A Rustic Luxe Wedding Inspiration Shoot With Turquoise & Copper
A contrast of fresh pastels with a warmth of coppers and deep burgundy were used to create this unique boho vibe wedding shoot.
Styled with lots of texture and natural materials, turquoise was the key colour of the inspiration, working well with a variety of chosen flowers – but also the copper, which when wet, changes its appearance over time to a rustic turquoise green – a true natural partnership.
The model’s hair was kept simple and loose, with hair flowers added to a selection of images. Th makeup was also kept natural, with hints of coppers – and a deep burgundy lip introduced for the final few frames.
The dresses were provided by The Aisle. One dress was worn with and without its matching cape (‘Ella; by Temple by Bo and Luca), and the cold shoulder wedding dress was ‘Salamanca’ by Soon Bride.
Foliage including eucalyptus was used to pick up the tones in the denim jacket, denim boots and the stationery and the asparagus fern simulated the lace detail of the dress and blanket.
Mixed spring flowers were used throughout the floral arrangements – along with cream tulips, white prunus and white syringa, white ranunculus, paperwhites, blue oxypetalum, green viburnum, blue delphiniums and the stems of a birch tree.
Apricot matthiola, peach roses, deep park helleborus and the dark burgundy astrantia added warmth and a contrast to the blue/green hues – and enhanced the turquoise vases and chiffon on the table and archway.
Copper jugs, kettles, milk churns were also introduced with shimmered copper/pinky table runners and placemats, dark green and blue glassware (candlesticks, candleholders and drinks glasses) added depth when arranged throughout the turquoise chiffon.
The wooden bowls and plain linen napkins also brought in a relaxed, rustic feel – adorned with simple stems of grape hyacinths – the record player and lamp added a vintage twist.
