This Styled Shoot was created around the beautiful and unique pairing of Rose Quartz, a soft pastel pink and Serenity, a soft blue. These colours were chosen as the Pantone colours for 2016 and we loved playing with the idea of incorporating this trend with our Styled Shoot.
We were inspired by the bold pairing of these two colours. We wanted to showcase some of the big trends of 2016. Here are a few of the trends that we love:
Makeup :We love the thought of creating a pink bridal look that is soft and on trend with the more natural makeup looks of 2016. The makeup look can be described as “English Rose Glow”, a soft fresh-faced look. Beautiful rosy cheeks, pretty pink lips and lightly lined eyes. With the second makeup look, gold tones were added to the eyes with a classic eyeliner on the lid and inside the waterline making our model’s blue eyes stand out.
Hair: Whimsical Braids, Bohemian Locks and Ballerina-inspired buns are big in 2016. We would opt for Bohemian Locks, very natural softly curled hair or a whimsical braid if you are steering towards a more relaxed and romantic wedding. We do however also love the Ballerina-inspired look for a more modern wedding!
Decor : One of the hottest wedding trends of 2016 is “bringing the outdoors in” making use of lots of greenery for you wedding venue. We created a roof of greenery and added some beautiful modern lighting in rose gold.
Flowers : “Just picked” is the best way to explain one of the flower trends of 2016. Keeping your flower arrangements loose with free-form bouquets and centre pieces which often include a mix of big and small blossoms in more than one colour.
Stationary : Two of this years hottest stationary trends are watercolours and florals. We made use of both of these trends and created stationary in soft pastel colours.
Mens wedding attire : A very casual look, stepping away from the very formal wedding attire traditions. We loved incorporating the pantone colour serenity (blue) when choosing the groom’s trousers and kept it casual with a cream coloured jacket, white shirt and no tie.
