Botanical Inspired Wedding Styling at Fulham Palace

Fulham Palace is the perfect backdrop for these dreamy botanical inspired wedding styling ideas. Adorned in delightful wisteria at the time of the shoot, this stunning venue looks even more beautiful.

For me, flowers bring a wedding to life, and these floral ideas combined with the grandeur inside Fulham Palace create the most incredible styling. The pièce de résistance is the chuppah canopy created with gorgeous botanical greens mixed with pops of pink and peach.

With botanical elegance in mind, the stationery set oozes simplistic flair, using green watercolour and contemporary yet elegant calligraphy. The beautiful wedding cake continues the floral theme, and its four tiers of gold leaf and floral decoupage also give a nod to the splendour of Fulham Palace.

For the bridal styling, two gorgeous Katya Katya wedding dresses feature. The first is a romantic ball gown with sheer lace sleeves and keyhole back, the second a vintage inspired sheath silhouette capped sleeve dress. Both include floral detailing and work perfectly with the overall styling concept. Oh, and prepare to swoon over the bride’s fabulous gold glitter bow shoes by Charlotte Mills.

Heavily Botanical

“For some time I had ideas whizzing through my head to create a sumptuous, heavily botanical inspired wedding shoot with elements of Palm Springs and Waterhouse. I wanted our venue set-up and bride to look as though they came out of a Millais/Waterhouse scene, and dropped in Palm Springs, California.

“I hand-picked a team of luxury, fine-art wedding professionals who truly get the awesomeness involved with weddings. Together we wanted to capture the feelings and emotions of the steps leading up to the wedding. These included the build up to the ceremony, touching on the kiddushin (the first two stages of the Jewish wedding process), and the veiling of the bride. We also had the most stunning chuppah of magenta and peach peonies, jasmine, café au lait dahlias, vuvuzela roses and eucalyptus nicholii. We used a palette of botanical deep greens mixed with dirty vintage blush and peach, hints of magenta and shocks of luxe gold.”

Pink and White Magnolia Spring Wedding Styling

I’m so excited to inspire you with this exquisite shoot, photographed by Allen Tsai Photography. When I think about single blooming branches I usually imagine cherry blossom, but this shoot is all about beautiful magnolia. The serene nature of these pink and white magnolia spring wedding styling ideas really wows.

The concept is romantic yet contemporary, and balances modern elements with effortless style. It would look stunning for weddings in spring to summer when the magnolia tree is in full bloom.

The pink and white blossom of this particular magnolia provides a pastel colour palette along with romantic elegance. Simple styling lets the magnolia take centre stage, with just a few other key styling elements added including the fabulous cake and the incredible stationery.

The bride’s dress looks like it’s been made specifically to fit the concept, but actually this is the stunning Alexandra Grecco ‘Wilder’ wedding dress from The Magic Hour collection. With its sheer bodice and sleeves and embroidered floral appliqué design that resemble tattoos, this is one of my all time favourite wedding dresses, so I was so excited to see it feature.

So, if you’re drawn to the idea of using a single type of blooming branch then I’m sure these gorgeous ideas will make you add the serene magnolia to your list!

Elegance and Refinement

“When Callista approached me with the design idea of using a single type of blooming branch I jumped at the idea! Magnolia are large, stately flowers, but also carry an air of elegance and refinement, and when used alone their beautiful shape and subtle colour variations shine.

“To show magnolias at their best we designed both low and high centrepieces – some with open flowers and some with buds. The bridal bouquet echoed this design, finished with a soft, silk ribbon bow.” – Gather Design Company

Living Coral and Gold Wedding Table Styling

Living coral is one of my favourite recent Pantone Colours of the Year because of its vibrancy and versatility. It’s a fresh take on a citrusy hue that is just perfect to add a pop of colour to your wedding styling. There are so many different shades of coral, from soft blush hues to vibrant pinky shades. These living coral and gold wedding table styling ideas, planned by the hugely talented Luxe by Minihaha & Co, use an eclectic mix of coral shades which show how well soft and vibrant hues can work together.

This romantic and glamorous concept is especially in tune with spring and summer nuptials. Whether you are choosing an indoor UK venue or enjoying a warmer climate for an outdoor wedding, living coral will bring your wedding to life.

The tablescape uses rustic wooden tables as the base, delicate light grey tulle for the central table runner, gold rimmed chargers, tall taper candles and an abundance of pretty blooms in coral shades. These floral arrangements form the focal point of this beautifully crafted table decor.

