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.

A Copper Themed Wedding at Coworth Park

Cindy and Thomas’ beautiful copper themed wedding took place at the stunning Coworth Park in Ascot. I’m sure many brides-to-be dream of a wedding venue with beautiful gardens, and Cindy and Thomas made the most of the fabulous grounds with an intimate outdoor ceremony.

As you’ll know, copper is a big wedding trend. The copper styling Cindy and Thomas created works so well with the backdrop of the venue.

They used cute copper wire letters of their initials and copper painted picture frames to style their guest book table. Their wedding cake included a copper tier, they placed a copper favour box on every other ceremony chair, and their place names were a gorgeous copper bar tied delicately to the menu card. Everything was copper… who knew you can get photo booth props in copper too? Even the inside of Cindy’s gorgeous Ted Baker wedding shoes were copper – I have serious shoe envy!

Cindy and Thomas really thought about their styling details and made sure that every little detail was just so. I hope you enjoy this magnificent wedding, captured by Masha Unwerth, and get loads of inspiration for styling your own copper themed wedding.

Two Weddings

“Thomas and I met 10 years ago when we were both working in the same hotel. I had just started and he was very persistent in getting me to go out for a date with him… I finally agreed and we have been together ever since!

“Thomas is French so we ended up having two weddings, not even a week apart. Our immediate French family travelled to the UK on the Monday for our wedding at Coworth, and then we travelled to France with my family to do it all over again on the Saturday with the rest of our French family and friends.”

A Marble, Copper and Pink Himalayan Salt Styled Wedding

If you’ve never seen or even heard of pink Himalayan salt before now then you are in for a real treat, as this awesome wedding if full of it. Erica and Kevin wowed their guests with wedding styling which included modern marble, copper and pink Himalayan salt details. As soon as I saw the beautiful pictures by Abby Grace Photography I fell in love with this styling.

I’m going to hold my hands up and say I have never seen pink Himalayan Salt before now, but quite frankly it’s incredible. It’s claimed the rose quartz-hued ancient salt crystals have great health benefits, and when made into decorative items it is something very special.

Modern Details

Erica and Kevin used beautiful pink Himalayan salt for an amazing escort card display of shot glasses, candle votives and as the plate chargers at their place settings on the top table. What a wonderful item to keep as a wedding memento.

They used marble patterns to contrast the modern rose quartz hues, including in their fabulous two tier wedding cake, table runners, invitations and menu cards. There are dazzling pops of copper throughout the styling too, with gorgeous modern cutlery, sparkling candle votives and fabulous tall structures that play host to spectacular floral displays that bring the room to life.

I adore the flowers used in this wedding. Erica’s bridal bouquet is full to the brim with roses, peonies, astilbes, dahlias, and black ball cornflowers. And it’s not often you see a bride and groom wearing matching shoes! Erica and Kevin both wore Stubbs and Wootton smoking loafers. Customised with a nod to their political views, each had their respective parties on the top!

This black tie celebration combines creativity and the most elegant Washington backdrop. Abby Grace’s pictures of Erica and Kevin’s wedding are a delight, and I hope you love them as much as I do.

Copper and Wood Urban Wedding Inspiration

Copper, wood, beautiful florals and a whole lot of pretty – tick! This wedding inspiration shoot set in Halifax, Nova Scotia, shows how you can combine copper and wood for a really cool urban wedding styling look.

This styling is perfect for a warehouse or urban loft wedding venue, or indeed any venue with a blank canvas for you to style. The creative team worked their magic to create a plethora of awesome wedding styling ideas that are simple and easy to recreate for your own big day.

The tablescape takes centre stage for this theme. Chunky wooden tables are laid with chic white square plates with copper coloured napkins and a copper geometric menu on top, ornate copper cutlery, votives and plant holders. This simple design works so well and creates a modern urban look, finished perfectly with clear ghost chairs at each place setting.

The florals are so beautiful. I especially love the bridal bouquet with white chrysanthemums, white and peach roses and white lilac surrounded by pretty eucalyptus. Not only are the colours beautiful together, it must smell divine!

There are many copper geometric details incorporated into this styling; from the menu cards and cute heart on the wedding invitation and place name cards, to the glass box for the cards and the copper wire shapes that accentuate the florals.

The cool two-tier wedding cake follows the theme too, with copper leaf around the top. I love the rosemary sprigs around the bottom, giving a nod to its rustic charm.

There are so many amazing details in this shoot. I hope you enjoy looking through these fabulous pictures by La Vie In Pictures.

Urban Feel

“The inspiration for our shoot came after Kiss The Bride opened a new location in Halifax, Nova Scotia. We wanted to highlight the beauty of Downtown Halifax. As it’s such a diverse and fantastic city the possibilities for a beautiful wedding are endless.

“We wanted to keep an urban feel to the shoot, so used copper, wood and brick to achieve this. The floral designs played off these materials, and yes, that is a real artichoke in the bridal bouquet! Our models, a real married couple, were celebrating their fifth wedding anniversary, so being part of the shoot was a real treat for them.”

Opulent Blush, Copper and Gold Wedding Styling

Today’s beautiful wedding inspiration shoot took place at the incredible Duke of Cornwall Hotel in Plymouth. The shoot concept was opulent blush, copper and gold wedding styling, a stunning colour combination.

Copper and gold together make such a great colour palette for a wedding, in any season. The copper gives a pop of colour and the gold a luxe feel. The creative team also used navy and blush pink to add depth to the styling, and together with the copper and gold this shoot has a wonderful luxurious feel.

If you’re looking for some sparkling styling ideas then you will love the tablescapes. Fabulous sequin tablecloths, beautiful floral arrangements and candelabras adorn each table, and the navy sashes on the chairs complement the rose gold tablecloths perfectly. The top table has an array of small copper vases, each filled with luscious blooms and foliage, and even the beautiful wedding cake has a touch of sparkle, with gold leaves.

The bride and groom look fabulous, and I particularly love the wedding dress with soft tulle shoulder drapes and elegant tulle skirt. The bride’s hair and make-up is beautiful too. I’m all for natural bridal make-up but it’s nice to see a bride who can carry off a pop of colour. Finally, if you’re looking for wedding hair ideas, the bride’s updo is amazing. You’ll definitely want to show this to your hair stylist!

These beautiful pictures by Mimosa Photography showcase the fabulous blush, copper and gold wedding styling ideas perfectly, and of course The Duke of Cornwall Hotel, a stunning wedding venue which oozes charm and history.
