Burgundy and Pink Floral Wedding Styling

I just love these show-stopping burgundy and pink floral wedding styling ideas. Created by floral designer Lori’s Flowers and beautifully photographed by Elizabeth Burgi Photography, these ideas would work well for a wedding in any season, but the burgundy tones make them particularly suited to a winter wedding. Shades of burgundy always look wonderfully dramatic, but when mixed with pops of bright pink they really come alive.

The idea behind this styled shoot was to inspire brides looking for beautiful ideas for wedding florals for their bouquet, table and venue. Lori used roses as the main focal flower in the bouquet and table arrangements. In shades of rich, velvety burgundy and fabulous bright fuchsia pink they look divine. Paler shades of dahlia, stocks, scabiosa, ranunculus, and dark green foliage fill the arrangements.

Of course, you can’t help but notice the bride’s beautiful wedding dress too. This stunning off-the shoulder, long sleeved dress with lace bodice has a beautiful tulle train and is a real head-turner! I don’t often see brides wearing tiaras any more, but the one the bride is wearing is incredible. The entwined gold almost looks branch-like, and encrusted in black and white jewels this unique piece really stands out.

This whole shoot is oh so pretty. Our thanks go to Elizabeth Burgi for sharing these beautiful pictures…

“When Lori’s Flowers asked if I wanted to do a mini styled shoot of a table top and bride with bouquet I was totally on board. I love Lori’s fresh but classic style with flowers.

“Lori set the table with gorgeous burgundy and pink flowers that would be perfect for a fall or winter wedding. The model wore a custom gown by Niquie, and the flirty lace and bold jewel toned flowers fit together beautifully.”

Elegant, Earthy Autumnal Wedding Styling

With a colour palette of white, terracotta, burnt orange, taupe and soft beige, this beautiful earthy wedding styling has a pretty autumnal feel. Taking inspiration from the changing seasons, wedding planner The Purple Chair created this shoot to show the beauty of autumn weddings and showcase the stunning wedding venue, Jumeirah Golf Estates in Dubai.

The styling comes to life against the venue’s stone walls and terracotta tiled floor. For the tablescape an abundance of taper candles in white, taupe and soft beige sit on soft white linen and a delicately draped tulle runner. The simple place settings add to this rustic, elegant look, with woven table mats and wooden plates teamed with glass chargers.

But it’s the autumnal florals which are key to the styling, adding dramatic explosions of colour. The striking hanging installation over the table, with copper coloured leaves and orchids, white and terracotta roses, and rustic twigs, creates a stunning focal point.

Then there’s the bride’s incredible coordinating bouquet. Tied loosely with soft peach, taupe and ivory ribbon, it looks amazing against her dress, a stunning long sleeved fit and flare style with intricate all-over beading and gathered tulle train. Worn with a pair of Valentino gold-studded strappy sandals, her look is elegant and romantic.

Wonderful rustic touches complete the styling, including beautiful textured paper stationery set with hand-drawn wreath design, and a three tier white wedding cake with terracotta coloured detail and lettering.

I just adore these pictures captured so perfectly by Lizelle Goussard Photography…

Romantic ‘Rouille’ Beach Wedding Styling

Rouille may not be a word you’ve come across before so, if not, let me enlighten you. It means ‘rust’ in French, and it sounds so much nicer in French than English, don’t you think? This rouille wedding shoot uses a colour palette including shades of orange, brown and beige to create such romantic styling.

Creative stylist and photographer Lizelle Goussard took inspiration from a famous quote as the foundation for this concept…

“My soul is full of longing for the secret of the sea, and the heart of the great ocean sends a thrilling pulse through me.” – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Lizelle explains, “The reason why I paired the rust colour with an ocean location is that things tend to rust when close to the ocean, and old items washed up onto the beach are usually full of rust.

As you’ll see, this styling would be perfect for an intimate beach wedding or elopement, but you could also recreate it on a greater scale for a larger affair.

