写真とちょっと違うwww まあ、こっちのほうがインパクトがあってブライダルっぽくて好きかも♪ 本番撮影はこんな感じだったが、自宅用だけなのでロック風にアレンジしてみた。 ブライダルだけじゃなく、会社/学校/友達のウェディングパーティーなのでも着ていけるおすすめなコーデ!レースとビジューのディテールで十分インパクトあるから、ヘアスタイル、アクセ、靴はできるだけシンプルにキープ。
What you see above is my styling for the actual photo shoot. Because the dress already has lots of glamourous details, it's best to keep the the hairstyle, accessories and shoes to the simplest. Theme - "Don't kill off the pwetty crystals!" As for my follow-up photo shoot today, I did a rock look. This look should be suitable for most social occasions.

Perhaps the dress was made for a western audience in mind, the length was longer than what I expected and it covered my knees. To make up for that, I've put on a pair of stilts. Check out the back of the dress as well, saturated with crystals.
Side swept / pony tails are highly recommended.
たぶん、ドレスは欧米用だから、チュールの部分はイメージより長くて、ひざをカバーしてしまった。 ヒールの高い靴で足で足を長く見せた。 後ろもビジューギッシリ♪
このドレスは重そうに見えるが、見た目よりずっと軽かった!一人でもスイスイと着れちゃうよ。いい布が使われてるから熱くも寒くもならない。写真を見るだけじゃ分からない機能付だよ!→→なんと、ブラジャー内蔵www こいうのは以外と助かる!(念のためにヌーブラも準備したほうがいいと思うけどね)

The dress isn't as heavy as it looks. It's quite light-weight so I could put in on effortlessly. The material used was of good quality and I wasn't feeling too hot or cold in it. One extra thing about the dress which you are unable to see here has a helpful built-in bra top! How nice would it be if all other brands' dresses have the same function too!

For size, I'm wearing an in-between of S/M (UK10). The store caters from XS to Plus Sizes. Customisation is possible with a small fee. The store makes your dress after you place your order. Staff from the store are very pleasant and friendly too! The store ships to almost everywhere on Earth so please take a look if you're interested!
