Bring To Life Your Own Boho-Luxe Lavender Wedding Day

“In need of a dose of inspiration for your Boho-Luxe wedding day? Peruse through this enchanting styled photoshoot from Adorn Invitations amongst the vibrant backdrop of a country lavender field. A free-spirited couple dine on delectable gold flaked macaroons in a setting fit for a Moroccan Princess.”

“Utilising a colour scheme of lilacs, blushes, lavenders and golds – the brains behind this styled photoshoot is event designer and creative director of Adorn Invitations. With years of design experience, the head stylist spearheaded their own cow skull centrepiece and sourced gemstones and crystals from all over the globe to include in the lavish indoor and outdoor tablescapes. Wild floral arrangements of roses, succulents and greenery sprawl along the timber tables and gold foiled laser cut invitations with foil stamped bands introduce guests to the magical day. Gowns from Maggie Sottero and Nicole Spose feature with white henna and dainty floral crowns to create a look that is truly magical.

Wanting to create an aesthetic that was otherworldly and yet easily accessible to every day brides, the team endeavoured to create a harmony between an ethereal bohemian vibe and elegant romanticism. Textured tribal patterns in vivid purples contrast against sleek gold metallic lines to produce a wedding style for both the offbeat and traditional bride.”

Styled Shoot: Utterly Romantic Pink Couture Wedding Dress and Accessories by Chantal Mallett

Styled Shoot: Utterly Romantic Pink Couture Wedding Dress And Accessories By Chantal Mallett

Designer: Chantal Mallett | Photographed by Sanshine Photography

In Issue 3 of Buckinghams Wedding Magazine (download or order your free copy online) we featured this divine styled shoot from UK designer Chantal Mallett, Sanshine Photography & stylist Charlotte Munro but we promised to share ALL of Sanshine Photography’s fabulous photos with you online – so here they are in all their pink frothy glory – best served with a glass of pink champagne!

“Our shoot was initially inspired by the pink My Fair Lady-esque gown I had recently created and the ethereal location. Each piece I design captures the themes that repeat throughout my work; colour, romance, drama and a mix of period inspirations: Elizabethan, Edwardian and French Revolution.

The pink ‘Eliza’ dress is all romantic froth with dramatic silhouette.

The story behind this design is interesting in that it reflects, very much, on how designers design for clients. It was originally made for another shoot where I knew the photographer’s taste and the model’s look and with reference to the chosen setting, much like designing for a client, I designed the dress to a particular brief but on this occasion, one I had set for myself. I knew the photographer’s taste & the model who was a gamine, delicate, red head whom I knew would look fabulous in pink. She reminded me of Audrey Hepburn & I have always loved Audrey in the black & white race dress in My Fair Lady rocking an hourglass silhouette against her usual body type & I had a desire to create the same curvaceous silhouette for this look.

Further influenced by the romantic pink confection Eliza wears when she visits Mrs. Higgins for tea I made the decision to create this great silhouette in tulle in case it rained on set, which it did, so unlike silk, the dress would be fine. Herein the practicalities of shooting al fresco in the garden during an English Summer!

The opera cape our Eliza wore for the second look inspired by the film’s ball scene was inspired by a creation I had made previously for a client who wanted a ‘Shakespeare in Love’ theme. We paired the cape with a beautiful lace gown by Katya Katya Shehurina

When Sanshine Photography, stylist Charlotte Munro & I decided to shoot an all out My Fair Lady styled shoot a short while later, I also created the pink hat and parasol and one of my handmade tiaras was teamed with the opera cape to complete the look.” – Chantal Mallett
