Featured in Issue 30, this golden floral wedding inspiration was captured and conceptualized by Kate Destiny Photography to show brides of all shades and sizes that their bridal portraits can represent each part of their unique identities.
From the bold and moody to the elegant and refined, every bride can find inspiration in this golden floral-styled shoot. Sprinkled with pops of yellow paired with just the right touches of gold, Kate Sandercock of Kate Destiny Photography thought of every elegant detail.
The shoot features a sophisticated tablescape laden with a crisp white tablecloth, white plates with gold trim, and gold utensils. Vintage yellow chalices, golden-yellow candlesticks, and luscious floral centerpieces sprinkled with yellows, oranges, and soft pinks were the focal points of the display.
However, at its core, her bridal portrait session was all about bringing size representation to the forefront of bridal.
Size inclusivity is so important, and we have some exceptional designers who create their gowns with all body types in mind. Every body type and every bride deserves to have representation. I hope this piece inspires a real bride who often feels unseen.Kate Sandercock (Kate Destiny Photography)

Pushing the traditional bridal boundaries, I reached out to Blair Nadeau to create a one-of-a-kind grey veil. This statement piece, as well as a custom shoulder necklace, created the moody, dimensional, and dramatic portraits I was hoping for.Kate Destiny Photography
Bridal portraits are the perfect opportunity for brides to showcase their unique personalities, and fashion plays a large role in creating the aesthetic that defines them as brides. Whether that’s bright and cheery, or moody and somber, fashion helps to define bridal identity. Often we only see one side portrayed.Kate Destiny Photography
Thank you to my beautiful model Grace and the exceptional team who brought my vision to life.Kate Destiny Photography
