Step into the world of 007 in this James Bond inspired styled shoot. Sophisticated, elegant, and modern – this Bond-Chic styled shoot is certain to leave you “shaken, not stirred.” Read all about the inspiration and design elements below.
The definitive James Bond character, 007, has intrigued audiences since 1953. He’s known world-wide as the seducing, charming, perfect balance of smooth, suave, sophisticated gentleman agent as well as a tough, violent, and ruthlessly cold, handsome thug in a dinner jacket. Bond is always surrounded by beautiful women. Put the two together and you have a stunning wedding inspiration shoot!
Styling reflects all that is Bond: strong, sexy, smart, modern & clean. Clean vertical lines, glass & steel, minimalism, simple florals, and a Bond color palate of black & white, with a mix of reds, burgundies and pinks, keep the focus centered.
Of course, the groom is dressed in a classic white dinner jacket, black bow tie and signature red corsage. While his bride dresses sleek, sexy, clean and elegant. The bride is wearing the “Thelma & Louise” gown ensemble. The beautiful lace over-dress removes to reveal a short, sassy shift….great for a fast get-away! British women love their hats, so of course this Bond Girl wears a fascinator fit for the occasion.
