Pink continues to be one of the hottest hues in bridal—and for good reason. Pink and its variations (blush, millennial, etc.) lend a romantic tone to any colour palette, and they work relatively well with almost every colour. But what we particularly love is a classic, romantic pink palette with a few whimsical elements.
That’s exactly what co-creative directors Cindy Li of Wonder Chic Events and Samantha Ong of Samantha Ong Photography were envisioning when they came up with this gorgeous styled shoot. “With the summer upon us, we can’t help but dream of pretty pink blooms and the air of sweet summer romance,” Ong explains. “Shades of pink, hints of gold and touches of white come together harmoniously to create a soft, classic, romantic love story that never goes out of style.”
For the shoot, the Li and Ong wanted florals to take centre stage, keeping in mind elegance and romance—from the bride’s bouquet, to the ombre centrepieces and the vibrant floral arch.
For added whimsy, a few key elements included a hot pink paper peony, a five-tier gold leaf cake and mismatched white-and-gold-plating. “Dressed in a pink-toned ballgown and adorned in simple, yet refined, gems, our bride has us swooning over her soft and graceful look, as she anticipates her happily ever after on this beautiful, sweet summer day,” says Ong.
