Black Rocks and Ivory Bones Alternative Wedding Inspiration

Today’s wedding inspiration comes from the volcanic rock fields of Utah, and is quite simply, amazing! The pictures of this incredible alternative wedding inspiration shoot by Miesh Photography blew us away.

With geometric and geological inspiration playing a big part in wedding styling right now, this shoot fits perfectly with this growing trend. It’s edgy, bold, alternative and definitely cool and quirky!

We love the mix of the edgy landscape and modern elements used to create such amazing styling. There is a real bohemian feel to the bridal styling with the stunning oversized, loose bouquets with draping ribbons, cool hair accessories, twig crowns, boho dresses and raw crystal jewellery.

The moody setting of the volcanic rocks really set the scene for this shoot. The wedding pyramid rock-look cakes, antique platters for place settings, rugged wedding stationery and bone details all bring this black rocks and ivory bones alternative wedding inspiration together.

If you are searching for inspiration for an alternative wedding then this shoot will rock (pardon the pun) your world!

Harsh Landscape

“We wanted to show how much beauty this seemingly dark and desolate landscape offers.

“Playing off the juxtaposition of the feminine elegance and harsh landscape, we incorporated a lot of geometric or modern items, as well as overly feminine antique dresses and accents.

“This part of the earth is seemingly season-less, which can make it feel timeless and non-changing.”

The array of bodices and skirts can be mixed and matched seamlessly, and beautiful overlays and trains can be styled with any number of slip options.


Each dress in the new collection is truly delightful, but our favourite dress is Azelea. This dress has a beautiful illusion neckline, tulle overlay featuring nude shoulders, and lace detailing.

We absolutely adore the neckline. The illusion that the dress sits off the shoulders, when actually there is a beautiful nude tulle layer, is stunning.


Next up is Ellie – we just adore this dress. The corded lace overlay is divine and gives such a romantic feel to this gorgeous wedding dress.
