A Romantic Coastal Editorial Inspired by Shakespeare

It’s no surprise that this photoshoot was inspired  by Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet because it has to be about one of the most romantic elopement editorials we’ve laid our eyes on!

Blue Sky Flowers makes our hearts  skip a beat with a beautiful, organic backdrop, overflowing with greenery and an abundance of burgundy, peach, blush pink and ivory blooms. We’re also enamored with the delicate gowns from Cherry Williams which would be fitting for any heroine and we particularly love how ethereal their movement is in the lovely coastal setting. Everything here is sheer perfection and you’ll be caught up in the best daydream with these images from Julie Michaelsen Photography!

From Gemma of Rosy Apple Events: We have such beautiful wild and sprawling coastlines in England and I’ve longed to design an editorial shoot by the sea. A few months ago Julie Michaelsen approached me about creating a coastal inspired shoot and I jumped at the chance to work together!

We wanted to instill a sense of enduring love and beauty into the design, whilst remaining true to the environment and our English heritage. This year we celebrated the 400th anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare, the original romantic playwright who is known and revered worldwide as one of the most famous poets of love.

“My bounty is as boundless as the sea,
My love as deep; the more I give to thee,
The more I have, for both are infinite.”
-William Shakespeare

This beautiful quote from Romeo & Juliet became our initial source of inspiration for the shoot. It perfectly describes how the ocean is just like love, the rough seas signifying the ups and downs of a modern marriage and waves that can rock us. The depths of the oceans conveying an enduring love which knows no bounds.

We chose a colour palette of muted blues sensitive to the coastal environment, and used beautiful, textured florals with additional hues of plum, pink and peach and lush greenery to create a fresher look.

Our tablescape featured a selection of beautiful hand-thrown artisan dinnerware by Broste Copenhagen, I love how the textured glazed stoneware perfectly compliments the mood of the shoot and the varying patterns in the glaze reflect the rippling waves. Even the colours were sensitive to the design mirroring the pale blue seas and bleached sandy beaches. We kept the rest of the styling very organic, relaxed and simple, using hand-dyed natural linens, artisanal style charcuterie boards and hand-calligraphed stationery.

I loved the floral arch created with an abundance of textured, overflowing florals and the use of carefully curated heirloom pieces which enforced the romantic, English inspired aesthetics. The Cherry Williams dresses perfectly complimented the mood, and we loved how the fabric was fluid and moved beautifully in the wind.
