Love, Yu bridal show

Had done a post a couple of weeks back about wedding jewellery and taking part in a bridal show here. The official shots are out and the pieces are infinitely more beautiful when paired with the gorgeous gowns by Love, Yu and shot by 39 East Photography. Some of my favourite shots here:







Simple trio of necklaces in 18KT rose gold vermeil, worn in the front to dress up a simple neckline. Ee-Lyn's unorthodox wedding looks that would translate very well post-wedding. :)

A simple trio of necklaces worn backward to embellish the bare back of the bride.

Very etheral, this one. With shoulder-duster earrings in polished, hammered sterling silver and white quartz.


More shoulder duster earrings.


Another unorthodox option: pastel colours that worked beautifully with the champagne tones of the smoky quartz and 18KT rose gold earrings. Would work well with an organic bronze cuff too I think.

Loved the train of this one. Paired very simply with shoulder-duster earrings.

A integrated piece: Ee-Lyn's silk jersey gown and one of the art pieces from the label's hill tribe collection. Chunky silver ornaments with custom-cut aquamarines. Definitely unorthodox and definitely translatable post-wedding.

Finally, my absolute favourite dress of Ee-Lyn's collection. Not so much that I thought it was the most beautiful (they were ALL gorgeous) but rather, I loved that this dress could definitely be used after the wedding. Paired with slippers (although I doubt most brides will be using those on their wedding day) and the label's organic hilltribe silver cuff with white sapphires to further highlight the versatility of the look. Great also with shoulder-duster earrings.

Interesting fact silver made in Thailand is only made in villages outside of the main cities by Hilltribe families. Most patterns have been in there family for many years and can only be made by large order. There are no stores or one central place to purchase Hilltribe silver in variety other than from the large wholesale shops in the city. Mondays and Fridays are the days families will bring their goods to the main shops for sale and to pick up new orders. A trip to a silver village is a real eye opener to see how families work together to make beautiful silver pieces of art. All Handmade.
