Best at Dusk - Organic Coastal Wedding Ideas

Apr 03, 2015 | Inspiration
There are beautiful pieces of art out there and there are those that you can tell came straight from the heart. Today we're beyond thrilled to feature this gorgeous editorial, styled by Wedding Sparrow's own Sara, captured by one of our favorite film photographers, Taylor & Porter. The location is unbelievable, the florals by The Garden Gate Flower Company are breathtaking and the looks with gowns by Rue De Seine and Cherry Williams London and headpiece by Liberty In Love are simply lovely... and what makes this even more special is how meaningful it is to Taylor & Porter. Anything that LA Happy touches is magic and we LOVE the idea of a special poem handwritten on wedding photos...

“Solid in my foundations,

my strongest lean - post 

silhouetted against the periphery of my horizon,

Your shape stepped against the skies

re-shaped my landscape.

You are always, in all ways, the sea-breeze I need.

We are magpies searching for glinting things

we are best at dusk when the sun is a heavy light.

We weather storms breaking and we spend time tracing

outlines of strange cloud formations.

We are magpies sorrow - joy, girl - boy, silver - gold

and secrets, such secrets that sugar - dust our inky sky

then reflected, in rock pools."

-Sea Breeze by Liberty Smith

 
From Taylor & Porter: "For this inspirational shoot I started with the beautiful lines of a poem by Liberty Smith. I wanted to convey the poem’s equal parts of strength and softness through the choice of location and use of delicate materials and elements. I saw the lines of the poem literally being part of the images and Calligrapher Sally Balt of LA Happy realised this dream by meticulously inking the words directly onto the prints which were later rescanned by Richard Photo Lab. The poem and location are both so treasured in my heart. I first heard this poem at the wedding I met my fiancé and second shooter Teo at and the location is where he proposed to me four years later. To us this is the most special shoot we’ve ever done and I aimed to convey some of the power of the place and the emotion we feel when we go there.”  Taylor & Porter Photography Taylor & Porter Photography Taylor & Porter_Best At Dusk_1 Taylor & Porter Photography taylor_and_porter_1 Taylor & Porter Photography taylor_and_porter2 Taylor & Porter Photography Taylor & Porter_Best At Dusk_4 Taylor & Porter Photography Taylor & Porter_Best At Dusk_7 Taylor & Porter Photography taylor_and_porter3 Taylor & Porter Photography Taylor & Porter_Best At Dusk_10 Taylor & Porter Photography Taylor & Porter_Best At Dusk_11 Taylor & Porter Photography taylor_and_porter4 Taylor & Porter Photography Taylor & Porter_Best At Dusk_14 Taylor & Porter Photography taylor_and_porter5 Taylor & Porter Photography Taylor & Porter_Best At Dusk_17 Taylor & Porter Photography Taylor & Porter_Best At Dusk_18 Taylor & Porter Photography taylor_and_porter6 Taylor & Porter Photography taylor_and_porter7 Taylor & Porter Photography Taylor & Porter_Best At Dusk_23 Taylor & Porter Photography Taylor & Porter_Best At Dusk_24 Taylor & Porter Photography Taylor & Porter_Best At Dusk_25 Taylor & Porter Photography taylor_and_porter8 Taylor & Porter Photography Taylor & Porter_Best At Dusk_28 Taylor & Porter Photography Taylor & Porter_Best At Dusk_29 Taylor & Porter Photography taylor_and_porter9 Taylor & Porter Photography Taylor & Porter_Best At Dusk_32 Taylor & Porter Photograhy taylor_and_porter10 Taylor & Porter Photography taylor_and_porter11 Taylor & Porter Photography Taylor & Porter_Best At Dusk_37 Taylor & Porter Photography taylor_and_porter12 Taylor & Porter Photography taylor_and_porter13 Taylor & Porter Photography Taylor & Porter_Best At Dusk_42 Taylor & Porter Photography Taylor & Porter_Best At Dusk_43 Taylor & Porter Photography Taylor & Porter_Best At Dusk_44 Taylor & Porter Photography Taylor & Porter is a Wedding Sparrow approved vendor and proudly part of the Fine Art Curation.
