Joy and colour were the foundation of the design of this queer wedding editorial, dreamt up by planner & wedding coach Carrie-Ann Kloda (The Wedding Coach), photographer Pam Kay, and us! A bright and vibrant floral palette, coupled with more neutral choices in the linens and accessories created contrast and a feeling of fresh modernity. We kept things fun and youthful with iridescent accents, and a mix of textures in the accessories. The table florals were chic, with a mono-botanical look that moved from tone to tone across the tablescape.
We imagined a celebration at home, with a couple that valued all the “traditional” wedding bells and whistles (ceremony, cake, champagne, dinner, dancing), but on an intimate, luxurious scale.
Favouring one big WOW moment of lots of little floral pieces, the Flourish & Knot team created the ceremony installation with a gradient mix of colour, incorporating textural fillers and a bevy of carnations (who says they’re boring?!). This installation was created without floral foam, in 100% reusable mechanics, and all of the textural fillers were dried to repurpose into the next installation, making it a much more sustainable choice! Candles and bookshelves served as the background for this intimate, at-home ceremony. We could see this installation serving as the backdrop for a sweetheart table or photobooth later in the evening.
The editorial was captured in the luminous Luma Lofts, and created with a powerhouse team of female-owned or led, queer-positive businesses. Our models, Charli and Talia, are a real couple and their love and authenticity shone through in every photo.
