We wanted to inspire the modern urban chic bride that loves to play with rich and playful dark colours. This is for brides that are not scared of trying something different instead of the normal soft and romantic look. Featured in the Summer 2016 Edition of Wedding Inspirations Magazine this was a vision that came to live with a great team. Here are some of my favourites from the shoot.
I remember the nights we spent under city lights
The dresses were supplied by young French Born designer Leé Ferrei. We chose to use her designs because we felt it embodied the understated elegance Urban brides usually look for. The designs were clean-cut & minimalistic; while still maintaining femininity without being too soft and were perfect for this theme.
The first dress that caught my attention was the one with the peplum frill; as it is very current with what celebrities are showcasing on the red carpet at the moment and definitely a dress for the trendsetter bride.
Our concept allowed us to really test the boundaries with lush floral’s cascading over the table, and really making the floral’s the focal point of the whole tablescape.
The key elements would be the table setting, and the suspended arch. We wanted to ensure that everything was suited together by emphasizing on the rich colours transcending with the overall shoot. The gorgeous rich tones of reds and gold’s allowed us to create a floral masterpiece where we included romantic chandeliers above the table décor and a gorgeous floral band covering the centre chandelier.
The table décor was a combination of floral and marsala red linen, in order to really bring in a variation between the various place settings.
Our gorgeous stationery was custom designed for this shoot, and added a subtle touch to every component for the table décor to really bring everything together. The glassware was a range of amber and red glassware combined with cut crystal, my personal favourite just to add in another dimension to the table.
