Graceful Bridal Inspirations From The Sunshine Coast
Massive mountains, in front of immobile water, a light sea breeze and a wedding dress dancing in it, secret messages from the depths of the ocean and letters from a bygone era – photographer Samin Abarqoi thrills us with graceful bridal inspirations from the Sunshine Coast.
„A popular wedding destination, the sunshine coast in Canada is known as a stretch of paradise, it has often its rugged and forested beaches with a magical string of mountains at the background.“the artist raves. „I was inspired by this contrast and decided to combine elements and materials, which resemble softness and intensity. The contrasts between the roughness of the foreground with the soft hues on the layered mountain range, which seems immersed in the Pacific Ocean in distance made me, create this styled shoot.“
This exciting play of contrasts is especially evident on the invitingly laid table for two by Floral Artist and event stylist Chelsea of Everly Fleur . The few space is shared by feathery fabrics with precious lead crystal, graceful gold cutlery next to fruity silver bowls and modern black style candles in addition to timeless white plates. A sumptuous bouquet completes the harmonious table setting in style.
The elaborate stationery by Phoebe of Fibii Calligraphy Design also plays with the attributes of romantic lightness as well as powerful calligraphy and thereby adheres to the rules of the photographer.
However, the absolute highlight of the shoot, is the elf-like bride from the sea, in her gorgeous wedding dress by Hannnah Tikkanen. Barely noticeable, the low-cut top clings to her body and plays around her arms with long sleeves. The airy light skirt slides down her legs and ends at her feet in a glamorous train.
Of course, photographer Samin Abarqoi left nothing to chance in this important detail as she tells us:„The bold and beautiful femininity wrapped in a cocoon-like gown or another ornamented tulle gown with a color of beige and blush inspired by the colors of dawn over the sea, paired with wild-looking flower arrangements made this concept accomplished.“
How much love for details she spent on realizing her visions you can see here.
