navy & coral wedding party

I always find it lovely when couples are able to find a wedding venue that doesn’t just tick the boxes of budget, location and service, but when it has an extra-special meaning too.  Alisa & Dermot tied the knot on his family farm in South Africa, nestled in the Stellenbosch mountains with stunning views of the surrounding countryside.   With guests travelling from all over the world to celebrate their marriage (Alisa is from New Zealand) it was the perfect place for them to bring their families together.  They chose a classic navy scheme with a pop of coral – picked up perfectly in the flowers using local flowers & foliage.  Alisa’s gorgeous illusion neck Pronovias dress may be one of the most well-travelled I know – being purchased in London, taken for fittings in Amsterdam (where they now live) and worn in Cape Town before being flown home with Alisa’s parents to New Zealand!  The glorious scenery, pretty details and romance of their day was captured by b.loved favourite Cheryl McEwan.

White, green & silver elegant cascading bouquet by Blue Sky Flowers

In this month’s Understated Elegant style guide we loved playing with ideas to make a very minimal palette look amazing! I mean, just look at that stunning bouquet!! Isn’t Liz from Bluesky Flowers a total floral genius?  The textures and colours show that even an ‘all white’ colour scheme can look incredible with the right touches! She combined luscious Ivory Duchess de Nemours peonies with Antirrhinum, Dahlia, Astrantia with delicate Astilbe and Queen Anne’s’ Lace. Brunia, Senecio and Eucalyptus foliage in varying shades of silvery greens cascade effortlessly, while a bold black & white striped ribbon adds a modern twist.

bright wedding inspiration

There’s nothing like a bold punch of colour to brighten up your Monday morning!  So this week’s inspiration board is inspired by the frankly tropical weather we’ve had over the past few days – from brilliant blue skies to spectacular thunder & lightening storms it’s felt more equatorial than northern European for most of the week!  I’m not suggesting this is the perfect British wedding scheme – although at a venue like Kew Gardens this could look totally rad!

For a destination wedding – I’m thinking the beautiful remote beaches of Hawaii or Bali – this is the perfect palette.  Don’t be afraid of colour – mix unusual, tropical blooms with gold for a totally luxe look.  I love the idea of paper tassels fluttering in the breeze – a super easy way to bring your own but of DIY to a destination venue! But most of all with this one, you’ve got to have fun with floral crowns and pineapple place settings all adding to the ‘totally tropical’ taste!
