There’s nothing that adds instant colour and fun to a wedding as easily as rainbow pom poms! While is why when I saw this shoot I knew I had to feature it.
The thing I love the most about these photos is that there are lots of ideas of how you can incorporate pom poms into your day in a more creative way that just hanging them from the ceiling. What about a pom pom headband, having them hanging from your bouquet or all over your cake!? You could craft a pom pom covered chandelier or throw them instead of confetti!
“This shoot was about us challenging ourselves to turn a pom-pom concept into something beautiful that translated into the wedding industry”, said stylist Janelle. “It was important to us that the style of the shoot always reflected the fun and excitement that we felt for it.”
Usually it takes a couple of months for something to be published on the blog after I receive a submission for a feature (yes, my wait list is huge!) but when Barbie and Kendra’s perfect pink pride-filled shoot landed in my inbox yesterday, and in light of the utterly tragic events in Orlando this week, I knew I had to let it jump the queue and feature it as soon as physically possible.
“I love doing styled shoots and am constantly brainstorming ideas for them that are out-of-the-box and never been seen before”, said stylist Leah of Color Pop Events. “One day the idea to do a Barbie-inspired wedding popped into my head, but I knew I wanted to shake things up a bit by have a lesbian couple for the models. I also knew that I wanted the shoot to be incredibly fun, pink and girlie. I must say that I am ecstatic with how it turned out!”
The wedding shoot, organised by the bride herself, took place in France, near Lyon. She wanted something colourful and different for her bridal party shots.
“We wanted COLOURS”, she said. “We also wanted a location that would have character. We found this old factory with no roof and instantly loved it! We wanted to have different vendors that we trust working on the photos. I had long fluid dresses in mind which would be in opposition to the structure of the factory which was very square, hard and partially destroyed.”
