This stunning bridal fashion shoot showcasing the gowns of Maria Gonzales comes to us from photographer Jessica Abby Photography. Although very much soft garden elegance, there’s an edginess to the styling with dramatic crystal necklaces, bold raspberry red lips and statement earrings that really modernise the looks.

Teaming up with a bevvy of talented wedding professionals including Vanessa Dzanovski, Biviano Florists, Olivia Marcheline, Jessica Kramp, Jennifer Melendez and Esma Voloder. Jessica says, “I aimed to create a shabby chic series that portrayed beauty but also shone simplicity. I set out to capture the beautiful relationship between dress and women to justify the importance of the final choice for their wedding day. I enjoyed working with natural light in amongst the park, I found my location while leisurely walking through Warringal Park in Heidelberg, Melbourne.”
