Die Woud – Black & Nude opulence!
Wedding trends 2019 – Styled shoot
The theme for this styled shoot was to showcase the new marriage between black and nude and to add pops of rose-gold for hints of opulence.
Elie Saab as well as Dior, displayed the nude/blush wedding dresses in all their magnificence on a recent catwalk showcasing the trends for 2019.
There is nothing like luxurious fabrics and complimentary colours that lend allure to brides which enhance their natural beauty. We saw this for ourselves when our gorgeous model, Shaldene found her inner goddess while floating in her own femininity in a whirlwind of floating fibres. This dress was the creation of our local talented Cindy Bam!
Every bride deserves to be a princess for a day!
San-Marie from CreativeNook created the very elegant bouquet. She found her inspiration in the Far East with the fan as a base which she sprayed black and built her florals onto the fan. The bouquet was unique but elegant in its fragility. Meghan Markle’s recent wedding bouquet now proving that big and overpowering is no longer necessary.
The wild “Boho” look of the past few years is being replaced with more sophisticated, elegant styles… while foliage will continue to be important, it will be more controlled as an accent to floral.
The overall 2018-2019 trend is of beauty and romance. Currently, blush pinks, champagnes, and ivory dominate with soft, fluffy blooms to create a soft, romantic, feminine look. San-Marie was spot on with her beautiful floral creation.
The trends for hair 2018 – 2019 season are to be blamed on Meghan Markle, the humble tendrils are back and bigger than ever. Two long face-framing pieces, curled away from the face, is all you need to make a basic chignon look oh-so-2019.
Couples are not afraid of colour in 2019 and are adding deep and saturated hues to their wedding palette and complimenting it with warmer metallic tones such as brass or brushed nickel as well as pairing it with greenery and floral elements. It is a sexy and unique way to stand out. Brides are choosing to make a statement with with colours and neutrals.
The perfect way to give your invitations, placement and menus an extra special touch is to use Holographic foil besides the popular gold and rose gold detail.
There are plenty of trends for make-up in 2018 & 2019. Most of the emphasis is on good skincare. Looking after your skin to ensure that it is glowing for your big day is essential. Most brides will have the choice of either natural makeup that shows off the skins gorgeous glow or a glamorous makeup look.
But beware, natural make-up does not mean no make-up. Make-up that enhances your natural beauty is the way to go. In this styled shoot, Helga from HelgaBridal used a deep burgundy shade of lipstick to top off a glamorous style.
One of the biggest trends for 2019 is the use of drones in wedding photography and videography as it is able to add a different and steady perspective of the wedding day. Jo Stokes Photography is excited to welcome Jarred Stokes on board as her drone operator.
Cakes will be moody and modern in design which is inspired by fashion, architecture, and interior design.
We will see sleek black designs, hand-painted art, metallic leaf, chocolate brushstroke, and that minimalist clean line style to cakes everywhere.
But no matter the trends ….trends will come and go so make your wedding uniquely yours and have lots of fun with the planning.
A huge thank you to all the suppliers involved in this styled shoot! Its always fun to collaborate with the industry creatives!
