A gorgeous Monet inspired wedding photo shoot, photographed by Samantha Ong Photography, is featured in the Wedluxe online blog. A romantic, French, pastel design brings to life the beauty of the series ‘Water Lilies’; oil paintings done by Claude Monet, in the late 1800s. This elegant wedding theme – co-styled by The Social Rose & Swoon Events – features exquisite watercolours with organic elements throughout every detail.

The invitations – created by So Pretty In Print – set the tone, with its simple classic design; showcasing both the watered, pastel colour palette, along with mini flower detailing, allowing the invitations to reflect the textural aspects of the Water Lilies series.

It is known that Claude Monet’s inspiration for this specific series of oil painting was the garden Monet had planted, outside his home in France. The bouquet and boutonnieres were designed to imitate the natural beauty of Monet’s original muse. Using a variety of greens, roses, peonies, tweedia, butterfly ranunculus and other wild flowers as fillers, in both the bouquet and boutonniere to create a graceful organic style, that would amplify the enchantment of any bride’s special day.

The delicate water colours are accented with gold urns and chairs – provided by Detailz Couture Event Rentals – to enhance the wow-factor and bring forth a French country aura to the overall concept. The tall pussy willows adds yet another element of texture in an airy display to really create an impact, while allowing guests to appreciate the artistic beauty.

Any bride would fall in love all over again having this organic, airy design, with its simple yet elegant array of colours and details, being a modern take on an iconic masterpiece.
