MODERN ROMANCE AT THE RUTH BANCROFT GARDENS
Inspired by the bride’s natural beauty, this team of creatives styled this elopement in homage to her natural and organic vibe. These sweethearts ooze love and style and with a cactus garden as a backdrop and vibrant pink and peach florals to match, this shoot screams modern romance with edge.
“We knew we wanted to incorporate colours that would pair well with the setting while still standing out against all of the tan dirt and greenery of the Cacti and succulents at the venue.” Began photographer, Kelley.
“When we first saw Ruth Bancroft, I was taken back by how everything flowed naturally and beautifully and was maintained without being manicured. This aesthetic inspired the look of the florals to have that same organic flow to them while still looking beautifully composed.” She told us.
“Muted shades of mustard, orange, peach and coral set the tone for this colour scheme knowing that they would complement the surroundings of the gardens while still standing out. Keeping most of the florals simpler in design, the asymmetrical flowing installation that hung above the bride and groom was made to be the focal point of the day.” Kelley explained.
“With the overall style being an elevated natural and organic vibe, the bride’s gown had to fit the look, also. The gown she wore was the first gown I saw, and I just knew it would be perfect. The gown felt slightly bohemian to me with its crochet details and slight ruffle effect enhanced by the gauze material it was made from; something very befitting of a natural succulent garden elopement!”
