Elegant, Relaxed Wedding Styling at Mt. Lowe Brewery

A wedding in a brewery… now that’s my kind of wedding! When Cindy of Ink and Rose Events sent me the pictures of this awesome wedding inspiration I fell in love with styling. The backdrop of Mt. Lowe Brewery in California is so cool, with an abundance of tin cladding, rows upon rows of Edison lights, central bar area and large rustic tables and stools.

The table styling looks amazing. Simple tin chargers are laid with a white napkin with gold napkin holder and a personalised title place name. For the table flowers, rustic wooden table caddies filled with dainty florals and ferns give an almost woodland look.

The standout feature of this wedding inspiration though is the astonishing square ombre wedding cake. It looks amazing and complements the surroundings wonderfully, and where else would you display a wedding cake in a brewery than on top of a barrel?

This whole styling concept is elegant and relaxed, including the bride and groom. The bride looks super chic in her sparkling wedding dress teamed with a pair of glitzy Jimmy Choos, and the groom looks fab in his light grey suit, white shirt and pale blue bow tie, which coordinates beautifully with the blue flowers in the bride’s incredible bouquet.

So grab a cuppa (or a beer) and enjoy these wedding styling ideas captured by Meghan Wiesman Photography. Cheers!

Industrial Feel

“Mt. Lowe Brewery is a place my husband and I frequent regularly since A: we love beer, and B: it’s 10 minutes away from our home. It’s a fun environment with tons of games, we can bring our pups, and every night you can find a different type of food truck. You’ll find taco trucks, barbecue, and even Hot Dog on a Stick on certain nights. They also host bingo, trivia nights, paint nights and yoga. Such a fun place!

“We were sitting there one day having a beer and I was imaging a wedding there. I pictured an elegant yet very relaxed wedding with lots of beautiful greens, ivories and gold, low lighting and candlelight. Inspired by the industrial feel that the beer vats were giving I could picture a tad of vintage in there as well. At first I was thinking boho, but no way; this place needed a touch of elegance with it’s fun environment.

“I always have weddings on the brain (can you tell?), so I asked the bartender about it and he told me they have never hosted a wedding. From there, I contact the HR and events manager and we immediately clicked and collaborated. They had been been talking about meeting with a planner to host something and I went and knocked on their door. They want to get into hosting weddings and I was their opportunity for a photo shoot.”

‘Concrete Opulence’ Industrial Wedding Styling

With a wintery feel throughout, this ‘Concrete Opulence’ styled wedding shoot is moody and edgy. Inspired by the sparkling ‘Gaia’ wedding dress by Brooke Tyson Ritual, this shoot styled by Elizabeth Jean Weddings combines industrial grit with opulent accents.

The dark, ambient styling has a romantic feel with a modern twist. With a very minimalist vibe, it focuses on the florals and wedding dress, so there are no elaborate tablescapes needed. A simple set up of beautiful dark tableware, rustic napkins and amazing florals adorn the tables, with THE most incredible rose gold anthuriums amongst the lush foliage of the displays.

The raw concrete surroundings of the venue allow the ‘Gaia’ wedding dress to glimmer and shine. Handcrafted with evening weddings under lights or sparkling in the sunshine in mind, it’s intricately beaded and sequinned. With a beautifully relaxed fit and front opening, this versatile dress can also turn into a robe with the perfect size train trailing behind. Full bell sleeves with scalloped detailing add to the luxurious feel.

I really am so in love with this wedding dress. In fact, I’m in love with this whole shoot and its dark hues and moody vibe. These pictures taken by the talented Brooke and Gina of The Virtue say it all…

Modern Foliage and Copper Wedding Styling

Foliage and copper are two of my absolute favourite wedding styling concepts, and fill me with such joy when teamed together! They are both still massive wedding trends that are showing no signs of disappearing for 2019. Led by Emily Andrew Events, the creative team for this shoot wanted to put a different spin on a foliage and copper wedding theme and show some fresh inspiration to brides. This warm, inviting, modern and romantic styling shows how to incorporate these two elements in a stylish, timeless way.

