Undulating Blues Styled Shoot

by Nov 4, 20190 comments

The romantic dusty pink palettes for weddings have been in fashion for a long while – we think it is time for a fresher, yet still romantic and elegant palette: dusty blues…

The initial inspiration behind this colour palette was just one single flower that captured our imagination: The new Blue Peony, which is just unbelievably gorgeous, and the tones and hues of blue are just exquisite…

…The understated beauty of the main colour reminds one of blue skies, cool waters, light & airy fabrics on the skin and warm evening summer breezes. The blues in this shoot are carried by tones of white, greens, and greys with touches of Pink and Gold. The Dusty Blue is understated, yet very present. It climbs and falls, moves and dances, – the effect being created through interesting textures, fabrics, juxtaposing colour and playing with light and shadow.

With blues not being as abundant in the flower world as pinks (and the blue peonies, as breathtaking as they are: don’t come cheap), we had to get creative: Don’t you love the Proteas that look like they were kissed by the wind (Idea by Oopsie Daisy to spray paint the Proteas)?
We just loved this colour palette and theme, as it is so many different things at once: It is romantic, yet fresh. It is elegant yet edgy. It is out of the ordinary in terms of trends, yet it feels so familiar… It is time to let the dusty blues come out to play.
