For this styled bridal photoshoot, we were inspired by two incredible artists: Claude Monet & John Waterhouse. Specifically, our colour scheme was derived from Monet’s Pathway of Flowers with touches of The Artists Garden at Giverny. These depict a stunning array of cool blues, lush greens, vivid purples and pinks. The inspiration for our models came from Waterhouse’s paintings of Ophelia and The Soul of the Rose, of which both feature women with alabaster skin, long dark hair, rosy cheeks and a sensual yet forlorn look about them. The makeup and hair reflects the natural radiance of the models’ and their feathery eye brows blend the faint similarities of the painters.
Although these two artists belong to different artistic styles, we sought to connect these two artists through nature and its prominence in their paintings. Thus, the heart of our styled photoshoot features a stunning circle arch, provided by Past Pieces, covered in beautifully and meticulously placed florals + greenery by Bloomier. Bloomier proudly displays their elegant and organic color palettes and evokes the rich abundance of Dutch still life painting. Past Pieces brought remarkable decor to enhance this styled photoshoot to an even more elegant level. Added pieces of Nigella and Plumosa to the cake elevated the design to cast light on the soft yet somewhat icy blues in many of Monet’s paintings.
