I have always been inspired by Vancouver’s burgeoning skyline. For this styled shoot in collaboration with Mango Red, a world renowned photography company based in Manila, I drew inspiration from the city’s contemporary industrial vibe to create a modern urban mood board for the overall design.
For decor, we used mirrors raised at different heights as an homage to the architecture present in today’s urban cityscape. Disco balls were also used to reflect the sparkling, dazzling nature of the city. We chose white cymbidium orchids, black baccara, and freedom roses as the main floral pieces; red aspidistra leaves, damask ribbon and midelino sticks as accents.
The papery, cake pops and cupcakes were intricately crafted to incorporate the same elements used in the floral pieces. The jewellery completed the look – a signature Tacori. Together with the gorgeous flowing bridal dress by Lazaro, a classic Cinderella-esque feel blended so well with the already modern scene. Pure luxury, clean, and modern.
