If you love The Hunger Games as much as we do, then you’d certainly obsess with today’s shoot. Peppered with lots of Hunger Games wedding details, it features the symbol of The Capitol, Katniss‘ bow and arrow, a stunning wedding gown and a serious love triangle. The details of this wedding shoot are to die for! Alright, all for you The Hunger Games fans, this one if for you!
Let’s take it from Bonny Bailey, designer of the shoot:
I had a client that came into the wedding venue and really wanted to do something different. Maybe a theme of sorts. Since the venue has a dramatic vintage feel, I recommended making it her own home for the most drama. After further discussion she described a dress… a wedding dress that was not just white, but that had some character. I quickly thought of having a Katniss and her dramatic outfits. We ended up talking for hours about having a Hunger Games wedding and this is my vision come to life.
I refused to go too blatantly obvious on the design. Themes with an edge can still be pretty. And that was what I was hoping to achieve.
This is a love triangle of two men and one woman. One woman who has her own opinions and design and these men want to just fit in her world.
I love the use of flowers anywhere there would be arrows. It softens the design aesthetic. Any Katniss character would not feel confident without her message from Haymitch urging her to do what she was thinking anyway. I love the subtle touch of roses and snow to create Snow’s Garden and her empowerment within it. And of course, no cake can exist without the Mellark Bakery.
