Lilac and lemon for a fashion-led barn wedding style, with Amanda Karen Photography

I’m a little bit in love with today. I am feeling full of the joys of spring – and we have so many wonderfully floral, vibrant and fresh wedding style features heading your way over the next few weeks I can’t wait. But today – today’s a little more special than most.

I’m thrilled to be featuring a styled wedding shoot by my friend and sponsor Amanda Karen Photography, with some of the loveliest names in the UK wedding industry. The colours – a super pretty palette of lilac and lemon – are divine. The details are just perfect. Those beautiful ribbons by Kate Cullen… fabulous. Stationery is by Megan Riera, whose gorgeous looping letterforms are right up my street! And those amazing flowers… they’re the work of the incredibly talented Jodie at Acacia. I’m so in love with today, I can’t tell you!Claire

“The inspiration behind the shoot was that stronger colour palettes at weddings are becoming more popular and we wanted to use an all-time wedding favourite – purple, and pair it with something a little more unusual that was perfect for a modern and fashion-led barn wedding – the lilac and lemon hues work beautifully with the mossy greens of the florals as well as the white painted rustic furniture.

The gold and calligraphy touches elevate the whole look with a touch of luxury. You can achieve this look by mixing a few luxury touches like coloured glassware and table linens with more rustic vintage elements like tables and chairs.

By using clever floral choices you can really maximise your budget, for example these special carnations have a beautiful blousy appearance and come in several beautiful shades, but at lesser cost than roses.

Don’t be afraid to embrace more unusual colour choices – especially in blank canvas venues like barns where they can work so well, just pair them with whites and foliage to keep the look elegant and natural.

Bridal separates are a key trend continuing forward into 2017, and by adding statement pieces like this tiara you can still achieve a look that’ll make you feel extra special on your day.” ~ Amanda Karen Photography
