Iridescent Celestial and Geometric Styled Wedding – Ladysmith, British Columbia
As every wedding falls under its own astrological sign and moon, this styled shoot team decided to showcase three main elements: iridescent tones, the cosmos, and geometrics that tie to this.
A true full moon set the stage, while iridescent tones provided modern sparkle – inspired by upcoming trends. They chose the ocean setting to highlight the marriage of moon and water elements, and the geometrics mimicked the natural zodiac signs found among the constellations. This venue was chosen primarily for its unique range of offerings including the handmade saltwater pool, natural white sand beaches, and the cratered rocky points at the water’s edge.
The impact of the monumental opal inspired full moon with its gold geometric pattern set the intimate ceremony site at the water’s edge, while the iridescent table overlay brought an effective playful element to the sedate beach setting, and the orrery planet centerpiece added a whimsical element.
Astrological drink glasses were customised to the couples personal zodiac signs, and an overhead tree provided framing and atmosphere, and opportunity for hanging the bride’s copper moon bouquet.
The shape-shifting colour of the tablecloth presented a range of shimmering blues and purples, and the prismatic cutlery took center stage beside carefully layered opaline plates. Place settings were tucked among floral adorned gold geometrics and mercury votive accents, with miniature geometric place card holders holding watercolour place names.
An impromptu private moment of a found yellow chair on the beach next to a barnacle-encrusted driftwood post framed the intimate moment.
A giant glass orb with custom cut gold vinyl constellations, held cards for the couple, beneath a lightbox banner glowing with hyper-coloured phases of the moon.
A pearlescent veiled globe with a bold cheeky graphics “You Mean the World To Us” spoke to the non-traditional target couple.
Mini globe favours were stuffed with novel full moon candy bonbons.
The luminous and pearled drinks were a combination of sparkling water and Wilton Lustre Dust colours.
Geometric sugar work with a hand-painted gold edge sat upon an iridescent pedestal. The stand rose above a swirling live floral art-piece designed to echo the cosmos.
The groom’s cream suit was selected to highlight a broader shoulder and relaxed trousers, reminiscent of the 80’s. Because of an informal beach setting, there was an intended lack of tie and a focus on showcasing the box-shaped boutonniere.
For the wedding dress, a modern two piece offered a marriage of classic lace with a full hi-low skirt providing movement and shape, and mimicking waves.
A hanging copper moon vessel displayed the bright bridal bouquet. A hanging geometric garden swayed in the branches next to the saltwater pool. And, the onsite raw slate table provide an unorthodox canvas for the floral art installation
The groom’s ring was an infinite crescent moon pattern, while the bride’s ring set highlighted opal and sea-glass colours in a delicate setting. Prism earing studs and slender gold crescent moon necklace completed the look.
Translucent table runners with gold foil imprinted geometrics allowed the natural wood tables to still be seen underneath the metal and floral décor.
The shimmering suite encompassed the merging themes of celestial, water, and zodiac geometrics.
Exaggerated pin curls created a fluid wave pattern and were ornamented with a raw prismatic quartz crown. Purple, teal and yellow eyeshadows with a matte lilac lip were chosen to create a punchy palette fitting to the avant-garde bride.
Inspirational opaline tea setting with iridescent spoons and candies further cemented the quirky take on classic tea service at a wedding.
