Vibrant, energetic peacock wedding inspiration – inspired by the Stroke Society

If you’re looking to incorporate bright, vibrant colours into your wedding styling and need a theme to tie it all together, peacocks are the perfect inspiration. Wedding trends come and go, but peacock styling ideas are revisited and reinvented every season – this is one of my absolute favourites using fabulously colourful florals, coloured table decorations and glitter art for a whole new dimension of wedding make up art! Lovely Sarah Wayte shared her images with us, and Karen Luxford, the talented planner who coordinated this editorial photoshoot, tells us a little more. It all takes place at Moor Hall wedding venue, and there’s a full list of the brilliant Essex wedding suppliers involved at the end of the blog post!

“Given the fact that the model, Grace, and I have both recently overcome strokes (at a very young age, I may add!), I had the idea to incorporate the Stroke Society colour of purple with vibrant bursts of teals, blues and greens to give it life and energy. The peacock idea naturally developed from this colour palette which, in turn, led to the idea of drama, reflected in the make up and the use of the motorcycle!

All suppliers worked to a brief of “vibrant, energetic and wild but keeping class and elegance – in purples, teals, blues and greens”. I was so happy to see that every one of them saw my vision perfectly and what they produced just wowed me.

Two years ago I started my training with UKAWP and have newly launched as a Wedding Planner – www.karenluxford.co.uk.

  • Do you have 5 minutes to read something really romantic? The story of @durhamroseuk  is wonderful: a prospective groom with an idea for the perfect engagement ring, who had to search far and wide and eventually design his own! After quite an adventure in the making, she said yes, they married... and the UK's leading bespoke engagement ring supplier was born! There's a little more to it, including the Dragons Den bit - but you can read all about that on the blog! For now, I'm in LOVE with this pendant Durham Rose created to match one of their bespoke rings. Isn't it wonderful? #customrings #bespokeengagementrings #uniqueengagementrings #engaged  #gettingmarried #durhamrose #durhamrosejewellery #bespokejewellery #behindthescenes #rosegold #ballerinaring #ballerinanecklace #matchingset #handmadejewellery #instajewellerygroup #hattongarden #london #fashion #design #handmade #bespoke #jewellery #jewelry #weddingring #wedding #engagementring #weekendvibes #dazzle #ringoftheday #ringsofinstagram
