Honouring the Romance of Writing Love Letters

As avid readers and lovers of letter writing, we fell in love when we saw this day inspired by exactly that! Beautifully soft tones and textures, complimented by sentimental accessories created an utterly romantic setting in a New York park. We asked photographer Tara Bielecki to tell us about the inspiration for this beautiful setting.  

The Inspiration

I really wanted this editorial shoot to capture the nostalgia of writing love letters and the passion of those words in the letters. Love letters have long been a way for couples to remain in touch when distance separates them. I love how some couples still honor this tradition with gifts or cards on their wedding day, while spending their mornings apart in preparation for the ceremony. I aimed to capture this longing of your great love with the elegance and strength that comes from that distance.

The Elements

The gown from is from the 2017 Collection of Saint Isabel Bridal. Her gowns are so whimsical and feminine and this gown was the perfect fit for this shoot. The heirloom jewellery is from the 1930s and I adore the ruby ring that mirrors the colour palette from the bouquet. I particularly love that heirloom engagement rings are making a trendy comeback.
