Marble – one of the biggest trends in the last couple of years, not only in the wedding industry, but also in many other industries including home décor, interior design, fashion, and jewelry. We believe this trend will likely continue due to the simple and modern, yet chic look of the joining of two different coloured swirls to make a beautiful pattern we call marble. This was my inspiration behind this styled shoot. I felt that the joining of two different coloured swirls to make a marble pattern is similar to the joining of two different people to make a family together.
In this shoot, I really wanted to show that less is actually more with a focus on very small details, which is why you will notice that there aren’t very large pieces that will immediately draw your attention to it. Instead, you really need to take time to examine all the small details that are used to put together a very beautiful picture. Each small detail plays its part and was purposefully placed there for a reason.
I decided on the perfect amount of marble to be included on the table to ensure that it was the main feature of the table without overwhelming the viewer’s eyes with the same pattern. To do this, I mixed in different textures to keep the table looking interesting. I added in a grey chiffon table runner to mix in a very soft, flowing texture, yet you can also see swirl-like textures on the table runner, mimicking the marble pattern.
Throughout the shoot, you will see that we had a strong focus on mixing different textures together instead of mixing colours together. We chose a very soft colour palette as we did not want to take any attention away from the marble, so to keep it interesting, we played around with textures vs. colours. May Flower Studio understood this vision, so you will see that the floral arrangements that were created had many different types of shapes and textures. Roses were mixed with different types of greenery and pampas grass to create that look, which is also one of the hottest upcoming trends of 2019.
This same idea of focusing on textures can be seen through the sweets table designed by Cathy from Flour and Flower.
The ceremony backdrop was also created as a floral installation directly on the wall versus traditional arches or chuppahs. On the installation, you can also see that we did not use a lot of colours to draw attention to the textures that were used, mixed with candles to create a softer and more minimalistic look.
Lastly, the two dresses and jewellery and hair pieces provided by Ferre Sposa were all very simple with lots of detail, completed with a soft but glam look by Blushing Belles which perfected the whole styled shoot.
