A lovely dose of pretty pink wedding inspiration for you today 💘We’re talking about pink floral clouds of gypsophila and roses, romantic candlelit tablescapes, modern wedding style, stylish hair bows, charcuterie boards, and pops of neon pink!
Over to Eunice from Chuunice Photography to tell us more…
What was the idea behind the shoot?
Classical architecture meets playful romance, with a dash of rebellion, we wanted to create an inspiration wedding for the unconventional, edgy and fun-loving couple. This couple wants to have fun, be comfortable, and celebrate in their way.
Where did you get your inspiration from?
I was greatly inspired by the stained glass dome of the Permanent Building. The Permanent building has been an icon in Vancouver for over a century. Home of the Bank of Canada for decades, it has a neo-classical design, boasting a huge stained glass dome ceiling, crown moulding and bronze chandeliers. We thought this traditional space would be the perfect contrast for a modern, edgy, eclectic couple. We wanted to create something different from the otherwise traditional and classic space.
How did you find the suppliers who made this concept come to life?
I reached out to fellow vendors who have an excitement for creativity and something different. They were all on board with creating something unconventional, potentially for a microwedding, where couples can splurge on a small number of guests. We also wanted to think outside of the box on things would not necessarily be associated with traditional weddings, like charcuterie boards to share, and a high-low wedding dress. All of the vendors showed their creative flair in this shoot!
What details/look are your favourite, and why?
I love all aspects of this shoot, however, if I were to choose my favourite, it would be the chaise lounge with the suspended LED hearts. Lounges have become more popular in recent years, however, the chaise is a real show-stopper! It provides a spot for guests to relax and mingle, and features the suspended horizontal floral display repurposed into vertical! This was a big design element from the decor and floral team, and I think they did an amazing job creating such a versatile piece.
Do you have any styling tips for readers looking to emulate this shoot?
I have always been a proponent of “Your Wedding, Your Way“. I think if you like a certain funky design, you should go for it! Ruffles, shorter skirts and colours are all growing trends in wedding dress and veil designs, and I highly suggest readers consider these pieces for their weddings, or as a second outfit. Our florist also spray painted Baby’s Breath to achieve the exact palette of pinks we wanted. In addition, the juxtaposition of a very classic space with an ultramodern or rebellious aesthetic can be a lot of fun! Don’t be afraid to think outside the box!
What is it that makes your shoot unique?
From the high-low ruffle wedding dress and matching ruffle veil, to a giant hair bow, to floating LED lights and floral display, and charcuterie boards and pink bubbly, we wanted to create a rebellious contrast with the traditional, century-old building. The fun-loving, pink pieces juxtaposes the serious, classic architecture. We also feature a lot of painted florals; it’s a fun way to get the exact colour you need, while creating something that’s extremely different!
What’s the most important tip you have for couples planning their wedding?
Your wedding is all about your union and your partner. Don’t be afraid to do what YOU want in your wedding design, and reach out to vendors who have similar aesthetics and values. Tell them your vision but also don’t be afraid to let their own creative side shine!
