Fusion. We’re surrounded by it.
From the food that we eat, to art, literature, film, entire cultures even! Fusion is an amazing thing, and something that today’s incredible styled shoot by Tamara Brown personifies beautifully. The recipe of African textiles and decor, with modern bohemian styling elements and accessories, with just a hint of western traditional bride and groom looks, is like nothing we’ve seen before.
So often, we hear about couples who created a wedding inspired by a single theme or element, and while there’s absolutely nothing wrong in that (in fact it can make for a stunning focus!) this shoot is proof that you can also very successfully combine all the elements that speak to you as a couple to create something cohesive, beautiful and truly reflective of you.
Let’s hear what the stylist, Tamara has to say…
It’s a modern twist of culture and style. From the African decor, to the bohemian jewellery, and the classic looks of both the bride and groom we bring to you a new look. A new vibe. Set in the art district of downtown Los Angeles from the urban streets to the brick walls we wanted to focus on something that was different. Something that any Bride and Groom could do for themselves. We all came together and wanted to do something that you don’t see that often. An African Bohemian wedding is nothing but unique!
