Beautiful colour turns me on.  It stimulates my senses and makes my heart spin on it's side. Colour is an important aspect to most couples planning a wedding too – it can be one of the first definining styling factors they consider.  Let's be honest, for most folk, much of dthe planning can't really take place until key colours are chosen, so today we're keen to explore colour a little, and offer those of you who are drawn in by the summery shades of gold, pink and coral something to be inspired by.

This gorgeous collection of inspirational images predominantly explores the colour gold and how it can be used to style aspects of your wedding day or special event.  It was sent in by Adene Nieuwoudt of South African based Adene Photography. I love all the detail! The pretty table decor suggestions, the beautiful florals, the wonderful tiered dress – imagine being bare-foot and wearing that at your summer festival style wedding.  But ultimately I love the authenticity of these images. Having a real life married couple (Paulette and AJ) sets this apart from your typical inspirational shoot. These images ooze love, laughter and lots of gorgeous ideas to stimulate your own colour-loving heart.  They have been created to inspire you – so go ahead my friends, enjoy, pinch some ideas and pin away to your hearts content…

I just adore how real life married couple Paulette and AJ are around each other in this little film. 

Photographer Adene told me 'Stylist Anli Wahl and I had so much fun pulling off
our first styled shoot last year,
that we decided to make it an annual institution. We actually gave away
our first shoot as part of a Facebook competition we ran.  Because it
was such a huge and fun success, we decided to brand the shoots as 'The Secret Shoot'.
Basically,
we pick a winner, but the winner won't know what they've let themselves
in for until they arrive on set on the actual day of the shoot – where
we reveal everything to them.'

'The aim
of the shoot is to showcase young, fresh and upcoming talent in the South African wedding industry but to inspire brides all over the globe too. We want to create a ‘magical
little world’ that one lucky couple can escape to for a whole day! It's such a great way of showcasing the talent of a group of brilliant suppliers – an opportunity to show off their best work, totally uninhibited!'

'Do not be afraid of change (or
bold colours)! Buy a bottle of
spray paint/paint and re-color old vases, candlesticks and other décor you
never use anymore or have grown bored of. You’ll be amazed at how something
simple like that can kick start your creative juices again! Oh, and don’t be
afraid to experiment uninhibited.'

The creative team behind this shoot wanted to portray different
facets of the colour gold, that focused mainly on minimalist, fun and
opulent.  I think they did this beautifully be creating three different
scenes on a farm and pine forest.  The scene in the barn the couple
hugging is simple yet romantic – I adore how the photographer has
captured the light on the back wall. 

The  scenes in the forrest explore
a more laid back and vivacious style, moving in to something more
decadent in nature as scenes of champagne and a beautifully dressed
table are revealed.
This is a wonderfully excecuted inspiration
shoot and I love how it is packed full of ideas that our readers could
re-create on their wedding day.

    Here is what photographer Adene says about working with these kind of colours on your wedding day; 'don't be afraid of change (or
    bold colours!).  Buy a bottle of
    spray-paint or regular paint and re-color old vases, candlesticks and other décor you
    never use anymore or have grown bored of. You’ll be amazed at how something
    simple like that can kick start your creative juices again! Oh, and don’t be
    afraid to experiment uninhibited!  There are no boundaries, no rules, just go for it!'

    Will you be using golds, pinks or even coral colours to style your wedding day? We'd love to hear from you if so.

    1. Yey, yey, yey! I wore gold on my wedding day! Was initially very apprehensive about it but so glad I did – was a beautiful tone to warm up a winter wedding and felt very glamorous! And recommend any brides thinking about it to go for it!

    2. Thank you all for your sweet and lovely comments about this feature. That some of you think it’s an actual wedding is testament I believe to the skill of the team behind creating these images! They are WONDERFUL! I love them so much – so very inspirational. I just adore gold and metallics – when it comes to renewing my vows, there will be gold and metallics everywhere ;)
      xXx

    3. Ohhhh lovely photo shoot!
      Can you tell me where the gold head band/piece is from in the first few pictures? Just love it – where could I get one that was more pearl like?
      :-)
