A Wedding with Geometric Details and Colourful Florals

What happens when a very talented wedding planner and floral designer gets married? An explosion of colour and incredible flowers is what happens! Terri didn’t want her wedding to look like her ‘work’, so she went all out and created such an awesome wedding full of colourful florals and modern geometric details.

I’m a big flower lover, so when I saw the pictures of this wedding with its plethora of bright, fun flowers I fell in love. I’m also a big fan of the gold geometric trend, and I think the combination of the two styling elements works so well.

Most of the styling details were handmade by the couple and their friends and family (they have some very talented people in their lives!), and a fabulous industrial venue gave them a blank canvas to style as they wished. Of course, florals are the main focal features of the wedding styling, from the beautiful displays on the tablescapes to the pretty suspended florals in cool handmade gold geometric structures. Terri also created a really cool floral arrangement for the awesome gold geometric wall hanging on the front of the bar.

The fabulous colours shine through every detail of this wedding, from the flowers to the tablescapes, and also Terri’s fabulous wedding dress with its amazing teal petticoat layer!

Seriously, you will love the details of this wedding, so enjoy these pictures captured by Sarah Eubank Photography.

Colourful and Intimate

“As a wedding planner and floral designer our wedding HAD to feel different to any other wedding; I didn’t want it to feel like “work”. I wanted it to be colourful, full of personal touches, unexpected surprises, and very intimate.

A Classic Brympton House Wedding with a Funfair

Fern and James’ wedding is beautifully classic but with a fun twist, and these picture by Martin Dabek capture the day perfectly.┬áThe couple had a traditional church wedding ceremony at Sherborne Abbey followed by a reception at the beautiful Brympton House.

The delicate ivory, pink, mauve and lavender work in harmony to create a wonderfully pretty colour palette that brings the wedding to life. Stunning bridal bouquets and floral arrangements in these pretty colours complemented the stunning lavender bridesmaid dresses perfectly.

Fern chose a stunning Caroline Castigliano wedding dress (eventually) in a fit and flare silhouette that was perfect for their classic wedding. Everything about the styling of this wedding is elegant and charming.

To mix up the classic element, Fern and James threw a funfair party in the magnificent grounds of Brympton House. Carousel rides, fairground games, an ice cream parlour and even fire-eaters… yep, fire eaters! Just look how much fun they had at their wedding…

A Fun Twist

“I would describe our Brympton House wedding as a traditional, classic wedding but with a fun twist. We chose an ivory and lavender colour scheme, with contemporary elegance in the dress designs and wedding cake styles, and fun elements of a funfair with carousel, stalls, fire dancers, crepe and ice cream stand, firepit and photobooth.

“When we first discussed our ideas and wedding budget we agreed that investing in a good professional photographer was key. We came across Martin Dabek’s fantastic portfolio and immediately knew it was the style of wedding photography we wanted. Also, Martin was really excited about our ideas and could not wait to capture pictures of our Sherborne Abbey ceremony.”

Bride and groom kissing at Vondeling vineyard

A Luxe Winter Wedding at a Vineyard

Anja and Charl’s luxe winter wedding at Vondeling vineyard near Cape Town oozes elegance and charm. At the vineyard there is a white fairytale chapel that combines old world charm with modern elegance – such a unique and beautiful place to exchange vows. Anja arrived at the chapel in a 1956 Classic Rover in racing green.

Anja and Charl chose to have a winter wedding. In keeping with the season Anja wore a white wedding dress with the most exquisite detail, including long sheer and lace sleeves, stunning scalloped edge train, eye-catching plunging lace neckline and sexy plunging back. The detail of this dress is so divine. To keep warm Anja wore a cute fur wrap around her shoulders.

Anja’s bouquet of beautiful luscious deep burgundy red, white and cream roses framed with eucalyptus contrasted her dress beautifully. Charl wore a complementing buttonhole with a deep red rose and sprig of eucalyptus, and he even matched his tie and socks with the deep burgundy red.

