Nerida’s Choice - Coastal Bride and Groom Inspiration
Today's bridal inspiration beauty has some of our favorite wedding industry artists and some design elements that make our little Sparrow hearts beat. Film photographers Taylor & Porter, along with the rest of the amazing team, dreamed up an effortlessly beautiful coastal editorial inspired by the love story of Nerida. We are always so impressed with Forage & Fleur's organic and nature-driven floral designs and this little bit is no different! From the accessories that mimic the look of seaweed by Sibo Designs to the always uber romantic Super 8 film by Before Your Eyes ... we're in wedding inspiration overload!
From film photographers Taylor & Porter: "We wanted this shoot to be:A celebration of the rugged and beautiful landscape of Sonoma, California.A showcase of what makes that place unique; it’s colours, textures and feeling.A suggestion of the love story between Nerida, a Sea Goddess bride who has chosen the land to be with her hearts desire; her groom.We saw the rugged landscape and the gentle ocean as symbolic of masculine and feminine elements coming together and meeting on the shore. We tried to show the strength and beauty of these elements separately and in union.Our aim was to create a shoot that is powerful, inspirational and moving using film photography and super 8 videography to tell this love story. We styled with touches of suggestions at the ocean.. A hair accessory in the gentle shape of seaweed... Soft tousled mermaid inspired hair... We wanted her to feel ethereal and a literal embodiment of the beauty of the ocean."
