Gothic Romance - Styled Shoot 2018

This stunning and bold styled shoot took place at the end of last year. I am excited to share the finished look and a link to the behind the scenes video footage and publication online with Wedding Inspirations - Mad Love. 

The inspiration came from trying to appeal to a more alternative bride,

those that don't want to get married in an a -typical white wedding dress

with pastel themed decor. It’s beautiful and definitely trending but so it

has become so every day for those of us in the wedding industry. This

shows brides that they can think outside the box and still have a classy

beautiful wedding even if it is more gothic and dark. Often enough gothic

when used as a theme can come across as common, this shoot shows

that if you combine a good amount of soft and floral elements it can

soften a very often harsh and hard look. The lighting was intentionally far

darker and more dramatic, we also avoided being overly "lovey and

romantic" as not all couples are comfortable with PDA and so we wanted

a very posed, strong and somber look which melded well with the

theme.

 

 

Putting the overall design together and selecting the right decor and

flowers to compliment a concept is always my favourite part! We

decided on creating an intimate setting where you can then take the

concept and expand it into your own traditional wedding set up of formal

tables. Loose floral arrangements and lots of candles for the tables.

The hydrangeas within the floral centre piece and bouquet really brought

out the bold colour choices in contrast to the berries and greenery.

Cindy also created the most beautiful loose flower crown for our model

that enhanced but softened the gothic concept so perfectly.
