When you say the word “Summer” there is one thing that comes to mind – sunshine. For this seasonal trend ‘Desert Sands’ we have taken the idea of a hot Summers day and transformed it into a modern and unique wedding style to inspire you for your wedding. If you had to choose a colour that shouts Summer the loudest, there is no doubt its mustard. That’s why our latest photoshoot features a beautiful mustard colour, combing a number of carefully chosen elements from Australia’s best vendors, coming together to create something beautiful to inspire you for your wedding.
The style of this shoot captures the essence of the Summer climate; dry, arid and full of light. But it wouldn’t be a wedding photoshoot if we didn’t add in some beautiful features like colour-bursting native floral designs and delicately detailed dresses to balance the rawness of the Summer concept. The contrast of the raw and dry setting with the colourful florals, glowing, golden make up and intricate dresses cause this style to shout inspiration.
The look of this Summer shoot is characterised largely by it’s bamboo furniture, bold florals and pops of colour. The wooden motif runs throughout the entirety of the styling from the rattan furniture, pine triangle arbour and peacock chairs. The look brings together an Australian desert an African Safari, brining a style that is both unique and modern. The use of natural tones in the furniture and bar brings the more colourful elements into focus such as the mustard table runner, stationery, cake, floral headpiece and smaller elements such as the name places and table settings. The rose gold theme is echoed throughout the decor and is seen in the lettering, paper stationery, cutlery and candle holders. Soft decor elements such as the mustard cushions, rugs and table runner bring a soft edge to the look, creating a style that shouts Summer romance.
Inspired by the desert, this shoot reflects the heat and sunshine of a Summers day. From the colour palette to the choice of furniture and the arid, dry setting, the overall vibe of this style portrays a day in the desert. The vibe is raw yet relaxed, modern yet elegant and bold yet not overstated. The overall vibe of this shoot challenges the traditional norms of wedding styling, bringing a strong point of difference and bold statement of unique styling.
The palette features mustard as its focal colour while white, burgundy and dark green tones serve as complementary colours in the colour palette. The palette is brought together with textures of natural wood/bamboo and a rose gold metal colour adding to the raw and bright Summer theme.
This style is for the modern bride who isn’t afraid of being untraditional in her wedding styling. It is versatile and applicable to a variety of settings such as a Summer wedding, modern or boho style and an outdoor location. The possibilities are endless with this style as it’s natural elegance and simplicity stands alone without needing a particular backdrop or venue to bring it together. No matter the venue or space you use, this concept will bring a modern, untraditional and bold style to your wedding day.
