ABOUT ETERNAL SPELL

One of the biggest thrills for a bride-to-be is picking out her wedding dress. The joy of the hunt is followed by numerous fittings and bridal portraits. Then, she proudly wears it on her special day like the queen she is for all her friends, family, and soon-to-be husband to see. The dress is stored away after that, pushed somewhere far back into the closet of her home, collecting dust.

But it doesn’t have to be that way….

Melbourne based artist, Meg Cowell, has been critically acclaimed for her photo-based couture gown artwork, which she is now offering as a bespoke service for owners of treasured fashion. Each gown is carefully suspended and arranged in pure fresh water (this causes no damage to the material). The liquid acts as an agent for movement, allowing the garments to bloom into new forms in a deep boundless setting. The resulting effect gives character and life to the garments as they dance through the water, transformed and flower-like.

“I have so many friends getting married and searching for ways to commemorate their dresses and continue to enjoy them. I had the idea of photographing their dresses and the result is truly amazing.”

Meg Cowell offers a bespoke wedding dress imaging service carefully tailored to each bride's gown. Contemporary wedding dresses are not damageable by fresh water, every detail is carefully considered to ensure that the dress is not effected. If Meg feels that the dress would be in any way affected by the process she will consult with the client before beginning the work, (this has not been required to date!) As part of the service your dress will be steamed and lovingly restored back to its original beauty before it is returned to you.

“When Brides come to me I get so much joy in hearing all about their special day! It is so much fun to offer a way to carry on the excitement of the Wedding, after the day…”

If you would like your photograph framed, Meg can organize this for you. Meg can provide a range of framing options to protect and enhance your artwork, matching your décor, colour scheme, taste, and budget.

Meg Cowell is a professionally qualified expert.

Reviews

"Something that bothered me about my dress on the wedding day, and one of the reasons I had to have you shoot it, it looked so stiff and heavy in the pictures, and I love movement and texture. When I saw your article about how the dresses 'bloom' in the water I thought maybe she can make a beautiful image of my dress with more life than it really had, and when I look at that image I'll remember (my feelings, moods, emotions of the day) instead of the stiff structure of the dress.."

"What a wonderful way to enhance memory through the photo of the dress. A chance for others to remember. Rather than the dress be folded away this art becomes a trigger for celebration and reconnection with family and friends...."
