Spring has sprung! Okay, not here technically, as we’re heading into autumn (although you’d never know from the pure sunshine outside my window in Durban today) but this time of year it’s always fun to see spring blossoms making their way onto the pages of my Northern Hemisphere blogger friends. So we’re taking a trip into the orchards full of blossoms here too, and filling our lungs with fresh spring air, as we enjoy this beautiful bridal shoot from Sulet Fourie and her team. One of the things I love about this editorial is the soft touches of purple – a great way to incorporate this year’s Colour of the Year, Ultraviolet, in a subtle and super pretty way! Stunning florals, a gorgeous dress, and happy smiles – it’s the perfect way to start the weekend off right.
Here’s some background from the team:
The inspiration behind the shoot was all the beauty around us with the new season of spring arriving. The birds singing, the new green leaves showing and the spring blossoms full in bloom… I wanted to combine the beauty of nature with the beauty of the perfect vintage dress, vintage PINK couch , soft but modern styled flowers and the perfect model with a smile that is contagious and makes you look again and again! The look and key elements for the shoot was modern soft, pastel colours with a vintage twist.
