Bright Delight styled shoot with Flowers by Julia Rose Featured Image

 It’s the little details that are vital. Little things make big this happen   ~ John Wooden ~


On this bright delight styled session, I had the privilege to do a collaborated photoshoot with some very talented wedding industry professionals last year. I had so much fun doing this session watching these incredible artist create their masterpieces. Its one of the things I love about photography, being able to observe and then capture a moment in time. Its so good to see first hand the amount of time and effort that goes in to creating these wedding inspiration set ups.

Styled sessions are a great way for vendors in the wedding industry to show off their skill and creativity to show couples what is possible, to help inspire and push the boundaries of the conventional wedding styling set ups.

{Shoot the groom} The inspiration for this shoot came while shopping in the hardware store. I loved the idea of combining the harsh edges of square tiles with the beauty and softness of Julia’s floral displays. I went with a black and white palette so that all of the bright details on the table would show their natural beauty through the contrast between soft and harsh lines. The light and dark backgrounds expose the depth of colour that can be seen on your table, and the vintage silver cutlery and cut vases inside the cloches were to add a softer more rustic feel to the wooden mint table which I fell completely in love with.

{Sugar Mobile Makeup & Hair} – My name is Terri OBrien and I am the owner of a small boutique business Sugar Mobile Makeup & Hair I started Sugar over 2 years ago and fell in love with the Bridal aspect of makeup. With over 100 wedding bookings in my first 18months I truly found my niche Along the way I have also had my work published in magazines and online I love my job and consider myself to be extremely fortunate to be working in this industry. 

For the Bright Delight styled session I wanted the makeup to reflect the brightness and colours of the gorgeous surrounds while also embracing the brides femininity, a smokey eye and pink glossy lips were the focus while the hair was minimal to let the headpiece be the focal point Jessica’s beautiful face bought it all together.
