We have a little bit of glam-spiration coming your way in photo shoot form thank to Ovyian Photography and Sara Baig Designs, and you just might want to sit down for this one. The texture and topknots are enough to make any lady want to add a little sparkle to their day to day, but when you add in jewels and feathers and fabulous details? You simply must surrender to the pretty. And surrender we shall, in the full gallery.
From Ovyian Photography… With so many inspiration to reality shoots being beautifully captured and shared every day, I thought it might be great to share the South Asian side of fashion and design for the Style Me Pretty brides planning an eventful Indian wedding. Or better yet, for brides looking to infuse the Indian culture into their big day. I teamed up with a great group of vendors and together we decided to do a side of India we don’t often see in South Asian Weddings. We took an inspiration board Dreamers Events created envisioning Nepal or North India, and brought it to life. The talented Sara from Sara Baig Designs designed the table landscape to include the concept and feel of a South Asian winter wedding. The bold colours against the stark white instantaneously warms the heart and immediately reminds you of the rich beauty and colours of India. It was just as beautiful as we envisioned it.
The additions of pine cones, red chillies and cinnamon paid homage to the Indian cuisine and we knew this was something simple that brides can do themselves. We knew our focal point had to be the sweets wall which was brought to life with a beautiful adventure quote from Jawaharlal Nehru; it was the essence of the room. Our “sweets wall” included; marshmallows, hot chocolate, caramels, cookies, cupcakes, mini cakes and cake pops. The entire team worked so well together. The stunning fashion pieces from CTC West really took in the colors of the design palette. We had so much fun with it and we really hope to inspire all the winter brides with the feel, tones and details of the shoot. Naz from NazFilms captured the entire shoot on 8mm. The use of the white room helped us explore our options and together we tried to captivate the simple details and beauty of India. Often times we forget that India is a country of many languages, culture and seasons and with this shoot we aspired to capture the north end of it.
