Styled engagement shoots are on the rise and we are HERE FOR IT! But with so many designs, aesthetics, and trends, it’s hard to know where to begin. Enter Marianne Noh, owner of Dukes And Daisies Your wedding should be beautiful and unique, just like your love story. We are a... an event design and planning company specializing in creating intimate, modern, minimalist, and joyful experiences.
Marianne established her business in 2016 as a planner and quickly expanded her services to event and floral design at the request of her couples. In recent years, Marianne has become known for her playful design aesthetic (reflecting her cheerful nature!), even making a recent guest appearance on the Marilyn Denis Show. She loves collaborating with like-minded industry vendors known for their high level of artistry and creativity and works closely with couples on customizing their events, in a personal, fun, and beautiful way!
Thanks for speaking with us Marianne! Please tell us a bit about your design aesthetic and the concept behind this styled engagement shoot?
I love using contrast when developing designs for my clients—high and low, traditional and modern, masculine and feminine. While Toronto was in lockdown, I had to get creative for one of my couples. Rona and Mike wanted their engagement photos taken in a studio but at the time, studios were not permitted to open to the public. So I quickly put together a team of industry collaborators and styled a wedding-inspired shoot, using the couple as our real-life models! The shoot centered around the couple’s Filipino-Canadian heritage and incorporated meaningful touches such as the terno sleeves on Rona’s dress. The result was a super fun wedding-inspired styled engagement session!
That’s so much fun! And since it’s all in the details tell us a bit more about some of the design choices.
We used our new Dukes And Daisies Your wedding should be beautiful and unique, just like your love story. We are a... brand color palette of jades and blushes as a starting point. We wanted to create an editorial look and feel but with a playful touch, which we brought through the modern take on a traditional Filipino kamayan feast. The late Elsa Peretti’s dishes inspired the table design.
