We have all seen a fair share of traditional white weddings, featuring neutral floral arrangements
and soft tones. This most recent wedding editorial I organised threw the wedding rule book
out the window and opted for bold, vivid tones. It was actually inspired by the iconic American artist Tony Duquette. His Dawnridge House is a space which blends colour, prints and eccentricity,
so it was the ideal wedding scene inspiration and the perfect contrast to the detailed Ricca Sposa wedding dress by Laha.
Being a Qatar female wedding photographer who’s been lucky enough to travel across Europe,
Asia and the Middle East to capture many couple’s relationship milestone, I am always thrilled
to create something different.
Shot in the capital of Qatar, Doha, this setting was done by Plush events and it just screamed opulence through the use of intricate and colourful wallpapers. Furnishings added an extra ‘oomph’ with incorporating unique shapes, rich textures and vibrant tones. This maximalist style of wedding décor
is bound to make your guests’ speechless. It a perfect concept for those larger-than-life couples
who admire and cherish maximalism.
A wedding like no other, this type of a design will make the bride stand out as a traditional dress truly contrasts against the colour. If you’re looking for ways to incorporate colour into the main ceremony,
a great option is to add on of a colourful bouquet. Nature has offered us so many bold
and beautiful flowers that it would be such a shame not to use them.
You can also keep this theme flowing through your table arrangements.
Uniqueness is in abundance in this wedding editorial I photographed! Even the table décor has its own life of colour. Gold trimmed plates intensifies the luxurious feeling alongside the patterned glassware. A small area where pattern on pattern on pattern thrives, it would scare off the average couple. But those willing to push the boat out will be smug when they see the finished result.
As a wedding photographer, I have never seen such an extravagant wedding concept which features
a plethora of colour, prints and textures. I hope I will be capturing future weddings that have been inspired by this work.
