The shoot was intended to be thought provoking, whimsical and slightly different from the norm. Working with the talented photographer, Cassandra Collet was an absolute pleasure as she has a unique way of capturing the finer details and really helped make the shoot come alive. As styled shoots give inspiration on design and the latest trends, this shoot shows all of this but also carries a beautiful underlying message.
Luke Krone Events can create the most beautiful weddings in the most magnificent venues but it is up to the couple getting married to remember to ‘’insert the love’’ the most important ingredient to the picture perfect wedding day.
Often people start dreaming about their wedding day long before they meet the person they want to marry. So when it comes to planning your actual wedding, you can often find yourself caught up in the details and forget what it’s really about, love. It was this exact insight that inspired Luke Krone to capture the picture perfect wedding with one tiny detail unattended to – the groom.
By replacing the groom with a mannequin, Luke plants the question, what is one’s wedding day really about? Inspired by a ‘Brechtian Theatre’ – a style of theatre that relies on the audience’s reflective detachment rather than emotional involvement, Luke hopes to provoke rational self-reflection, reminding us to reflect on what is real.
