A series of poetic frames by Lara Hotz paint a reimagined picture of Shakespeare’s Ophelia. Inspired by stories of forbidden love and fleeting romance, these captures will allure you with their haunting beauty.

Our modern Ophelia is adorned in a veil sprinkled with flowers in an ode to the heroine’s penchant for florals, before descending into a brook for her impending death (…as the story goes).

If the images from this bridal fashion and boudoir editorial look familiar, you may have already spied them gracing the pages of HOORAY! Issue 6, where the editorial was originally published.

Today, we bring you part one of the editorial series, featuring a selection of previously unpublished frames. Ophelia_titleHOORAY_Ophelia-Bridal-Editorial_Lara-Hotz_B01HOORAY_Ophelia-Bridal-Editorial_Lara-Hotz_B02 HOORAY_Ophelia-Bridal-Editorial_Lara-Hotz_B03HOORAY_Ophelia-Bridal-Editorial_Lara-Hotz_B04 HOORAY_Ophelia-Bridal-Editorial_Lara-Hotz_B05HOORAY_Ophelia-Bridal-Editorial_Lara-Hotz_B06 HOORAY_Ophelia-Bridal-Editorial_Lara-Hotz_B07HOORAY_Ophelia-Bridal-Editorial_Lara-Hotz_B09
