Autumn is one of my favourite times of the year and this season all I have been thinking about is bold hues and geometric patterns (diamonds in particular). In the past 18 months we have seen an explosion of geometric patterns such as chevron, triangles and the trend is slowly moving towards diamonds. One of my favourite elements when styling a shoot is deciding on the colour palette. My main focus was to create something simple yet dramatic so I chose four bold hues – grey, mustard, royal blue and emerald green. The concept modern meets vintage was born when I decided to use the bold colours, diamond pattern and mix it with vintage props.
The bold colours allow the geometric pattern and lines to shine through for a simple and decadent look and feel.One thing I love about styling is how versatile it can be and for the past 6 months I have enjoyed doing food styling. For this shoot my focus was on the presentation of the food, instead of passing hours creating a dessert table as such. Based on the outcome from my shoot you can see that modern and vintage can be also elegant and inviting. And the best bit about it, you can eat it all after the shoot! (laughs).
One of the most exciting parts of my work is collaborating with other wedding industry creatves for styling the front cover shoot and once again I was blessed to be able to work with Dewi of Sweet Bloom Cakes and Katerina of KatCvet Photography.
