The concept is about dualism and how the opposite forces of masculinity and femininity may actually be complementary and interdependent, and how they are chasing after each other as they seek a new balance with one another.
There’s something about mixing and matching masculine and feminine forms and aesthetics like two halves of Yin and Yang that together complete wholeness.
It also feels empowering to create looks that reflect how a modern woman feels inside without having limitations. For the bride’s look, we wanted our bride to exude individuality and feel confident, polished, and elegant without feeling stripped down by the simplicity.
Our editorial shoot was created with minimalism in mind. The concept is something we’ve seen before, but this is our take on the aesthetic. Our idea was not to remove details, which is often associated with the style, but to create a clean look that would showcase them. We wanted to create impact without cluttering the space with decor and took advantage of the venue’s minimalistic structure to draw focus to some of our key design elements. From the simple table setting, floral, to the cake, the team aimed to reflect sleekness and modern touches throughout. The minimalistic approach points the attention to where we want it, and where you’d find unexpected and personalized twists.
