If you are looking for inspiration on how to make your day unique and true to your personality, you don’t have to think over the top. This shoot shows you how the use of pretty (but different from the norm) shades, blended with traditional white, can be very impactful. Add in varying hues of a shade in your florals (like the darker, blue-green leaves used here) and invitations. Take those unique shades and pair them with unexpected shapes: a trailing bouquet, a petite bouquet, the tiniest of buds. You can see here how your eye directly to these unexpected touches. Even the dresses give you hints on how to make things just a little different. In the white dress you have billowy sleeves you would normally not find in a wedding dress; or go a little bolder and wear a floral design. Both choices would be stunning in a garden wedding. Of course, you can’t miss the earrings! Your table will anchor the theme, with organic touches that continue the nod to the fun you had creating a day that says “this is me”.
BUY YOUR DRESS ON ONCE WED
Having been in the wedding world for over eleven years, we have seen many changes. The one we are loving the most is that there is no longer a “right way” to create a wedding. Planning a wedding has evolved to the point that the only limitations are those set by you and your planner/designer! So pick one thing that means the most to you and center your planning around that. It is always a great starting point. This wonderful shoot is one that was the result of a masterclass held in Taiwan that focused on the beauty of a modern Asian aesthetic. With two different couples (and looks) you are able to see how minor changes in a dress, a location, or a table can result in a different look. Enjoy!
From the photographer:
Asia Masterclass 2018 was hosted in Taiwan, a country located off the coast of China. The class focused on creating a monochromatic, minimalistic design with a dash of wabi sabi element (from Once Wed – We admit we had to look this term up, and we just love the definition: The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of beauty that is “imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete”). We wanted to showcase a unique take on the weddings in Asia and inspire our workshop attendees with a new approach to fine art weddings in Asia.

From the photographer:
Morocco was one of the most tropical destinations we visited! We arrived a couple of days before the wedding and took a whole day to photograph these two beautiful and fun people.
Our style of work is a mixture of documentary and artistic approach where we focus on authentic moments and emotions between two people in love. We let the couple guide us through the medinas of the city as we took photos of their little moments that proved to us their love for each other. Heather & Matt are charismatic people and we captured genuine moments and reactions between them as we told them our stories and jokes.
Wardrobe is very important in photo sessions, especially engagements! Heather & Matt decided to wear red and white, a minimalistic choice, which complemented the charm of the colourful medinas and contrasted the beach and clear blue sky!
Since the city is really windy, they decided to take us on the sandy beach of Essaouira which was filled with windsurfers, kite-boarders and camels!
The whole photo session was casual like a relaxing day on the beach and spontaneous which is what made Heather and Matt completely relaxed on their wedding day and ready for another photo session!
