Claude Monet wedding inspirations
Claude Monet, the epitome of Impressionism, painted nature in expressive, atmospheric moods. His pearly water lilies and a Japanese wooden bridge were always motifs for the famous artist. Bright colors, reflections of the water and light and shadow reflections fascinate the viewer.
Just as Monet saw and painted his lily pond from different perspectives at different times of the day, the team had the idea to create their own individual artistic vision of fine art.
The team tells: “We worked with a dreamy palette of cloud blue, sage green, cream, lavender and gold. Each of these colors ties in with Monet’s artwork, depicting sky, water, lily pads, clouds, flowers and pond reflections.
From the water (represented by the table) to the bridge (elaborate floral installations by Emily Rose Florals ), we tried to replicate impressionism by using multiple textiles, incorporating color in small spaces, and focusing on natural light and its movement throughout the space.
A nod to the old world charm and sophistication that France and its artists are known for, we paired a delicate lace gown with a floor length blush veil by Martina Liana with a graceful headpiece. To give it a modern flair and touch, our graceful model was adorned with a lace bomber jacket and glamorous lily-shaped earrings. ”
Such an incredible variety of inspirations can be found in this detail-oriented shoot, which are now to be discovered in Sarah Porter ‘s unique images.
