Inspire Me: Boho Lavender Fields Styled Shoot
Plush lilac and blush tones, morrocan inspired fabrics and textures all wrapped up a real bohemian whirl make this wedding photoshoot in the lavender fields beyond gorgeous.
Headed up the creative director of Adorn, Katerina Vermes was the chief stylist on the day. She explained to us that initially when planning the shoot, the ideas and colour palette originated from much moodier and darker beginnings. With the original aim being to utilise rich colours of oxblood and plum paired with silvers - think "tattooed gypsy bride with raven hair frollicking in the forest with wolves" - the style transitioned into something much lighter but still retaining that vibrancy and use of colours, textures and bohemian vibes.
Bringing an all the more ethereal look to proceedings, the dark colours were replaced with vibrant lilacs and pastels with the lavender field providing the ultimate backdrop to really ramp up the look. Through this process of ideas transforming, Katerina explains that it's a reminder to brides that change is good and you just need to go with the flow and be open to the idea of things changing and adapting.
The ultimate aim of the shoot was to create something the bridal world haven't seen before, and it's certainly done that. We are all for people trying something new and being bold and brave with their choices. The latest wedding trend and popularity for colour pop weddings is real proof of that and we love how this photoshoot rings in those changes to the industry.
Channeling an eccentric bohemian look with more conventional and romantic touches, the colour palette transformed from the original season choice of Autumn to Spring, where the colours brightened and adapted to the surrounding location. Choosing lilac as the dominant colour, the team then opted to use shades both lighter and darker than this to create depth. Utilising colours of lavender and blush, they also integrated shades of ivory and touches to metallic gold to balance everything out.
The stunning location of Sault in Daylesford surrounded by it's abundant lavender fields provided the perfect opportunity to shoot multiple stories. With the dusty lilac lavender surrounding the venue paired with the building's limestone brick facade, the combination suited the whimsy and romance of their theme beautifully.
With the decadent florals and foliages taking centre stage, they styled the look using amethyst crystals, rose and clear quartz's strewn across the table to emphasis the bohemian and ethereal feel they wished to bring to the look. The modern gold cutlery and simple chinaware help to ground the look and bring structure and modernity to the otherwise wild and busy tables.
When designing the table outside, the aim was to embrace a cool and laid-back high tea feel. With the informal look being influenced by moroccan vibes, they channeled this feel through the layout, textures and patterns. Using a large tribal rug beneath the table, they then layered over this cushions, furs and ottomans with the purple and gold colour palette running through.
The table florals featured a large amount of foliage and succulents to embrace the bohemian look and within this pretty lilac roses, lavander, nigella and astilbe were placed delicately.
