I don't know what it is about these colours that prompts such delirium in me, but the teal and gold palette accented by pale blues and soft whites in this styled shoot for the LENS workshop, photographed by attendee Cari Zhu, just makes me want to plan my wedding all over again! Or at least an elaborate outdoor dinner party. I think what really grabs my attention is that there is a blend of soft pastels and jewel tones that evokes a sense of the sea under the glimmer of a setting sun in a pale blue sky. While much attention to detail has obviously been put forth, there is a feeling that the outside has been brought indoors in a way that comes across as effortless and unforced. From the watercolour place cards to the greenery trimmed mantle to the vibrant teal settee, and even the bride's sweeping gown, every aspect of this look is made for a couple who longs for an elegant ocean-inspired affair without leaning on stereotypical tropes. And if you like this, definitely make sure you check out Part I of the LENS workshop, (featuring a truly heirloom feel) photographed by the workshop host, Artiese Studios.
