Vibrantly Rich Forest Bridal Editorial Playing With Light Dark

Vibrantly Rich Forest Bridal Editorial Playing With Light Dark

This forest inspired editorial began with the invitation suite of bold black papers and hand-painted gold and copper tones by hand-painted stationer Crimson Letters from England.

It was inspired by the theme of Marie Antoinette with a modern twist paired with a bold landscape of golden and orange leaves in the mountain valley of Green Canyon, Utah.

The Inspiration

Moody Marie Antoinette themes were used by Crimson Letters to create deep, dramatic hand painted stationery with an emphasis on a regal feel. Pairing this drama with the rich various forest colours are a great play with colours and offers quite a unique twist for some beautiful bridal inspiration.

The result is an awe-striking beauty of nature complemented by the elegance of a styled sweetheart table in regal style. In addition to the British beginnings, our vendor cast hailed from around the United States representing Florida, Texas, and Utah.

The models are a real couple, and the chemistry and energy between them was so genuine! The air was brisk to the point where we could almost see our breath, which
provided even more atmosphere!

The Shoot

With a focus on enchanting deep jewel-colours of reds, rich oranges, purples and pops of berries and lush greens, delicious cakes and floral arrangements that stood tall, all these elements played an important role in creating the setting for this impactful shoot. The focus was on providing ideas and inspiration for infusing rich colours and radiant hues into your wedding day.

The styling was beautifully colourful, without being too much. The bride wore a pure white gown with the bust line decorated with stones, with a charming headpiece from Eden Luxe Bridal. Her bouquet, reflected the colour scheme, marrying up with her bold red lip colour.

The Stationery

The table setting is where the colour scheme really shone through. The tables were lavishly laid out with gleaming golden sleek candles holders, with red tall candles to lead the eyes up to the high reaching, orange, red and coral roses finished off with areas of berries, which was accentuated by the gold edges dinnerware and horse ornaments and dots of fruit.

Crimson Letters moody scripted stationery played an important role. Standing resolutely against the candles, in amongst the beautiful gold ornaments, the hand painted black and gold table numbers simply shout for attention.

In addition, Crimson Letters created the invites, using a special antique gold, with highlights of pale pink, copper and white. The stationery was created to have a romantic feel, yet look fresh and dramatic, marrying with the colour scheme perfectly to create some powerful wedding inspiration for the ultimate black tie forest affair.

Wow. The moody hues against the bright autumn light and colours in this bridal editorial is a wonderful wedding combination.
