Today I am excited to share this incredible Boathouse Romance Wedding Shoot with a bright colourful spring palette.
Our Bride and Groom are a little ” more birthdayed” but I feel that love has no limit and its really important that the wedding media and society see that.
The print and online media seem to obsess that beauty is found only in the young BUT something amazing rises up when there is true life in your years.
Ageing well means loving yourself, accepting body changes, and seeing this right of passage as a gift that so many don’t get.
Therefore finding love first or second time around at ANY age should be celebrated, AND represented which at the moment it is woefully not.
We need to stand up and say a HUGE No to ageism in the Wedding Industry!
Ro of the Wedding Crowd says of the shoot…
I’ve recently come to admire the wedding industry as a whole, for beginning to blossom into an industry which is inclusive and representative of all forms of love. That being said, I recently noticed something often ignored.
Flip to the front cover of any bridal magazine and you are met with a porcelain goddess no older than 30.
Whilst many bridal magazines and companies are beginning to branch out in who they represent and how they are portrayed, one often does not see a slightly older bride or couple.
Why? Older people fall in love, in fact I have witnessed the most deepest, most genuine, most understanding love from an ‘older’ couple.
So why is it that they lack representation?
The Wedding Crowd prides itself on being a wedding platform for all, no matter your sexual orientation, race, background, age etc; the list goes on. We want to provide inspiration for all.
And so the next step, and next photoshoot was clear; we wanted to represent a couple who have celebrated a few more Birthdays.
And so we brought together our Boathouse Romance Wedding Shoot.
Full of love and admiration, and even better, full of inspiration for all, no matter your age! After all, it is just a number.
Our colour scheme was chosen because spring is almost upon us and we wanted to portray something bright, colourful and completely unexpected.
Though we do love to follow trends, like the stunning nude colour palette that has been rocking about of late, we also love to subvert current trends, and we felt that this colour scheme did just that.
Styling, again inspired by the stunning Roman Boathouse, we wanted to brighten the entire backdrop and breathe some life back into the ancient boathouse. Making it less run down and forgotten, more up to date and memorable.
