Can I talk about stadiums, and then weddings? In fact, do I need to say any more?! Surely – surely if we’re looking at letting sports fans gather in their thousands, the news for weddings from spring 2021 will be encouraging. I am desperately hoping for all of you to be able to celebrate, even if that means smaller celebrations than normal, or using outside spaces, or social distancing from vulnerable relatives. Weddings WILL happen again – and this styled photoshoot is here to provide a little inspiration for when they do!
Good morning, beautiful! Today we’re sharing a key look for 2019 weddings – one that can be recreated easily once you ‘get’ the styling concepts – and one I know will make 2019 a year of weddings to remember. It’s all about understated elegance with careful attention to a few quality details. For me this is a look of almost effortless wedding style – combining simple, minimal details with the smallest touches of real luxury and softness. The florals are absolutely key: delicate and feminine blooms in a soft palette of ivory, nude, blush and soft peach with pops of glorious coral. Texture comes from hare’s tail grasses and striking white anthuriums, while white lilac and butterfly ranunculus bring softness to the look. The colours are what I love most about today’s floral design: those carefully arranged coral blooms really make the arrangements look contemporary and luxurious, don’t you think?
You can hire a country manor, fill it with flowers and spend countless weeks cutting and pasting designs for your invites and table plan… but wedding blogs are here to show you you don’t have to do any of that. You can create a brilliantly amazing and memorable wedding your guests will love without all the bits people expect – just like gorgeous bride and groom Diane and Michael did. I love how they describe their day – the focus was on brilliant food and drink, making sure their guests were looked after, and choosing 3 fabulous venues for their ceremony, reception and evening party. I love it: the whole day looks and sounds just perfect – a wedding blogger’s dream!
I met lovely Tracy from The Flower House at a styled editorial shoot last September – and she’s one of the friendliest wedding creatives you could hope to meet. Tracy’s talents with flowers are a joy to witness: her arrangements are thoughtful and beautifully arranged, with huge character and a fabulous contemporary style. They’re the focal point of today’s inspiration feature, which shows you how to style a bohemian wedding with rich tones for late summer. The images are by my lovely friend Jenny Heyworth Photography for Aspire Photography Training.
Wedding shows are an amazing way to discover designers and talents you would never dream even existed… and working alongside Chosen Wedding Fair has led me to some breathtaking discoveries from true talents in the wedding industry. I’m thrilled to be introducing you to lovely Eden b. Studio today – designer Hannah creates the prettiest bridal accessories which are right up my street.
Eden b. Studio will be at the Chosen Wedding Fair in London this Sunday the 8th of October.
