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.

I am thrilled that The Wedding Community is one of the first wedding sites to feature the extraordinary new Halfpenny London The Air That We Breathe Fall 2019 Collection. I have always loved Halfpenny London wedding dresses but this collection takes it to another level.

The collection includes sixteen beautifully crafted designs, each named after a different location in London. Designed for the modern bride, these new wedding dresses are effortlessly cool.

There are some jaw-dropping designs in this collection, including the magnificent ‘Neptune’ blazer with the Breeze dress. This is a fabulous combination and has a very distinctive look.

“A magical adventure into a fairytale romance and enchanting English garden inspired this season.” – Kate Halfpenny

Halfpenny London The Air That We Breathe features ethereal princess silhouettes crafted from layers of pleated tulle, duchess satin and silk organza. The whimsical play on soft, delicate dresses and separate modern tops and skirts embodies a fashion-forward collection with a classic, feminine touch. There is also the addition of the most magnificent veils (wait until you see the Bloomsbury veil) and detachable sleeves, such as the pretty Marylebone sheer sleeves.

As with all the Halfpenny bridal collections, Kate brings incomparable creativity and versatility to her Fall 2019 Collection. Since launching her label in 2005 the London-based designer has been weaving ‘Brit cool,’ with a luxe sensibility, into her designs, creating innovative, chic dresses and separates for modern brides.

For me, the most unique pieces in the Halfpenny London Fall 2019 collection are…

This strapless layered tulle dress has an almost 1920s flapper look to it. I love the embroidered detail that adorns each layer; you will definitely shimmer down the aisle in Camden.
