Editorial Fest 2014: Elopement Editorial

Posted by Janna Simpao

A few weeks ago, Bride and Breakfast held its first ever Editorial Fest in Privato Hotel. With the promise of shooting three different editorials simultaneously, we wanted to be a bit more creative. Since elopements are becoming more and more popular nowadays, we thought, “Why not shoot one?”

Here are a few reasons why we think it’s pretty cool to have an elopement (wedding) or elopement shoot:

  1. An elopement is not too expensive but can be very, very pretty. Imagine being able to style your dream wedding, have a smaller and cozier affair, and have a photographer capture it for a fraction of the amount you’ll spend for a big wedding. And if you still wanna celebrate with family and friends, you can host a dessert party afterwards!
  2. An elopement shoot would mean that the couple will have their photos/video taken in their “intimate wedding” apart from the bigger wedding that we can’t seem to live without. This is a great alternative to an engagement shoot, one you can even show on you grand wedding day.

With that in mind, we knew we needed a superb team (check out our superstar supplier roster at the end of this post) to show how beautiful an elopement can be, as well as bring to life the industrial-rustic-geometric theme we have envisioned. To start off, every decor detail executed by Bluebarn was drop-dead gorgeous. The rest of the talented people behind this shoot also delivered something extraordinary and awe-inspiring. After you see this, you might just have to take us up on that suggestion to elope.

If you’re like us, you’d probably drool over all this prettiness captured by Nelwin Uy (we are still teary-eyed!) and be totally smitten over the video by Ian Cruz Films at the end of this post!

A Grecian Glow

Posted by Bianca

Anyone who knows me well enough can tell you that if I could jet set away to ANY place in the world, I would pick the stunning isles of Greece without missing a heartbeat. It’s been on my bucket list for the longest time, and today I’ve got all the more reason to go! You see, Nice Print Photography sent over the most beautiful photos of Dane and Genelie’s destination fête, and if I’m being honest, I might be looking up flights right now. Just think… Minimalist architecture, cool waters, and a gorgeous wedding… Who wouldn’t want to transport to a dream like that?

The Radiant and Refined

Posted by Janna Simpao

Speechless. That’s what I was when I saw these photos of Jon and Merryl’s wedding captured by J Lucas Reyes. Having attended the wedding myself, I can say that everything was truly exquisite both in photographs and in real life. For one, the bride Merryl, being a stickler for details, made sure everything exuded understated sophistication. From the invitations, to her gown, and even to the ribbon of her bouquet… each was simple yet breathtaking. And of course, Jon, who is a photographer, was quite dapper in his navy blue tux–notice those super adorable camera cufflinks! With all these amazing elements set against the beautiful Shangri-La’s Boracay Resort and Spa we can say that we live for these kinds of beach weddings. Loveliness overflows.

An Endearing Ease

Posted by Bianca

It only took about two seconds into Lar and Ann’s engagement shoot for us to realize that we had our hands on something endearingly special. We’re talking about the perfect combination of effortless outfit choices (that rich yellow dress Ann is wearing is to die for!), majestic scenery, and breathtaking snaps taken by the one and only Benjie Tiongco! Don’t those three things just sound like the best complement to a lovely Saturday just like today? Sooooo, what are you waiting for? Swoon till you drop with us today!
