A Touch of Tuscany

“A visit to Italy inspired me to create this ‘Touch of Tuscany’ look for the 2018 PapaKåta Autumn Open Weekend. I’ve added teal, a colour used in many ways, to give the look depth and decadence. I planned a stunning wedding this year in a PapaKåta Sperry Tent, working with the couple to create an elegant yet bold theme. We used teal in the stationery, copper in the tableware and paired it with tonal greys in the candles. The overall look was fresh and modern yet warm and inviting.

Bride and groom by Loch Melfort

For anyone who is thinking of having their wedding in the Scottish Highlands, we are sure that Amy and James’ wedding, photographed by Wee Beauty Photography, will make you want this location even more! Together with groomsmen in traditional Scottish groomswear and a bagpipe player, this wedding on the banks of Loch Melfort oozes Scottish charm.

This wedding is full of bright colours and beautiful decor, and check out the incredible styling in the tipis…

“We wanted the day to be fun and relaxed, with plenty of time outside to make the best of the stunning highland location. We also wanted to bring a touch of East Africa, where we currently live.

“We used recycled bottles for the table decorations, with amazing bright tropical flowers. For the bunting and favours (bags of handmade Scottish tablet made by my father) we used fabric from Kenya. The tipis were completely magical and the perfect setting.”
