You may not believe this but it’s true – here at Smashing the Glass, we have never featured a styled shoot. No, really, if you don’t believe us, go back and check (it’s an excuse to gaze at hundreds of pretty weddings, if nothing else).
But, as they say, there’s a first time for everything – and we were really holding out for something special, and something that specifically catered to Jewish wedding traditions and aesthetic.
Enter Kylie McMichael, our much-loved STG Recommended Vendor and hair and makeup artist extraordinaire! Kylie, wishing to showcase her love of Jewish weddings, put together a team of luxury, fine-art wedding professionals to create a fashion-forward, yet timeless shoot.
Of course, that dream team included two more of our fabulous Recommended Vendors, Fulham Palace, an idyllic setting for Jewish weddings, and The Golden Letter, who acted as a Jewish consultant on the shoot, and whose wonderful modern-Hebrew stationery designs feature below.
We were absolutely blown away by it, and it’s a real treat to have something styled especially for us Jewish gals. Have a read of Kylie’s full account below, soak in the sensational images by Kitty Wheeler Shaw Photography and watch the gorgeous video by Irene Piera Films.
Oh, and, of course, if you love what you see as much as we do, get pinning, and if you want to find or book any vendors for your own big day, credits are, as always, at the bottom of the piece.
A fine art Jewish photoshoot
Being the first Jewish styled shoot to ever appear on Smashing The Glass is incredibly exciting. I always wanted this shoot to mean something, to be something special. It’s a 10-months-in-the-making-homage to every couple that has ever hired me, and every Jewish bride who wants something truly stunning and fine-art inspired to draw ideas from, for the most beautiful day of their lives.
I decided to hand pick a team of luxury, fine-art wedding professionals who truly get the awesomeness involved with Jewish weddings, and wanted to showcase what they can do.
