“Drawing inspiration from the majestic, sweeping architecture of Melbourne’s Parliament Building and the iconic inner-city Siglo Bar, Sophisticated Subtleties encompasses the contrasts of clean contemporary elegance alongside bold old-world drama. The result, styled by Bow Creative, is an epistle to the sophisticated, intimate weddings occurring all over the city today, a vision of youthful romance luminous against the grey landscapes of a modern-day metropolis.
Monochromatic tones underlay the exquisite sophistication of the day, perfectly complimenting the gritty textures of the city with a sleekly soft, modern feel. Cascading florals in cool ivory shades embellish an overlay of textural intricacies, whilst gothic candlesticks accentuate a sense of intensity and occasion. This is a moment in which all emotions are enhanced, romance abounds, and laughter is the ultimate accessory, brought to life by The Celebrandt, Kat.
This of-the-now couple are an epitome of classic elegance in a black tux for him and crisp contemporary sheath for her, softened with structured silk. And for later, a flowing overlay hinting at a chic mini and the party that is to come.
Contemporary hues of soft ash, slate green and rich, inky burgundy are woven against a Mad About Cakes creation of soft rust and cool blush to create an achromatic ensemble in perfect harmony with the urban setting.
For a peek into a style that pays homage to the vibrant, dynamic cities we live in and the romance-soaked histories they contain, mix yourself a negroni and take a moment to scroll through Sophisticated Subtleties, captured through the artfully on-point lens of La Moment Photography.”
