Editorial Feature: KWH in New York

NEW YORK, NEW YORK! Oh its always such an exciting feeling seeing KAREN WILLIS HOLMES gowns featured in editorials on the other side of the world, especially the fashion capital NYC. 

We fell in love with this editorial, photographed by the extremely talented Guy Vindigini Photography as soon as it landed in our inbox. 

Inspired by the iconic location of New York, the team shot this editorial in Brooklyn with the background of Downtown NYC. This editorial is the perfect homage to Karen's first US flagship store, which was opened in Soho, NYC earlier this year. 

Guy explains to us that the shoot was everything he invisioned 'I knew that I wanted to work with vendors in my neighborhood. But the best part of collaborating with my team was the quality of work and time that each vendor donated. Everyone really gave it their all and the end result is definitely something to be proud of' .

As seen in: WHITE MAGAZINE- Aleks & Andrew

The beautiful country wedding of Aleks and Andrew was recently featured on the polished wedding and inspiration blog WHITE MAGAZINE. The stunning bride wore KWH by KAREN WILLIS HOLMES 'Maria' Gown. The magical day was held in an aircraft hanger in the countryside. Through the images you could tell the couple were surrounded by their loving family and friends and shined the whole day. 

The proposal

After a quick power shop after work, Andrew blindfolded me as I entered our house. When I opened my eyes I saw Andrew down on one knee and as I looked up I saw ‘marry me?’ painted on the wall, which also happened to be the last room in our house left to renovate. There were rose petals throughout the entire house, fairylights in the garden, my favourite champagne was chilled and my favourite meals were cooked. The next morning Andrew whisked me away for a romantic weekend away at Kingscliff, which was where we also went on our first weekend away together. Even our Great Dane Bronson got to share the special moment, eating the 6 cupcakes Andrew had made especially for me.

What is it about each other that makes you swoon? 

Aleks: Not a day goes by where Andrew doesn’t make me laugh, which can be frustrating when I’m trying to be mad at him. As a qualified chef and builder, he can build me a home and cook me amazing dinners every night (particularly awesome as I’m yet to develop any cooking skills), which makes him my perfect man.

Andrew: It sounds cliché but Aleks is beautiful, smart, funny, the list goes on. She is the perfect package and brightens my day every day.  What she lacks in cooking skills she makes up for in everything else.

Any advice for future couples getting married? 

Enjoy every moment – from the planning, to the wedding day to the honeymoon. It is the most special and fun journey you will take together and you should cherish every moment as it all goes by so quickly.
