For this editorial we wanted to explore inspiration from the classic tale of the Hunchback of Notre Dame - and in particular a character who may be considered unconventional, fiery and reminiscent of brides breaking the rules. We wanted to bring to life the character of Esmeralda in an emotive and genuine way, and to capture her wild, bohemian essence - she's fiercely loyal and a family girl at heart, so we created a celebration that felt small, but very personal. We chose a colour palette inspired by earthy, fruity, and floral jewel tones, and echoed it throughout our decor, reminiscent of woodland festivals and the world of travelling minstrels. Esmeralda is the embodiment of a free-spirited bride with a deep love for nature - she's adventurous and playful, and we wanted our styling to reflect that in every detail.
