Imagine a place where the people feel free, the sun shines over 300 days of the year and spirituality is in the wind that carries it….a couple of places may have come to mind, but the magical island that I’m referring to is Ibiza – one of my most favourite places on earth. You can imagine how excited I felt when this brilliant shoot fell into my inbox, submitted by Maria Simon. Photographer Maria is actually Berlin born, but like many of us, found peace, solace and joy on the famous Mediterranean island and now spends most of her year living and working there. The dream right? There’s so much to love about this shoot if you are an aspiring unconventional bride, as it mixes a broad range of styling and unusual looks. The result really captures the essence of Ibiza – diverse, wild and full of romantic, hazy love. It’s just beautiful.
Maria couldn’t have captured this shoot without an incredible production and research team, offered by Once Upon a Time Ibiza and Tahnee Lee from In Your Dreams. We adore this collaboration and can’t get enough of the countryside sunset shots and the pretty eye gems. Bohemian and wild is where it’s at this Tuesday….. Hope you enjoy it!
Wild, boho and free in Ibiza……
Words by Maria Simon of Marnosuite
With this collaboration we wanted to create an unconventional bridal shoot for the girl who is planning to get married in Ibiza. We took a bohemian approach and matched this with classy elements and high-end fashion by using super recognisable designer brands. The models pose looks that are easy going and non formal, yet wild with a timeless elegance. This is really why we chose luxury fashion staples like Chanel and Vivienne Westwood – vintage brands with a modern edge.
The objection of the shoot was to create styles which demonstrate the modern, natural and confident woman who owns her unique beauty and mixes diverse styles within her look.
