Inspiration

We're stepping back in time today to marvel at this retro blush pink wedding inspiration at Elmley Nature Reserve by Emma from Epic Love Story Photography. Channelling our inner Farrah Fawcett with a sweeping fringe, floppy hat and 70s wedding dress whilst surrounded by vibrant flowers, table decor and all the cool vibes.

VISION

Modern edgy 70ʼs boho with a huge emphasis on pretty modern florals.

INSPIRATION & STYLING

"We wanted to make the most of the amazing views at Elmley so opted to create our intimate ceremony outside overlooking the nature reserve. What an amazing place to say your vows, the views are stunning! We selected dark wood Loopback chairs alongside an aisle of vintage rugs to create the perfect walkway to the floral pillars that framed the scenery beyond. See Rose Floral & Victoria Charlotte Floral designs worked their magic on these stunning creations using a mixture of anthuriums, roses, ranunculus & gypsophila to create the colourful pillars either side of the aisle. The mixed vintage rugs from The Toast had a great bohemian feel to the ceremony but with the contemporary florals, it gives a real modern twist to the look." - Emma Epic Love Story

FAHION

"See Rose Floral created a stunning contemporary bouquet with gold sprayed palms, roses, orchids and anthuriums which worked really well with all of the fashion looks created by Love in Lace Bridal. The fashion styling for the shoot was inspired by 70ʼs boho glam with beautiful dresses and skirts from the new Kent based bridal boutique Love in Lace Bridal. The 70ʼs look influenced the whole shoot with the smoky eye makeup, heavy fringe, bright and bold pops of colour throughout." - Emma Epic Love Story

Blush Pink Wedding

The absolutely gorgeous blush pink wedding decor completely consumes this wonderful 70s wedding inspiration. Ranging from pastel peaches to vibrant corals, filling the delightful tablescape with cut glass, coloured tableware and matching floral stems and arrangements. Everywhere you look, you are wowed by incredible details styled to perfection by Butler & White.

TABLESCAPE

"The table is layered with shades of pink, peach and amber tones and full of contrasting textures. Coloured glassware is really effective for adding subtle hints of colour to the table, we used three different glasses here in three different shades. Ceramic vases and stoneware pots are used to hold are favourites, ranunculus. Weʼve used gold as an accent colour to add a touch of glamour to the table. Modern gold cutlery, gold calligraphy and the old gold coloured candlesticks add just enough glam to bring a modern edge to the rustic barn. The loopback chairs from Coordination Hire work perfectly against the rustic wood table. Wooden plates sit upon contemporary pink dinner plates and the look is completed with modern stationery designs by Lou Paper. We opted for Perspex place names with calligraphy to complete the place settings, these modern designs look great against the rustic wood table." - Emma Epic Love Story

CAKE

"Fairy Dust Bakery created the wonderfully modern Buttercream and White Chocolate Brushstroke Cake to complement the look. The cake had a smooth buttercream finish with the edges flecked with gold. Decorated with white chocolate brushstrokes, coloured and painted to fall in with the blush, ivory and gold colour palette of the shoot. It's such a dreamy cake! Styling tip – We used the floral ceremony stands to create a floral backdrop for the amazing cake! It's great to make the best use of all the flowers on your wedding day. The stands were really versatile and worked really well as a floral backdrop." - Emma Epic Love Story
