To celebrate their first year creating truly stunning couture bridal gowns GELIEFT invited a host of their previous brides to accompany their bespoke gowns and partake in this extraordinary celebratory 1st birthday shoot. The ultimate annual event for their past brides to wear their beautiful wedding gowns again and feel like princesses for a day! Soon there was a lineup of 15 Real Brides…

The inspiration for the shoot was the concept of a ‘Muse’- the epitome of lady-like glamour with contemporary exquisiteness; she is confident, determined and sensually demure. How amazing are these beautiful images…

Rina-Marie was one of the beautiful real brides photographed in her GELIEFT bridal gown on the day, We recently featured Rina-Marie’s wedding on Fly Away Bride, her very unique wedding gown was created from vintage doilies!

Happy Birthday GELIEFT! Thank you for sharing your beautiful 1st Annual Birthday Shoot with us. I’m already looking forward to seeing next years shoot!

Make sure to check back tomorrow to see the dreamy video shot by Theunis Stofberg and some more beautiful images from behind the scenes of the shoot.

Make A Wish!
