Happy Monday! I am starting my week feeling weirdly more relaxed than usual, thanks to an involuntary internet break (so thanks for cutting my Wifi on Friday, Telkom). And I am also starting it feeling as bright and breezy as can be, thanks to this Spanish-inspired editorial from Uche Photography and their talented team. Colourful blooms, bold bridesmaid dresses, a groom in a red velvet jacket (SO loving velvet everything in weddings right now!). And a bride who looks super classic in contrast, all lace and romance. It’s fabulous, and has the glow of a summer afternoon in the Mediterranean. And oh my, the florals! Which just so happen to include our fave, the protea, along with a host of bright flowers in pinks and yellows and reds. So much colour! So much happiness. Olé!
Here’s a bit of background from the team:
The romance, beauty, and colour of a Spanish wedding was the inspiration behind this styled shoot, using a palette of deep red, bright reds, yellows, and colourful oranges. The look was bright, romantic, and timeless, so a lace drop veil was key, and we also had a custom made red velvet suit in rich burgundy for our groom, which complemented the other beautiful, bright colours.
