Blue and violet wedding dreams
They have an almost maritime touch, these invitations that float away on a sea of blue watercolour. In spirited curves, like a cabin at sea, two people send an invitation to attend the exchanging of their wedding vows.
A jewellery box made from turquoise textile demands attention next to the cards: like an oyster, it harbours the precious gold ring. The dark blue stone is set in pure gold, decorated with a wreath of lighter accents. Her gold chain is reminiscent of a blossoming summer flower.
It is the many small embellishments, the blue and violet blossoms and details, that make this photo shoot of Lovely Weddings by Viktoria Antal and photographer Melanie Nedelko a journey through time and into another world.
Nothing is left to chance here: everything is intentional and merges into a harmonious whole. The blue bridal shoes are studded with shining diamonds. Like Marie Antoinette at a ball in Paris, they boldly accompany the bride into marriage.
Layer upon layer of lace embraces her delicate silhouette. Lace plays around her enchanting face, artfully decorating her precious dress.
We are living in a dream that doesn’t want to end.
The bridal bouquet speaks the blue and violet language of the sea and the mountains, of earth and fire. And a dark, large candle becomes the saviour of light.
