Today’s styled shoot from Laura Kelly Photography relies solely on white and green in order to create a minimalist, European-inspired wedding scene. With Toast Events taking care of the styling, Makin’ It Lovely tackling the decor, and Floralia in charge of the sweet floral designs, there’s no way this shoot was going to be anything less than perfection.
From the photographer, Laura Kelly Photography: Elise from Toast Events and I have dreamed of creating images that are European inspired and very minimalist, where each and every detail has been planned to perfection. In addition to creating a shoot that is simple yet ethereal, we have also created a custom olive oil wedding favour DIY element with a free customizable printable by LaFabere, Ottawa’s premier paper designer, that we would love to share with readers. This shoot features something else very unique: live painting during the ceremony and reception. My absolute favourite element in the entire shoot is how Christine’s live painting reflects the hand-drawn background of the invitation suite. For her, it was all about creating something that was inspired but also cohesive, so that the paper goods AND the live canvas creation flowed together.
From LaFabère: To achieve this look, I simply placed the bottle in the centre of the sheet. Then carefully wrap the paper around the object, making sure that it overlaps at the back. You may need to trim or fold the extra length of paper if it’s too long for your object. Next, use transparent tape to secure the sheet. Once that’s in place, fold the paper around the neck of the bottle in the same direction, creating a clean look. Then wrap some string (I used upholstery thread) to add an elegant finishing touch to the bottle.
