Hauntingly Romantic Autumn Wedding Inspiration

Happy Halloween! This is my favourite time of year; the leaves turning glorious colours, the longer nights, fireworks and bonfires, and, of course, Halloween. What better way to join in with today’s festivities than to share this unbelievably cool Hauntingly Romantic Autumn Wedding Inspiration shoot?

If you long for an autumn wedding then you will love these wedding styling ideas. OK, I’ve bigged up the Halloween aspect for the purposes of today, but this concept of moody autumn colours creates such a romantic, almost Gothic vibe, perfect for a glorious autumn wedding.

The creative team used an eclectic mix of gold, black, burgundy, white and muted caramels to create a visual delighted. The dark tablescape with marble place mats, black glassware and black and gold cutlery really sets the scene of this intriguing wedding concept.

The styling details exude a moody, romantic and vintage feel, and the use of natural elements including leaves, berries, feathers and even a skull add a touch of rustic charm to the design.

I love the way the creative team made this shoot into a beautiful, modern take on Halloween rather than using a traditional colour palette. The dark colours of course set the scene, but the use of the skull, natural floral eye masks, breathtaking flowers and incredible black wedding cake with gold leaf detail really add a hauntingly romantic ambiance.

So, feast your eyes on some of the most romantic Halloween wedding inspiration you will ever see…

Boho bride in field of lavender

Lavender Boho Luxe Wedding Inspiration

This dreamy fairytale of a styled wedding shoot did not turn out as originally planned! At first the team filled their mood board with dark and brooding influences and rich shades of oxblood and cherry. As you can see, the end result was a feminine and romantic boho luxe wedding wonderland of lavender, blush and metallics.

The styled shoot embodies a sense of enchantment that captivates you with its luxe bohemian appeal married with a strong lavender palette – a true yet unpredictable match made in heaven. The team wanted to give the lavender colour palette a modern, chic and elegant appeal, which I think they achieved!

The contemporary touches of ivory and metallics against the pastel lavender shade, set amongst an enchanting lavender field, created just the right balance.

Adorn Invitations told us how they put together these amazing lavender boho luxe wedding ideas, which Sephory Photography captured so perfectly…

Luxury and Glamour

“Though the vibe and theme for the day was quite relaxed, we wanted to entice our ‘guests’ with luxury and glamour. We created several stationery styles for the shoot including lavish features like intricate laser cut panelling and gilded foiling. Our head digital designer used a relaxed scripted font for that boho-chic element.

“We wrapped gold kitchenware tightly with satin ribbon and scripted name holders for the boho luxe wedding look. However, our showstopper was definitely our embellished cow skull centrepiece!”

Beautiful and Delicious

“We had the most delectable spread of sweet treats for our outdoor reception. A favourite from the day were the breathtaking macarons in shades of lilac and lavender, garnished with gold flakes and sprigs of lavender. Summery berry tarts complemented the colours in the floral arrangements, and the purple toned drinks were as beautiful as they were delicious.”

Simple, Elegant Lake Como Wedding Inspiration

Inspired by minimalist fashion and elements of nature, Nienke van Denderen created this amazing destination wedding inspiration shoot on the banks of Lake Como, Italy. If you are thinking of getting married abroad, or having an elopement, then I’m sure a Lake Como wedding will be one of your top choices after seeing these ideas.

For the concept, Nienke and the team wanted to keep the styling simple, showing that sometimes less is more. In this shoot it’s all about the couple’s emotions.

I love the soft colour palette used, which works so well against the backdrop of the lake and mountainside. The bouquet of small thistles and eucalyptus looks so pretty against the bride’s stunning boho style Inmaculada Garcia wedding dress. The bride and groom have a real carefree style going on, particularly the groom is his tan suede jacket.

The relaxed, simple styling is all that’s needed against the breathtaking backdrop of Lake Como.

So, as I said, if you are dreaming of a lakeside elopement or wedding in the Italian countryside, how about a Lake Como wedding? Pure romance!

Minimalist Botanical Wedding Styling

This minimalist botanical wedding inspiration was styled by the hugely talented Amo Creative. Amo wanted to create styling to bring the outdoors in, and this beautiful concept certainly does that. I adore Amo’s pairing of greenery, one of the Pantone colours of the year, with crisp white and splashes gold. It’s very clean and minimalist, which is a big wedding trend right now.

Amo and the team used tropical leaves as the main focus of this minimalist botanical wedding shoot, and it looks fabulous. They used palm leaves in a large vase for the table centrepiece, as the table runner and also as cute place settings.

Palm Leaf Theme

An amazing tropical palm leaf backdrop created a real focal point in the room, and the palm leaf theme ran through the styling to the beautifully illustrated stationery too, tying the concept together.

The venue for this shoot was The Conservatory Franschhoek, South Africa. The botanical styling works brilliantly with the venue’s large windows, but would also look fabulous in most venues.

A 70’s Disco Themed Rock the Frock Shoot

I have something a little different and fun for you today. If you love the 70’s disco vibe then you will love this fun ‘Rock the Frock’ shoot. The concept of the shoot created by Karen, the owner of bridal boutique Rock the Frock, and Kerrie from Kerrie Mitchell Photography, was to create a visual delight with an awesome 70’s disco feel, and showcase some fabulous wedding dresses and shoes that match the style. Wait until you see the shoes; you will have complete shoe swoon!

The dresses showcased are sassy and cool, and really are the showstoppers of this shoot. I also love how the creative team transformed the boutique into a disco room using neon colours, an incredible iridescent backdrop (I need one of these in my life!) and, of course, disco balls.

A huge thank you to Karen and Kerrie for sharing this totally awesome Rock the Frock shoot, and I hope you enjoy this journey into disco heaven!

70’s Disco

“We wanted to capture the theme of 70’s disco but with two different looks that both contrasted and complemented each other. Our good friend, Kerrie Mitchell, did an incredible job and brought all our ideas to reality. The iridescent backdrop to the celestial feel images is a great juxtaposition against the bright, colourful images.
