Weird and Wonderful 1920’s Carnival Wedding Shoot

I have something really cool for you today with this epic weird and wonderful 1920’s carnival wedding inspiration. If you are considering a carnival wedding but want a new take on the theme then check out these ideas.

There’s a real ambience about this incredible concept. Combining old carnival traditions like fortune telling and kissing booths with magnificently edgy styling details makes for a real show.

Rich, dark reds teamed with vibrant teal and gold creates an amazing, warm colour palette that would be perfect for an autumn or winter wedding. The beautiful tablescapes have been created using teal silk runners, gold candlesticks and small vases of flowers. I love the place settings with gold chargers, mismatched ornate plates, place name and cute gold animal. And what carnival would be complete without a toffee apple?

The fabulous props, from the furniture to the kissing booth, the carnival photo stand to the gramophone, make this styling so special. For a carnival wedding you want the cake to be a showstopper too, and this wedding cake is certainly that! Complete with carousel-look top tier, it really is a masterpiece!

Hazel Parsons and Jenny Wren created such a spectacle with these awesome weird and wonderful 1920’s carnival styling ideas. I just know you are going to love these pictures, captured perfectly by Grant Lampard Photography.

Quirky Props

“This eclectic 1920’s carnival shoot is a combination of pretty to weird and wonderful, and captures the grandeur of a 1920’s American Carnival with a touch of modern day glamour.

“The shoot took place at the Penventon Park Hotel in Cornwall, a Georgian mansion where old world charm meets modern luxury. The woodland surroundings inspired us for the first element of the shoot – a tipi nestled within the hotel’s grounds. Fairy lights adorned the interior of the Tipi twinkling in the dark winter light.

“With an abundance of quirky props, from the freak show set to the fortune teller’s tent and everything in between, the shoot screams fun with a strong dash of charisma.”

Modern Wedding Styling at East Crossing

This modern wedding styling at East Crossing is so delightful. Although the concept is very modern and clean it’s whimsical at the same time. The styling team have been very creative with the decor details, making the styling very chic.

An abundance of gold throughout the styling gives an opulent feel, from the cutlery to the candlesticks, gold rimmed glasses and cute votives. The additional of daring black chairs and deep purple candles works so well with the table styling.

Relaxed Wedding Styling

The styling team also created a lovely seating area. A great place for wedding guests to chill out, a styled seating area is also a wonderful place for photo opportunities. For this concept two wood and rattan chairs accompany a gorgeous green velvet chair and vintage glass table with gold legs.

The overall feel of this wedding styling at East Crossing is very relaxed. In addition to the minimalistic tablescape and chill out seating area there’s a wonderful cocktail bar, a trend that’s becoming more and more popular at weddings, with bride and groom cocktail choices.

However, for me the standout element of this wedding styling is the modern honeycomb effect wooden backdrop. Used for both the ceremony backdrop and the wedding cake display, it shows how versatile a backdrop can be. The honeycomb effect inspired the detailing on the wedding cake and the cute iced biscuits too.

Finally, romantic white and green florals adorn the venue and look spectacular in the bridal bouquet against the bride’s sleeved wedding dress.

I absolutely love these modern wedding styling details, and I hope these pictures give you lots of ideas for your own wedding.
