The Winter Bride: A Photo Editorial by Becky Yee
By Becky Yee & Ellen Lewis
A few months ago, Becky and I were brainstorming ideas for a bridal lingerie photo editorial. We were searching for an angle that defied the norm. Bingo! The Winter Bride! Why not focus on the empowerment of wizened women. Women that defy the mythology of aging. Women who, later in life, choose to marry and still want beautiful, sensual, and sophisticated lingerie for that special time. (Shown above Carol Coelho & Simone Perele)

In this photo series, we meet two women who prove that age really is just a number. Robin Sanet, a single 62-year-old health and wellness energy healer and Patrycja Piela, a 48-year-old breast cancer survivor and single mom of two grown kids. In this shoot, Robin stayed true to her professional mission wearing no makeup and leaving her hair au naturel. Patrycia was proud of the tattoo across her abdomen camouflaging her physical scars.
Thanks to the brands who helped us prove our point: Christine’s Lingerie, Lise Charmel, Simone Perele, Carol Coelho, Hanky Panky, NK IMODE, Blushing Bride Veils and Vienne Milano Hosiery.
