Bold, bright and bursting with colour, this wedding inspiration shoot at The Button Factory was inspired by the playful artistic style of French Fauve, Henri Matisse. Bringing together some of Melbourne’s brightest talents, the shoot was led by photographer Madeline Kate, and stylist Jazmine of Cloth and Confetti.
The prints and patterns designed by Cloth and Confetti, were influenced by Henri’s collage artworks and his famous quote “He who loves, flies, runs, and rejoices; he is free” is printed onto a cloth banner running down the main tablescape. The arch shapes featured throughout the shoot represent those found inside art galleries including the large ceremony arch provided by Willow Tree Events. The ceremony location itself was in the art gallery space at The Button Factory in Cheltenham, Melbourne.
An upbeat summer colour palette of yellow, pink, peach and mint, reflected Henri’s bold colour compositions, perfectly represented in the amazing streamer installation created by Bangin’ Hangins. The tablescape featured arched mustard menus from Studio Silva, terracotta clay favours and handmade geometric vases by Oh Hey Grace, acrylic charger plates cut by South East Plastics, hand painted crockery by Carla Dinnage, custom printed cloth napkins and dipped white cutlery by Cloth and Confetti. Following Henri’s philosophy that “there are always flowers for those who want to see them”, The flower District created magic with vibrant fresh poppies, baby’s breath and colour-sprayed dried palm leaves.
Henri’s use of movement and flow in his artworks was captured through the flowing gowns from Georgia Young Couture, modelled playfully by Emily Rok. Emily’s glowing summer look with orange pop eye shadow was painted by Lili and Pearl. The desserts were created in collaboration with My Cake Studio, who translated the prints from the cloth, onto the icing and texture of a three tier wedding cake and dessert platter.
