Tropical Spring – Cerise Pink and Green Wedding Styling

We are so in love with these fun, contemporary wedding styling ideas. The cerise pink and apple green colour palette is perfect for this ‘Tropical Spring’ shoot.

Jenny Wren Events has really created something fabulous here; wedding styling that’s bold, vibrant and fun. The tall vases of apples, apple place settings, fun palm trees, feather buttonholes, ribbon ceremony backdrop and the amazing wedding cake.

A Touch of Fun

“I loved planning the styling for this shoot at the picturesque, multi-award winning Carbis Bay Hotel and Spa. Situated in its own private estate and gardens overlooking the white sands of Carbis Bay Beach, the style and location of the venue lent itself to a contemporary styled shoot, with a touch of fun.

Still Nature Styled Wedding Shoot

We love the calmness that this styled shoot portrays. The natural elements of the beautiful woodland set the scene for this wonderful ‘Still Nature’ wedding inspiration.

With the simply yet chic styling One Stylish Day has shown that having an outdoor wedding can be calm, relaxing and ‘with nature’, and doesn’t have to include lots of props and styling details. Louise used natural elements that complemented that surroundings, minimal embellishments for the tablescape and an abundance of candles to give a warming, cosy feel in the forest.

Nicola Dixon Photography captured the beauty of this Still Nature wedding inspiration styled shoot and we are delighted to share the incredible pictures.

Natural Elements and Textures

“This shoot is a fresh take on an outdoor wedding, inspired by simple Scandi living. There’s a sense of oneness with the wild, and a calm, comfortable appreciation of nature.

“The woodland setting is undisturbed by a tablescape that feels like it belongs, and natural elements and textures add a quiet vitality to the scene. An undone quality runs through this scheme; dripping candles, casually laid linens and twiggy floral arrangements.”

Dramatic, Natural Backdrop

“Collections of logs and tree stumps work to create an outdoor ‘room’, and pillar candles of differing sizes provide the ambience. Garlands creep around trees as if they are growing there, and the repetition of vertical tree trunks into the distance creates a dramatic, natural backdrop.

“White stationery has hewn edges and perfectly placed black serif typography.”

“Spring has yet to reach the forest, and the colour palette reflects this stillness. White and warm grey reflects a sunless sky, and soft, dull metallic finishes reflect the surroundings. Soft pinks and deep reds lift the dark forest green, woody browns and bronzes.”

Wabi-Sabi Wedding Inspiration

The latest buzzword is wabi-sabi, the Japanese art of appreciating beauty in the ‘naturally imperfect world’. Today we have a fabulous wabi-sabi inspired styled wedding shoot that really shows that not everything in life, and in weddings, has to be perfect. Sometimes imperfections can be just as beautiful.

The incredibly talented Siobhan from Siobhan H Photography had an amazing concept, and Always Andri has styled such a beautiful wedding inspiration shoot using natural elements and items that are ‘imperfect’. We love the wedding cake with its obvious cracks, the flowers that are wild and free, and the bride’s hairstyle with it’s loose, escaping strands.

Sometimes people can get caught up in wedding planning, trying to make sure that everything is perfect and neat. Maybe it doesn’t have to be. Maybe we should all take inspiration from this ancient Japanese art and see the world for what it really is, not what we ‘think’ it should look like.

Be free, be wild, be imperfect!

Huge thanks to the very talented team who helped Andri bring her vision of a wabi-sabi inspired wedding to life, and to Siobhan H Photography for these fabulous pictures.

Celebrating Imperfections

“Nature and the Japanese aesthetic of wabi-sabi inspired this wedding shoot. Wabi-sabi is about appreciating the beauty in everything around us. It celebrates the imperfections and the transient nature of life, and I really wanted to bring those elements to the shoot.”

Bright and colourful elopement table flowers and decor

Bright, Colourful Elopement Inspiration

If you are looking to get married but don’t want a ‘big wedding’, then how about an elopement? You will see from this fabulous colourful elopement inspiration shoot that you can still have a beautifully styled wedding, and it’s the perfect way to say “I do” to the person you love without having to plan a big day and have lots of people with you, if that’s not your thing.

This elopement inspiration shoot has been beautifully styled with an amazing array of colour. The flowers in bright yellow, orange, pink and green are one of our favourite summer colour pallets.

Santa Barbara is the setting for this inspirational shoot and where the elopement ‘story’ is told: The wedding at the Courthouse, sunset toast on the beach, a walk around town as the new Mr and Mrs, and then dinner and cake for two in the romantic courtyard. How perfect does this sound?

We adore the styling of this beautiful shoot planned by Bluebird Productions, and Lacie Hansen has really captured the story in her stunning pictures. Enjoy!

Intimate Elopement

“Inspired by the colours of the American Riviera, a fabulous group of vendors crafted this perfectly intimate elopement.

Wedding Grazing Station Ideas

Wedding food has changed so much over the last few years. Of course, the traditional wedding breakfast will always play a big part, but if you are having a more relaxed wedding and are not going for the traditional sit down meal, then there are plenty of amazing ideas for really cool food to wow your wedding guests. Today we have some amazing inspirational ideas for a different type of wedding catering. We are not talking about hog roasts, barbecues or buffets, oh no… something much more delightful. We are talking about the incredible wedding grazing station.

Grazing stations are a fairly new concept for UK weddings but are already a really hot trend. Rather than having a sit down meal and food served directly to your guests, the grazing station is all about your guests helping themselves to delectable treats. This is a great way to cater for guests if you are looking to create a wonderful relaxed wedding.

Doughnut wall

The amazingly talented team behind this wedding grazing station inspiration shoot not only created the most delicious looking treats, but each ‘station’ is styled too. They feature sweet treats including individual desserts, a cool ice cream bar, the most splendid doughnut wall, and a fabulous savoury table with cheeses, breads and canapés.

The styling of each station is so pretty (just look at the flowers) and is very fitting with each type of food. Having a grazing station (or even stations) that offers yummy treats and is beautifully created will not only wow your guests but will be a real visual centrepiece too.

Just how darn cool are these wedding grazing station ideas, fabulously photographed by Marianne Taylor Photography…

Grazing Station Themes to Reflect the Seasons

“I originally approached Kalm Kitchen at the beginning of last year to ask if they fancied collaborating. Jen (the creative director from Kalm Kitchen) and I are totally on the same wavelength. We get all giddy when we get together to discuss creative ideas involving flowers and food. It’s our guilty pleasure!

“Marianne’s photography is just gorgeous and so creative, so we wanted her to capture the grazing stations in all their glory.

“The plan was to create four different wedding grazing station themes to reflect the different seasons. We wanted to experiment with colours, textures and new designs (from the flowers, food and photography perspective), creating new inspiration for potential clients.”

Spring/Summer

“I love texture and organic natural surroundings, so that’s where the spring/summer tree idea came from. I wanted to create something big and ‘wow’ in the middle of the table; a real focal statement point! The spring flowers growing up from the table creates a natural, magical talking point amongst guests, and complemented the delicate and colourful desserts by Kalm Kitchen.”

Ice Cream Bar

“The ice cream bar and doughnut wall station were Kalm Kitchen’s idea, I just gave my opinion on colours and texture. I thought it would be nice to keep the scientific, clinical look of the ice cream bar by using just clean glass and white flowers.”