Enjoy these oh-so-elegant styling ideas, captured beautifully by Tatum Reid Photography…

Foliage Garland and Copper Buckets

“I styled two tablescapes for our sweetheart table. The first included a foliage garland of eucalyptus, sprigs of gypsophila sprayed copper and fronds of fern for texture. I then peppered this with lots of little tea lights and votives in copper and glass. Glass bottles filled with sprigs of foliage holding tall white tapered candles added a finishing touch to the garland.

“The place settings featured glass sheet menus written in copper ink, copper pipe place names and copper cutlery. Earthenware plates added an edgy tone to the table, and green napkins and ribbons around the cutlery finished each setting.

Serene Wedding Inspiration at Clissold House

Natural elegance, creative florals and a timeless London backdrop inspired today’s magnificent styled shoot. Beautiful flowers, a soft colour palette and a chic rustic vibe – all of my favourite things rolled into one. Add fabulous creative design and an 18th century mansion venue and I’m sold!

To create this serene wedding inspiration, Fleur and Fig added such alluring elements and attention to detail. The table design is simply splendid. Laid upon the fabulous wooden table, each place setting is simple yet elegant with white china, rustic yet modern menu cards, a soft grey napkin and rustic wooden handled cutlery. An abundance of taper candles in a mix of pink, purple and white help to create a romantic look.

I am a huge flower lover, and when I saw the amazing florals created for this shoot I did swoon rather a lot, and you’ll see why!

Everything about this shoot is charmingly beautiful, including the simple yet elegant white, two tier wedding cake with pretty lace detail. Oh and wait until you see the sweet treats… they are some of the cutest delights I have seen!

I am in awe of the bridal styling too. The bride’s wedding dress, ‘Charlotte’ by Vicky Rowe, is one of my favourite dresses of the season. The high neck, teardrop open back and full skirt with lace like beading detail and smoky Swarovski crystals create such a head-turning wedding dress. It complements a city wedding perfectly, yet stays in keeping with the magnificent backdrop of Clissold House.

This styled wedding shoot is romance personified – I could go on all day about the details! So, without further ado, enjoy these incredible pictures, captured by Amanda Karen Photography…

Timeless Elegance

“Clissold House in vibrant Hackney, London provided the elegant backdrop for this editorial shoot. The autumnal weather and wooden interiors inspired the transitional colour palette of forest green contrasted with soft blush and deep berry tones and delicate touches of gold. Fleur and Fig based their design around timeless elegance with a slight nod to rustic chic.

Blue and Copper Winter Wedding Inspiration

Today I’m injecting some winter vibes with this dazzling blue and copper winter wedding inspiration shoot, styled by Myrtle Floral Design and Styling and captured by Werner J Photography.

The colour palette of blue and copper, combined with trendy watercolour, works so well for a winter wedding or elopement. With a unique design and gorgeous copper calligraphy text, the watercolour wedding stationery sets the tone for what’s to come.

The shoot is set within the incredible Hertford Country Hotel in South Africa. The white walls of the room add a pure base for the styling and really make the decor stand out.

Rustic table styling gives a warming feeling. Gorgeous blue velvet and white tulle table runners, wooden chargers, geometric napkins and dark ceramic tableware sit upon the natural wooden table. Foliage drapes elegantly onto the table amongst modern copper candlestick holders and wine coolers, and the copper bistro chairs are a fantastic touch to complete the styling.

The bridesmaids look stunning in blush and copper sparkly dresses that complement the bride’s stunning wedding dress with sexy lace top and floaty tulle skirt. In contrast, the groom’s casual attire of camel coloured chinos with a blue checked jacket is very relaxed, but works perfectly.

This is one very cool styled shoot, showcasing a modern take on a winter wedding. I know you will love these ideas as much as I do…

Elegance and Warmth

“For this styled shoot we wanted to create an intimate and cosy wedding, focusing on comfort while still portraying elegance and warmth.

“We chose Hertford Country Hotel as the backdrop for a very intimate table setting with only the closest of friends sharing a feast. When deciding on colours we wanted to incorporate dark blues, blacks and copper, and the all white venue gave us a blank canvas to add the dark and cosy colours we wanted.
