“Two lovely berries moulded on one stem”
-A Styled Shooting by Elisabeth Cardich and Melanie Nedelko-
So we grew together,
Like to a double cherry, seeming parted,
But yet an union in partition;
Two lovely berries moulded on one stem;
So, with two seeming bodies, but one heart.
– Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night ́s Dream
We took inspiration of this magical and surreal text passage, creating contrasts between the rocky and sharp scenery and the softness of the bride, her skin and the fabrics used. There is no union without separateness, there is no joy and love without solitude and partition.
Different grey colored and shaped stones, stones of gold, deep blue juicy water,dark berries that make a shy vow towards nature and soft white, creme dresses are the reminiscence of a fairytale and of a painting where everything falls into the right place.
The color palette we used are dark blackberries, soft greens, off white and creme. Colors repeatedly disclaimed in the flowers, the decoration of the table setting and the furniture from the 18th century.
Thank you to A Very Beloved Wedding for sharing this beautiful wedding inspiration.
