Beauty and the Beast Inspired Wedding Styling

Beauty and the Beast, the new Disney film, is so much more than just a movie. It’s a phenomenon, and the most incredible inspiration for wedding styling.

The fairytale love story of Beauty and the Beast is so captivating, and has become many people’s all-time favourite Disney film (it’s mine, is it yours too?). If you love it too, there are so many elements of the film and the design you can incorporate into your wedding. I’m not saying full-on Beauty and the Beast décor with items from the Disney Store and a yellow dress (unless of course this is your thing). Just subtle, fabulous details.

The creative team behind this Beauty and the Beast wedding shoot created woodland wedding styling using elements from the film to enhance the look. They brought the dark woodland setting to life with red roses, pewter décor and a beautiful white Ian Stuart ballgown wedding dress.

Even if you don’t fancy a Beauty and the Beast themed wedding, these styling ideas provide beautiful inspiration. I love the gold drip wedding cake topped with meringues (it looks so good!), and the red rose bridal crown is perfect for an autumn or winter wedding.

‘Be our guest’ and step this way to enjoy the glory of this Beauty and the Beast wedding styling…

Wonderful Love Story

“The inspiration behind this elegant woodland shoot was my favourite Disney film of all time, Beauty and the Beast”. With the film released in March, I felt sure that it would inspire many couples to incorporate elements of this wonderful love story into their wedding day.

“I therefore set about planning a shoot that would show couples ways to introduce small hints of the film in an achievable way, via florals, props and their choice of colour palette.”
