Styled Shoot - Marsala Princess

From Natasha Corrie Photographer;

I am a fan of marsala and was thrilled to see that Pantone named it 2015 colour of the year. I think that there is nothing more fabulous than when the bride wears colour and add to that sequins and I am in love. I wanted to do something that highlighted colour in regards to wedding dresses and so began the inspiration for ‘Marsala Princess’.

To create a wedding vibe that complimented the deep earthy tone that Marsala is known for, the shoot had to take place in nature. The Beerburrum forest set the scene for our opulent bohemian wedding that would speak to the bride that likes to do things in a non-conventional way. The setting winter sun helped to have a romantic and whimsical feel to the images.

Kaila Vallis Make-Up and Jessika Loren- Make-up and Hair added the gorgeous touches to the models’ make-up and hair and they too were inspired by the free spirited bohemian bride who is prepared with effortlessly flawless make up with rich earthy browns and champagne highlights. The hair, the same, soft romantic curls with flower crowns to add the cream to our forest wedding pie.

Christine at White Thistle Floral created the bouquet that perfectly complimented our Marsala dress. She used muted-neutral toned flowers, some dusty pink mauves, a touch of dark and some cranberry pink to clash with the Marsala. This combined with the interesting texture of the bouquet added to the opulent feel of the shoot. The flower crowns featured the same wild textures and muted tones.

I worked with Amanda at Adorn Event Hire to choose pieces for the table that you would expect to find on an opulent bohemian wedding table. We sourced brass urns and candlesticks from St Vincent De Paul's and also found the beautiful crystal glasses that feature on the table. We then added florals consisting of wild greenery and fresh flowers with the same muted tones as in the bouquet. The combination created a whimsical and romantic table setting with lots of candlelight. The table also featured a semi-naked cake by Par-T-Cakes and additional props by Hodgepodge Hire.
