Romantic and Elegant Yellow Wedding Styling

When you think of the colour yellow, what emotions does it evoke? For me it brings feelings of summer, the warm sun, soft sand and happiness. That’s exactly why I love this styling concept; quite simply, it makes me happy! You might think that yellow wedding styling could be too bold, but when it’s a soft, delicate shade, yellow can be understated, romantic and elegant.

When you look at the beautiful ideas in this shoot, captured by Jeremy Chou Photography, I’m sure you will fall in love with the idea of using yellow in your wedding styling. This concept is minimal, simplistic, and offers such romantic vibes.

The floral designs are where the pop of subtle yellow wedding flowers make an incredible impact. Paired with beautiful green foliage and soft blush the yellow comes to life, and the wild looking, unstructured bouquet mirrors the design of the table arrangements.

The bridal style emulates the romantic styling of the tablescape too. These dresses! There are two wedding dresses worn in this shoot, and both are so gorgeous and complement the styling perfectly, especially the blush floral design (this is one of my favourite wedding dresses I’ve featured recently).

From elegant cakes and treats to simple place settings, everything about this shoot screams romance, which is, of course, exactly what a wedding is all about!

Elegantly Subdued

“We find from experience that yellow excites a warm and agreeable impression… The eye is gladdened, the heart expanded and cheered, a glow seems at once to breathe toward us.” – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

“Yellow exudes joy, happiness and cheer, but is an often underutilised colour in fine art wedding design. We drew inspiration for this bridal session from the blush tulle, rose gold sequins and yellow appliquĂ© flowers on an exceptionally designed Emily Riggs gown. The desire was to show how the boldest, sunniest colour can be elegantly subdued.

Dark and Dramatic Wedding Inspiration at Kilworth House

The general trend for wedding styling tends to be light or bright colours, so I love it when a shoot arrives in my inbox that’s dark and offers something different. That’s exactly why I love the pictures of this dark and dramatic wedding inspiration at Kilworth House in Leicestershire.

The creative team wanted to show couples alternatives to pretty pinks and rose gold, and the paler shades of weddings. If you are one of those couples looking for something more alternative then you will love this! With dark hues, dim lighting and the timeless, elegant backdrop of Kilworth House, this dark and dramatic wedding styling comes alive.

Taking inspiration from TV dramas The Crown and Victoria, the talented team used styling elements in keeping with that era. The tablescape with dark blue table linen, gold chargers, cutlery and candlestick holders, and hand lettering table numbers and menu cards, looks moody yet inviting. The dark green foliage table runner and single-stem spring flowers finish off the simple and elegant look beautifully.

I love the watercolour trend, so I especially love the stationery suite with its elegant font and splashes of blue watercolour. White Cottage Weddings also used a cute drawing of Kilworth House on the envelope liner (I do love an envelope liner!).

Another love of mine is gold leaf, so I adore the wedding cake. A pop of gold leaf running down the tiers of the cake brings the dark blue shade to life, and this styling carries over to the cake pops and macarons.

If you’re looking for a bridal style from a bygone era, then I’m sure this bride’s style will wow you just like it did me. The fabulous wedding dress designer Eliza Jane Howell kindly lent the team a selection of wedding dresses for the shoot. Each dress looks fabulous with the dark styling concept and fits perfectly with the era. Even the name of the dress collection, ‘The Leading Lady’, gives a nod to the styling. The groom also looks pretty dapper, wearing smart suits from Stephen Bishop Suiting, one of The Wedding Community’s very own groomswear experts.

I have such passion for these wedding ideas in dark, dramatic hues of blue with pops of gold. Rubie Love Photography had the wonderful job of capturing the shoot, and I hope you love it too…

Romantic Peach Wedding Styling Ideas

I have a whole lot of pretty for you today on The Wedding Community with these romantic peach wedding styling ideas. Pinterest is awash with inspiring images of beautiful peach wedding ideas, but as the idea behind this shoot came from a painting, these ideas are so unique that you probably won’t find anything with such splendour. Throw in the backdrop of Beverly Hills and you know this is going to be special!

