Last year, Pantone named Grayed Jade one of the leaders in fashion trends and I for one am not over it and this wedding inspiration from Michelle Pierre-Carr is exactly why. Captured by Eddie Judd, it’s everything sweet, elegant, and beautiful – and not to mention that spread from Cakes by Krishanthi. Or the Freya Rose shoes. Or the gaggle of cutie pie kiddos. Really, it’s all amazing, and it’s all right here!
From the designer… Using Pantone’s 2013 colour Grayed Jade (a subtle, hushed green with a gray undertone) we set about creating our ‘Sophisticated Garden’ photo shoot.
Gone are the rustic elements of a garden setting and in comes sophistication, opulence and romance. With crystal candle chandeliers, gold silverware, monograms and natural opulent flowers of Peonies and David Austin roses we combine romance and elegance with the natural outdoors.
And with Succulents as our main themed flower for the reception and bridal party we pay homage to a growing plant trend and the setting we are in whilst adding texture and interest to our floral arrangement.
With children also as our focus on this shoot we take a look at what the bridal party get up to by telling the story of their adventure from coming down the aisle, to them discovering the dessert table with all the treats of Grayed Jade (mint green) to the fun and games they have near the lake and on the long grass, adding the fun element to the sophistication.
