Hair accessories are a huge hit with modern brides; however, it’s not always easy to find the right hair accessory given so many choices out there. If you are looking for something elegant, timeless, and easy to manage, headbands may be your perfect choice. They bring back childhood memories, and are never really out-of-style. You can wear your hair up or down with headbands, and they add enough detail to offset a more simple dress. See our picks of romantic bridal headbands below for your beauty inspiration today.

Spring may be just around the corner, but just before we welcome the new season, let’s enjoy the winter magic just a little bit longer. This frosty winter inspiration is brought to life by a team of artists in Swizerland, organized and photographed by the talented Andrea Kuehnis Photography . This beyond gorgeous styled shoot was born out of a desire to capture the beauty of the season. Get ready to be enchanted by this magical winter fairytale below.
Motivation & inspiration behind the shoot
Andrea Kuehnis:Getting married in the winter has something magical; however, in Switzerland, winter weddings are rare. Although sunny days are never a guarantee for summer in Switzerland, most couples are very concerned about the “cold, wet winter days”. Whenever I start to talk about winter weddings, concerns like “I don’t want to get wet”, “It’s too cold I don’t know what to wear”, and “there are no flowers and greens” would arise.
I am typical swiss – I love the snow and the cold. I’m always stunned by the beauty this season shows when snowflakes fall down to earth and the landscape is covered with a white blanket. I wanted to show them how magical and breathtaking a winter bride can be. There are many advantages of a winter wedding, such as booking availability, creative designs, and unique styles and scenery. I wanted to share my love for the winter with my couples and help them visualize the beauty of a winter wedding. Both women in this styled shoot are real brides, and their beauty is natural and realistic.
I always wanted to shoot in the winter, and this styled shoot certainly satisfied my desire. Thanks to everyone who helped making my dream come true!
Andrea Kuehnis: Organizing such a big shoot for the first time was challenging. I feel very blessed that every professional I approached said yes immediately and wanted to be part of this project.
Finding the best date, the right brides, and the perfect location for the shoot were not easy. We had to find a snowy place that allowed cars, and with a hotel nearby for us to rest and eat. Once the date was fixed, we could only pray that everything would work out just fine – the flowers would be delivered on time, no one would get sick, and that it won’t be raining. Walking and changing accessories in the snow was also a bit challenging, but everything turned out very well and we had just the perfect amount of snow to create our winter fairytale style shoot.
About Andrea Kuehnis Photography
I am a Switzerland-based wedding photographer. I started photographing when I was a teenager, and became a professional photographer in 2011. I love to show people the beauty I see through my lens, and this passion keeps growing stronger everyday.
I love destination weddings and shooting in different countries, so far my weddings have taken me to Maldives, Santorini, Italy and Austria. My couples are very important to me. I believe that a wedding should be unique and personal to the couple, and I feel truly honored to be able to capture the most wonderful and personal day of their lives.
