a state of being pleasantly lost in one’s thoughts; a daydream.
Every dreamer, lost in grand reverie remembers when they were told, “your dream will never be, more than a passing curiosity, you are lost in your reverie, you need to face reality, this is utter stupidity.” So here’s to all the dreamers who responded with a belief that the tide will one day turn, and the veil of darkness would lift, this moment of victory would shine on the horizon, like a golden dawn for bathed in glory. Belief that love will overcome, that two families will get along, that hard work will keep us together, that victory is within reach, the world needs more dreamers and doers and climbers and thinkers and builders.
Bridal dress maker, Anna Campbell has created by hand, a magnificent wedding gown, with a romantic antique feel. We feel like we stepped back in time to some other golden era of history.
Prewedding photography in Korea is quite famous in Asia. We are happy however, to think even more outside of boundaries, beyond the stock poses, and same backgrounds and push creativity to its limit, to create something special for everyone. We are huge fans of the editorial photography style of Annie Leibovitz and Norman Jean Roy, two legendary names who can create on the spot a visual feast for everyone. Norman Jean Roy in particular inspires us as he is like the Bruce Lee of the photography industry. With a philosophy of formlessness, shapelessness, preferring that everything on the shoot day is fresh and not overly planned, Norman Jean Roy creates stunning compositions, and elegant timeless set pieces that stir the heart and create a symphony of photography from every set. We do our best to carry the same spirit, plan but watch for the emotion of our brides, and find the light and the best angle for her.
What more can we say about this exceptional wedding dress by Australian designer Anna Campbell, each bead is stitched by lovingly by hand. We imagine that it’s straight out of a storybook, where in some mystical place, a far away princess, lost in reverie, awaits news from her beloved.
Princess today, but some day, she shall be Queen.
