This unexpectedly gorgeous and unique wedding inspiration from Karly Ford Photo was shot in a storage facility amidst towers of shipping containers. The dramatic, minimal backdrop of rust and concrete contracted against a dark palette of black, silver and winter reds made the intricate details really pop. The bride’s ostrich feather vest worn over a beautifully embroidered Maison Bridal gown and glamorous updo looked fabulous with her wintery bouquet of deep burgundies, winey reds and moody purples by Cory Christopher Design. The Art of Cake created the fabulously artistic cake decorated with berries and shards of frosting. We love how the bridal look, florals and cake are as uniquely beautiful as this venue!
From the Event Designer, Elyse Colman: The inspiration for this shoot came from the idea of pairing contrasts; the contract between the bridal beauty and the rugged industrial. We filtered this concept through each aspect of the shoot: the simple bridal gown vs. the fur shawl and fauxhawk, the floral print tablescape vs. the industrial backdrop, etc. We love the way the romantic, beautiful couple looks against the industrial sea can storage facility. It was a unique interpretation of the increasingly popular industrial wedding style. We were excited to showcase some unique aspects such as a non-diamond engagement ring (it’s morganite!), a blue suit, and coloured glassware, and the fur shawl.