Peach is such an adorable colour for a wedding, especially in spring or summer. Blended with inspiration from the historic painting ‘The Birth of Venus’ by Sandro Botticelli, you get something really special. Shawna Yamamoto and Hylah White’s design aesthetic is so perfect, with every detail beautifully curated.

Soft peach and lush green florals take centre stage, and I adore the bride’s large, untamed bridal bouquet, brimming with soft delicate peach blooms and gorgeous foliage. The elegant, graceful floral designs are such statement pieces.

The beautiful textured china, rose gold cutlery and rose gold rimmed glassware are key to creating a rich, elegant table setting. Of course, peaches, along with other fruit, also feature, and give a nod to the sensuality of Venus herself. Even the wedding stationery has a peach envelope liner.

The bride’s styling is sensational and her wedding dress works perfectly with this romantic styling concept. And wait until you see her shoes… oh my! A pair of Sophia Webster silver high heeled beauties with butterfly wings!

I’m a sucker for soft peach styling so I absolutely adore these images by Koman Photography, and hope you do too.

Breathtaking, Ethereal Photos

“The inspiration for this shoot came from an old Italian Villa, and we added a Grecian vibe. The Four Seasons in Beverly Hills was the perfect backdrop to create some breathtaking, ethereal photos.

“The decor and old Italian villas inspired the invitation suite, with a nod to classic design with soft, modern finishes. The layered invitation included an ornate old world Italian crest and a handmade peach ribbon wrap treatment, and the envelope liner’s vintage peach illustration gave an unexpected pop of colour.” – Hylah White Special Events

Long wedding table with prediction of the royal wedding cake

Predicting Prince Harry and Meghan’s Royal Wedding Cake

I’m sure you can imagine just how excited I am about the Royal Wedding tomorrow! I’m going to be up super-early so I can start to share the day with you as it unfolds. Today we are getting into the spirit by featuring this amazing royal wedding cake inspiration from Michelle of La Belle Cake Company.

Michelle is just as excited as I am, and created the most incredible wedding cake that is fit for a royal wedding. To showcase her creation, she worked with a team of suppliers to arrange an inspirational shoot which shows just how amazing the cake is…

“Since the announcement of Meghan Markle and HRH Prince Harry’s engagement there was only one thing on our mind at La Belle Cake Company – the royal wedding cake.

“When the Ideal Home Show asked me to create my expert prediction for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding cake I jumped at the chance. When creating my design I took inspiration from Harry and Meghan’s wedding reception venue – St George’s Hall at Windsor Castle. Such a grand venue requires a grand cake – something that won’t get lost and have to fight for attention.”

1920s Art Deco Wedding Styling at The Duke

We’ve featured a number of fabulous wedding inspiration shoots at Duke of Cornwall Hotel but this art deco one is my favourite so far. The Duke is such a grand hotel, so the art deco concept works so well. These wedding styling ideas are wonderful inspiration for couples marrying at The Duke or any other hotel with such style and grandeur.

The creative team really made the most of every aspect of the hotel to showcase how the art deco look could work for you. The styling has has a modern, trendy edge, and a lot of the current trends in the wedding world have been cleverly incorporated. A big wedding trend is to have a cocktail bar for a cocktail hour (very 1920s!), and I love the globe drinks trolley, signed with a funky art deco type-style printed menu and a cool ‘trust me you can dance’ chalkboard sign. Of course, no 1920s drinks area would be complete without a gramophone!

If you’re looking for bridal style with a nod to the 1920s then you’ll love the bride’s look. She wears a gorgeous, classic cut vintage style dress with a beautiful feather headband, which gives the look a touch of flapper style.

Everything about this art deco inspired wedding styling at The Duke really is fabulous, just like the era itself. Enjoy these wonderful pictures by UpArt Photography.

An Element of Art Deco

“The history behind the hotel has always fascinated me, and I love the fact it has seen many different styles and eras since opening in 1863. This shoot needed to be in keeping with age of the hotel and its history, so we decided to reflect the 1920s with an element of art deco.” – Agata, UpArt Photography
