Last week we launched our most recent lookbook, Bicyclette Get's Hitched, celebrating the beginning of wedding season and styling bridesmaids dresses three different ways. Knowing that we couldn't have a bridal-themed lookbook without fresh flowers (definitely one of the most important parts, wouldn't you agree?) and fabulous shoes to complement the gorgeous looks, we called upon a few of our local favourites to help us out and pull all the details together.
Becky from Blush & Bloom amazed me with what she created with the floral arrangements, translating my vision perfectly. I wanted to incorporate Mexican elements into the styling of the shoot, so I wanted to play with a colourful palette that was fun and a little wild. Instead of arrangement that were "too perfect", we opted for a variety of sizes and more scattered flowers across the set in various vessels. Mixed with a few of my own props, such as gold pineapples and mini palm trees, vibrant throws and vintage dishes, it was exactly what I had dreamed up.
As for the shoes, we had fun pulling from Heel Boy, opting for more neutral and metallic options and throwing in one pair of amazing floral pumps to add a little colour to the mix as well and play into our theme. With so many styles to choose from in their spring collection, it was hard to decide on just a few, but we were so happy with how well everything paired together and how it brought our looks to the next level.