For this shoot the creative team included delicate sweet treats, from petal detail iced doughnuts to fruit-topped mini meringues, individual tiered cakes to the showstopping wedding cake – three tiers of pure gorgeousness!

By using both outdoor and indoor settings Minihaha and her team show just how versatile these living coral and gold wedding table styling ideas are. Anna Beth Photos has captured these timeless, bright and oh so joyful styling ideas so wonderfully. Hooray for a pop of colour!

Glamorous and Opulent

“I recently planned and styled this Living Coral inspired wedding shoot with a team of talented industry creatives. My design goal was to merge my love for modern French romance with an appreciation of high fashion. By tying in subtle French inspiration and natural styling I wanted to bring glamour to the world of weddings.

“For spectacle and fabulosity we used Living Coral and a hint of gold for our colour palette, with metallics as an added touch to create something awe-inspiring for brides to be.

“For the venue, I knew instantly there was no other choice than Sandburn Hall. They have stunning gardens and the property is full of meticulous details that I cherish as a planner and stylist. They played perfectly into the inspiration for the shoot.

“Weddings are about personalisation and creativity conflated, and a glamorous and opulent tablescape complemented the venue seamlessly. We set up the beautiful outdoor tablescape as a way to showcase a brunch type of intimate wedding, as well as a gorgeous indoor layout.”

Pink and Gold Dessert Table Inspiration

If you’re a dessert lover then today you’re in for a real treat, as I share these beautiful pink and gold dessert table ideas.

Dessert tables have been very popular at weddings for quite a few years now. Not only are they a way of providing your nearest and dearest with delicious sweet treats, they’re also a great way to create a showstopping display. Beautifully captured by L’Estelle Photography, these gorgeous ideas by Table and Company have a real wow factor.

They styled the table with desserts and florals in summery pink shades to create a romantic garden vibe. The delicately crafted desserts look divine, from the cute meringue kisses and macarons to the strawberry mousse cups and individual wedding cakes. The impressive suspended wedding cake, reminiscent of a children’s garden swing, gives a lovely nod to the garden feel.

Just imagine your guests faces if they walked into the room to see this incredible delight…

Sophisticated and Elegant

“Table and Company’s aim for this dessert table was to evoke a romantic garden feeling. We used sophisticated flowers including a mix of different types of pink roses, Phalaenopsis orchids and Bells of Ireland for a touch of green.

“The desserts were all made to suit the overall theme… a delicious selection of strawberry mousse cups, churros cups with dulce de leche, delicate pavlova with fresh cream and fruit toppings, meringue kisses, shortbread cookies and French macarons, all elegantly displayed on gold cake stands.

“We used display stands in a simple gold theme to create a neutral background for all the flowers and desserts.”

Boho Beach Elopement Styling in Sardinia

When thinking of destinations for an elopement or intimate wedding abroad I imagine there are few places more beautiful than Sardinia. This Italian island with picturesque mountain views and rocky coasts has stunning beaches regarded as some of the finest in the world. And it’s on one of these beaches, La Pelosa in Stintino, that this beautiful boho elopement shoot took place.

As you’d expect with a beach elopement the details are simple, with the stunning flowers one of the few styling elements. The table blooms’ orange hues add colour to an otherwise very neutral, minimalist setup, with unfussy place settings enhancing the elegance of the look while allowing the flowers to take centre stage.

Flowers transform the naked cake too, elevating the simple design to a thing of breathtaking beauty. The wild look of flowers and foliage cascading from top to bottom really adds to the boho vibe, and is perfect for the beach setting.

For the bridal styling, the free-spirited bride’s ruffled dress and cape give her a relaxed, carefree style. They look wonderful blowing in the sea breeze as she walks barefoot across the sand with her groom.

I adore the simplicity of this shoot. Our thanks go to Valeria Mameli for sharing these beautiful pictures…

Beautiful and Unique

“This beach elopement shoot took place in my homeland of Sardinia, in one of the most beautiful and unique places – The Pelosa Beach in Stintino.

“It is a true Sardinian oasis, with turquoise waters and white sands. An ancient sixteenth-century watchtower on La Pelosa beach, the Torre della Pelosa, was part of Sardinia’s marine defence system.

“The colours used in the shoot are warm, and include copper, orange and cream. We used strong materials such as the wedding dress, a unique piece by Elisabetta Delogu, a talented Sardinian stylist. All the work on this shoot brings a spirit of warmth, freedom, personality, origin and land.”
