THESE PLAYFUL WEDDING IDEAS ARE A DREAM COME TRUE!
Inspired by Katy Perry’s song Teenage Dream, today’s styled shoot is truly magical!
“I wanted to walk down the aisle at my own wedding to this song but I didn’t because I didn’t think that was the ‘proper’ thing to do.” Began Julie, the photographer behind the concept.
“As they say, hindsight is 20/20 and I really wanted to inspire brides to have fun planning their weddings. It’s not about doing the right thing for anyone else, and we shouldn’t take ourselves too seriously.”
“The lyrics to the song are beautiful, playful and ultra romantic. We wanted to show brides the way to plan a unique wedding, is to listen to their hearts and start with authentic inspiration that can come from just about anywhere.” She explained.
“The freeform balloon arch was our starting point. We wanted something playful and romantic, but still bridal. This very talented group of artists built this piece onsite to create it’s fun and organic feel. Mixing large statement flowers among balloons of varying sizes to create visual interest, the arch is the focus of this eclectic wedding ceremony. Grouping large pillows, cozy blankets and all the comforts of home into each cozy nest in the ceremony space, furthered the eclectic festival feel.”
“The couture bridal jumpsuit was the perfect compliment to this wedding gown. We knew we wanted to create two bridal looks with personality. Leaving behind traditional gender roles, our brides both rocked a feminine look unique to their personalities. Combining contrasting structures and textures with complimentary fabrics and colours was the perfect way to create visual interest in the bridal attire.”
“We used as many of the natural elements of the venue as we could to incorporate the feel of the venue into the decor. The placement of the ceremony, cake table and the reception table was intentionally designed to consider the lighting, back ground colours and the overall story we were telling.”
“The handmade confetti incorporated the colour palette with a mix of textured papers, glitter, and sequins. We placed cones made from the pages of old books around the ceremony seating to include this design element into the guest seating, whilst the watercolor cake was paired perfectly with the invitations and menus and the ornate bronzed detailing infused the eclectic theme.”
“We took our brides up to the top of the river valley to get cozy with the sheep and horses grazing the last of the summer grass. With a little time and patience we were soon surrounded by the animals who were curious of the bouquet and balloons.”
