Wedding Inspiration: Caribbean Beach Alternative photoshoot
As so many people think of the beach whenever they think of a destination wedding, I couldn’t do a photo shoot without including it. However I wanted to show that a beach wedding doesn’t have to be a casual affair, and with the photo shoot in question kindly featured on Bride and Chic here I felt it was a good time to share some more images with you.
Inspired by Vera Wang’s blush pink wedding dresses that were part of the trends for 2012. I chose to go completely couture with a beautiful duschesse silk organza dress with ruching by designer Britta Kjerkegaard from the Couture Gallery and the groom in a navy tuxedo instead of the ususal black by Room ten, to compliment the surroundings.
Using flowers not associated with the tropics white roses and hydrangeas I wanted to show that even with a destination wedding you don’t have to settle for local or plastic flowers if that’s not what you want.
With colours of blush pink, blue and cream the stationery incorporated the blue in a nautical way. Whilst the straw palm fans were one of many details added to highlight the beach favours that are possible.
Finally with the formality of the attire I still made sure that our couple enjoyed the benefits a beach wedding would bring by introducing the hammock and enabling them to go bare foot to enjoy the beach.
My thanks to the following suppliers who spared their time to help with this shoot.
