Spring Bay Shoot by By The Wilde

A revolution in wedding styling, dear I mention it, a pandemic spice up! A collaborative shoot styled by Dear Leone with photography from By The Wilde. The Bunker shoot showcases underlying grunge and soft elegance, introducing bold personality to styling, and we love it! 

Dear Leone + By The Wilde reject the traditional notion of elegance showcasing how beauty in love can be celebrated in the midsts of the pits (even the wood chipping ones). This styled shoot extracts the floral elements of a traditional wedding and uses wild flowers in segmented arrangements. The flowers scattering romantic escapism throughout the shoot. Wild flowers wandering out of the structural conformation of the linear urban surroundings ushers a futuristic feeling to wedding styling. 

The Bunker, paying homage to the Spring Bay Wood-chipping Mill gives a raw alternative space to host small receptions and celebrations. Natural light glowing through the de-commissioned chip shoot introduces intamacy to the space, easily warmed with candles for a cozy reception or bar area- perfect for the edgy couple straying away from a traditional wedding.

The use of crystal glassware softens the modern stark table setting while feature hues of mustard and soft pinks tie in a feminine feel with the ink and white colour pallet. 

The devore fabric on the ‘FRAHN Bridal Mini’ dress carries a striking textural element through from the ceremony to the raw bunker, making for seamless continuity throughout the day. With bold sleeves and a playful hem length this one is perfect for someone with those unstoppable dance moves, or even an outdoor city wedding. One for our urban fashion statement brides!

The lighting and shadow play in this shoot highlights the depth in which wedding photography can be stretched to. This couple shoot gives grace to the artistic options when capturing your special day. Play around, have fun with your photographer and capture those intimate moments in a space that resonates with your character.
