Living Coral Color Wedding Inspiration
Pink Book teamed up with some of the Cape’s top wedding vendors to bring you this coral color wedding photo shoot, inspired by the Pantone of the year. “PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral emits the desired, familiar, and energizing aspects of color found in nature. This vivifying and effervescent color mesmerizes the eye and mind.“ – Pantone.com. Photographer, Sulet Fourie Photography and videographers, Red Beard Productions, helped us bring this shoot to life with the amazing photos and video below:
Coral Wedding Inspiration Photo Shoot:
The Venue & Coordination
Using a bright colour such has living coral calls for a unique and vibrant venue. The Colorbox Studios is a chic city venue in Cape Town, the perfect fit for this shoot. The beautiful green plants and colourful wall murals of the venue added to the overall atmosphere. While the hustle and bustle of the city streets below played stage to some awesome urban shots. With the expert coordination of Carmen at Hop Events, both our styled shoot and wedding workshop went off without a hitch.
Coral Wedding Decor, Flowers, Stationery & Cake
Sibu and the team at Grand Style Hiring did an incredible job with balancing the colour pallet on the table decor and flowers. The layout expertly highlighted the coral colour by using complementary elements of brown, white, cream and gold. The amazing table numbers, menus, invitations, and custom gold fan wedding program were supplied by Secret Diary wedding stationery. We absolutely LOVED the unique touches added with the coral tassels and wax seal. Finally, we had a beautiful 3-tier wedding cake from SugarCakes, featuring intricate, hand-crafted sugar flowers in varying shades of peach, cream, and coral. This completed the whole setup and tied our theme together perfectly.
Wedding Dresses & Suits
For this styled shoot, we featured two completely unique and diverse wedding dresses from Emily D. Designs bridal studio in Cape Town. The designer, Kyrstin, illustrated the diversity of her range with two completely contrasting dresses – an intricate, embellished lace dress and a plain, simplistic two-piece top and skirt set. In her own words, she said, “I felt that these two dresses were a good representation of my range as you have the option of the feminine lace frill full dress which has a sleek but pretty effect. And then the separate skirt and top which is slightly more contemporary. The full skirt featuring pockets and the cute top with bow and mesh details.”
The striking groom’s suits showcased on the day were provided by Frank Bespoke men’s attire. With our groom being clad in both burgundy red and emerald green suits, this photo shoot perfectly illustrates that the standard black suit is definitely not mandatory anymore.
Hair, Makeup & Jewellery
Hair and Makeup artist Yolandi Wilson MUA drew inspiration from our mood board and created looks that were subtle but tied into the wedding theme perfectly. The makeup was a lovely balance of dark and dramatic eyes and light, natural lips. For hairstyles, she went from an elegant up-do to the fashionably loose and natural look.
The jewellery for this shoot was supplied by Rosette Jewellery. The dramatic and dark gemstone used in both the earrings and wedding ring worked well with the bride’s makeup, tying the whole look together nicely.
