Spanish Style Forest Reception colour inspires this wonderful wedding editorial on Vancouver Island. The colours stimulate the senses, make the heart beat faster and bring out the sensual nature.
Inspired by stones underfoot that might otherwise be overlooked, honey and ochre slabs of earth from a Cobble Hill acreage were the catalyst for the jewel tones. These are paired with deeply hued florals, textiles, and place settings – along with Spanish inspired tapas culminating in this sultry look on both a manicured green and the wilds of an arbutus cove.
The Spanish Style is carried through the gorgeous lace gown featured ballet inspired bodice. The piece de resistance is, of course, the veil with bright floral in the bride’s hair which showcase the stylish purple jacket sported by the groom. Brightly coloured flowers and decor provide an eye catching scape in the green forest. We especially love the purple shoes!
Special details include the custom made rings, the dahlias down the swing ropes, the out of this world detail on the paper suite and the unusually beautiful linens. Even the food is styled through use of colour and made for a delicious yet coordinated look!
This shoot was painted with light and shadows, luxurious textures, jewel tones and Gold accents to compliment the golden fall sun. We appreciate the sun also lighting up the beauty of this Spanish porcelain doll bride. The intriguing alchemy creates opulent imaginary through an abundance of rich patterns and sultry elegant glamour.