The floral arrangements in the chapel complemented Anja’s bridal blooms, and the reception tablescapes were elegant yet simple. Floral arrangements placed on round mirrors with candles in pretty cut glass votives added to the winter ambiance. Each place setting was laid with a silver charger and glass plate with a napkin wrapped with an elegant laser-cut paper design. The top table for Anja and Charl was set in front of the cosy fire with a long mirror adorned with floral arrangements and candles in tall class candlestick holders.

This vineyard wedding is so elegant and full of winter wedding must-haves. I hope you enjoy looking through these pretty pictures by Michelle Du Toit.

A Pretty Lavender and Silver Wedding in a Country Pub

Alyx and Cam’s Lincolnshire wedding is full of really lovely little touches which show that you don’t have to have a huge, lavish wedding if that’s not your thing.

Their wedding was a relaxed affair surrounded by their family and friends. Alyx and Cam had their wedding ceremony at Stamford registry office followed by a celebration at The Blue Bell. As their wedding took place in the summer their guests could enjoy the pub’s garden, especially the children (and I’m sure some adults) who had fun playing with bubbles.

The couple chose a lavender and silver wedding colour palette for their styling, and with pops of pink it really looks beautiful. I love the pretty bridal bouquets full of gorgeous summer flowers in lavender, whites and pinks. What makes these bouquets really cute are the little daisies with their vivid yellow centres.

For the tablescape and decor Alyx and Cam kept it simple, with crisp white table linen, potted lavender plants and handwritten luggage tag place names. So much of the wedding details were handmade, including tissue paper balls and flowers, candles in jars and bunting, all co-ordinated in the lavender and silver wedding colour scheme. The wedding cake looks so good, and again they kept it simple and chose a four tier naked cake with berries.

Alyx’s five bridesmaids wore stunning dresses in silvery grey to complement the styling. The mixture of strapless and cold shoulder detailed dresses, each with beaded detailing, looked great together.

The bridesmaid dress colour dresses really made Alyx’s white wedding dress stand out. This dress is incredible! She chose a white satin fit and flare dress with a dazzling intricately beaded neckline and back – the back really is something special!

The groom and his best man wore smart blue suits, Cam with a matching waistcoat, and silver grey ties to coordinate with the bridesmaids. If you’re a tattoo lover, these guys have got some pretty cool ink!

It’s really lovely to see so many children at a wedding, running around and having fun. The flower girls look like they had the most amazing day.

As I mentioned earlier, sometimes less is more. Weddings don’t necessarily have to be all about big blooms and lavish details. I hope you love these pictures by BGS Weddings as much as I do.

A Handmade Cooling Castle Barn Wedding with an Italian Vibe

I just know you will fall in love with every detail of Kelly and Luca’s beautiful Cooling Castle Barn wedding. This wedding is so stylish, and if you are looking for inspiration for a castle wedding then look no further! The couple wanted a rustic Italian vibe, and the result is really chic – crisp whites, an abundance of pretty green foliage and pops of copper feature throughout the beautiful styling.

Rustic simplicity and elegance are key. Simple sprigs of rosemary tied with string on the place settings, and copper sequinned table runners with pretty little vases of white flowers create a real wow factor on the tables. There’s also elegant copper calligraphy galore.

Kelly and Luca really thought about the little personal and fun touches to complete their wedding. Each member of their bridal party received a lovely little box filled with little treats, guests received favours in personalised hessian bags, and they even treated their guests to a sweetie buffet and a shot and pimp your Prosecco bar (my kinda wedding!).

When you see these amazing pictures by Michelle Cordner Photography you will see just how much attention to detail Kelly and Luca put into creating their perfect Cooling Castle Barn wedding.

Italian Vibe

“Luca and I wanted our wedding day to represent everything we enjoy and love, and to share it with people we care about. Luca is half Italian so we wanted to introduce an Italian vibe all the way through the wedding, from the food, style, language and even their traditions.

“As soon as we stepped inside Cooling Castle Barn wedding venue we fell in love with the place. Its wooden beams, high ceilings, exposed brick and perfectly kept lawns were exactly what we’d been looking for. It gave our day the relaxed atmosphere we wanted.”
