After a long stretch of ever-changing restrictions, this colourful VIC styled shoot was a much-needed mood booster for couples in the midst of (trying) to plan a wedding. Inspired by warm, vibrant, earthy tones with a fresh twist on the 70s, it was a fun and unique collaboration involving some of VIC’s most talented minds.
Captured by Lovegood Images at Poh Events, it showcased a handful of NZ label Rue De Seine’s bridal gowns from The Bridal Atelier and eclectic styling from Whole Lotta Love Creative. Each element was inspired by a mood board initially posted by celebrant Ally featuring an “array of warm, rust, bohemian inspired vibes” and the flowers by Babylon Flowers fit the brief perfectly.
“I decided to step out of my comfort zone and float the idea of pulling together a styled shoot with this mood board as the starting point”, says Meleah of Lovegood Images. “I fine-tuned the shoot proposal, wanting to create something in keeping with the fun, eclectic vibe but that the wedding world may not have seen before.”
It clearly worked, with every detail bringing a new and exciting element to the shoot including the rainbow cookie wedding favours, the Austin Powers era signage, the white and gold cutlery, the colour-themed cocktails and gorgeous 70s style hair and makeup.