Rustic Styling

The busy, rustic table styling using natural elements complements the scenery perfectly. Unstructured florals, candles, drift wood and old glass bottles sit in the centre of linen deliberately draped in an almost untidy manner, creating a rippled effect akin to waves breaking onto the shore. To complete the look, the place settings include rust coloured napkins, wooden table mats, and a sea shell to honour the location.

The bridal styling is just as beautiful, with two gowns specifically chosen to work with the colour scheme. The first includes stunning leaf and floral embellishments and a deep illusion neckline, and the second has hues of brown. The bride’s extra long veil gives a dramatic effect, and her fabulous free-form floral bouquet of peach, blush and white flowers loosely tied with rust-coloured ribbon complements both looks perfectly.

From the textured card used for the wedding stationery, to the rough-iced wedding cake with pops of rust detail, each element has been so carefully thought out. Our thanks go to Lizelle for sharing the beautiful pictures of this romantic rouille beach wedding styling…

Moroccan Inspired Bridal Shower Styling

Today’s inspiration comes from this beautiful Moroccan inspired bridal shower styling, photographed by Abbie Mae Photography. Shot in the grounds of The Addison Grove, the styling team led by Heather Lane Events wanted to recreate the feeling and culture of Morocco in their home state of Texas.

A luxury picnic style soiree like this would be a wonderful way to celebrate your upcoming nuptials, but I also wanted to share this shoot because I think there are lots of fabulous ideas you could use for an outdoor summer wedding too.

Moroccan Style

The rustic tablescape is beautifully styled with colourful Moroccan-style mismatched glassware, patterned china and dip-dyed napkins. I love the simple, minimal use of foliage down the centre of the table, weaving in and out of candles, glass votives and small flower arrangements. This sits on a macramé table runner, which brings pattern and texture to the set-up, as do the large cushions which also give a cosy feel. Of course, a low-level table may not be suitable for a wedding breakfast, but you could use this idea to create outdoor chill-out areas instead.

Another lovely idea which continues the Moroccan theme is the tea table. Topped with Moroccan teapot, tea glasses, mint tea bags and bottled iced tea, it’s an interesting and refreshing feature. I love the brass hostess trolley next to it too, beautifully styled with a lantern, pink globe and florals.

And the floral styling doesn’t end there. The bride-to-be’s magnificent bouquet is full of pink and peach blooms including roses and ranunculus, while her hens have gorgeous foliage hoops to carry. There’s also floral detail on the bride-to-be’s stunning wedding dress, which adorns the bodice, skirt and long illusion sleeves.

So, whether you’re looking for ideas for a bridal shower or outdoor summer wedding, I hope you love this Moroccan inspired styling as much as I do…

Modern Warehouse Wedding Styling in Green and Gold

Today I’m delighted to share this wonderful modern warehouse wedding styling, photographed by Emily Rose Photography. With green and gold as the colour palette, the creative team used patterns and textures to create a fabulous styling concept that adds such elegance to the industrial style backdrop of exposed brick walls and tall glass windows.

We’ve seen before how well metallics complement lush green foliage, and this winning combination is key to the styling. Gold lanterns and votives shine amongst the foliage table runner, while the gold patterned china gives a subtle nod to the theme. This even carries through to the incredible ceremony balloon arch, where gold balloons and green foliage add colour to the mostly white display.

I simply must mention the bride’s dress as well… wow! This fit and flare style dress by Lillian West with keyhole back is simply breathtaking, and its allover lace design ticks the pattern and texture boxes too!

So, whether your wedding is taking place in a warehouse style space, you want ideas for combining foliage and metallics, or you’re looking for wedding inspiration that’s modern yet classically elegant, immerse yourself in this fabulous modern warehouse wedding styling…

Modern Elegance

“I wanted this shoot to inspire my southern brides to think outside the box of country charm weddings and explore the idea of modern elegance. I envisioned dramatic light, deep greens, and gold accents, and our amazing team took my vision to the next level.
