Happy Halloween, folks! Every year round this time, I see a ton of Halloween inspiration, and it always makes me smile, because let’s be honest, the couples who are going to have a Halloween-themed wedding are few and far between (even if it would be fun, right?). But that doesn’t mean that you can’t create something elegantly eerie – something just a little bit creepy, kooky, mysterious, spooky (just not altogether ookie, Addams family style!). And that’s what today’s shoot is – just a little bit dark, but super pretty as well. In fact, with soft blooms mixed with just the right amount of contrasting black, it’s the perfect inspiration – no matter what time of year you’re getting married. Carla of Mooi Photography and her team (including SBB florist faves Bright and Beautiful!) created this sweetly spooky shoot, and I’m super excited to share it with you this Hallow’s Eve!
From the team:
For this shoot, we wanted to create something mysterious and almost eerie. Something different, with lots of mysterious nooks and crannies to create some soft and beautiful images. For the palette, we used soft lush pinks, powder blue, touches of gold and a tinge of black to break the softness, yet keep the balance. Nooitgedacht was the perfect venue for this styled session and the weather played along perfectly!
