Happy Friday lovelies! I have some super sunny, summery inspiration to share with you today, an African take on sunshine yellow with (eep!) a dip-dyed Didi Couture gown. Wow. I adore everything about the styling of this shoot by Simone of Yellow Papaya – the use of geometrical and ombre elements, the relaxed farmyard vibe and the inclusion of shweshwe (which we KNOW I love!). It all makes for a wedding design that is familiar but unusual, and pretty without being overpoweringly girly. In short, super inspiring! Thanks to the awesome team behind this shoot for sharing it with us today, including fab photographer Yolande Snyders and video by The Wedding Revelation.
Simone sent over some background info on the shoot:
Want to have a wedding in your back garden or an orchard? Well you can. We pulled inspiration from geometric elements and of course our feature colour yellow. We also used a second hand wedding dress and dip-dyed it to give it a new lease on life. All our ingredients came from the local area and local producers. You do not necessarily have to have a full plated meal either. Think family style and have platters passing through the crowd throughout the evening with charcuterie, fresh salads and freshly baked breads.
