Regal and Gilded Wedding Inspiration

January 2, 2024 BY: Bailey

“The world has been a different place since 2019. And sometimes it feels so divided, it is difficult to imagine a path back to one another. For months, I had been thinking about melding worlds. What beauty could we create if we set aside what we perceive as difference and find ways to merge the things that separate us to create new ideas…new beginnings? It was this idea that inspired this styled shoot – melding love. I was intentional about the choice of location. Choosing the Empress was a nod to Victoria’s gilded era, with ornate ceilings and gold embellishments and styling it with elements that were modern – a white and gold vinyl elevated round stage for the ceremony surrounded by white flowers and crisp glass elements for the reception. Forgoing the traditional, handmade, deckled stationary style for a more cutting edge style while honouring tradition through the illustration of the Empress, a sprinkling of gold leaf and wax stamps. The cake was a simple futuristic style with a classical nod through a stylistic gold leafed edge. Our multi-racial models told a story of their own, a love that transcends social categorizations and finds newness in itself. At once, a celebration of the possibilities and a testament to how far we have come in the accomplishment of our shared humanities. These seemingly different elements worked well together to create a beautiful work of art that is a bit of both worlds – a perfect melding tied together by the choice of an all white palette with hints of gold which is both uniquely modern and perfectly traditional”
