Shot in Seville, Spain, this colorfully styled conceptual fusion wedding celebrates two rich, vibrant cultures
Pre Wedding Photoshoots, Wedding Planning - Oct 28, 2020
Wedding ceremonies have undergone many changes over time as the world has gotten smaller thanks to beautiful multicultural unions across the globe. And inspired by this thought, Optimum Weddings came up with the idea of a colorful decor inspiration shoot for couples who belong to different cultures and wish to tie the knot in Europe. Shot in the idyllic Spanish city of Seville, and keeping the current COVID-19 scenario in mind, it showcases an intimate yet colorful wedding ceremony that effortlessly blends inter-cultural festivities with the heritage of the city.
Sharing her thought process behind conceptualizing the shoot, Dyana Dessar, founder of Optimum Weddings, shares, “The world stopped in its tracks with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, and wedding plans of many couples went into chaos, but as they say, love cannot be canceled only postponed. Today, due to globalization, we are witnessing many fusion weddings where couples hailing from different cultures tie the knot surrounded by their loved ones in a colorful yet intimate celebration.”
“For this shoot, in particular, we chose the beautiful city of Seville for its architectural beauty, and wove a story around an exotic Indian bride tying the knot with a Spanish groom in a celebration that unifies both their time-honored traditions in a magnificent union.”
Replete with vibrant blooms and metallic accents, the decor tastefully showcases the convergence of two rich cultures while making full use of the stunning views that the city has to offer. Elegant and contemporary, the table settings at the wedding feast strike a stunning contrast with the pristine white surroundings, while the gently swaying florals on the wooden archways lend an earthy vibe to the Indian wedding.
Dyana shares, “From the vibrant yet intimate ceremony in the city center at the historic Hotel Alfonso XIII to an elegant reception and wedding feast on the terrace that gives stunning views of the city, we ensured that the fusion of cultures was visible in each shot.”
