Be true…styled shoot

Posted on: May 15th, 2016 by Carolyn No Comments

It is a great privilege to be able to share this styled shoot with you.  It comes all the way from South Africa and showcases a number of well known creatives in the region.  Wedding styled shoots allow those involved to be creative without many limitations or restrictions, which is why they always end up being quite magical.  Although, it is not always easy or sometimes practical for a bride to put the same look together, there are always amazing and inspiring ideas that can be drawn from these shoots.  What I love about this styled shoot is that it encourages a bride and groom to be true to themselves while planning the details of their special day.  A few key points from the team explaining what this shoot was all about:

-“The bride`s look in terms of her wedding gown fitting experience, hair and makeup – the feminine! Who she really is and how she is comfortable showing herself off on this special day – whether innocent and soft, glamorous vixen or the natural, girl-next-door.”

-“The couple`s “brand” in terms of décor and setup – a bit of feminine and masculine to capture the essence of marriage.  A marriage is about commitment and the union of two people – starting a life together. You are accepting each other fully and announcing your “brand” to all your loved ones – “This is who we are, what we love and we want to share it with you!”

-“The bond between a couple – we were lucky enough to work with one of Toujours Wedding House’s previous brides who brought her hubby along for some of the photos – this created a genuine intimacy in the photographs as apposed to a forced connection.”
