Wedluxe Editorial: Pride and Prejudice

As seen in Wedluxe Magazine.

Last fall we had the honor of having our Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice shoot featured in Wedluxe Magazine and I just realized that I never shared it here, better late then never! Pride and Prejudice is one of my most favorite books (little unknown fact: it also inspired my 12th grade grad dress choice-no I will not be sharing photos!).

Set in the early 19th century in England, Pride and Prejudice is the story about how not even the strongest of pride can stand in the way of true love. I loved Elizabeth’s strong character, her passion and her determination for not marrying for any reason other than true love. Equally, I loved Mr Darcy’s silent admiration of her loyalty to her family, her intelligence and her beauty of course. This was a challenging editorial for me as I really struggled to convey the love and chemistry between Elizabeth Bennett and Mr Darcy without having a Mr Darcy in the shoot. I decided to use their love letters and the color contrast of a blushy pink and periwinkle blue to help communicate their love. Little did I know during the design process, but a few short months after our editorial was published, Pantone announced the 2016 colors of the year: Rose Quartz and Serenity. I love being ahead of the trend!

These editorials are a labor of love and creativity and they are not possible without the hard work of an incredible team. A. Elizabeth Cake’s utterly blew me away when she showed me that she had created not one, but three cakes for this shoot with love quotes from the book and a painting of the English countryside. I may have cried when I saw them. Gloria and her team at Flower Factory understood my vision and brought it to life. The details on our lovely horse’s harnesses, all floral, are breathtaking. Our horse was so patient with us and loved the camera. Please see below for the full list of talented contributors.

I hope you enjoy!
