Colour popping wedding ideas to brighten up your day, no need thank me though. All credit goes to the brilliant team of wedding suppliers who curated these awesome shots. The idea behind the shoot was to inspire same sex bi-racial couples, complete with an industrial boho feel and rainbow colours.
These ideas really pack a punch, I adore the confetti, bright stationery, fun garlands and that epic flower backdrop. The brides looked so stunning in their flowing bang-on-trend gowns and floral crowns with statement make up looks. Plus the styling and pretty blooms were arranged by Supplier Love WWW fave Fleur De Lace. You’re really going to enjoy these images today folks.
Thanks so much to ELS Photography for sharing these brilliant photographs with us.
“Back in February I was approached by Shoshy who runs Shoshy Cadoodle (and who created the gorgeous stationery for the shoot) as she felt (being in a same sex bi-racial marriage herself) that the industry was very hetrosexual and white and she wanted to create a shoot that would not only raise awareness to this but would also inspire other same sex bi-racial couples.
Shoshy said she “identified with my colourful, quirky style” and told me that my “open attitude and adventurous streak! came across very powerfully” in my work (her words not mine! ha 😉 and so wanted to collaborate with me by putting a shoot together that celebrated a bi-racial, same sex couple.
When seeking out other creatives to collaborate with, we were searching for more than just talent and originality. The other suppliers’ values needed to align with what any LGBT couple would be looking for… to be treated equally, with respect and with total, unquestionable support.
Emma Barnes, maker and designer behind Wild Fawn Jewellery, an ethical London-based brand, was one of the first suppliers to jump on board. Emma, (who also happens to be in a same-sex relationship) said she “was really excited about the project’s core focus on diversity and allowing more people to feel truly represented, rather than left out of things and made to feel that they’re somehow different or less valid.”
La Poesie was another obvious choice for the creative team, making dresses that are all about celebrating the inner confidence and the individuality of the women who wear them.
Injecting even more fun and personality into the shoot, came in the form of Puptart’s sparkly rainbow bag; Fleur DeLace’s meticulous styling; Chic’n’Cheerful’s flower crowns/alter backdrop; Emma Page’s dreamy cake and Kim’s bold, striking make up design.
The shoot was so much fun and The Asylum is such a beautiful venue and the perfect canvas to celebrate diversity, inclusion and above all, love.”
