When this styled shoot first hit my inbox, I knew I wanted to save it for something special. International Women’s Day is the perfect time to share this Steel Magnolias styled shoot which celebrates women. Steel Magnolias is a film adaptation of Robert Harling’s play. Released in 1989, the movie celebrates women and the relationships we get to create, grow, live and experience together.
When looking at styled shoots like this one, as a bride to be, it’s a great way to get ideas. Look at the gown, the shape, silhouette, colour. The neckline, how the model’s hair is styled, her makeup, flowers etc. What do you like, or don’t like?
“I’d rather have thirty minutes of wonderful than a lifetime of nothing special.” – Julia Roberts in Steel Magnolias
The Colour Palette
The color palette consists of various pink tones with accents of burgundy, yellow ochre, metallic gold and dusty hues of eucalyptus.
