Bridal Style at Sunset | BRIDAL GOWN, BEAUTY & JEWELLERY

Sunset in the Sunshine Coast hinterland is truly something else. Especially when you are wearing your bridal gown looking every bit the part on your wedding day.
Gazing out on the horizon for golden hour, making most use of the light and shadows, Sunshine Coast wedding photographer, Jacob Vinall, captured this bridal model magnificently. 

Bridal Gown + Accessories

Model Daneka wore removable billowing tiered sleeves with the lace applique silhouetted bridal gown. Hot tip: if you really want some dreamy shots at sunset, wear a long tulle veil that will give you so much gorgeous movement in your photos. It also serves as a real life filter for those softer shots and the ultimate bridal style. 

Bridal Hair & Makeup

Bridal hair and makeup was a classic, yet modern design. If you want to ask your makeup artist for this exact look that Melita McDonnell Makeup Artist applied, you’ll want to say you’d like a soft glam eye, blended to be gently smokey, paired with a nude lip, pink glow to the cheeks and skin that looks like skin with highlights in all the right places. 
Daneka’s hair was drawn back into a low textured bun with pretty and significant tendrils curled to frame the face. Did you know that some hair stylists will be able to trim your front layers a smidge if you need to have your style sit just right on your wedding day? The trick is you want to make sure your hair stylist is an experienced hairdresser as well, like all the styling team from Evalyn Parsons. If they need to do this for you, they’ll be sure to do it in a way that will mean you’ll still be happy with the length after the wedding day when your hair is worn as you regularly style it day-to-day. 

Bridal Jewellery

Richly coloured gems are having a real moment in bridal jewellery trends in 2024. More and more brides are erring towards Emeralds, Sapphires, and all shades of Topaz for their engagement rings. So why not complement these with a necklace and earrings set to match? Even if you’ve opted for a traditional Diamond for your wedding rings set, a dress ring and accessories sporting a gem is a beautiful way to tie in your bridal style with your wedding colour palette. McLean & Co. Jewellers have a stunning selection of sets like the Emerald and Diamond one worn by Daneka in store. Drop in to find something that will set off your bridal gown just right.
