GAUGUIN Inspired Wedding Styled Shoot | Tropical Island Destination

Earlier in the year  I had the opportunity to do an extensive tropical styled shoot with this great group of creatives and it was one we really looked forward to!

So this is more or less what went into the thinking: Gauguin was very experimental with his use of colour and by doing so pulled the viewer into the emotion and feeling of the scene as opposed to realistically mimicking it. By tapping into his creativity in terms of poses and colour we were hoping to emphasise the mood and feel of the island themed style and highlight the incredible details of the gowns, make up and decor. We had a full day of shooting and approached the theme in a very light hearted but ethereal manner. We wanted the models to interact with the environment and each other, very similar to the way Gauguin’s figures interacted with each other in an almost dreamy and affectionate way.

We are busy putting together a behind the scenes/art video which we’ll share soon, but also follow this link  by Tickled Pink events to read a little more about the inspiration behind each of the vendors who did such an incredible job on this awesome shoot!
GAUGUIN DESTINATION WEDDING

“The shoot was inspired by a deep forest setting and the tropical paintings of the artist Paul Gauguin… The simplicity of the images, the radiance of the colours and depiction of island life has always appealed to me and my senses.
For this shoot we wanted to capture raw fine art images of beautiful, natural ladies posing in “Gaugenesque” ways – capturing their natural beauty and the beauty of their surroundings. The colours are vivid and striking and we used flowers, shells, canvas paintings and paintbrushes to tell the story.” – Natalie Elliot (Tickled Pink)
