Creating a styled shoot is not merely a task of assembling elements, but a meticulous curation of wedding design aimed at inspiring soon-to-be brides and grooms in their own wedding planning journey.
My inspiration for this shoot stemmed from multiple sources: the vibrant magenta hue, Pantone's colour of the year, and my love for bold, bright colours. Additionally, the release of the Barbie movie this year evoked a sense of nostalgia, reminding me of the joy and playfulness of love. I wanted this styled shoot to capture that exuberance.
The first and crucial task on my checklist was finding the perfect venue. It had to be a chic London setting with stunning interiors and exquisite gold accents. One Belgravia emerged as the ideal venue, offering a sophisticated backdrop to bring my vision to life. Its timeless elegance and opulent details perfectly complemented the vibrant colour palette I had in mind.
As the wedding design evolved, I incorporated pattern details into the stationery, which seamlessly tied together the table design. This allowed the theme to flow from the place settings to the overall decor, creating a cohesive and visually stunning narrative.
I was passionate about infusing personal touches throughout the shoot. The inclusion of unique elements like distinctive shoes, a beautifully crafted wedding favour gift box, and luxurious stationery not only added depth to the story but also showcased the importance of those intimate, personal details in any wedding. In the end, this styled shoot was a labour of love, an embodiment of nostalgia and contemporary trends, and an expression of the pure joy that weddings bring.
