Time for some beautiful inspiration! I’m currently loving the whole fine art look, and today’s styled shoot from SBB faves Kate Bell for Bells & Whistles Event Styling and Stella Uys, as well as a talented back up team of vendors, is a beautiful marriage of that dreamy fine art wedding aesthetic and autumn styling. It has that gorgeous sort of glow too- like early evening, or late summer sunlight, or as Kate so poetically titled it: “the first leaves of fall”. From the triumph of a cake to the beautiful table to the on-trend dry flower bouquet and bridal separates, this is perfect inspiration for an elegant and romantic autumn soiree! All the swoons happening here right now.
It’s a new month (and a new season) and I’m super excited about this month’s editorial theme. In September we’re focusing on fine art weddings – not just in terms of photography, but the fine art style that has emerged as a decor trend in and of itself. Not sure what I mean? Well, you’re about to, since today’s whimsical romance styled shoot is a perfect example! (Been DYING to share this one with you!) Think: soft fabrics, beautifully curated details, juxtapositions in texture, and artisan florals. The combination is breathtaking, and for this gorgeous editorial there’s even a touch of real fine art, since the fabric backdrops used throughout are prints of original artworks by renowned artist Louise Janse Van Vuuren. With a pastel palette and an Old European feel that Marie Antoinette herself would approve of, it’s simply the best way to bring in a new season, thanks to the talented team led by Forever September Photography, Anella Wedding Shoes and The Event Planners!
