How To Mix Your Modern Lifestyle With Your Traditional Wedding

A traditional color palette meets two traditional wedding styles and their combination gives this unique wedding inspiration a very modern vibe. But wait, how was this possible? Well, for starters, this magical event was pulled together by the very talented and very capable June Bloom Events, whose vision of the day brought together some stunningly brilliant wedding vendors.

The Inspiration

Stepping away from what is thought of as traditional, this shoot takes a stance on a fresh new look with a minimal, western aura. The concept for this shoot came from wanting to marry (no pun intended) South Asian cultural traditions with a romantic, western wedding vibe. 

We loved the idea of using floral garlands to decorate the ceremony space so we focused on symmetric lines and arching curves that are common in Indian art and design. To put a modern, western spin on it, we softened the colour palette by using closely related colours likes pink, blush and peach instead of very bold, highly contrasting colours.

The Pop Of Color

On the table and in the bride's hands, we punched up the colour palette a tad with touches of raspberry to play on the saturated colours that are traditionally part of South Asian celebrations. The goal was still to keep everything super romantic so raspberry was the perfect pop on the pinks, peaches, creamy, and blush. 

As for flower choice, we used perennial favourites for both western florists (carnations!) and South Asian florists (tuberose!). The intoxicating scent of tuberose - sweet and heady like jasmine - filled the space and set the mood for this romantic East-Meets-West inspired shoot.
