MODERN ROYALS JEWEL TONED WEDDING
LAURIER ROOM | FAIRMONT CHATEAU LAURIER
Featuring a glam colour palette in black, white and gold, and all kinds of sparkle, this editorial shoot was all about taking that traditional glam to the next level by pairing classic details with modern elements for an ultra-luxe, over-the-top elegance.
Mixed gold and black steel flatware, paired with dinnerware in polka-dot, flecked gold, and high-gloss black, set atop gold-threaded linens created the perfect ultra-glam place-setting. Meanwhile a lush organic garland runner, floating white flowers, and tall tapered candles helped to blend the lavish details so that the eye could flow seamlessly over the whole tablescape, without becoming overwhelmed at any one point.
To ensure that the bride and groom stood out against the bold details of the design, we opted to keep them in sleek, stark features. The groom in classic black, with delicate white accents, and the bride in a seemingly simple, yet stunningly intricate, modern dress, boasting a sheath silhouette and sequence embroidered lace. An all white bouquet, filled with roses, ranunculus, lisianthus, tulips and delphiniums, with matching boutonnières, added an elegant contrast of texture and depth to the overall aesthetic. The bride’s hair in a soft, curled up-do, was accentuated by a custom-made floral hairpiece, creating a look akin to a modern-day Grecian goddess. Her makeup played into the natural, sun-kissed beauty, while the eyes sparkled and danced in shimmering gold. The look was completed with a stunning cushion halo encircling a masterpiece diamond, with stacked diamond brick eternity bands.
