You can tell it's the season of love as everywhere you look you are inspired by romantic settings, beautiful blooms and vibrant colour schemes. Today's wedding inspiration styled by destination wedding planners, Dreams in Style, is a luxurious black and red colour scheme bought to life with gold accents, floral prints and arrangements. There is also a stunning black two-piece and an immense dessert table because if Valentine's Day isn't a time to get out your best little LBD and indulge then, I don't know when it is.


Black-burgundy/red were the dominant colours of our palette, while off-white pieces and gold details completed the design, giving a luxury touch.


"We got inspired by the famous Flemish still life painting, which is eminent in the invitations and the rest of the stationery concept that was consisted of paper cones, menu cards, table numbers and place cards, all designed by our super talented graphic designer Atelier Invitations. Our florist Fevronia Luxury Concepts based on our vision, brilliantly put together the flowers that would make the ultimate centrepiece and flower arrangements. Red gerberas, pale pink roses, fuchsia cymbidium orchids, eucalyptus in its natural colour and a few eucalyptus branches painted black gave the gorgeous result we were looking for. No one would disagree that a core part of the art de la table is due to the right selection of dinnerware. White Lilac Rentals has a unique collection of tabletop pieces that make an integral part of luxury design. The pieces used for the styled shoot were carefully selected and were a match made in Heaven with the stationery and the flower arrangements. Blackwater and wine glasses, a beautiful graphite charger plate combined with bread and main course plates in an off white colour." - Rosina from Dreams in Style

Black and Red Colour Scheme

A black and red colour scheme is such a striking way to make a statement. Be that with your table decor, wedding stationery, or floral arrangements, your eyes will instantly be drawn to the complementing hues. - Rosina from Dreams in Style has certainly ensured our eyes have been fixated on her romantic 'Flemish Beauty' vision, treating us to some of the prettiest floral arrangements, clever use of coloured tableware and wonderful on the day wedding stationery designs. Our only problem is, what to pin first!


"Special care was given to the desserts and the cake as well, that were an integral part of the concept. Our super-talented pastry chef Pavlov’s Lab worked his magic and created a variety of jaw-dropping delicacies (cake pops, sugar rocks, cookies, macaroons, and polygon chocolates with edible gold). But, what would a concept be without a wedding gown? Anna Anemomylou, the amazing designer behind Anem Collections designed an oh-so-romantic short sleeve lace dress with a lovely v-neck and an elegant open back that our gorgeous model supported brilliantly. Apart from the wedding gown, a black nightgown was also part of the concept that our stunning model made it look even more stunning, that along with the wavy hair and the natural makeup by Frantzeska Koukoula completed the look. Ktima Orizontes, situated in the suburbs of Athens is a lush 7.5 acres of land, palm trees, waterfalls and two large swimming pools that compose a dreamy setting, was the ideal venue for our styled shoot and we can’t say thank you enough. Of course, none of this would see the light if it weren’t for our amazing photographer Vasilis Kouroupis, who’s got the Midas touch and turns everything into gold and our super talented videographer Panagiotis Kastanidis." - Rosina from Dreams in Style

If the sight of this black and red colour scheme is fueling a desire deep within and you want to see more, luckily for you we've also recently shared another inspired shoot full of red wedding flowers, a fringed wedding dress and pink bridal boots. It's worth taking a look for the bridal accessories alone!
