Conceptualised by Bryan of Beautiful Gatherings, this shoot was inspired by two areas in his life – his fascination with nature’s offerings and travelling experiences. Having grown up in a humble home built by his grandpa, Bryan spent many mornings running around the house, helping his mum with the gardening and eating lots of home cooked food.
Returning to Asia after a sabbatical in South America, he found himself yearning for all the exotic fruits. When he discovered Bollywood Veggies, a sanctuary away from the bustle of the “Little Red Dot” and set in the rustic environment of the northwest Kranji countryside, it was like stepping into his childhood playground and Singapore’s lush history.
When putting this garden shoot together, Bryan visited a local fruit stall, where the reds of the lychees and blues of the mangosteens became the anchor of his inspiration. For the tabletop, the array of tropical fruits for the guests to enjoy sat alongside a hand-dyed table runner from northern Thailand and stunning flowers in tree bark containers by Floral Magic.
The floral details in this styled shoot were designed to capture the feminine yet wild and free romantic in everyone. The colours of the dahlias, Nigella pods, germini and sedum, mixed with blue thistle and smoke bush, perfectly complemented the table runner and awesomely organic outdoor setting. One can never go wrong with organised elegance in a rustic setting.
This tropical fruits styled wedding shoot took place on a beautiful sunny morning. Brody of Brody Tan Photography was on hand to capture all of the details using film photography! For the stationery, Joanne of Nineteen Design Studio created the invitations suite based on the table runner and the deep and lustrous hues of the tropical fruits, artistically incorporating the theme into the various paper elements.
Love Yu provided a lovely, versatile “Enchanted” dress that could be worn short or long, allowing the “bride” to move around the venue easily and gracefully, while hairstylist Charmaine Tok ensured that she looked absolutely stunning! Model bride and groom were from Upfront Models.
