The concept of this editorial was to explore an "American Prairie" inspired wedding elopement - with an understated, soft, and natural look. We wanted to create visuals centered on the couple, with a strong focus on the intimacy of a small celebration, as contrasted to the expanse of the landscape. Our intention was to modernise that vintage "prairie" look, with high collars, embellished gowns, and floral prints - and add a touch of wildness - in a very authentic way. The colours are organic, muted, and down-to-earth, and we wanted that same ethos to reflect in the eco-friendly, sustainable work of the suppliers on the team. We want to inspire couples to pare things back to what really matters to them, and to style their spaces with intentional and meaningful details. For us, this photoshoot was a celebration of timelessness and of love that breaks all boundaries of time, space, and tradition.
