The Enchanted Chapel
Carla from Mooi Photography and Plank Kreatief was inspired to do this extraordinary shoot at Bosjes that they titled, “The Enchanted Chapel”. With a variation of textures, lines and warm colours of red, black and gold, creates a very extravagant atmosphere. They explain all the details of the shoot below.
Inspired by the striking architectural curves of the iconic Bosjes Chapel, this shoot focused on modern lines and bold colours. Soft textures were used to compliment the structural designs. The chapel and surrounds offer a wide range of artistic masterpieces, the aim of the shoot was to play within the natural and constructed beauty of this environment.
We decided on alternative flower and decor to suit this alternative new chapel. Dried branches served as bouquet and base of the table arrangement. The bouquet was then further dressed with small red origami flower petals to complement the paper theme and create a sense of cohesion throughout the shoot.
The same effort was put into the table scape with dried leaves, dried herbs and black sprayed flowers to imitate the strong lines found in the art of origami. Layers of black and grey velvet and soft grey tulle was the perfect base for the matt black plates, cutlery and black glassware. The goal was to create a moody and bold table scape with dark colours and flashes of gold and red.
