A probable descendent of geek chic, the bookish chic style has caught our eye for a while now and it’s finally time to meet the challenge. Although the Chinese version of bookish chic, what La Bride wedding blog would like to call “zhi xing feng”, might vary a little, carrying with it a hint of #freshness and #cuteness. As a contrast to the rather organised and well-learned nature that comes with the bookish chic style, we’ve decided to head to the thickets centennial park for our shoot. Wilderness versus the intellectuals.
If you thought we faced challenges during our previous shoots, it’s only because you haven’t heard about our collaboration shoot this June. Before, rain was our enemy, this time, it was the wind.
Don’t miss out the official film cleverly made by Le Motion Wedding Films below.
It is a bad day to be out in the open. We were a few short blows away from hearing the line “you are not in Kansas anymore”. (Thumbs up for the Wizard of Oz reference?) Our props weren’t staying in place and the balloon we specially ordered for the shoot…. Well let’s just say could very well be in munchkin land by now.
But in the end, we can’t say we weren’t thankful for the blizzard-like wind that day. Thickets blowing in the wildness of the wind provided a stark contrast for our bookish chic set and gave both our photos and videos just that bit of oomph.
Our set designer had the great idea of using purple against the golden backdrop of the thickets to make the colours really pop. Stick a cute little windmill into the pages of books, and you’ve got yourself an interesting little set.
Don’t you just love the combination of golden thickets and that blue sky? Alas, let’s not forget to give thanks to Puregraphy Wedding Photos for their work!
You can’t be bookish without books. That’s why we’ve made the effort to turn our wedding cake into one. With a globe on the top and an antique suitcase at the bottom to add just a bit more touch of bookishness. And they are all, can you believe it, made out of icing.
You’d probably notice how strong the wind is just by looking at the balloon and the model’s hair ;) If you like our collaboration shoots, stay updated with our posts. La bride will continue to look for more wedding locations in Canberra, Melbourne, Newcastle, Brisbane and more for your inspiration.
