Farmhouse Chic: A Vibrant Wedding Inspiration Shoot at the Gathered

 
 

“A wedding, at its very core, should be a clear representation of the couple themselves, their style, and their love for one another. So my vision for this shoot was to modernize the typical “farmyard/garden wedding” with bold colour, fabulous florals, and more contemporary styling. And with the light and airy film style of Justin Milton, the feel is anything but rustic.”

- Rebekah Brontë

Colourful florals, lush gardens, a large balloon installation, and a prosecco cart filled with bubbly! What more could you possibly want to celebrate your love together?!

This dress KILLS us. The gorgeous silhouette, intricate beading, and flutter off-the-shoulder sleeves, put us in wedding-dress-heaven. If you’re a Calgary bride, you can find this Cizzy Bridal Gown at Novia Mia.

Joanna Bisley Designs provided some gorgeous jewelry for this shoot. The blush Swarovski crystals complemented the gown’s beading beautifully.

Bellamore Beauty really knows how to glam up a bride. We chose a spiral braid updo with vivid peach eyes; our version of a modern bride (we’ll definitely be seeing more bold makeup trends for brides in 2020).

Bold Bouquets? YES PLEASE.

Rhonda from Creative Edge Flowers is all over the colourful floral trend, and couldn’t be more into it ourselves.

in the gardens

Reminiscent of some french fine art styling we had seen as of late, we decided to go with a simple sweetheart table, featuring bold colour, and pinned flowers adorning the soft pink draped fabric.

Are you seeing this floral chiffon table cloth (with literal flowers all down it!)?

We can’t get enough of this intimate tablescape tucked in the gorgeous summer garden.

The menus were displayed on hand-painted pieces of acrylic, and finished with a modern design from Bexley Design Co.
