I've been researching a trip to France for sometime now, somewhere I have always wanted to go. Specifically, the small towns filled so much history and stories, hidden gems. There is something about the cobblestone floors, greenery growing on the raw concrete walls and pastel coloured doors and refined ballrooms that overflow with romance, bliss and elegance.
When conceptualizing and designing this shoot, I created a colour theory filled with pastel coloured tones and lots of different textures. Our primary colour palette was powder blue, pale peach and a languid lavender. I've been dreaming about these colours and how to tell their story together. We wanted to mix fun textures in as well, gold metals and velvet linens. We also added some fun details as my brides are always looking for something different and fun for their guests to experience, we had some custom flavored popsicles made - to match the colour palette for each guest.
Pastel, but make it fashion! We wanted a whimsical dress, with lots of layers, very playful and fun! Our second dress has a delicate lace pattern on it, to top it off we added some dainty and textured jewelry to emulate that fairytale look.
For the tablescape, we draped a pink velvet tablecloth, we added walnut charger plates, gold rim wine glasses and blue water goblets. We also added gold metal taper and tealight candle holders to elevate the table look. The unstructured centrepieces were filled with pastel hues that amplified the design concept and inspiration from the quaint towns in france. This cake is dressed in small intricate flowers, with our muted colour palette and gold flakes - swoonworthy.
I would advise brides to not be afraid to use a little colour and textures to bring their design concept to life. Do what is true to both of you as a couple - you won't regret it later.
